In the real world (Trujon), Mina is in a coma as her soul has been taken by Darkrai. However, with the help of Cresselia, her soul has infused with Darkrai's own in a desperate attempt to save herself. Once Darkrai is defeated in Inoue, the credits roll and Mina wakes up out of her coma, free to explore the Trujon region.
Many of my followers ask me when the next release of Mint will be...
I'm sorry to say, but there will not be another release of Mint Fantasy...Atleast not for PC. Unfortunately, Essentials has become so DS-oriented it is almost impossible to downgrade the battle system completely. This huge problem has made development near impossible. Going back to a version old enough to work with is out of the question too, as porting over bug fixes is nearly just as difficult.
However, do not despair! Mint will be ported to the gameboy color, eventually. I am patiently waiting on news on whether porting some features to Gold such as diagonal movement is possible. The moment these features are added via asm I will gladly work on it again.
Now, as of right now I am indeed ROM Hacking. I am actively working on a PHO project as well as Ancient Platinum with Mateo. The results and planning of these projects are very promising and I hope to share some media with you all soon.
To the present, and the future,
If you'd like to play a beta of the game, here is a demo of Ice Plateau, without battling. The ice puzzles are pretty fun, the first two are extremely hard based on my beta testers' feedback.
