Thanks for playing Jmation! I think it maybe wasn't clear enough where to go at that point!! I've just pushed a small update as it looks like there was a game breaking bug around there you may have run into also.
If you'd like to give it another go I've made you a little map of the forest https://i.imgur.com/6DcEJTS.png
There's a lot more content past that point, it would be a shame to miss it. Here's the full world map https://i.imgur.com/4SO07sN.jpg
That image is a sneak peak into a GameBoy RPG maker I've been working on for a while now, this was the first real test making something with it!
Also your game looks really cool btw, love the art style!
