Thanks! It honestly doesn't even feel like that much.

Wires updating once per frame was more of a way to avoid having very long wires potentially hold up an update, but I do like the visual effect. I'd kinda like to make it time-controlled instead, even.

Yeah, I know forest 2 is a bit... massive. There's a tricky balance to strike here: you only need ~⅔ of the hearts, so surely some of them should be harder to get, so going for 100% is actually an accomplishment and not something that happens naturally just from walking through the levels. But at the same time, making them too hard will frustrate people who are trying for 100%, even though the game doesn't require it and nothing actually changes.

Ha. Lexy used to walk faster, too. I kinda want to do something clever here, like sync the walking animation framerate to Lexy's movement speed.

The tail is, uh, mostly positioned that way because I ran out of space in the frame. :) I extended it downwards for the sake of jumping, but extending it leftwards would mean I have to fix a bunch of anchors, and apparently I was too lazy.

I'm not particularly happy with the parallax, yeah. The forest ought to be visible for much longer when moving upwards, but even in the hub it's half-buried beneath the ground. I even had multiple layers I wanted to add in, but the math was not working out and I didn't have time to sort it all out.

Uggh, controls. The movement keys are on the right on a keyboard, even if you use the numpad... but a lot of games use WASD, which is on the left, so you can still use the mouse, and of course that's where they are on controllers. I don't know, I wish there were a decent standard here; I've also had people complain that I didn't use Z and X. I do like access to the I key for the inventory, so maybe sometime I'll try a WASD + JKL sort of thing, though that puts my hands kind of close together...

I synced the walking animation framerate to the character's movement speed on my own game, and I'm pretty happy with the effect. I'm sure you won't have much trouble figuring it out yourself if you decide to do it.

WASD+JKL is probably what I would use for my own game, if I had the option. I suppose there's something to be said for allowing people to customize the controls. I look forward to moving on from PICO-8 so I can avoid the control restrictions, among others.
