======== Summary ========

Burning Embers is a dungeon crawler RPG centered around your player having the only light in the whole dungeon. To escape, you must collect the four Soul Shards which are found in various chests throughout the dungeon. Once all four are collected, you will notice that the boss door, located in the room with the four altars, has now opened, allowing you to fight the Grim Reaper. Throughout this adventure, make sure to watch your torch because as time goes on, it will slowly deplete.  Coal, which can be found in vases and by killing enemies, is used to refuel your torch. The torch must also be placed on the ground before equipping a new weapon and walking outside of it's light causes you to take damage.

I played the updated version on GameJolt, but the map doesn't work (Windows build). Without a map, it's just too difficult to complete. The torch also ran out quite quickly, so you might want to add some more vases with coal. It was also nice watching you make the game on stream.

Thanks! The map works but its in a chest (go up to the room with vases on either side of the door, go through that door, then keep going left) but Im glad you enjoyed playing it
