  • Website showing hosted games(If you have nodody to play with)
  • Ingame chat(Press "C" to open console. Remembers the last three messages sent)
  • Zelda gameplay a lá Minish Cap
  • 10+ items(Not all finished, see "Progress" section)
  • Enemies and NPC's(Work in progress, as well)
  • Level Editor(Not included yet, see "Level Editor" section)
  • XBox 360 Controller support(Needs to be plugged in before the game starts)

Level Editor
The level editor won't be included at first but it is planned and partly implemented.
You will create your own level with Tiled, a common map editor. You can use each tileset you want, but will be limited to these objects:

Of course there will be more objects, but currently there are no more. :P
After the map is done you can convert your map with the help of a tool in a .lvl file. This file is read by Game Maker and you can play with your friends on your own map.
A more detailed explanation how this works will come when I introduce the level editor.
