Need a screen recorder

Okay, it turns out that I need a good screen recorder to start showing off some of the dynamic things in the game - it's kind of hard to show animation in pictures.
So in the meantime, I guess I'll have to show off some of the things that don't need to be seen with their animated effects.

As I mentioned I have the item system mostly done. When an item is received it is shown, rotating on the screen like this:
A "Small Key" received from a chest.
Items can be received from anywhere: chests, people, stores containers...

Next we have a floor-switch. A floor-switch is a switch that is activated when jumped on. These switches have their own event handlers so they can be programmed to do anything!

If you look up in the top of this picture you'll see the compass, which was added to aid navigation to destinations and quests.

Hopefully when I find an free or open source screen recorder, I can start uploading videos of all of the cool components working.
