This was so good! 

I really like how the context and the things that happen during the story kinda make you feel like you're trapped. The whole "we're pursued by this powerful group and aren't really safe anywhere" +  the different scenes when you are actually trapped (in the forest with Aziel and his troops, when you meet the Rebels near the shrine, when you fall into Aziel's trap...) and feel like you can't escape (because you're literally surrounded by enemies), it was really great. 

Another thing that left a strong eimpression on me was everything that happened with Aura. I have sisters, of course I relate. And the fact that you aren't even able to bring back her body is really a hard blow, good job on that. I felt really bad for the whole first part of the game. 

And the very last part of the demo, when you finally understand how the first thing is linked to the rest, but that only brings more questions... (+ Aura coming back to stab my poor heart) It was great as well, it really hit me.

Sorry, my comment is kind of a mess, I've just finished the demo (its was a really long demo, that surprised me) and I'm still thinking about it (and english isn't my first language). But really, it was great, and I'm definitely going to buy and play the whole game when it comes out! Thank you for this really cool game and keep up the good work!

Wow, don't worry about your comment being a mess, I just read it and it totally made my day :D I'm happy the game and it's characters connected in that way to you - I also have a sister and I totally get were that emotional response comes from, so it's always interesting to hear how these things resonate with different players.

Thank you for taking the time to comment! I hope you stick around for future updates :)

I absolutely loved your game. The story is very interesting and it's very cool how I can talk to my own character. I do have a few tips and glitches found.

Glitches:

First of all with the train rail puzzle there is a cave with a chest, you can open the chest and get an item but the name of the item is a code and it shows a blank in your item screen. 

There was also some German text at the Prosophina (Is that how you write her name?) church her altar. after you talked to masame and then went into the church.

 Tips:

There are a lot of times where you just have to wait for nothing. Like the screen stands still to build up tension probably but that takes to long and actually has the oppisite effect. I also didn't get to know Raphael and Sarah that much even though their characters were very interesting. And an explanation on who Haily is would've been nice as well.

Things I did like:

I loved how I could talk to shawn. The battles were also very fun. It may be a bit hard for people but that's why we have easy mode right ;). It's also very cool how many quest and secrets you implented (Although I could only do 1 or something because i was too invested in the story)


Very good game overall and I'd give it a 8/10. I hope more will come soon. Is there anyway I can get a notification for new content?

P.s. Sorry for my grammer English isn't my first language.

Thank you so much for your detailed feedback on how you liked the story! I'll try to fix the glitches & missing translations ASAP :) A few people have mentioned the waiting times in certain scenes. In some occasions the game actually loads stuff in the background, but these few spots will get better in the next release.

You can subscribe to the game here on itch.io, I'll post a devlog when a content update comes around. I'm generally in the midst of setting a few things up on the homepage, but for now you can keep an eye on the page here :)

(+1)

okay I will. Guess I'll be anxiously waiting now. Keep up the good work.

One of the few games that made me look forward to playing it again.

Great story overall, interesting mechanics, but the mainest main characters need a bit more screen time. I know that this is just a demo but I feel like Raphael was just... there. I just didn't feel much with him as a character and once even forgot that I'm supposed to be saving him. Needs  more emphasis on writing the other characters, but the main plotline is still great, and I would definitely recommend this game to others. (I kinda did)

9/10 - beat my expectations

PS: I tried to make this review objective, but I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED this GAME!!!!!!!! Looking forward to new releases!!!

(1 edit)

Hey there! Thank you so much for your honest feedback, I really do appreciate it :) I think about the characters and how to present them and their motivations a lot. I guess it's one of the hardest things to master in storytelling to create believable characters. 

Raphael's struggle shifts way more into focus in the upcoming 2nd chapter but I've already implemented some revised parts for the earlier sections of the game (not released yet) to make the whole quest feel more urgent. 

Again thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! I hope you stick around for the next chapter!

Hey! I just wanted to say, I love the game and I'm playing it way to much trying to find things I've missed, but I thought I should let you know that some of the text is still in German. I just figured you would want to know. Bye!

Hey, thank you for the feedback! Damn, I thought I catched all of them. You don't have a list of all the untranslated lines per chance? :D

(1 edit) (+1)

It's when you try to leave the village without talking to Shawn's dad, and at the alter in the last few minutes of the game, when you're looking for a switch. But there may be more.

