Gameplay Instructions
Can be played with Keyboard or any Controller

When flying you will leave a stone pillar trailing behind you. Your character can grind along this pillar by touching it. You are able to aim and fire your weapon when grinding. You can end a grind early by launching yourself off of it.

Keyboard Controls:
Movement - Hold down LEFT MOUSE BUTTON
Steering during Flight - Move MOUSE
Roll - Q & E
Aim (While Grinding) - Hold down RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON
Shoot (While Grinding) - LEFT MOUSE BUTTON while holding RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON
Launch off of a pillar mid-grind - LEFT MOUSE BUTTON
Pause Game - ESC or P

Controller Controls:

Movement - Hold down LEFT TRIGGER
Steering during Flight - Move LEFT THUMBSTICK
Aim (While Grinding) - Hold down RIGHT TRIGGER
Shoot (While Grinding) - LEFT TRIGGER while holding RIGHT TRIGGER
Launch off of a pillar mid-grind - LEFT TRIGGER
Pause Game - Start

Known Bugs

1. Sometimes the player will no longer be able to shoot while grinding. When this bug occurs, attempting to shoot while grinding will launch the player off of the pillar instead of shooting. If this issue occurs, pause the game and restart from checkpoint.

2. While aiming with your guns sometimes the target in your crosshair will sometimes not take damage which is indicated by a lack of a bullet impact sound (Targets which can be damaged are enemy ships and boss weakspots). If this happens try to shoot the target from a different angle or alter your character's angle on the currently grinded pillar using Q or E (LEFT and RIGHT SHOULDER on controller).

3. Overall jankiness (This is a feature - we promise)
