I'm sorry. I'm not sure how valid my advise is. I don't even know whether I should comment or not. But here I am... I come from a different cultural background, but to me your hubby sounds like a 100% momma's boy and your family in law should mind their own business. Especially his mother. You aren't wrong. You aren't bad. You aren't a disappointment. Everything about this situation sounds like old-fashioned over the top conservative bollocks. You shouldn't need to fight for your right of living your own life. You shouldn't feel trapped. Because that's what they do (Energy vampires). Or at least it sounds like that to my ears.

Your husband is stuck in the past and sounds like one of those "women should behave" numb-nuggets. Then there's the stereotypical "dragon" mom. It's 2022.


I don't want to give up, but if he keeps taking his mother's side and didn't consider my feelings, that I need him, how is he my husband?
...........
I found out that he didn't even know why I was upset in the first place... I mean, he didn't even listen to me when I exploded and talked about many things?

I'm very sorry... but no. He is not. You should be the priority. I... ah. If he magically doesn't make a 180° turn very soon then I don't see how this will last. To be frank I can only see it getting worse from here on. He showed you his face after making this marriage official. Either "divorce" yourself from them or you bend yourself to such a painful degree at which you aren't even yourself. I don't think it's wise to let this "recent" thing turn into a sunk-cost fallacy on your side. Go while you still can.

I got Flowerhead. I actually do like poppy fields.

Fairies are known to be a capricious sort, after all.

Yes! Traditionally fairies and elves can be really nasty and shrewd. It's pop literature who turned them nice and good.

Oof. That sucks... I'm glad you still retained your muse to do something else. I understand that you are too burned and frustrated  getting back to developing CUPID for the time being.

This release is like multiple holidays and festivities in one package. Thank you, Rin and the team!!!!

I have been playing your games since Ascension. (I'm supper stoked for the remake, by the way. I absolutely love the old school RPG mechanics, level design, mobility) I'm happy to see you come this far and making games.

I'm a bit late, but congrats!

I hope you two have a happy and satisfied marriage.

Not sure. From the looks of it will be only for Windows and Mac.

Cool! Adding the additional routes after it's release may give you a breather.

Why is this project tagged as "dating-sim" or "otome"?

"Disk quota exceeded"

Does that mean your MacOs has only a limited amount of drives it can hook up into it's registry of it's system? I'm sorry, I'm a noob with MacOS. Anyway I found this troubleshooting post. Maybe it helps.

As for Jedit suddenly throwing in symbols... can you open the file in another coding program/text file like for example Notepad ++ to see if it still throws in symbols? (Notepad++ is free and opensource. No bloat or adware)

https://notepad-plus-plus.org/

If it doesn't then something is wrong with the settings of the Jedit program.

"You can try opening those files with windows' western charset cp1252 (aka windows-1252) because the euro sign € is not in latin-1 (aka iso-8859-1). In the open dialog you can choose your encoding in Commands/Encodings. Otherwise do you know Unicode?"

Otherwise I would post your problem to a programming community. Reddit allows you to make throwaway accounts without an email. So that is a quick and painless option.

Hard to say without playing it. Maybe make the background a really dark-brown or whatever colour the room for the most part has to make the dark-gray puzzle pieces stick out a bit better?

Holy cow! The art and design is so interesting.

Mom's smart. If termites are a problem in your region then that's a good idea to use metal as a frame for the roof.

Take your time. I hope the muslim workers are fine with the dogs, for the dogs and your sake.

That sucks!  Imaging having wooden floors or having your rooms completely carpeted. Thank goodness your floors are tiled!

I hope your electronic devices are okay. If it leaks that much then I would be scared to connect any device to the apartment's power outlets. Who knows if the water has already crawled into the walls.

Yes! Congrats!

Heya!

Just a heads up, but the Win download version contains both the Windows and MAC version of the game. Maybe that was intentional, but I thought you may want to know because looking at those different file sizes is weird.

Heya!

Your art improved compared to your previous project! I really dig Soma's and Frey's design.
Do we get to see Yrsa in the full version?

