Epilogue v2.1 has been released!
I have elected to upgrade the .X digit in the version number as there really have been a significant number of additions to the game since 2.0, including additional content, user-requested features, interface improvements, graphical changes, etc. The most recent changes are listed below, as well as a couple screenshots. Enjoy!

Added the line “Carrying a special item” to enemies with special items (keys, rings)
