Feedback is always appreciated, Hope you all enjoy this version.

I just gave the game a try,

I’m really excited to see where you take this project as I don’t know a lot of open-world weight gain/expansion games that don’t use RPG maker. Keep up the excellent work!

Hello! First, how do you do that Himiko event? and is there a way to progress time so fullness decreases?
Secondly, I just wanted to give a thought/complaint. Simply put, this game is surprisingly intensive on my computer. And for what it’s worth it doesn’t need to be. The lighting is often TOO bright, and the motion blur makes me a little dizzy

The UI is kinda broken and really hard to navigate on non 16:9 screens. I’ve got a 16:10 screen and the UI is constantly off screen making it difficult to interact with

What resolution are you playing at? I can use it to help resize stuff to work better with other resolutions.

The Himiko event got turned into the shop event. I forgot how terrible I am at writing, so I decided to focus on other content first, sorry.

Currently theres no way to pass time, but I’ll add a way to next update, whether it’s just a button or interacting with a bench or a bed.

As for performance, I know it’s a rough at the moment. I’m trying to optimize it as best as I can, but I think I forgot to disable a camera or two, which makes the game run a lot worse.

I’m disabling motion blur for next update and will put an option in the settings to change it. I meant to disable it in the first place but completely forgot.

I’ll do my best to tone down the lighting without making it look weird.

Thank you for the feedback :slight_smile:

I use 2560x1600. On another display I might use 1600x1200

Cool thanks. I’ll get that fixed :+1:
