One of my favorites! And while not the most interesting gameplay, I found the idea itself very enjoyable. The game fits the theme very well, with you just being one of the many fighting in a series of ultimately pointless battles, even more so because you even get to choose what side to be on. There is no greater evil, epic quest or honor, just survival of your team.

Its the small details that I like the most, how the camera it smooth and got a nice zoom-in, the basic but funny walking and fighting animations, and lastly your weapon gets upgraded in increasingly odd ways. 

I have very little to add because it fits so well the category of a small-jam game and its theme. Its a good length just too sit down and play that does not overstay its welcome, so it does not require for example: more complex combat mechanics or unit types. Its very nicely presented and has a fitting style. 

One option could be too evolve it by adding more levels and mechanics, but that's at the risk of loosing the point why the game was made, and just transforming it to just another battle simulator.

Another thing that could be interesting would too add a "story"-like layer in-between the combat rounds, with the character getting increasingly aware of his situation. Its a bit clichΓ©, but I think it could add a bit more context/story.

Great game! Love to see move. Cheers.

Thanks for spending some time playing this game and writing this feedback!

Glad you like it and all the small details you noticed! :)

I'll surely keep working on this after the jam.

Well done!  This is the beginnings of a potentially neat  game.  I also love that you used the Godot Engine!  FYI, at one point my sword changed into a knight of the other color!

Thanks! Yeah haha, that's definitely not a bug, it's a feature! I didn't have the time to draw more fabulous swords so I decided to go that way instead, which I think is a bit funny. :P
