Enjoyed the demo until I got lost, just a few thoughts:
1. Walking around a big empty map when you're backtracking after finding a normal key and nowhere to use it and there's nothing to kill and nobody to talk to but your sword hilt is kind of a bummer.
2. The character movement seems kinda ...jittery? I'm running a 144hz monitor, not sure if that's a factor but when they're at the edge of where the screen starts to scroll left, right, up or down, the sprite just kinda jitters in place. It's not smooth scrolling like I'd expect. A bit off-putting.
That said, seems like the final game could be fun, hoping combat gets more difficult down the line. Worried about length but so far it seems like something I'd play through and enjoy. Like the art style and music, combat and dialogue are tight!
