I woul play this game as I generally really like this style of gaming and certainly like what I am seeing so far!
septeries Apr 28, 2014 @ 9:48pm 
Played the demo and wow nice music, it's modern yet has an old school sound to it.
Reminds me of castlevania or similar style game and that's one of my favorite 2D genre.

Needs a lot of polish, but it looks promising. I'll wait to see some progress before voting.

Looking good. As some have stated, the character animation could be improved. I'd also suggest adding something to the backgrounds, the levels look sort of barren and undetailed.

Can't wait to see the final product though. The gameplay looks like it's shaping up well and you're definitely getting a thumbs up from me.
Boats And Hoes Sep 14, 2013 @ 7:18am 
Apart from the animation this lookes great!

Clearly a lot of work has gone into it, but it may not be suitable for today's market.
INDIE:J May 14, 2013 @ 11:51am 
Gameplay looks good, character animation needs to be improved. Tracking this one. Good luck.
Princess Dajve <3 Apr 28, 2013 @ 4:57pm 
Looks good, but the title is kind of silly.
Grognard_87 Apr 20, 2013 @ 5:21am 
I agree you should update the video as for the moment it looks a little like your standard flash game project.
Swagnominal Apr 19, 2013 @ 6:12pm 
Looks like a modified version of Mario Bros
Celebrimnar Apr 11, 2013 @ 8:01am 
I will save my vote for later, you get funded, so now you can have a proper artist and designer. Please upload a video as soon as you improve the game
AtomBlade Apr 8, 2013 @ 6:03pm 
so, the game is currently better than the video says huh? ok, update the video soon, then ill vote up if it looks better.

I wanted to touch base with save points and a map. We had thought these would make the game easier then we intended. Having a map is good in a lot of games but we want this game to be about exploring our maps and finding collectables. As for save points, we believe that each map is long enough to present a challenge for completion based on your health points but short enough to allow for breaks in between maps. As always we want to make the game enjoyable and if enough people do not like this we will have another look at it.
RiderGames  [author] Apr 5, 2013 @ 11:18am 
Hey guys keep up the constructive comments, the game has changed completely. Even the demo needs to be updated since the last time we posted it. Sword now only has a 1 hit sequence and Jump has been given more gravity to hold down Vincent. background variance is at an all time high and our mobs are being looked at to balance the maps. Thanks again everyone!

I love 2D platformers and this looks like a fun game, but I'm a bit of a graphics elitist as well... I love old school graphics, however the animations and graphics for this game looks too simple and frankly a bit lazy. I'm afraid they probably would detract from the game experience and enjoyment.
commodore256 Mar 28, 2013 @ 12:47pm 
I played the Demo. (The visuals have changed since the video was made, it looks better)

I like the music, (there should be more varriety) but the plot isn't very good and if you're going for metroidvaina, you should have a map and save points. If you want good metroidvaina, get un-epic.
Orfeo Mar 19, 2013 @ 12:38pm 
I wanted to upvote, but the main character's animations bug me too much. He's always standing up straight, even at a full run.
DONE Mar 18, 2013 @ 1:00pm 
Graphics too simpe
Chillin' Mar 18, 2013 @ 10:59am 
Sword's not an instakill, definitely. I recommend trying out the demo which is here:
http://www.ridergames.ca/portfolio/darkenedlight/

Speaking of RG you guys should make that info more available here (unless I'm blind) by tossing a direct link via discussion or something. I had to get to it by clicking your IndieDB page and then your official site on the right side, some people would miss it or wouldn't want to look.

Se ve interesante y entretenido.
Nargubyte Mar 16, 2013 @ 4:19pm 
Looks fun and innovative, but it seems as if that sword is an instakill. Might want to consider nerfing that or players experienced in this genre could easily speedrun the game. But other than that, excellent gameplay, nice oldschool graphics, and a overall a great 2D platformer. Up-voted!
A3AS-X Mar 16, 2013 @ 2:06pm 
We need more 2D plataform games!
Chillin' Mar 16, 2013 @ 8:44am 
Demo is a major improvement in gameplay from the original. It's giving me this side-scrolling Ys feel now which I like. Just gotta work on them animations a bit still as well as the graphics (Bigger trees and statues, bit more variance in tiled textures, etc.).

Keep at it!
RiderGames  [author] Mar 15, 2013 @ 12:31pm 
The game has changed massively. I would encourage everyone to give our demo another try. You can find it at our website. Thanks everyone.
Jeasonfire Mar 12, 2013 @ 11:42am 
Mana-bar doesn't make it a RPG. It's just an action-platformer.
Bootfailure Mar 12, 2013 @ 12:08am 
i dunno why but it looks like Megaman meets Shinobi when looking at the graphics here.
