is it possible to post levels or anything? like, in a mario maker-esque way? even if not, it's still a great game.

There's no way to upload them online from within the game but you can always export them on the screen after selecting it in the "edit existing list" and sharing the file on my Discord server :)

Thanks a lot btw!
