Wait, THE Edmund and Florian? Coil? Tri-arachnid? Gish?  Kiss

The gameplay feels very tight. It's easy to understand while still allowing room for player skill to show through. I like how the arrows make sure you don't get lost, since the sky doesn't offer much in the way of landmarks. I love the little details, like the voiceovers reflecting progress and the nauseous expressions on the hobo's faces when you spin too much. Multiplayer seems like it could get crazy, with each player having to work together. It's minor, but the hobos voices aren't really distinguishable from each other on my end, and it would be good if the main menu showed a high score instead of just the one from the last play session. Regardless, from a few quick playthroughs, this feels very well polished and fun. Smiley

Do you mean Edmund and Florian, or do you mean the two bums?
Or do you mean both?

Our audio guy (the swain) was nice enough to do it all for us. every line in the game was based on something florian had heard a hobo in person Smiley

Haha, single player let's you play a cock and balls.

Maybe I'll find someone for multiplayer because it looks even better.

Really fabulous work. Excellent line-art style, and I really enjoyed the dialogue. The gameplay didn't have a lot of depth, so I didn't play for a really long time, but this left a lasting impression because of the sheer amount of character you packed into it. The 'death' screen and dialogue were the icing on the cake, for me.

This one is brilliant, especially playing it two player. I couldn't help but chuckle as my rocket span out of control and was pulled along by his little friend. One complaint though, I found it difficult to keep track of which was my hobo in two player mode. Not sure how you could resolve that without adding colours, which probably wouldn't fit the style. Really enjoyed this. Thank you. Good stuff.

That was really cool.  The art style and audio make this game.  I liked the minimalist HUD too.  Having the damage left for the ship be somewhat unknown, but represented by the crumpling of the nose cone was a good touch.
