beautiful game! I wish there were more levels!

(+2)

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :) I'm working on a longer version of the game (~20 levels). I'm planning to finish it by the end of this year, I'm not sure how it'll be released, but I'll announce it on this page when I know~

(+1)

I love this game so much! I was panicking and it immediately calmed me down. I was jamming to the songs!

Hi, thank you! I'm really glad it helped you out, that's so cool :)

Thank you for making such a wonderful game!

(+1)

I love this game! It has an amazing artstyle that is super cozy, and combines a find the hidden object part with a rhythm game part seamlessly. Great work keeping the difficulty of the rhythm sections easy enough so that it isn't impossible for a noob like me, but not so easy that it's boring. I will be looking forward to the full release! :D

Hey, thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed the game, and I'm glad the difficulty suited you well! Like for me balancing the difficulty is one of the trickiest things, so I'm glad it worked well for you :)

(+1)

It was very relaxing and i enjoyed it :3

Thanks, I'm glad to hear it! :)

(+1)

Very unique

Thank you :)

(+1)

good stuff

Thanks :)

You should publish the song in level three to other platforms (thats mostly because i want to listen to it on stuff like amazon music

(1 edit)

Thanks for the suggestion~ I'm not at the point where I want to publish more of the songs/to different platforms yet. When I finish the full game I'd like to release all the arranged tracks to multiple platforms though.

Hey Im in love with your game <3

Im really inspired by your game and im thinking of creating an rpg where the fight scene will be using the tile interface like yours and instead of sfx it will be lofi music XD

Hey thanks! I'm glad the game inspired you so much~ :)

I'm not sure I understand your rpg idea fully, but if you get around to making it, let me know. I'd be interested in trying it out!

(+1)

Awesome and calming! Will look into your other games!

(+1)

Thank you! :)

(+1)

Wow!

Awesome Rythm game!

Best I've ever played!

Thanks! That's super kind of you :)

(+1)

Its hard but once you get used to it it's so fun!

Hey, thanks so much for the feedback!

I'm glad it you were able to get into it :)

No problem

(+1)

Really awesome game! As someone who has been trying to learn the ropes in making lofi music, this is super cool!

Hey, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. 

Hope it helps on your Lo-Fi Hip Hop journey :)

(+1)

Wow, I really loved this little gem. The beats were amazing, and I can't wait to find out if there will be a followup game.

Hi, thanks so much for making a video for Lo-Fi Room!

I really appreciate you taking the time and effort to do that :). I also have to say you are a powerful rhythm gamer, you got nearly everything first time~

Bedankt!

Oooh I never knew you were Dutch (or at least speak Dutch)! Graag gedaan :)

I also used to be in a little band... and was a master at Donkey Konga. I think that training made me good with rhythm xD

:) Donkey Konga! That seems like a good training ground~

(+1)

Cool game!

(+1)

Thank you! :)

Love the game and the music. If you need more custom music let me know, looking for projects.

Hey, thank you! I should be ok for music but I'll bear that in mind~

(+1)

great game! I loved it and played it again! Thank you.

Hey, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it so much :)

(+1)

really cute game and very fun. i love short, polished games like this. i could play a hundred levels of it! love the hand-drawn graphics and chill music. props for updating and supporting the game well after its release!

(+1)

Hey thanks so much for making a video covering the game! It's super cool you take the time to cover indie games on itch.io. :)

I thought you might be interested but I initially made the first version of the game as a game jam game at the end of 2018 in 2 weeks, and I've been updating it since then whenever I have time. The ultimate goal is to build a ~20 level 'full' version of the game by the end of this year. 

(+1)

that's interesting and cool to hear! can't wait for the full game. good luck with the development!

(+1)

Thanks!

(+1)

Cool idea, and nicely done ;) 

Thank you :)

(+1)

This was really chill and fun!! (took a little while to get used to all the keys being so close but overall had a blast :D )

Hey, thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

(+1)

good game. fun game. good music!

Thank you :)

^^

(+1)

can we get the separate midi tracks and/or sheet music and tabs cause damn i wanna know them

(+1)

Haha thanks, I'm afraid not at the moment, I have other priorities in getting the game finished right now. But it's a cool idea and I'll consider doing something like that at some point!

Thanks and keep it up the game was awesome

(+1)

The Q and W keys don't register sometimes for me.

