I'm really honored and flattered that folks are enjoying Minima.</em></p> <p>This is my little homage to the old-school 8-bit Ultima games as they were found on the C128. I hope you enjoy it.</p> <p>It exhausts almost every resource available to a PICO-8 app, and required minimization before it could be converted into a cartridge. The <a href="https://github.com/Feneric/Minima">full source of Minima</a> is available on GitHub for anyone interested in how it works. I have also provided a manual for it in a couple of formats, so you may want to grab and peruse the <a href="https://github.com/Feneric/Minima/raw/master/Minima%20Manual.pdf">Minima manual as a PDF</a> or the <a href="https://github.com/Feneric/Minima/raw/master/Minima%20Manual.epub">Minima manual as an ePub</a> as well as the cartridge itself. Downloadable binaries are also available on the <a href="https://feneric.itch.io/minima">Itch.io Minima page</a>.</p> <p>If you have any comments, questions, or even just random thoughts related to it, I'll be happy to listen. I have played all the way through and do not know of any bugs in this version (1.1.1) but I could have easily missed some. I believe this to be the best version of Minima yet.</p> <p><strong>New in version 1.1.1</strong></p> <ul> <li> <p>Bug fix for game freeze that was impacting some folks in Zanders Guild Shop.</p> </li> <li>Bug fix for weird graphics glitch that was intermittently causing animations to get messed up after several game loads.</li> </ul> <p><strong>New in version 1.1</strong></p> <ul> <li> <p>Dungeons are bigger and more challenging.</p> </li> <li> <p>There is a guild shop with skeleton keys and torches.</p> </li> <li> <p>Creature movement is much improved.</p> </li> <li> <p>There are more townies, more dialog, and more clues.</p> </li> <li> <p>Treasure chests are back, meaning less grinding is required.</p> </li> <li> <p>Shrines can be entered.</p> </li> <li> <p>Many minor bugs and glitches have been fixed.</p> </li> <li> <p>The manual is fully updated to reflect the changes.</p> </li> <li>The cartridge picture is much improved.</li> </ul> <p>Please note that loading / saving is incompatible between 1.0 and 1.1. That is, saves made with version 1.0.X cannot be loaded into version 1.1.X.</p> <p>This version makes use of Tyler Neylon's JSON parser as suggested by <a href="https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?uid=25532"> @freds72</a>. Minima is still hitting the wall, but now it's the compression size wall more than the token count wall.</p> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31831 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=31831 Thu, 06 Sep 2018 12:46:59 UTC
