So, I've been thinking about all the complaints about the chibi sprites. Is the problem that they're chibi or that they don't match the character art? If I did a series of chibi/SD character art, would people be interested?
I've been working on a puzzle-heavy game on MZ, and I'm pretty happy will how well it's going so far. This is the first "real" puzzle I was able to get working. It's pretty basic, but I'm proud, regardless. I plan to make this a reoccurring puzzle, and it will be bigger and more complicated in later iterations.
I think the best thing about working with a new engine is that there aren't a lot of plugins, so you're forced to figure out how to event things or find work arounds. I think we've all collectively become a little too dependant on plugins to do everything for us. These engines are literally made to allow us to program without coding. We should be taking advantage of this more!
