This game is awesome, legend of the river king vibes for days! How small did you squeeze the map in the end?

Thanks! Glad you like it!

I ended up never compressing the map. I’m sure it can be done, maybe using @drummyfish’s new vector approach. But I ultimately decided I’m pretty happy with the game as-is and just decided to move on.

Haha, doh. Whenever you make a release on github they automatically include a zip file of the entire repo, so yeah that zip file has a lot of stuff in it. Ah well.

I dont blame you, something to look into if you ever decide to do something similar with a much bigger map.

Huzzah! :smiley: Loved your idea of a bear running a shop and just ran with it. Let me know if you work on any future fishy games, I’d love to collab :D.

And oh you @bateske, one day, one day!

Haha, wow that’s a first :smiley: I just thought you did a typo due to my username!

Now that’s some high praise right there!
