Edit: Forgot to mention, but there is a speedrun mode you can enable/disable from the menu.

Edit 2: Fixed a couple visual errors and balance tweaks. Also made the speedrun mode skip the intro cutscene, and also shows your final time on the very end message screen (after the final cutscene).

Cool game! I think I got a speedrun time that's pretty hard to beat.

The scrolling was a little annoying, as it (possibly intentionally) really restricted how much far ahead I can see. Also, the popup that appears when you run out of fuel can actually block your view of what's going on, which is really annoying when you've got a shaft set up so that you can jump up without fuel, but the popup blocks your view.

Thanks for playing! :) The scrolling could possibly be tightened up a bit, but I have also gotten feedback that people liked the bit of mystery it leaves, so it's hard to say. I agree about the "stuck?" popup, though. I need to just move it to the other side of the screen, depending on where you are in the camera view.

I also have added an upgrade that lets you dig upward too. (But it uses to dig charges to do it.) If you have ideas for other upgrades, I'm happy to hear them. :D

I have a couple ideas for easter eggs I want to include as well, and hopefully I have enough tokens to add them.

And wow, that is an impressive speedrun. O_o I don't think even I could beat that haha.

Well, this is a real gem of a game. Superb balance. It all comes together very nicely.
Hopefully you get more eyeballs on this one. Not to be missed.
