Really neat game! Simple story, effective delivery. Love how items affect time and have different uses. Great job here! For minor issues, I found the text block way too small and hard to read. You have a lot of space to play with. The text areas can be larger without compromising the look. 

I'd also tweak the audio. Emilia is hard to hear. She's also quieter than Ganz when the person you're playing should be clearest. I'd bump it up to better match Ganz's level since his sounds the most balanced. 

The music drowns the voices out when it swells too, so maybe pull it back more after it climbs. Beyond that, the game played great. The intro was a little choppy but that's no biggy. Keep up the good work and good luck on future games!

the game dont load

Loved the game! The story is thrilling and I wasn't able to save him for 5 minutes which made me STARVE for playing again... But when I tried the second time, the game freezes!

It happens right after the communications and my first action ingame... Tried a few different approachs and mostly the same happens everytime: 1st action pops up, she says something and the game kinda freezes. 

I have gyazoed it so you can see it. I wasn't able to locate the game files to try and erase them, I have deleted the game and extracted again to see what happens, but it's all the same, hope you find a fix soon because I REALLY enjoyed playing!

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that. I'll look into it asap and I'll let you know once it's fixed.

I've just uploaded a new build.

The problem was not relaunching the game, but the fact that, already knowing the game, you were clicking on Ganz's order and the first building faster than I had anticipated, causing a deadlock situation.

It should be good to go, waiting for your confirmation!

IT WORKED! THank you so much!

Lovely game ! thank for the experience :)

this was very cool! it kept me very focused in my objective (no trying to spoil things lol). The mechanic of losing and gaining time with each action had me on the edge of my seat as i was not trying to mess up and waste time which i did lol. I do wish there was a bit of a battle type situation or stressful quick decision making type scenario but i did enjoy what you did have. Great job

Thank's a lot for the video, your enthusiasm and energy is super communicative, I had a blast watching you!

Great atmosphere, good voice acting and very unique. Please tell me there will be more? I love it!

loved the game, hope to see more from you :D

Thank's for your kind comment and the let's play!

this was a great experience, I loved it, sadly I wasn't able to play it a third time as it would freeze on the intro, but it may have something to do with my PC, anyways I hope you make more games like this, because it was fun.

Thank's for your comment, I'm glad you enjoyed the game! The problem you ran into is not normal though. Can you confirm it freezes even if you quit and launch the game again? That is strange, as the game doesn't store anything on disk and a clean startup should put the game in the exact same state as for the first launch.

Also, even if it's not exactly the same kind of game, you can try Ananke, an adventure game I made some time ago but of which I'm still proud :)

sorry for the late reply, I will definitely check out your other game. also i made a video and the glitch happened, so you could see it, its near the end.

Have you tried redownloading the game, I've uploaded a build one week ago with a fix for this exact problem.

not yet, i'll try it out.

The game is great, but it seems really slow on mac (MBP running mojave), even at the lowest resolution / low end graphics. I've played firewatch and the witness with no problems.

I'm having the same issue on Windows with low end graphics. It has too much lag and delay.

Can you try the last version I've uploaded and maybe check the new 'Performance' setting (see my reply to kokuma). Thank's!

Hey, sorry to hear that... Not looking for any excuse but since the game was made in under 14 days, I have to admit I skipped the optimization part a bit :D The game relies heavily on the GPU and with a good CPU only, I think it'll still lag at some point...

I've uploaded a new version (1.0.5, you can check it by pressing Esc and opening the pause menu) with a slightly better optimization for Mid-end and Low-end quality (having to do with water reflection mostly) and I've added a performance setting which is the lowest I can go (no water reflection, no decals, almost no grass, no background meshes, low fog quality). Tell me if it helps!

Cheers!

It works better! Now it is playable (for me) at 1280x720, mid end. Thank you very much

I really enjoyed playing this game!! Finished it two times and I still believe there is a different ending! Well done!

Thank's a lot, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Might be fun!
