You are not the hero. You are dog.

This is a souls-like PICO-8 console game, playable in your browser or on the PICO-8 Fantasy Console. 

A must for fans of Bloodborne, Dark Souls and Nioh.

The legendary matagi hero Snow Wolf is once again called for help, in order to rescue the mayor's children from the Yakuza, taken under dubious circumstances. A blizzard blows, and visibility is weak. Snow  wolf sets out, with a sidekick, dog, in order to save the children and bring justice to the evil-doers. But by kami-sama is he so damned tired of all of this.

Snow Wolf is powerful. Snow wolf can kill his foes in a few blasts of his trusty rifle. But dog is just dog. Good dog :-)

Game features:

* Souls-like gameplay
* Stamina management
* Rest and resume at bonfires
* Different enemy types with various attacks and personalities
* Challenging gameplay
* Sound

This game will be finished after the Fantasy Console GameJam. 

***HINTS***

Always wait for Snow Dog, don't rush ahead too far, or Snow Dog won't be able to shoot the enemies for you. Take your time.

Invincible Dash through enemy attacks - they are telegraphed, so make sure you dash at the right time or you will be hit.

Don't be afraid to walk back or away from enemies - but don't run away the wrong way or you'll bring in more enemies!

If you are low in health, go to Snow Dog and let him know.

Rest at bonfires or you will lose your progress!

Look forward to:

* More enemies
* Find out what happens to the children and how Snow Wolf will bring all those responsible to justice
* A world of a mountain to explore including clue-finding, branching paths and metrovania-style gameplay.
* New moves???

Thanks!

(This is my first time coding in a Game Jam, and coding for the PICO-8, and also first time coding in LUA!)
