Now it's time to slowly begin with the third floor! Here we'll have a slightly different floor type, and the decorations will be a bit more fancy seeing as we're moving up to some fancy people's living quarters. As such I've put two busts in this room, and further, similar decorations will be added; though right now I'm a little unsure of how much I can put in this room since I don't know if it'll be used for fighting yet.


I think after this room I'll go back over the rooms I've already made and add some creepy decorations for their spirit world counterparts, where everything gets an added dose creepiness! Stay tuned~


Today it's patch day! On frontline we now have a bunch of new quests, items, craftables, and so on! Also, sound effects!! 

So basically, the patch you'll be able to play today is what we intend as a release for Stable, once all the bugs have been ironed out. As always, we're super interested in hearing your feedback on these new additions, so please go ahead and share your thoughts! 

I'd say the main thing we added aside from a bunch of quests are the memory orbs, of which there are five in total. Can you find them all?

These next few days Teddy will be busy with bug fixing (unless through some miracles there's none to be fixed), while me and Fred will get back to the ghost ship. First though, here's a few additional things you'll be able to find in the game now that I didn't show before:


We also decided to change the name and shop title for the potion salesman, which was previously simply 'The Potion' and is now what you see below:


...and a bunch of other fixes/additions, although I never saved those after I made them. Oh well! You might as well just jump into the game and see all of this for yourselves instead :D

Here's the corridor, which will connect the two smaller rooms showed previously. For this room, we've made some special decorations; cannons and cannon balls!


We'll probably place these cannon balls here and there on the first floor to serve as 'ammo' for the wizard's telekinesis attack: after all, what better thing to hurl at the hero but a cannon ball? That should do some damage... :)



Alright, stop, we're actually not done with patch stuff yet (I knew it). After testing a bunch of quests in the desert each of us got quite annoyed with the fact that there's no teleport plate in Port Monnaie, so as a bonus for people who have a lot of extra gold to spend, we'll include a salesman selling a teleport plate that will activate for Port Monnaie once you purchase it.

As such, this NPC salesman need not only a sprite, but also a portrait, both which can be seen below:




New week, more ghost ship backgrounds! In this second smaller room, we're introducing the first giant hole in a floor on the ghost ship. On the first floor, we kind of wanted to embrace the fact that we're on a half-ruined ship by having areas filled with water, but on these upper floors we want dark holes here and there instead, which we intend to fill with blinking eyes and other spooky things when you're in the ghost world:




Next, we have a set of rooms one next to the other, both of the smaller kind. There will be a corridor above these two rooms, where the path is blocked, so you have to pass through these two rooms to get to the other side. And here's the first one:


Like with the bunk room, we have a few ideas for ghost world-only decorations here too. In this case, we want to make a spooky version of the painting on the right and possibly some spooky shine around the candles and lanterns on the tables.



Now, there's a lot more Ghost Ship backgrounds to do, so let's jump straight back into it! First up is a bunk room of sorts, where the sailors used to sleep when they were still working on the ship and they weren't ghosts:

Here you will battle enemies, and once a prototype for the kitchen is ready, I will add the kitchen on the right side, one platform up but on the same screen (I will add a jumpdown back into this bunkroom from there). One idea we have for decorations here when toggling into the ghost world is that you'll see skeletons of the sailors in their beds... But I'm not sure if this will be too macabre or not. What do you guys think?
