I'm using PipeWire and WirePlumber, if that's relevant.

Plays pretty good there, after some controller setup tinkering.

The app asks me if I want to launch "nw" or "index.html".

If I launch index.html, I get the same thing I would if I just opened that file directly, with the same problem, only there's music now.

If I launch nw, it takes me straight into the game. I assume this is what I'd get if I clicked "play" and it worked.

It works better - I get a game screen instead of nothing, and I can click on the README button to read the readme. But when I click on the play button, nothing happens.

Here's the current console log:

city.js:3111 Uncaught (in promise) DOMException: play() can only be initiated by a user gesture.

city.js:2489 Uncaught ReferenceError: RectBackground is not defined at Game.initialize (city.js:2489) at App.update (stdMain.js:16) at Object.update (stdMain.js:30) at tickFun (stdMain.js:41)

Also, the credits button is getting a 404 because it's trying to open "ATTRIBUTION.txt" instead of "ATTRIBUTION.html".

I'll try the itch app and let you know.

(1 edit)

index.html is just a blank page when I open it in my browser. 

I'm using the Linux version, and I'm getting these console errors:

DevTools failed to parse SourceMap: [path/to/game/]the_quiet_sleep/

city.js:5 Uncaught ReferenceError: STEAM is not defined 

     at city.js:5

stdMain.js:6 Uncaught TypeError: GameProperties is not a constructor

It looks neat and charmingly minimalist, but I'm disappointed by the requirement to use drag-and-drop to import stuff, which I literally can't do in my terminal-focused desktop environment that deliberately lacks a graphical file manager. I'd hope I could do the standard thing and pass a file in as a command line argument, but it doesn't work. 

I know, I know, I'm a weirdo, but people also sometimes just don't have access to a mouse for whatever reason.

I also wish there was a way to disable the dialog that pops up whenever I start the program asking to add desktop icons and an application menu entry. Those things aren't even relevant to my weirdo desktop environment, so it's doubly obnoxious to have to click "no" every single time.

Short, simple, relaxing. A tad repetitive. I dig the Moebius vibe.
Would absolutely play more games where I get to have those excellent hands.

Good game! Fun and interesting.
