I really liked the game,  the ressurection mechanic is pretty neat and the combat also is very smooth, the game reminds me of old classic RPG's :)

Thank you for playing and for your feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the experience :)

Impressive achievement! The main mechanics of building an army of resurrected fallen enemies is fun. Very atmospheric presentation, too. The effects of the skills were sometimes a little unclear to me - like, for how long do I strenghten my minions? Needs balancing, too - at some point, the minions were doing all of the work, with me staying in the background, but then I got killed by a single fireball from somewhere.. But obviously these things are going to take more time :)

Very nice implementation of the Game Jam theme! Overall a fun experience. I only wished to had a bit more impact with my spells towards the end of the level. My minions did well on their own without any help.

Definitly quite impressive how much you got done during the Jam!

Thank you for playing and for your comment! Means a lot :)

I love RPGs and this game really reminded me how good games like this can be. Perfect for introducing people to the RPG genre and discovering a love for it. 

The music was super fitting and atmospheric and I also liked the explanations in the game itself where the use of skills was appropriate. 

Really excellent performance and I'll probably play it again and again now. 

Thank you again cartooni, happy you had a great experience!

Awesome! Very interesting to play! 

First you kill your enemies then these enemies kill your enemies)

Mana managment is interesting but i cant undestand how second skill works.

Thank you for your feedback! I'm happy you had an enjoyable experience :)

The second skill absorb an enemy's mana so you recharge mana faster.
