Great job! Definitely deserved the win!!!

As a personal preference, i for the life of me can not use WSDA controls at all. If there was a option to use arrow keys instead, be a 5/5 from me.

Awesome

This is a brilliant piece of work! The controls are tight, art is fun and gloomy, and the main mechanic is deviously smart as you manage your own threat and gain more souls through purposely seeding your own doom!

Amazing work!

One of the beast games on Newgrounds.
