Development log

I loved this. Very addictive and fun. Needs a bit of tweaking with the random spawns as on one run I was really overwhelmed with ranged enemies early on in the run (or it's just that that I need to git gud.) Other than that, very nicely put together! Loved the art, the music, and the gameplay feels really nice.

It's so much fun!!! Please make an update for this game! Make more viking games!

I've always wanted to create a simple pixel viking game, but now I don't need to create it anymore because it's here already!
