1) Please note this is only an ALPHA BUILD of the game and not entirely representative of the final product. That means there are bound to be several issues lurking... For example, I am aware the system for Slash getting "hurt" by the enemies needs work. The art, sound and other assets are not final.

If you do discover any bugs/glitches please email:

This HTML5 web version has also been "slimmed-down" to run smoothly on a variety of different machines and browsers.

2) What is presented here is a draft of a small dungeon. It includes hazards, crates, collectibles, a few enemy types, and a miniboss.
The rooms available are:
  • Menu >
  • Dungeon Incinerator room 1 >
  • Incinerator room 2 (Miniboss) >
  • Testing Room 1

3) The first music track is brought to you by Jonathan Fobbs of LATE WATCH.
