God, that's so sweet. Thank you very much! I can't tell you how much your support means to me. Just, thank you!

Awww, thank you! Amir Story's next, and I hope you like it just as much. :-)

Thank YOU so much! :-)

No, not at all. To be honest, you're not the only one who had that reaction. (I think the fact that the gag was slightly different in the original version is really working against the joke as it is now. Makes it seem like a mistake rather than a visual gag.)

Wow. Thank you ever so much! What lovely things to say, all of them. (And if you throw me a link to your artwork, I'd love to see it. I always enjoy discovering beautiful new things!)

That's supposed to be the joke -- that there are so many things to complain about they can't all fit on the screen. ^^; Guess it's not landing all that well, though.

What it shows on the page. It's Aloners + new background art, new UI, and a new extra story.

Hi there!

Thank you so much for supporting Aloners (Redux), and for being so sweet. I hope you enjoyed the new chapter. :-)

Send me an email at sonnet009@gmail.com and we'll sort something out. :-)

Looking into it, I am pretty sure this isn't an issue with the files themselves (I can see through my Analytics that other purchasers are able to download them) so I think this might be an issue on your end. My best advice would be to troubleshoot using the advice here. I would also suggest trying to download another file of similar size, just to make sure it really is only this game that is a problem. Let me know if you have any luck!

Heya!

  • Does the message give any additional info at all or is it simply "download failed"? 
  • Are you able to download other, completely unrelated files? Is the problem only with Aloners (Redux)?

I'm glad you're excited! And I hope you enjoy. :-)

Oh, wow. Thank you for this! You have no idea how happy it's made me on an otherwise very tense day.

I'm especially glad that you enjoy the MC. She can be difficult to write sometimes, trying to make her feel both developed but also something of a player avatar. So I'm constantly worried that she'll be considered either too blank or too unrelatable! ^^;

Hey there! You know, I've never really considered that possibility. I don't think I would ever turn these characters' stories into traditional novels, since they're designed to be interactive. But, I have to admit, I would love to write something more in-depth and personal to me... Don't know if it will ever happen, but if it does -- thank you for the encouragement. :-)

Aw, thanks for making my day! :-D

That's correct! You will be able to download the full version for free. (Also, at this stage, a Steam version has not been confirmed.)

Unfortunately, that feature isn't available in the individual routes. 

(And thank you!)

Perhaps the full version of Wilder will be released on Steam, but that's not 100% decided yet.

Thank you! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the drama -- and the parts where I did my best to tug at your heartstrings. ;-)

Wow, that's high praise -- thank you! And I'll take your constructive criticism on board.

Hopefully you'll enjoy discovering how the protagonist finds herself in various different scenarios depending on the route. I'll say that, for Royo's Story, you do meet her before Umar -- in a very interesting way. ;-)

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed and honest criticism of Bahadur's Story.

Most things, I can see your point -- but I do stand by the story. The main character is young, and she's written to be young. She and Bahadur do have an unhealthy dependency on each other (like you mentioned, she is his "purity token", his opinions are coloured by being conditioned to feel "shameful" and "unclean") but they are supposed to be flawed, pitiful characters who, by the game's end, have at least a hope of growing together and making a better future for themselves.

Of course, if that's not the feeling you got at all, then that's my failure as a writer, and I will seek to improve -- not just in future routes and games, but by looking back at Bahadur's Story and seeing if/where I can strengthen the backbone of the narrative.

It's probably one of the hardest things I've ever read -- to have Bahadur be called "Uncle Tom". I am genuinely mortified that this is a take someone could have, and obviously the absolute last comparison I'd intend to be drawn to this character. Though I would argue that breaking free of his servility (once admitting that it is in fact his own defense mechanism against the parts of himself that scare him) is a core part of Bahadur's story and character development -- not a reinforcement of the "servile minority" stereotype. But, regardless, this teaches me to cast an even more critical eye over my own characters, to ensure that they do not come off as unintentionally offensive.

Ultimately, I can completely understand why this game does not work for you, though I stand by it. I will certainly take some of the points you've made and aim to improve in areas I feel are lacking or misaimed, but ultimately Wilder is what it is.

Thank you for your feedback. It has been very valuable.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for playing, and for taking the time to give feedback. (And we could all do with a little more Baha beefcake, this is true.)

What an incredible piece of feedback! Thank you for taking the time to write so many of your thoughts -- it's no exaggeration that this kind of thing makes my whole day. :-D

On the subject of human-djinn babies, canon is canon. But, hey, that's the beauty of fanon, isn't it! ;-) And regarding MC's hair -- it's actually a deep brown, but sometimes the lighting of a scene can make it look green.

Thanks again! This made me giddy to read!

Awww, I'm glad you enjoyed both routes so far. :-) Thank you for the lovely words.

Aw, I'm glad that the story felt different and fresh, and I'm also glad (sorry!) that you were in tears! Thanks so much for playing.

Aw, I'm glad! Thank you for playing.

:-D

Thank you very much for this feedback. I'm glad Bahadur's Story grabbed you. :-) That's really the best I can ask for.

Haha! Hope you enjoy (enjoyed?) it. Hope it was worth the wait.

I'm very pleased that you enjoyed Bahadur's Story more than you were maybe expecting to. :-) And I'm also very pleased to finally be able to give players some answers to the mystery of the shah's death.

Thank you for your support! (And if you ever draw that pin-up, please don't hesitate to send me a link. ;-))

Awww, I'm glad you enjoyed Bahadur so much. :-) Hopefully you like Ran, too!

And, you know, both Anisa and her cows have turned out to be pretty popular. Heehee.

Happy New Year!

Hi! Thanks for posting this. I thought having a message board would be better than comments, since I could sticky important info. But, uh, I think I made some rookie mistakes that I'm now trying to fix -- for example, I've now added a feedback thread!

I take your point about the transition to Bahadur's route. In the full version (all 5 routes collected together) that will be the branching point for everyone's stories. That means there may be some tweaks as each route comes out and the prologue is slightly altered to better suit the branching at that point.

But I'm glad that you enjoyed Bahadur, regardless! (And I am so, so, so late, but I hope you had a great Christmas! Here's to the new year!)

Post them here and I'll make the corrections for the next build.

Any feedback? Lemme have it!

If you want to make a VN, I definitely recommend going for it! I am also a chronic un-finisher, but making these games has really helped me get over that hurdle.

Besides Ran and Bahadur, there will also be a route for Royo (who you have met) and Amir and Jamal (who you have not). There is more information on all the love interests in the Wilder tag on my two tumblrs, if you're interested.

Thank you ever so much for this long, detailed feedback! I am delighted that you enjoyed Ran's Story -- and very grateful that you took the time to say so. Bahadur's Story should be coming out before the end of the year, and I can only hope that you enjoy him, too. :-)

Wow, thank you! :-) Such kind words.
