Version 0.12 has been released, which includes all dungeons. It's not final, though, as more content might be added or adjustments be done, but you can now play through the entire game.

Hopefully @Juju can update the arcade version to match the new version.

This project started in late 2008, but went on hiatus from January 2009 to January 2017 approximately.

It looks amazing. Good job, well done :D
Though, you're quite serious with the content warning XD

Thanks, and yeah it's because mostly of the bikini girls and swearing that there is a warning. xd The game was designed as if we were still in the 90's, in terms of people's tolerance about politically-incorrectness or accessibility. (although the 2009 version was worse)

Also I changed the HUD again so that the 6th item slot, which is reserved for special quest items, is the same height as the 5 others.

There are only three key items, but displaying them makes it easier to remember where you were at in your quest.

EDIT I also started translating the game to French, but it will take a long while.


EDIT 2: Note that when the next version will come out, the HUD will appear messed up when loading old save files. Entering a new area and coming back will fix it, though.

The game now checks if the save file that you opened matches the current game version number. If there is a mismatch, then the HUD/UI is refreshed to erase all display glitches, then the game's current version number is stored inside a variable for when you save your game later.
