Glad to see this is back in the making... was really worried when all of a sudden it stopped getting updated for months on end. It's a beautiful visual novel, and it's easing to know that nothing bad happened when the updates randomly stopped.

Não consigo salvar o jogo na versão Android

interesting story you have started I don't know why but automatically thought the main character should be with Angus a little disappointed that he only has one day really was going to check out Row  but I could already tell he was going to be like Tyson from password just I guess even though I love characters like that for some reason I just couldn't do it LOL I know you want to finish row first before Angus or Krieger but I hope to see more for Angus eventually LOL keep up the good work

(+1)

Thank you for playing the game. There's no "one-true route" at the moment, athough, as you noticed, Angus does kinda fit that role :) For me, nothing is yet set in stone, so I guess time will tell.

wow I was not expecting the creator of the visual novel 2 even comment back talk about leaving me speechless a little bit like I said Angus is perfect for well

(+1)

guess which homosexual finally got to find time to play gay visual novels
THIS GUY✨😄

Anyways- I really loved the new update haha, Not much to comment on except that it was overall a fun update and it was already perfect as it is ^^

Finally got to read so well deserved ass spanking. it's nice to see Angus and Kegar becoming "Really good friends" (?) and how we got more backstory content for welkin our little cinnamon boi hehe
I've taken a better liking to Rowley now haha, Kegar's still my favorite though

finally, thanks again for the new update Ty! remember to take rests every now and then and goo luck on the future updates!

Thanks for checking out the new update, Ace! :3

(+1)

you're welcome TY! hehe

Would it work if i transferred my old saves into the new version?

It should work if the save is from recent version (2,3 demos before the current one). I don't reccomend doing it, but if you do, please let me know how it went :-)

The option I do reccomend, however, is starting the game via "New Game" and then selecting "Continue from a specific point in the story" and then skipping from there to where you were the last time.

(+1)

I copy pasted the files from the save folder from the older version and it opened them and I was able to play with no issues so far.

Thank you for letting me know about it, I'm happy to hear it.

The android app is soo slow and it crashes from time to time--

(1 edit)

Where is the save file located at on Android? What is the name? Not in Android/data folders... any help would be appreciated 

Hey, as far as I know due to the nature of the engine and how it handles Android version of the game (it's basically a web-browser game in a wrapper) the saves are stored Chrome's (?) root folders and are not accessible in a normal way.

If you lost your saves, simply start the game via "New Game" and then select "Continue from a specific point in the story" - you can choose either a specific Day, or the moment when the story splits into character routes.

I was just wanting to create a back/potentially move to pc. But I don't want to start over ahaha. But is it possible to access with another app maybe?

Is it me or does that mac version not work?

(1 edit)

Hey, if you're experiencing problems with the MacOS version of the game (unable to save the progress, or run the application), please try out the Web-Browser Version.

Is day 3 for all the routes all done or is there some stuff that still needs to be added in?

Yes, day3 is complete for every character.

(+1)

After two days being away, I was finally able to play the new update!

haha seriously didn't expect THAT much, a surprise for sure but a welcomed one at that.

was expecting the "paint me like one of your French girls" reference but not too down about it, so many illustrations! it was a treat reading this new update about my favorite lion, was so overjoyed when IT finally happened

thank you for blessing me with this master piece haha, I loved very moment and hope to return for more in the future

your friend

Hey, Ace. I'm glad you liked the new update. It took me a while to write that scene, and fun fact, it actally got slightly expanded since it's initial patreon release.

(+1)

ooh neat, Thanks for all your hard work TY! and once again, I love the VN haha

(1 edit)

lol, idk how to fix, I'm too dumb

Edit: nvm I fixed it

Damn.  Arthur I can be your master whenever you want. You cute, fluffy bear. Polar Bear Emoji on Samsung Phones

Cute bear sticker! 8)

I have tried so more than 38 times so far to get it on my Mac and I tried everything I think of it's still not letting me play it it just keeps booting me off or said you wanted to try open again and if I do put again it keeps getting a loop of do you want to try open again and again the way it looks it lo

- If you're experiencing problems with the MacOS version of the game (unable to save the progress, or run the application), please try out the Web-Browser Version

I just tried it and I'm having trouble because of some half of words get cut off for the website version 

With monitor aspect ratios other than 16:9, itch's web player probably won't scale and/or fit the viewport properly.

Try to hit F3 during the gameplay - the game should change the display size to fit in your screen.

(+1)

Oh cool, it does do that. Fits perfectly fine, thanks.

when's the next update? 

The next public update (Kegar's last part of Day3) should arrive in about a week from now (there's some proofreading to do).

(+3)

Hope to see Arthur route someday..

(+1)

Who knows, maybe one day? :)

A little Fun Fact!

You can find the same BGM in this update (v.0.18.0) in the game called Muse Dash at "Achievement" section in the game setting.

I accidentally found it a couple of minutes ago and I feel "Maybe it'll be something fun to share" 😅

Oh, yeah, it is! The BGM was composed by a group MusMus. I love their stuff- these are the most used tracks in my game.

