FAQ
1. Who is @Mars ?

He worked on this game as well! He designed the female protagonist for the game, and the game was somewhat of a collaborative effort with him.

2. Woah! Those are really cool remixes!!1!! Can I use them in my game/animation/social media?!?!?!?!?

You sure can! You can also use the graphical resources created for the game as well! Download them here! Just remember to use your manners and credit me for making music and me and @Mars for making graphics and letting you use them.

3. What are the conditions for submitting my save file for the Jam Connoisseur badge?

In order to qualify your save for the Jam Connoisseur badge, you must save after defeating the 3rd Gym Leader, but before you exit the gym. The game will end and you will have to fight the 3rd Gym Leader again if you don't. You can also check the Game Jam results thread to see the conditions for submitting your save file for this game, as well as the other 3 winners.

4. My game crashed when I did [x]/tried to do [y] help me!!!

Please report any bugs or errors in this thread and they will be considered for revision in a future release. We tried to catch as many as we could before the Jam's deadline, but even then we missed a few and patched them up. Marigold is not at the forefront of my priorities in Game Development right now, but if there are lots of bugs ruining people's experiences, I'll patch it up and release a new version. Save often so you don't lose progress because of a silly error I made.

5. [x] trainer is too hard! I can't win!

See Answer 4. Additionally, I strongly recommend spending some time grinding and collecting TMs. The will help. Youngster Joey seems to be the trainer I hear the most complaints about, but you can skip battling him entirely. The game is meant to be challenging, but it shouldn't be too frustrating.

Currently Known Bugs
There are none that I am aware of at the time of writing this. Nothing is perfect though, so if something's escaped me, let me know!

Mars and I appreciate your continuous support of Marigold here on Relic Castle! Please enjoy this small, yet refreshing experience. Post about your experiences playing the game, we love reading your comments!

I stated in the thread that this was a joint effort with @Mars. It was just 2 people, pretty much.

Either way, I appreciate the feedback and hope you guys give it a play.

We took the entirety of the Game Jam, so basically a month and a half-ish, and we had a few days to spare.

I played this recently and managed to beat it in almost exactly 2 hours. It was a fun time, I liked how it was open-ended and allowed you to choose whichever Gym you wanted to face first. I went in the order of Water->Grass->Fire because I had assembled a pretty powerful team and wanted to have a bit more challenge.

My endgame team was...

(as you can see the Fire Gym leader nearly rekt me, it took numerous tries to defeat him xD)


The only thing that I would change was that the ending felt rather abrupt... it would have been nice to have an area that opened up after beating all 3 Gyms-- maybe a dungeon in the ruins? Also it would be neat to have a final battle against Guile Sterwin himself. But, I understand that in the interest of getting the game done in time for the deadline, that wasn't something you could do. Still, it's a fun game with a lot of polish. Great work!

This game looks boring you should make more pokemon for it so it is not the same pokemon teams basically for everyone.

But apart from that you have used custom tiles a thing very few people done

Hope you take this advice in mind if you ever update it.
