This game is best experienced as intended in the 3D version, via the downloadable files provided. A browser version for the 2D part might be added later. Also, the current version might be unstable and quite buggy, hence you can use the level selection, but also the developer mode with [V] to skip to the next level. Versions for Mac and Linux have not been tested.
