“We are sorry the port took a little bit longer than expected, we thank you for your patience and we’re happy Mac & Linux users finally get a chance to play the game 🙂
Everything should work fine, but please let us know if you have any issues running the game on Mac or Linux so we can troubleshoot as soon as possible.
Thanks again for your patience, and stay tuned for the upcoming console release! :-)”

Hence the main character is weak and vulnerable, forcing the player to use skill and timing to avoid combat whenever possible. Yet well worth the adventure, creating nice mix to the challenge for an adventure platformer.
