Created a new topic Intriguing Start!

Hey! Thanks for grabbing hold of me on Twitter, I would've missed this otherwise!

Just wanna say straight off the bat that this game has a charm to it, and the characters are well-structured, I really want to see what happens as this story goes on! I love multiple choice chat situations as well, and though I never stray down the dark side too often with what I pick it's nice to have the option!

I'd love to maybe see a couple of maybe puzzles involved somewhere down the line, or at least some item combination stuff to keep the brain activated a little bit haha! But if that's not the route you're going down that's fine too. Right now, I just want all of my lingering questions answered when the full thing is out =)

Keep up the great work, really hope you guys hit your funding targets and get to finish this little beauty off!

Ahh, I'm getting flOw / Flower vibes from this. Just wandering around, gradually exploring the landscape. So peaceful, but with little spark of mystery to keep us engaged. Very clever, and very well done.

I really enjoyed this little sneak peek, especially having to figure things out on my own. Love it! Unlocking something new feels so much more rewarding when you have to work so hard for it =) keep up the amazing work, looking forward to the full release!

I happened upon this game by pure coincidence when someone mentioned it on Twitter (cool way to start a story right, involve social media? I'm down with the kids!).

Anyway, I popped over to this page and read through all of the glowing comments, and just had to experience this for myself.

Before I even start, I do have to acknowledge some (probably pretty obvious) things:

1- I'm not a lesbian

2- I'm not even a girl

3- I'm also not asian

4- I don't like baseball

So you know, you may well be wondering what the heck I would see in a game like this. Let me tell you what I saw. Pure amazingness. Excellent humour, fantastic writing, sugary sweet cute characters (even the potentially homicidal ones) and unadulterated bittersweet perfection.

This may well be my favourite visual novel / adventure game of the year. I got totally absorbed in it, found myself playing for hours without realizing it had been that long. And now I'm at the end... and I don't quite know what to do with my life now. It's like I've been living their life all day and I'm not quite ready to stop.

Never stop making games, because we all need this kind of joyous, crazy, wonderful, sappy kinda love in our lives!

This is so darn beautiful. I loved every second of it! The off-the-wall characters, the colourful backgrounds, the heartfelt moments. Everything works so well, and I was genuinely sad when I hit the end of the demo.

I really hope you hit your funding total for this, because I'd be all over the full game! Even if you don't reach your target I certainly hope you still endeavour to complete this game because you guys deserve the world! Keep up the amazing work =)

Hey Callum, sorry I've been so silent on responding. Life kinda got in the way a little.

Thanks for understanding when it comes to having to use your game as a stopgap, I did really enjoy what was there and wanted to make sure I utilised it the best way I could so I could still use it!

I like to make sure I mention any game's story as written up by the dev, so people know what's going on. Otherwise I'd be making my own nonsense up and the devs would just laugh at me / be annoyed / possibly use my made-up ideas to replace their own story (much less likely). So yeah, no worries, if a dev has put the effort in to actually make a story I'll be sure to mention it!

Gotta say I'm a tad disappointed that indoor plumbing isn't the big plot point. Darn. Guess I'll wait and see then =)

Thanks for watching my weird little playthrough, and thanks for the response!

This was delightfully weird! For me this game is all about the atmosphere, it's very claustrophobic down here, and every step you take just makes you feel even more paranoid that something really bad is gonna happen any second.

The ending caught me off guard, but in a good way! Would love to see more games along this vein, the found footage style gameplay is excellent. Keep up the awesome work!

I love this! In some regards it's pretty simple with respect to gameplay, most of it is storytelling, which is done really well (especially enjoy the wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff!).

The item mixing and puzzles that are there are well made too though, and add that little extra challenge to proceedings. Looking great so far, keep up the awesome work! =)

Hi dev folks! Thought I'd pop a little write-up here since there doesn't seem to be a comment section on the main page!

This game is incredibly hard, but I think we need more games like it. Small margin for error, trial by death, perseverance. Well done on sticking to your incredibly difficult guns on this!

I really hope you hit your target on KS, I've shared the link to your campaign in my YT vid to hopefully get some word around! This game deserves to see the light of day (from the darkness of the dungeons).

Keep up the amazing work, no matter what happens, I'll be keeping a close eye on your progress!

I really enjoyed this (despite my screaming and profanities)!

I would echo Rob's suggestion below about making it a level-based game rather than just the three levels of difficulty you have right now, but other than that this is really well done! I'm looking forward to diving back in and unlocking some of the other characters, and also seeing what you come up with next =)

Keep up the awesome work!

Another fantastic game from you, after being super impressed with He Beat Her, I came here expecting great storytelling and gorgeous visuals and was not disappointed.

