Very well done! One of my favs from this jam. 

I really like the menu implementation, where you type the actual words to navigate through the options. 

The combat is great, but there is one bit that I found frustrating. The long final word that you write to execute an attack does not require you to hit space or enter to submit it. Multiple times, I would type the attack word and subconsciously hit enter right after (because the other parts of the game work like that), and this would cause me to fail the first word of the next round. It took me a while to get used to this, and even when consciously thinking about not doing it, I still slipped a few times.

Two possible solutions: 1) require space/enter to submit the attack word, or 2) ignore one space/enter input if it is typed right after the attack word is completed.

Anyhow, I had a lot of fun with this one.

Hey, thanks for playing and leaving feedback, I'm thrilled  you enjoyed it (especially the menu, I'm really proud I thought of that)! 

That part of the attack you mentioned made it into the game at the last second so I didn't do a ton of testing on it, but I'm planning on going back and taking another pass at the game as whole so I'll most definitely add that fix in when I do! 

Anyway, thanks again! :)

Super fun game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the games from this jam, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Thanks for playing, the next update is going to have difficulties and there will definitely be an easier Normal mode!

I've been looking forward to this one, and not in vain! Super cool, super fun.

A single suggestion: It would be super cool if, after you've typed out your series of words, hitting space inbetween, you could hit enter to kinda finish your sentence, even if it's just meaningless garbage. I image it feeling as if you were charging your punch through typing all these words and releasing it by pressing enter, finishing the sentence and throwing the punch at the same time. The thought kinda came as I kept typing and felt weird not ever pressing enter after hitting space so many times, seemingly writing the longest sentence in history. Just a suggestion!

Thanks for playing and for the suggestion! I was considering for a long while whether it should be space or enter or either, but the way you describe it actually makes a lot of sense! Just being at the end to finish out each sentence. I'm going to start messing around with it now and see how it feels!
