Roundbound: Gaining for a Goddess [v4.2]

It’s really been awhile but I’m back here with another progress update. A decent bit has happened since the last Dev update and I just wanted to share a few things!

  • Sandsun City is nearly done! I just need to finish the bad ending for the area’s boss and I’m nearly done with the new town. The town has a ton of vendors, fat related sidequests, and I’m thinking of putting in a Blackjack minigame where your earnings can go to fatten up a Bunny Girl (once this town has it’s minigame we’re set). Essentially, there’s a bunch of really good stuff in this town- easily the best one in the game. But once I get this town done I want to make the last bit a desert dungeon with some extra lore, do some bugtesting, then the update is all done.
  • I went back to some previous areas and touched up a lot of the previous maps, but the new maps and routes in the game are some of the best I’ve made so far. I’m really proud of the Desert Oasis- an area you’ll be exploring pretty early in the new update. The flow of the game going from area to area also feels a lot better in my opinion. Maybe I’ll post some screencaps of these maps in game when the game is closer to release.
  • Finally, I’m starting to tinker with the idea of better fast travel. Currently I’m against the idea of interact with NPC, menu pop up, click option, then warp to location. But if that’s the best option I have for better fast travel then so be it. I also don’t want to make Sierra’s boat irrelevant, but just know I am looking to make the fast travel system better. Maybe in the overworld you can enter the inside of her ship? Maybe you can upgrade her boat to be a flying ship? Just know this is an idea I’m just messing with but have nothing currently planned for.

(I don’t have a good image to post for this update, so here’s a shitpost I made for giggles)

As usual, any artists (traditional art and/or sprite making) feel free to reach out! I can always use some extra hands on board. My discord is " Round #8776 " and feel free to message me if you have any questions, suggestions, or was one of those artists looking to help out. Thanks for being patient, everyone. I hope you all enjoy what I have cooking up.

I still can’t figure out how to do the puzzle door with the code, I am trying to input the right codes, the right letters, everything. but I don’t know exactly how to do it.
