I practiced for many hours, trying to perfect this on a controller. I found it to be somewhat easier on a keyboard but I don't want to play like that.
The input is to backdash and cancel with down button on dpad. This makes you go a lot faster when done correctly repeatedly.
Alas, there's no such thing as me successfully perfecting this input, it's simply too hard for me, and I believe that it is too hard for the many.
After those hours, my solution was to put backdash on right bumper (I did that initially to ease the alternation process) and put it on turbo. That way I only need to successfully make one input; this greatly alleviates the difficulty of using this feature and makes it much more fun practicing double attacking from backdash and moving around in the game. This should, in my opinion, be default. If I hold down the backdash, I should be able to cancel it continously by pressing down.
It also alters the way high jump works, a side effect that is more or less desireable. It's fun that it bursts more but it is dubious if that's a useful thing really.

ShroudedTraveler: I wouldn't want them in it (I have no love for them, whatsoever), they were just the first 'have a friend' with them character I thought of. Probably because of Smash Ultimate.

Ryngar Acia: I unironically hope they're Asha and Pepelogoo.

Enkeria: Would hope for O.D. for the 3rd playable character. But would be fine as the main character in the sequel too.

XombieMike: It's confirmed to be a cross over character, so not OD

Redogan: Sheesh. Old habits die hard. I jumped on here to read up about the 3rd playable character and instinctively looked around and clicked on a wall mac.

Time 4 Tea: I really like this forum... I just wish it was a bit more active. Perhaps we need a Ritual of the Night 2 to liven things up?

XombieMike: Thanks. I think this place still serves a good purpose for keeping organized linkable info. Most discussions happen on Discord these days.

Enkeria: Ritual of the Night 2 is a thing that will happen. Yes.

ShroudedTraveler: This is still the primary place I look at for info/updates. Occasionally, I lurk. The discord has too many discussions for me and seems super tight knit, so I typically just leave it muted since I won't check it enough to really break in.
Aug 23, 2022 12:58:34 GMT -6
ShroudedTraveler: And by that I mean, there seem to be regulars and most people are aware of each other, so the conversations move too quickly for me to reasonably keep up with how rarely I check in

XombieMike: The announcements channel is good on Discord. We will post updates here too, though.

XombieMike: The recent Journey update has been neglected here.
