This game could have lot of potential, either a 4 person couch game where three are the ghosts and one is the pacman, or just a single player game where there's upgrades for the ghosts and every level the pacman becomes smarter/faster/etc
You guys should at least try to make it on steam and see if you can get support there. I think a lot of people feels betrayed because of so many kickstarter and itch.io scams, and most only commit once a game shows a decent amount of daily updates on steam. If the kickstarter doesn't make it all the way maybe you could still try and make it work as a early access game. I'm sure a lot of people would support you guys there, just like they did with stationeers. I feel like this game is great and has the potential it needs to be a great seller, but just lacks the correct platform to have support for it.
You know.. this probably has nothing to do with the game, but it would be really cool if enemy ships were made with modules like your own ship, and you could aim where to shoot being able to scavenge ships for parts once the enemy crew is killed.
I think what's important is how dedicated can you be to your own game. Even if the game is unplayable by the time you release it. (And early access is expected to be pretty unplayable) Weekly/monthly updates and just activity from the dev part is what really brings people around your game. And how the community starts to grow around it. Would be too if the game had mod support from the beginning since it's way harder to add later on, and interact with the steam workshop and other options you get from playing on steam!
So.. I kept getting boarders stuck outside of my walls, and breaking inside my ship so i had the bright idea of putting floors with interior turrets and that worked until one of the boarders destroyed my turret then decided to sit at that floor outside my ship.. (This made the combat never end and had to restart the game and start from scratch).
Also, the game crashes when you use the move and rotate ship clicker thing.
New version, new error when generating starmap.

I played the game for a while and i don't know what kind of feedback you'd expect.
All you can do right now is put oil on tanks and move the ship around, cannons dont seem to be functional
The ship is a weird entity, if you make a ship and then you chop it in half, its still considered a whole entity and you can move it around and steering wheel will respond to propellers even if they aren't connected one with another.
There is no way to make a new ship if you want to start from scratch, either leave at least one block or restart the game because you cant make a new boat from 0.
For people who is going to try out the game, dont let trees jumpscare you when you chop them down.
For what i seen so far the game doesnt really show much potential, compared to many games where you can create your own ships and they have proper physics, i understand you guys might be looking foward to work towards that, but right now there's nothing to do.
The graphics are okay, night time and being under water is terrying. At night because your whole screen turns black but you can still see everything, and it doesnt really seem to do anything with lighting.
Being underwater is just this infinite sudden dark blue screen and makes you feel like you're falling off the world.
I consider this to be a pre-alpha
I dont know how real plants work but at least here it would be cool if you had deposits, like a tile where you can drop 25+ water or sugar maybe, and if there is a transport tile next to it, the water slowly moves towards the tile, because otherwise the only way i seen to manually put water on transport conveyors is spamming 1 while you move along it. The idea would be to have a place where you drop it all and then it moves on the transport tile.
And sugar is kind of "Light" in the game right now, i really wish they had little tiles to see them, maybe make filter tiles so you can move water and sugar on the same transport but with the filter they're moved to different parts.
The other idea is having a different kind of transport, if sugar is pretty much energy then we need something like "electric cables" to move it around, not really sure but would be nice.
I still think that if you could make this game into a .io game where each players makes they own plant and they all grow up nicely or fight eachother for sunlight or just feeding eachother (The plant world can be pretty brutal) it would make a great game!.
If there was more content i would totally pay money for it.
Here's some feedback
- You can't see sugar (I was expecting white dots, just for reference maybe?)
- You cant remove transportation tiles.
Make your plant too tall/big and it's going to die because of all the sugar it needs, make it too small and you will die of boredom before you ever reach the 1000 sugar goal. Medium size is the key!.
Im sad to hear that, For me in the early version i played long time ago provinces were pretty small and expanding was harsh, it was better to get the most profit of every province before moving to the next one.
Maybe add a VERY expensive building to increase infraestructure for a small amount, that would require a decent time for anyone to actually fill a entire province with buildings, just for those who enjoy making giant citys?
Talking about quality, its impossible to upgrade tradehouses, brewerys, and i never found a spot where i could make a garden, monuments seem to be the best way to go about happiness, who doesnt love a bunch of symbols carved in stone and wood right?
I also notice a lot of lag in the game once i get further on it, and i feel like the game freezes every time it has to make long paths for the traders and raiders to move.
