I've been following the development of Swords & Shadows for a little while and I'm really happy to now be able to play the pre-alpha. I had a ton of fun playing this, I think that for a small demo this turned out really well. I haven't encountered any weird bugs either which is a good sign. The combat was fun and engaging, the camera controls very well, the procedural generation did a great job, generation quite different caves each time. Obviously this is lacking content but for now I think the heart of the game is great and 8-bit Ape really created asolid foundation. I love the low poly style and I would see this becaming a bigger and sucsesful game, with more enemies, attack paterns, different attacks (maybe more weapons, adding a sort of dark souls feels to it). I'm not 100% sure what 8-bit Ape is expecting to do with this project but I'm really looking forward to it.

You can see a bit of my gameplay down below, a tully great game :)


Thank you so much for playing the demo and writing this review! I'm really glad you enjoyed it. We're just about to start on the next phase of development which will introduce a few new attack moves, health pickups and a boss battle. The boss will definitely use attack patterns (think Hyper Light Drifter). Once complete we'll upload here again!

That sounds like a really good next step, can't wait to see it ! :)
