Matt Birch from Heavy Spectrum Entertainment Labs wrote in a PlayStation Blog an update on development, as well. He spoke on how hard at work the team is to ensure the gameplay is up to par.
“On the gameplay side, we’ve been very lucky to get lots of feedback from people who took the time to play our previous demo at various shows, and we’ve been working out how best to use that to improve the game. To that end, we’ve been iterating and tweaking our combat system further, as well as making adjustments to help the platforming flow better. We’re trying our best to make sure that the combat in particular has layers to discover and that truly mastering the game is going to be something players can enjoy doing as they uncover the secrets of Aarbron’s world.”
