Love this charming puzzle game. Really neat how older maps had to be played differently to progress through the game.

great game. I was skeptical of repeating the early caves every time, but I quickly realize that the increased length completely recontextualizes everything! I found the last cavern tedious but overall great work!

This was a really good game and I wouldn't mind if the game was even longer. 

6:00  on steam

HOLY, this game is fantastic but sooooo tedious, I would 100% recommend 

This was an amazing game I beat it in less than 20 minutes, the visuals were amazing, the gameplay was sometimes difficult but very nice.

hello ! nice game


This game is very nice, the visuals, music, and gameplay is amazing, however, a cool addition would be a dagger or knife at the start to represent those that have daggers instead of swords!
