Happy new year! 

There will be a small bugfix patch coming early this week, but the next major update will likely be end of January / beginning February!

I'm so sorry because I couldn't finish the game loool it was too scary to me (which I think is a good thing)

The way the PULSE system worked and the sound design that goes with that is really awesome, it makes it feel like every time you use it there could be a jumpscare. On top of that, since the player has to trigger it themselves the tension and timing is placed onto our shoulders.

I ended up watching a gameplay video instead. (and I'm relieved it seemed like there seems to be no actual monster called the Darkness that stalks you throughout the game haha.)

I do think the game gets a bit dark / how to get an idea of where things are and where you are. So maybe some type of map could help, or make the echolocation slightly brighter? But this is also personal taste since it may be that the disorientation is part of the experience.

Thanks for the game and great work!

This game is really fun and I see a whole lot of potential in it! It's challenging, has some charm, and I see a lot of areas for expansion.

It reminds me somewhat of the board game The 7th Continent (if you've ever tried that!), about discovering tiles and harsh survival conditions.

The UI / UX and gameplay already feels pretty good, so I only have minor nitpick,  thoughts, and potential ideas for expansion.

- I love that everything is a single click to do, very quick and satisfying to play with. 

- Would be cool to see a "preview" of the resulting food / water / time whenever you hover on something. (When playing I tend to ignore the numbers written on the tiles while focusing on "what resources I have left", so if the bottom UI bar could also reflect the costs it would be nice)

- I wasn't sure how to close the tutorial tips at the very start (not a major issue but I did accidently start with picking up a tile.

- I think there is potential to have some really cool upgrades (if they don't already exist and I just haven't seen them). Some ideas - you have the option to jump over an empty tile, backtracking 1 tile costs no time, villages spawn more frequently, if you run out of water / food, you can use the other resource to cover for it, new tiles dropped are guaranteed to have 1 animal, etc. 

- I agree with the other commentor that creating islands is subject to a lot of RNG. II have a few more ideas that could help with that. Could allow the option to rotate the islands, which would help a lot with those "single tile gaps". A more drastic change would be to let the player know what the next tile will look like, tetris style (and maybe with the option to refresh / discard the tile), so they can plan ahead a tiny bit.

- In the style of 7th Continent (and a whole lot of work to implement), i'd love to see multi-tile quests. Maybe a village needs help catching some wolf nearby (and another compass marker would pop up), or you find a lost villager and can bring them back to their village for a reward, etc, etc. I think that would be fun but understand that it's a whole lot of work haha.

- Very occasionally I go a bit fast and accidently start creating an island instead of moving and the current design doesn't allow us to cancel that action (since know we know what the island looks like!). Some awkwardness there but not sure what could help with that. 

But overall it is really awesome, you have a great eye for simplistic design and I see a bright future for this game! Keep it up! 

:3 appreciate you so much! and thanks for playing

Ahhhhh so sorry about that!! If it makes you feel better there isn't *that* much of a difference from 0.1.5b from a new player perspective, so I wouldn't mind seeing the video anyway haha

It's fixed now in 1.1.5a! 

Hey all! 

The localization bug for the people with French or Spanish system languages that gives "No Translation Found" re-appeared in 1.1.5  - the fix will be in 1.1.5a! 

Sorry about that!

Thanks so much! 

We're still trying to make it even better, but glad you are enjoying it already! 

Thank you so much for playing and for the feedback! We'll see what we can do!

Heya! The fix should be up in the newest patch :) Let us know if it's still a problem! 

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for letting us know! The fix will be in the next patch that will release sometime today!

Hey all! We're happy to release the free prototype demo for our upcoming game Star★Vaders!

It's  a turn-based strategy game in which you pilot a mecha armor to fight swarms of alien invaders in a roguelite campaign of grid-based tactical card battles.

You can check it out here: https://starvaders.itch.io/starvaders

Thanks, and let us know what you think! (of our page, or of the game!)
