Note that this is an older build that I am using as a demo. There are a ton of issues in it that I have since resolved. If you do find any bugs, have problems running the game, or just want to get in touch, post in the forum or contact me.

If you have a multi-monitor setup, I would suggest setting the keybinding for "action" to another key such as E. This will prevent you from accidentally clicking outside of the application. The upcoming beta shouldn't have this particular bug.


  • Use the direction keys or W,A,S,D move the player. Press space to jump.
  • Click the left mouse button to interact with objects and manipulate bricks.
  • F5 Quick Saves the game, and F9 Quick Loads it. F8 loads the player at the last checkpoint.
  • The game works best with a keyboard and mouse setup. It currently does not support controllers.
