Bottom-of-the-screen messages are now 20% cooler. It was a little tricky to have them wrap and use their correct colors on the second line, but it’s there.

Just cocking around with yet another working copy. Aside from the length and padding methods not accounting for the width difference, this actually works like a charm.

It’s hard to show in images, but the game now has a new timing system inspired by DoomRL. It’s a pretty significant change, really.
Some more sidebar stuff. Now shows the creature you’re pointing at, including some traits but not their exact health, and the in-game time.
Bigger UI allows messages and status to remain in view without obscuring the map.
PNG mode is back, and this time it’s as fast it can be without using unsafe blocks or extra libraries.
Stole an 8×8 font for experimentation purposes. Tall cells work much better…

I tried writing one before. It didn’t quite work, so I dummied it all out to fix later.
It seems I took too long, because PillowShout made his own. It looks pretty kickin’, but I just came up with another test case…
Update: Yeah okay, I started a new game and pure luck started me on five in the morning. Pillow’s schedule says villagers sleep from midnight to six, give or take half an hour or so. This is what I found ten turns into the game:
