thanks for uploading this i counlt watch the stream cause timezones but the replay is awesome im glad you enjoyed it 

even tho i say this game is made by friendly seal studio

the only permanent employee is me

i did every little bit of the game 

the only thing people helped me with is learning how to program and my friends did the soundtrack


this game is inpired by many cool enviorments

and heavily inspired by a game named journey from the same guy who did abzu :3

cool story journey is made by "that game company" but when making journey they went bankrupt cause they wanted to make such a wonderful game and they did

but the art director story director mat nava still wanted to make games so he opened his own studio called "the giant squid studios" and he made some amazing games like abzu and the pathless

and you can really tell its made by the same people

i was so inspired by that, that i even started learning how to program and this is my first ever game

rn im working on a seal game a little simulator about seals but it has alot of gameplay much more than this so the process is super slow but after that i hope i can polish wandering and maybe release it on steam 


thank you for playing

thank you for playing it :3 im glad you liked it <3

yes the bugs are all fixed by now :3 i just have to upload the new version

i will try to apply texture to the show it sounds like a good idea

there are some errors with background noise that i have to fix but i will fix them  too next month :3

ill be uploading the early access to patron's tomorrow :3

and then on itch  on 31th

i fixed the death screen bug too its all fixed next update will be awesome ill go give your game a try

yes thank you i already fixed the sleeping annoyance of having to wait so long and the bug where you get stuck afterwards. and fixed the air levels so dying is a bit harder now etc,

also in the next update there will be a costumization option so you can costumize your self :3


thank you for your critiq it will help alot to develop a better game i hope you will stay on the train of this gamedev <3

its a 3d software the point isnt suposted to be pretty this isnt a game this is a tool 

the ui is very well optimized and simple to use and has good rules on where are certain funcions placed

its your fault for not learning the software for 5 minutes 


also keyboard shortcuts are the best thing ever, its the only reason i can work on such a lighing speed

growing big on itchio by itself is not a great idea cause itchio is more like of a store than a social media

if you really wanna advertise your games and for people to play them more i recomend growing on social media like twitter, its a great place for indies and socializing in indie communities like indie hive indie world order and indie lover


i have 1.180 followers on twitter and only 40 on itchio

i think the ui of blender is fantastic if you take 10 minutes to learn it like every program ever

-6 years blender user

ive been a 3d artist for like 6 years now and i was pretty good at 3d after 6 months of youtube tutorials, all you need is to just have a decent workflow you know like know what is proper topology for hard surface and organic surface, how to uv map and texture, blender is amazing at texturing btw, also try to find an easy and simple artsyle for your game that is very pretty and works well with your gameplay. 

also here is proof that i know 3d very well https://www.artstation.com/gloriatheanimator

i even work as a full time freelancer nowadays taking commisions for animating modelling and recenly even got into 2d concepting


you just gotta keep at it and dont give up

there are so many free tutorials and supportive people in the blender community that you can easily learn the program to a really nice deegre within 6 months and it is SUPER SUPER WORTH IT cause you can always use this skill for other projects and ofc maybe even find a some work related to it if you are ever low on money


i woulnt call my self a creative person i just kinda copy what already exist but in my own unique way 

cause its really hard to make a pixel perfect copy

everything is an interpotation


-ps sorry for my bad spelling i am working on that

oh also the controls? do you click it in the main menu or in the pause menu? also in the pause menu there is a save button that will save before you quit etc

thank you for your response i have noted the bugs and as soon as i get back to developing this game after my studies i will fix them shortly
i didnt knew this game was so buggy before i play tested it but your comment will help alot
im very glad you like the game cause its gonna improve alot in a few months :3 especialy after all the bug fixing

this was a quick prototype i have developed in around 1.5 including making all the assets and animations

oh also if you havent yet join my discord ill be posting some wip screenshots there of the game and my current studies
thanks once again <3

thank you :3

hello ive made my first ever game quite a while ago but im very proud of it and i think it deserves a bit more love than it gets thank you <3 https://thefriendlysealstudio.itch.io/wandering

alright ill try that thanks

aaaa i cant play it in browser my mouse is not locked so i can only see 90c instead of 360c help

read above

pick me please im a great programer and a 3d artist sometimes 2d too  

my discord GloriaTheSeal#0165

damn this game actualy looks really fun

very wholesome game just make sure when packaging with ue4 enable letting it use open gl as well cuz for me it broke a couple times 

fellow ue4 game dev tip

that is a very minor update bug fixes are always good tho i shall away for a bigger update maybe more content or bigger changes or expansions SO HYPED

wonderful the fishes are so cute great game i wish there was more of a goal than to collect all the fish and it could really use some music

very cute game i just wish you turned off the motion blur it makes the game so trippy and lagy

all it is just walking in a desert at night for around 20 minutes

when i think about it, it might just be my hardware this isnt the first game that does this its usually related to d3d crashing

i think the inputs broke at the start menu cuz i counlt move my mouse or use my keyboard to press start

im suprized it still ran the requirements are around 8gb ram wich is standart in modern computers and laptops the processor is a bit old but im very amazed that you could still play the game i guess its not so badly optimized after all <3

ah sorry about the lag this game is quite heavy what are you specs

so i can barely control the black dot and nothing happens

i cant download this thought the client it says no compatable package fonu

thank you so much for the kind words and suggestions, im indeed quite inspired by the art director of "that game company" games like journey flower and  abzu i was very inspired to make a game with a similar peaceful feel cuz its just so plesant to play those games i will modify the way the wings work so its more clear what the orbs do thank you
