Welcome to the Monthly Review, which is totally on time! This covers the period of time since our last update in mid March, and a total of six new quests have been released since then!
First of all, nicklegends has stepped down as host for Map of the Month
. We considered retiring the contest, but after hearing from all of you, we've decided to keep the contest open. If you're a fan, why not submit and vote? My hope is that the energy community members have for keeping the contest going will translate into more entries and more creativity. Are you building a quest? Why not share a map there as a teaser to garner some interest? There's no need to make a whole map solely for the contest. Creators sharing their projects and creativity is one of the things this community is all about. Many thanks to nicklegends for hosting the contest for so long, and to Eddy for stepping up to host the contest now that he's retired.
Now, about those quests
. First, we have Prismatic Triangle by newcomer Elvis002. He tries some fairly ambitious area aesthetics in the classic tileset. Not a bad effort for his first quest! Next up is IcyZelda by IcyMind. If classic style quests with traditional dungeon structures are your thing, you'll probably find this pretty cool! (Ice puns are the height of wit and never go out of style.) Elemental Journey by NACl586 is a classic quest in structure, with an emphasis on stylistic dungeons themed after a variety of unique elements. Chocolate Shadow Temple is a sweet little mini quest from Joelmacool. At a bit over an hour long, it promises some unique gimmicks. Hyrule Remastered by TheRock compiles highlight dungeons from his previous quests into one quest aiming for concentrated quality. Finally, What You Deserve by Lüt began as a 24 hour quest contest entry, and was well received as a short, competent classic-styled quest.
We don't usually cover scripts here, but I'd like to make a special mention for Moosh's Pit Script
. Pits are commonly used in scripted quests, and the most popular one is old and no longer supported here. If you're looking for an alternative, give Moosh's a try.
That's all for this month. With so much new content popping up, you should have plenty to keep you busy until next time. Happy questing!
