I can't play the game on my android when i enter the game i only see a grey Square keep expanding and shrinking it size with background music, and that it nothing else no play button or anything just the square and the music, can you fix the problem for android?

Developer

Hi Iverdigital, I will have a look at it first thing tommorow :)

Developer

Hey Iverdigital,
New android build is up. You can drag on the left to move the character, drag on the right to move the camera. Double tap the left to interact with doors and npcs. Double tap the right to jump. Double tap middle to hit things.
Will spend more time on the controls later. But atm doesn't handle moving from 2 fingers to 1 very well. Also.. You cannot switch weapons or pause yet! Will add those soon.

the problem with the grey cube and background music seem have been change into a purple background with music and green letter E in the middle of the screen, when i tap on the letter E, the game crash. I try it multiple times it still crash. can you fix it ?

Developer

hi iver, im not able to reproduce this on my end. What is your model oh phone and OS version, perhaps i can test it in an android simulator.

it an star4 model from a friend give this to me, and it can still play most of game normally. the Vos version is 3.0 and the android version is 10. ram is 3gb, it have 32gb storage and 7.83gb free. Is that enough to run the game?

Yes the game doesn't use many resources, from testing on pc it uses 500mb to 1.5gb of ram. It doesn't store much too. I think it's something to do with the unity export settings. I will have to research it. Thank you for the information.

checking back to see if i can play the game yet and still having the same issue maybe there an issue with my phone i guess ? i should try it on other android phone to see if it work.

Alright after test the game on my other phone i finally see the menu properly i think and able to start a new world second try after the first time it crash when i try to create a character but then the second time the game crash again after enter the new world/realm i think the game is not optimize properly for android. the phone i was testing is stronger than my previous phone both is android.

Developer

Hi Iver! The game is very optimized, using ECS!
I'm not sure why it crashed, but creating a new realm uses file access, and it doesn't crash on my samsung s21!  I'm not sure what could be causing your crash. I just double checked it again by reinstalling it on my phone from the itch page. The game files do not use much space, so it shouldn't be an issue about storage size. It's hard to know what is causing the error on your end. What phone might you be using? Thanks again for your patience and time giving me feedback. I'm sorry it did not work for you.

i have try to play the game again after 3 crash after create new world and create new character AND After I start to enter the new world It Crash then I enter the new world again it work and let me play for the first time I can play normally, I think. And the game control is really hard and glitchy, I can't find any pause button or how to open my inventory or equip item, in order to attack I have to press the bar under the middle of the screen it really difficult to press it while aiming. In order to jump I have to double press on the right side of the screen. And yeah my experience with the game is not good for me of course, after this i rate the game: "3 out of 10 " 

"I have to slide my finger across the screen just to move at 1 block per second, a game where you can exercise your finger, well at least it free". -IGN

Yes, the android controls are still early in development. Thank you for your feedback. I am aware of the input being not good to play with on android. I planned to add Button UI and UI for the control sticks. Unfortunately the desktop version takes higher priority and I still need to polish the game loop first before working more on the android port. I am not sure about the crash though, as it is impossible to replicate for me. If you have any ideas for the android version, please let me know!

sure take your time, you can't rush a game if you want it to be good and playable, i can wait.

Developer

Thank you :) I will definitely let you know when I improve the android version.. Sorry about that. Yes my plan is to polish the main loop until it's more fun and then add more content and work on touch controls more. The space feature have been hard haha.
