This is certainly one of the more ambitious ones I've  seen!    Really impressed by the soundtrack and art style.  The transitions were really well done too. I t's a small thing but I   liked that the credits  were "in world" on the map. Nice job all round!

Thanks for the kind words! :D It is always nice to see how small things make such a big difference! :)

Beautiful ambience, great mood that is generated by the music and the lighting. Loved the art style as well. <3

Developer

Thanks! :D

A very pleasant game to play. The art style is lovely and perfectly delivers the message. Well done devs!

Developer

Thanks! We are glad you liked it. :)

Cool game and music!, I didn't learn how to eat my own food, and in one level I couldn't move anywhere because there weren't any campfire near the minimap. With some polishing, your game will become a better experience, congrats!

Developer

Thank you very much for the feedback and the kind words. Using items on yourself is buggy sometimes but we are looking forward to upload a fix to that after the voting period is  finished.  Can you remember on which day you could not reach another campfire? Was it day 7 or 8 or was it at    one of the last campfires? Currently the amount of campfires on the map is limited. :)

Amazing mood and music, though I couldn't eat any food so I wasn't able to finish

Developer(+1)

Hey Iris! Glad you liked it! You can't eat at the camfire that is a fix we will be shipping after the ratings are done :) You can eat in the overworld though by dragging food onto your avatar.

Developer

Thanks for playing Fireside! :)

I really enjoyed playing it, although I came to a point out of food and couldn't interact further. But anyways, nice atmosphere!

Developer

Thanks for playing!   As soon as you run out of food you would "die / game over" but its not fully implemented... so,  you just cannot do anything anymore.

It is very sad that the dialogs disappear so quickly.
Music reminds me the game "Life is strange"!

Developer

Thank you for playing! :)
We are  looking forward to change the dialogue system a bit so it fits your reading speed! :)

Hm, liked the idea of traveling and finding new items with the narrator who tells us what do we see while traveling, also liked the idea of starving and accidents but didn't really like and understand the idea of fire camps and strangers, I think it should be more unusual and functional or shouldn't be at all^ good luck guys, I hope that you'll finish this game's journey!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! We are thinking of implementing   more interactions and gameplay features while being at the camp fire. :)

I really enjoyed this game, the atmosphere was great and liked how the strangers turned into familiar faces. 
I had a hard time reading the text because of the low contrast and I wish I could have seen the end screen, but I truly enjoyed playing!

Developer

Thank you very much for the feedback! We are looking forward to improve the readability and add a end screen . :)

Beautiful! One of the best entries I've checked out in terms of mood and atmosphere. With more development time and design work I can easily see this becoming a successful game. Great work.

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much for the kind words - this means a lot to us! Yeah, we are definitely looking forward to fixing some bugs and improve the gameplay further!

Beautiful atmosphere! :) Music, sound and visuals (especially the animations) go really well together. 

I suggest changing the font though for better readability. And I didn't figure out the social stat yet - it seemed to go down even after I meet people or give them items. Also I think you should allow the player to use items on the own character while at the fire side.

Looking forward to see what you will make out of the project in the future!

Developer (1 edit) (+1)

Social stat is still very much work in progress^^ But yeah! Thanks for the feedback!

Developer

Thanks for giving our game a try and especially, thanks for the feedback!

Good music. Love that the hair bounces on the head of the NPC. xD Gorgeous artwork!

Developer(+1)

Haha, yeah. Some juicy hair animations are important!  Thank you very much!

The game gives off a sense of calmness that I very much like. Kudos to art and music too.

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much! :D

Bit slow, but stunning art-work. Nice!

Developer

We tried to make the game a bit atmospheric  and a bit more narrative heavy. Thanks! :)

Submitted(+2)

Very nice art - the music and drawings are very polished!

The gameplay is not really my cup of tea, but I can see the appeal - although some introduction could be useful. (I am a fan of faster-paced games though :D)

Developer

Thank you very much! 
Haha, yeah it is  a slower-paced game  . I get your point there!  :D
We are looking forward to implementing some kind of introduction!

Submitted(+2)

I love the artstyle of the game. The music, the drawings is so comforting. With what did you do the music? Nicely done entry!

Developer

Thank you very much! :)
I will need to ask our music guy.  :D

Developer(+2)

Matze used Cubase 9 as DAW and recorded the guitar, percussion and harmonica^^
Plugin wise he used:
- The TAL-U-NO-62 Synth plugin for the pad & bass
- The "Wolno" Piano by Felt instruments
- Some Tape Saturation, Compression etc. to keep the mix glued together.

All the libraries he used are free!

after an hectic gamejam and my intense game, a relaxing virtual fireside is what we needed. 

waiting for multiplayer expansion pack xD

Developer(+1)

:D Glad you like it!
Multiplayer sounds like a lot of fun (and a lot of work xD). 

Developer(+1)

Haha :D I was thinking about that.  First up will be implementing all the gameplay we wanted to. Then we'll quadruple the development costs  by making it multiplayer :P We've got much work to do. Glad you  liked it!

Submitted(+2)

very nice and good looking game! pretty music too, really sets the mood for meeting stranger around the fire. I would have loved to see more writing and dialogue with the characters : ) one of the best i've played so far

Developer

Thank you very much, Jasper!   Yeah, we would have liked to include some more content but we ran out of time. :D

Submitted(+2)

The game is very aesthetically pleasing and relaxing. I had fun playing it!

Developer
