How do I play this? The rabbit is only moving on a straight line and it won't jump or walk up the hill - which keys do I need to press?

I loved the concept of this game! Actually playing through the painting as the bunny was awesome. I really, really hope to see more like this and longer games. Great job! Feel free to check out my video below :)

Gave it a go...

Is a linux version possible?

Hi, it might be possible! :) I have no way of testing it, so there is no guarantee it will run smoothly. I will try to fix it as soon as I can, probably sometime this week. 

Hey, if you want to you can send me the debug version so i can see if something's wrong

I have uploaded a linux version now, sorry for the delay! :) Let me know if it doesn't work and I will do my best to fix it. 







short yet sweet. beautifully made game.
