Great additions on this one, I think I said it before but I love the new sword swinging animation, it really makes the sword feel heavy. The item and skill system is really nice, but having everything look like swords is a little bit confusing. I assume those are placeholders, though.
I think blood should be a little darker, it looks to pink to me and blends too much with the reddish backgrounds, like the one at the tutorial.
I really like how much this grows on each Demo Day. Good job!
