Brilliant! I managed to get to the end (despite a very laggy cable car section) and I would certainly play it again. So yeah, a good one. Would love to see it "finished". :)

This game was intended as our first commercial game, after making the 2014 game jam game we thought it'd be cool to expand on the concept and try to put in all the ideas we had for the game jam. The project ended up being a bit too big for us to actually properly finish, we wanted to do so much more with the concept! Our team just wasn't experienced enough in making vidgams.
So yeah that's why we decided to release the project in its current state, hoping someone would enjoy playing it despite the rough edges!

This game is awesome!
I did a lets-play on this :P (I LOVED IT!)
It's a good idea for a game. however it can include a lot of waiting.
Hi, I really enjoyed your game, but I also noticed some bugs, like falling through the floor of the train, conversations with the child-like creatures tend to trap you in the conversation or freeze the game and other small things with the menu doorway, but overall good concept, I especially liked that you made eccentric beings for the characters, it gives the game, well, character, thank you
Awesome game, you guys could make another game like that, but cutting off the "i have to waste almost 20 minutes to catch a train and i am in the wrong platform" thing :v. But now seriously, awesome game, i kinda know the effort that was taken to make this game, and i think it was worth it. Hope you guys make another cool game like that someday. I give 9/10, just isn't 10/10 because it runs on unity engine that is very laggy for not so good computers. PS. Sorry for my english.
A lot of time for this, very well made!
this game has lots of potential! love the mood, the graphics, the storytelling, i've found lots of glitches and i was stucked many times in various places, but, anyway i want to play more!
This game was so fun to play! I really liked the art style/graphics of the game. I made a Youtube gameplay video on it. Here's the link if you wanna check it out! Thanks :)
Lovely little experience, sad to hear that it's not going to make it to a final release, but I hope that the places and ideas make it into some of your other projects- they deserve it.
Good job team, I look forward to your future projects!
Is there anywhere I can get a bit more info on the creatures of the game? They're really intriguing and I wanted to write a review of the game and was just curious if there were any specific influences to these cute monsters of yours. Also, does each type of creature have a name of its own? Thanks in advance!
Would also love to know how you achieved the main menu, it's a really great effect and would love to do something similar in a game I'm working on :)
Quick question, how the hell did you do that main menu? You can just spawn it in and walk right into this thing, its really cool, how do you even do that in unity?
Beautiful little game, taking notes from Miazaki I take it :) ? I don't think I figure it out, tho, only found the watering pot and explored all 4 areas before I got the black screen crash.
Also, I played it late at night and at first thought it was tied to my real clock thinking "oh neat, so I gotta play it at different times!" Was a little disappointed that wasn't the case. Maybe food for thought?
Do you mind me asking how you did the escape menu? Just render to texture camera on the entrance and teleporting player to actual location? and what about your lighting - just toon shader with a non-gradient black/white ramp texture?
One more tech question if you please - how did you do the movement blocking by ledges? I take it you didn't put invisible walls everywhere? Just a custom controller that moves you on ground unless the slope is greater than some threshold?
Excellent game, heard a lot about it, this is a really unique little experience, hope to see what else you make.
Amazing game and really great art style, but I ran into a bit of a problem. Once I hopped onto the 21:13 train to go to another place, the music faded in as usual once I got there but the screen was black. I couldn't do anything so I closed the game. Gonna try it again to see if it isn't just me
Hi there! I played this game and just explored and had a really good time, but I now want to restart and i can´t find how to do that
You are not alone. I can't restart the game no matter how many times i uninstall and install it. HELP PLEASE!
Hi! I'm a YouTuber who just played this game for a video to be going up tomorrow, but I wanted to take the time NOW to say I loved this game a lot! I hope you and your team come back to this soon...a fuller version would be fun!
EDIT: Video's up!
