Under rating threshold (show) amazing game. You added some color into our world, even if the graphics were (literally) sketchy.

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

The graphics fit the game, I think :) Tainted Olive has much better and more serious drawings, because it fits the story and world.

Under rating threshold (show) I got the same problem as PCX Firebird. After a mission, I get a gray screen, same thing at the start of the game. If I keep clicking, I go through several of them, then the game comes back. I assume they are supposed to be cutscenes. I guess they're broken for me and firebird.

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

Cutscenes, probably, yes. Try waiting for several seconds without clicking, like Firebird did. They should come back on. I just played through the game again and encountered no problem (using Chrome and Opera 12)

Under rating threshold (show) There is a bad glitch when I play... after I get done with a mission, and before I go back up to the mountain, it gives me a grey screen with the mouse pointer in the top left corner, and the music button in the bottom left corner. Could you fix that please?

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

We haven't had anyone with that bug yet. Can you tell me more details? Which chapter? Does the grey screen happen after you click the mountain, or after you click the map? Anything else?

Yes, I have. But its totally unrelated to TGR. Not until someone (multiple someones) on this site pointed out "Breath" did I notice why people say that. Same name, yes, but unintended.

Under rating threshold (show) I adored this game. I love to play a great game with a great story. The gameplay was simple yet elegant and the overall story flowed well with it. The story itself, as well as the message was so moving it made me cry. And I didn't realize that I was crying until the very end. No game had ever done that for me. If I could I would give this 10/5 stars. Well done.

Under rating threshold (show) I actually cried at the ending, it was very beautiful. The whole game was very convincing an mysterious. I liked it very much :) Please don'tstop makin games, i now have played both your first and second game, and they are equally as good :) I really lked the hints in this game, if you were feelingcompletely lost you could just click on it and you didn't have to Watch a Whole walkthrough video )

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

Thanks! You can actually expect a similar hint system in Tainted Olive Chapter 2; once the story progresses enough to allow for it ;)

Under rating threshold (show) (wow, they allow super long comments)... All in all a nice game, especially as it is your first one. I usually don't rate/comment games at all, but how you respond to all feedbacks at your 2nd game was convincing me the most and made me wonder about your 1st. going to play the other again and leave you a super-long comment there too if you don't mind :D

Under rating threshold (show) Wanted to give it 3/5 for story that didn't fascinate me until the last 5 minutes of the game and the puzzles that are so easy that you don't have to think anything. Gave 4 finally as the end of the story was making the rest up, and the puzzle with baiting the phoenix was hard (tried to colour everything, the stone, the stick, and burn it somehow in the bowl, but wouldn't have the final idea :D ). Still think you should take that for next games: don't make puzzles too easy. way-arrows for example are too easy for example in general. and don't solve everything with the talkings, "I hate raw food" would be enough without me telling that I'll cook him. or why tell me that he likes frogs initially? if there is nothing else to find that one can eat...

Under rating threshold (show) I rated this low a long time ago. I think I judged it based on the art style, and because I was impatient for a faster game. This time I needed a slow, beautiful one; and the art grows on you. Rerated 5 stars. I'm glad I gave it another chance because of your newer game. Thank you for this self-contained beauty. It made me think.

Under rating threshold (show) A very interesting game. A bit confusing when the phoenix told me I was doing something wrong; "no". (I then considered there to be multiple endings, haven't found any). A change in the music once in a while would be nice. I also found it hard to read some of the text on the world map. I suppose I missed out. Thanks for the experience.

+ - !

(2)

Developer response from BlackOliveGames

There should have been an alternative ending - right after you get the phoenix and return to Mother, there was supposed to be a dialogue that returns you to the real world without finishing your journey. But it was cut due to file-size constraints. Ditto for the music - "only" five themes, due to the file size.
