This is great - I hope we get to play this soon! :)/>


Appreciated :)

It's going forward real smooth so far. The main file is 8.33mb by now.
I feel like it's for sure gonna be done before hitting much more than 9mb. Or so I hope!

I think the hardest part is over by now, so I just have to stay motivated until I'm done. Sometimes I'm feeling excited about the project, sometimes not so much. I'm sure anyone making MZX games can relate!


I hear that.

Still working on the game, but took a break. Only minor tweaks over the last month, but lots of new stuff added since my last post of August 2022.
The main reason its taking so long to complete is that I'm really picky about how to handle the final few things that I want to add, such as
the special abilities for the final two boss fights and a few more items/weapons I want to come up with. But the game is somewhat mechanically simple,
so I don't have that many moving parts to work with when trying to come up with something interesting. Once in a while, I get an idea that feels like
just the right one, and then I get back to work. That's how it's been since last August.

I also need to fix some minor issues, plug a few holes, replace a few riddles that I can't even solve myself anymore (a good indicator they're too hard
or don't make enough sense.)

But I'm close enough that I could wrap up the game in a weekend if I didn't care about quality lol

Take your time and wrap it up how you see best. Donít need to finish it asap. Iím still working on my own game every couple of years I pop on and add something eventually Iíll get done but itís more for me than anyone else.

Yeah, I agree with that way of looking at it. Ultimately, it's just a hobby project. I do wish it took a bit less time to make games, but at least its fun.
I'm starting to feel the itch to move on to new ideas though.

[X] Area 3 & boss: Done
[X] Area 4 & boss: Done

[\] Final boss tower: One more floor, then it's done.
[ ] Final boss: incomplete
[X] Story: intro
[ ] Story: ending
[ ] Last few puzzles
[ ] Put houses and NPCs in one more small village to the north

Finished boss number 7 today and I'm pretty happy with how their skills work.
Also did a bunch of other stuff, including the story intro, which is something I've been
putting off for ages.

EDIT: "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this board."

So I guess Imgur is not usable anymore. I just went through 5 minutes of cursing to figure out
my login for that site for nothing. *sigh*
