Based on an old gamemaker game back in the yoyogames era called "Escalator World" by LeGuy. It's one of my favorites; one of the few I made sure to download before the yoyogames forums were lost to time...

But not lost forever! I found it again at https://www.yygarchive.org/game/38760, thanks to honno and archive.org
