Under rating threshold (show) I really like the general concept of the game, and the music/art style adds a certain feeling that I also enjoy. However, some aspects of the actual game-play are a bit frustrating at times. For example, not being able to avoid the red orbs at certain points, you could make it so that William can duck down and dodge, perhaps? After all, there are only so many times a person can go through the same level without getting mildly irritated. Though as a whole, I certainly think it's an enjoyable game. c:

Under rating threshold (show) This is interesting but the controls are driving me nuts. The developer asked "Would you prefer jumping on the up arrow?" Yes please. AND Woo I killed the queen! I'm a murderer now :D AND Question: Is there just the two "William died" and "William is behind the door" endings? Is it possible to get the 'William behind door' ending without talking to the dryad? And the first time I tried talking to the dryad, it wouldn't say anything to me. Do you have to make it sparse before talking to her? Does picking 'Mother' or 'Father' change the storyline at all? Also, after beating the game, you should unlock a "Storyline mode" where you can click the words instead of platforming.

Under rating threshold (show) I hate that you jump lower when clinging to the wall. I love it, but a bit short. 5/5 from me. Maybe more than 2 endings next time?

Under rating threshold (show) The controls aren't touchy as much as it's just difficult to hit the top jump height at times (Especially when pressing yourself onto a wall.)

Under rating threshold (show) Really great game. Interesting story, executed in an interesting way. I would've liked for it to be a little longer, and the controls were somewhat annoying at times, but still a 4/5.

Developer response from Mimicwing

(As mentioned by others) - the controls leave a lot to be desired. If I work on something like this again, you should find the platforming experience much smoother and easier to complete :)

Under rating threshold (show) Is there any reason why jump couldn't be mapped to W, Up AND Spacebar at the same time? Likewise for the other movement controls.

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from Mimicwing

Yes and no. Technically, yes it could. However, I was struggling a lot with getting it to work in Stencyl without causing other errors and people were wanting alternative controls ASAP as I only included one set of controls to start, so I needed to hurry. Any game I work on from this point will include controls like you'd mentioned, or at least the option to change you control scheme in-game - I'd underestimated how important they are to people :)

Under rating threshold (show) the game is easy, the controls are hard -.- the sometimes slow upon contact with walls killed me more often than any errors i made or any true difficulty. the somewhat fixed jump height is really annoying as it makes precise jump almost impossible. again with the sliding on the walls, if the jump is one that you can just barely manage, moving to the side will cause you to fail since you'll slow down and not go as high as you should. 1/5 from me. the story was good, but nothing else.

Developer response from Mimicwing

It's a shame the story wasn't good enough to pull it up from a 1/5, but thank you for taking the time to provide feedback :)

Under rating threshold (show) A cool idea is that William died but as a final act to save you when you wake in the field the are actually Fey and you find a boy who has lost his memory and you can ruin him and make him forget all or bring his memory back and save him and you discover that boy is you at the end when you hear him say I will not stay

Under rating threshold (show) Doesn't really have multiple endings...unless I missed something, were those symbols that show up in the later levels supposed to be collectable?

+ - !

(3)

Developer response from Mimicwing

There are two endings, unless you count giving up and staying in the Fey Realm forever a third ending ;) It's not much though, more a 'good' and 'perfect' ending depending if you explore everything or not. The symbols weren't collectible, but I might work collectibles into the next one. Is that something you'd like to see? :)

Under rating threshold (show) I don't like how if you jump and touch the side of the ledge, you stop and fall back down. I could understand that for a ceiling, but it makes the jumps really frustrating.

Developer response from Mimicwing

The jumping is very clunky - but, we live and learn - look out for super slick movement, collision and jumping in the next one! (Or maybe I'll cut the feature...hmmm... :P)

The jumping and collision can be quite glitchy for people, have you tried using a different configuration for your controls? It might help! :) Otherwise, sorry about that, but thanks for playing :)

At the top of Stencyl you should see a "Publish" button, click that, then choose Export as SWF. Then head over to Kongregates extensive Developer's section and follow the guide on how to upload your game :) http://developers.kongregate.com/docs/resources/faq#how

Under rating threshold (show) Yeah there was, when i die in large hard levels i have to start all over, but i got the hang of it with time. Still would enjoy some checkpoints. Also, i dont remember in which level this was, but i got inside a wall once and couldnt exit lol.

Developer response from Mimicwing

Ah right, well getting stuck in a wall is definitely bad, sorry about that! I hope it's not happening too much. I'll bear checkpoints in mind for the next one; I'll probably do some even larger levels, so sounds like it'll be necessary :) Thanks for the feedback!

Developer response from Mimicwing

Hey, yes it's made it Stencyl - I think it's a great tool. I'm no expert however, I found the Getting Started crash course in the help section of Stencyl really useful myself - so I would definitely suggest doing that if you haven't yet. There's quite a few tutorials & forums out there also; take a look around and complete some of them, they might not be directly related to what you want to do, but they'll help you get to grips with the tools quicker. Good luck! :)

Under rating threshold (show) Beautiful game! Liked the story. The jump/slide on walls thing was a little awkward to get used to, even though it helped out sometimes... other than that, I just wish it were a little longer. Can't wait to see more!

Developer response from Mimicwing

Thank you, as a writer, that means a lot :) The slide-wall-thing was... Unintentional, though I think I shall see about implementing it as an actual (non-clunky/buggy) feature in the next version. It seems like people enjoy this kind of gameplay, so I'm planning a longer version with a new story when I find the time to work on it some more :)
