We really appreciate your understanding~ 💞 Good news is that we already switched over to the new game engine for Somnium Eleven so we've already finished developing the skip functionality for the upcoming game. And so far through all of the play testing, it's working smoothly so we hope you'll enjoy that feature once the new game is released 😉

Hello! The game's serialization ended in March 2021 with an epilogue that was released at that time. There are 13 full chapters with 4 romanceable routes and an epilogue for each route with a good or neutral ending that is included in the game. (Please see the below screenshot of the game that shows the last few chapters)

We recommend updating your app through the official Apple App Store and or Google Play Store to ensure your app is most up-to-date from the March 2021 release. Any outside apps from Google or Apple are not supported by Nochi and are not endorsed for safety reasons including malware. Please ensure to download the official published version from Google or Apple.

Thank you for your interest and support!

Hello there! Thank you for your comment and we're very happy to hear that you like the Sifting Thyme characters ~ ✨

Unfortunately we're not sure when we will be able to publish the skip function. The function has been on our list for a while and we've made a slot for the capability in the "phone menu" button where you will see a missing button in the group of four on the right - that blank spot was intended for the skip button. 

However, we had so much issues with Renpy since it's not completely mobile friendly - especially with our modification -  so we haven't been able to figure out a bug-free skip solution yet. Currently, the fix would require us to completely remake Sifting Thyme in a new game engine. But unfortunately we have only one programmer on the Nochi team so we're not able to tackle everything in the time that we wish we could as we're also working on our upcoming game Somnium Eleven as well 😔 Many apologies!!! We hope that we can get support to hopefully get to the skip function 🙏

This is super delayed, but THANK YOU! We really appreciate your ratings and your comment as we're a small team of three so this means a lot to us 💞 Every positive feedback really helps our team!

As for the skip / auto function, this feature has been on our list for a while.

We're so glad that it worked! And no inconvenience at all, feel free to reach out to our support email or message us here if there is anything else :)

That is correct~ you will get full access to the core storyline! The game is currently a monthly serialization with one chapter released every month - we are currently on Ch 10. But we anticipate that the core story should be wrapped up a few months into 2021.

Thanks for your interest in Sifting Thyme!

Thank you so much for your support on ko-fi!! ❤️

Could you please contact us at support@nochistudios.com with some screenshots and let us know where you are located? We will try our best to help you!

Ahh! Don't be sorry! It's an excellent question and we really appreciate your interest and support 💖

Hello! Thank you for your support and checking out our game :)

The year 2 button was intentional upon the game launch back in April 2020. Since the game is a monthly serialization - similar to shoujo manga format - we didn't have a clear timeline of when the storyline would end so we had a placeholder for the 2nd year for potential future content.

At this time, you should be able to see Chapter 0 through Chapter 8 on your iphone, accessible via Year 1. In the next update (sometime this week), Chapter 9 will be released and we will actually be removing the 2nd year placeholder as Ch 9 will have romantic routes locked down.

Hope that helps :)

Thanks,

Nochi

Unfortunately the way the game was developed is causing issues to get it embedded as a downloadable. However, the game is still an on-going story and we would like to port it one day to non-mobile platforms once completed!

The original intention was to have the game demo available when the itch.io page was made. The game ended up being redeveloped and it wouldn’t work as an embedded downloadable. But we wanted to keep the profile with all the game and character info. However, the game is still an on-going story and we would like to port it one day to non-mobile platforms once completed!
