Those seagull enemies are really cleverly set up! The lighthouse looks great too!

While there hasn't been much game progress to report, I did make one significant move forward with the development of my game... the box art! Much like the old days, I contacted an artist giving him my ideas, a rough sketch, and some pixel art of the primary characters. But unlike some of the box art of old (I'm looking at you, Mega Man 1), he knocked it out of the park! This is only the first mock up, so I expect much of the layout to change, but seeing this makes the game feel so much more real.

In this latest preview, Toby enters the spooky lighthouse. It's dark and creepy, but luckily, no enemies are in there today. But in the completed game, there will bats swarming at Toby. Because every game needs bats! :mrgreen:

There will be a purpose to go to the top of the lighthouse, but that will be something for another time.

HAPPY NES YEAR EVERYONE! (not a typo)

So it's been a couple months since my last update. Partly because work and the holidays have taken their toll on my schedule, and also partly because NESMaker 4.1 has been in development (but very soon to being released as I type this.) But I have been working on other aspects of the game, including the marketing of the game, box art, and refreshed logo.

That brings me to today's reveal. I've just launched "GossipTurtle," a fourth wall breaking social media account that will appear both here in the real world, and in the in-game world of "Turtle Rescue." GossipTurtle is armed with knowledge of all things related to the game, and is here to give both you and the hero game tips, secrets and other news.

Currently, only on Twitter at the address @TurtleRescueNES (I was shocked that there were already Gossip Turtle accounts out there). So if you are on Twitter, please give the account a follow. I'll still post development updates here, but I plan on the Twitter account to be a little more fun, giving you a closer look to the world and story of "Turtle Rescue!" I'll be sure to return the follows as our NESMaker community grows!

Congrats!

How did you create the account? Facebook won't let you have 2 accounts with the same phone number. Or is this a "page" the way one would make a page for a business?

This is a new Twitter account, not a Facebook account. My regular Facebook account won't be a source for updates, though I may "pimp" updates in the NESMaker Facebook group pointing them to the Twitter page. I don't want to be too spammy there, where I feel I can do a little more of that here and on Twitter.
