Top 8 D-2 asked for feedback, so here's some feedback.

I liked it. The colourscheme is beautiful, I like the waterfall in the middle, and I love the climbing wall. I like the colour-coded levers and gates - I can see what I'm meant to do. Where it has a problem is how busy it is. Levels and layering are great but there are so many going on here that I'm not always sure what's floor and what's roof. So, very pretty but a bit tricky to read. I think it's those five ... buttresses? The tall bits of wall sticking forward from the main wall? that are messing me up. I feel like I should be able to walk behind them or over them but tracing the intended path shows that they're blockages. And since they're basic A-tiles the top of them butts up against the tiles above and gives the illusion that they're a floor layer.

I'm one of the ones that voted for Entry 2, but the decision was not an easy. Granted, WaywardMartian did have a point about Entry 2 being very busy in comparison to Entry 1 (which looked more organized and clear), but having said that, I liked the bold moves that were done for Entry 2, like the giant waterfall. Entry 2 could be used as either a dungeon or as a village, and to me, all that Entry 2 needs is a bit of cleanup by removing some tiles to make the area look more organized.

Since it was a hard choice and a very close call i went with the map that made the most sense the quickest to me... And that was entry A.

Entry B tho beautifully crafted is a little confusing/chaotic to look at. I Will say i like the colorscheme of map B more but in the end the chaos is what put it slightly at a disadvantage.

I've been working on something on and off for a few years now, and I've been reluctant to share any details on the project before I had anything playable because I did not want to generate hype only for the project to go back on hiatus. That being said I believe what I'm working on is very unique and pushes the boundaries of what RPG Maker projects can be. Bold claims, I know but just wait.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms :)

I did an experiment to try to solve the art style problem between RTP and 3D models.
But, it feels this grimdark world is going to end even faster. :kaoswt2:
