Man if you could add countering with a super satisfying clang, it would be that much more amazing, awesome demo though

very short buy stylish. I did not see more than the grass level but that was nice :)

This reminds me of an old flash game called “Straw Hat Samurai”. Very nice!

Thank you. just checked it out and it looked quite interesting!

I dont know if you already knew this but you will always get stuck when you walk down from spawn and walk a bit to the right and obviously the game is great. Also I thought when you lower your body you dodge.

Thank you for your playing and feedback. Yes, there are some issues with colliders now.  Nice catch on the little dodge mechanism there!

that name took me off guard but i love this game, would love to see an endless mode

lol, that's a cool suggestion.

thank you!

Really cool concept and visuals!

Very good, it was hard at first but I got the hang of it eventually.

thank you! May I know what was very difficult for you and how you got over it?

Just the movement, it's hard to turn around when you miss the hit.

nice gameplay, simple and clean,  hard to master it ;)

thank you!

This is a beautiful gam  and is fun to play, one thing I noticed is that pressing SPACE freezes the gam

❤❤❤

Very good game, it reminds me of another game where you can pick any objets you want for each scenes, I can't remember the game, maybye it was one of you're inspirations..

i allways wanted a game like this and i found it

The visuals are incredible and it has pretty good game feel so far!
I esp like slicing the bamboos and attempting to parry.
I'd love to see more levels and mechanics in this world :D 

thank you!!!

The style is so great and I'm really excited to see the rest of your environments. I wish the character turned a bit faster (this feels especially weird on keyboard) and I wish I had a slightly more prominent indicator of direction when charging a dash. I also wonder if run/dash should be different buttons... not sure. The dash feels so risky since it's really hard to gauge both direction and distance, but it's also the best *feeling* thing about the player. Your juice is so strong and would be really well complimented by a punchier feel on the player, more of that nice snappy movement like you have on the dash. Can't wait to see where you take the game!

hey, Diego, thank you for playing and for all the great feedback!

Happy to, and happy to play any WIP builds! Really digging it so far.

super cool

thank you!

Super juicy, I loved it! The only problem I found was that I was able to dash out of bounds, and then I couldn't get back in the level

thanks for your playing and feedback! There might be issues with some bounds of the current level, gonna fix it in the future.
