Love this, it feels very affectionately crafted. The story also actually gets pretty interesting later on. But I'm so frustrated that I can't figure out the last few things in the game. Could you please drop a hint on where to find the magic boots? What's the Lace Root for? And what's going on in the crystal cairn, because I have the crown and wand, yet nothing happens. These things keep me up at night.

Thank you for the kind words! The Magic Boots can be found near the Shroomish Marsh. Look around very carefully! The Lace Root will come after that, as you may discover. Also, if you have the crown, then the Crystal Cairn is done; you'll get something special when you finish the game though. Also, out of curiosity, did you find the Gold Wand, or the just the Transformation Wand?
Thanks for the help, I found the boots . Though now that you mention it, I only have the basic wand and there are still a few hints scattered in the game, which I haven't used: 1. "Go east in the Starlit Observatory." 2. "Go west path both hammer and sentry". Also, as I understand it, if I enter the final maze with the wand, something will happen? Aaah, I feel like I'm so close to solving it
You're on the right track, but you may need to think outside the box to figure it out!
Did it, wow that's tricky. And tbh I never would've figured it out, if you hadn't mentioned somewhere, where to look (can't remember, where I read that). It's kind of unreasonable, but then again it's not like the player's enjoyment depends on whether or not they can solve this ultimate puzzle. So yeah, loved the game. 5/5 and I look forward to your next project :)
I think I got stuck. I got stuck on the shore in boat form and now I don't think I have a way of getting out of this position. Any advice?
Oh jeez, that's an oversight on my end. I'll fix that asap!
Okay, I've pushed a quick hotfix update; if you download it, you should be able to get out of that jam. If you still can't, let me know!
Looks to be a very fun puzzle game. I suspect I'll have trouble with the word puzzles, but it looks like a great challenge.
You may want to consider adding a way to access the Form Menu with the mouse. Either make the toolbar clickable, or map the middle mouse button to it. Then the game would be playable with only the mouse. (I ended up mapping a mouse button to Tab using AutoHotKey, it works really well.)
Such a cute, retro-influenced game!! The characters have a lot of charm, and it's really calming to play
just need to find one more emerald tablet...!
I'm enjoying this a lot so far! The puzzles / transforming mechanics are really clever and the art & dialog are lovely. Can't wait to keep playing.
I beat it! This game is really solid - there's an amazing amount of narrative & puzzle content (a lot more than I expected, honestly) and it all comes together so well. Beautifully done. Here's my playthrough:
