im excited to try this :) I only got into the tutorial, but I can't change the resolution to fit my screen since the accept changes button doesn't show on my screen

Awesome project! The visuals are a feast for the eyes and the rotoscoping effects look incredible! Gameplay-wise, the combat is dynamic and a great challenge. There’s definitely a difficulty curve to be learned playing this game but it is rewarding to master. The amount of different skills to find and the variety of enemies help keeps things interesting as well.

If I had some feedback, I think it takes a little too long to get back into the game after a game over. Having to wait for the title menu and then the game to load feels a bit sluggish.

I have not completed the demo as of this feedback but I definitely want to go back to finish it!

Incredible work on this! Looking forward to more!


Thank you very much for the feedback! I appreciate the comment, and the next demo will for sure include some tweaks to further improve the experience :)
