Yes, it might be a bit big for that...just a bit of size reduction and it would seem to hit a good middle ground versus the screen from before.

Player chatting also going to be on the slab or will they use dialog bubbles?

I already made most of the smaller font. I reduced it by 25% and it seem a lot more readbale now.
I am not sure about player chatting, there are several options. I would like the text to appear near the character because characters have emotes, and if the text is far then people won't notice the emotes.

I had a thought of doing something like Maple story, only the more the player is close to your character the more his chat bubble has a higher visible priority.

A new screenshot. It doesn't show the new font, but it show a new grass tile and some flower bushes tiles.
There is also a playable alpha. There are a few issues with it which I already fixed in newer versions, but the server is compatible with this version.
I will be glad if you just try to run it to see if you connect or not.
You can change Name = Sargon to some other (sane) nick name. Not to long and no weird characters.
Also, remember to extract zip before running.

Some pixel art I made I am very proud of. :)
It's for the title screen.



Here is the in-game sprite.



A few "clarifications" after replies I got. He is looking down, the yellow thing in his eyes are his eye lids. His eyes are closed or at least partially closed. Also, he is not short, his portrait is just cut in the middle. That is why there is no black outline at the bottom.

That's great! To fix any mis-perceptions, I suggest adding hair hanging down out of his hood to make it more obvious that he is looking down (if the character is supposed to have any hair). Also, I think it might look good if you made the bottom of him fade out.

Just some suggestions, but otherwise good work.

Good suggestions. I am actually "collecting" suggestions, and after I let it rest in my subconciouss for a while, I will get back to this and fix it.
Insted of fading, I thought of doing sort of dithering and patches that become more and more smaller. Kind of dissappearing but without blending.

Here is a new pixel art.
It's an old evil cultist man. He has a very important role in the game.
