That was a very compelling environment to explore! I wish I understood the ending or the function of the machine but the mystery of it is still cool.

I love the art style! But have a few nitpicks about it.
- Most surfaces have textures but the grass is just a solid colour and I think it stands out a lot
- The shadows are blurry which definitely does not conform to the game's art style. This can be fixed with a custom screenspace shadow shader that rounds shadows darkness to either 0 or 1
- Specular highlights give a feeling of smoothness, which not all surfaces should have. For example, the specular highlight (and solid colour) in the 2nd screenshot makes the grass look almost like plastic. This can be fixed by adding a texture and removing the highlight. In the 3rd screenshot, the floor seems to be made of bricks or planks, but because of the highlight, it makes it obvious that it's just a flat texture. A normal or bump map would work well here
Otherwise very well done, the clouds are gorgeous too. I realize the game was made for a jam, but I'm sure many people would appreciate a post-jam version of the game
hi, thank you for taking the time to write such detailed, actionable feedback. i agree with you on all points, especially the shadows. i am considering this project complete (mostly for my own sanity as the code is a haphazard nightmare), but my heart is happy to hear there is interest in further development. a future project will see these improvements, promise. 💖
still working on my walking simulator set in the same universe as yours. Hope you don’t mind the art style being identical to yours
this is looking so spectacular, well done. 🌸
thanks! I will be sure to drop a link when it is complete. It may be some time though as I have a baby girl on the way soon.
lovely visual style!! i wish there was an animated player model that i could see move in the shadow. so lovely. i have dreams of staying on floating islands like these.
i love the skybox, and the rapidly shifting lighting styles / colours. so cool and lovely. :o)
hello friend, i am glad the island was to your dreams' liking. 🌌
I really enjoyed the experience !
I love this game so much!! Beautiful aesthetic and ambience.
I absolutely love this game! <3
I had a lot of fun exploring everything down to the smallest detail. And frankly, I wish I could continue the experience. So please make sure you develop even more this beautiful and wonderful game that you are offering here.
What an awesome game. I really liked how well everything worked!!!
Very atmospheric! Well done. You got my ratings! =)
A surprisingly nice short little game there's a good bit of mystery about how the device works or it's purpose, but I loved how the time of day changed and reflected how out of whack everything was getting. The game works perfectly fine was a bit confused how to interact at first but once you get to the gem collecting stage it works well. My Full play through here:
