The game is fun. It's a quick paced little bullet hell and the audio is great, but it's problems definitely need to be addressed.
Controls are an issue. In this type of setup, a single poorly placed button can make or break the controls. The shield button, "Q" is where we have this problem in this game. I recommend using the right mouse-click to shield instead of the Q. It's extremely cumbersome. Also, you need shield and dash gauges. Combat balance could also definitely use some tweaking. After about half an hour of play, I was absolutely unable to get past the first enemy. Finally, you should add a flash to the enemy so that the player knows if s/he's managing to hit him.
Also, it a bit too much setup in the beginning. A wall of text followed by a smaller wall of text is not the way to open a game like this, and the NPCs don't seem to have a point.
