it's been a while, but three crests is still coming together. i wish i could be more detailed but a lot of it is just scripting, which is kind of boring.

on the other hand, levels 1 AND 2 are coming along nicely. here's a room from level 2, as well as the boss battle. it's moosh's monarch ascendant script with custom ether sprites!

some level 1 screens. interpret the oracle/GB references however you wish.

the mini-dungeon formerly known as rotted stump has started being reworked into what i've called "greatwood cathedral". compared to the previous two mini-dungeon reworks, i want this one to be more puzzle focused. note to self, get someone to fix that colour cube script (it is broken)

and a slight quality of life improvement, and a nerf of sorts. the subscreen has had some items and equipment reshuffled.

when i first implemented moosh's seed shooter/satchel script, the ember seeds weren't triggering burn flags at all. unsure as to why, i carried on with the quest without ember seeds being included in the two demos. i was messing around with the two unused seeds (ember and scent) the other day; upon realising that burn flags were being triggered by the seeds finally, i put them back into the main quest.
this was an easy decision to make, as the lantern weapon was overpowered, acting as an AoE with no drawbacks - i don't and won't have magic/stamina/etc in this quest. by capping the uses to at most 20 at a time, i hope this encourages the player to be less reliant on fire.

this also means the lantern becomes its own piece of equipment as well; it technically fell under both items and equipment courtesy of dummy item bundles. now, it's its own standalone item - it'll still be acquired from a shop like the demos, but the seeds will be acquired automatically from - oh, go play the demo already

finally, the red potion is now "equipment" too - no longer will you have to worry about accidentally pressing A or B and using up your potions! it now works like the GB potions, where it heals you upon your health reaching 0.

this looks really awesome ngl, it gives off the exact vibe that makes me nostalgic for the oracles games and makes me replay them from time to time

I agree with Hergiswi Taco Chopper, the progress above looks amazing, and I love some of the updates to the equipment/item layout and designations.  Can't wait for the next beta you need tested so I can help you out even more.  Keep up the awesome work!
