This was really cute!! I can't wait for the rest.
Originally built for RainbowJam16, a diversity jam with the theme identity, in my online retro fantasy console the Super Jamicom.
As a kid, I played and loved plenty of action fantasy games in the 16 bit era. While I happily enjoyed those games, I also wished for a few different things: I wished the heroes would be gay guys like me; I wished they'd be set in fantasy worlds that looked more like the lands my people come from; and I really really wished I could make them.
Now that I actually can, this seemed like exactly the right excuse to get started :) Welcome to a little slice of wish fulfillment from my own childhood.
Thank you for your attention!
