Trapped in a dungeon without a weapon, you'll have to fight back with pressurized streams of your own blood. Blast baddies in this frantic action platformer, but don't forget to recharge before you bleed out. Explore the Metroidvania map, collecting keys and new abilities in search of an exit.
This release is a demo featuring the game's first area, with a full version planned for 2021. However, this demo is not lacking in content, with an estimated play time of over an hour. This demo features a full Metroidvania map to explore, 2 unlockable abilities, and 12 hidden upgrades. The most recent update also added the "Arena Rush" mode for those seeking a true challenge.

Some players are reporting issues with the save system not working. I haven't been able to reproduce this issue on my end, so I can't be sure what's causing it. If you run into any issues with saving/loading, feel free to message me with as much detail as you can about what happened so I can try to fix it.
