Oh man, here it is! It's been a week and I feel like I've already done so much! In today's pre-alpha (not pre-pre, this time!), I present some temporary/potential environment graphics, 3 new enemies, and enemy and player knockback! I'm considering upping the graphics quality a bit more, but only if I can find someone to draw for me... Let me know!

Anyway, here are the release screenshots for

Here's the text from the game info screen:
One week later and I feel like I've come so far! I've fixed the majority of the platform bugs, added 3 new enemies with minimal A.I., some nicer-to-look-at test graphics, enemy and player knockback (which is still a bit buggy), and probably some baddie-busting fireworks. I'm still having some trouble with the climbing/hanging movement animation, but that's not really that important at the moment. No Afterlife yet--heck, no HP yet, but that'll be the next thing I focus on for the release, I think. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the little updates I've made since last week! If you have any suggestions or ideas, go ahead and email me at, but don't send me spam or else I will haunt you in your darkest hour. O_O
