Fantastic game mechanic! I hope you keep expanding on this game (with music, sound, checkpoints, and more levels) :)


I liked this concept a lot! I made it to the boss and killed him but got stuck and couldn't make it to the lady friend =( Bit of a bummer

Really neat!


Very interesting. I was pretty exhausted when doing this Let's Play, so I'm glad I was able to reach the end. The quick time camera effects worked out well.

Your game is part of my Let's Play video. Check it out!


Maaan this game was hard to get the qt events in time -but cool concept and really nice job actually making quicktime events matter gameplay wise! :D


This is actually really clever and I like the procedural animation and the stylized characters! Some sound FX would be neat with this. I guess one nitpick would be the color of the arrows which might not contrast well against some of the enemies that you are fighting. 


So great ! With more polish on sounds and visuals it would be so better. I was making battle sounds with my mouth while smashing the keys ahah. Maybe you should continue working on it ? :D


First off, the game looks really awesome. Love the art style. Second, man, I think this is one of the few games you'll ever catch me swearing at but then immediately try again. It's really well done, if rather challenging.


Great gameplay! Very satisfying to complete the color sequence!
