I loved this game so much! I'm crying (good tears), it was beautiful! While I may not be able to give you any money for it, I thought I'd write you a little poem to show my appreciation! (I'm sorry if I got Yokey's name or Leslie's drink wrong. :S)

Yokey :
lovely little guardian
You left your friends alone
They know it wasn't your intention
Yet they still wish you'd come on home
In spirit they'll toast
Red bean coffee and apple cider
Three cup full
One empty
For a journey fulfilled
In front of shrine unsealed.

thank you for such a nice poem and i'm glad you enjoyed!

This game was lovely, a very comfy hour spent! Your art style is gorgeous and I can't wait to see more, I feel inspired to make things of my own.

A couple questions if you don't mind: Is there a full drawing of the adventurous girl? She reminds me of that knight lady you drew a while back. Also, is the game's music available online?

that's wonderful to hear! i don't have a drawing of her but i did imagine her to be the same species as the heart knight. maybe they're relatives! and ill be sure to upload the entire guitar track when i get home (i assume that's what you mean by the game's music haha)

a very cute species, I have a black lab so when I saw that character I instinctively wanted to flop her big black dog ears around

and yeah the guitar track is nice and relaxing, I'm finding myself playing the game again just so I can stand around and listen to the guy play it some more

sorry for being late, here it is! :

Far too cute!! i enjoyed this little romp immensely and honestly I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to chill out for just a little while. very soothing; very therapeutic... just want the game to be longer (or perhaps even a second installment?)

Great job Bynine! You've made my day, I hope I can make yours too, and happy new year!

SUCH A GOOD GAME

Hello! I very much want to play this game, but trying to run it just gives me an error that says "a Java exception has occurred". Google has been unhelpful in fixing this. Do you have any idea what might be causing this?

(1 edit)

Hello Blightbug! I'm very sorry to hear that's happened! When was the last time you updated Java? You may be running an old version, which would certainly cause this problem. If your version is up to date let me know and we can try and resolve this further.

Edit: Also, you'll want to restart your computer after updating your Java, just to be sure.
