This is awesome and I'm glad I finally got to play it. Ever since I saw your spritework it's been one of my most anticipated /agdg/ games and I loved the in-progress trailer you posted. The sprites look full of character despite their simplicity and crudeness. The music is very nice as well. You almost can't tell its an RPG maker game.
It's really well-made and I only have a few nitpicks. I don't really like how the character just vanishes before the screen fades to black when entering a new zone. Also, when an enemy attacks Dude, the attack/damage animations appear to the left of him, rather than above him.
Best of luck with your Kickstarter. I can't wait to play the finished version.
