Dragon Quest Builders 2 Build-All

Yeah, that's the gratitude counter. Go talk to the Captain?

I did again and I can see I can unlock islands now. I wonder what changed earlier. Or if I just got turned around because of the weird order of operations.

Well at least you're free to continue now!

Definitely. Thanks.

After ~90 hours, I finally rolled credits. Damn, that's a lot of game. Now I just need to figure out how much of the post-game freeform stuff I want to do. That might involve sitting with a guide to rooms and building them out, because it seems like they want you to experiment and discover rooms on your own, and no way will I have time to do that.

Up near the waterfall, there's kinda a flat space by where the wood bridge things are... Made some farms, a high-rise apartment building, and the kitchen.

Here, since that description sucked. Sorry for the phone shot of the screen, can't be arsed with exporting.

This is up near the top of the waterfall? Where you start the river?

Yeah, at the base of the waterfall. Right around the point on the newly-created river where there are bits of broken dock. The waterfall is behind my character marker (that little 1 mountain block gap between the larger pool of water and that thin strip in the 2nd shot). The dock things are at 1:00.

Oh cool. I was worried that if I built up there the people wouldn't go up there. The first island had that invisible boundary and I thought that would be outside the boundary.

Yeah, eventually you'll be able to build anywhere you want on the Isle of Awakening. It's great.

I absolutely adore the improvements in this one over the first DQB, but haven't touched it in a few weeks now, because:

Spoiler:

I reached the part of the story where you get thrown in prison, and it's just sapped all the fun out of the game for me. The narrative-heavy bits have been a bit of a chore to get through at times, and this has certainly ramped that up. I think I'm probably halfway through this section, but just haven't had the motivation to power through so I can get back to the fun of building and exploring.

So I'm on Krumbul Dun right now.

I'm not sure if I'll finish this game, but now that I have the hammer that breaks rock I think I'll enjoy spending some casual time terraforming the Isle of Awakening.

The stuff with the bunny costume is super cringe. I'm just getting through it so I can get better tools to build on the Isle of Awakening at this point.
