Update Roundup #3
Hey everyone! It's time for another collection of minor updates fused together into one big post! This time we've divided the update into a spoiler-free and spoiler-filled section, as some people mentioned last time that they'd like to remain blind about the game content but would still like to know how the project is going.
We've done some playtesting! We sat down with players and watched them play a development build of the game right from the start. We're very shocked by the results!
In each play session, the players managed to obtain 20 Time Pieces, and we had to stop the play session after 6 hours as it was almost midnight at that point! We had never anticipated that the game was this long. When we asked the players about the game afterwards, they said that even after 6 hours, they felt like they had only scratched the surface of the game and wanted to experience more. It's very flattering to us to know that the game still feels fresh after six hours.
We consider the playtesting we did a major success. The majority of acts were well-liked, and for the few that weren't, we obtained data to know how they could be improved.
The above is not an indication of how long the final game will be. We may cut out some stuff, reduce or increase the length of some segments, etc.. But we wanted to share it to really show how much content we've actually put in the game for such a small studio.
Spoiler-Filled Section (If you want to remain completely blind when playing the final game, you can exit out now!)
Thank you very much for being awesome fans! While we don't have a release date yet, we hope we've shown that we're working hard on making an amazing game!
