Thanks for the feedbacks!
I'm very impressed by the Next Penelope.
Your game actually encouraged me to keep on going with Construct 2.
I still haven't put videos on youtube, because I didn't have the time yet
I decided to communicate about the game just very recently. But I will post video on youtube asap.
I spent 3 months on the prototype, now.
The player will have all freedom to make an ugly branche if he wants . But the player will also have to explore the world horizontally. The talking tree will serve as a NPC to tell the player where the interesting places to explore are. The talking tree is more or less a quest giver. Fruits and flowers are part of the plan, each of them will provide upgrade or power-up items. The idea is to link the player skill tree, with the level design. The skill tree will be actually a tree.
