Hello Wanhus!! It's glad to know you're still alive!
OK long phrase cut short and let me share some actual thoughts and opinions.
-The damage of enemies in the very first woods I think it could be decreased by one of two.
-The post-hit invincibility I think it could be exntended by 3-5 frames more.
-The load data function is bugged and unfinished? I can't load my save file saved at the very first church, thus lost all my progress for a good chunck of minutes. For this reason the game effectively prevents me from making further adventure progress and checking further locations.

Anyway keep healthy and stay safe! Best luck to you guys!!!

Tested saving on 5 machines with no problem.
I did transfer the game to new engine without testing so its possible.
(The engine change atleast affected in changing screen size mid game that sometimes crashes it)

Did you save correctly?
Saving happens by using the statues like in other castlevania games.
Talking to priest does not save the game.

When it comes to damage and inv. frames I need to think about it.

Also several areas are unfinished and have weird stuff in them.
Im also reworking several areas. Like Dungeon (manor) 2, I hate it its a mess.

Might also add tutorial or a quick quide menu.

Indeed I was saving at the save point rather than talking to the priest. At load menu there's even information about saved location. Yet the saved game cannot be loaded, when it loads the game crashes.
