*Content Update*

Hard Mode
We have implemented a Hard Mode that comes along with a World 1 environment re-skin.
In Hard Mode, the player can only take 5 damage (between 1 to 3 hits) and it's game over.
It is strongly recommended to familiarize yourselves with the controls using the standard mode.

---------
There will be other free content updates in the form of new worlds, weapons and modes (how quickly they are implemented is dependent on interest in the game).

Bug-fixed and optimization updates: Our current priority is bug fixes and weapon optimization - The sword attack gesture is rather restricted currently (only upward to downward slashes) and the hammer needs better targeting.

Planned Content Updates
ii. World 3 - Vote between the following:
a. 'Bosses' only levels - where each enemy has more HP and unique abilities
b. Different mechanics - player to battle in close combat (room-scale style) and hop between different platforms
iii. Multiplayer Versus Mode

We target to have World 3 up in a couple of months, depending on our progress on bug fixes.

Developer's Comments
The game may still contain several bugs at this point of time. We have priced the game with the consideration to increase prices in the future with more content updates, somewhat like an early access title / pre-order. All proceeds will go towards game content.
Early buyers get free content updates although if there isn't much interest in this genre, there's the risk of little future content.
We appreciate all feedback and support (in terms of comments or reviews)!