(1 edit)

Does anyone know what's the problem with the Mac version of the game because I can't play it every time I downloaded the game 

(+1)

Uhhh mating press?? 

(+1)

when's the next angus update?

(+3)

It's hard to tell at the moment, because I'm still fully focused on Rowley's route (the next public update will be for Kegar, then there are be two for Rowley).

(1 edit)

Is it just me that experiences the lag or rather slow?

I've played both PC and Android and I haven't encounter any problem.

Try enabling "FPS Synch" in options menu - it should help if your display is set below 60hz, or if the game is not rendering in 60fps.

i've enabled it-- it's not that slow anymore but kinda laggy

So… wow! I like to review this VN, but let me just speak my mind for now…

Though the art seems out of place, I recommend anyone to try it at least. I do really think it will be worth your time.

Update 05/06/2022: And sorry for judging this game for how the art looked instead of the content. I should know better since I had found hidden gems thanks to stopping my self from judging the art of a VN. One of those gems is this one.

SPOILERS AHEAD

I have to say, I Never had fun reading a VN so far. Not only that, but I did cry on others but not like this one, I have smiled like a dumb boy on this one, but… Yea, this one really feels like home. I love the causality of characters feelings, actually they are go getters and actually enjoyed their conversations. I was doing Rowley Route it was… wonderful, I know maybe people choose Angus for been open but for some reason It felt normal to let it go with Kegar. Likewise, I did not expect that Kegar had feelings for Angus. This project actually deserves to have more.

Update 05/06/2022: For any doubt of why I said Never is because although I have been reading VN’s not all of them make the connection of friendship with the reader. This one had one of the closest warms to my heart. Feeling like They were my actual friends. That connection only happened now after some time around 3 times. At this moment, I have read… 34 VN’s and still counting more. I have yet to review most of them, so I do know how much a VN can add to make a reader feel the emotions in words. But so far only a few make the connection of friendship with the reader.

I honestly though Rowley was the peoples favorite

(+4)

Loved the new update, but as a polar bear lover am hoping there might be a route from the Arthur in future. Love the Polar Bear character.

*SPOILER*













I LOVE the new update! it was so fun reading all of it and it was sooo worth the wait.

although, I Almost lost my shit by this exact scene right here hahahaha

I love how Kegar is so protective of our little cinnamon roll, I kinda thought he was just all happy go lucky, so this surprised me a bit, the music was so relaxing, especially after a long day so I really appreciate it, I felt like I was on cloud nine grinning from ear to ear, and the writing is so good, It reminds me of what happened in the last Kegar update without having to replay through it all, (Although, I did replay just so I could see a certain cg again haha) and the sass this update really lifts the mood.

over-all, I love this new update for the chonky lion, You really outdone yourself tyrving! so many things I didn't expect made this a better experience, Keep up the good work and Ill be waiting fort the new update hehe

but then again, remember to take breaks every now and then, as always, In best regards

-Ace Ayasaki

Edit: 
I forgot to mention about the incorrect names aarthur said which mas me laugh histerically, hahaha

(+1)

Yay, New Kegar update *w*

sooooo hyped for this new one, I'm gonna play it later hahaha, Once again thanks for this Tyrving!! ^^

I love this game's soundtrack

hi!, I'm so exited for the upcoming build, hope you're doing well and remember to  rest well

also, I tried the links so I can download the music, but for some reason they don't work on the android version, so I had to download it via Windows, just sayin

Hello Tyrving, I hope you're doing well and good.

I would like to ask you about if the soundtracks are available to be downloaded. I love this game as much as the soundtracks used. The music is very chill and great. Thank you.

(+2)

Hello. Thank you, I'm okay - doing my best to stay calm about the situation here in the eastern Europe, and to keep my usual work schedlue.

As for your question: all the songs used in the game can be downloaded for free from their respective sites (these are listed in the in-game credits page with the links). Now, while I don't list the specific songs I'm using, in most cases I keep their original file names, so it should be easy to find them. The one exception are the songs from RPG Maker engine - these comes in bundle with the engine and can be only used in RPG Maker games, thus, you won't be able to find them through normal means.

I know that looking for these specific music files might be a hassle, but I'm sure that while doing it you will be able to find even more chill songs (also, these artists surely deserve our clicks and boosted traffic on their sites :))

If there will be a certain song or two that you will have difficulty to find, feel free wrote me a new reply - I'll be happy to help you with the search.

(+2)

So I haven't checked itch for a while and hey! What do you know? Kegar already has a route! Imma just download the game and I'll see how Welkin handles the cute lion. Great game, thanks!(^ω^)

Hey~! Thank you for playing to game! I hope you enjoed the story so far - more Kegar content is on the way.

YEEEEEEESSSHHHH!!!

😍✨

When is Keger getting his update?

(+1)

Hello. The game just got updated, although, it's the last Rowley's update for Day3. Kegar's new update is next, and it's already available for the patrons.

You made them out very well.  But can you add more save game slots?  I love saving games a lot, but it only has 9 slots?

(+1)

Hello. Thank you for your feedback. I'll see what I can do.
