Well hello there! As promised, exactly a week after the first devlog I’ve made a new one. To be honest, I’ve been really enjoying working on YSoD, And I’ve added a ton of new features!.

Let’s go over all the big ones one by one, shall we.

Quest system

As I discussed in my previous devlog, YSoD is supposed to be a fun, rpg-obby mix. And so, I’ve made a demo of a quest system!
note: data does not save yet, as there isn’t really anything to be saved. - quest being taken - quest being completed

Complete lobby revamp

after writing devlog #0, I looked back at the lobby and cringed. I mean come on! It’s a grey block in some random field with barely any decoration, so, I decided to revamp the whole thing.

SoOT and SoR portals and the difficulty chart together

right to left, a windmill, the community zone hut, difficulty chart legend, and the hobbit hole

Pupper therapy room. Take a break from obbies, exploring, whatever and just enjoy the puppies.

Winroom balcony.

A ship with sailors from another realm. They’ve seen many things.

The great mountain river, giving power to all life

The way to SoS’s portal
and much, much more that I couldn’t possibly fit in into 1 devlog.


As you’ve seen in the quest system, I’ve made a main menu! The ui is very basic and doesn’t have a lot of features as of now, but it’s a start!
footnote: teleporting from place to place doesn’t work in studio, that’s why the button doesn’t work, but the logic is done.

list of spires in the game

Spire of Suffering (abbr. SoS)

how to get to portal: walk to the right after spawning and do the parkour to reach the portal.

And that’s it for this devlog!
