The free demo will be available from May 7th. This version includes all of the core mechanics of the full game, as well as an introduction to all of the themes of the final version. The goal of this demo is to give players an idea of what the full game could be, and to allow me to gauge the commercial viability of proceeding with development. Put simply, if enough people like the game, i'll continue making it. If not, i'll move on to the next idea.
Please note that testing is currently ongoing, and some bugs may occur for some players.
All music in the demo was specially composed by Alex Roe - a video game composer known for his music in the style of Dark Souls and Bloodborne.
