Thank you so much for playing our demo! If you have any thoughts, feedback, or issues please post them here!
Which two, if you don't mind me asking? :)
Hmm let me see what I can do. I'll try making a Linux distribution tomorrow and put it up here if all goes well...I don't have that kind of system to test it on, so would you be my tester on that front?
We are aiming for a Kickstarter in late September. We'll announce the date once it's locked in.
Thanks so much for playing our game!! <3
I love Poptart (remind me Zephel from Angelique) and Garth (because every lady loves him)...but Susie is uber cute too XD
I didn't play a lot but the game is going to be great!!!
Btw,when I take a screenshot I get an error message (I play with my windows 7,cannot stand windows 10).
And I would be happy to help for Linux ^^
Alrighty, I made a distribution for Linux and uploaded it to the main page! Let me know if it's playable. If it is, I'll let everyone know we have it available on that platform as well!
I don't know what's up with the screenshot error or how to solve it...I hope that's not a widespread problem. Anyways, thanks a lot for your help and I'm looking forward to hearing from you again! :)
Thanks for the Linux build ^^
I'm going to test/play tomorrow (need to finish my homework right now T_T)
Haha, no problem! Good luck with your homework!
Work great for Linux so far :)
Just...same error when I take a screenshot...tested on Tower PC with AMD R9 390 Gaming 8G + 32G RAM +I7 4790K and Lenovo Yoga 520.
Tested both Linux and Windows7 (Tower PC) + Windows 10 (Lenovo).
Thank you so much!! <3 We definitely aim for the characters to be realistic and relatable!
Thank you, your words mean a lot!! <3 The credit for the art style will have to go to our artist, Flora. We found her on Lemmasoft and couldn't have asked for anyone better. Shoutout to our BG artist Bunny and our logo artist Potouto as well. :)
Your idea was intriguing and we discussed it, but we decided it doesn't fit with our structure very well. If we had the type of game where you simply choose whose route you want to play, it would fit better, but ours is the kind where you wind up on the route of whoever you have built affinity with in the first week. We'd like people to play the routes in any order they want as well and it'd be tough choosing which guy to present as free. We were hoping to achieve giving players a taste of the writing, humor, characters, etc. with the release of this demo.
Thanks again for your feedback!
Thank you so much for replying! I thought about it for a second and then remembered that it wouldn't work since the structure of the game is as you've said. I felt bad about Clark so I went back on the demo and re-did his choices :) Do you guys have any idea what the final price of the game will be? The demo is amazing! :3
Edit: Would Aaron ever be a possible route in the game? Saw him in a few scenes and wondered about it :) I also saw the seven guys on the screen and the mention of 7+ love interests so it got me thinking since Aaron wasn't one of them :)
We're thinking $15 for the final price of the game! There will be early bird rates on Kickstarter though. And thanks again. <3
Aaron is not dateable at this point in time. There always seems to be one good-looking guy in dating sims that isn't an option. But I will not deny he has...potential. ;)
Ahh, thank you for playing and enjoying our game! <3 Ideally we'd like the game to be out within 18 months, but there are only two of us programming it and we both work full-time jobs.
Thank you for noticing how much love we have put into this game, especially the characters. We're glad they made you smile and hope they will continue to do so in the finished game. :)
Woo! Awesome! We definitely aim for it to be relatable. And heck yeah, someone got the Blue Devils reference. :) Thanks for playing, so glad you enjoyed it!
Thank you! We can't say for sure yet, but ideally we're hoping for within the next 18 months, but there are only two of us programming it and we both have full-time jobs.
Ah ok, well good luck on the game! :)
Thanks a lot!
Hey! i replayed the game and picked different choices because i couldn't stop thinking about the game but I noticed Peters interest in the MC, does he have like some sort of crush on her even though he is already dating someone?
I'm glad to hear it's on your mind and you replayed it! :D And yes he does! His foundation with Felicity isn't very strong and with the MC in the head position of drum major, he can't help but notice you.
Ah ok, also i didn't notice it in my first gameplay in the game the guy with the instrument that covers his face, is he in important character to the story and you'll reveal his face in one of the routes? One more question, will poptarts real name be revealed?
