Thank you for your review, sorry I reply this late, was quite busy..
The big map you couldn't get across was the last map I have been working on. I planned to have random events happenings at the small villages you found here and there, but I never got to that point, so it was just one big map sadly..
And yes, the suicide pill was the only way out there: I never had time to finish that map either(it would have taken way too much time, so I figured to finish other stuff haha..). In the final version, You'll be able to talk on the black stuff as well. Forgot to change that to passable, but in the end, that didn't matter anyways.
Again, thank you for your review, it's super helpful! I will continue with this project, I have to. I promised I'd finish it, so I will :)
