It's mostly just meant as a decoration for the game world - I intend for these happy little fellows to be located in ponds and lakes (AKA inaccessible areas).

Whoops, nearly forgot to post a spoiler this week. This week's spoiler is... new boots!

I'm not quite done the full sheet yet, but I'm getting close! Anyway, it's intended to complete the basic armour set that has the same colour scheme. With that, we just might have a decent enough number of basic outfits for me to start focusing on other stuff.

For no reason at all, here's a pointless look at the basic outfit sets available and what they might represent:

This week's spoiler is... some concept art!

Please excuse how sloppy this artwork is, its only purpose is to serve as reference material for my pixels. Anyway, I've been thinking more about actual game content lately, so I'm starting to make plans and assets for dungeons. With some new assets and a few small feature additions, I'm optimistic we can come up with something reasonably interesting and challenging even with the game's current limitations.

This week's spoiler is... a new challenge area!

It's not done yet, but it'll basically just be another tough area to keep high level players busy. It won't be anything too fancy for now, it'll pretty much function just like 'the gauntlet'. The 3 paths represent 3 difficulty levels, so uh... I guess we'll see if players will be able to clear all 3 when these maps are ready!

This week's spoiler is... new paintings/decorations in-game!

I was thinking we could use more framed pictures/paintings in the game besides the 'world map' painting littered about the buildings of the island. Just wanted to spruce up the ol' world a little bit.

This week's spoiler is... a sad attempt at new tiles!

The tiles still need to be refined more, of course. I'm just trying to find a pattern that looks right first. I think I'm getting a little closer to that goal, but it's a bit of a struggle. I'm avoiding looking at other game tiles for reference since I don't want to end up copying them.

Here's a look at some failed attempts that didn't quite turn out the way I wanted!

Well, I'll keep trying until I get it looking better.

I was feeling a bit too aimless before, so I made this concept art. Now I seem to be getting somewhere!

With some new wall tiles and a door in progress, I'll probably be able to adjust the floor tiles better to make them fit the room (I haven't done that yet). Before I do that, I'll likely work on the pillars and ceiling edge so the room doesn't look so naked.
