Welcome, stranger, to the Bazaar. A place of infinite wonders and worthless knick-knacks, where anything can be bought, sold, or traded - for the right price, of course.

We understand that today you're looking for a new plant, and you have brought with you a mirror to trade. 

Good luck.

Cool Game!  I really like the art.

Thank you! I'm very new at pixel art, so I'm super glad it worked for you

Awesome!

Thank you so much !

I also wanted to ask, how did you make it that the npc's give you items?

(+1)

Well! to start with, the "items" being traded were just variables. the merchants' dialogue was set up as a conditional dialogue, so depending on the count of certain variables they'd say different things. then, when they were supposed to give you an item, I used {VariableName = 1} to set VariableName to 1 - ie: to "give" you VariableName. This variable was then used in a different merchant's dialogue, and so on.

Ahh okay, so variables. I'll have to look into that, thanks.

no worries! hit me up if you want a hand with them

The Bazaar had plenty of worthy baubles, but this clear explanation was  absolutely priceless.

I'm just getting started with Bitsy and I was figuring out the variable elements mostly by trial and error.

This one comment saved me lots of guesswork and helped me finish my game in time for the Bitsy Jam deadline this month. 

Thank you so much! Really grateful for the help.

Wow, thank you so much for this comment! I'm super glad that this blog was able to help you work out stuff for your game :)
