I’m really happy with some of the maps I’ve made lately. But it’s frustrating not being able to show them yet. I’ll make some more gifs once the foes and NPCs are placed, but even then I’m not showing off very much.
I’ve got the first two premium dungeons done. The first one is super pretty and has some reasonably challenging puzzles, and an interesting gimmick for the boss: you can choose which weather you prefer for the fight. The second one takes things in an even more experimental direction…. It’s the “get the paper out and take notes” type of puzzle solving. I’m sure some people will hate it, but I look forward to the reactions.
And finally, I often get asked how big the world map is compared to EBF4, and it’s looking like it’s going to be roughly double the size, on account of each map being 50% bigger and also building interiors increasing the size a lot.
Anyway, I’ve been trying to buy a house the last few weeks. It’s a very competitive market at the moment, with everything decent having around 5 people fighting over it. I’m not in a hurry yet, so I’m not going all out with my bids. It’s kind of fun looking at houses, but also sad when you get somewhat attached to them and then get outbid later. Oh well.
