No title yet, going to have the biggest board count of any MZX game, and include almost every conceivable gameplay mechanic and plot point. If you have any idea for a gameplay mechanic, biome, or want a cameo, or even wanna make a board or 2 hit me up.

and of course

I don't believe I've played any of your previous games, but you have my interest with "include almost every conceivable gameplay mechanic and plot point." That's a tall order.

Hello bud! Check out Morning Star and Malardy. Those are the 2 I'm most proud of. Give the others a skim if you want. Musings is pretty sweet too.

It seems like it's a lot but i already have single, double jump, hunger/survival, inventory, base building in there. Anything you wanna see in this MZX game?

I'll give it a go once it's released. I'll hold off any suggestions till after I've had a look at it.

Haha I appreciate that! I added some more boards and engines including reverse gravity, jump, linked some boards up. up to around 60 boards. I dont think this will be my all time best game, Malardy will still probably hold that spot. But who knows.

Trying to figure out if I should have Booshkies, Stolen Zambooboos, or Snarfoogles as monster taming.

Up to around 85 boards. After talking a bunch on discord its possible i may go to 250. we'll see. added a lot more boards and connecting more areas, added pokeballs and figured out the 3 catchable monster types as well as planning where everything is going to be. tiny bit of story in there. I'm making it at random. so far the middle climax and the start of the story is like 2% done. some party members include Zeek from Inanifest and Robo-Jones. List of gameplay mechanics:

mechanics
DONE mech building
STARTED RTS
DONE put in orbs from caverns
DONE pointless open world mechanics
PLANNED monster hunting
STARTED monster capture - snarfoogle, stolen zambooboo, booshkie
airship
stealth section
STARTED double jump
DONEhunger
DONE metroidvania
DONE turn based battle
STARTED base building
DONEshitty mzx sword
fps
DONE gravity flip leads to jrpg
branching dialog/multiple endings
DONE harvesting

Linked up some more boards and spruced up some others. added 3 TV stations. up to 92 boards so far!! I'm using all weaknesses as strengths to blaze through this.

I notice lots of lurkers, if you wanna play my old and best game check this one! https://www.digitalm...how.php?id=1916

Added in the classic noahsoft falling in a pit/color bridges HOWEVER we put in gaurd rails cuz we're not cruel. I figured out the basic way I'm gonna complete the game

step 1:
make 250 boards and all the engines with sprinklings of stories and characters

step 2:
play a bunch of MZX games I haven't yet like Lachesis and others. Replay every DHewer game

step 3:
put in the story and characters

step 4:
done

How are you gonna structure the game? Can you somewhat freely move between the boards like an open world, or is it going to be a more linear string of boards, for example?

Kinda a mix honestly. Lots of open world roaming, but a few linear paths that must be backtracked like metroid too. I'm actually making more boards and levels than i even know how to connect at this point.

I'm sure you'll figure something out. I still remember how much I struggled with structuring my game early on. Took a while to figure out how the player actually progresses through the overworld and the varying one-shot dungeons.

You revisit some classic MZX and ZZT locations including the Castle of Zeux. I was fleshing it out today, got about 3 or 4 boards. Also of course fake credits and fake game overs. as well as real ones.