Every second of this game builds up to such a good ending (I've only seen two of the four so far, but will be playing through again to see the rest), and it's a really well put together piece of art. Keep up the fantastic work, really looking forward to seeing where you go next =)

I love the concept! A beautifully weird, gorgeously animated puzzle RPG. Definitely unique! The characters are deliciously quirky as well, definitely going to keep my eyes on this one as it progresses =)

Keep up the great work!

This was great! Love the idea, basically Portal but with hacking. The puzzles are well thought-out and executed (and I managed to be terrible at them all haha!)

Honestly, this is top quality, really looking forward to seeing what you come up with next!

Just a short little taster right now, but I love the concept! Hope you build more into this after the Jam and make a whole game of it =)

I did a vid too, sorry about it being interspersed with my 100 subs thanks vlog!

This was a great little gaming experience! Definitely built on sound, which is to its massive benefit. There were a few niggles with the spelling and grammar, but nothing that detracted too much from the overall feel of things.

The story was well told, the jumpscares were effective and not overused and the ending was fabulous (the True End, I mean haha!)

Great work, looking forward to seeing what you come up with next =)

Here's part 1 of my 3 part playthrough too!

Created a new topic Something to build on!

I've played many a zombie game in my time and I have to say this one is... different! In a good way haha! Not too many side-scrolling games kicking around nowadays, and this one was a fun old time. The text is a bit off in places (totally forgivable when English isn't your first language!), but that just made the whole thing more fun in my opinion!

I'd like to see more of the puzzle elements in chapter two, that certainly stood out for me. Really looking forward to seeing what happens next! =) keep up the great work!

Created a new topic Awesome Work!

I love this. So darn much. The retro style, the music, the story... everything! The set-up was great, the humour was slid in there nice and subtly, the array of bizarre characters was a delight, I honestly can't gush about this game enough.

I know this was probably a one shot game (terrible pun, please shoot me), but I'd really love to see more of this wonderfully weird world!

This was so much fun! Every character is just bursting with life (except for the poor chicks that I popped as I ran over them!), the whole concept is so quirky and the entire game looks simply gorgeous.

I can't wait to see what else you pop into this game, even if it's just another five minutes of baking the cake haha! Keep up the great work everyone =)

What a great concept this is! Mixing the search for alien life with domestic drama is not something you see every day, and then when you throw in the panic-inducement of having three ever-decreasing bars (phone battery, health and petrol) it really makes for an intense experience.

Really enjoyed this, and I will be back to try and get some other, better endings than the ones I managed haha! Keep up the amazing work everyone =)

So I went ahead and played level 2, but everything seems to have gone wonky! The save system stopped working, and the battles weren't activating and then when I tried to go back out of the game and back in to play level 3 I couldn't even load up my game or start a new game.

I redownloaded the game and still couldn't get anywhere, so I'm thinking my computer may have done something dumb... but I will try to get the game up and running again so I can play level 3 because even though level 2 didn't work properly for me I still really enjoyed it haha!

Aww, I love this so much! RPGs are my favourite type of game, and although I'm not usually keen on the tactics style having forest creatures as the main characters won me over!

The story is nice and engaging (darn that too cool for school badger crew!) and really reminds me of an old kid's show / comic called The Animals of Farthing Wood? If you've never heard of it look it up, it's eerily similar to some of the traits in this game (in a good way haha!).

I've started recording my quirky little playthrough of the game, and I'll be back to play more for sure. I thought this was awesome, and you all keep up the great work =)

I really didn't expect what I got here! A beat em up that rapidly turns into a horribly sad story, piece by piece. This was excellently done, and really did hit a nerve. Gorgeous.

Created a new topic Excellent!

Wow. Just... wow. At first I thought we were just going on a nice ramble while our friend bored us with jokes, but that uneasiness kept on creeping up the further into the countryside we got.

And what a pay off at the end, excellent! I thoroughly enjoyed this, it was a great experience! Keep up the amazing work =)

Oh I liked this! The game itself looks gorgeous, and having a youngling as the main character is a great idea too, it's not something we see a whole lot of in the horror / thriller genre.

I had a wee bit of trouble with the bridge (as you'll see in my playthrough!), but you know, it was totally worth the effort in the long run, and the whole experience was great (and creepy, mustn't forget creepy).

Keep up the awesome work, really looking forward to seeing more =)

Oh this was so well done! The twists and turns and having the keep replaying to get to the truth was a great touch. Added a nice little bit of intrigue to proceedings =)

I was very impressed with how much depth there was to the game too, considering the minimalist style, I was really hooked on the feel of everything.

All in all a fantastic game, keep up the amazing work =)

Oh this is good. The way the tension slowly builds and you anticipate something happening, every single door becomes more and more of a gamble and a massive event, the sweat starts beading on your forehead and you wonder whether you shouldn't just stop and huddle in the corner of whichever cramped four door room you happen to be in...

