What a beautiful game! Getting something packed with this many features into RPG maker must have taken a lot of talent and passion. The art, music, and game mechanics worked well together. I couldn't even be jealous if you win. I had a lot of fun, but the keyboard mechanics of repeatedly smashing the z button was a bit tiresome on my hand. I could see it working better on a gamepad, but having the option to hold down the key instead would be nicer. I appreciated being rewarded for searching the environment on my own through caves, but the set-up of the environment makes it extremely easy to find them all. I understand that might just have been a limitation created by our deadlines.
Best of luck! I'd appreciate any feedback on my entry too (though I'm almost embarrassed when compared to yours).
