¡Muchas gracias! Sí, definitivamente lo voy a mirar para solucionarlo.

¡No! Te pregunto: ¿probaste refrescar la página y cliquear Continuar partida guardada en el menú principal? Me gustaría saber si es un error que te pasa cada vez que llegás ahí, o si pasó una vez sola y ahora cuando intentás de nuevo ya no pasa.

¡Uy, gracias por la data!

¡Che, esto es excelente!

Me encanta el sistema de recorrido espacial → desbloqueo de recuerdo entrañable → final alternativo. Y todas las referencias a la cultura popular, obvio.

Lo único que haría es arreglar el sistema de guardado (o eliminarlo por completo, si arreglarlo es muy difícil, aunque imagino que para eso habría que arreglar mucho los wait), porque (a) empecé cliqueando un par de enlaces sin leer (para pispear las ilustraciones) y después no podía volver a leer desde el principio, y (b) tuve que jugarlo en pestaña de incógnito para poder resetearlo y ver finales diferentes.

Al margen de eso, me encantó todo.

¡Consideralo expandido!

Thank you!

I got 223/233 and had a blast. The music is so simple, it has no right to make me this emotional.

¡Gracias a vos por jugar!

Hey this is great! I was updating info on my games on IFDb, so I looked up my name and this came up. It is actually a very compelling, super short story, and I'm glad to have partially inspired it.

Es buenísima, y el responsable es fedecardi.itch.io. Tardé un montón en convencerlo de que la subiera a Bandcamp, y ahora sigo tratando de convencerlo de que suba la banda sonora de nuestro juego anterior.

¡Excelente! Está muy bueno para crear historias bien rápido y lanzarlas al mundo.

¡Me alegra! Acá hay una lista de varios juegos de este tipo en castellano: https://itch.io/c/525421/twines-en-castellano

Awww you absolutely do! And if Arthur weren't so disciplined about social distancing, I'm sure he'd be hugging you right now.

Thank you so much! We're considering some new projects in the same vein, but we can't promise anything.

We should! Let's pray we're responsible enough to do it.

I am troubled by your username and thankful for your comment!

¡Lo siento! Pero queremos mostrar y publicitar un poco este juego antes de publicarlo, para lo cual hace falta tener esta página visible.

¡Genial! Y sólo morí π*100 veces.

Gracias por jugar =) Muertes: 314

My conscience is clean now. Thank you.

¡Muchas gracias!

¡Chasgracias!

Thank you so much!

Thank you! I worked hard at making it look as real as possible.

Strange! It loads just fine on my end. You could try a different browser, or a different device (going to davidtmarchand.itch.io/element-date on any laptop, tablet, or phone should load the game).

Hi! I found that Itch.io allows you to tag games with 2 different variants of Spanish:

  • Spanish; Latin America
  • Spanish; Castilian (I assume this is meant to be European Spanish, though I don't think Castilian is a super clear name for that)

I'd like to share some links that filter for Spanish as a language, but I don't care which variant they use, so:

  • For games in Spanish; Castilian: itch.io/games/lang-es works great!
  • For games in Spanish; Latin America: itch.io/games/lang-es-419
  • For games in BOTH Spanish; Castilian AND Spanish; Latin America: itch.io/games/lang-es/lang-es-419
  • For games in EITHER Spanish; Castilian OR Spanish; Latin America: ????

Is there any way that you could implement some form of lang-es||lang-es-419 key word to put in a URL so it'll show me games in any of those two? It could also work for other tags/categories, like itch.io/games/platform-macos||platform-ios for people who can play only on those OSs, but they don't really care which one.

Both approaches sound good, only in the 2nd case I would still love it if there was always an option for switching languages. For example, I like to have my browser and phone OS in Spanish (I'm from Argentina), but if the game was originally written in English I'd rather see the original version, even if the devs were kind enough to localize it.

¡Muchas gracias!

Literally the response I was looking for when I developed it.

Good. It is all as I planned.

Aw thank you!

Thank you so much <3

Right on! Thank you so much.

Nice! Thank you very much. Entirely fair criticism. There'll be definitely more systems and interesting choices if we ever attempt something like this again.

Dude, thank you so much!

Aw, thank you so much! And I agree about Alli, she should get more voice acting work.

Thank you!

Yes, we consider it complete, though we also knew from the start that our scope was very very small. We'd definitely add more agency, interactivity, and closure to the experience if we were to do something on this genre again.

Not sure what you mean with “restarting”. If you right-swipe multiple characters but don't date them right away, finishing a date should always take you back to the other characters you liked ready for the dating. Only when that pool of characters runs out you'll go back to the swiping screen. If that's what you mean, maybe the game could do a better job at communicating it.

Hey thanks! Yeah, the other game has tons of extra story. It's just more “fate of the galaxy” related.

Hi! This is absolutely us “finishing up something on the backburner.” We’ve been working on and off on this for the last few months, but we recorded all the voices a week before the start of this jam and I used my jam time to implement the voices, add all sound effects, fix some bugs, and put together a small trailer.

Most of the stories are based on characters from a different game we also worked on, and we have full permission by the rest of that team to use them here. I hope you like it!

This reminds me I need to spend an afternoon uploading all my games’ source codes.

¡Me encanta!

Desde el punto de vista de la escritura, lo único que me hace un poco de ruido es la última oración de uno de los comentarios posibles de la señora (“Es la sociedad moderna que arruina todo”), porque medio que la deschava ideológicamente de un modo demasiado arquetípico, siendo que la oración anterior (“En mi época los hombres te decían piropos, cosas lindas, no como ahora”) representa exactamente lo mismo y de un modo más verosímil.

En lo técnico, fijate que si metés index.html en un archivo comprimido ZIP y le decís a Itch.io que el archivo es para jugar online, lo va a mostrar directamente la página sin necesidad de descargar nada.
