Amazing! I have recorded 4 parts and cant wait to get the next part! The music is beautiful, the story is to captivating and the begining pulld on my heart strings! Combat is interesting for turn-base. 10/10 game so far to me.

Oh, wow thank you so much for your kind words. You're AgentJ on YT right? I got a notification on Facebook about your LPs. Definitely going to watch & share them later this week! :)
You're very much welcome, and yes im Agent J. I honestly cant wait when this game is released. Ive posted my recording on your game on Facebook, as well as Tuber's Amino and will be glad to see that you guys will be chacking outmy video! Hope you enjoy it, even though its got no commentary.
is it done yet just saying (:
Sadly not, I'm sorry :D It'll take a few more months at least. But I'll soon release a big news update on the game's progress.
How to get the game started? I clicked on the launcher app but nothing happened.
Hey there! I need a bit more information to help you: Does a black window pop up? Or do you see nothing at all? What OS are you running?
Nothing at all. I'm using windows 10.
What happens if you open the bin-directory and then execute the Game.exe inside of it?
I did it already, and nothing happened. This is weird. I tried to run it with administration and without antivirus app, still hopeless.
We can try something else:
- Open the game's folder. Navigate to "bin/Fonts", right-click on the "Formal436 BT.ttf"-Fontfile and select "Install". This should install the game's font on your system.
- Then go up one directory to "bin" and start the Game.exe in that directory again.
I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!
The story is addicting (makes you crave for more!), the art is beautiful (I especially like the part on that windy hills(?) where they first met cassandra and masame). I like the combat system too . There are a few bugs here and there, but that to be expected (it's still in development, after all).
Do you have at least an estimation when the full version will be released?
Hey there! Wow, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you like that part where the party gets introduced to Cassandra, I had so much fun working on that part :)
Not really at the moment. I'm working full force on it, but I have still a lot of work ahead of me. But please stay around for future updates on the game's progress :) Thanks again!
This game is incredible. i spent a day playing the demo. I am really looking forward for the full version. The graphic of the game is well-elaborated and the story line is intriguing. One thing I found as a problem is that whenever I am facing the wild beasts, if i want to escape I can't, rather the game clashes and shuts down.
Thank you so much for your feedback :) I'm glad you enjoyed the game! And sorry about the apparent bug with escaping, I'll look into it as soon as possible.
Hey there's a bug in the demo when Shawn and Raphael are trying to get up the path with the grappling hook- The mountain goats (I think?) should be moving at random and you can move past them but one is standing still and blocking the way. If this isn't a glitch and I'm just being stupid then please let me know! This game looks fantastic so far!
You mean the goats up the stone stairs or the ones up on the cliff where you only get with the hook? Because the latter just have a small treasure lying around near them. To progress you have to go back down and head north for the stairs. Hope this helps! :)
the one with the hook. I'm a completionist when it comes to video games, especially before they come out officially because it helps to test for glitches. Speaking of which, I've found some more, mostly small things, but one causes the game to close. I can email the pictures/videos or I can try to do it over the comments. If you have an email or a discord that you would be willing to share though, that would be appreciated
Yes, very visually impressive and beautiful ^_^~
A lot of work. Well done \o/
is finished now plz I been waiting for a week 😞
I love this game!!!!!!
is it ready yet please plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz your fan ilow :3
the game numina bye love you
This is one of the best free games i've played so far. Keep up the good work man, excited for the full release!
Thank you so much for not making this a german-only release. I've always wanted to play games like this. Can't wait to buy the finished version ^_^
I'm having issues running the game, everytime I open it the game freezes.
Okay, I need a bit more information to help you: Does a black window pop up? Or do you see nothing at all? What OS are you running?
a black window pops up and it says it is not responding, I am running windows 10.
Okay, we can try a few things.
- Open the game's folder. Navigate to "bin/Fonts", right-click on the "Formal436 BT.ttf"-Fontfile and select "Install". This should install the game's font on your system.
- Then go up one directory to "bin" and start the Game.exe in that directory.
If that works you'll propably have to always start the game through the bin/Game.exe. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience and I hope this solves your problem!
Undertale + Link = THIS MASTERPIECE
is the chapter 2 coming soon
It'll take some time, I'm currently estimating somewhere next year. Thank you very much for your interest & please stick around for future updates! 🙂

Hey there! Thanks so much for your enthusiasm & interest in the game! 😊 I'm working hard on the release of the next chapter. I guess it'll be around next year.
Hi, I just downloaded the game but the grappling hook doesn't seem to be working?
Where are you trying to use it exactly? :o
I can see the exclamation mark which I believe indicates that I can call an action? However, when I press Enter, it does nothing.
Can you tell me the location/place in the game where this happens?
Paths of Shrouding Mist.
I'll look into it. Sorry for the inconvenience!
