I would suggest: Don't use Oden as opponent. That is so wrong in more than one way. He is the god of wisdom (Tyr is the god or war), he should be on our side, and there are plenty of enemies in the mythology (giants and epic monsters).

Man, you are right. It would be so much cooler to summon Oden to fight with you than to fight against him. Thanks for the feedback!

This is true.
Why didn't I think of this?

I am glad if my ideas can be useful!

Follow-up ideas: Tyr, Tor and Heimdal could be possible fighters to fight with you. Oden would be perfect as advisor, to give hints about what to buy etc.

I can't really describe why I want to keep playing this game, since the battles seem far too easy to win, yet I just keep on playing it. I think mostly to see what other kind of bosses or countries may appear. I've got all the items and seem to be able to stop playing now... but I'm still wondering, "is there more to see?"

Great job Smile

Yeeeah... they really want a PC build... I wish Cassandra had given me a heads up before posting the article. I'd have been happy to give her a PC version.

Don't worry about comments like those, I think it's just typical trolling.

(Nice job getting the press though!)

Yeah, ignore the comments. It's much more important that you got serious press with this project. Great job!

Stupid twits. They still live in the delusion that nobody plays games on the Mac (the Humble Bundle stats clearly show the opposite) and shouldn't be so negative. Humbly asking for a port would be more like it.

Congrats! I saw that. Big traffic bump on the site. Smile

Now if only I could understand why they didn't post about the contest in any other way despite all of my effort to get them to do so... Sad

I just realized while reading your postmortem...I've met two of you guys! I was part of the staff at the Rosetta Stone Game Jam when you were there in 2010. If you remember this guy, that was me:
