The music in the trailer was so beautiful, I really enjoyed it.

Thank you so much I'm glad you liked it,  I really enjoyed writing it

THAT INTRO, and the story, and the audio -- what a joy. 

I was a lil confused on the controls, but eventually picked it up!

Thank you for playing! We plan on having a few updates to the game that will make it more immediately accessible so hopefully that will help others not feel the initial confusion.
