    Parallax header design with no repainting and a high frame rate. Pretty impressive.

      For sure.

      Looks like they achieved it with 3d CSS transforms, and separate PNGs that have impressively low file sizes. I would guess because each layer mostly uses a single color.

      Edit: For WebKit browsers on Linux and Windows, they also use this: https://github.com/simov/simplr-smoothscroll

        It looks responsibly implemented except for the overall page weight (which is pretty much standard for a game site, I suppose). I don’t really like the pattern in principle, but this is such a lovely example of it, and it performed so well in this case.

    Started the game, only a couple of hours in at the moment; the narrative is quite good albeit a tad linear. Colours & music are amazing. Just need to see if the gameplay holds up in the long run. All in all, a good game; especially considering it's their first release. Recommended!

      I was amazed by the game, it was really exciting (and beautiful of course)! I finished it in 3,5 hours though, a couple of hours less then I expected.

      OT: I have visited this site every now and then for a couple of years just because of the amazing parallax header. Didn't even know that it would be one the games I looked forwards to the must until about one month ago.

      What kind of machine are you running it on? How is the performance? I've been tempted, but also don't want a crap experience either!

        Playing it on a PS4; frame rate is decent even though there are some noticeable drops from time to time but that's to be expected for a first release. Nothing problematic in any case.

    Beautiful. Bought immediately.
