Progress on Explorers of Alpha

On twitter by @EoAlpha_off

Progress update about Alpha:

Finished Special Episodes re-revamp (still have a game mode to do). Added two game segments: one is a small new segment, Split-Decision Aegis Cave, where you get a new boss gimmick during story (and no, you don't need stones to proceed in Alpha)


Gen V Sturdy goes brrrrrrr

Thanks End for the help during the development and Irdkwia for the extra needed information about Sturdy 👀

Soulless disqualified

Hi! We, the mods and the jury, have decided to disqualify the hack The Soulless Life from the hack jam.

After a period of consideration we determined the hack is in violation of Rule 6. When submitting hacks, please make sure they don't violate any of our rules and please don't try to push the rules.

Because of this, if you voted for the hack, please change your vote now. The hack will also not be listed in our hack list anymore.
