This was an interesting game!
I uploaded my gameplay to youtube if you're interested in watching!


The utter lack of sound was a bit dissapointing, but as a fellow dev with no sound skills i can understand. The game window was very tiny and in a weird aspect ratio, I assume this is related to do with the game being only mouse controlled. Was it designed for mobile?
That aside, the "crafting" system was pretty interesting. I liked how I was able to take various things I found and rotate them to create interesting setups. I'm not sure if it's possible to heal, but I ended up dying to a skeleton on my second incursion out. The minimalist 1-bit artstyle made the game more interesting to look at. I noticed a graphical bug that made the grass seem to be outlined by white?

Overall it was an interesting experience with innovative crafting, interesting art.

Loved it! The graphics in particular are super clean and effective :) I liked making all sorts of wacky soul equips

This was a cool game with such a fun concept! It would have been cool if you added a "flip" to the crafting besides rotation, but I still liked my "Glaring of Cats" (XP). My only nitpick is how I need to adjust my mouse's sensitivity if I want to accurately place things in the crafting menu. Its pretty fair and balanced overall, but I'm unsure of if there is a "recommended" level to get to before fighting the last boss. This is a fantastic game otherwise, great job!
