This game makes me happy! Thanks for making it!
It had an enjoyable vibe and cool world that sorta reminded me of StarTropics...and some neat puzzles!
I like that you kept it ambiguous what your original form was, it keeps the overall metaphor of the game really strong: You are what you choose to be!
I found 7 gems on my own, so I'm glad I saw the hint.txt to get to the endgame stuff. You really went the extra mile in terms of completeness.
Though if you make a sequel, please make a seperate transmute selection screen! The scrolling was a tiny annoyance, but actually became a mechanic with the 2 duels, becoming like a memory challenge (which was cool but not esp worth the annoyance imo haha).
Keep making games!
