Thanks for playing! Character selection is already planned, and you suggesting it just confirms it's a good idea, but I'm waiting until the gameplay loop is tighter before working on another character, though I already have 2 character ideas.
I agree things start out a bit too fast, but I'm hoping new players don't give up after dieing once or twice while learning. I'm still trying to find the right balance between hectic fast paced action and being able to strategize. Thanks for the feedback!
