Introducing Paragon Infinite:

Paragon Infinite is an ultra-difficult precision-timing based game which can last forever, but you'll probably become close friends with some spikes long before "forever" happens.

Ride magnetic rails up and down, and (depending on your game platform of choice) tap, touch, press, or twitch to jump off.

Slip through the gaps in the walls, avoid deadly spikes, and collect shiny things to boost your score - but only if you're daring enough to press your luck.

Featuring Electro-Industrial music by Ex Machinae, and original artwork by James Shasha

Real talk:

My name is Mike Lasch and I'm a game developer. I'm getting married to the love of my life next month (Aug 12th! Follow me on Twitter for pics the following days/weeks :3 ), and we are spending our last dime to make sure it's memorable and perfect. My iOS developer account is expiring Aug 1st, and I don't have the cash to renew, since it's all being spent on our wedding (which is of course much more important). It'd be an amazing wedding gift if you would do what you can to share my game, write about it, review it, so that I can make the $100 needed to pay for a renewed dev license! As of today I've raised about $25 through my  30% off sale on  itch.io, and a few purchases on iOS and Android, but I need your help with the rest!

My fiancee and I would absolutely love see any press at all about Paragon Infinite! But at absolute minimum, I hope you find it enjoyable :)
