I plan to closing down the web version of Triglav since IE is about to shutdown.
We had to force run this game on IE, the newest web browser at the time, so it had to be cut out of the elements that normal games would not have to cut out. There are few frames for characters, very small number of item slots, no sound effects, and rough judging of hits, etc.
None of these things were what the developer wanted, and none of them were possible due to the limitations of the platform at the time. Now, however, I think these limitations have become a major feature of the game. It's because the range of expression has narrow so much that it has become easier to create the game with a clearer picture of what can be done. I now believe that limitations are not always a bad thing.

Mobile games, like web games, are also full of limitations.
In the mobile version of Triglav, some elements that were difficult to realize in the web version have been added. There are sound effects and music, various visual effects, and more accurate judging of hits, etc.
However, there are some things that we did not dare to change from the web version. There are very small number of item slots, the risk of losing the character if you die, and the use of all the rough dot pictures as they are.
These elements, especially the small number of item slots and the death loss, made a lot of criticism from new players, especially from the mobile version, but I am still right that we carried them over. If we wouldn't, the game of Triglav would have been lost.
We are grateful that this game has lasted for 20 years. Thank you so much.
