December 2017 Update
Hello Steam Community!

It's been a little over a year, so it's probably time for another update on Steam!

Thank you all for your interest in this project. To answer your most important question - yes - this game is still being developed! I had plans to have it finished by October of this year, but things in life happened and caused delays. Unlike a large gaming company, when a life event happens, the game development stops for a bit, so it's caused some delays. Anyways, everything is getting back on track and I'll be doing my best to play catch-up and finish this game as soon as possible while still giving it the love that it needs/deserves. I appreciate all of your patience and I'll try to release before Chasm does!

I hope you all have a great holiday! Thanks for your understanding and support!

I have been wanting to play a game like this since SotN which I actually owned and played back in '97. I've purchased many "metroidvania" platformer style games on Steam, and the Dark Flame demo I played from the Patreon page had me entertained more than any of the other games I've played. I will certainly pay full price for this when it's released.

Any updates so far? 30. August 2016 is far to long without any news, or?

Fans would like to know what is going on. At least some words every month would be appreciated. :O)
