Would be perfect if you could give us some feedback.

wow it was a really fun 30 minutes.  the graphics were also very sweet. I was locked to the screen from start to finish . Well Done!

Developer

Thank you very much :) Do you played solo or with some friends?

solo, and i had no gamepad unfortunately :(

(1 edit)

Issue 1: gamepad prompts even if the keyboard is used

Issue 2: harcoded WASD controls, making it unplyable from the get go for non qwerty users, I didn't go further than the main menu. :P

Issue 3: using itch.io launcher and when I click launch it starts the setup again instead of the game.

Developer

Hey ho Zoidberg,

thank you for your feedback.

1-2: The keyboard support is currently not our main focus we implemented a very easy solution so that people can try out the game in his current state. Main goal is to improve the mechanics of the game and extending the overall content.

3: Honestly... i don't know the itch.io launcher xD We will take a look what we can do.

Thanks for the feedback.

As for the keyboard issue, if you have done things correctly, by allowing the unity launcher to launch before the game it should allow the player to rebind keys.

There's a keyboard shorcut to force it but it seems I can't make it work.

Pity making your game playable by the most is not a priority but whatever. You decide.

Cheers.

Developer

Thank you again for your honest feedback.

We disabled the launcher because we want to troubleshoot gameplay issues first for now.
Finding Resolution and Setting issues are planed for a later stage in the develop process.


We also have a custom input solution because unity does not support all of our needs. (4 Controllers, hotjoin and custom bindings, so maybe the launcher does not support the rebinding of the keys correctly anyway)

For the next patch we plan to activate the arrow keys aswell, but a complete rebinding will come much more later i think. But maybe... if enough players want to play with the keyboard and have much trouble we can prio this issue.

Have a nice day

I know Unity is in the middle of revamping controls so I guess there's work there but from what I've seen it'll be easier to have hotseat controls.

Thanks and good luck with the dev!

tried a few runs, probably broke my hand. 

having to play with keyboard is very hard. I also feel cheated, when you buy the first upgrade you always seem to pay with all of your money expect for 1 coin.

aside from that very fun, would break my hand again if WASD becomes arrow keys. 

Developer

Thank you for your Feedback :)

Yeah i will create a patch very very soon which also includes arrow keys. But i highly recommend to use a controller because our main goal for now is to have more content instead of perfect matching controls for every device :) 

Patch 0.012a should contains Arrow keys aswell <3

This game is beautiful and has potential but what I would personally suggest is to change the name to something more special, "Wild Woods" are both too generic word that are used a lot in the internet, for example if you search wild woods on the internet the game barely shows on the first page of google but if you use a more personalized and special name the game could explode easily, just my opinion XD

Enjoyed playing (mac, gamepad), the art is fantastic!

Felt that the game isn't balanced for single player – way to many enemies right at the beginning...

Developer

Thank you for your feedback!

Yeah the game is far from balanced in the current stage. We balanced it for just two players and two weeks ago we decided to implement support up to four. The balance should be much better in the future :)

The game is great, I love it. Visuals 9/10. Gameplay I won't say anything because I still want to see how far can you take it. Wonderful mechanics and it kept me going at the game. Thanks again for bringing back the keyboard input.

Developer

Thank you for the lovely feedback! Hope you have some kind of fun with the keyboard.  We created the game with controllers in mind so i will always recommend to play with a controller :) 

I played with my girlfriend and it was quite fun :). I like having to collect stuff as you go and upgrading your wagon. I doon't really have much feedback sorry other than I enjoyed it and I would like to see more. More paths, more enemies, more more more :). Maybe there could be some personal upgrades so that each person becomes a little more specialized, like someone can carry or throw wood further and others can carry more / throw gold further.
Anyways, well wishes with development! I think you've got a cool cute fun game here!

Developer

Thank you for your nice feedback! We also want a bit more and have already some ideas in mind, some of them matches with yours <3

Nice game! I like it very much so far.Keep up the good work! My only questions now are: 

Is there a way to play coop with a keyboard?

Will you improve the experience for lower end pc users as well?

Developer

Hey Alex,

Thank you for your thoughts. 

Suddenly currently there is now way to play coop with a keyboard.

At the moment the game was designed to run on a really high quality pc, because it was just for our final university presentation.

But in the future we are aiming to support Nintendo switch aswell. And the switch had much lower specs. 

thank you for the response. Hope your game finds its way to the top of the rankings!

it was really good! playing solo made the game very hard as i was trying to collect defend and upgrade by myself, would recommend a story, was interested in why i was out there and monsters attacking me. have some sort of side quests and/or reach a village (didn't reach the end so i don't really know if there is a village, still playing it) buy better weapons, change environments things like to further build the game. Really good start though my vid on it is coming out today! here 

Developer

Hey Marxxiez thank you for sharing your gameplay with us!

I really enjoyed watching how you don't want to buy the "Brew Pot" :) You are not the first one how don't want to. But its the tutorial you have to!
Most of your feedback is on our long term todo list like a little story, weapons and side quest... one idea we have in mind is that you can run into little caves without the wagon and hunting for treasure.

Btw. you can switch your cat skin with the new version https://wildwoods.itch.io/wildwoods/devlog/92628/patchnotes-0012a-gamescom
And you can skip the tutorial :P

Developer (1 edit)

I had to come back because i watched your video twice now... because you are just so funny to watch! You have a new subscriber now :)
Btw. slay the spire was one reference we used for the crossroads but its not fully implemented.

And ... a little cheat just for you. If you press the right thumbstick in the menu... a hidden "Boss Only" menu item appears :) So you can jump right to the boss and fight him!

OH NOW IM INTRIGUED

this is more of an issue with the hardware: i dont have an xbox controller and i knew the keyboard wouldnt work because of the couch play thing, so i did the best thing i could; Use a dualshock 4 with steam! unfortunatley, the game is still recieving ps4 controls as ps4 controls, if it even is recieving controls from steam. tbh this probably is an issue with steam and not with the game but i want to be sure.

Developer

Can you give me the exact controller name? So i can try to do something. Or are you speaking about the steam controller? I have one but never tested it with Wild Woods.

I was using A Dualshock 4 controller via Steam Big Picture mode. it might be problem with it not interpreting any controls, but i just want to be sure


P.S.

Dualshock 4 controllers are ment for the PS4, however, a recent update to big picture allows you to connect a controller and set it so that buttons are interpreted as xbox input

Developer

That's cute! Thank you :)
