-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 5/10/2015 04:43

I'm speechless...

So good!

L3V147H4N (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2015 07:56

Jizz ... In ... My Pants! .............. It's too awesome, the movement, the contrast ..... Love it!

dyluck (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/30/2014 05:16

I would pay AAA price to play this game. Its style is just... amazing.

Skydsgaard (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/26/2014 11:08

Thanks a lot dudes! :):):)

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 2/20/2014 13:22

Looked through the devblog. Seriously digging this. Love the art style and your animations are fantastic. 

RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/27/2014 20:16

I am not in the mood to get involved into another such silly "debate".

All the more I am glad to see your response is pretty much perfect.

You tread with care between practical sense and amusing anecdote.

She looks self-confident, competent and badass -- with a wink.

Rather than sexualized, she is athletic, her tools task-oriented.

But that does not mean she must be a total kill-joy in everything.

This scene is a tasteful sneak peak, not the last word on her definition.

It maintains an interesting ambiguity, not full-on tease for the only reason.

The quirks of it add to character, beyond killing machine or sex toy.

And quite the narrative that she is the human core within that thing.

Whatever issues people project into this, of all things, is their problem.

And you have no obligation to appeal to everyone -- that's not a fault.

Obviously you did not make it a dedicated effort to offend anyone.

People also have responsibility to moderate their resentments.

Keep on rocking, you and your heroine. Just fun and games.

Thank you for all this pixel love and for taking the time to comment!!

There has been a lot of controversy about the pantie-thing but to avoid copy-pasting, you can read it my response here, if you are interested :)
So, glad you liked how things are going, more to come! :)

adamSrgnt (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 1/26/2014 22:43

I love your style in both pixel art and animation.  Can't wait to see more.

Brink (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 1/26/2014 13:25

Checked out the link, everything looks awesome! I think _Connor is right on the money why Skydsgaard would choose to keep the panties.

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 1/25/2014 11:12

If I were a robot, I too would require the removal of trousers.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 1/24/2014 13:16

I vote yes for the panties

TerraIncognita (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/24/2014 03:25


_Connor (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/23/2014 18:32

Got to agree with that secv, but while thinking about it couldn't come up with an alternative. I mean she could wear something less revealing underneath, but logically it's not like shes in public, so why would she? The pants aren't going to fit comfortably in the mech, and she needs to wear the mfor protection assuming shes working in some kind of garage. End of the day unless you're some peverted 12 year old it really doesn't matter. It doesn't even compare to zero suit samus. I mean look how nintendo modelled her in the first place. They were obviously trying to create fanservice.

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 King Checker) @ 1/23/2014 13:44

This is awesome. And I like the panties.

Also, the character is cool so I hope she is not in the mecha the whole game. I like her animations.

secv (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/23/2014 11:11

The whole panties bit ruins it for me to be honest, which is a shame because the ideas for the menus and the execution are great. It reminds me of raunchy pictures people draw of Samus and how sexualized she's become outside of the suit. On one hand you have an armored mercenary, and the other you have a skin-tight suit with a whip for a weapon. It sends a mixed message.

Why bother wearing pants in the base at all if they come off to get in the mech? If the idea is to have fan service or be perverted, that's fine go for it. But if that's not the plan and you'd like for this character to have a story or personality, having them strip on the title screen (so within 10 minutes of starting the game) is doing them a disservice.

shmupstick (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/23/2014 05:02

Marvelous idea for a menu. Just super!

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/22/2014 17:25

This is great, reads well.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 1/22/2014 08:52

Cool stuff!

Get this on Steam so I can give you moneys :D

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 1/22/2014 08:20

Holy shit, yes. 

Altourus (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 1/22/2014 08:12

That is steller. I'd play that game

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 1/21/2014 21:25

This is a beautiful style for a game! It tickles me in funny places.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/21/2014 17:29

Pretty awesome =D

Only thing that bugs me is the way the climbing anim (pants) is made messy by obscuring foreground elements.

Skydsgaard (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/21/2014 11:03

Thanks a lot for taking the time to comment guys, really appreciated

@ADrawingMan Thanks!! 

@CELS ahahah you can keep the ones that you need to play the game, the other ones we can try... ebay? XD
@greenraven Wooo! I didn’t know this feature, I have to check this out, thanks a lot for the advice
Thank you! 
@Darth Mandarb okok, I already put a little more of love to the preview :)
@Baianinho Thanks ^___^
@jalonso yep, the intrigue was the idea, glad you like it :D
Thanks a lot! 
Well, I see your point but it's always the same when there is a big boom like the indies are experiencing these days. As a gamer, for me is just fantastic because I love them and there is more to pick between. As a developer, it's very difficult to stick out when the market is so saturated. But anyone can try to make their dreams come true, no matter what, and here we are :) 
Personally, I enjoy Path to the Sky's style and I can’t wait to play it. I don’t have a problem with the influence/inspiration from FEZ (or not), because FEZ was incredibly beautiful and I enjoyed it as a 7-year-old kid :)
Anyway, super glad that a critic person as you like our game!!! 
@skeddles I will add a little contrast to the bg, I am having a lot of feedback about poor readability ^_^U
@Delicious More soon! :):)

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 1/20/2014 19:03

I really like that. More please.

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/20/2014 19:03

Lovely, I like the subtle background

_Connor (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/20/2014 18:49

I hope this game is released before more idiots bring out terrible games with this scale of pixel art. There are some really good games with low res but well designed art coming out recently, and also alot of terrible ones trying to jump on the bandwagon ruining it for everyone :\

edit: to clarify,

Things like this, trying to look like awesome games such as S&S or FEZ, but lacking the skill to pull it off.

On the other hand, your game has a similar low res style but still manages to fill it full of properly balanced detail that's a pleasure to look at.

lourivalmaia (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/20/2014 18:40

Incredible describes that work properly.

RAV (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/20/2014 16:21

Sweet spot of boy joy.

Retronator (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/20/2014 15:59

Yes, please!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/20/2014 15:57

hehe, I actually found the preview full of intrigue and with a promise to deliver...and it does.

Baianinho (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/20/2014 14:59

Oh god! Good work!

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/20/2014 14:50

Seriously... that preview is HORRIBLE in comparison here.  I almost didn't click on this.  Great animation/atmosphere!  Update that preview though :)

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/20/2014 14:29

Heyo! This is great!

Franuka (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 1/20/2014 13:41 So many incredible pixel projects coming out lately...these are good days for indie.

Pixelart_kid (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/20/2014 13:38

Hey it´s awesome!! Good Work!!

pavanz (Level 4 Satyr) @ 1/18/2014 13:12

Good lord, this is awesome. Good Luck!

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/18/2014 07:05

Don't be shy about submitting a news article for your game. And good luck.

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 1/18/2014 04:41

So, without going completely overboard with enthusiasm, here... is there any way I can legally donate my organs in order to fund this game?

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/18/2014 04:37

Wow... just wow. It's hard to describe how much I love this . The backround is amazing, you even got an awesome atmosphere too. That animation where she jumps into the mech is spot on too.... I love this!
