Damn, this is really good. I think this might be the most polished game in this game jam.
I really like the dark and broody graphics, really sets the mood and atmosphere. I especially like the 2.5D shadow effect you got there. Movements are ok, although you can't really control yourself mid-jump, making some precise jumps a little difficult. Music is great. The story/plot is really intriguing and teases the audience well.
Some complaints: I can't tell if I am being hit or I'm the one hitting, as the animation/particle effect is really hard to see (maybe I'm blind lol), a human "hurt sound effect" would do nicely. I can't exit out of "item drop" mode, meaning I have to drop something if I want to look at an item. Also, being able to look down would be nice, as I can't figure out if a ledge drop is safe or not (is that what the rope is for?)
But all in all, real fine work you got there.
