Workshop support is now live!

It's been a busy year with a lot of unexpected delays, but I am proud to announce that starting tonight Prompt has full Steam Workshop support! You can upload levels you've created in the editor and download all the levels you want from the community.

While this is the most exciting part of the 1.4 update, there are a ton of important bug fixes and optimizations included. Some of you will be very glad to hear that Prompt no longer requires a Java installation to run, and it is entirely compatible with SteamOS! Controller support is also now much more refined, and should work seamlessly with most setups.

I would also like to say thank you to everyone who has bought and supported my game on Steam. It means a lot to me as a lone developer just starting out, and your responses have been invaluable. Keep being awesome!

This is a simple platformer with just a double jump, focused mostly on precise (sometimes pixel-perfect) movement. But it managed to show that this is not necessarily a bad thing.

I like that the height of the jump can't be controlled (like it usually is by holding the button longer); there are surprisingly many small moments where you really have to think how to utilize such jumps.

The retro aesthetics are quite nice but I turned off the effects for better competitive play. Music and sounds are good.

So this game has some teething troubles, but I can still recommend it. I'll write my review in list form for a better overview:

PROs:

+ Easy and accurate controls
+ Many graphic options
+ Easy to roam menu system
+ Level editor
+ Super fast respawn on death

CONs:

- Xbox 360 controller-compatiblaty, but none with the more recent Xbox One controller
- Later levels are rather cheap than challenging
- Achievements are bugged, you may receive ones for actions not yet completed
- Annoying music

So overall I'd give this game a 7/10. It isn't too hard either, you will get the hang of the controls rather soon and breeze through the levels. I played for 3 hours until finishing the game including collecting all keys.

Prompt is good if you remember using computers back when the UI of this game was (more or less, minus some nice effects) the UI of everything. If you're good at platform games and are agile with your WASD keys then this will keep you occupied probably for a couple to a few hours.

Is it worth the price? Depends if you like puzzle platformers, but if the game has caught your eye and you have a couple of hours to kill you could do a lot worse. At the end of the day it's less GBP than can be counted on one hand.

Randomly go on the left in the middle of a jump.

This game is hard in the best way possible. It's a great platformer and the levels are very well put together. The fake CRT screen refresh rate line was getting on my nerves after awhile. Great art style and very fluid controls. If you're a fan of platformers, I'd buy it at any price point, if you're on the fence, I'd wait till for a sale.

I like it - seems really fun so far. I would only wish the more of the ASCii character set was used for a real DOS/UNIX look like in the retro early-early 90's, 16:9 support would look approperate on my PC's monitor or TV. No loading issues or anything with my GTX980/i7 4930k. Also - custom refresh rates would serioustly be nice! (how does this work currently? Does it use system?) I have a 144hz with strobe support (BenQ XL2720Z) and platforms have that beautiful CRT feel when I can kick it to 144fps @ 144hz :D

Defently worth $5 - should make a PS Vita port of this.
