@basxto Oh nice, the 4 directions are perfect! Here's a wiki for graphics including the color palette gitlab.com/voadi/voadi/wikis/c

We can help with portraits anyway, there is still a backlog of portraits to do. Thanks for your contribution!

@basxto That snake looks nice! VOADI doesn't have a snake yet, but adding a new animal type means also creating 4 directions of sprite (facing up, down, left, and right) as well as a 32x32px portrait of their face to show beside the dialog box. (It also has to match the game's color palette.) If you get around to adding more directions I could probably include it in the swamp area of the game. 😄

@basxto I own two of them, they're awesome little systems. I've definitely considered it, but it wouldn't work for a colorful game like VOADI. Maybe someday I'll make something else specifically designed for Arduboy.

@basxto In all seriousness, RetroPie has some noncommercial emulators so I can't sell a VeganBoy. I can do a giveaway though, which is something on my radar. 🙂

The Pi itself isn't FSF-approved either due to proprietary blobs. I'm hoping to find a more FOSS way to distribute VOADI on physical hardware. The demand for such a thing is pretty small, but would be awesome nonetheless.

@basxto Just saw these, thank you! Neperforto is my favorite of the suggested. 😄

Happy birthday to VOADI! It's been 1 year since starting development. Here's a very early screenshot of the game. Things have gotten much better. 😄
