Just beat it this morning in one swift sitting. Couldn't put it down and had to see the ending. Really great stuff for anybody into meta games like Pony Island or Doki Doki Literature Club, but in precision platformer style. It does seem to have some lore connected to the developer's other work which I haven't checked out yet, but it isn't necessary to know a single thing to get the full experience or even enjoy the story presented. Perfectly fine as a standalone, hit it up for sure.
