I wouldn’t worry about that too much; the same could be said for any artist who shares their work, to varying degrees of self-awareness. Otherwise they would just keep it to themselves.
FTL and DotE both have tactical pause, so even though there are keyboard shortcuts I just end up using the mouse. Both become much much harder if you forget to use tactical pause, though! The other thing that keeps sucking me into these games is that they’re relatively short. There’s something appealing about knowing you can have a complete playthrough in 1-2 days.
Reference image next to the pixel art: ta-da, it’s a philosopher’s stone! Fun fact: I found that chunk of glass in a toxic waste dump behind an abandoned glass factory (most dopants used to color glasses are quite poisonous). But do not get me started on wizards, I’ve written treatises on magic systems every bit as detailed and dry as an introduction to chemistry.
Thanks, I’m glad you like the font! I would describe it as a descendant of Textura Quadrata, with some personal touches. Using it for various wizardly projects. If you want to use it, you can download the font from my fontstruct page. Just be sure to activate kerning in your text processor of choice or it won’t look right.
