I wasn't a big fan of the grind, but not a bad story

Amazing concept, amazing art, amazing story, amazing characters...
I was confused by the visual novel and clicker game mix at first; however it worked really well. I loved everything about the game, and the ending(s) was satisfying even though the characters were interesting enough for me to want to know what might happen next. I love how well written all of the dialogue is. [idk if the names are spoilers] Y. is awkward, but none of his behavior is so strange that it doesn't make sense(I could kind of say the same for C. and E., but they are all awkward in very different ways). I fell in love with everyone. I usually dislike characters like R., but for some reason I feel like he was different, because I loved him (maybe he wasn't too obnoxious or extremely ridiculous with his behavior?). I could go on about each character, but I've already written quite a lot. I just want to say that the part with awkwardly cute hand holding was my favorite.
One thing I didn't understand- You are prompted to continue harvesting each type of berry after you get all that you need. I don't understand this from a gameplay perspective, but the way it is presented in the story makes sense, so I'm not really upset about it.
Also, I love how you turned a very cliche story on its head and were able to do so in such an original way.
re: berries, originally there was a final request list from the witch which required all the kinds of berries and would explain more about the witch and her motives, but that was scrapped for scope reasons and just the berry harvest prompts were left in the game since i felt story-wise the hero wouldn't want to just stop afterwards (:
thank you for playing! (i'm glad you liked r. and the awkward hand holding haha)
Hello. So I downloaded this game and I enjoyed it! The art style is cute and simple! I didn't like that there was a lot of talking haha! Nice job npckc!
Norton claims that it detected a virus in game files but it's prabobly just a false positive.
this is a known issue for the engine (ren'py) and norton. it's a false positive, so no worries.
(norton is really not a great antivirus software because of ineffectivity like above & resource hogging, among other things.)
This was hella cute...
Getting 100 scorchberries was M U R D E R, but so worth it since I was able to see all the endings without replaying the whole game (I'm having that bug where I can't save Ren'Py games), That was so cute! I'd love to see continued adventures of these characters!
thank you for playing & i'm glad you enjoyed it!
is there something that can be done game-wise regarding that bug? if there is a save issue, i'd love to try my best to fix it.
As far as I can tell, it affects almost every Ren'Py game I download through the Itch app. Something about the permissions not being set properly because of translocation on Macs.
I'm not usally a fan of clickers or visual novels. But, I found myself really enjoying this. Interesting premise, lovable characters (especially Era), and well-written dialouge really made this game a great experience. 10/10.
