This game is lit! 

The Blacken Slash website lists this early access beginning March 22nd on itch. Was just wondering if a release is still coming soon?

Yes! I had to delay the release by 2-4 weeks to finish and improve some things. But it will be very soon, stay tuned :-)

Glad to see this out :D I enjoyed the demo earlier today.
