That makes sense
No, I was saying instead of removing it in the first place, he could of tried to add cool uses for it.

Honestly I originally preferred the former title, but I'm really starting to warm up to the new title.

I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want a game I've made have a name that's reminiscent of a child's book. Especially when it has nothing to do one, such as with "Bless You, Rip" here.

Not trying to imply I have anything to do with the production of the game, by the way. Just saying if I were to make one.

Because it sounds childish, incredibly generic, and gives the exact wrong impression of the game? I thought that was a great reason.

Could've
Might've
Didn't

And probably won't because he's not about to redesign aspects of his game just to better suit a single mechanic to make it relevant again
It's just simpler for him and the player to not have it at all
Why overcomplicate a combat system
In a game that isn't mostly centered around combat

Bless you, Rip.

Blip.

Hue.

I believe another valid reason to remove blocking is to encourage careful planning and strategizing your attacks, rather than running in headfirst like Rambo, blocking and negating all damage, and just spamming the swing button over and over. If you asks me, that's boring. Blocking would also kind of ruin the purpose of health extensions (the heart flowers), because an experienced player can train himself to avoid any damage taken by using the block function, and therefore have no need for any health extensions. Health extensions make you stronger, but why bother having them if you can already block incoming damage in the first place? If the block feature must be added for some reason, it should be as an upgrade; as a reward for your perseverance and strategic combat earlier in the game. It would totally work alongside the heart extensions, because both are motifs of growing stronger. Since Gir had already cut out blocking however, it's a bit of a stretch now.

(This opinion is entirely based off of what I've seen in Aar's play through, I'll download the demo at some point to play for myself).

Rip the Unlucky Rabbit sounds like the oppisite of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. I really think the title should be whatever Gir wants it to be.

Nothing against you personally. It was liammillay who took the example name too seriously and ran with it.

We're going to work on the game, and then we'll occasionally post updates on our development progress :mahin:

It's not planned to be all that spoopy of a game though, no jumpscares or anything.

This probably sounds very trivial but I have to say I really really love the light purple colour scheme here. Looks very beautiful and surreal. Please keep up the good work, and good luck with it!

Is this going to be a FreeWare game or a full priced game when it's finished?

Thanks! I'm pretty fond on how it turned out! GIR did a really good job with those mirrors

Probably not freeware! That was the original plan 2 years ago but the scale of the project has expanded since

I really doubt we'll implement any DRM. Most indie games are going the DRM-free route these days.
