Everything in this game was made from scratch in 1 week during the Blackthornprod Game Jam #3.

Fitting the Blackthornprod Game Jam Theme: Choose to have less lives to make your magic more powerful, or you can choose to have lesser magic powers for more health.

The curse must be broken. In order to do so, you must complete the trials of the abyss. Will you lose yourself in the pursuit of power or will you overcome with what little magic you have left?


Complete waves of combat and choose between lives and the size of your magical attacks. Giving up life will greatly increase the size of your attacks and give you a better chance of hitting your enemies. High risk, high reward, you decide your path.

why are all your games so short??

Quite pleasant and fairly short! Not bad for a game jam game!

A really cool little game!

Feel free to check my own entry for the jam <3 

rly hard and nice!

I think that the only promblem is that it is significantly better to sacrifice at least twice. If there were different endings and it gave a reason to not sacrifice that would be great

Well Made Game, Very Hard. The Enemies and Mechanic was interesting. I found myself buying a full-sized weapon from the start

how? you can only get one at a time!

good game if you had more waves could be better ;) was fun

Great game, just played it, I especially liked the music and art style, the only bit of criticism is that, when you get the option to give up lives for more power is that, if you do, there is no way to replenish your health, overall, a great experience.   

This is a very cool game! if there were heart pick ups that would make the game even better! 

This is a really well made game but its also really hard

The music is good and the game and level are simple but bug-free. I wish there are more levels and more types of monsters, it is a quite short experience :) but I like it! (But I have to say when the wolf dash, it looks like a cockroach lol)
