Congratz on the full release! :wub:

Are there any plans to include the OST as a DLC? Kinda like other games in the store. I know it's available on youtube but it would be nice to give an extra support to the game/composer.

I'm having trouble getting past the first door.

There's nothing wrong with the game. I just took a screenshot and have been trying to translate it since. It appears to be anglo saxon futhorc (mixed in with elder futhark) and appears to just be the alphabet. Here it is translated with all of the most common alphabets.

I'm gonna argue is more effective to have it included in the steam page, tbh. Not that I'm demanding you to do so. I'm just saying.

In other news, I've just beat the first episode and have a few things to point out. Btw, the boss fight was really good.
Spoiler:
Now, I gotta say that the game is great and solid. The first episode was super fun and finding secrets is satisfactory while not being too demanding, just how I like it. Congratz once again on the release! I'll keep playing the next episode after getting some work done. I haven't been this much looking forward to my next game session in a while, so that's something. :lol:

The big gargoyle die quickly of the Ring of Ice because he has a big hitbox and the ring of ice projectile is slow or something like that i remember. It could be much longer with the other weapons.
Good idea for the script, thanks for the other reports.

I haven't looked at the code but, yeah, you're probably describing the projectiles act as ripper. I think I killed one of them with just 3 sword swings but I'll keep testing with sword and other weapons to see how much damage it can tank. I just wanted to mention that I felt its HP was pretty low for the "tier" it seems intended.

Btw, I remember the Ice Ring was the nicest weapon in the first version of the demo. Now it's even better. I can confirm that it really shines against packed enemies. :thumb:

Yeah, it's not at all recherché. ;)

No, but congrats on your guys' release!

knight with shield looks spot on, when he die his falling shield gives hexen centaur vibe.
scythe weapon is cool, grenade is fine, but shotgun pistol? i thought ice ring is your shotgun.

It does big damage at close range and can 1-2hit kill much faster solo enemies than the Ring of Ice who is more for large horde with lower damage and it goes through the shield of the Undead Knight.
The pistol was supposed to throw big ball like a snipe (fast projectile) but it was pretty basic and the Fireball Staff did already this job (with less power) so we reworked it...
