Re: Cursed Lands alpha demo 0.6.1

Things I'd like to see in the character creator (just quality of life improvements):

- Freckles / scars
- Makeup / blush / lipstick

All race options are unlocked in the portrait creator, regardless of what race you to chose to play. Not that I don't like freedom, but pointy-eared dwarves and bearded human women are maybe a little bit immersion breaking. (It's actually worse than that I see, I'm being referred to as "elf" because I picked an elf portrait, but my character screen identifies me as a human.)

Text is initially set to auto-forward. This is obnoxious. I hate it. Also, you have to fill the auto-forward speed bar to slow it down, this is rather counter intuitive.

First line of the game has a typo:
"I breath in," should be "breathe".

Changing game difficulty then rolling back undoes the change. Shouldn't changes in the options screen be saved when making them?

"Thank gods your still alive."
Since this is dialogue, I'm hesitant to cry typo, but "Thank the gods you're still alive." would be what I'd expect. In any case your / you're is definitely something that should be fixed.

"As I glance to my left and ride,"
I'm assuming this is supposed to be "left and right"

Unequipping the armor/helm I start with, then opening the armor inventory (before the first fight) causes an error.

Code: Select all

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

Isn't the time delay on Reason kind of excessive? We already have a pretty bad negative if we fail, but we also have to wait forever before we can try again.

Trying to flee (using Reason) from the first battle tells me that the Zombie will never surrender peacefully! I wasn't trying to get them to surrender, I was trying to run away.

"But for you sake" typo, should be "your"

I only used 3 people for the first fight, when the boss fight started I put the fourth guy in, but the battle started with only 3 people.

"And yet they many stand in place, doing nothing." Probably delete "they" from that sentence in order for it to make sense.

"The fog was thick - to thick for me" should be "too thick"

I don't care much for my own character in the intro - commanding soldiers more efficiently than their own trained commander, smugly identifying and dealing with a vampire. I'm already getting horrible Mary Sue vibes. I hope my character isn't a perfect idealized entity that can do anything, knows everything, saves the world without breaking a sweat, and is home in time for dinner.

Anyway, that's all I had time for. Most fun so far? Fiddling with the character creator! (Sorry the feedback is all jumbled together like that, I took notes as I was playing so no formatting.)

Thanks for the feedback, regarding some points:

This is a bug, I wanted the player to be able to change the race again from that screen, without the need to go back. But maybe isn't a good idea? Anyway the issue is that the change of race in the screen it's not stored in the game, so that's why you had those problems! :mrgreen:

Another bug :)

I didn't change that part from previous games, so I guess it happened there too. Honestly I don't think I can change it, I do everything as it should be in Ren'Py, but somehow using rollback it changes it back. I'll see what I can do :)

Yes, I was using that delay because that talent was quite powerful (being able to skip a battle). But that was before other changes, like you get no loot from fleeing a battle/having a draw. That's already a penalty big enough. The text needs to be changed maybe, however Reason skill says: "negotiate a temporary cease-fire, allowing player to either flee, or get a pre-emptive strike."
So in practice you tried to talk with the skeletons bu they don't want a cease fire. I'll change maybe surrender to cease-fire then!

No in later scenes, are the other characters who "teach" the player (in some cases depends which choice you pick).

Well, you can talk them into a pre-emptive strike, so apparently they're not immune to being talked to. :P

- fixed crash when unequipping the default items (related to the new feature of marking new acquired items with a small white (i) icon)

- change party minimum size to 4 for first encounters to avoid the bug of adding a fourth only for the vampire battle (I think it happens becase they're not real party characters buy NPCs). This way you need to use all 4 :mrgreen:
You should know by now that I like to do unexpected things when beta/alpha testing, just to see if I can break the game. :wink:

I played the demo and Enok is so sweet just like I imagined, he's still dangerous like Sylrissa but still cuter and more innocent, even if she is "without sin", definetely the first romance I want to try :give_rose:

Glad you liked him. I think the two nagas are going to be the most popular romances of this game :mrgreen:
