This game is pretty hard, has beautiful animations and graphice and terrible audio :D I couldn't pass through the second level, AI sometimes does weird stuff and peasants are often staying in one place or running around without sense. Generally I like it and I find it good piece of work.

I though the design and styling were really good! And the SFX worked well. The text I found a bit hard to read, but as soon as I saw the companion blindly walk forward I realised I had to protect them. The peasant mobs did seem a little unresponsive but it was cool to engage with them.  Perhaps an element of knock-back in the combat would give it more dynamism. Good effort!

Developer

thanks for the feedback. i added a small stun in each hit but a knockback would be nice too

Hi your game is awesome! I really enjoyed playing it. Things you might want to fix: enemies sometimes stand in their place and attack the air, and when you lose you can still move. Anyway it's really good for a jam! :)

im still chasing that bug, dunno why that happens tho. about the gamover screen, yea i can fix that one. thanks for the feedback.

The artwork and aesthetic are stellar, and the concept is very intriguing! I did find it rather difficult to go through more than 3 packs of enemies before dying, or having my lady friend die to the one straggler that the other two were blocking me from helping. It's definitely still fun and I enjoyed it nonetheless!

thanks for the feedback, yea true i still need to fix that up. maybe next week cause im still busy with btp gamejam. about the theme, its a literal definition of love is blind where everyone hates your wife cause of her profession and the things she did but you still love her and save her even if it costs you your life. you can push the witch away with your body so she wont get stuck cause of fear.about fighting more than 3 enemies you just gotta taunt them with your club and move around them to clump them up then hit them with your cleaving attacks. in the future ill add jump, tumble, and combo attacks.

High ranked and professional artwork combined with a nice game concept. Difficulty scale could be lowered a little bit. It is really hard not to get hit by the enemies while fighting.  Still makes a lot of fun to play this awesome game.

This game reminds me of Tekken arcade mode.

The music wasn't really the best I've heard, but I guess it's bearable (Not trying to say it in a rude manner). Art was pretty good, so props on that one!

And the sound effects were also pretty decent!

Overall it's a 7/10

Awesome game Very fond of the graphics & animations. Sound FX are very good as well! Background music was very subtle & low on volume - heard it almost by an accident :) Also I did not make it far - there are so many angry villagers on me or my witch wife. Sometimes when I moved a bit to side from angry villager I could hit him with my mighty club & he could not hit me with his poor fork! Not sure if intended - but this way i was able to almost make it alive out of that crazy good looking village. Very good game, loved playing it.

Developer (1 edit)

yes it was intended, the hitbox of the fork is long but slender and your club swings are wide to cleave through enemies. you are just positioned right so the other one wont hit you. havent focused much time on the bg music tho, i just made it literally in the last 30 mins before deadline so i lowered the volume so it will not be as distracting when playing. also theres a small stun each hit so you can kill without getting damaged on one on one but 2 or more they can land a hit on you. you gotta watch out tho if there are peasants hitting the witch. her health is not as much as yours. thanks for the feedback

I did not get to far in the game :), but it was fun to play. My best tactic was to avoid the angry people :). Nice graphics and some sound effects. Good jam entry!
