Hey Golen,

Great job on your awesome game, we just reviewed your game alongside other games from this year's GMTK, and we'd love to hear your thoughts on it! Here's a link to the video:

It's actually quite addictive.  Sat here for over an hour playing it XD

murder but it's GOOD and FUN and COLORFUL

Here's the Highlight of the interview, thanks again for coming on to answer my questions;

it's really fun, but i wish there was some sort of upgrades or something, like more hp or different/better dice. something like d4 that attacks 3x3 square would probably be interesting, or maybe a die that attacks in x pattern? overall i can't wait to see the next update

Really neat game! Like the overall visuals and music. I think a few additional animations would be really nice though. Like a different death animation vs just the getting hit one being reused, and maybe a death image for the gameover screen. Also a smug/happy face whenever the fire kill someone or multiple at once, and a temporary "worried" face when attackers are close/attacking him.

This was such an innovative and fun game. Great job!

After the update (storage slot), the game is now even easier and longer. My new score after just one (lengthy) try: 22955

(+1)

Oh my god, I'm so sorry you had to spend hours playing it, haha. It did make the game a lot easier (and now there's also a check to prevent dice sums less than 6). Will kick up the difficulty in the next patch!

oh my god HOW??? Dude, I got 1700 WITH the storage mechanic! >w<

Awesome. I love that you play as the hot dragon.

The presentation and easy to understand but fun mechanics of this game are just AMAZING!

I love this game.

damn this is so cool tho 

If you store a die and place it before the troops move, it will block them

Whoops. Thanks for the find!

Damnit I could swear I’ve seen that handsome dragon before. Awesome art! <3

GG on the win! Love the game concept.

THOSE ARE MY FRIENDS THERE

I KNOW THEM

I LOVE THEM

THEY DID SUCH A WONDERFUL JOB AND I COULDN'T BE MORE PROUD AAAAAA <3

Really engaging and fun game. Beautiful art and especially more than you would expect to see in a 48 hour game jam. High score: 3425.

Very cool and addictive game! 

But that would be even better if luck was somehow less important, and if it was faster to reach a higher level of difficulty.

Stil proud of my high score 5400 :)

Quite unique gameplay. Really enjoyed it. Try to add some replay value (high score, leveling your dices, …). Also, I felt that the pace of the game was too slow. Short rounds with more action. You are really onto something!

(+1)

agreed.

My score was 2585. I was worried that the game may go on forever, but one of the big knights snuck up to me! Cool game :)

This is such a good game. Would love to see it expande.

hey, nice design and a good easy gameplay but after 45 minutes destroying the andvernturers it all seems too easy to me :D


Oooh, this is really cool!

will there be a download available? i want to play it offline. 

(+3)

Yes, we're able to export the game to Windows and Linux. Uploads are locked during GMTK so check in next week for updates!

very nice! must nice being part of a team...;( merp

i love it so much

I keep coming back to this game! Very well made!

(+2)

This game is a lot of fun.  It's currently basic but even then I could spend another few hours playing it after my first run.  I'd love to see a full version with a lot more depth

really hot dragon

Awesome game!

I've got a score of 2545 and I've gotten bored. It feels like at some point the level of enemies plateau'd, and it stopped being a challenge. The game is great otherwise, though.

simply addicting and wonderfully made! My compliments to all of the developer for the smoothness of the mechanics and to the artist for all the dice and enemies sprites and, of course, the beautiful and majestic dragon. Good job guys! :)

This was a really well done game!
Concept, Art, Animations and Gameplay are all really smooth and it's incredible you managed to do this much in 48 hours

Incredible! This game looks and feels incredible! The concept is excellent and was executed on very well. Very stylish as well!

This is an awesome game, the only issue is that the adventurers that didn't move last turn aren't getting damaged, it's probably because you still moved them, and only stopped the actual objects. Still a great game

Awesome

This is awesome! I love how you're not playing as the heroes, but the fire-breathing dragon. Very fun, very easy to pick up, very cool. Good job.

So much potential here! I hope you work this into a full game.
