Soul chase can be played for the story, or competitively for speed runners. It is specially designed for speed runs. This is an indie game that was originally made for a game jam for indie games. Everything was made by me (coding, pixel art, animation) except for the music which was from opengameart.org (see below for artists). Soul Chase is a Free to Play challenging 2D Action Platformer with retro pixel art graphics. It may take many tries, specially on the boss, but don't rage quit! It only takes a bit of practice ;)
You play as a knight who chases after his own soul through enemies, bosses and obstacles along the way. The knight was cursed by a witch in exchange for power. The knight is never allowed to sleep again, or his soul will escape from his body, and the knight has to run after it and catch it, or his soul will be taken by the witch.
The big problem is, the knight ALWAYS falls asleep so he has to chase his soul every night.
I made everything in the retro game except for the music, which was made by a friend or taken from open game sources i.e. opengameart.org, a great place for indie developers to find assets.

This indie game is heavily inspired by the Popular indie game Shovel Knight.
