In anther note, have not tried it yet, but the art looks great, so props to whoever did that, plan on trying it soon. :)

Ahh, okay, there's a closed alpha sort of thing currently going on, on steam, which is significantly improved from both itch.io and gamejolts versions.
Maybe shoot them a message if you're interested. :)
I'm slightly concerned it may just have been a misunderstanding, when someone else told them they need to activate their Steam key for Itch's DRM to work they responded "See the author's reply" you didn't seem to have replied anything related to that, so I wonder if they misunderstood what I said, which was "It's a joke, because the game is about piracy...", not referring to the message, but to my earlier message saying "Sounds right." when they mentioned the message, and somehow they mistook me for the author and mistook my message for the message itself being an intentional joke?
Could well be wrong, but the situation just seems off and I'd hate for this to have been a genuine innocent misunderstanding.
Quite like the games, the art style is what originally caught my attention.
Unrelated, you itch.io page says "I am a Japanese sudent"
It should say "I am a Japanese student" :)
Just trying to help.
Only briefly, I've enjoyed it so far, played just enough to try out the new hero, and I thought it was quite good, about to give endless mode as the new hero a try. :)
I really do like just how different the different characters feel to play as, I'd love to see even more to come.
With the codex, it would be cool to also have the final end state of the map saved with the stats, although that may be slighly hard. :)
"I am the fire of my forge
Copper is my body and Silver is my blood
I have created over a thousand blades
Unknown to death
Nor known to life
Have withstood pain to create many soldiers
Yet those hands will never hold anything
So, as I pray, Boundless Gear Forge."
I found a bug, If I change the resolution to 1920x1080 but do NOT enter fullscreen mode, the game will not load, it loads but you cannot see it (you can tell this because the sounds all continue, you can hear yourself attack, etc.)
If I then close the game and re-open it, the screen is fully white, and you cannot navigate to the options menu to fix the resolution, I'm fairly certain that like when you tried to load the game earlier, the menu is still there, just not displayed, deleting the options.ini at \AppData\Local\GotFL fixes this issue, but trying to set the resolution to 1920x1080 again will still cause the problem again.
Here is what the options.ini looks like when broken.
WindowsSDKDir="E:\Program Files\Windows Kits\8.0"
VisualStudioDir="E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0"
Hope this helps!
Certain parts of the game also quite remind me of Enigmata Stellar War.
It might be interesting to check it out.
Particularly the ancient cannons and other "drop only" buildings.
And the waves of enemies are similar too.
By the way, just some feedback that I imagine I would probably find interesting if I were the developer.
The inclusion of the golems, and being able to control them, was a major selling point for me, there's just something about harnessing ancient technology, particularly the kind of mystical kind that, at least to me, just feels good, plus they feel sort of, special.
It reminds me sort of an old-ish game called Spellforce, where you had rune warriors, and almost every one of them was human (in the first game I think they were), but later there were a few special units that were not, my favorite of which was the blades, which were these magical/mystical construct enemies that usually served as the elite units of your enemies.
Or in final fantasy tactics, where you have the normal character races etc, but there's a special character you can unlock through a quest called Construct 8 or Worker 8, "It is a robot from the days of Saint Ajora Glabados" So basically a robot that uses lost/ancient technology, similar to your golems.
I love that in games, unsure why, but the golems in this serve a similar function.
