      I realize the challenge is no longer valid, but here is my run of it anyway: Great work on the game thus far! Keep the challenges coming!

      Congratulations @German R Mejia!!!
      Thank you very much for your taking on this challenge, surely it got easier once you started using the roll!! Also thanks for pointing about the hit animation, this is something we implemented when you stepped on a ledge but the thrust continues to push you out; but you are right it is not convenient and we will fix that!
      Another challenger to make the Faeland Dance after victory!! :D
      May your name be immortalized in the challengers' game credits!

      Accidentally didn't post link in last comment !

      Also, I had this happen to me where I got hit in the air, and when I landed near the edge or a platform, it made it seem as if I got hit again, but received no damage but still received the push back and invincibility from when I was supposedly at around 0:09 seconds. I don't know is this is still applicable or happens, but just wanted to share it just in case it was overlooked !

      After spending 2 hrs trying to do this challenge without the roll, and then skipping over the roll scroll because the post said the NPC didnt sell anything haha. I finally completed the challenge 2 hrs after being told ! Thank you again for this challenge. It was ridiculously brutal ! It also seemed to have glitched at the end but I hope it counts ! Try, try again !

      Congratulations @Michael Olson!!! :D
      That was really funny to watch! We'll be working on fixing this Hz issue but yeah, that's a cool idea for Hard Mode! Happy to have you among our Challengers Michael, that required some serious fast paced maneuvers!!! :)

    7. Michael Olson on

      Whew, managed to complete the challenge despite some bugs making it that much more brutal. Good thing I enjoy challenging platformers! Maybe you guys can add a hard difficulty with faster enemies like this after the game releases.

      Congratulations @internisus!!!
      A skilled challenger who pulled this feat in such a short notice and within the time-frame remaining!! Thank you very much for your support and for taking on this challenge
      May your name be immortalized in the challengers' game credits! :)

      I only found out about your game a couple of hours ago, so I had to do this in a hurry!

    10. TALEGAMES Creator on

      Hi German! First you have to acquire the "Evasion Scroll" from Johan in the Town Market, he will give it to you for free! :)

    11. German R Mejia

      Hi there, I've been at the challenge for a day now and I'm having so much trouble ! I've tried it with a PS4 Controller, XBox 1, and the Keyboard ! For some reason I CANNOT roll. I even checked the options in the prototype build and couldnt manage to make it happen. Not even my spacebar was rolling. I'm gonna keep at it still but hopefully I can figure it out haha.

    12. TALEGAMES Creator on

      Hi @Michael Olson! That must look funny, yes please submit the video if you make it at 60hz or just your best trial at 144hz, we will love to see that and have you in our Challengers credits! :D

    13. Michael Olson on

      I've been trying at the challenge for a couple hours now. I took a peek at some of the existing win videos and realized that my game may have issues due to a higher framerate / refresh rate (144hz display). The birds move about twice as fast in my version and my invincibility wears off much faster, making it impossible for me to roll away or dodge in-between successive hits. I've been able to get to the last ledge but the bird swarm is so big at that point that I'm having trouble finding an opening to get past the last goblin. I could probably lower my refresh rate and be fine but I'm gonna keep trying with this 'hard mode' enabled and see if I can manage it. If not then I'll just submit a video of me failing so you can see what it looks like :)

      Congratulations Dylan!!!

      Whew! It took some time, but I managed to complete it. A bit of a mishap in the beginning, but I pulled through! Had to do a celebration dance in the end (I call it the Faeland Dance). I hope you enjoy! :)