Hi, thanks for letting me know. I'm not sure what could be causing that problem. Could you let me know what platform you're playing the game on? Also which level + instruments is it happening on for you? And finally what kind of computer are you playing it on (doesn't have to be super detailed, like how old it is, the manufacturer...)? I'll see if that can help me figure out what is happening

(+1)

Hi there,

I heard you would like some feedback on presentation or the game itself. I remember playing this game around a year ago now, looking back at my last comment, and the game has moved on / changed so much since then. I loved the now so 'level 3 music' and still do. 

I will point out that now the game loop sound is crisp and I also think that you have done an excellent job on fixing the loop issue with people hitting the buttons. However I think having the game as what I think 'easy' has quite a nice vibe, with the game intending to be relaxing, and now I think a focus on creating new, unique and especially catchy levels should be made (I mean who doesn't). Experiment with different sound tunes, but make it catch as that is psychologicaly more attracting to the game.

Presentation wise I think you have done a good job, if you really want me to be a super picky critic then I would think about the placement of the next level symbol beneath the complete sign. If you pay close attention it just seems slightly in the wrong place. Maybe its because the button is on top of the complete sign or the button is too big and has a massive shadow compared to the complete sign. However it still has its own vibe, maybe simplifying it to look slightly more similar to the complete. If you wanna push the presentation then maybe have the occasionaly effect like the film in the begining or the gust of wind or something like that.

You could soon try and portray a story of the life of this character, progress it through different scenes, and with no dialogue make a story. Maybe when you have a lot of levels you could have  a level select option menu so people can choose their level and add a level select and a credits section beside the play button.

Nonetheless, there is not much to say to improve other than adding more levels, make it unique and tell a story. 

Great work on the game,

M

Hey, thanks so much for taking the time to give such detailed feedback! 

I agree that the main thing the game needs is new levels, (that's the most fun part of making the game for me). I have the story more or less planned out, and some completed tracks and art for some levels. What I want to figure out beforehand though is making the levels last longer, so I'm going to start working on that first. I have some ideas I want to try out.

The final plan is to build it into a game of around ~20 levels with over 1h of gameplay. But I haven't decided yet how I'm going to release this version. The plan is to finish it by the end of this year though!

Regarding the presentation, I was mainly interested in how people viewed the game before playing it, as I'm not sure how appealing/understandable the game is from the just screenshots videos. But I appreciate your thoughts on the in game presentation :)

Thanks again for your encouragement and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your feedback :)

I cant wait! this is one of the best games here

(+1)

this is one of my favorite games 

Hey, thank you :) I appreciate it~

(+1)

oh my, i didnt think i would enjoy this but this is amazing work! i would love to play more!

Hey, thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)

If you don't mind me asking, why didn't you think you would enjoy the game in the beginning? I'm trying to get the presentation of the game as good as possible, so I'd be interested on getting feedback to help improve that :) If you have any insights, they might help me out~

(+1)

Well hidden object kind games always tend to get me bored pretty quick. When I read what type of game it was, I started with low expectations other than the fact that I love lo-fi songs. 

The presentation of the game is really aesthetic and I love that. I'm a really laid back guy and it is hard to come across casual games like these.

On things that might improve on, I am not too sure! Me personally I think you are on the right track and I would love to see more work from you soon!

Good Luck!

Thank you, glad you liked it! :)

(+1)

What is that new level? I came back :D

(2 edits)

Hey! Thanks for coming back! :)

Yes, since you did the video there are two extra new levels before the original one (although you might have tried the second one before)

time for new build :)

(+1)

I just love this.

The difficulty is just right, the graphics are well done and beautiful to see, the music is also great.

I love the way we "compose " the song, it is so creative!

Oh, also I love the girl; Next stage could um.. Be a coffee shop? 

Anyways great game love it

(1 edit)

Hi thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much :) 

I'll consider the coffee shop idea :) ~

Hey, greetings from Brazil! I really liked your game! As a musician and lover of lo-fi hip-hop, I can say that it really cought me. The game itself is beautiful, and so the soundtrack. I would really love (and I mean REALLY) if the game gets more updates with more levels, improving not only the difficulty, but also the  songs. Anyway, congratulations!

Hey, greetings! Thanks so much :) I'm really glad to hear it. I'm going to be working on the gameplay systems a bit more first, and I'll upload those changes on here for sure. In the long term I'm going to be building it into a full, longer game (I'm aiming for at least 1h of gameplay), but I don't know how I will be releasing that yet. I'll post progress updates on this page though :) I'm hoping to get it all done by the end of 2020...
