Nice map. The muted colors are alot better too. I recommend also darkening the green in the title screen so it looks more like night time.

Thanks for the reply. Good to know what others think. Yes this is more of an inactive media which runs in the background while you read a book, think about stuff, or just relax. You can choose your favorite setting and there are a few things that are clickable indoors. I wanted to make something like Pixel Fireplace but free, with a higher resolution and especially with better simulation of the burning process. I was that thinking of adding a wood collecting and survival part to the game and that the player must start the fire manually. I may add that in the future.
I'd like people to see my game collections, but I don't like that they are displayed on the same page as my personal games. I'd prefer to have an extra page for uploaded games and game collections.
Wow thanks for your story from behind the curtain. I like the FactoryCo idea, I didn't see that. I know you don't intend to "parasite" off of Factorio. Your game is clearly unique. Also Factorio will surely get some traffic from you too! Good game names are often hard to find.
I don't care what a game dev has between their legs. I like good games.
As a solo dev it's hard for me to imagine how one could be opressed.
The best way to deal with male-centric ("sexist"?) games is for girls/women to make own games how they like them.
You can't change the male-centric past where we come from, and you can't force instant equality. It takes some time for things to level out naturaly. Maybe a generation or two.
There are games that I have finished and am very proud of. Then there are some games which are work in progress, scrappy or otherwise lacking.
Maybe each user could have an own page like they do now plus a backstage page for game jams, WIP, and games that aren't as good as the others. I would find that to be way cool :]
DeviantArt has it too! ("scraps")
I like to concentrate on my breathing when I have nothing to do, or when I have to do simple dumb work. Also when I go jogging often get a little meditation going on. Currently I'm working on a game where you stare into the campfire.
That small dab of orange somehow makes it look quite colorful. Nice style. Excellent presentation.
I find the shooting out of the mouth strange. Cool head shake though.
I'm looking forward to see where this is heading.
Why no try replacing it with your own art? Doesn't have to be perfect. Mabe better than not releasing at all.
Or if you are lucky you'll find sth that fits at opengameart with a CC0 licence.
A new version is up!
Small performance increase. (More to come)
Added another zoom camera which zooms in even further.
I'm thinking of having the mouse scroll-wheel control the camera. Not sure yet.
Ash doesn't float anymore, and can fall at a higher speed.
You can change the wall colour in the first room by clicking on the left side of the screen. (beige, red, blue, green, grey)
Were you playing the HTML5 version? Because the downloadable version is much smoother. (Made using Gamemakers native YoYo Compiler)
I'll see if I can find ways to speed it up. Or maybe I'll have to make it download only.
