I tried the demo , but the game freezes up when I try to start a new game or try to start the tutorial. I tried pressing all the buttons/ mouse, but nothing would work. The menu worked fine though

The tutorial freezes on this screen:

I bought the game and have the same issue. The tutorial sticks there, pressing F3 makes the character spasm a bit slower, but the game doesn't take any other input. In the normal game it gets stuck the same way when you start a new game, but the character stays in the bed ignoring the keyboard commands.

Same behavior for me... I hear sound effects but the little guy just sits there.

Game looks sick. It reminds me of RCR or something.

will you release this on steam too when it's complete?

Love the mechanics and quirky character designs. The enemies are interesting and there's a surprising amount of depth to the combat such as hopping on heads, stealing weapons, and what appears to be parrying.

My only complaint with the current(unfinished) version is that the normal and hard difficulties are too easy and 'cruel' is sometimes simply unfair because of random enemy AI paired with the increased speeds. The skeleton sidestep move for example becomes ridiculous and feels cheap when you're already in a lot of trouble.

I would prefer if harder modes focused on enemies being smarter, more numerous, more strategically placed, and more aggressive as well as adding challenge to the environment such as spikes and tricky jumps.

I miss the prototype but I am very much looking forward to the new direction. Best of luck.

long live thee!

Love the graphic style! Will play it soon. ;)

I've only played the demo so far and while I do love it, I found myself getting stuck because progressing required abilities I was unaware I had. While you better believe Imma buy this with some of my Christmas cash, a tutorial would really help.

Thanks! Working on a tutorial as a centerpiece of the next update. Happy holidays! :D

Can you link to a Youtube video of this game? I can't find one.
