There seems to be tones of content,
but no way to get at it.
For example: there are tones of transformative items. But you may only search each room once, you do not always find something and you can't save scum.
So despite there being many items, you cant use them.
This happens at many levels, in fact every mechanic in this game is very detailed, and almost all can't be accessed outside of the debug tools or serve no real purpose.
It's got a lot of potential, I hope some day it gets finished.
but I strongly suspect that years from now, they'll still be adding more features.
Download it, play it, reach the end and wonder "is that it?"
I like some of the ideas and mechanics in play, it's just that there's nothing to do with them, so it doesn't make much difference. There's almost nothing to do and the few things there are don't always trigger or work. I like the new camp intro but it's transition to the original opening makes no sense and you don't really get anything out of it. Meanwhile, the house in the woods is still the only place you can really explore but most things have little to no interactions and none of your decisions or exploration impact anything aside finding some clothes and money. The dialogue quickly runs out to either being bugged or incomplete with its impact on your relations with characters having no meaning. Making it back outside still leads to a series of dead ends very fast with nothing to do than walk laps and forage for camping supplies. And for a transformative based game, I think I only found about three transformatives(one you're always given at the start) in the three times I've played through this. I just don't get how there can be so little game and content for such a long time.
I'm not really sure if I can recommend this, at present time.
Sure, there's a LOT of text in the game, but it's development has been an absolute mess, to put it lightly.
It's been in development for YEARS (not weeks, not months), and the devs have
still not been able to finish the first story zone (inside of a giant wooden trunk with goblins).
Do try it, there's a lot of good ideas and writing, it's just that development seems to be spinning in the mud.
Adding systems (that doesn't add much to the game) and lots of other stuff, that still leaves this a skeleton
of a game, with good ideas, systems that don't do much, and very little story to actually explore.
Again, good grades for the many good ideas they have added to the game, but there's still, so little actual game.
I hope they will add more of a storyline over time, and not get distracted by adding more and more features
that doesn't help the game moving forward (storywise). 2 ...3 years? Is a long time to write the game's first proper zone.
There's a lot to enjoy, for sure. But once you reach the end of what little story there is, the world's best character creation
won't help you from enjoying it. I hope actual writing picks up. This game has potential, but it won't be finished for the
next couple of years, at this rate.
All this said? I want the game to succeed as well. But if you ever want to see an end to the project, the story has to star moving forward
Amazing game so far I love where this is going. Still a work in progress so not much content but the game does get updated regulary and the creator is active so that's a big difference to alot of the other games on this website. Character creation is getting more detailed with more updates so it's a plus for alot of us RP fans. Will be updating my review as time goes on keep up the great work and I can't wait to see the future progress of this project!!! ^^
So, I have been encountering an issue as of late, at least on mobile, since I am without a PC due to it going up in smoke from a power surge. The issue is quite simple, but as for what is causing it or what is the remedy for it, I have no clue.
It happens whenever I try to load a save that includes the premade character option. I have not tried the othfer 3, but as for the Neko premade character, it happens without fail whenever I paste the save data and hit the OK button to load it. The game simply is stuck loading the data. It does not progress and it shows the same text, minus the options for a character start or save loading.
Please Choose From The List Of Options Below”
The rest is black, just like the rest, just without the options of creating a new custom character, a premade, or loading data.
I can send the save data through an email or PM if need be, but I do not know if that will help at all. If it is of any importance, I saved in the tutorial(after the escape from the horde), much like I always have, but I later saved somewhere in the house and do not have the data of the first save, as I had progressed from there.
I know not why it does this, but it is extremely disheartening as it removes the ability to use a premade character’s save data. Well, more along the lines of, you just can’t load it. You can start off as them just fine, it’s the loading issue that negates the purpose of using them. I an unaware if this works without an issue on an actual PC, but as for mobile users, this is a giant pain to deal with.
I also noticed during my own character creation, loading the save data would sometimes cause stats and other values, such as sexuality and mood and other things, to be changed. It is random when it does it, as far as I know, but when it happens, it is a very saddening issue, as it ruins the custom made character. Again, happens on mobile, not sure about regular Pc users.
I love text based stuff, and this game has my interest and I am deeply into it. But those two issues are a hinderance on playability without having to restart.
The ability to save ones data and post it into a document or on a note, is extremely handy. I advise keeping this as an option, as you never know when locally saved data derps out and becomes fucky.
