Hey :3 I want to thank you all for your support for MUTE during the IGMC2018! <3 
Without you I wouldn't be at rank 29!

I've played through it and I like it^^
The art is really pretty and I can see that you've put a lot of effort into it. Not just the portraits, but also the little cutscene in the train. The maps are great and interesting, too. I'm a big fan of steampunk XD

Unfortunately, while it's an interesting idea, there isn't much story. You don't find out a lot about the characters or the world. Like, why is she mute? Where are her parents? How come she can see and talk to the horseman? (Interesting idea btw to add the horseman into this story. How do they fit?) And what's the difference between normal humans and ones with animal ears?
Also, the way it ended felt a little weird. It would have been great to end it on a cliffhanger and while I'm sure the time limit was a problem, the last scene could have been extended just a little to create a cliffhanger. 

In conclusion, I really love the art and the world. The story seems promising, though it was a little short. I'd love to see more of this game^^

Developer

Yeay, thank you! It's really nice to read, that you can see the effort I made to this point. (And want to put in the rest of the game too!)
And I'm really into steampunk as well. xD
It's a really good idea from you that the world should be more explained in the beginning. I think I have a idea how to do that without losing the focus on Lynette at the gamestart.

Btw I want to show a little update the next days. :D
After the player voting-phase I'll upload an updated demo. I'll try to put your tip into that version. ^w^9

Wow! It looks completely incredible! Sadly atmosphere and good sound design.

I like the concept and idea. Not free of bugs, but > DEMO < and so it's okay.

Good work!

Developer

Thank youuu! >///<
I'm glad to read that the atmosphere and sound are so good as I hoped it would be for the player. :'D 
Could you tell me which bugs you found? Then I can take a better look at it. ^^

It's a good start to a cute little game. I really like the character designs for the horsemen of the apocalypse guys. I wanna see the last one! My only complaint is that it's hard to tell where you can and can't go in the mountains.

Developer

Thank you so much! I thought quiet long about their design. First I thought of giving them animal-traits so symbolise them a bit more but that didn't gave them the dark look I wanted for them.

And thanks for the feedback. I will take a look how to make it easier for the player to see where you can go and where not. :D

you know what sold me? The little kicking on her feet when she sits on the bench in the train. So adorable lol

Ah shoot, the game crashed when I had to move along the rails of the bridge when backtracking, but i replayed it again and didn't that.

So far the game is very interesting. I can already feel that this is going to be a sad game. And omg, she's mute! Plz finish this game haha. So is war like a persona of her? He seems like the bad person in this.

I like your artwork too. The environment was great! I wish the character design were a bit more refined but at this point im just being picking lol

Uhhh, there was a bug when you can interact with the fire many times. Sometimes I felt like I had no idea where to go, especially in the beginning.

I see huge potential in this so...

5 Star :P

Developer

Thank youuu don't make me blush! ^w^

I want to make it a little secret what War, Justice and Plaque are exactly till the game is finished.
Because I want to give the player the opportunity to experience the story of the game as he interprets it.
And yes the game will be really sad in a few points. ^^'

I will take a look at the campfire-event thanks for the info!
And of course I will finish the game. x) <3 

I'm really happy that you like it so much! <3
I was really nervous  because the story is more serious and a little sad that most people will not like it.

That's ok. I write very serious and sad stories too. Those r my favorite. You should try my game, the chains that bound me.  The art isn't as great as yours, and your eyes might bleed from staring at a dark screen to much but the game is playable lol...

Developer(+1)

Of course! And I don't mind a dark screen. I had a small horror game in work too and it's also dark. xD
I'll send you feedback when I played it. ^^
