What’s New

Version 1.12

- By popular demand, added a detailed audio latency calibration screen with support for automatic and manual calibration as well as in-game testing.
- Added a toggle for predictive audio (enabled by default), which plays slash sounds exactly in time with the music instead of responding to your input (recommended for devices with high latency).
- Set default latency adjustment to 50ms (as a first guess; can be tuned).
- Fixed buttons in the main menu being tappable during screen transitions.

I freaking love this

The art style is so pretty and it just fits perfectly. Plus the music is amazing, it is perfectly timed with the game and really brings the entire aesthetic together. You have all my respect for making this, such a lovely and unique game.
