Hi there! My name is Shrimp, and I'm the "active" developer behind Spherian Games. BoxxyQuest started out as a joke of mine, back in 2011. In the years since then, it's become something much more for me, and a few of my friends, too. I hope you'll give our game a chance, and have a great time with it!

If you’d like to contact me, the easiest way is by email at shrimpses@gmail.com.
I’m happy to answer questions about the game, as well as hear your thoughts.
Please don’t be shy!

Finishing Touches

And here I thought the "empty" maps were meant as a self-ironic statement, being reminiscent of older RPG Maker XP games. Apparently, not every element in a game about and full of tropes is a trope itself. At least the game runs more smoothly if you aren't a devoted fanatic of the "three tiles rule" religion. :D

Nah, sadly 'twas just me being bad. :P

TBH, I'm not a fan of super-busy maps either. A lot of the "great" maps I see in screenshot threads just look messy. (Not every tile needs to have a thing on it)! But a bit more grass never hurt anyone, right? I tried my best to find a happy medium of sorts.

Big News???

That's one hell of a TV Tropes page, great job!
I'm very impressed and thankful. :D

Please ignore that idiot. He's a dupe account of someone who got banned and wants to kick up trouble.

Yeah, that's what I figured when I saw his post history. Thanks. :P

HI tried to email you but it seems the email is no longer available,when I try to send it says no results found. Once again thanks
I sent you a PM with some help, but that email should totally still be working. I haven't deactivated it or anything. Weird. :/

BoxxyQuest: The Gathering Storm Review

Since I wanted to show what the player can expect structurally, I might have revealed nearly too much here and there. Just give me a holler if you think "less is more" applies to any section of my review.

Nah, it’s all fine. You didn’t give away anything too big. :P

BoxxyQuest: The Gathering Storm Review

I’m stunned. This is greater praise than I ever could’ve hoped for, and I’ll certainly take your criticisms to heart when/if I ever make another game.

One last time, thanks for playing. <3

BoxxyQuest: The Gathering Storm

I just discovered a game-breaking bug, i.e. I got stuck while trying to leave the area.

Agh, why am I not surprised?

When I switched from the standard tile-based movement system to the free-movement one, it broke most of the area transfers. (The events would play twice, since you were technically touching two event tiles). I went through and fixed them all, but I always had a sneaking suspicion that I’d missed one or two.

New patch incoming soon. :P

BoxxyQuest: The Gathering Storm

Even though I want to find everything during my first playthrough, I'm afraid I will miss some things, since some crafty developer even claims that the player won't discover everything during the first playthrough. ;) On the other hand, if it can be avoided somehow for now, let's postpone missing out on stuff to later.

First of all, thank you so much for the kind words! I did add a few things to actively encourage repeat playthroughs, but if you’re interested, then I can send you a message with some hints. :P

BoxxyQuest: The Gathering Storm

I was really anxious after at least two hours without saving, especially because of the Script 'Game_Map' line 305 error.

If it makes you feel any better, I think we're done with the 305 Errors, as this is around the point in development when I switched from "let's use one gigantic tileset for every map," to "let's maybe not do that."
