Hi, this was really fun small demo! Although there is always room for improvements, (an one month does not really any game make) custom pixel assets and music really gave game nice retro feeling . You have certainly put much thought and soul into this! 

Despite some minor bugs I succeeded playing demo through and through, perhaps not using all the tools I was given (never quite used that monster pit after all), but fared okay regardless. Tutorial was also a nice touch, system was quite complex to get around, but held well together considering this being just a demo.

Those additional promised new features and further polish really makes me hope you can realize this game in it´s final, finished state! So good luck with the competition.

And for the plus-side,  game almost makes me feel guilty of all those hours of looting in Skyrim and other RPG:s.

Thank you for the broad well-rounded  feedback and testing the game out!


Great work Elias, its very impressive for just a month's work.

Good luck in the contest!

Hi Veteran Newb, thank you for taking a look of this!

This project gave me a lot of insight how to make rpg maker plugin to do completely different things that it is originally planned for. Whatever happens, I will be releasing this in some way or form. 

Thank you for checking this game out! Feel free to share any thoughts you have here in comments or at our discord group = http://bit.ly/eludiscord
