What an insanely impressive game! I really loved the atmosphere of the island, the art is fantastic and character looks super nice. I can see so much potential for the gameplay and just from the inspiration I can see it will be really great.

Absolutely awesome game! Great job!

I love the atmosphere you've created! The sound and music support the artstyle, and I enjoyed exploring the island. There was quite a lot of effort put into the island and it really shows. I'm not sure where the theme was incorporated here.  Additionally, I think the action animations were a bit too long for all of the materials you had for us to interact with. Overall, a good submission!

Submitted(+1)

It is impressive the amount of art and polish you managed to do in just 7 days, that said, there is not much to do in the game, after a couple of minutes you explored the entire island and then you just stay there thinking what to do with the materials you just collected, I would have preferred much complete and fun gameplay and sacrifice some of the art but awesome work.

Impressive visuals. The game is very charming. I think it feels unfinished in its current state though. Without being able to do anything with the materials I gather (as far as I could tell at least), I feel like I'm just doing busy work. Once other features are in, I could imagine this being quite a fun game.

A very gorgeous 3D sandbox, in the likes of Animal crossing crossed with Harvest moon.

Theme:

This category was tough for me, since the game was incomplete, I couldn't tell how the theme played into this game. 

Visuals:

Okay, this game was beautiful. So many 3D art assets that all looked fantastic with great texturing. The main character pug was adorable. The water of the ocean reminded me strongly of Wind waker, which is a compliment! Overall visually the game was remarkable.

Sound/Music:

The game was incomplete but the music track that was playing was so relaxing and melted into my ears while I played. The sound effects were good for what you had, but if you expand this game, they could use some additional polish!

Overall:

So this is an interesting game. The game looks great and I can visualize such a striking game, but with it be only a sandbox to explore, there isn't much to do except to check out the beauty of the game. To be completely honest, this game needs to be finished and released, that way the real experience can be enjoyed and not just skimmed over due to lacking a goal at this moment. I want to give praises to this game, while giving the fair warning that this is not a complete experience yet. But I really want to see it turn into a full game!

I streamed it here, starts at 1:28:00

Impressive work for only 1 week. There is not much things to do, but just visiting your island and se coconut grows was delightfull.
Congratulation, you have a good start for something bigger !

Submitted(+1)

And it does not look like it is made in a week you are really good ☺

Great game

Cute animation I really liked it 

Good job!

Submitted

Stunning visuals and animations ! This is good performance for a game made in one week :o
I wasn't sure about the goad of the game when playing it the first time. I'd love to test the craft system when it's ready ! :)

Developer(+1)

Thanks for thinking so! 😊 The gameplay will basically be a mix of farming, building and tycoon where you will harvest materials to make structures for producing and selling CocoDrops! There's a lot more I have planned and it'll take some time so I greatly appreciate if you stick around. 😄

Submitted

cute game awesome animations, rate mine

Developer

Thank you! Will try out your entry as well! 👍

Submitted

thx

Submitted

The character and his animations are so cute, I really liked it. 
and the crafting mechanics are nice. Nice 3d game in the landscape of this gamejam!

Developer

Thanks! Crafting isn't in the game yet though, but I believe you get the gist of the gameplay. 😊

Submitted

Really great looking game. I love the visuals, the sounds, the music. Too bad you can't really do much at the time. Maybe a bit too ambitious for a week long jam but definitely continue working on this game, I hope you finish it one day

Developer(+1)

Thank you for checking it out and for your support! My goal for this jam was to start out a dream project and it's ok if I didn't finish it. Really just thankful to actually have it exist now. 😊

Submitted(+1)

Great job in that case. I think you've got a solid foundation for a great game. Keep it up

Submitted

Cut down all the tress , watered all the coconuts, forgot I was rating games for a 7 day game jam. Incredible work, just keep going with it.

Developer

You actually did? Amazing! I scattered them coconuts all over the place and when you go to the front shore, you can see all your hard work, or perhaps destruction. 😄
Thanks for spending your time at Pug's Coco Island! Much appreciated!

Submitted

That is impressive and that all made in 7 days wow. Me as a harvest moon fan i love it. The animation a cute the colorpallet is nice. Sadly nothing keeps me playing like a crafting and selling . I know 7 days is not much but maybe it was dreamed to big. I see alot of things which cut have been cut in favor of gameplay, like the mountain or the bears on the boad the are adorable but not necessary.

Developer

Ah, yes! Harvest moon is ❤ and one part of it that captivated me was the sense of wonder when you go up the mountain, and if you notice with the camera movement, it was inspired by that change of perspective in HM, so I implemented it on my game as well. So creating a mountain of my own is like a homage to that game and felt very important.

As for the bears, they're actually pugs with different colors (fawn, silver, black + brown, and albino.) Also the banana motor boats play an essential role for the gameplay, as they will be the initial transport method for visitors/customers going to the island. At least that's what I planned at first. Decided to add them in quickly before submitting because they were easy and less of a hassle. 😁

Well, thanks for playing the game, means a lot! 😄

Submitted

It was really cool. it definitely gives animal crossing vibes in a good way. though i was wondering how to put together all the stuff

Developer

Thank you! I really like the look and play of Animal Crossing, just don't have the actual experience of playing it. 😅
As for putting stuff together -crafting, building and selling aren't in the game yet as I decided not to force-add them in so I could submit in time.

Submitted

Very cute game and art work was very well done! Loved the tool tips in the beginning for the controls! 

The trees exploding when chopped down was hilarious! 

Thought the movement was a little difficult at first but got used to it!

Great game! If you wouldn't mind check out my game!

Developer

Thanks so much! Added those tool tips in the last hour of the jam, good thing the game was simple enough that it would require me to add just a few cloud bubbles. Nice to know they work fine! 😄

Haha, didn't really mean for them to explode, but glad you found them funny though.
There are other things I tried to be funny with, have you seen them? 😁 (Hint: requires "Next day/s")

Can you expand to how the movement was difficult for you? Was it the halt thing? or just the directional alignment? Would appreciate more feedback for improvement. 👍

Submitted(+1)

It felt like more of the directional alignment when sprinting around! It just seemed to lock in a direction and was hard to make turns out get out of tight spots!

I noticed boats in the water with like a banana shaped boat with a bunch of bears or something lol

Submitted

Super cute game! Destroying stuff was lots of fun. Very smooth controls and fantastic art! Not 100% sure how it fits the theme, but quite enjoyable :)

Would appreciate it if you check out my game!

Developer(+1)

Thanks! A bit of a shame that I could only add in a few interactions within the time-frame, but I'm glad you still found it fun and cute!
As for the theme, I know it's a bit tricky to see, but if you think about it, -one coconut tree resource to produce multiple items and to expand from- is how I interpreted the theme with.

And sure, I'll be happy to check out your game as well! 😄

Submitted

Such a good game ,it is very satisfying to cut the palm trees :D.Did you had a team or solo?

Developer

I like cutting the trees as well! Do you think the explosion is a bit overboard? 😅
And no team btw, I'm running solo on this one as this is my passion project and really holds close to my heart.
But maybe in the future, I can collaborate with a friend on another project.
Thanks for playing! 🙏

Submitted

definitely one of my favorites from the jam, i purely enjoyed exploring the beautiful world, awesome job!

Developer

Oh, thank you! Means a lot to me. Thanks for checking this game out! 😊
