I've been busy fixing issues and making a few changes based on your feedback. I've uploaded a new video that demonstrates improvements to blocking and attacking, general animations, knockback animations as well a better rising tide effect. It's not exactly where I want it but it's a step in the right direction. I'll continue to work away at it until I have something that's awesome!
My intention over the next few weeks is to focus on a build where people can start playing it. I'll be looking for feedback on the weapons and controls. The current build is playable but my intention is to have a very polished build for you to try out.
