Hey, glad that you liked it.

Thanks for doing such a sizeable play-though. Unfortunately, I've found that I can't watch LPs of my stuff - for some reason it causes my social anxiety to spike big-time. Obviously, that's not a great quirk to have as a hobby gamedev - but it's entirely a problem with my brain, not the play-through!

Thanks - glad you liked it.

The broken sphere is another one where there isn't much signposting - it's easier to find by accident than design. If you look at the map, on the western side, there's literally a single pixel anomaly to indicate the presence of something.

Thanks for pointing out the typo as well; I blame the cat saying it - cats are notoriously bad spellers. Anyway, I uploaded a fixed version.

Ok, well it's only of use to new players, but I added a clue to a dialog - basically the same hints that I gave above, hopefully enough to put people on the right track.
(And no, it won't save progress - I don't think Bitsy can do that (yet!))

Yeah, the chalice is the hardest object to find, because it was thrown in as an optional extra and isn't really signposted. I should probably update with a clue or two.

But as a hint, the chalice is in the possession of Lord Pixby-Bitsington, an egotistical renegade cat lord, and founder of Meowich. He's currently hiding from the Dread Sorceress, but where would he hide?

Thanks for the lovely comments folks.

I've updated the game to Bitsy 4.3, which means it's now mobile friendly - but please note that it takes forever to load on mobile!

I've also reworded a couple of dialogs that were unintentionally confusing.

Loved it. Really nice art, and I'm a big fan of the avatar/timeline approach. (Trying not to be jealous that the ship-in-a-bottle is prettier than the one in my game!!)

The great hall is just the big viking ship in boat-town - that's not supposed to be a puzzle so I should reword it so it's clear; thanks for pointing that out.

The 3rd beacon was destroyed, but a record of it remains somewhere and the orb is magic. (Also the ruins of the Western Beacon are in the west!, if you're looking for that - there's a clue there.)

Hope that helps.

No toes stepped on! Thanks for pointing this out - I've updated the text accordingly. Cheers.

Thank you!

Sorry - managed to miss this question! As you've probably found out by now, the answer is no, no unicode. But since the Bitsy font is defined in the Bitsy javascript as a simple array, it's easy enough to change what characters look like - the music notes are really just two bits of punctuation that I knew I wasn't going to use with the arrangement of pixels altered to look like notes.

In case it's of any use to anyone, I did a devlog/tutorial on putting Bitsy and Tracery together: bitsy-and-tracery-sitting-in-a-tree
