A short first-person parkour game about searching for love high and low AND ALSO shooting red objects with a big, fat revolver. Mirror's Edge crossed with Titanfall 2 with the artstyle of Killer7.

Based on, named after and featuring Israeli rock song "Noga Mechapeset Tzedek" by Elisha Banai & The Forty Thieves. The game is not sponsored by the band, though you should support them if you liked the song.

[ A DancingEngie production ]

[ Playtime: 10-20 minutes]

inb4: the Hebrew word for "Jupiter" (Tzedek) also means "justice".
This means the original song's title and chorus can be interpreted as "Venus looks for (a) Jupiter", "Venus seeks justice", or both. The original pun was unfortunately lost in translation.
Nevertheless, the game is based around the first interpretation. don't @ me hebrew speakers

something that i realised while playing the game is that venus is a girl. and we are searching for jupiter... well turns out that in roman religion there are gods, and two of them are "jupiter" and "venus", jupiter is a dude and venus is a girl... is this game shipping two roman gods? or are they a couple in roman religion? idk roman religion is literally greek religion copy and pasted lmao

super amazing game!
definitely going to put a few hours into speedrunning it.



Great Game (Wish it was longer)

I absoluty loved this game!


This game was genuinely AMAZING! One of, if not the best indie games I've played! Everything from the graphical quality, to the soundtrack and sequence triggers, to the movement system and satisfying targeting system! Honestly an example of a perfect indie game! 11/10!

Wow, that is a neat game. Really reminded me of how much I love playing Mirrors Edge. One of my favorite games ever. It was fun playing this, didn't run into any bugs either.


Really enjoyed the game! The music was great and the parkour action was non stop! Had an absolute blast! Hope you enjoy the video! 


I couldn't reach the end of the game but I love it


A very nice short, even if the story was a bit minimalistic.

Thank you for this game. I thought it was really special.


good and short game


Best anime intro ever ;) No really great game


Nice game, was quite the experience. Well done!


good game it better than mirror edge

the movement can be a little more smooth maybe

Maybe add more sensitivity to the game, I feel like I can't really look around. Thanks :)

Is this after modifying your mouse sensitivity in the options menu? If you did and itโ€™s still janky, Iโ€™ll increase the maximum slider value.

Yeah I was on max sensitivity, might be my mouse though.

Hi, just released a patch that expands the sensitivity slidersโ€™ values. Thanks you for your patience and for giving me a heads-up!

I found one more bug that I can fly somehow.

Iโ€™m aware of it. I canโ€™t replicate it for the life of me. Even the speedrunner who originally discovered this bug doesnโ€™t know whatโ€™s causing it. From what I understand it happens in very specific circumstances that do not hinder casual play. Unless this becomes something truly gamebreaking Iโ€™ll let it be, if only for speedruns :)

I have found that the mechanics of that glitch is similar to jumping while crouched (but I'm not sure if that's what causes it) and I have done it twice in two very different circumstances. But in general the game has a lot of bugs but it makes it even more fun to play and speedrun :)


game feels amazing to play, and amazing-er to speedrun.


Thank you very much for playing, O, ื—ืฉืžืืœื™ ืกืžื›ื•ืชื™


This game was very good. I loved the art style, the music, the gameplay itself, everything. Definitely recommend.


A wild and stylish experience with punk rock attitude and a romantic heart beating loud and fast. Loved it!


I'm in love with the art style and the mechanics of this game! Hope you make more like it!

good work! great game


I gotta hand it to you Engie, this is a great game. With the subtle planet sightseeing reference at the window at the beginning referencing the game's title, to the overall blazing fast mechanics of the game itself, everything works together so neatly and creatively into a short and sweet package of fun. I didn't see the speedrun mode in my video, but I will surely try it on my own time! Anyways, whoever is reading this, have a good day.

this game was short and sweet, and so fun! i enjoyed the mechanics and it was generally beautiful to look at. unfortunately i never saw the speedrun mechanic pop up after my playthrough, but the community there is awesome too! https://youtu.be/uSuKkS-TSiQ


great game! i saw that it had a speedrun.com link and as a result this is the first game i've somewhat seriously speedran :) keep it up dawg the movement feels great when you can maintain a lot of speed


Really fun, loved the music and platforming, rly recommend <3


very cool game


great game. 10/10


Cool game here's a speedrun


Nice job, put it on speedrun.com


OMG I can't wait to play this it looks super fun Congrats to all the people who worked on this because I can see a lot of work went into this  game


Feels extra smooth right from the menu. Captivating and fun. Nice work! The only things that were a little bit noticeable and could be removed are perhaps the shadow artifacts. Nevertheless, awesome work!
