Feedback from the experts
Nathan Lie: A game with a truly interesting take on a puzzler. Absolutely love having to make more decisions than "take the quickest path to target". With the "past-self" mechanic, both the path the player takes and the speed at which they do it become vitally important choices. Really enjoy the sarcastic tone of the narration as well. A few animations here and there could add some personality to go with the tone of the setting as well.
Jupiter Hadley: I love the opening story.
The graphics are also well done and it's a very good puzzle game. Great entry.
