Archvale reviews and comments

Just started playing, and it draws me in hard.

Exceptionally well made Zelda meets twinstick/WADS+mouse RPG shooter.

Progression is fun, it's reasonably challenging with options to grind more to upgrade gear. Lots of other progression systems too, like skill challenges and permanent stat boosts through exploring the world.

There is some humor in the story, the artstyle is nice.

Humble advice: don't try hard in your first playthrough.

Also: if you play on keyboard/mouse, just bind dash to right mouse button rather than left shift. I find this a thousand times more comfortable to complete the skill challenges, and also give the other something useful to do.

I expect this to be a masterpiece.
