Hopefully, you will read this.
First of all, to use the Steam Soul Thief forums, one must be on Steam. So that bars those who don’t have/use it from giving feedback. So I REALLY hope you will read this despite it not being from a Steam user.
So. The game. I am finally playing it.
The new story is really intriguing me. And the gameplay is much smoother than before. I do have a bunch of complaints/criticism to give, which I hope will help.
The first is obvious and kind of a given. I really enjoyed the intro and the rewriten premise. It does leave me hoping that unlike the first game, you will not skim on the ending. If you need help, I’ll be glad to give some suggestions/ideas. I also wonder if there’s plans for little events in-between stages.
The other points are gameplay-related. The first is Raga’s tail whip attack. Namely, the fact that when moving, it causes momentum and lock your controls. I do not know if this is intended but this makes combat as Raga extremely awkward and is really something I wish wouldn’t happen.
The second is that the current end boss, while interesting in theory, suffer from difficulty imbalances. Is it because there will be multiple forms or different possible end bosses varying on the path/player actions through the game? As it stand, the game’s climax is unfortunately a bit anticlimatic (which is too bad given Death in the first game was an interesting end boss).
So far though, the game is really progressing nicely.
Hope you found this interesting and thank you for reading it.