Thanks! :)

hi starlit i know you are working hard on things but thank for everything you are pretty amazing developer just want let you know we all love this keep working hard love you 

p.s thank you make this game and good luck starlit 

love ilow :3

Hey ilow! Thank you so much for the nice and motivating words, this made my morning a 1000 times more enjoyable today :D I'll give my best to deilver a great game to all of you!

when is the chapter 2 gonna be released :( this is taking even longer than for miraculous tales of ladybug and cat noir episodes to come out and trust me its like 1-2 months between episodes. people are killing me i cant stand all the cliff hangers

Hey there, I know how you feel! I totally get that waiting for a cliffhanger to be resolved sucks, but this is a one-man show and story-driven RPGs like this generally take a lot of time and effort to be made. So please understand that I need to take the time I need to deliver all of you a good and entertaining experience :)

wish we can help you so you can be done sooner

Thanks! :) The feedback & comments I receive on this page really motivates me but you can also support the project by buying it here on itch.io https://starlit.itch.io/numina/purchase or donate on https://buymeacoff.ee/49Tfe57Vy which helps me to spend more time on the project & pay my composer :)

Umm.....i cant get out in the cave!Any Help?

btw its AMAZING GAME!!!!!BEST COMBAT STYLE AND ART!

Hey there! Which cave do you mean? The Shimmering Hollows? Can you describe what just happened in the game storywise, to give me a rough idea where you're at? c:

yes The Shimmering Hollows im stuck there..and im been playing the game for AN HOUR but cant GET OUT...when i killed the bandits in the cave..and the mother and the daughter run in the bottom rigth?so i followed them....and thengot stuck :P

Go back to the larger room where you fought the bandits and then head to the far upper left over a wooden bridge. From there you should be able continue. Hope this helps! :)

oh...i did not NOTICE THAT AT ALL!!....HOLY MOLY THANKS DEV HAVE A GREAT DAY!

NO WORRIES GLAD TO HELP! YOU TOO! :D

(+1)

Ohmygood I'm super excited for the continuation!! The backgrounds are beautiful and I grew really attached to the characters.  You could see how much work you had to put into it. How long did it take to develop the demo? :o

The only thing I didn't like aesthetically that much is the map (where you travel from one town to the other). I don't know if you plan to change/or improve it but the 3D design didn't work out that well in my opinion.

All in all, I must say you did such a well done with the writing of the story, the concept is very interesting and tbh I'm just amazed how you could create a whole new world :D

I can't wait to buy the whole game!! And good luck!!

<3

Heeey thank you so much for your kind words! Honestly, I don't really want to think about how long it took me. But at least 4 years up to now, with lots of reworking and some pauses.

You're talking about the overworld, right? The Mode7 was kind of an homage to earlier RPGs but I totally get your point :D Coincidentally, I'm currently redesigning it, because the old Mode7-plugin I was using doesn't work with newer versions of the game engine. So I'll propably end up without the 3D :D

Thanks again for your comment! I really appreciate the feedback c:

Hey starlit! It's me, ThatBoyHM! I sadly have to say that i deleted the channel along with all my Numina videos. I'm now known as "HoussemPlayingGames" and i don't think i'll be coming back to this game sadly. Hope you understand and good luck with the game!

(+1)

Hey there! Sorry to hear about your channel and don't worry. Although I hope, that you'll come back when the new chapter releases :)

(+1)

I have been playing this game and this is one of my all time favorites. Keep up the good work on this and can't wait for the full version to come out

(+1)

Thank you very much! :)

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! :) 

Thanks again!

(+1)

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:

  1. 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. 
  2. 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

That would be amazing! Please send your compilation to contact@starlit-studio.com :) Thank you!

Can do!

Hey there! I'm working hard on it but you have to be a liiiiiiitle bit patient :D

(+1)

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 very much!  :)

(+1)

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 ^_^

And thank you so much for playing it! :) Happy you enjoyed it!

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.

(1 edit)

Okay, we can try a few things. 

  1. 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. 
  2. 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!

Hey there! Thanks so much for your enthusiasm & interest in the game! ๐Ÿ˜Š 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...)

The demo was done in RPG Maker XP, but I'm working with a never version of the engine now :) I did a few map-design videos in the past. But I could also do some things on coding. You can check out my YouTube Channel or Twitch for that!

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.

(1 edit) (+1)

Oh, sorry! I thought there was considering in the Text option, there was a "Allow Skip" choice available. Sorry, again.

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? 

Deleted post

hi, tried sening it but "info@starlit-studio.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!

(+1)

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 ^^ !!!

Good luck

Syoick.

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!

(+1)

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!

(2 edits)

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.

No worries! It's good that the bugs get found :) I'm currently not familiar with the itch.io desktop app but you can just delete the game's directory to uninstall it. 

(1 edit) (+1)

Hey Man, just got back to this. Hope you finish the game soon! Looking forward to it! Cheers! and Goodluck!

Thank you! :)

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.

(+1)

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 :)

(-2)

i can t uninstall your game 

Just delete the directory, there's no installer needed :D
