game constantly slows down, thought it was just slow paced with occasional running til i saw other gameplay footage. game plays at 50% speed for me, so uninstall

I never thought about the fact that this game had an end. I really enjoyed the game, I wish there was more. The only suggestion I could possibly have is to collapse the powerups bar so that they layer, instead of stretching across the screen. But overall, it is a fabulous game. It took me like 10 times to beat it

Great job!

9/10 the game is great but not perfect, I love the Nemisis-type enemy that follows you so please keep him in the main game. I would spend money on this once it comes to steam.

10/10 very fun game, the thing is tho...Dont you think the minigun is a bit absurd, because its as strong as the ending Rocket Launcher because it shredded through the levels SO fast, but it has great quality and smooth graphics 100% would play again and it has an awesome rougelike system

The Game was fun, cool, and a little bit scary thanks to the buff mouse. I had a blast playing the game, I freaking loved the music, the enemies, the guns and even the shop and it's items. I can't wait to play whatever you guys have make next. ps I made a lets play on the game I hope yall enjoy :). 

AMAZING!!!!! any chance for gamepad support ?  

game play reminds me of soul knight, great game btw..

this feels a lot like enter the gungeon... i love it! is a console port being thought about?

game devs real talk this isn't a short enough game to not include a checkpoint system please devs im only asking for some floor to floor check points

That's what I said its extremely difficult and there is some random times I don't understand how I die and I feel like I'm punished for it when I can't understand and fix those mistakes

(+1)

its a rougelike there are no checkpoints

yea rip meh ;-; these games will bring me to sheer anarchy

*

Is there any way to kill that buff monkey thing or do I have to run from it?

(+1)

running is the only option,I've tried killing him,it doesn't work 

(-1)

I DIED AND IT RESTARTED ME AND I WAS AT THE END MAKE A SAVING SYSTEM FOR THE LEVELS REEEEEEEEEee

its like enter the gungeon, you need to restart when you die

idc its too long of a game

(+1)

I played this game and really enjoyed it. I made a short video of my playthrough and would love for anyone to check it out. Thank you for the game. I look forward to the next updates!

ok so i wont tell how but.......... there is an infinte mony glitch you can do on the first floor

if i provide you with my email could you tell me how its done

I will give up my email or discord to know how

same

cant wait for the full game!

I wish I could buy the supporter bundle but I'm poor  :(

nice game

Will i get copyrighted playing this game?

nope!

This is a really great game

feels great, pretty poggers game :) good luck with development

it's a good game

amazing game






please add sound settings

(+2)

Its free dead estate.

please tell me that the reason that the rat poison item lowers chunk's health is a reference to the rat cube in jojo's bizarre adventure.

never mind

I have a feeling I will develop an unhealthy addiction to this game. and as such i'm going to wish list it immediately.

I have done nothing but play this game for the past hour and a half

CARIO MUITO BOM

I suck at this game :D

I found a glitch(?)

Context: I got the machine gun through anvil destroying a bowling ball, and I also had ammo recycler (not sure what it does), but then for some reason the machine gun starting gaining ammo when shot, and ammo packs made it lose ammo.

And sorry for the bad quality

so when you collect the soap item it makes it impossible to go to the next floor because you cant stand still

Brillaint, fantastic job! I had a lot of fun.

Can you please make the trench coat guy appear at a later time because when I get to floor two I just never have enough time to find the key and boss and he just kills me 

(-1)

Is Jeff meant to be Luigi

Hello there. I tried this game on a video and usually I am not a big fan of these games. But I had quite a bit of fun. Not bad honestly. Only complain I have is, is it normal when you die that well... the game dies? Cause it literally crashed. xD
Anyway, if people are curious here is my video.

got this error message

also. How do I get the Steam Demo to full screen?

(-1)

EXPLOIT! When fighting the crazy guy with one arm, if you leave the room right as you defeat him and come back in, he will keep spitting out money as if he keeps dying. I had an item that spawned ghosts and it kept creating ghosts too.

This is one o-of those ga-games that you always come back too-oo.

(-1)

yeah but for some reason i have a BIG red dot on my screan 

(+1)

Really fun! Beat the demo on Steam and had to check out the OST and  concept art.

Can't wait for the full release!

We are excited to discuss Dead Estate tonight @ 7 PM EST on Indie Game Club! It's like a book club, but for indie games!
