Just tried this on Firefox and it seems to be working fine! Very interesting concept

Actually, I entered the lower left door and the game froze after I got hit by the red laser beam

what am i supposed to do with the animals? i don't have anything to make music with???? also how do i catch the squirrel? maybe if i give the squirrel my nuts? but idk how please help

I don't know what I'm doing wrong with the animals. 

The style and music is pretty awesome though, but sometimes the backgrounds (ie trees or people) cover the character if they get too close then the dimensions looks wonky. Other than that, 10/10

Hey, love the style! Love the music! Love the Point! Love the Click!
I came to reports some of the bugs I have encountere: (I am using Chrome)

- When I encountered the ghost, he has the "HEHEHE" text above him, froze for 5 seconds, and the text box was frozen above while the other text was played over it.

- After talking to the ghost (Text box still there btw) I don't know if anything is supposed to happen (I think the ghost mentioned doors popping up?) but nothing happened, so I talked to the ghost again and he brought me to an empty space to train with a bow I never acquired. I coundn't talk to the ghost again, so I assumed I was softlocked.


Don't know if this helps, but I'll keep playing and post updates.

*Update*

Just tried resuming my game, now I'm frozen while the ghost is saying "alright, Nancy." (Edit: All I can do is check inventory)

Gonna try starting over

Just played a little more, ghost actually did some different text boxes and animations, got the bow, doors appeared... looks good so far

*Update*

Resumed and finished the top left room with no problems, then I went in the top right, went back, then into the bottom right, finished the area to the right with the archery challenge, got +2 gems, then move two areas to the left, checked the stone wall, and then the bird, then the wall again, then moved to the right and exited through the door, now I am softlocked (Specifically: Can't move, interact with anything, open inventory, return through the door I came through)

*Glitch encountered*: If you keep you mouse in the same place and spam left click, cursor will move down and wont return to its position unless you move the mouse. 

Gonna try exiting and resuming game, but I'll probably have to restart

thanks for the great feedback, much appreciated! i uploaded a new version that fixes a bunch of spam clicking issues and other general bug fixes. probably still not perfect, but hopefully this version will work better for you!

The character is just a big black box. I tried the game on chrome on my PC and my tablet and the same problem happens. I tried the executable too but no luck :(

ah! sorry to hear that. i believe it's a WebGL issue of not being able to render textures of certain sizes. i'm going to look and see if there's a workaround to not use WebGL and fallback to canvas only. in the meantime, could you check to make sure chrome is up to date?

Chrome is up to date and I think this won't change anything as the problem happens with executable which is just another chrome. I first thought that it is a problem with my graphics card which is quite old but it happened with all of my android phones. Thanks anyway and good luck with your project :)

Guys pls help i can't use the "bow". is this because i didn't collect a bow yet or something? or is it bc i'm in firefox?

Chrome only supported for now.  If you wouldn’t mind, please try out the executable downloads as those should all work. 

Gave you a follow, my guy. Good game!

thanks for checking it out :)

my character just shows up as a large black box, is this because im on firefox?

Yep. Chrome only for now,  unfortunately I haven’t had the time to troubleshoot on any other browsers.  If you wouldn’t mind, try out the executable downloads as those should all work. 

Awesome entry. Love the witty writing and simple mechanics. I got stuck after I got the conch though, didn't really get what to do next. Also there were some bugs and I ended up getting softlocked at some points but thats to be expected I guess.

thanks for playing! could you provide more context around what happened with the bugs? would love to get those resolved.

So in the horde defence stage I shot the first few birds and then nothing else spawned and I couldn't exit the scene. Another one was when I tried quickly clicking through the dialogue in the hub area. That ended up opening like 6 or more dialogues and I couldn't close them all and could no longer click on the doors. In general you could fix a lot of stuff with more input checking. I was able to spam click on the deer for example, making him sing like 500 times and freezing his anim. Oh and I didn't really get how to use the conch so I didn't finish the game.  Was there an explanation that I missed or sth?

thanks for the feedback! i posted an update that should hopefully address some of those spam clicking issues with doors and dialog boxes.

Great game. Mechanics were pretty great. Love what you did with the pixel ropes too.

thank you! i tried to use them in as many was as i could :)
