UPDATE: 29th February 2018

Just finished a polished and playable version through Chapter 1.
I know a lot of people do the aesthetics last for a game, but I like to work on it as I go to get a better vision of the finished products.
I am hoping to make a pre-alpha demo out of the content i currently have, and hopefully get some constructive criticism  on it!

    • New buildings to enter with interior

UPDATE 9th APRIL 2018

Finally gotten around to make a small teaser for what the game looks like!
Still working on the upcoming chapters, and i maaay make a demo of the first chapter in the near future as well!


UPDATE 10th APRIL 2018

I've drawn a couple of new sketches of enemy designs. I got pixel art with death animation for two of these. I was thinking about making picture 2 (top-right) as my second boss fight, but I've decided on a new (upcoming) design wich will fit better. Number 3 (down-left) has been a work-in-progress ever since the project started and will be appearing in chapter 3. I still got some work to do before publishing a pre-alpha demo, but it is coming along pretty well. You may say; even if I don't have a proper deadline or schedule yet, I'd argue that it I'm "schedule" ^_^.
