Weekly Roundup

Welcome to the very first proper Weekly Roundup, where we take a look at everything that’s happened on Grynn’s Fairy Tales over the past week!

Tales of Ostlea

Last week the Frost Jackal was released, a new winter seasonal creature to be found in Sunanie Glacier. This week saw the end of the mass-drop for this new creature, on Tuesday. The Glacier is now once again filled with other creatures as well, and the Jackal can be fed.

On Wednesday, a small bug involving the Frankincense potion was fixed. It’s unclear when this bug reared its ugly head as the item worked as intended before, but whenever it was: it’s gone now!

On Saturday a few small site improvements were implemented. First off, creatures which are for sale now show a small “(for sale)” text to the owner, to easily see which ones are for sale.
Adult creatures now have a “Finalize” button, which means potions etc. can’t be used on them anymore.
Lairs can be locked now, meaning no new creatures can be moved into it, and creatures in it can’t be moved out of it.

First we’re going to have a look at the basics of pixel lines, and then we’ll apply what we’ve learned to the sketch we prepared in the previous lesson! Straight lines Let’s revisit the definition of pixel art for a moment: an artwork in which every single pixel was placed with an express purpose in mind. Knowing that, it follows that making … Continue reading
