I encountered one of my favorite bugs so far when recording the gifs above. Check it out:



Basically, the legs keep doing the cartwheel while the body frees up to do whatever it likes. Not only it looked amazing, it also made me invincible indefinitely. It only stopped when I entered a double-door to another level.

Crrrazy.

I know right? I should have a cheat code for 'stupid mode' or something that makes the animations go nuts.

Thanks!

Today I'll be talking to you about tangerines.





Tangerines are a very fun fruit.

They are also the only thing there is to eat in the Totally Safe Castle.

For this reason, they've become a sort of currency for the adventurers there.

With enough tangerines, you can purchase powerful artifacts, learn secrets, and open up hidden passageways!

You can find tangerines in a lot of places - make sure you do, if you like eating.

They'll usually be in secret rooms, or right at the end of dangerous challenges.

When visiting Totally Safe Castle, people tend to die a lot.

It's okay.

When you die in the castle, two things happen.

1. A tombstone appears. It stays there forever, in memory of yourself.

2. You lose a tangerine. It floats there waiting for you to retrieve it.

You see, so dying is perfectly safe! As long as you don't die again before recovering your Tangerine. Otherwise it's lost forever.

Dying can be very useful, sometimes, as tombstones can be stepped on. You might even die in the same place a few times and make some sort of ladder!
