Here are the two main means of getting anywhere; the Generic Hookshot (tm) and the Generic Doublejump (patent pending). Also don't worry, the background wont hopefully be all black in the end.

Superb Joe: Ah, I'm sad to hear that. Thanks, and I wish you luck!

It is awesome how unique you make this feel with how seemingly conceptually generic it is.
EXECUTION PROWESS!

Also all of these enemies look really neat. What is your approach to designing them?

Another amazing GIF. Thanks!

Also, I hope you consider on keeping the black background or stick with minimal details to the background to help keep that strong readability.

Dudebro this is sick.

I've been thinking about the whole "not doing something special" thing too. It's a strange problem. I feel like I need to learn the rules before I try to do anything too crazy.

I like the black background too, it makes the spirtes stand out more! You should think about leaving it as it is.

Also, just gotta say these GIFs are a great way to show this game off. Kudos

I only just realized that that is water. I thought it was a blue laser or something.

Yeah, I think a more smoother water surface will work better for showing that it is water.

I really love the look of this game, and I'm super hyped *o*

Keep on going Hempuli, you rock! :D

Is the snake thing supposed to be visible through the darker brown sand/earth tiles?

The water there is silly because there'll be blue background stuff there to make it clearer; that specific area is a bit unfinished graphically.

@happymonster: that enemy wont appear in that screen; the darker part is actually background art but indeed looks glitchy with an enemy like that.

@Jakman: Mostly I just think of creatures that'd work with a specific environment and then think of how they could move, or think of cool movement patterns and then consider what kind of a creature could use them.

I'd love to see that worm monster thing put up little bits of debris when it slams into or out of the ground. I also agree that the black BGs look sharp, please leave at least a couple of rooms without a detailed background Smiley

Progress has been slowish due to enormous amounts of university stuff all the time. I've started working on a whole new area, which is rather interesting and also not all that big so it should be finished relatively soon.

Due to the slow progress, I have only this tiny picture to show:

Fish!

As for the background readability thing, the amount of background detail will be something like what is shown here at most, apart from some rooms with special background art.

Is it too bad?
