Firstly I would like to say I love the overall style of the game. It feels very comfortable and nice. Since this is an Alpha there is still much to be desired. How do I get the packages from the helicopter? I love the combat and the platforming traversal of the game. The music also fits each area and it was soothing to listen to. Loved this Alpha and can't wait to see the full release!

Gave it a little Let's play, cute characters and world :)
I love this, it has so much soul and heart put into it and its just all around fun. I look forward to whats to come! ^^
Also, I just suggest some more dialogue, like Oran not saying anything different after you speak to Bagre, or the mail dragon just saying every day is a good day to deliver letters. The dialogue is still very charming!
I can't choose my language.
but gameplays is verry funny.
I love this game, you clearly put lots of effort into it
Pretty fun, but I can't pick up items on the beach
But there are some bugs that I experienced, like when the game changes scenes sometimes the character movement and the birds (for example) slows down. this is the only bug that I experienced can you please fix it?
really nice game, like it.
too bad that it doesnt auto save though.
like if I collect some super important item, cant it make an autosave or something?
or an autosave if I croos the border between one of the 3 main areas?
not to forget: after boss fights! :-)
Also, would be nice if the game had less consumables and more permanent stuff.
you know, some secret stuff, behind hidden puzzles and stuff.
just like that cave in the sea area I just came to realize that I never went back there acctually O_o)
the sound it makes when someone talks is horrendous, dunno if you were trying to make it like undertale but it really sucks man
Loved the game! Is there any chance I can ask for the color palette you used here?
Is the full game going to be free?
How do you save the game?
Hey! I love the game though I'm stuck at the Ancient Cave quest because I can't find it. Help?
Ok, let's try this again. ¡Oye! Me encanta el juego, aunque estoy atrapado en la búsqueda de Ancient Cave porque no puedo encontrarlo. ¿Ayuda?
Hola :D La cueva está escondida dentro del bosque , no podrás verla a menos que "entres a ella por un costado", si verificas los "costados" de las paredes del bosque eventualmente lo encontrarás.
in the forest, go right from where the guys blocked the way beforehand. (when you collected sap and stuff).
move fiurther right until youa re back at *MC's friend*'s house, pushing the box to the site.
literally the next screen left, at the bottom right.
that's where the cave is.
literally 1 screen left of the friend with her bar.
i love the game play so far and cant wait to play more if your considering playing maby check my video out
ps just for people on june 5 you need to wait till 12 est
Really lovely game! Enjoying so far thanks and well done!
One minor bug found, when first talking to Ginger the text overruns the box slightly.
RIght, I better get back to the island!! :)
Amei o jogo eu jogo ele desde quando voce colocou aqui o jogo em si é muito bom mesmo com bugs
i can't answer you in Portuguese but thanks for your support !! I'm working on bugs continuously
A bug is that if you use a return stone in the ancient cave, the health bar disappears, as do the characters and the game becomes unresponsive.
I love the ambiance of the game, was really relaxing!
i'm trying to replicate the ambiance from some important places in my life so i'm very glad you felt good!!! thanks for your support!!
Really great atmosphere and graphics! It would be awesome to have a full game looking at this demo.
Hello there. Love the color and the art work!
Are there any minimum system requirements as a must?
I wanna try it but my PC is really, really, seriously(it's running Win7 lol) old, sadly... And even though I want to play the alpha so badly, I don't want to ruin my PC T__T
hey thanks for your comments!! for now there're no minimum requirements because as an alpha i have not fully tested it but i can say for sure that it wont make your pc explode so dont worry. In the worst case, your game will be lag a bit because some shaders but that's all so try it and let me know how it goes :D Thanks for your support!!!
My pc is windows 7 and runs the game i think you too
Is there any way to manually save the game, while not near a save post?
no, the only way you can save your progress is being near a save post so be sure to say hi to the post birds :D
I found the bug! After taking picture of door in the cave my health bar vanished. Here's the screenshot:
when I try to run the game it works fine and every thing but i cant choose my language when I click English it just stays on that screen so i cant get in to the game could I get so e help?
Can I play as Lara?
Right now you can't play as Iara but i'm working in some AI-cooperative mechanics and is highly possible that in the future Iara will be a fully playable character
hey, thanks for your comments!!
i know about the english issues, actually i'm not english native so i hope when i start the full development of the game fix them with a proper translator.
also, i'm both the artist and the programmer so thank you so much!!
What An Amazing Game I really wish to hear from the game Developer about what is she/he doing .
Didnt really hear from you for a while
Have a great day :D
i've been working on the game and some other surprises for a better gaming experience :D
Sadly, i'm a little stuck because my pc is being repaired :(
thank you so much for your support and have a nice day too!!!
Is there a chance that this game can be ported to Android?
this game is planned to be released on pc and i hope on consoles but not to android for now, sorry :(
Is it just alpha?
I love it
Waaait.... Will this have a daylight sensor???
Que buena pinta tiene! Mis felicitaciones por lo que se alcanza a ver del proyecto. Habrá alguna demo para mac?
hola!!! dudo que fuera a lanzar un demo para mac sin embargo espero que exista soporte en el lanzamiento del juego completo, muchas gracia por tu interés!!!
This games looks very promising..
Great graphics, and an intriguing story... can't wait for more Hojiya. :)
Wow!! So beautiful!!
this game is just beautiful
excellent game that i can see going very far. excellent work on the sprite artwork, character designs, writing, music, and UI. a few nitpicks like the jump feeling too heavy, etc. but very impressive work. i wish the game's future development well!
Will this game be available also on Steam
