I played this last night for 30 minutes. Highly enjoyable,a great platformer that requires you to play through the levels multiple times to unlock other levels. This is my only issue with the game and the reason why I stopped playing. I hate backtracking and being forced to replay levels to uncover gems required to unlock new stuff just made me angry. This is just my personality, I'm sure there's plenty of people that like the challenge of going back to previous levels, find new routes and new stuff. 

I loved the visuals and the soundtrack. I was wondering if the soundtrack is available somewhere and if I included it in some videos or twitch streams, if it would be problematic regarding copyright. 

Is Polyroll Pocket going to be released via itch.io? I'd like a DRM-free/Launcher-independent version.


I'm sure it will be.


Such a cool little arcade game! 

Will the itch.io version keep being updated together with the Steam version?

The game is complete and no more updates are planned.

Great, thanks. I try to avoid Steam.

404 when upgrade email clicked also

thanks, did you get the resent email?


yea, got the option. I actually didn’t realize I bought it on steam already previously and didn’t realize. Thanks though


same. Got 404 error when I tired to upgrade

thanks, did you get the resent email?


yall sent me an email talking about an upgrade code but the page 404s


thanks, did you get the resent email?


i did, thank you so much


I played Polyroll last year on my Switch and I found out that there is also the game on itch.io. I really like sonic style games. I made a video about this game if someone is interested on watching it 


this game is pretty dope


Have you thought about doing a physical version for Switch?

Hey, sorry for the delay in answering. It had been considered but I don't think it will happen now since it's been a while since the launch.

I don't quite see why that would have anything to do with doing a physical.

It's a fair amount of work (that might not be obvious) and we've all moved on to other projects at this point.

Woah awesome to see this game came out! I remember seeing it at the Southern Fried Gaming EXPO a few years ago and thought it looked awesome! Definitely going to check this out!


nice! Hope you like it!

Hi! It says that purchase comes with a steam key. How do I access it? Can't find it anywhere.

Hey sorry for the delay in answering this because I just noticed it. Normally the key is available on the download page but itch support has told me in the past that there are some cases where the buyer can't access it right away. I think you maybe should try to open a ticket with them if you still can't get your key. You can email support@itch.io

Thank you for the info, I'll send them an email.

also check the download page again (if you haven't) because it might be there now.


any plans for a linux version? A linux port would be great

Hey, sorry we missed this question. Unfortunately, the engine does not export to Linux and the costs for porting are too high to make sense for us. 

There was a thread on steam about playing it with proton but not sure about that and we can't officially support it.


Can you update the itch version to match the Steam version? It's outdated.

Also I thought it was fully released? Why does it still say "In Development" ?


thanks. we fixed both issues.
