Hello! I tried to download and install your game through the itch.io client, but only see demos. Would you please help? Thank you!
I do quite like this story, its my favorite one by you guys so far I think! ^u^ I'm not usually one that likes creepy/scary/dark themes, but I was drawn in by potentially being able to romance 'the monster'. x'/D And learning the story of "the monster, the dark and the forest" hehe.
But I have one main thing that bothers me enough to want to comment on it. Why don't the endings have an explanation--or is a better word description? It feels disappointing in a way. It doesn't feel like a proper finish--it feels very, sudden. And for having gotten very invested and immersed in this world--that's a very disheartening way to have to leave it. Suddenly--and without proper closer. :( It makes me sad, I've enjoyed this so much. Even just one sentence explaining the pictures would improve that. But you guys are very creative enough that I feel a proper explanation of the remainder of Sage's life in the forest wouldn't be difficult for you guys to include. I know its been a while since the game has been released but I feel including these things will make a HUGE difference, please consider it! I will, and I'm sure others will also feel more motivated to search for the other endings that way~
There are some issues with getting certain achievement's on steam even though I got all the endings , I don't understand why I didn't get them
Hello! Thank you for your comment and apologies that it took so long to respond. We will be looking into this!
Played it today and really loved it, it is so beautiful))) The atmosphere is unique and plot is so captivating)
Well, also I am hoping there will be a walkthrough, I am a bit lost)
Thanks for playing! There is no ending guide as of right now.
hello! The ending guide is now available in the artbook.
A beautiful demo. Loved the creepy atmosphere and the unknown danger.
Most reviews that I conduct of Visual Novels are based upon experiences I have whilst playing through it at the time of the writing, yet the story you have crafted here had kept me sat tightly in my rickety old chair wishing to see more and more, and I was genuinely dissapointed to see that the experience had to be ended so quickly.
To start off with, the music in this piece of artwork is absolutely beautiful and something that everyone who had a part in its creation should be proud of (I'd deadass buy the OST if I could).
The Artwork in this VN, much like the music is beautifully done, especially for a demo. The cover art is what caught my eye the most, with it being one of the best pieces of cover art i've ever seen out of even AAA games.
Lastly the story is really intriguing and I can't wait to see how Sage's story wraps up. ALthough I would have hoped for more choices within the demo.
(I also experienced a glitch which I cover in my shit video attached to this review)
Thank you so much for the lovely review, and the video! We're so glad you enjoyed the demo, short as it was! We will be working on getting the glitched fixed ASAP.
i love the artstyle
pretty good plot
waiting for more
Played the demo today and noticed something weird: fullscreen made the game duplicate itself on both of my monitors, and when I clicked anything the secondary monitor just went black and stayed that way even after I closed the game. I have Windows 10 and my version of the demo is up to date.
Hello! I'm sorry to hear about that. We haven't seen this error before but we'll do some testing to try and figure out what could be wrong. Thanks for bringing it to our attention and sorry it took so long to get back to you!
will there be romance?
Artist here! Thanks to the kickstarter, there will be light romance if you choose certain paths.
Ooooh, I like this so far. I especially liked how you just get tossed into the woods with no explanation. Like, "hey, spooky forest-- in ya go!!!"
Very much like a first-person fairy-tale so far. Really excited to see the full version.
I just played your demo and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
I feel like this will be an amazing game when it is finished. The demo has already been so good and pulled me in very quick!
Bruh, it looks amazing
Looking like it'll be great
We really hope it will be! A lot of effort has gone into perfecting the feel and atmosphere of the game!
This looks amazing already!
Thank you so much! We're hoping it'll provide an amazing experience from beginning to end!
I'm so excited, it looks amazing
We're super excited too! Thank you so much, we've put a lot of work into perfecting the atmosphere of the game!
