Hi, thanks for playing and your feedback. Sorry you had a hard time with the game. I am planning on fixing/ updating the game to reduce these problems, however I have been busy with other things the past few months so have not been able to do so.
Hi if you're interested, I made some time this week to make some improvements to the game. It should be a lot easier for you to hit the first notes if you want to give it another go. :)
Lofi is briliant, here is some constructive feedback, can you work on fixing the loop transition as it pasues and then loops again.
Hi, thanks for playing and your feedback :) is the problem you mention on the web, windows or android version? Also is it when the full song plays or also for just one completed loop? I'm not currently able to work on the game, but when I have time to look at it again I'll take a look at that problem. Thanks~
Some of the Instruments could use a little slowing, But other than that, Great game!
Hey, thanks for playing the game and giving feedback :)
When I have time again, I'm planning to make some quality of life adjustments to the game that hopefully should improve that issue.
This is actually so cool! It has a very cool concept!
this is awesome, great way to procrastinate! It might be nice to have a little lead up before the first notes cause it can be a little frustrating to try to hit the first ones
Hi thanks for the feedback :) I agree about the first notes being hard and frustrating to hit. I'm planning on implementing something to improve that as soon as I have some time.
its too good... i want to hear that music all along again in my study and reading time
Hey thanks so much for doing a playthrough video! I really appreciate it :)
I'm glad you enjoyed it, You got through quick!
where i can find those song? Those are relaxing
So the inspiration behind the game was youtube playlists/channels like the video below.
I haven't released the music from the game yet, but I'm planning on uploading it to soundcloud at some point in the future. I can let you know once that happens.
Good game idea,interesting!
Really cute game, it's great, art work is fantastic and it's a novel idea.
Great game but could you extend the time before the bar hits the first notes so it will be easier to hit the first notes, it passes to fast when it starts over and it doesn't register the click.
Can't do. The bar moves in sync with the whole music, it can't pause. Try not to look at the bar, but listen to the music or the clicks and press keys in the rythm of the music.
Hi thanks for the feedback :) I'm glad you enjoyed the game. I agree about the difficulty of hitting the first note, however as the other commentor said adding space to the start of the track might not be optimal. Instead I am planning to have the notes move down the screen rather than the bar move up (similar to guitar hero or other rhythm games), that way you should always be able to see the upcoming notes, rather than having this big jump back to the start of the section.
this is actually so adorable and i love it oh so much!! so chill and laid back - please please make more! maybe ones with different genres or songs too? :D
Thanks so much :) I'm glad you enjoyed it, unfortunately I'm pretty busy nowadays, but when I have time I am planning on adding more sections to the game~
Okay, one change I must suggest is to see if, minding the existing progression of the music, to provide empty space at the start of the rhythm boards, rather than needing to instantly hit a key as soon as the bar loops around. I think this would let the players see the bar and thus create a kind of visual guide for when to start, what tempo to follow, and thus make the process that much less stressful and frustrating. As it is, it feels like the best I can do is kind of spam the first key[s] in a sequence and hope I nail it, particularly for the faster boards.
See my other reply. Also, have you ever played a rhythm game?
Hi thank you for the feedback and suggestion :) I agree that hitting the first note is tricky and can be frustrating, especially as you have to wait the whole bar to try again if you miss it. I'm planning on changing the game, so instead of the bar moving, the notes would fall down the screen instead (like in most rhythm games, guitar hero etc...) so players should have more time to anticipate the first note. Hopefully that should address that problem.
I was thinking that might be a more elegant solution, after I had posted that earlier comment! It sounds like a fine idea, at least in theory. I hope it can be implemented easily and to your satisfaction! Thank you for the response and consideration. c:
I tried to sum up how I feel but I'll leave behind what a comment said on my video:
"There's something strangely admirable about being able turn a couple of jpegs and some sound files into something more diverting and somehow more complete."
Thank you for LoFi Room. I'm glad it exists.
Hi, thanks so much for your feedback and making a playthrough video! :) I really appreciate it.
I was wondering, the green squares around the instruments, is that an artifact of the screen capture or did it look like that on your device?
literally the cutest game i've ever played
ABSOLUTELY ADORED THIS GAME! Such a relaxing atmosphere, Subtle, eye-catching artwork, and music that blends the entire game together so well. I loved the final tune so much, I created my own arrangement using my in-game choices, and recorded some original lyrics. SUPER catchy music! Had a ton of fun playing the notes and would love to see more of this type of game in the future! Maybe add a note difficulty option for those who want more or less of a challenge to complete it. Thanks for making such a cool game!
Here's just my vocal arrangement I call "Desolate Home" (lyrics in description):
Hi, thank you so much for playing the game and making a video! It's sooo cool you did a vocal arrangement of track! :) I enjoyed the use of the sound effects in there. Did you extract the individual tracks from the game files, or did you build the different sections in the game itself? Thanks for the kind feedback too, I'm currently on the busy side but I'm hoping to expand/ refine the game soon.
I took what I could from my finished gameplay vid and created loops. No effects were used on the instrumental, 'cause I loved it the way it was. Thanks for listening, it was so fun to sing over it! I'll definitely be on the lookout for future updates!
This was a really cool game! It took a while, but it was well worth it.
Hey! I loved playing your game! It really was Lo-fi and chill, unlike my video because I'm terrible at these games, but I hope you enjoy watching it if you get a chance :) (btw this was before the update haha)
Hey! Thanks so much for making a video of the game! (I like the thumbnail you made btw) It's always really helpful to see people play. Sorry the game was stressful, the idea was to create a relaxed atmosphere, but I think the difficulty is still too high for that. I'm still working on ways to improve that :).
I feel like a few of the beats were a little off, maybe not as tight as they could have been. Otherwise this is a really cute little, quick game with an interesting concept. Nice little time killer. :3
