There is an alpha available on the website but I need to update it with the latest version.
 
I'm trying to find ways to promote the game online as well as searching for a sound designer to create the game music.
If you have any advices, let me know !

Thanks for your return.

I didn't think about a run button, it's true it could had  some possibilities to the game, I'll think about it (the problem being that all buttons are already used on a gamepad, might need some arrangements)

 

I forgot to ask about the biggest english forums for indies to present their project. Since I mostly promoted on french forums, I don't have much information about the english indie community.

if you'd be so kind as to give me some tips about it, that would be really helpful !

 

Thanks again !

I'm currently looking for beta tester to try the game and point out any bug encountered.
Besides this, there are also answers I would need :
  • How long did you need to finish this version (when reaching the 2 village) ?
  • How about the difficulty ? Is it too hard or too easy ?
  • What do you think of the current boss ?
  • Who's your favorite hero so far and why ?
If some people would be so kind as to answer those, it would help me greatly to improve the game.
Important notice : I know stages lack a lot in content and decor, they will be added later on. Bosses design will also be reworked later on.

I'm currently working on the next champion, the summoner as well as its own quest.

More information later in the week !
