Okay, level 23 is definitely bugged or something. I can't figure out any way to get the wildebeest out, at all. They can't go through the area on the left with the water shrine, even with the rocks cleared. They also can't go through the upper pass on the right after the boulders are cleared. Do they absolutely have to go through the lower right pass or something?

This level is amazingly frustrating, since only the earthquake shrine on the right side of the level gets unblocked by Relic's quake, and I only get 2 earthquake powers. They apparently need to be used to clear the exact correct 2 passes, and not the water shrine or seed shrine, unless I somehow overlooked some way of getting more earthquakes in this map.

I discovered a bit of an oversight in level 19. I ended up just restoring a path through the pollution, because I thought "3 groves" meant 2 groves and the resting tree, oops. The game let me complete the level anyway, except it bugged out at the end and wouldn't actually finish, so I had to restart/quit.

Top and bottom of screen are cut off on 21:9 ultra widescreen monitors.

Thanks for the report! We're aware of issues with most non-16x9 resolutions and it's on our patch list. 

I played the demo that was brought to TCAF 2ish years ago. I'm very excited to play it in full.

Hey thanks for stopping by! That TCAF was one of the best events we ever went to. Everyone who played was super chill and kind. Enjoy the game!

I haven't finished this game but I love it! I noticed an error in the description though: the average session is not "a few minutes" but several hours.

You're right! The game takes about 3-6 hours to complete. I think that average session time might be driven by players though as I don't seem to be able to change it. Thank you so much for taking time to comment and play! <3 

Looks super sweet, is a Linux version coming in future?
