I really enjoyed the demo. It has a nice Kirby-feeling and - at the moment - has the right difficulty and already some nice variety of enemies :) The first boss fight is already interesting :) Can't wait to see more!

I'm so glad you liked it! Thanks for the feedback, hoping to crank up the variety even more soon!

I'm really digging the music here. Did you compose it yourself? It's excellent.

Thanks, I'm so glad to hear that! Yeah I've done it all myself. The next demo will have another song for the miniboss.

I'm still trying to learn how to create good sounds and mix, I'm pretty terrible at it right now