Okay, I have to admit that this spot is a bit finicky. You have to be on these exact spots to activate the hook:
I'll make it a bit more clearer where to stand. But for now, please use the above screenshot as a reference. And once again, sorry for the inconvenience!
What did you use to develop it and do you think you could release a tutorial? You would get plenty of views if you shared your magnificent work of art. ( also I am bored and I want to learn the ways of a coding master... this is the reason I asked...)
Not really an important question, but how do you use the skip option?
Do you mean to skip dialogues? Currently, there's no such feature in the game.
problem solved and already finished it! im waiting for more updates and chapters! :D
Hello! I just want to ask--When I'm following Aura on the very foggy forest and she lead me to the north, there was a tree trunk and the white "!" shows up but I can't use my Grappling Hook on it. What should I do about that?
Hey there! Please download the latest version of the game - there's a new update from 2 days ago that should solve this issue :) You can just copy your savefiles over. Feel free to ask if you need any further help!
Hi, I have the same problem and I downloaded the game yesterday, so I already downloaded your games with the updates from 2 days ago? please tell me how I can fix it.
Hmm, that's odd :/ Can you send me your save files to info(at)starlit-studio.com please?
hi, tried sening it but "email@example.com because the address couldn't be found"...
Okay? I got the email anyways. I'll try to fix this as soon as possible, please excuse the inconvenience.
I fixed the issue. Please download the latest version through the itch.io-app or overwrite your existing game directory. Your existing savefiles won't be affected. Let me know, if you need any further help!
Hello! I'm french so I understand your game at... 85% but I've not finished the game. I'm blocked [SPOIL!!!] where there is Aura in the fog but when I'm front of the hill I can't use my grapple :/ please help me, because I REALLY like your game !!
I hope that I am the first french to have tested the game ^^ !!!
Salut Syoick! I actually had french classes in school for 5 years but sadly, I forgot it all afterwards :D
That's actually a bug introduced by an update, sorry for the inconvenience. Please download the latest version of the game to resolve the issue!
any plans for a mac release?
Actually yes! :) It'll come with a major update of the game which is planned for early 2018. Keep an eye on the devlogs for future announcements.
(I'm playing the game from the itch.io desktop app) The auto-fullscreen setting doesn't work: it's bugged, even with a gamesave. One time, though, without a gamesave, the auto-fullscreen setting was on, but it didn't fullscreen but when I closed and reopened it, it fullscreened regardless of setting it to off, even with a gamesave. Just from the intro alone, this game has me hooked, but this auto-fullscreen bug is getting in the way of enjoying the game.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Try toggling fullscreen manually by pressing ALT+ENTER as a workaround. I hope you enjoy the rest of the game!
Thank you for the workaround: it worked. I really hope you find the source of the fullscreen bug. When I made that post, though, it was after the new update was released, so maybe a fullscreen setting bug happened. I'll reinstall the game to see if that'll resolve anything.
There are various issues like that with the (admittedly dated) engine of the game, which are sadly also not reproducible on all systems. But let me know if the reinstall resolved the issue. Thank you very much!
Reinstalling did resolve the issue. But, I think the actual issue was that saving the game after changing the auto-fullscreen setting caused it to bug out: If that's a problem that can be patched out, great! Also, since I reinstalled the game from the itch.io desktop app, now whenever I click on "check for update", there's no acknowledgement that an update check was made. I think that has more to do with the app itself than the game's installation. So, I'll try as clean a reinstall as possible to see if that resolves this newfound issue. UPDATE: I can't uninstall the game from the itch.io desktop app. So if any updates come in, I might not receive them. Sorry if I'm causing so many problems for you.
Hey Man, just got back to this. Hope you finish the game soon! Looking forward to it! Cheers! and Goodluck!
Really cool game, I really like the idea of being a disembodied voice that can talk to the main charcter. The attacking system with timing spices up the fights and makes the characters much more unique. I've only played for a bit but it's very enjoyable so far.
I do have to say that there was a place that hadn't been translated near the start that said "Hier geht es nicht zum Wolkentempel."
There was also a bug I found in the forest where you first pass the gate into town, if you try to go back to the forest the game will give you an error message and crash.
That is also the furthest I've been in this game at the point of making this comment.
Thank you very much for your feedback! :) I hope you didn't loose too much progress because of the bug. I'll fix that as soon as possible.
No I'm the perfectionist type so I save frequently so don't worry about that, just to be clear, there were no other bugs I found up to that point.
There was however something minor I forgot to mention in my previous comment, the sword you get through the secret pathway before talking to the girl with the pink hair, once you actually pick up the sword, you can't interact with it but the sprite stays there.
That was all I found :)
i can t uninstall your game
I looooooooooooooooved it!! Thank you so much for creating this!! The story, graphics, music, combat system, character designs -- theyre all so beautiful and captivating. I really liked how the players were involved, in having to make choices and being able to play a 'minigame' in the combat system!
