Hey, I remember playing Talesworth Arena a couple years ago and it was really the first Kong game ever played through. Im seriously wondering at this point if you are considering making another talesworth arena game, and if so, will there be some sort of character creation system or something to a degree? If even like super basic like picking the c…

I started on one, but ended up bailing on it. I was adding a movement element to incorporate exploration. A sequel is never off the table, but it’s not a current project.

Truly a great game. You’ve got a gift for striking that perfect balance between pitifully easy, and difficult to be a challenge without being frustrating. I find myself coming back every couple of years to have a run through it again.

After “mastering” the game, I found myself wishing there was a hard mode; then I realized there a…

I laid out all the combat mechanics. Balancing the game for all 3 classes was very difficult. It made me truly appreciate other games out there doing it for 10+ classes. You’re right, there i…

You are an amazing developer/game designer and programmer! My favorite by far is Talesworth Arena: Death Watch. You should definitely consider making a 2nd one when you have the time! Thanks, and keep up the awesome work! -Your fan, ZzAlexzZ

Hey MrJinx, great work on the Talesworth Adventure series! About the Lost Artifacts game, I know it’s difficult for the developer to find out how many rooms are platinum-able, so… what about making the “Paragon Path” achievement pass to Kongregate hogh scores the number of rooms that player got Platinum instead of just 0 or …

Questy is quite eccentric. He’ll charge straight into a monster, even whilst ill-equipped, to get a loot bag, while a gem that’s just one foot to his side? Not worth it.

Just played through Talesworth Adventure 1 for the second time (first was about a year ago on NG). Loved it then and I love it now. Can’t wait for the next one. Keep up the good work.

Well like I said, I use NG every day. When it comes to design, format and colors I do prefer NG. But games wise, it’s Kong all the way.

What’s the in-stage song from Talesworth Adventure: The Lost Artifacts called? I’ve heard it in other flash games before and love it.

Can’t remember the name, but it’s by Brian Crutchfield. You can find him, and this song, on Audio Jungle.

Playing through Talesworth Adventure: The Lost Artifacts and on the level “Whelps Have Wings” (3rd in the caves line) I found a solution that leaves 3 coins and one-way blocks (as well as 2 bits of meat). This is 1 coin and 1 one-way better than the “gold” solution. It also relies on going through the blue door twice just as…
