Thanks a bunch for that feedback. That is definitely something we are considering as we go forward here. Alpha II is out today! https://fifeferisland.itch.io/fialpha2v1webI really dig the hand-painted aesthetic here, it's really nicely done. I'd be really curious to see what the waterfalls and river would look like animated, but I'm assuming these are mock-ups for now.
My biggest point of feedback would be the lack of consistency between the hand-painted backgrounds with the pixelated sprites placed on top. For example, the houses, the pots, the chopped wood, the cut stump and fallen log don't match the same aesthetic as the background. I'm not sure if these are place holders, but it really clashes with the background in my opinion. It also makes me wonder what kind of character art style you'll be going for, but I couldn't see the default styled characters meshing well here either.
The first screenshot with the castle has the most visually cohesive style. That's the style I would go for with the houses as well. Looks good, nice job.