Some minor things you might want to know:
There were some interactions that havent been translated into English. (mostly the interactions in the church at Caelum, and some at the Academy in Caelum (the statues x) ))
Also, in my opinion, I feel like the trailer could have included some of the interesting storyline in the game. Im sure including some snippets of the story would make the game even more attractive to others :))
Thank you once more for all the hard work and effort!! <3
Thank you for your kind words! I'm happy that you felt the impact of the choices :) I'll try to fix all the missing translations and I'll definitely work on a new trailer for the next release, I'm not that happy about the latest one myself :D
Congrats on the game! It is just GREAT. It's been a very long that I don't play an RPG that good and which would make me play for straight hours, get tense, laugh and trying to guess what would happen after. :) Battle system is amazing (I love turn-based systems!), story seems great, characters have good personality and I just can't wait for the rest of it! Thank you very much for bringing it to English! In case you want to bring it into PT-BR let's talk!
Also, I would like to report a missing translation: Image (text in German)
But maybe you're aware of this one. ^^' Cheers and SMASH THE 4TH WALL! <3
That's so nice & motivating to hear, thank you :) Glad you enjoyed the game! And sure, I'd love to bring the game to as many languages as possible. Hit me up under contact(at)starlit-studio.com
And thanks for pointing out the missing translation! :)
THE BEST RPG i have played in a long, long time. Love how there was always a choice for the better or the worse. Can't wait to see how the Story goes one, i am in a deep hole right know because i was so engaged with your story!
Thank you so much for the great praise! :) It makes me very happy hearing that people can connect with the game's story and characters. I can't wait to share the upcoming chapters with everyone!
This game is amazing. I love the world you have created and my favorite part was that each choice felt significant and not easily discernable what the "right" answer is. I feel that is an underrepresented detail that makes RPGs exceptional
Wow thank you so much for your kind words! :) I'm happy that you liked it and hope you're around for the upcoming chapters!
For me, I like the story and the battle system got me engaged instead of button mashing like a zombie.
There were few texts that were in foreign language. Wished the inspect skill shows how down the enemy's heatlh bar was.
I only did one play-through, so I was wondering would the story drastically changed if I don't help a few characters? Or some choices that can possibly prevent a certain character's death?
Otherwise, great game. Looking forward to ch 2!
Hey thank you for your honest feedback! :) I'm planning on integrating an ability to inspect an enemy's HP-bar for a future release.
Regarding the choices: Most of them affect your relationship towards other characters which has an impact on their special abilities and end-game story routes. But there aren't any drastic story branches within chapter 1.
This games sounds amazing. You HAVE to make more like these, hope it isn't to hard though :P
Thanks so much! :) I only finished the first chapter of Numina, which is the demo you can download on here and I'm currently working on the remaining chapters so there definitely will be more to come!
MORE TO COME? YES!
As someone who hates boss battles, how easy is easy mode? I like games to be a relaxing experience so sure hope this isn't a hard game :/
Easymode drops off 10% on all enemy-stats so battles should be easier. But I tried to design all the battles so, that no grinding should be needed :) At least not in normal and easy mode. Otherwise please let me know, if you find that the easy mode doesn't meet your expectations!
Some questions if you don't mind :-).
I sorta skipped the part where they tell hw to use grappling hooks and items, mind telling me so? :)
Also, what does it mean when I attack and it says "Too early" or "Too late", how do I avoid?
I like the game so far, good job! :P
Glad you like it! :) The grappling hook can be used at specific spots where a white "!"-icon popps up. You have to press Q on your keyboard and select the grappling-hook from the menu to activate it. I have to admit it's a bit convoluted, but I'm working on a simpler solution for a future update :)
Have you set the "Battle Tutorial" option to ON? You should have gotten a tutorial on the action commands. Basically you have to hit enter as soon as the two circles overlap. Hope this helps!
This game looks amazing! I've heard so many good things about it! I can't wait to download it!
Heystarlit, so i got past the guards, but there's another problem. I don't know where to go after that. That forest is so big! I was gonna record the eighth episode today (21/08/2017) but that got in the way. Can you help me again? Thanks! Oh, and sorry to bother you.
After escaping the house, you'll have to exit the first map to the north across the river. From there always head north and you should be fine :) And don't apologize, I'm happy to help!
I am wondering... Are you actually supposed to get past that Crystalite boss? Because I can't defeat that thing no matter how long I hack at it because it just keeps healing itself.
Yes :) Keep an eye on the surrounding crystals, some of them blink before healing/buffing up the main boss. You gotta take care of them before going at the boss (you can actually attack them).
Hello starlit! I wanted to ask if you could help me with something in the game. You see, if you go and watch my video at the end i got stuck at the part where you escape from the guards. Can you help me with that? Thank you!
