I'll no doubt pick this up, since I'm a fan - I patron Kitsune Games to the tune of a dollar or so a month, but it's really Lore Finder (Steam, Itch that I'm waiting for! It's got a real Rogue Legacy vibe, but with Cthulu overtones. One to wishlist if you haven't already.

Looks great! I wonder if cesspool Nintendo will sue them just like they did Great Giana Sisters creators? (rhetorical question)

I doubt it. While this is obviously very inspired by SMB 3, is not a blatantly rip-off like Giana Sisters was.
