    This story is still in my head. The scenery is stunning and the story made me cry a couple times. I wish the gameplay was a little better (jumping functions, knowing where I can and can’t jump up on/ walk on) Excellent game. Well done.

    Really beautiful game. Graphics, music and story too. Unfortunately a huge glitch after 3rd pup at tree. Re-booted phone. Restarted that section 4-5 times to no avail. Could not finish the game... 🥺 Uninstalled
  • Amazing for the team size, but frustrating gameplay and disappointing narrative Dec 1, 2020

    While this is a very creative game and highly impressive given the tiny design team, I did not enjoy it. Gameplay quickly became frustrating and unfulfilling - I just wanted to get to the end. Moreover, while the concept was clever, I felt it was poorly executed. It felt immature and a bit, well, cliche. Death and loss are complex subjects worthy of exploitation, but this was just one negative anecdote after another interspersed with frustrating gameplay. It felt like an exercise in angst. Having lost more than my share of loved ones throughout my life, this reminded me most of my thought process and emotions at loosing a parent when 13 - not something I would wish to subject anyone else to for hours! That said, I want to commend the team for their work, especially given the small team size. It is a brilliant idea, and executed quite well given the resources available.

    Highly recommend it. It was a stellar experience when I played it first at launch, and that hasn't changed yet. Love this project david. Can't wait to see what else you come up with. A small thing to note- I don't know if you plan to do any patches, and, or bug fixing, but the subtitles don't scale very well. The background alone takes half the screen on a one plus 7 phone. Not a deal breaker as subtitles aren't usually essential, but they aren't usable in this case....

    I haven’t gotten all the way through yet so I have yet to see the entire story but I’ll comment anyways. The controls on the fox and camera are lackluster sadly. There’s no turning animation and the camera’s axis seems to be some kind of orbit rather than a center point. I’d suggest changing this to make the game more engaging. The first ultimate fox simulator by Gluten Free Games and this game uses the same fox model so his game would be a good example to go off with what I’ve suggested. I think those minor tweaks would make the gameplay feel smoother. The story so far is quite enjoyable, but the voice acting feels a little cheesy. It can be hard to write and narrate a story without visuals but I think it would have been possible to make it slightly more down to earth. Still I’ve enjoyed this game so far and look forward to finishing.

    This is the type of game I normally gravitate towards. Wonderful graphics, simple interface and a world to explore. This has those options but other more menacing and awful choices. Not all games are required to have a meta-narrative and once more one that prevents the user, you and I, the option to turn this off and enjoy exploring the world. This game and its developers think their voice over is as important as the game illustrators. That is mighty big head you have there. The voice over is not only a turn off - it is the reason I deleted this app after 10 minutes of play time. Sure, call mine impatient or not Zen minded enough or a person without enough wholeness free-range organic sprit to fill a Vermont creamery. I am non of those things. I am rather average but I am from Vermont. Many games try. Most fail. This is a fail.

    Refunded, all you do is run around hours on end and collect stars for no purpose.

    I played the game on steam and android port is excellent. One of the most beautiful and fun adventure games I've played ina while and I'm so glad that I now have the ability to pick up and play it anywhere anytime. If you have been looking for a new adventure game to play on android than this is it. I can't recommend it more. Truly a 10/10!

  • Beutiful and inspiring! Nov 20, 2020

    By MikeW338
    The story is engaging and frankly beautiful! The only thing I had an issue with was I got a tiny bit lost on some occasions, but I understand that was intentional so I would wander around and find where I need to go. I love how you did this! It adds character to an already jaw dropping story. The controls were a little rough but I figured it out. I also absolutely love that in the mode thingy you have little notes and stories about your adventure beginning development! This was extremely inspirational to me as I am a teen working towards game development with my family. I loved your game and even though this is one of the shortest reviews I’ve wrote, that’s because I have no more to say about this game. My simple review: simply beautiful and inspiring!

    I wish it had missions like to hunt food and I wish there was like a town you get to interact with or something like that
