made an itch.io account just to say this is fantastic! I'm still very early in learning how to make stuff with Pico 8, and I really appreciate stuff like this. Small touches like changing the character's appearance from inventory changes are really good

also the bow is OP & I love it

Hi! thanks for playing and creating account to comment :D

I too like the bow, but for small enemies, othing beats a big sword for the bosses!

Input seems broken AF.
