So Bug testing has paid off. There was a game breaking bug that we need to make sure we have completely ironed out before launch. So to play it safe we are going to push the date back to the 10th of June. 

This bug could actually stop progression through the game and it may have occurred when we were removing objects to stop the game development program from crashing (event trigger will go blank when you delete an object but the event contents remain meaning they constantly trigger for no reason - this actually happened in several spots but the rest were minor).

So now we have to go through the code very carefully to make sure we've killed it properly! I think it was only in a few spots but you never know. The game has grown so big in size we may have cut and paste something somewhere and forgot about it. There were a few other minor bugs to squish but we've gotten most of them already. 

And while we're in there bug squishing, we've decided to spruce up Thurstan's Sword attack that you gain after stage 12 (No more daggers and punching past here). Originally it was kind of boring, just a forward slash for normal attack and then for heavy attack just a downward slash. Now there are combos, better animation, and a lot of blood!!!








 
Sorry again for the delay, we are working hard to deliver a great experience to you the first time around!

Do you have enough funding for a Wii U version, or why did you add it to the list of target platforms?

We were approved by Nintendo for development on Wii U just recently! We will be releasing the game on Wii U.

Awesome, reminds me NES past yeasr of glory.
Ideas like surfing moutain down on monster backs is great :)

On two last pictures, the boss or background seems to have been made in photoshop, it looks no more retro pixel and the mix with character retro pixel look is now strange.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks! Funny you said GnG, I've just added a nod to the puking ogre guys! My pukers are nuns in the church stage though and they can puke towards you, not just down! Thanks for the kind comments!

For some reason it reminds me a lot of Legendary Axe from the PC Engine TurboGrafx 16. Nice work guys real nice pro feel to the design.

Thanks! When I was a kid I always thought Legendary Axe was too much like an Nintendo game (aside of bigger graphics). But it's one my favorite TG16 games now! Thank you for the kind words!!