That's Eugene, Susie's boyfriend, and he's more of a running joke than an important character. And yes, Poptart's name will be revealed in his story arc. :)
Wow, thank you so much for your extensive and thoughtful feedback! We really appreciate it! :D
Thanks a lot! Also, I'm sorry about that!! :( We will definitely put in some more options that I hope will work for you!
I love this, it warms my heart! <3 That is a good moment with Peter, where he's caught off guard. I'm excited for you and everyone to get to know the characters more as well. Thanks so much for your feedback!
I actually like this idea of a glossary a lot. We tried to keep in mind there would be non-band geeks playing and explain terms such as dot coordinate sheets and sectionals, but if you have zero familiarity with band, I can see how it might get tough. Which terms did you have the most trouble with, if you don't mind me asking? (Also your profile picture is really cute)
So I have level 0 band knowledge (like I don't even know what a drum major is level 0). What I had the most trouble with overall was like (for lack of a better way of describing it) the band "position" terms ("the pit," "the baratones," "the color guard," "low brass," "dressing," I'm still trying to figure out what the band president does that's not duplicative of what the drum major does) also some of the instruments (like is a mellophone a thing or is it a brass instrument that's not a trumpet and TF is a mezzo piano?).
Thanks-My profile picture is my German Shepard, Squall. He's a little booger and the world's biggest wimp, but he does have an awesome smile.
All right then I'm definitely going to have a glossary in the full game to help non-bandos out. Thank you for giving me this feedback. I'll try and define some of those terms while you're here...
Drum Major: The conductor of the band.
The Pit: The front ensemble, which consists of instruments that can't be marched with such as a xylophone, gong, etc.
Low Brass: A family of brass instruments that play in a deeper range including baritones, tubas, and trombones.
Color Guard: The flag twirlers.
Dressing: Looking down the line or curve and making sure you're in line with everyone else or conforming to the shape.
Mellophone: Since French horns aren't a marching instrument, mellophones are the substitute. They look like giant trumpets, but sound like French horns--it is the instrument Poptart is holding.
Mezzo piano: A measure of volume. It's relatively soft--Peter is mocking Clark in that his instrument can't play nearly as loud as his own.
I hope that helps! And Squall looks like a very good boy.
Thank you! If you don't mind a bit more unsolicited advice, I think it would be a good idea to put some glossary terms on the KS page (I'm going to back now but I was hesitant to back previously because I was afraid I'd go through the whole game not really understanding TF everyone was talking about-my in my defense I DID know who Charlie Parker is).
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such kind feedback! :) We really appreciate it and hope the full game lives up to your expectations. <3
Aaaa, thank you so much for taking the time to make an account and leave feedback!! I love reading about others' experiences in band and what they found relatable in BCB. We miss marching band a lot too so this was our way of coping. The nostalgia hits me super hard whenever you can hear the drums practicing in the background. Anyways, congrats on graduating and thanks again! :)
when i heard the snare drum in the background i felt my band instincts call to me in an instant LOL
you guys are doing a lot of good work so it's more of a pleasure for me to get to experience the fruition of your hard work! <3
(also tom has nothing on me and my 100+ hours on smash bros and 100+ hours in xenoblade chronicles 2 B))
im hoping that the side characters get to play a more interesting role though in the full game! and i would be interested in seeing a friendship route or something where cadence can sort of just chill with susie and maybe make friends with felicity? or just in general get to hang out with the side characters and enjoy the band life without romancing anyone haha
maybe it's also just because i would like to not hate felicity due to her attitude and being with peter, but i'm fairly sure you guys have your own plan for that :) having that kind of rival trope is interesting, but i don't want to dislike any characters simply because of who they decided to love :')
Thank you so much! ;w; Haha, I bet Tom would be willing to go head to head with you!
Yes, the side characters will have their own part to play and you will get varying subplots depending on which route you take! You might make friends or lose friends depending on your choices. They didn't get much time to shine during the demo since there were so many characters to introduce, but they will get their screentime in the full game. :)
