    I managed to pass when I got group with two heals and one with Cleave. The take on theme was interesting, but I think there could have been even more interesting take on with virus, as is virus living being, if not, is it dead? The music was good but it started repeat itself and you noticed the fading, you could try blend starting and ending together. It was nice system you managed to pull off.

    Loved it! Died on the last level once, then I did a few run where I "choose" a team I liked, and I won with a group of 1 of each race (but the robot died RIP).

    I would have liked a longer music loop, and some kind of keyboard shortcuts for attacks, heal, etc. since it's a little annoying to go back and forth for targeting. Overall it was good, and the idea of taking over different teams was really cool!

      Hi thanks for playing.

      Keyboard shortcuts would be nice, thats a good point. I did have a bit of trouble getting the sound I was looking for with the music.

    I like this game a lot! The choice making system and turn based combat are well made. The main complaint I have with the game is the balance. Not being able to heal in between battles makes it pretty hard to get to the end. While the host transfer mechanic was interesting, it was a bit disheartening to have to start all over each time, and usually with less than full HP. I think if you gave the players a bit more HP or healing powers the game would be even better!

    Overall, I think you did a good job on this game!

      Thanks for playing.

      Yeah the balance definitely needs some work, I've had super easy runs and very difficult runs. Your relics do carry over and are fairly strong but grinding deaths for relics isn't particularly interesting.

      Cheers
