Issues unresolved[edit]

Unable to capture certain objects on Linux build[edit]

Several levels in chapter 3 contain wind that needs to be captured and placed elsewhere in order to progress the level. There is a bug that makes the wind dissipate immediately after placement, effectively preventing progression.
Several levels in chapter 4 contain duplicator that needs to be used to clone yourself in order to progress the level. There is a bug that makes the duplicator not work, effectively preventing progression.
The game can be finished despite these issues if enough stars are collected throughout the rest of the game.

Issues fixed[edit]

Can't move camera with controller[edit]

Move the mouse[2]

Moving the mouse reactivates the camera controls on controller.
