I drew a lot of inspiration from Titan Souls and Hyper Light Drifter when making this game. This game wears its inspirations on its sleeve.  Thank you in advance for playing, it means so much to me. I spent roughly a year on this game, working on it alongside my fulltime job. There were many points at which I reworked the game entirely, but I'm glad it turned out the way it did. I will appreciate literally any feedback anyone has on the game!

Hey gave this a little shot, it's fun, lots of ideas here, really loving the bosses and enemies. Can't say the platforming is much fun though, more frustrating than not

Wow, thanks so much for playing! I agree, the platforming came out a little clunky. Glad you enjoyed the fights though, that tended to be most peoples' favorite part too!
