    Not sure if serious but I've already had 3 hour long english videos of the game on my channel. And I'm not sure if I want to showcase more as it's my own game so it's stupid to be revealing all its secrets personally. It's not my place, I think.

    Gave the demo a whirl and it's quite interesting. I managed to get 2 vampires which was pretty lucky, and vampire seems like a great backliner with her ranged magic attack. The first time demolition guy was scary but I figured out that you need to get him pushed to the front asap so he starts his suicide attack, then use zombie's special to push him into the back. Biggest annoyance was guardsman and his attack on move stance, really messes with skeleton and death knight.

    The strategic resource management was ok, I guess? Save resources up so you can upgrade them, except the bonus is random, so it's a crapshoot. Is there really a point to having higher level undead if most of the bonuses don't apply?

    Well, vampires aren't that lucky once you get a hold of them, there's pretty much a dedicated strategy where you dump your mana into 3 of them (they're easy to farm with the correct party) and then you just buff them with the fast Blackest Lodge.

    Stance can be broken by moving the guardsman. And knight grows up some armor so he can absorb that.

    Management system right now is pretty much a dummy. I've got another set of enchantments designed that'll be more intricate and combolicious. And the Alchemy tree allows you a bit of manipulation & adaptation.

    It's not, unfortunately. If it was 100% mine project the the soundtrack would've been fucking black metal. Of Summoning variety, though.

    Hey, didn't even notice this.

    Let's go for a spin, then.

    Thanks!


    EDIT: Well, it's a good timewaster. I enjoy the flipped out Sanity mechanic and the graphics in action do not bother me as much as I thought.

    Time to waste more time and see what makes this thick.

    Awesome demo, love this game's aesthetic, presentation and sense of humour (who did the voice acting on the trailer? Fantastic work). Combat also feels less "gamey" than Darkest Dungeon and thematically the mechanics mesh very well. Enemy retreat mechanic is cool too.

    Looking forward to this, alpha seems in a very healthy state.

    Demo is very nice, if a bit bare, ehehe, bones.
    Hopefully, it will not be as grindy as DD.

    Thank you! There is no grind in our game at all - every new fight is the new challenge, and they all are different.
