The game is super hard. Still, I had a lot of fun playing and laughed out loud when I'd finally get a box where I needed it only to walk into some spikes like a chump. I had some difficulty getting used to the controls, but that's part of the challenge with this game. The first two jumps were littered with my dead chicken corpses. I think your team is off to a great start.

I played for 10 minutes, and only got as far as the first two-box puzzle. That's not a bad thing. I think the appeal with this game is the difficulty, The images make the game look simple, but the challenge is real.

If you added the ability to flap your wings for a little in-air control, I think this game would be hilarious. Also, don't be afraid to ham it up with more chicken sounds. My only complaint was the area in the second room where you have a blind jump. This is also the area shown in your first GIF. That part felt cheap, like I had to spend a death just to figure out where to go next. Otherwise, super fun. Keep it up!
