We wish to thank all supporters again, with your help this was made possible. So stay safe, keep hacking goblins to bits and enjoy some video games!


Always nice with a bit of blooper reel, this time in the form of early dragon training footage. Hey, is the fire supposed to go there...?

This game is SO satisfying - so responsive and fun to play, plus a ton of nostalgia. Love the artwork, the retro feel, and the developers' sense of humor. Fun game to play solo, or add a friend and slash and hack through goblins and ogres together. Played through the demo and looking forward to MUCH more!
