Loved the art style! Gameplay and FX seems very fluid!

Keep it up! :D

Thanks :D

Absolutely, considering we've pre-planned a huge amount of the game already and implemented most of Flynns abilities and attacks, it makes it a lot easier to design on paper beforehand. Granted there will be tweaks and minor changes in the conversion, but I find it's so much better than working it out on the fly.

Great idea for combat. Combos look very cool, and should be a lot of fun to experiment with.

You guys are all so kind, thanks for the feedback!

We've really focused hard on the combat, combos and general feel of them overall this week. I'm forever tweaking it in the engine but it's important to us that it's satisfying and rewarding so we've now introduced a hit chain bar, that decreases overtime, but each successful hit notches it up (on a per damage done basis, so it's fair with all weapons). Once said bar is full, you have a couple of seconds to perform a special attack which vary depending on the weapon, this is done by holding RT to 'arm' it, then attacking. After the attack, the special is then on a cooldown for a little time.

Here are the (still early and WIP) specials we're experimenting with:

Sword Special - 8 Projectiles, good for weakening, if not taking out enemies around you in a pinch.





Axe Special - Large crowd control stunning attack that stuns all enemies within its radius.





Claws Special - Flurry attack for fast and direct damage, good for bosses or harder single enemies.






The top right is a very W.I.P mini-map, basically just me fiddling with it, ignore that for now, more on that later! Smiley

Great looking art and the gameplay seems on point. I think some parallaxing front objects could liven up some of those scenes,  sort of frame them and reduce the repetitiveness of the tiles. But that's just a minor observation.

Wish you luck with the Kickstarter.

PS. Just watched the trailer and music is great as well. A little strange the Kickstarter isn't doing better at this point in time. Demo should help bring some more attention to it I guess.

Thanks for this! I was wondering when I would get to play/demo such a good looking game. I've been following your posts on twitter since before the title/name change...whenever that was! Again thanks, I'll try it out and come back with some thoughts about it.
