A Ripple, Returning
A short story of bats and echoes.
Originally made for Bitsy Jam 29 (Echo), but was terribly, terribly late. Whoops!
Thanks for playing!

Love the looks of this and I find it's pretty original. Also the nature theme and the game taking place at night really appeal to me.
Did you make these levels just by using tiles?
Thank you so much! I've always had a soft spot for bats, thought echolocation was rad, and night usually makes me thoughtful, so that kinda swirled around in my head to make this.
Also yeah, the environments are all tile-based! The trees are made with a handful of rectangles, and the other features are as minimal and reusable as I could make 'em. When echolocating, it sneakily brings you to a duplicate of the map, with filled-in versions of the tiles, and makes the moths a visible color. Some hacks were involved in exiting between maps, but it's mostly vanilla Bitsy!
I get it. Bats are, indeed, pretty awesome and the night makes me thoughtful too.
Cool to hear about how you made the room and to learn about your hacks. I am still very much of a beginner here, so I dont even know what vanilla Bitsy means ( I guess it means basic - without any hacks )
P.S. Have you ever considered changing your username to moonbat? ;>)
very neat concept and great execution !
