Hi, I bought this as part of Shinyloot Bundle 7, and owned it on Desura. Sadly Desura is no more. I wonder if I could have a key for itch.io? I can email you my Desura or shinyloot key if you like.

The game is based on my 2009 prototype. I have decided to rework it in a substantial way: instead of overcoming horizontal obstacles and progressing sideways, I’ve changed the game to be a vertical climber, which suits the theme of corpse-climbing much better. The game was built using my all-time-favourite Flixel engine.
