Thanks for playing! Tbh I never really thought of the characters as tapeworms, but I guess they do kinda look them :P

Hey thanks for playing my game! The full release is on hold for now, as I need to think of things that would make the game better rather than just making the game bigger.
I'm also glad you liked the color scheme. It was definitely a style choice and most certainly not because art is hard :P
I thought my little Bitsy dialogue thing was interesting but this is actually amazing that you were able to an actual RPG-style game in Bitsy!
It's also pretty fun, kinda like old flash games that I used to play on Kongregate.
I made this game for a game jam, so I rushed to finish this game. It took about 1.5 days for me to finish, because I joined late.
For someone's first game, I think a small platformer wouldn't be too difficult, especially with all the tutorials that exist. I'd recommend finding a tutorial for whatever type of game you want to make, following that tutorial, and then adding your own ideas on top of that once you've finished the tutorial.
For example in this game, I built upon a basic platformer tutorial (you can see my first attempt at a platformer here). I optimized the code, added enemy/npc interactions, created the typewriter-like text, and added lighting effects. Future games I make will be able to use these features as well, now that I've done it once.
The most important part is finishing something. I've tried making many games in the past but never ended up finishing anything until I decided to create something for a game jam.
