Hey guys, so as some of you may know, for the past year I've been working on and off on a personal Project called Dark Light. It's a Metroidvania which is heavily inspired by the likes of Dark Souls and Hollow Knight that takes a lot of the key mechanics and concepts and throws them all together to make this. Now since Uni came around, I was unable to work on the project for about 8 months and have only just started to get back into it so I'm looking for Feedback about it's current state. As it says above, It's only in the early Alpha stages but I am still looking for some feedback outside of me just asking on the discord.

There are a lot of known issues and things I haven't even added yet so you'll have to bare with me but please report any bugs or glitches you find. Other than that, just let me know how you feel about the game as a whole ^-^
