I thought the daily gift giving and talking system was going to be tricky... its been a breeze! So far its very much like Stardew Valleys gift giving and daily talking system but will be much more complex and subtle in terms of what people like/dislike, etc.
I highly recommend getting as many people to play test your demo as possible.
1) They try things you never think of trying.
2)Testers come with a fresh pair of eyes and an empty slate. They will catch the things you take for granted, this is especially true for story elements.
3) They can provide fresh ideas.
4) and much more!
Thankfully I have seen an huge increase of testers for me, allowing me to catch and fix many bugs... ah! They are everywhere!

Fekken kill me. I unknowingly swapped out two important events's codes and saved the game to test it. I'm just doing this for fun and the fun has now been replaced with excruciating torture.
Is this how game developers feel all the time?
WAIT HOLY S***
MY LAST POST ASKING FOR HELP ON AN EVENT ACTUALLY SAVED IT
OH MY GOD
