Excellent game, the 1st spot on the Innovation rating category was well deserved! Having us actually study the letter shapes on our keyboard was a fun experience.
I'm not sure I would have figured out the last level without @thrainsa's input, that was pretty original as well.
I really like how there are several solutions to each level, for instance in the screen near the ending when you have to go below the wall then up again, I managed to pull off a I/O/H combination (with only 1 HP remaining :P) but I have no idea if that was the "original solution".
With more contents I assume each player would eventually come up with helpful combinations to learn and reuse according to each situation, which could be pretty cool. I've read that you're already working for a post-compo version with a lot more puzzles, I'm really curious to see more cool stuff being made around this core mechanic!
