The final version of Epic Elf is coming along just fine!
What I'm doing now (to save time, kinda) is when you get to 'the end' of the world map, you go back through the game again only to face it all over in a twisted form. (Example; The Blaze Cave turns into the Chill Cave, The Pond of Dew dries up into the Pond of Dread, the Devil's Desert morphs into the Devil's Field, etc). So even though you go through most of the levels again, they will all be explored in a different way! I think the game will only be around seven hours long, butt that's good enough for me! Thanks again to my small fan group! I wasn't going to finish this game, but I have no reason not to. Maybe Epic Elf 2 will be in the works if this one satisfies.
Hooray for creative backtracking! Because of the way this game is set up I'm sure it will work fine. I guts to admit I have been putting off playing the recent downloads because the finished version seems nigh.
That's what happens when I change a few details in areas, somehow it will open up a loophole of chaos and I overlook it until it's too late! Oh, well! Every game has it's glitch! I'm releasing the 80% done version (should be available anytime now) with all the errors I caught in the 1/2 done version and I'm hoping I found all the big ones! I've got pretty much all the maps done, I just gotta fill 'em in with events!
