This is a really cool project overall but there is so much feature bloat.
  • There are a few design choices that seem more "filler" than substance - like the crafting system/skill system - all of the prerequisites and item hoarding just seems like a lot, especially right out of the gate. When it comes to implemented systems you really want to ease your player into them rather than throwing a lot at them all at once.
  • Your UI is rather intrusive - and you have images all over the screen. I'd suggest making them a tad smaller and having them all aligned in the same area.
  • I killed a cat by accident which made me laugh - but then I continued to slaughter the whole village of animals- which was also...very funny. Thank you for that. The girl crying about her pet made me laugh especially hard.
I think this has so much potential, but right now I think you need to assess what you really need in your game - and look at how a player whose new to your game would adjust to it's style.

Hello Jake,

Thanks for the great feedback! This is exactly what I need to hear moving forward to make the game better and better.

1) I am definitely looking into easing the player into the game, that is an issue I will resolve in due time but one I am very aware of.

2) Great point! It will be done. Thanks, smaller buttons etc would be awesome!

3) Did you slaughter enough chicken? lol Anything interesting happen? Talk to grandma. Gordo and Shin are also quite fond of each other. ;0)

4) Yes, one(above) is very important and I will work on stream lining the process moving forward. I would also like to mention that this is the first demo in which I implemented a huge game mechanic shift.... I eliminated enemy gold drops (except a very few) in an effort to make the resource collection more integral to gameplay. Keep this is mind since this is first demo with this change, I will work to balance how players earn money in the game, but as it stands, I am afraid it may be a little difficult. I just wanted to give the players a reason to explore, find secrets and farm for materials.... and craft lol.

As far as crafting/resource collection: I know it will be a balancing act but I really want people to enjoy the mining and fishing because it plays such a massive role in Homestead mode. I am actually going to overhaul how mining, fishing, lock picking, and lumber jacking works on the next version of the demo to make it much more player friendly. I wan to continue working and refining the system until its a fun part of the game.

I have a couple of questions for you.
1) How far did you get in the game?
2) Did you try homestead mode? Dating?
3) Have you entered the infinity dungeon?
4) What do you think of the time/light/weather system.

Again, thanks for the compliments and the feedback, it is greatly appreciated.

PS learning the skill "talk to animals" makes the game much more funny and interesting.

Hi,
Where do I report bugs? Is it okay here?
Because I have encountered a homestead bug. I planted some crops, went to check the livestock and bought two chickens and a cow. Then I went back to the crops and noticed two were under attack from bugs. I cleared one, but couldn't clear the second one. So I went to check other locations, checked cat and dog, took dog with me and after looking at what I could upgrade, I just checked, no upgrades done. But when I returned, my sixth "plant bowl" was invisible and I couldn't move, like an autostart event would be blocking me from doing anything.

How do I do it that everytime I jump to a game I never tried, I immediately encounter a bug :D

Hello @Poryg ,

Thanks so much for reporting the bug, in the last build I did change how the game handles a few things and apparently I broke it! lol. I will look into it and fix it ASAP! Reporting here is fine. You can still try to give homestead a try to isolate why it behaves that way if you like lol or you can just enjoy the story until I fix the homestead crop bug. Crops and livestock are the most complex mechanics in the game. Thats great, if you can help me clear all the bugs, you would be a very valuable play tester indeed! ok then I will get to work. Enjoy the RPG.

New sprites and tilesets are awesome, also love the latest intro. New Gordo sprite needs to be fatter. If I had one minor criticism its that the standard rtp styled enemies clash with your new battlers. Hope you get new battlers for them all.

Thanks, I will continue to update the graphics in the coming weeks. I have ALOT more in store including a brand new Killer Gin UI.

It seems you have been following my game long enough to notice the updates, you love the new intro? Once you get to play some more I would love to hear what you like and don't like. The game will make its way to STEAM and your input would be invaluable.

Thanks again, I appreciate it.

Sorry, I just wanted to let ya know I updated the game!

I had a small bug with battle time calculation, had to be fixed so I fixed it. Corrects the passage of time with the RPG and homestead, all battles move time forward now.

While I was at it, I corrected the battle graphics in the beginning of the game lol. Battler sprites updated. No more little criticism lol. yay!

Can't wait to hear more from ya.

The game is huge and well worth a play through. I'd recommend everyone play it just to see the sheer scope of it.

Alberest so far, got a lot done but still ALOT left to do.
Wish I had a better means of taking screenshots...
Map is 148x98

concept: zombie slayer fest.

Lag because of outdated hardware.

Lots todo:
-Terrax lightning should have another step for the flashlight, between up down left right.
-Also Online mv from Nelderson should emit the flashlight from the other player.
-Animation needed for killing the zombie...
Before adding it to #crypchania.
Working on a case. Get all the evidence to prosecute some bad guys. :kaojoy:
But, the game development schedule delayed. :kaoswt2:
The moral of the story: No good deed goes unpunished... I guess...
Except that, nothing to see here. :kaoswt2:
just beat ff7 original for the first time since 2010. having played remake last year, I have a much better appreciation for the original oddly enough. I still like some of the character presentation in remake more, but the original's got a lot going for it.
