I bought this to use on steam deck and the controls do not map properly. There's janky workarounds but it is not a smooth weekend. Would not recommend on steam deck.

An incredibly creative and well-aged 3D platformer, with levels and abilities that are really well-designed and sometimes break the boundaries of the genre. The story is really well-written as well, with every single character in the cast having a decent level of depth.
