This is beautiful. Not just the art, but the story as well. I'm a bit stumped though - may I ask for a hint? The place I'm stuck is with the generator thing: "It's too high up. I can't reach it from here"

Developer

Thanks! <3

There is something you have to drag infront of the battery. It should be noticeable when you activate it.
In future versions I'll totally include some tutorials xD

Aha, I found it! And now that I look back, it did stand out a bit from the background, which signals that it can be activated. Maybe make it stand out a bit more? Or make something you can interact with to get hints if you need to?

Thanks again for the lovely game!

I enjoyed this game a lot! I really like your art and the atmosphere that you're creating. It has something peaceful but at the same time melancholic to it. Well done :)

I finally finished it, what a gorgeous game, it is reminiscent of a movie I loved as a child called Once Upon a Forest, and the characters are adorable. 

The artistic direction is absolutely wonderful. I was unsure if there was only one ending, but I loved that it was open ended in case this becomes something larger. Fantastic job!

(also, I loved the stinging bug, the world needs stuffed animals of him haha)

Developer

Now I have to look out for that movie. :D

Yes, it has only one ending in this version. I ran out of time, but initially I had planed a lot more (also player directed) interaction with the spirit. Someday maybe ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

It's cool, you liked it so much! โค

Amazing art style and atmospheric maps. I'm looking forward to play this game. It looks really fantastic! Keep going :)

Developer

Yay, thank you! <3

I hope you'll have fun with it. ^w^

Hey Luzee
I gave you my vote for the beautiful story in combination with your great art skills
You just have to get used to te menu control, but it doesn't take long
I'm looking forward to the full version and will play it at any rate
Good look for the IGMC

Hey Luzee!
I have to admit I gave you my vote just for the graphics :)
Now to play the game!
Stay funky,
Dez

Haha! Thanks a lot! <3

I hope you will also enjoy the game itself. :D

We played the game and liked it a lot! It's cool to switch between the different realities ;)

Developer(+1)

Yay, glad you liked it! ^w^

This is a beautiful game! But how do I save? I can't seem to select Save in the menu. Do I need to go to a save point?

(Edited 1 time)

try pressing ESC twice!

Noooo you're done before me, Lucy! ยฐ^ยฐ

Iยดll test it when my entry is done it looks so awesome!  I wish you so much luck! :'D

Developer

Yay! I'm looking forward to play yours! >w<

Good luck to you too! :3

This is really cool but I have no idea how to progress the game. I've found the clover/boat piece - but I feel like I've interacted with everything with both and nothing's happening. :(

Developer

Look inside the house in both worlds. There is an object in the spirit world you can read about. :3

Same place I'm at, nearly broke my laptop, pressed every key

I read about the greenling, but i can't seem to figure out how to interact with it... The green item and the blue item do nothing with it, or anything else so far.

Developer

If you equip the boat shard after you read about the bug you should get a hint. :)
Just look outside, there is someone who wants a...er... favor of you.

Weird, I had tried it and it gave me the same reply as with the leaf. Once I rebooted the game it let me progress...

Maybe it's a small glitch? Anywho, back to playing this beautiful game!

Developer

Could be, yes. I'll take a look at it. :3
Hope, you'll enjoy the rest. ^w^
