I loved pretty much everything about it... except the music. It's grating and repetitive, repeating the same melody over and over is a big no-no. It sounds fine (though I'd lower the main melody by an octave), nothing wrong with the chiptune style but it gets old so fast. I wasn't finished playing yet but I turned it off because I couldn't figure out how to turn off the music from inside the game, I found it in the menus though.

If you can't do or afford a soundtrack, for the main gameplay music it's sometimes a good idea to go with downtemp atonal ambient music. It's not hard to make and can be stretched out and looped without becoming obnoxious.

Also, the controller doesn't work on the menu.

Thanks for taking the time to try the demo !

Sorry you didn't like the music ; the full games features multiple sound tracks and switches between them every time the players completes one of the station modules, so every ~5-10mn depending on progress speed. You may like some of the other tracks better, though they're all in the same "theme".

As for the controller, some browsers require a button to be pressed before gamepad support & focus is fully enabled for the page ; menu navigation is supported with a gamepad.
