This took a left turn for sure. My brain went through this: "oh it's gonna be a story-based mini JRPG alright!" then *mild disappointment* "oh it's a wave-based brawler" then "what the hell I died and am now talking to a spear?!
I like the characters, pixel art, and story bits. I wasn't able to get too far, went up to the evil boss and I think tried to possess him but the game ended because I didn't know his name. When it restarted the ghost was already there in the scene where the knight warns the king. So it's a tad janky, but I really enjoyed it and think you could span a bigger game out of this!
