PDF's can be tricky like that! I make quite a few myself and are never quite sure where the right line is, but I usually like to let people zoom in at least 3 to 4 times and have it be not blurry just to help visually impaired folks!

Just bought and read the comic-- I quite liked it!
It's always nice reading a sexy comic that has a lot of pages! 37 pages really made it feel like a completed one-shot and I think gave us just enough info about the two of them that the eventual sex scene felt really natural.
One thing I do wish was slightly different was the size of the images in the PDF. I only took me about two or three clicks before the images started getting blurry to the point of being noticeable and they made it so I couldn't enjoy any detail or check if I was reading something correctly.
In the future, I would suggest maybe just allowing those images to be larger? Just a thought! It's a real shame to have such beautiful lineart get blurry so fast, I was a little shocked!
Your style is wonderful and your layouts are fantastic-- super easy to pick up and read comic, thanks a ton for sharing!
Oh gosh, hey! I'm so glad to hear you liked it!
Tomai is a ton of fun to work on and hopefully there will be some DLC (free, of course) for the game decently soon!!! Keep your eyes peeled and thanks a ton for playing and leaving a comment <3333
Checking from your comment history, it also looks like this isn't the first time you've had trouble running a game-- so I would suggest checking your PC for problems and cleaning it out. ;)
Firstly, make sure you downloaded the PC version of the game. Secondly, you will need to right click and "extract here" or "extract (folder name)" and NOT the "extract files..." option. This option will get you nowhere, the game needs to be in it's own folder on the desktop, just chilling there.
From there, inside the folder should just be all the regular 'ol files that you can ignore, except for the .exe that should be titled "SolanaceaeAnotherTime" and have a little picture. That should then open the game.
Ren'py games don't need any install and just work out of the folder-- so if you're having any troubles beyond following this there's unfortunately not much I can do for you-- as I did not program the system I just made the game within the system. Google will be your next option if this stuff doesn't work.
Dreaming Treat just feels like such a good big game and feels so nice to play after most all of our main characters are introduced! It feels cool to see everyone and to have those relationships finally come to a head...! I LOVE IT.
All the art and assets are so immaculate and I'm still so honored to have Satine in this game!!! The beach scene is...perfect.
Another wonderful comic!!! Werewolves are one of my fav monsters and these two together are just wonderful.
As always, your style is very unique and the lines and colors are always so interesting to look at. I always love the hair and faces you draw, as well as the hands.
I really enjoyed the texture of the comic and I feel like this horny fun came out at just the right time for Halloween! ^u^9 Thanks a ton for sharing, can't wait to see what the next one is!
Hi! Always look forward to your comics and just wanted to let you know the link to preview is weirdly not working. When I copy and paste the url, it works, but for some reason it's hyperlinked as a different url.
Just something I thought you should be aware of!
Thank you so much! Both I (DCS, the artist) and Arcade Party (the writer) are always really happy to read comments like this-- because so much of that stuff is really important to us! And I know I'm personally very flattered that you've played not only this game-- but Tomai and AWOO too! Ah, it's so awesome to hear!
Thanks a ton for taking the time to leave us this awesome comment, it does the heart good! <3
I would actually be someone who would participate in Yurijam over Barajam;; So whomever gave you that warning was right! (Here's the game I helped make for last year's Yurijam by the way.) November would probably be your best best imo, otherwise sometime in 2019?
Good luck with everything!
Thanks a ton for letting us know-- unfortunately I'm (DCS) way too busy to help host a jam-- let alone be in another jam so soon! @_@ But I think Arcade Party MIGHT be interested in helping out hosting-- so they will contact you separately via e-mail once they decide.
We'll keep this comment up so other people who might be interested can see-- but for now both Arcade Party and I have to simply say; good luck with everything!
Hi hi! Thanks a ton for your comment; we're both really glad to hear you liked the game so much! This game was super fun to work and I know that (the artist) just had such a fun time getting creative with the visuals within a time frame-- seeing what I could get away with, hehe.
So thank you again for playing and for your wonderful comment!
Love this game-- the art style and concept are all great!
The only thing I wish was that the game didn't reset all the way back to the title screen with every mini-game; or maybe the time limits were a bit longer? I could just be bad at the game though! I also think a slightly longer loop on the music would be awesome; I know someone like me who accidentally reset a bunch would appreciate it. <3
EDIT: After playing all the way thru-- I totally see now WHY it resets to the beginning every time! So scratch my earlier comment!
All in all, super charming and fun and easy to pick up! :D
Thanks so much! We had a really fun time putting this game together and it really fits with the type of porn we're trying to put out into the world-- so hearing all of this is much appreciated! <3
Well-- we left the game opened ended just in case; but unfortunately Arcade Party (the writer) is going on a hiatus soon so I don't suspect we'll be in a place to make a sequel anytime soon.
If you like Yarrow Valley, I highly suggest you check out Tomai, which was our submission to Yaoijam 2017. (I would also recommend just about any other game in either of our catalogues as well!)
We're glad you love Yarrow so much though!
Hey there! I'm the artist, DCS, hi! (I worked on this game with Arcade Party, I drew the whole thing and helped with coding, story, etc, and I'm usually the one to reply to comments for us!)
We're both very happy to hear you liked the game! The particle affects were something I had a ton of fun with and I just wanted to use them everywhere since I figured hey, alien planet is the perfect setting to finally use this awesome Ren'py feature!
Thanks a ton for playing and thanks a ton for your awesome comment! We really appreciate it!
Hi there-- thanks a ton! But actually, me, DarkChibiShadow-- drew the art, and Arcade Party wrote the script! :D That's how it is for every game we work on together! We're glad you liked it-- the game will have some free updates soon with new stuff so I hope you look forward to it!
This was the last game I made working with my old system of making talk sounds and I'm proud to say I'm much better at it now. Some of my newer games aren't out yet-- but I hope if you decide to check them out you'll like those better. :}
It's hard to find just the right balance of cute and fun for talk sounds; so I'm glad people at least have the option to turn it off if they need! Speaking of which, Arcade Party and I just released a new game a few days ago, called Yarrow Valley, with better talk sounds (and it's much shorter than this game) so if you liked Tomai I would love if you'd check it out and let me know what you think~
Oh, that's odd! You should have access to it basically indefinitely after purchasing it thru Itchio; but if you can't find it anymore and want it again, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get it settled.
(I'm glad you like the game!)
Aw hey, you're welcome and thanks for checking out my stuff! Right now I only have a handful of visual novels but I've got two BIG ones coming up with mostly linear plots, with tiny deviations. :D I make some pretty fun comics too! <33
There's a subset of visual novels called "kinetic novels" that Strawberry Daiquiri falls into; it's there to serve the purpose of showing you the story in a linear and organized fashion. I've made quite a few myself-- and they are very fun!
So I think you'd be more satisfied reading the story with that in mind-- instead of thinking of it as a game; think of it more as a comic or novel that you're able to control the pace of. :)
We work on it pretty consistently-- actually!
This project is just really big-- so it's hard to get stuff done fast for it. But! We're hoping to have a solution to this soon-- so keep your eyes peeled, we'll be needing all the support we can get! <3
The sound of the text scroll ARE the "voices" of the characters-- that's their purpose!
But no, there's no voice acting and any important sounds (there's not a lot of sound affects, mostly just music) are on a different sound channel; meaning the music slider controls the music and the sound slider controls the sound affects. The voice slider only makes quiet the beeps; as it is the character's "voice".
Hope that makes sense!
