Wyatt got Skills!

This is a quick look at the customizable combat skill trees available to Wyatt as he levels up. These are passive combat abilities that greatly effect Wyatt s offensive, defensive, and magical abilities. The final tier abilities were left out of the video because they effect “Limit Mode” which will be detailed another time. The dark magic abilities seem a little weak in this video because I only had demonic enemies in the game up to this point and they are highly resistant to dark magic.

Here is a rundown of the skills in their current state for those of you who want to know more about the skills (some may change with further balancing at a later date)

    I just spent a good chunk of the past two days trying to dig secrets out of the original. Glad to see more will be done with these characters/this concept.
