I didn't expect this game to resonate with me like it did, but I really enjoyed it. There are wind turbines in the mountains near where I grew up in Vermont, and I could always see them when we drove to school in the mornings, on the horizon. Now I'm very far away from there, but I'm in a place where there are still wind turbines (New Brunswick, near Nova Scotia). It's an odd connection, but nice in this context. Thank you for making this!

Thank you Tyson! Glad you enjoyed it!!

Did it glitch at the same place, or was it under different circumstances this time?

I'm glad you're enjoying it, and I'm sorry that you ultimately restarted! Thank you for giving it that second chance though! I'll have a look and see if I can sort out that bug, too, just for the future. Let me know if anything else funky happens!

That is unfortunate! Is that the extent of the glitching? Also, did you unpack the game executable from the .zip file it was in/did you put the game down and come back to it afterwards? That can affect save data sometimes.

Thank you! I'm glad you like them!!

Welp! I'm sorry about that! No idea what could be causing those issues! I'll have a look and see if I can do anything to help remedy the situation on my end. My best guess is that the file that deals with certain objects respawning/not respawning in game got deleted/corrupted somehow. 


As for the SPACE/transform idea, I'll consider it! I thought that SPACE also did something if you moused over an object with an action that wasn't transform selected, but I guess that's not the case! Hopefully the issues haven't ruined the game for you, and again, I'm sorry that this has happened!

[If hide tags were available, they'd start here]

If it's the one inside the Spire (purple area) it's probably not the Monolith, because as far as I can tell, the shadow can't be the Monolith. However, yes, it should be a form that you already have, that was required for you to get to that point. All you should have to do is approach the shadow with the right form and it'll open the path. My best guess is to try either the Mirror form, or the Egg form.

Let me know if this helps!

Noted! Might be something with how the blocks despawn. I'll look into it.

No, it should definitely be in the Marsh! Or, the place to obtain them, anyway. It's a bit more in-depth than just picking them up. Check the South-West portion of the area, particularly looking for the Mushroom Cobbler.

Thank you for the kinda words btw! I'm so glad you've been enjoying my game!

Huh. That's weird! No idea what's up with that. If you'd like to go back through the intro/tutorial bit again, open up the game's files (should be in local appdata, look for "Transmute Deluxe"), go into the Options.ini file (you can open it up with notepad or a text editor), and look for the Respawn option. Then, set the x value to 1408, and the y value to 384. If you save that, and then reopen the game, you should start back at the very beginning (but with no forms lost) so you can re-open the puzzles as necessary. Hope this helps a bit!

No, you'll need to find a way to combine them! Like a cauldron, for instance!

I would say yes, you do save everyone, though it's left sort of ambiguous isn't it? I'm you enjoyed the game, by the way! I'd recommend Transmute next (since it's sort of linked to this one).

Congrats!! Never thought people would try to speedrun my games! I think my best time is just under half an hour, but since I've never recorded it, I do think you have the record for now! Well done!

I'm glad you're enjoying it!! Thanks for reaching out!

Monster town is south from the Herb Garden! Follow the river down from that room and you'll end up in a place called the Shroomish Marsh. After that, go east, and you'll get to Monster Town! Hope this helps!

So glad you enjoyed it!

Huh. That's a new one! I'll look into that. Glad you enjoyed, and congrats on the ending!! It's meant to be difficult, but it seems like you figured it out in the end!

Love this!! I had one instance where the boss door opened when I'd only input three of the locks, and there were some moments where I got a bit stuck in the text, but otherwise very very fun!! I even found some secret bits!

Glad to hear you enjoyed it, and that you got 100%! Congrats!

Also, I just did a little bugfixing, so if you want to download the latest version of the game and boot it up, you should be able to transform out of that situation now, even without going into your files!

I can help! You'll have to find the game's files though. It'll probably be in your program files/local appdata, and it should be called "Transmute_Deluxe2." Once you find the file, open it up and open "Options.ini" in a text editing program. Notepad works just fine for this. Look for the option labelled "[Respawn]" and add about 16 to whatever the y value is. Then, save the document, reopen the game, and you should be in the clear! So so sorry that this happened, and I hope this helps!

Hopefully this works for submitting Polymute! I was thinking of putting it up for sale anyway to support various bail funds, but I feel like this might be a better alternative to that!

I know about the double boss bug, but I have no idea how to replicate it so it's still in there. I will try to fix the moving around bug though! That's not supposed to happen, ideally. But, on the bright side, I've now tested my fix for the forms issue and it seems to have been dealt with! Thank you for bringing it to my attention!

Okay! I have figured it out, maybe! Did you examine yourself to get the Wizard form? If so, that may be what's caused this. Basically, what happened with Ghast's run was that the game didn't update what forms had been collected until the game restarted, and I thought I had fixed that, but I may not have fixed it if you examine yourself. Also, did you do the game in one continuous playthrough, or did you pause and reload the save?

Wait no, I thought I fixed this! You're playing on the latest version of the game I assume?

Huh, that is weird. I hadn't realized that was a thing! Guess I'll go check that out!

First off, congrats on the completion! The curious pawn is a small hint about where to get the Fish form/figure out the third guard's riddle in the Zoo, so not a red herring, but maybe not related to what you were thinking! If you're looking for the final form, I think you missed a specific secret one. Try going back to the Lookout Point at the very beginning!

There are multiple endings, yes! And that is certainly a step to getting one of them, though I won't spoil the exact process!

Thanks so much! I'll bear the form tooltip idea in mind if I ever get around to updating the game again!

Again, you're on the right track, but you may be relying on the wrong hints. Try looking around in Monster Town and the Dragon's Lair. There may be something helpful there if you can find it. Also, sorry about the bug and then restarting! I think I have an idea what might have caused you to get stuck, but I'm not 100% sure. Guess I'll have to look around!

I can't say if you're doing it wrong or not without knowing what you've been doing, but it seems like you're on the right track? If in doubt, look for hints in one game that correspond to things in the other. That may get you on your way.

Well, the Moon Pool unlocks once you complete the Bestiary (I think) though it's honestly just a dev room. As for the golden wand, that's a big ol' secret, so I don't know how much I want to share. I will say, though, that the clues to start you on your way are in places you've presumably already been, and you'll have to think outside the box (or be lucky) to reach your end goal.

I'll consider it, sure! May not add them for a bit, but I'll see what I can do

If you have the eye-shaped gem, your next goal should be finding a way to upgrade it. See if you can find someone in Monster Town to help. You'll need the ability to fly though!

Unfortunately I don't think so; that's just sort of how Bitsy games are I'm afraid.

You should only get robbed once in the catacombs, when you're going in, which takes away your ability to transform until later on when you get it back. I don't know if that's what happened for you, but you shouldn't be being robbed again when you leave the area. Regardless, glad you've enjoyed it!

Also, if you want to post screenshots or anything to help me figure out why you might be having those issues, I'd be happy to see what I can do!

Huh. That's... ...Not supposed to happen. Why couldn't you get out of the catacombs?
