Livestream report!

We did a livestream and it was it a lot fun. We had to start a bit late because of time constraints but we had around 40 people at one point who stopped by. Thank you so much!

You can watch our livestream on our twitch channel.
It’s ridiculously long, but we’re not expecting anyone to watch it all the way through. In the live stream we answered some questions in the chat and Malik and ran around in the game world demoing what we had so far including the new lighting system which made the buildings look much better. It was a lot more engaging than just shooting a short pre-rendered video so in the future we’re going to be doing this in real time.

I hope you can join us next time if you missed this livestream because it was fun chatting with everyone :D

Anyways, once again reminding everyone about our Kickstarter so we may be able to continue our development.

NEW TRAILER!



So we’ve been working really hard to improve the graphics as best as we could in the short span of time we have. I also put a disclaimer at the beginning saying that these are pre-alpha graphics, because it seems like many people turned away from our project assuming what we had was the final look of the game…

The new trailer is on our Kickstarter page and I’ve also been updating the page with 'shinier' graphics. Regardless where we are in the Kickstarter we are still working really hard on the game and Kickstarter. 

TIME’S TICKING on the Kickstarter if you still can donate we would appreciate it so we can make this game happen. So every little bit helps.

And a special thanks to everyone who has backed us thus far :D

Bachelorettes re-drawn colored.

MORE QUESTIONS ANSWERED

On the same note of disabled characters, will it be possible to create player characters with disabilities?

Not currently planned at the moment. For now no.

Hey, I was just wondering with the character creator, Will we be limited to normal hair colours like brown and blonde or will we be able to have outrageous colours too like blue and purple? I seen NPCs with unusual hair colours and i wondered if we could do the same =)

Yes definitely 

is there a reason your blind character wears a bandage? personally it seems a bit stereotypical for a blind person to have a bandage over their eyes?
It’s a stereotype in anime yes, but for her it’s functional. She’s somewhat of a seer and

what’s the story behind hyun jae oh’s arms?  

Going to have to play the game to find out :D

will there be options for people who identify in the asexual spectrum? and in terms of romantic orientation would the aromantic spectrum also be available for choosing?

There aren’t aromantic specific options it would be up to how you decide to roleplay. You can do the best friend arc with an NPC, or do the dating option. There really isn’t much phsyical affection planned for the game, it’s mostly implied.



Guess what guys! Friday night we’ll be doing a live stream on twitch.
Here is our profile.
On the livestream we shall be:

- Chat with us
- Ask us questions
- Watch us run around in the game world
- We’ll be live demoing some things we have so far
- We’ll be revealing and playing some new music not the Kickstarter yet.

Check back on our profile page on Friday. OR we will be posting links of our stream when we start so keep a look out.

Day and Night Cycle Lighting Implemented!

So we’ve been working on making the world a bit more presentable and so we’ve been working with the lighting. This is not even the final lighting colors and hues need to be tweaked in the atmosphere and sky. The stars in the sky even rotate in the sky. We’re going to make a new video showing this better soon.

WE ARE STILL WORKING AND IMPROVING THE GAME IT’S IN PRE-ALPHA STAGES.

Things we have worked on since the KS launch

- Edited the face a bit in the model. (model will completely re-done later)
- Re-did the model’s textures
- Fixed the running and walking so it’s smoother and removed some bugs.
- Character can now run towards the camera.
- Drew some new portrait pictures of the characters (You can see them in the KS)

And those were done this past week. 

This is my fault for not stressing, but some people have assumed the graphics first shown were going to be the final look of the game and have gotten turned off by it. They are not, we’re happily receiving input and working trying to improve the look of the game even now. With funding we’re going to re-work the models we’re going to replace pretty much all the textures in the world. 

Malik has made a developer blog here as well documenting what he’s been working on and bug fixes so far. 

We’re also planning on doing a live stream this weekend we will announce when tomorrow. You can hang out with us, ask questions while we work.

Thanks for your support and following us. If you haven’t and if you can please donate to our Kickstarter ^_^

If anyone has tried to contact me via Tumblr in the last couple of days, I apologize. My notifications have been completely overwhelmed by the Pumpkin Online post, which now has over 12,000 notes. I never expected it to explode quite that much! Anyway, if you need me, let me know.

Oops Sorry! ^_^ ‘

Thanks again for your awesome support!

Updated character portrait. That’s a little bit better.

MORE QUESTIONS!


I got a bunch of questions at once so I’m going to address a couple at a time in a single post so as to not to have too many posts. 

Hello! I’m REALLY excited for when this game comes out, I honestly can’t wait! XD I was wondering because I couldn’t see this in the FAQ, but you guys said that it will kind of also be like Animal Crossing so I was thinking; Will we be able to create animal people just like Animal Crossing or have them as NPCs or is it just the town experience that makes similar?

When we compare it to Animal Crossing we’re being inspired by the house customization and interior design aspect of the game play. Not necessary animals. There will be animal accessories but we do not have current plans for actual animal features.
Hello, this game seems super cool, but I’m curious about the economy. Will it be completely player controlled or will there be some regulations to keep the game fair for newer players? I know some player controlled economy MMOs have had the problem of people hoarding items and then selling them for so much it was very difficult for new players to play.
Good question. The main way the economy will be controlled is the fact (most) items have an expiration date or can be broken down. So items will constantly be created and destroyed so it’ll be more difficult to inflate the market. If it comes to it we will manually instill measures to balance out the market if it gets out of control.

hi! two things, i was wondering what aspect of gameplay would be able to be exploited by including polyamorous marriage? i’m not arguing, obviously you’d know better than me, but seeing your answer just made me curious. do spouses actually help you somehow? and secondly, do you guys think you’d ever produce more merch? that ask you got about kickstarter rewards made me think it would be really fun to have a plushie version of your mascot or something like that :)
Yes you do get benefits gameplay wise by marrying an NPC. As for merch as cool as that would be we’re trying to focus as much of the budget into the game. Plushies are also tricky to order and ship.

Since we’re able to date NPC’s does that mean once a player dates that NPC that they’re unavailable to other players? Or can multiple players date & marry NPC’s at once?
Multiple players can date the same NPC. It will just be set-up in such a way that looks like you’re the only one dating that character.

with diasbled characters as this is a farming game surely it is possible for someone to have suffered a childhood accident and have limited use of a limb or appendage, or use a prosthetic. also some people are simply born without a hand or a foot or the like, or have a non-working limb. there’s also the possibility of neurodivergent characters!
Like we mentioned in a previous post we want to portray someone with disabilities correctly as well as not make their situation too ‘heavy’ for the game mood.  We have ideas and we will work on them :). 


Ok that’s it for now more tomorrow!
