What quality does the yeast have and do you have any negative buffs which affect trading rates? Does other stuff like wood sell?

Posted in Help!

You should be able to sell back the yeast, but you can also just forage and collect some resources like wood from cutting trees and sell these resources to the Hawker. :)

Thanks for the offer and when I plan to do a Mac release, I need a Mac by myself (as I don't want to rely on somebody for every little update ^^), but testers would be of course nice to have! :)

As others stated, the controls felt a bit off, but nothing which could be fixed in a post-compo version. If you make one, you should also ellaborate on the stealth and surviving mechanic, because that's a really fun part!

I got fired. Again. And again.

I enjoyed the game and the artstyle. As others said, the jumping felt sometimes a bit off. Anyway a very polished entry with a fast-paced endfight :)

Very fun and addictive gameplay - and the style is lovely, too. I hope you continue working on this, adding more cards and perhaps a deck building mechanic?

The graphics look awesome. Works well as an interactive experience and the atmosphere you create here is fantastic. If you have the time, add sounds and music! :)

I like the feeling of the glitchy graphics and sounds. The game itself is very addictive, but I required your explanations in the comment section to play the game. The first time I was helpless but as I got it, I had a lot of fun!

Lovely style and nice use of the theme. Works well as a parody and I really had to smile. The only thing I can complain is that entering a new room with both is somehow tedious because I have to switch them.

Congratulations for making a game! If you want to improve your game, I would start with adding player feedback, like hit sounds and effects while fighting an enemy. You should also show the controls. I had a hard time to figure out how to progress the text (with E) and then I thought I have to outrun the enemies until I got that I can fight them.

Interesting experiment. I didn't saw any dark clouds at the beginning, so it was confusing as hell :D Like the others stated, the controls feel a bit off, especially because the player character automatically aligns, which makes it difficult to get the orientation back after making a little pause. Any yes, some music it missing!

You have to kill the purple whales, not just hit them :)

Hey! Sorry to hear and yes, there is an issue where when the game crashes while saving, the save file gets corrupted. I will fix that with the next update. Thanks for letting me know! :)

Posted in Mac Version?

Technically it would be possible with the framework I'm using (didn't tested it though), but I have no mac so probably there won't be any. Sorry! :(

Thanks for the feedback. When I'm going to change the fishing, I will take your ideas into consideration! :) For now, you can move the floater and hunt for fish (which leave white particle trails), which makes it a bit more interactive.

Posted in No customers?

Hey! Do you have a faucet filled with beer which can be accessed by the patrons? And do they come and just leave or do they not appear at all? If they don't appear but did before, could it be that some path to your tavern got blocked by respawning stuff like bushes? If so, you could have a look at the guidepost object: it allows to place new customer spawns on the map's border.

Yes, a proper save game management within the game is on my list. Right now, you could move the save game files out of the save game folder so a new file is created on the game's start. Here's some info on where to find the save game folder. :)

Regarding a switch port: no idea. Porting is a lot of work and I want to get the game done first before deciding something like that.

Posted in the ui is weird

Yes and thank you for your feedback! :)

Hmpf... if I find something out, I let you know! Sorry... :(

Wow! Big thanks for all the feedback. I made my notes and when I'm going to prepare the next update, I will have a closer look at it! Really appreciated! :)

(poor pigeons...)

No further error or info message?

Isn't there something similar in place to tell the Intel graphics drivers to use the graphics chip or gpu instead of the cpu? I'm not familiar with Intel graphics, but you could have a look at this:

Posted in Lag is real!

It's sadly not possible and the game isn't optimized yet. Sorry! :(

(Edited 1 time)

I've probably found a solution together with one of the Orcish Inn players. Can you please try to change the graphics settings of your computer so Orcish Inn is started as a "High-performance NVIDIA processor"? Here is more information on how to do that:

Please let me know if it worked!

Posted in Pigeons

Yap, have to optimize it for laptops and smaller resolutions.

Posted in Pigeons

Yeah, the interface isn't really adapted to smaller resolutions. I will fix that when I rework the interface (sorry!). Just out of curiosity: do you play on a laptop?

Like said, just send me the savegame over so I can have a look! :)

Posted in Beer Problems

Sorry to hear that! Faucets refill themselves when they are connected to barrels. Are you sure that your customers not drink the beer? If not, you could send me your savegame so I can have a look. Here is more information on how to do that:

Gonna balance that in the future. And there are 20 days per season.

Posted in Hawker

I actually removed selling food to give foraging more purpose.Or do you think fish and mushrooms restore not enough hunger?

Technically, it's probably possible, but I don't own a device so likely/sadly no. :(

Yeah, there is some problem with integrated graphic chips (laptops, tablets). Still researching it, but I haven't that much hope. So sorry :(

Posted in Game wont start

Hey and sorry for the problems. Could you post the full system specs, especially graphics chip, processor and RAM? Thanks. :)

I didn't added an in-game options screen yet (sorry). You have to open the settings file with a text editor and change the settings manually (and restart the game afterwards). The settings.xml can be found in one of the following locations:

  • "C:\Users\YourUsername\Documents\My Games\OrcishInn\"
  • "C:\Users\YourUsername\Documents\OrcishInn\"
  • "C:\Users\YourUsername\OneDrive\Documents\OrcishInn\"

Right-click and open it with a text editor, e.g. Notepad.

Sorry and best wishes,
Steven

Posted in Bed suggestion

I want to reduce the time the player just does nothing, which is the reason why fishing gives so much stamina, especially during day. Just make sure you actually catch a fish, as this gives a heavy stamina boost. :)

Posted in Help

Try to place a guidepost near the map's border and wait one day. Also make sure, that there is a path from there to your tavern.Customers can swim and use placed climbing ropes. Regarding your tavern, make sure the faucet is approachable and there is at least one table/bar with a chair. Let me know if it worked! :)

I guess your graphics drivers are up-to-date? Shooting into the dark here, sorry :(

I fear there are some problems related to integrated graphics chips (especially the Intel ones) with the framework I use. It's really hard for me to track these problems down, especially because the game didn't even started (and likely hadn't any chance to produce a crashlog). I mean, you could have a quick look if there's a crashlog folder in one of the following folders:

  • "C:\Users\YourUsername\Documents\My Games\OrcishInn\"
  • "C:\Users\YourUsername\Documents\OrcishInn\"
  • "C:\Users\YourUsername\OneDrive\Documents\OrcishInn\"
