Mechanics Story/Writing/Dialogue
The voice on the trailer its quite monotonous, would sound better, if some parts has bigger emphasis.
You said it combine the fast paced action of side-scrolling, but, with the images of the trailer it's seems kinda slow.
The web page looks good but instead of having and static front image, why not adding a carousel?
Good luck.

Hello Falling Boy,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. It has helped a lot.
We are looking into a remake of the voice-over with some more ambitious narrative.
Which part of the images in the trailer look slow: the cinematic scenes, or the gameplay scenes? How would you suggest to make it more dynamic (which scenes to take out?
I like the idea about having a carousel.

Starting from the minute 1:00 those scenes i think are the cinematics, they feel kinda slow, probably can be accelerated with faster particles