1) When i upgraded the second anvil i didnt get a extra worker, but i started with 2. (Maybe the second anvil was meant to be 2 not 3)
2) When i went back inside the house i appeard on the grey area and was impossible to leave and had to quit the game.
Well, i made it to the second level of the dungeon, considering the early stage i'd think thats a good start.
The game concept is good, the art is great.
The UI seems too small, Most of the screen is empty while you could have a bigger map and seeing what's going on easier.
The music is relaxing and catchy.
I can't tell about any of the upcoming features, except it seems you can have a melee and a ranged weapon both together, but it totally depends in the rest of the game to know how viable and balanced would that be, considering arrows will be scarce and hard to come by.
So far it seems everyone moves at the same time, there is no faster or slower. A game called Elona has a speed-based turn system. Where time passes based on the player speed. If you have 100 speed and a enemy has 50, you'll move twice as fast as them. Just a example.
Looks promising at least!.
You should add ads on the mobile version whenever someone starts or loads a new game, and add a option to disable it. That should give you a little income and i'd gladly watch those ads to show my support!
Make sure to check the last bug.
Here is where i placed a villager and dissapear (died?) i tried placing others there and nothing happened. My only guess is there is a slight chance that you move a viking in a way that if you release him he'll ignore colission. A while after that he appeard on the other side of the mountain, there was a exclamation sign at the base of the mountain but he was still dead. When i used the camera glitch to look under the map there wasnt a dead body or a stuck viking, or anything.
Here is some updated bugs!
When you click on one of your vikings the camera ignores collision and goes throught the floor, specially on a village like mine where there are multiple levels of terrain.
Aside from that, this is the little, pretty landscape i managed to make.
This wasnt easy, since every time you flatten the land you have to click again on the menu, and then also use the scroll wheel to get it in the right size. There is also the problem that you cant make hills, and if you try to connect two different terrains with different height you just make weird flat mountains.
You should be able to use multiple shapes and the tool should remember your preferences. Also a + - UI to change the size. And most important of all, being able to drag around the tool as you flat the terrain so you can just keep doing it instead of clicking again on it every time.
The most important problem with land is that you can't smoothly flatten terrain. As you can see the best you can aim for is use an already placed hill as a connector as you flatten the land around it. Because otherwise there is no way to move aroudn once you flatten the gruond.
Vikings sometimes fight eachother to build the same building. And in the case one gets to build it first while the other is going, the animation of the building being just placed and then built is re-done by the second viking, didn't see it cause any problems still.
Another problem was a viking building a farm, he was stuck building it while another viking was already able to farm on it. The soultion was moving the viking, then he went to build the farm again but completed it this time.
As for the last and game breaking glitch i found. Here my game froze. It didn't crash, but froze. I'm unable to do anything, not even move my mouse, but my windows doesn't tell me the game isnt responding. It's like the game actually froze and not the program. The last thing i did before this happened was build those little huts on the right side. I was really hoping for making a huge village and share it with new players to feel motivated about the game.
Edit: Nevermind i was able to save in a new game!
That explains why i kept messing up . And yeah! I think the AI would also get kinda laggy if you have many roads, instead of a single one that keeps growing! I'll play again and see if i can reproduce it, i also noticed save games are broken? I tried to save a game but then i was unable to load it.
I've seen a bunch of problems and glitchs that are probably gonna be fixed soon!
1) Roads seem to have a weird offset when you try to make a road over another existent one if you place a flag on top of the last road you make the green line appears next to the flag and not under it, it would be nice if when you try to make roads you can simply use the flags you already placed and connect the roads easily.
2) The smoothing tool is really nice, but i think it should be only possible to use it before settling, since otherwise it seems a bit too strong once the game started.
3) When you make flat mountains or just high grounds vikings tend to get sucked by earth and get bugged, which also freezes your camera.
Keep the good work!
Some suggestions i have.
Hunger and morale for military units so you can't deploy them forever. Morale always been a key factor in any battle, units with a poor morale fight poorly. The further away you're from one of the zones you control the lower your morale is (Like 5-10% morale loss for zone). This would make units defending they homes stronger, as they normally are. Ways to prevent morale could be adding captain units (Frail units that boost morale for they units). And maybe slow wagons with provisions that can be used to feed your units when they're far away from your base?. Would be awesome to have a raiding system where you can steal most the masklings and other enemies just like they do with you.
