Rightio so, been playing this game for a few days, built the little bridge which is currently the main thing to do(and only major thing in atm). This game is really nice. Very relaxing, easy to play, and just a nice calm experience which is nice. It definitely reminds me of Stardew Valley. I know the game it's mainly compared to is Harvest Moon but i never played that lol.
The main things i think could be edited to make things a bit less.....slow are: The time of day goes by too fast. Even in Stardew Valley i hate how fast the days go by, cause i feel like i'm not able to get enough done in a single day. Right now it looks like it goes by Minutes are seconds, and hours are minutes. I know that's simple to program, but it really doesn't leave much time to do much in a single day. I feel crafting times as well are a bit ridiculous. Smelting items takes 2-3 ingame hours for just one, and so again i feel like i'm wasting a full day just waiting for materials to smelt so i can actually build things. Right now the game doesn't have a ton of content, so i get maybe trying to pad it a bit but it really should be reduced greatly. Only like, technical bug i'm seeing is whenever i make my first swing of combat the game lags up bad for a bit but i'm sure that will be ironed out.
I guess i could also mention stamina, mainly that i wish it regened slowly over time. Again, was another problem i had with Stardew Valley. Right now only a few items give some stamina but not that much stamina per, and can be a pain to get a hold of. I think a slow stamina regen of like, 1 or 2 per second would be nice, cause i could do more resource gathering in a day. But that one is just a gripe of mine, the other two things i spoke above are to me more important things that would improve the game by making me feel like i'm getting more out of each day. Just my thoughts really.
All in all, i really enjoy this game and can't wait to see more updates. I hope this game goes as far as Stardew Valley has cause i loved that game so much and having another game similar would be great. I love the art style and graphics, the sounds are great, and the characters look really nice so i hope they get fleshed out nicely.
