Thank you so much for the kind words! It was definitely a big priority of mine to make the villagers have existing relationship, as if they have a life outside of your own. I'm so glad you're appreciating them!

Just wanted to follow up and say this bug will definitely be fixed for next time. Thanks again for reporting it.

You're not crazy! The framework for village projects / etc. exists in the game, but it's far from finished. The next release (coming next week) should do more to address this aspect of the game. You'll be able to improve the general store, library, and the town itself. (plus your home, of course)

Time *should* pause whenever you're in menus, including dialogue. However! It seems there's at least one bug preventing that from always working. Sorry about that! It was definitely not my intention for you to feel rushed. I'll fix that in the next release.

I totally get what you mean about time adding pressure and stress. It's a delicate balancing act of making days both not too short and not too long.

Oh, neat! All the in-game music is from Josh Woodward who puts out Creative Commons music. His acoustic tracks are wonderful and really fit the relaxing mood I'm going for.

Love this review! Thank you so much for taking the time to play Village Monsters and to write this up.

Hello! This seems to be a common issue with downloaded games on Mac. It seems related to security on MacOS. Itch.io suggests using their App (https://itch.io/app) to rectify this issue.

Unfortunately I'm unable to do much from my end, but I've had lots of reports of this solution working for others, so please give it a shot.

Really appreciate the kind words! <3

Best place would be Discord: https://discord.gg/NaNc7Tr

There's a Bug Report channel

Hey, just wanted to follow up that this bug has been fixed in the patch I released yesterday (v0.75.2). Let me know if you continue to have any issues, and thank you so much for reporting it!

So sorry you're experiencing this. I'm trying to track down the source of this bug. What is your OS? Windows, Mac or Linux?

Do you recall when or where it freezes? Is this a new game, or an existing save file?

I'm really sorry about that. Unfortunately, those are the requirements to run any GameMaker Studio 2 game in Linux, which means I'm unable to change them

This bug will be fixed in the next update (releasing sometime tomorrow)

Thanks for your bug reports, and also for your kind words! Glad to have you along for the ride :) There's a lot of work to do between here and version 1.0, but it'll be well worth it.

The best place to report bugs would likely be Discord (http://bit.ly/ChattyMonsters) or my email (josh@warpdogs.com), but I make an effort to do a little "patrol" of comments and forum posts every couple of days, so no matter where you post I should stumble upon it eventually

In terms of the bugs you reported, I should be able to get them all fixed up for the next big update (next week). Thank you so much for reporting them!

No offense taken! He is pretty lame. The answer is yes, you'll be able to customize your look and gender at some point. It just requires a lot of sprite work, so I've been putting it off in favor of other things, but it IS coming before 1.0

Not currently, but villager romance is a frequently requested feature and I plan on adding it at some point.

Love & Respect!!

A little bit of both columns :) It is possible to use them, but it's not very intuitive. Once equipped, you'll be able to see spots out in the world where you can place them.

They still need to be fleshed out a great deal more

Shoot, sorry to hear that, but there is no way to rebind keys at the moment. However, there is full gamepad support. Is that an option for you?

This is an unbelievable comment. Thank you so much for sharing this. I'm going to print it out and tack it next to my computer so that I can always remember why games are important to make and play. Thank you.

Can you let me know what your screen resolution is? It should definitely not be cutting off menus!

I'm happy to offer Village Monsters

Hey, thanks!

That's great to hear! Hope you keep having fun with it <3

This is such a kind thing to say. Thank you so much!

Thanks for the kind words!!

Thank you so much for the detailed impressions! I generally agree that villagers are too chatty too quickly, so I'm working on a system where when you're still "strangers" they're a lot more reserved. Thanks for playing!

Really appreciate the feedback on the demo!! Most of those things should definitely be fixed for the next release, but I took a bunch of notes all the same.

There is still that limit. I've heard a few complaints so I may relax it in the future, but I can't go giving it all away yet!!

Coming later this year ~~

Thanks!

Aww, thank you so much!!

I plan on making a more updated demo available soon. Perhaps by June? Trust me, you wouldn't want the older demos... the game has come a long way.

I'll make a post once it's available <3

You're about to make me cry. Thank you so much for the kind words!
