Whoa... The atmosphere and graphic style hints me through the screenshots: It would be the game in my "must play" list!
I'm looking forward to hear any further information from yours!

Oooo colorful  :D  But for the golden knife it should look more golden.

X Thanks, thou it's not golden dagger no more as that would be poor choice for a weapon (also could not think of a reason why gold would work on monsters better, thou this it not a logical game).
It's enchanted dagger, still does the same thing but is faster and has nice effect.

Also made the menu look more like the once in metroidvanias maybe ill even allow you guys to chance the color of the back from options, like in final fantasy games =D

Gold like Silver is a mystical metal. Though it is not treated as such in lore. In spirituality Silver represents the Father God while Gold represents the Mother God. Gold can become a much stronger metal if it is combined with another element to give it strength.

And a happy holidays to you too Wanhus  :D

PS Kida figured that you'd use the thorn whip sprite from PoR. It fits remarkably well.

Holidays are over so here is the new HUD for the game. It's similar to the one in circle of the moon.

My first attempt at recording my game and turning it into a gif. It's a bit buggy and fps is low but i hope it shares some light how this game works. Also sorry no death animations for 90% of the enemies yet.

ProjectDread don't worry they don't kill you. You can splash in them as much as you want.
You can check all changes in my first post =)
