I just wanted to mention a detail: The cows on James' farm are so adorable! I worked on a farm for some years (shoveling cow dung and stuff like that), just remembered that time. I really like the animations (and the hearty "mooh"), well done!
And before I forget there is also a little bug I encountered: While I like the new William design, the guy seems to be a little bit... tiny now. And floating too. ;) I loaded the savegame from the previous version, could that be the problem?
edit: I noticed that it happens when I return to the bar from the farm, not when I load a savegame from the bar itself. There is also another thing I'm not sure if it's a bug: The two pirates don't always sit at the table when I enter the bar. Is that intended?
