Savage is equal parts inspired by the Conan stories by Robert E. Howard, my fascination with Zelda II (yes, yes, I know - the black sheep of the Zelda family), other games of its ilk (like Gargoyle's Quest) and a healthy dose of general barbarian fetishism.

The final product will (hopefully) include a varied, somewhat open world to explore, an interesting little tale filled with machismo, magic and muscles, day/night cycle, overworld hunting/tracking, lots of action/platforming, fun melee system and some mild RPG elements (item use, leveling up, gear, crafting and the like).

I hope everyone's having an excellent holiday season so far! My gift to you: .GIFs!

New dungeon and stone tilesets! (With some older parallax background art - I'll get to updating those)
NEW DUNGEON AND STONE TILESETS! (WITH SOME OLDER PARALLAX BACKGROUND ART - I'LL GET TO UPDATING THOSE)

Raptor Throwing!
RAPTOR THROWING!

New snowy/rocky/mountainous tilesets and area art!
NEW SNOWY/ROCKY/MOUNTAINOUS TILESETS AND AREA ART!

Horrific creatures from an alternate plane of existence!
HORRIFIC CREATURES FROM AN ALTERNATE PLANE OF EXISTENCE!

... And here's a snazzy production screencap (and random guitar sprite - because distracted)!

In addition to new tilesets, areas, environment art, new enemies, and additional combat mechanics (picking up and tossing baddies is a blast!), I'm still working through the backbone of the game's levels and stages (or, the critical path). Once that's finished, I'll be working on some of the optional objectives and hidden areas that will be included in the game, in addition to polish and bug testing.

Great progress is being made; there are features and content that are starting to really shine, which is incredibly exciting. There is still much to do though, and I'll keep updating all of you as I slug it out in the trenches!

A very merry happy holiday season to everyone, and thank you all so much for the support this year! Here's to a very barbaric 2015!XOXO, Matt

can't use consumables/"throwables" via "up+attack" combination. Just doesn't work in 4.5 alpha. Previous versions were fine (tried to do the same with my gamepad - getting the same), tried remaping - still no result :(
Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Trey! There is now a "shield" button/key and a "utility" button/key (neither of which can be remapped yet). The utility button/key will now do what "up+attack" used to. This should all be in the "README", ;). Eventually, players will be able to pick if they want a "classic" (truncated control scheme, where UP+ATTACK will yield item usage, and UP or DOWN will control the SHIELD) control scheme, or the newer version :) Hope that helps, and thanks for playing.
