And that's just the Overworld. None have seen anything pertaining to the underworld yet...On a side note: Still trying to decide whether or not i want to leave the enclosed mountain area in the center the way it is or turn it into a desert area like the western part of it. Geographically, it would probably be a desert region being closed off by mountains.
How about expanding the desert area while still leaving the mountain area next to it somehow? The mountain area looks neat but the desert does feel too small to be able to get lost in a little (isn't it only like 5 screens?). Especially with the big rock in the middle, though perhaps you weren't going for a feeling of slightly getting lost, I dunno.
Also, awesome progress. I like the pixel art in the inventory.
