@_J_: Oh man, I really appreciate your feedback on this. A huge priority for me was to make the game shine visually. I LOVE Flash (Newgrounds fan from the old days) and the cartoony style has always suited me well.
Interesting you bring up an alternate animation for the sword attack...it was something on the edge of my mind for a while but never did anything about it. Setting it up would be no issue at all, just a matter of running an RNG to randomly switch the animation. I'm adding this to the list of updates for sure. Thank you for properly putting the issue back in my mind, and Happy Holidays!

First off the game visually is AWESOME, I love this kind of flash animation style. Second off, if there's one thing missing from all of this it's a combo slash animation. That's one of the few things you need to make it feel really there, one slash animation gets kind of lame after a bit, the unly circumstance that would be fine in is if all the enemies were a one shot. Upvoted and cheers!

Great style and artwork! Wish you luck in Greenlight!

@nathanmeunier Thanks for the vote and kind words! This software is amazing, and I finally was able to overcome my programming difficulties when I discovered it.
nathanmeunier Dec 18, 2016 @ 8:01am 
Really dig the art style! Also, super cool to see you're a fellow GameMaker Studio user! :D Upvoted!

@iamapizzacat This was a documented issue when making Mac exports in Game Maker. If you take a look at the text document included with the game, it tells you how to fix it. It's a Permissions issue on your end, and hopefully by the time I release the final, this problem won't pop up anymore. Thanks for stopping by!
iamapizzacat Dec 17, 2016 @ 11:27am 
I downloaded the demo for Mac OSX and it said the file was damaged. Just thought I'd let you know. Sounds like an awesome game—good luck!
dave_draws  [author] Dec 15, 2016 @ 12:32pm 
@deadlockUK: Thanks for the great feedback! I've already addressed some things in my current build of the game (such as getting stuck mid-air), and I'll definitely address these other things as well. I'm so happy to have your support, as you've heard many times from me on Twitter. Cheers!
deadlockUK Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:23am 
So Played the first 30 minutes of the demo. And here is what I have to say

+ Visuals, love them
+ Funny bat pokemon, and also helps a lot and gives hints! Nice
+ Level design, challenging but not impossible
+ Music fits to the atmosphere of the game

- room transitions, no animation between rooms, you simply dissapear
- if you get hit by an arrow midjump close to a wall, you get stuck mid air

So overall, what I think can be improved on are small things that I believe the developer is aware of and will add in the future.

And with that... THUMBS UP and vote YES from me :)

Keep up the great work!

Has someone told Jim Sterling about this yet? He loves Skeletons and this seems like it'd be up his alley for a Greenlight Goodstuff.

@Skyhawke: Thanks for the kind words; I do my best up there :)

@sward8354996: I don't currently have plans for any other weapons besides the sword. But there are ideas for extra magic spells to make up for the limited weapon. Thanks for your vote!
sward8354996 Dec 10, 2016 @ 12:30pm 
Could this game have different weapons likes Salt and Sanctuary or Dark souls? Voted yes.
Skyhawke Dec 10, 2016 @ 11:54am