I don't frequent the itch.io forums, so no to that. I know about the "Amare" tag, because I follow visual novel devs and I play a lot of visual novels. Mainly otome, or games that have otome elements to it. About a half a year ago there was another big discussion and drama around the otome tag (mostly on Tumblr) and what it encompasses. Basically people tried to tear it apart instead of accepting that it is just a demographic thing ( Otome simply is: GxB - female player oriented/ male romance interests), like yuri or bara is. So the community came up with a new all encompassing term called Amare. It has gained traction amongst the visual novel developer and player crowd ever since.

Amare - to love. Doesn't matter who to who is.

Good luck with the new tags. I hope they give your project a boost.

We don't know why but the tag "Fantasy" isn't giving us any visibility nor the "Tactical-RPG" one.

Ah, that's disappointing. It's really weird, because fantasy romance is really popular. Add RPG and round based on top of it and it's like a delicious mix that Dragon Age, Baldur's gate, Neverwinter Nights or Fire Emblem players should crave for. Romance visual novel players will also go crazy over everything that is tagged fantasy. So... I don't know what's going on.

Heya!
Just found this by chance while browsing the strategy section. This looks really cool and the drawn character sprites are gorgeous.
May I recommend adding more tags to it for better visibility? One of the main focus of this game seems to be relationships, so the "romance" tag feels appropriate. "Harem" and "Otome" too, since there is the possibility to role-play our main char as any gender as we wish so GxB and BxG are possible. Maybe "Amare" too? It's a new tag that encompasses all types or romantic content.


Edit: Ah, forget to mention the "Fantasy"  and "Turn-based Strategy" tag.
 

Look through their comment history. They are either a bot or have no clue on how to download from itch.io. Possible a non-native speaker.

Lol, Pritchard is such a dick.

Heya!

It's the user from Germany again. We are now able to view your game on the steam store, but we cannot buy it. I can press the "Add to cart" button, then the store proceeds to go to the shopping cart. This were the customer normally says "purchase for myself" or "purchase as a gift" and then proceeds to the checkout.

"purchase for myself" and "purchase as a gift" are greyed out. I can't even proceed to buy it. This is very strange. I just wanted to let you know. Maybe the Steam team messed up and people from certain regions still can't buy it such as myself.

... Nein? Es geht bei mir auch nicht nicht... Das ist sehr komisch.

Yes!!! I can view it now on my Steam browser! Thank you for being persistent!

Thank you and no pressure! I was just worried that this going to be a permanent thing or so. Also giving your VN the adult only tag is laughable when at the same day ecchi games make it on Steam.

Anyone here got any idea why it's not available in some regions? I'm from Germany. Does this has something to do with tags? If so then it's really weird, because I can view other VNs that are tagged with "sexual content". "Violent" can also be viewed. So I wonder what it is that makes the regional Steam block trigger on this game :(


Edit: I own and can see Absolute alchemical potion on steam. It's so weird.

Thanks for letting me know that it was an asset pack, because you never know.

I haven't reported the game or the dev in case you are wondering. That's why I asked you in the first just to make sure and to let you know. It's just that art/asset theft isn't so uncommon amongst indie dev crowd. Saw this happen often enough when Steam Greenlight was a thing. So I'm always supper sceptical. 

Anyway, thank you for the detailed answer. Hope you have a good day, dear dev.

Heya!

Are you the artist of the character sprites or did you hire someone to make some custom ones for your game? If yes, then I think someone ripped your Castoria sprite (and did some edits to it) from your game and used it for their own game they are about to release on Steam:

Heya Pinlin!


Someone uploaded your game on itch.io. Do you know this person?

https://wonki90.itch.io/darknights

Update your drivers and windows frameworks (.NET Framework ect.)

English version in progress

Yes!!!! Thank you.

Thank you! They are so pretty and elegant.

Can you let your Artist know that I love the way the clothes are drawn. I'm not only talking about the design, I'm also talking about the fabric and it's shading.

Oh, I remember this one from the Lemmasoft Forum! Gotta replay it!

I hope the recent flooding in July left you and your family/friends relatival unharmed.


Thank you for the update.

Oh, I wasn't aware that they aren't an open source font. Nevermind then.
