General information

The game is generated randomly. It is sheer luck to find all of the collectibles.

If you die, quit the game, or turn off the console, you basically lose your progress, with the exception of some permanent unlocks. You cannot “cheat” by backing up your saved game, as you have to close the application and the game will delete the current progress. There are no difficulty levels either, it’s the same game for everyone.
