    I'm sorry to say but this is far from an impressive title.
    The Controls are terrible and unintuitive.
    The character animations rigid and unpleasant
    The textures are just ok at best
    I haven't played ina while but could make a list.

    TLDR it's honestly not fun to play unless you enjoy Controls that are painful just so you can brag you mastered them. The trailer makes it seem great but it's so far from it.

    I think the devs had a fantastic idea with this game, and it could've been great. It feels unpolished, unfinished, and rather messy.

    If you wish to support the game for future updates and to just support a Linux developer that is fine but don't expect something that feels finished.
    I don't mean to just seem like I'm bashing these guys, I think this could eventually be good, just not right now in my opinion.

    Reviews don't seem to agree with my sentiments, which is fine. I guess i just have a different idea of good controls, etc.

    I'd personally give ita 6/10, not deserving of less than 5, but not in the 8-10/10 score range.

          Guess they got distracted by the "So many cool looking swords!! ZOMG"

            this game takes on the sword fighting of the star wars games, and like any games that leans on the competitive side, it prioritizes balance over animations smoothing and characther depth over easy controls, that's my 2c
