New screen's looking lovely, just like the earlier ones. Also, I just finished Emma Fell Down a Well yesterday night (it took me ridiculously long because apparently I don't know how to find my way around in KS levels anymore; I honestly don't think it was the level design's fault, I think something in my brain is a little broken/too old now. I'm getting lost in every moderately large level.) and it's a great level, some reallllly nicely designed screens there.

Also glad to hear you're doing better!

Sunday update!

Since last update: 9 screens
Current screencount: 110/290 -- 37.9% (+3.1%)

Quite happy to have maintained a reasonable progress despite vacation being over. I've been working only on the red area from last weeks screenshot, so I'm attaching a screenshot from another section I haven't shared before.

The screenshots remind me of my unfinished level Thee Fault.
Part of the description checks out, somehow: "I started this level about 4 months ago", "I'm about 100 screens in."
That's a crazy coincidence. :O

In Thee Fault, I try to "pretend I'm Nifflas" to use his tilesets in the most "expected" way possible.

I like the fact Whitebow Island is the exact opposite:
You experiment with Nifflas' tilesets and use them in original and unexpected ways :)

Thank you ^^

@Lit Knob: That is quite a coincidence! Sounds like fun, best of luck with it :)

Sunday update!

Since last update: 8 screens
Current screencount: 118/290 -- 40.7% (+2.8%)

Starting to get a bit uninspired and tired of the areas I'm working on. This has happened a few times before, the way to fix it for me is to solve a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle and then return with new eyes. So I might do that next week (then no update), though I do feel some inspiration to expand the first "dungeon" (only 4 screens right now). I'm attaching a screenshot of it, and I really like how that particular screen ended up.
Thank you all again for the encouragement by the way, I feel like I've made great progress these weeks whereas I usually take these breaks more often. It's quite motivating to know that I'm making the level for someone other than just myself :)

Screen looks great! You're doing an amazing job with the default tilesets. :D

Sunday update!

Since last update: 3 screens
Current screencount: 121/290 -- 41.7% (+1%)

That was one rough jigsaw puzzle...
I got back to the level this weekend and managed to finish off the first pass of the blue area (2nd screenshot) which I'm really happy with. The final two screens there were tricky to design and I had held off on them for a while. I'll attach a screenshot of the exit of the first pass of that area which is a screen I was quite pleased with.
Hopefully I can get back to the progress I was making before in the coming weeks.
