[[UPDATE]]
If you have the demo version 0.011 or 0.02 you can download this patch to update it to version 0.021 This update fixes some bugs, tweaks some enemies and adds a 3 character naming system to the score and time records! The download link above has also been updated and it always leads to the newest version!
(This patch is not compatible with version 0.01, if you downloaded the game in the first couple of days it’s been available you can just download the new version off of that same download link as before.)

If and when I start releasing videos on YouTube and get a bigger audience (hopefully soon), I'll promote the fuck out of this lovely looking game :heart:

He's called Spaztique :), I think he has one of the programmers with him in the video? Anyways, here's the link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HY8a3p… (though you might have already seen it xD)

Oh yes I have seen it... I thought it was somebody else >w>
Yeah, this Spaztique guy is friends with one of the programmers that helped me, and this same programmer sent me the video as soon as it was up...

I really like this game so far. The graphics, music, animation, it all rocks!
I have to say that having growing up with NES, SNES, and Genesis consoles, that I know the difference between these new "retro-style" games, and a truly authentic 16-bit style game like MajiKana.

From the animations to the music and sound effects, to the fade out screen and transitions, MajiKana truly is the living spirit of the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive.
The donation has been made and I can't wait to see more! ^_^

Q and W keys play the screen wipe animations. Was this a debugging feature that wasn't removed?

Probably... I didn't even know this was there... I play using the arrow keys, and the game's default is the arrow keys, so I didn't even touch WASD... I'll talk to the programmers about this...

This is an awesome game! The controls, visuals, music, art; everything is amazing. The boss is hard if you don't know what to do (which I like, and gotta remember those hitboxes ;) )
I do have one thing to note, which is that the demo crashed for me while getting hit by two bats (in the stage section before the boss) at once and swinging the hammer; I had to force close it, and even when closed I still hear the music (while I do love the music, not being able to turn that off... xD) so had to restart my laptop. 
Edit: Also, I got stuck here gyazo.com/3837881dac24234ab20d…
and here I got stuck in mid-air, pressing down resolved it but other directions didn't work gyazo.com/cdcbacecc36ff26d4324… (this place seems also a bit glitchy when you jump+press down at the same time).
gyazo.com/51f3f316de8e830f767c…gyazo.com/16cb4df42d68fd4091c1… (for both of these you need to keep holding the right button, so isn't that bad)
I'll be reporting more glitches if I come across them (I'm sorry but I find finding them kinda fun ^^; ). Let's make it smooth before the final release ;p 

Anyway, I'm 100% sure this will be an amazing game! (I wouldn't actually be surprised if this is a game that speedrunners would pick up. Speaking of that, I really love that once you beat the boss once you get a timer under the stage number)
I really wish I could donate however I'm totally broke, but maybe I'll draw some fanart at some point ;)
Keep up the good work!

As for the error with the bats: If you can duplicate the error, please do tell us exactly what the error message said so we can fix it easier.

I've been trying to replicate it for a bit, with no luck yet. But there was no error message last time; it didn't respond to anything at all. 
Edit: I may actually just try to record when trying, although I probably won't have much time for it today anymore.

Yeah, we are aware of most of these glitches, a couple of people already reported them to us, but I didn't know about the "getting hit by the bats and swinging your hammer at the same time" one... I'll talk to the programmers about it...
We still need to polish those jump-through platforms, but keep in mind that once you go up through them you can't go back down! So don't even bother trying xD
If you want those gems you'll have to find another way to get them ;3
I'm glad you're enjoying the game ^^
If you can't donate, no problem! You can still help by spreading the word about the game!
Fanarts are appreciated too ;3

Ah ok that's good to hear! In that case I'll only report the 'game-breaking' glitches if necessary.
The bats & hammer one happened only once and I forgot to take a screenshot sadly, who knows it might be an one-time thing, but that might indeed be a good idea to let the programmers know. 
But yeah I'm really enjoying the game a lot! I especially love how many different paths there are~ Some of the underground path jumps are very tricky, love it xD
And I'll sure spread the word!

No no! You can report everything you find!
I was just telling you that some other people have already found it too >w>
I'm glad you like the branching paths ^^
They'll be all over the full version!

Danicky Featured By Owner Edited Jul 1, 2015  Student Artist
Ah okay, sure :3
Also, while I'm at it, I have something 'new' to report. I was trying to replicate the bat&hammer thing, and this happened gyazo.com/a24a05bd165493d40f82… Got stuck here. It's in a slightly different location than last time (last time was more above here) and I'm not sure if both bats hit at the same time, but here I got hit by at least 1 bat and swung the hammer at the same time. Pressing down got me unstuck, nothing else worked. 
Edit; Happened a second time, got it recorded this time
More edits; Happens 2 times during this video, although the second time is without the hammer. So maybe the hammer isn't part of the cause? www.youtube.com/watch?v=daOSf8…

Looking forward to it~!

Good to hear! 
Ah and you don't have to go all out of the way to send a new link just for me xD (Except if you want me to test it out of course~) As long as it's fixed in the full version. Besides, if even trying to replicate it is hard, it shouldn't be too much of a problem while still in demo version. Anyway, for now I'll try for a bit more to replicate it (and try other stuff), maybe it could make fixing it easier?

Actually, we already know what's the problem and how to replicate it...
You see, when Kana is crouching, naturally her hitbox is smaller vertically, and when you jump while crouching she's still in her crouching animation for a couple of frames, If you manage to get Kana in her crouching animation while going up right before you hit a ceiling surface, and try hammering while touching the ceiling surface, that's how you'll get stuck, and since Kana's hit box is smaller when she crouches, that's why you can free yourself if you press down, there's a place where you can easily replicate this glitch, it's in that part with a low ceiling near the gems that you can only get a certain way...
Here's how we'll fix it, since you can only get stuck upwards due to how Kana's hitbox instantly grows vertically when she gets out of her crouching sprite, we'll check in every frame of the game if Kana's hitbox is overlapping with the "wall" object, and whenever it is, we'll move Kana's sprite downwards 1 pixel at a time until her hitbox isn't overlapping with the "wall" object anymore, all of this will happen in less than a frame, so you'll not even see Kana's sprite overlap with a wall!

What a worthwhile playthrough! I haven't had the experience of a classical style game like this for a very long time. Your game really does feel classic, what with respecting graphical limitations, the love you put into the art, the skillful programming of Team Gaijin Alex, it all is quite stellar.

It was definitely a treat to see a demo of MajiKana finally emerge for us to enjoy. Let's hope this kicks off from here, my hopes are high for this project!

I'm glad you think so ^^
Except for 2 things:
- The game is Sega Genesis style, not NES style, and it actually respects the limitations!
- The final game is gonna be even harder than Shovel Knight! Mwahahahaha~ *evil laugh* (Sorry for that >u<)

If you enjoy the game, please consider making a donation ^^

I can't get passed the fishes in stage 2 though xD. Is that were the demo is supposed to end?

Actually, it's all just a single stage... And if you can't get past certain part, try lowering the difficulty setting!
The demo has a boss and high score system! Keep trying to your heart's desire!
