uhhh ok....

Love it, thank you for this great game.

Can't wait for the full version of steam.

This game feels so polished, and I loved it!

This was a fun ride! :D

Got a bug where one of the moth enemy in the second level got stuck in the wall along with me stuck in the room cause i can't kill it

same, that happened to me too

This is fun. I think it's missing something: A clock. The game makes me think of the Megadrive's SplatterHouse, without the sense of urgency. As it is right now I can take my time and explore each levels... a clock (with scary preset cutscenes?, like Splatterhouse's) would stop that, force the player forward.

game broke on chrome lmao

hope to see the game on steam soon. I loved the art and style

It'll be out on October 19th!

Hello , what is the name of the soundtrack in the menu ?

Defeated the complete first level, then *WHOOSH* Chunks or whatever enters. Spamming the jump button and throwing thirty some bowling balls at him did nothing, annihilated...

i jumped ontop of shop lady so im having to spam exit frame by frame

Same, I was using HTML5 version, I don麓t know if this only happends using this version. I tried Steam demo and I didn麓t experiment this error.

Just found out that you can, in fact, kill Chunks (the buff mouse thingy that shows up if you take too long) but it takes a little while cause of his massive HP. He does leave a pretty decent cash drop behind though. If you do kill him, he'll only show up again the next floor.

Just take an empty room, let him show up, and then run around while shooting him.

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

I got the minigun and it sucked, a lot 1200 shots to kill chunks which is 80% of its total ammo (i think) so maybe it was your item loadout or something.

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?

(1 edit) (+1)(-1)

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!
