If you have a copy of GameMaker 8.1 (or GameMaker Studio) and some spare time, The Legend of Syro could use your help!
I have a beta build available of the engine for anyone who has GameMaker 8.1 or GameMaker Studio. From what I hear, GameMaker Studio 2 comes with GameMaker Studio 1, so theoretically GMS2 users should be able to use it as well, but as I don’t have it myself, I can’t confirm that.
If you have access to GM 8.1 or GMS and want to take a look at the project file, shoot me a PM with your version of GameMaker and I’ll send you the link.
Be sure to let Chaoswizard98 know if you’re able to help out!

There’s a new update to Kings of Ember!
DrEthan stopped by the forum with a quick overview of what’s new:
I released a small update on Game Jolt, here is a synopsis.
- Battle walk animations for the enemies
- Settings menu
- Logic in dialogues
The latest version is available from GameJolt for Windows, Mac OS and Linux:
Download Kings of Ember 0.6.1
Quick battle tip: The Brickman is a little tough with the starting sword. There are stronger weapons available from the shop that can be bought once a few enemies have been defeated.

It’s always exciting to see new project updates from The Legend of Syro, and this one is a real treat! There’s a tonne of new features (see the changelog) and lots of polish.
This was a huge quality of life update and much of the core code has been changed. If I could get a few people to test it out, that would be great! As always, let me know if you find any bugs.
This update contains all of Chapter 1, a ‘Control Enemies’ cheat, the 6vs66 challenge map (Good luck! you’re going to need it!), and my Debug Test room which contains some new spells for you to mess with (Quake and Summon). Chapter 1 aside, all other features are accessed via the ‘Options’ portion of the main menu.
If you haven’t tried the game before, I highly recommend giving the demo a thorough playthrough. It’s extremely polished and has a great Shining Force feel to it. As always, be sure to leave some feedback in the forum too.
