Super Cool! I only wish there was a way to snap the camera to the box without moving the environment/box.

Thank you for playing our game!
Do you think that if the camera would recenter in the box after 1/2 seconds of loosing it, it would help?

The Art is good, the concept seems really interesting, but the game stutters a lot here :/

Thank you!
The game really is abusing the Physics engine =/ try reducing resolution/quality in the Windows/Mac versions
