I had a few issues with the controls (the attack is a little unresponsive at times) and sadly I couldn't beat the boss, even after trying many many many times but I still LOVED this!!

I loved the video :D It takes a while to get used to controls.
I'm glad you liked it!

Nice game! I finished the demo, then i checked your twitter and... There is a boomerang? I didnt found it! :o Maybe the boss would be easier with that! T_T

Im looking forward tho, i really liked that game, i wanna know what's happening in town :D
(Also there is a wanderer npc? Mmh, maybe ill retry that demo to find out these things :o )

Hey thanks for playing! The boomerang isn't implemented in the Demo!
But yeah the Wanderer gives you a small quest!

If you haven't seen it yet, I'm hoping to get the part of the evil bad guy, you know, as his voice... jk showing off some gameplay with funny commentary.

hope you enjoy


Really cool!

Looks nice but the controls I think need work. Especially the responsiveness, it takes way too long for the attack move to initiate. Also, she's kinda slippery when moving. :) 

Following to check out future builds.

Been following you for a while now, and it's awesome to finally get to try your game! It's pretty freaking cool. Love the environment and animations. 

Thanks a lot! did you find the Enemies too hard?

The bats early on were annoying at first, but I think that just had to do with adjusting to the controls and not running into walls lmao. But once you get the controls down, nah not too hard tbh!
