Very relaxing game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

Despite the inherit complications I really was taken back by this game due to the complexity of the game given the competition rules.

@Adam Pajor : Yeah, sorry about the reloading. I have an idea of how to improve that, so hopefully it'll work when I have time. The music is by the amazing Paws Menu! Go check out their stuff: http://paws.bandcamp.com/music

@PhoenixBoltS : I'm glad you were able to figure it out! When I have more time, I'll also try to add some in-game instruction so it's not as confusing.

its a bit difficult to understand whats going on in the beginning, but later it become easy and nice :D

It was difficult to understand what's going on and I needed to reload the game like 3 times (but it was mentioned to do, so it's OK). I really loved the music! The graphics are pleasant too and after I figured out the gameplay I liked it.

@Meursault Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it in spite of that! :D

@Garrett Thanks so much! That's much appreciated! Yeah, for some reason it doesn't always load everything correctly. My only guess is maybe all the assets just aren't loading fast enough? But they should display after they're loaded, so I'm not sure. It does still work if there are no save files... Just have to figure out what's going wrong so I can fix it, then I continue development. :)

Oh man! I've been watching your progress on the screenshot thread and I love how this turned out.

After your first post, I was like: "I really hope it plays like Uncharted Waters."

That indeed is the case, very nice execution.

I had an issue the first time the game loaded; nothing really spawned. After a reload, it looks like everything worked.

Maybe something is crashing if there isn't a save file yet? I hope you crush your bugs and expand this idea.

I like the style of the game. Even without a goal to work towards, i like the core concept for a trading sim. Good work!

@bonus1up Did you look at the map? You might want to try reloading, too. Maybe the assets didn't load in. I'm uploading an optimization patch right now.

Also, since the text is so small in-game, I had to put the instructions in the text below the game! :)

I sailed and sailed but couldn't find another island... Am I missing something? Great ambience though!
