I ain't no graphic designer, but I try my best.

The image is from here, recoloured artlessly. The font is this one.

Would it be possible to post a hint system or walkthrough? I've done everything and somehow I'm still not able to enter the orphanage, find a present for the controller, have one bounty left, haven't given away the martian gem and haven't met a molonk, honestly don't know which dialogue I'm missing out on. :P Really great game though, just wish I knew how to complete it.

Hi anon!

Szymon is kind of the game's hint system. You start with him on your crew. When you talk to him, if he keeps mentioning a world, it means there's a hint there for a world you've not been to yet.

The gem will just fetch a fair price if you sell it to a merchant (e.g. Matej).