This was an excellent, claustrophobic experience and I loved every second of it. Can't wait to see where you take it from here =) keep up the amazing work!

Created a new topic Great so far!

Point and click games are one of my favourite ways to pass some time, and this one is so good! There's that lingering feeling of always being on edge, never quite knowing when something's going to jump out of the shadows at you, mixed with the intuitive puzzles and subtle humour ("a makeover won't improve its looks" was one of my particular favourites) makes for a great all-round experience.

I didn't get all the way through this preview in one go but I may well go back and see if I can figure out what needs to be mixed with what to get this done in the future, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product! Keep up the great work =)

Also, sorry for posting this in multiple places, just wanted to make sure I gave the game reviews and ratings wherever I could find it!

Created a new topic First Look!

So, I really enjoyed what you have so far. When I first started playing things seemed a wee bit clunky, but that's nothing out of the ordinary for an early alpha! As I played more, and picked up a little bit of the story I started getting sucked into the world more and more, and also started noticing how gorgeous the scenery and backgrounds are in the game.

I encountered a couple of bugs, like when I walked right into the ramp near the beginning and then when I managed to get stuck in a rock (classic Mikey, breaking the game!), but on the whole everything ran pretty darn well!

The language I found to be very intriguing. To me it came across as Scottish-esque (I'm nigh-on Scottish myself too), but your write-up about it really was interesting!

I didn't quite make it to the end of the demo though, I think I played myself to death trying to get past everything, but I'm really looking forward to seeing more of this! Keep up the great work =)

This game's got a really good atmosphere, and you definitely left me wanting to know what happens next! Everything ran smoothly for me too, which is always a bonus =)

The creep factor was set up just right, there wasn't just a constant barrage of scares which really left me on edge wondering where the next spook was coming from! Keep up the awesome work, really looking forward to seeing more =)

Ahh, this is such a deep game. I really connected with a lot of the issues being raised, and it really touched me.

I'm looking forward to playing this again when the text error has been corrected, but in the meantime thanks so much for making this, and keep up the great work!

I like them all as in their designs, so I purely meant dislike as in I'm suspicious of them haha! In that regard I wouldn't trust Grayson or Louis as far I could throw them =D

I loves me a good point and click puzzle adventure, and this one is especially intriguing. Building a Saw-esque theme into things worked really well to me, you kept me really on edge during the whole experience. The journals were really well-written and gave me serious chills and I've already decided who I like and don't like (although I'm probably in the wrong camp haha!)

Keep up the great work on this one, really looking forward to seeing and playing the final product =)

This is so well done, the game does a cracking job of oozing retro charm whilst also building up a creep factor in the background. I didn't manage to resolve everything and finish the story (if it ever does finish!), but I had a super fun time playing!

Keep up the amazing work, this was great!

Ah, this was super fun! I still can't believe I scored 87 on my first try and then got progressively worse though, that's just typical me!

This may be a teeny tiny game that takes a minute to play, but the art and sound and style are really good and honestly I played this a lot more times after I'd finished making the video. Keep up the great work, this was awesome!

You know, you've really got something here. One of those rare things, a game that's equal parts frustrating and riveting. I didn't want to stop, even though I lost my mind!

I also enjoyed the "having to figure things out on your own" aspect, learning what everything does and when to use it. If you hold players' hands too much in a game like this I think something would be lost, so definitely keep that aspect =)

All in all I think this is looking really good so far, especially with the nice mysterious story hidden away in the background! Keep up the awesome work, can't wait to see where this goes next!

I really enjoyed this little glimpse into Mechanic 8230! The world you've built is very interesting, and very weird! I didn't quite manage to get to the end of the demo, but I had fun trying and look forward to seeing more =)

Keep up the great work!

I think you made the right choice, adding too much farming into the mix would make it too Harvest Moon-esque, and I like the idea of running a workshop rather than a farm in this instance.

The suggestions I've seen below about having an assistant running a farm while you reap the benefits seem like a good direction to go though.

I loved this and I hated it at the same time. That's when you know you've made a good game haha! Every time I got my buttocks handed to me I just dived back in and tried again, and having replayability is a fine asset indeed =)

Seriously though, I didn't hate it at all, the whole thing looks gorgeous, plays amazingly (even better with a controller I'd imagine but I like to make my life difficult!) and the little nugget of story piqued my interest enough for me to want to see more. Keep up the excellent work, I really hope you hit your Kickstarter goal!

Posted in Looking Good!

So I popped back in to wrap things up for the demo, you've definitely got a strong game going here, and I'll be keeping a keen eye out for updates =)

This was so darn good! The whole time I was playing I felt I was doing something subversive yet important. And then we got to the end and yeah... wow!

I loved the way you mixed the skill games with the story, really kept me invested in persevering! Keep up the awesome work =)
