This game was made for a 24 hour game competition. It was completed in just under 24 hours by just me. The music was created by Eric Skiff.
Since its original release I have done quite a bit of updating to it just to make it more playable and fun. The current version of the game no longer reflects what it was when the original game jam game was released. Though it still has the same content.
It's an RPG/arcade game where you take control of a samurai apprentice attempting his final trial before becoming a full samurai.
