entry for the darktober2017 jam, theme of 'ghost story'

trying out the kha framework this time, i appreciate any error reports as usual.

progress is saved every time you go through a door so take a break when you feel like it

medals occasionally fail to unlock (request is sent but nothing is returned) but they will be saved with the rest of your data and try to unlock again the next time the game starts

default controls:
arrowkeys - movement
z - attack
x - jump
enter - pause
backspace - suicide

they can be remapped in options if you need to

if you're having trouble with a choppy framerate or controls sticking try closing any other open browser tabs. if that doesn't help, when paused you can change the scale of the canvas with the left and right inputs. if it works out i'll come up with a nicer looking solution in the future.

Even though there weren't many mechanics, the most was made out of them, and I couldn't have thought of a better way to make this game myself.

Absolutely love it... keep up the great work!

Not bad but the dying is to easy

"wandering shadow" is almost enough to make me to smash my computer and set the house on fire. i hate you for spiders

This game is freaking hard, but well worth all the trouble. Very challenging and very interesting level dynamics. After hours of playing, I thought about giving up and never playing this game ever again because I though completion was complete bullshit. But now that I've finally completed this ultimatum of a flash game, I have realized by full potential. Thank you so very much!
