Five Dojo Simulator 2014

At an eternal dojo atop an equally eternal mountain, four disciples spend life after life growing their murderous arts. -- THE RULES YOU SEE (GAMEPLAY): Being hit by either the knife or sword will kill you instantly. Falling off the plateau will kill you instantly. Defend by dodging, dashing, and using your mind. Be careful, as every move carries openings for mistakes. -- HOW THINGS REALLY ARE: With every death, the victim inherits a buff or a skill from their killer. These benefits persist throughout multiple playthroughs until the game is closed. -- CONTROLS for Xbox/Keyboard: Left Analog Stick/Arrow keys = move, B/B = throwing knife, A/Space = slash with your sword, X/X = dash
