oh right yeah! So that’s a combination of some borksy hacks involving sprites and tiles and items having no background, and then the tiles with no background can be made to be layered in front of your avatar. I forget the names of them right now but they’re 2 easy to find hacks on the list of hacks when you go to the borksy tool.
OmGGGG also yeah it’s so weird, I’ve noticed that SOMETIMES the transparent background hack doesn’t work for SOME rooms or objects. But like not on every play through. I have no idea how that’s happening but I appreciate the mystery.
anyway yeah I could do a little walkthrough of my process in more detail sometime. It was both simple and time consuming.
Aw thanks! The colors were a pain but I’m so happy I stuck with them at the end of it all. What do you mean by “forward and backward magic”? I definitely wanna share any part of my process that might be helpful. I learned a loooooot with this game cuz there was a lot I wanted to do that I knew nothing about when I started on it.
Thanks for being kind and encouraging omg!
oh sick that really warms me to hear! Yeah the original text “Bolo’bolo” has a really cool second half (kind of a weird utopian fiction encyclopedia almost) while the first half is sort of dry theory which I’m only partially interested in. The thing as a whole is really fun if you can get through the first half tho! Also flambo and rowdy boy Jim were both last minute additions, like the day I released it was also the same day I added both those characters lol. And of course they’re both my fave. Anyway you’re great, I’m really happy you dug it. <3
This reminded me of this fungus that takes control of ants bodies and makes them climb to a place above the rest of the ants colony where the spores can grow and rain down on the other ants, taking control of their bodies too. it's called Ophiocordyceps unilateralis. anyway, loved this game, made me think about ants etc. <3
This was kind of perfect for me right now. I've been having these exact same kind of conversations in regards to like insecurities with partners and being trans, paranoia about faking people out or being faked out, etc. Yeah, this was amazing, thanks.
