This was...rather clunky and weird and unbelievable (like a coffee maker in a dorm room? no one can afford that if they're living in a dorm). They've been friends for months (re: "Months later" option) but only start talking about other hobbies when MC goes to hang out in Courtney's room? And the "tongue war" bit is just...off-putting. It sounds like the creator is younger than college-aged. Especially if this is the case, I really don't intend to hurt the dev's feelings at all, and it's a good start for sure. (Definitely keep making games!) The 18+ scene could stand to be less porny; focus on making it more organic if you're going to include it at all. I hope that the dev is actually female, but I understand that a loooot of lesbian content on itch is by pervy dudes for pervy dudes. /eyeroll In which case, y'all have no reason to be making lesbian content and gtf away from us

The music, mechanics, and sfx in the beginning were negatively distracting, took away from the story, but the art and the music at the end got me so hard. I'm not bawling my eyes out, I just didn't need to see it's fine
This is so cute!! The art is lovely and the music is reminiscent of Final Fantasy XII! I love this!
Edit: After actually playing it (though I'm only a few minutes in), this game was clearly inspired by FF and I'm in LOOOVE. I adore how you chose to go with a much kinder, less toxic narrative by having Lance reassure Verm that "all mice [feel fear]," instead of what is usually to be expected, that an older brother would make fun of or mock a younger brother for being afraid.
Edit 2: OMG, THE 6-STICK "S" ON THE WALL. (y'know, the one we all drew in middle school/high school)
Edit 3: NOOOO LAAAAANNNCCEEEEEEEE
This is seriously such a great game. Got me emotionally invested so quickly. Excited for the kickstarter launch!!
Edit 4: (wow, this must be annoying, sorry!) Saw on the website that a Mac version is "possible later." :c Do you know about how much later?
I love the concept and a lot of the content is really funny and well written. I hope not to hurt any feelings when I say this, but... the narration is really bad. Really could have done without it; it takes away from the overall experience of the game. I found I had to mute altogether, which was a bummer because I really like the background music.
Woooo, beat the Monster Endless Dungeon!! Bumped Derek's HP to 3000, STR 6000, and boosted his farts to like 50, potion strength to 700 and full heals to 11, though I didn't use the full heals more than once this last run and only used a few potions.
Whew, just completed the Coco Endless Dungeon as well (10:30 pm PST, 5/28/2019). I've sunk so many hours into this game over the past two days haha. Derek's stats as of this completion for anyone curious: HP - 2000, STR - 2680, carrying 17 potions (used all but 4 in this run), 20x bull farts (lmaooo), 3x full heals, 5x thirsties, 2x doors.
How do we block games/content from creators? re: my reply to the thread itself, below
"Yeah, I'd like to know how to block games. I know I can block content creators via their profiles, but it doesn't seem to block their content. I don't want to see pro-pedophilia porny shit and since mods on this site seem to think it's okay to exist, it'd be nice to be able to block."

Decent for as far as I got (~level 2?) but it feels like a LIMBO rip-off. It's one thing to be inspired by a great game and have that inspiration shine through, but this plays a little too close to home for it to feel authentic and original.
The music is nice at first but gets very monotonous quickly. It'd be nice to give players the option to mute the music, to mute music without muting sfx, and to also make a menu available to access in-game without completely ending the game. Didn't realize that that's what would happen when I clicked "menu," and now I don't want to play the game again.
Justed wanted to say how much I love this game. I've been looking forward to a sequel/second episode since it was first announced that The House Abandon would be one of multiple episodes. Absolutely riveting and spooky game with a great existential twist. I really, really hope a second is in production, but if not, I'm just happy you made this one! Thank you!
This is such a great game! I love the music and how beautiful the general look and feel of the game is even in (and possibly due to) its simplicity. I do wish there was the ability to change background/fx volumes; the fx is so loud compared to the background music.
This is such a fantastic game. I love how you really throw us in without much to go on, leading to--at least, with me--a very fitting false sense of security and inevitable failure. As you'll read from my other comments I failed in the first run-through, but after restarting with some strategies in mind I did much better. I'm an environmentalist and vegan, a far cry from the way I grew up: totally apathetic and skeptical of global warming thanks to a heavily conservative, Fox-News-obsessed- family. I really got into this game and will more than likely return to it to see how quickly I can save the world again (lol). I hope this helps to inform other people about how important it is that we help change things, and soon. But I do think it would be much more realistic (and helpful to the cause) to highlight how animal agriculture has greater impacts on anthropogenic global warming than coal and gas-fueled transportation. (The name is gimmicky, but the data is tried and true: Cowspiracy is a documentary available on Netflix and all the sources are listed on cowspiracy.com/facts. I highly recommend it!)
One thing I struggled with as far as mechanics go: I played this in-browser on my Mac and a large part of the right side of the screen is entirely cut off when in full-screen mode. If I wanted to read what different "power ups" (so to speak) would do, I'd have to exit from full screen and scroll over. I also didn't realize there was a pause button until halfway through my second game because of this lol.
Just small things. Overall, absolutely excellent game. Thanks so much for it!
I know this is an old comment, but I hope you see this all the same--or at least came to realize what I did.
At first I, too, thought that it was some nihilistic art piece about how we're just generally fucked. I had been in the green as far as Metric tonnage goes, and with CO2 PPM, but I was still in the red with the total anomaly temp! But I found that if I kept planting more trees, eventually I gained enough of a weighted ratio that the anomaly started to decrease in temperature, finally. The problem is, an hour and a half isn't enough time to get a real feel for the game. I had to restart after I messed up pretty badly and had hit a point of no return (so of course I ruined my chances to get to game over quickly and see what the bad ending looked like lol) and began the new game in earnest. I logged abooout three hours or so from start to "all green", and I was playing pretty quickly. It was 2071 when I started decreasing PPM and tonnage, but it wasn't until ~2130 that I started decreasing in global temp/anomaly.
Patience is a virtue. :) Hope you went on to find success!
Better yet: the ability to enact a reproduction limit on humans à la China's only-two legislation and the U.S.'s 1960's only-two fad. The game's meat ban and the Sanctuary option does plenty as far as manipulation of nonhuman species, which is apropos because humans are the root of global warming, not nonhuman animals. We know now that animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the entire global transportation industry, and the most important thing we could do as far as immediate benefit to the amelioration of global warming would be to stop eating all animals, their breastmilk, and calcified periods. With this in mind, it would actually be more accurate (albeit complicated) to introduce methane to the game, and/or a greater decrease in CO2 levels with the enactment of the meat ban.
Absolutely phenomenal game! I loved how spooky it was, the soundtrack was ace, and the semi-solipsistic exploration was delightful. Looking forward to seeing what else NoCode comes out with! (Played on Mac.)
