Here’s a little something that I concocted for my April Alchemy game, The Alchemist of Dunvale. It’s not a very artistic map (although I’m searching for an artist to draw a nice one for the final version of the game), but it’s a useful spatial representation of the area pertinent to the game.

I’m hosting a game jam from April 1-30 over on itch.io for anyone who wants to participate. The theme is “alchemy”, which is open wide to all sorts of interpretation. All submissions will be freely available for download by the end of the jam, and there’s no competition: it’s an exercise is simply creating for the enjoyment of creating. Come sign up!

We’re easy enough to locate: https://parenthesispress.itch.io/

Come get some games!
