Were those procedurally generated comments? They were pretty cool.

Liked the overall concept :-)

Thanks for the comments, guys! Yeah, I was aiming for this God of War kind of experience.

@Ludipe Thanks! Unfortunately, no. Well, kinda. I procedurally generated them and then used the files :D

This is so cute, I love how wholesome it is haha. I guess it would be nice to have more voice lines for the announcer, it repeated quite a lot, or to have more in-depth gameplay (although I guess just mashing stuff is part of the charm)
