About The Whipper:
Still in development by a solo indie, The Whipper is a 2D action-platformer that combines beauty and brutality - beauty in the environments, brutality in the gameplay.
The main inspiration behind The Whipper is 1991's Castlevania 4 + Slavic mythology.
You can now TRY THE DEMO OF STAGE 1 ON STEAM, where you play as a whip wielding hero who can attack in all 8 directions and rip anything and anyone to pieces.

The idea isn't to copy Castlevania 4 100%, in fact, things like bottomless pits, one hit deaths and the stairs have been removed.
There are also new mechanics added that were not in Castlevania 4, such as sprinting, shooting projectiles, and a new continuous attack.
