About where the windmills are, the game crashes.
I don't know why.
Would gladly appreciate if you could fix it somehow.
Oh and thanks for letting me throw bottles in the ocean in the first place. Apparently the police doesn't like it when you do it in real life. They say things like:
"Why is it always YOU and why always on MY lunch break!"
"I can see the uranium inside bottle, what do you think you're doing?"
(Don't throw bottles in the ocean, in case it wasn't obious)
Instead, use them for making cool sculptures or something.
What a game.
DAMN. honestly, i could play this all night.. i LOVE everything about this game. i think the whole surviving on a boat after a flood destroyed the world concept is really cool and it's done really well here. i like the short backstory of the tap in the arctic.. i especially enjoy the message in a bottle writing mechanic where you can read what others have written and cast out into the flood as well as write your own thoughts to maybe be read by another player someday. i saw many different messages, from serious and emotional to funny and memey. i saw depressing notes and happy ones. i thought all of the writing prompts were great although maybe adding a few more wouldn't hurt. it was neat figuring out the games mechanics and building my boat up. great pixel art too. very deep and thought provoking experience for sure.
Would it be possible (without to much time and trouble) to update the mac build to run on an up to date os version? :) I can't get it running on Ventura 13.4.
Very interesting and thought provoking game.
is it multiplayer??
Had an absolutely blast playing this. I understand the player base has dwindled, but if so, the game still did a great job of circulating older messages out to me so that it felt very vibrant and alive. I always felt like I might be just about to bump into another player's boat on the next screen. <3
im the first one in 2023... i think
im too late
im sad now :(
The final midnight has fallen
Good Stuff! Very interesting! I love the art style!!!
Incredible game, wish it had more players.
Wonderful concept, shame there aren't more people playing...
I find the game very good.
Its really good.
I downloaded your game after stumbling on a tweet by the creator of this gem, and I'd like to say that it was a very pleasant and thought-provoking experience that few games have been able to pull off.
does anybody else still plays this?
The game gets really hard once you get the motor and sails, because if you jump off to grab a box or whatever, the boat just speeds off. Can someone tell me how to stop the motor and how to end the game?
im confused, so do other actual players playing the game see my bottles, and i see their bottles?
its interesting how you can't go backwards in the game. like it's all about letting go of these feelings, by writing the notes for those bottles, and then moving forward. seeing everything that everyone else has written feels less lonely. i hold this game very dearly to me.
I love this graphic style!!
I'm pretty glad that I played this game before it went "dead." It seems like I'm receiving less bottles now. Unlike 2 years ago (I think) when I received more bottles. It was such a cool concept of a game - and I loved the messages. Definitely has a place in my heart.
This has to be an ARG! why isn't anyone talking about it! and if they are I can't find it
How's this been goin'?
love the visual style of this game, good job!
It's a sad day when a brother has to hang his magnum dong alone and in silence...
Great looking game, only problem is that I can't play it, since it's not 64-bit and I'm running it on Mac OSX Catalina, which has no support for 32-bit apps. Any chance of that being fixed anytime soon?
Please add a save button or somethin
Update: no clue what i did but i tried to run it today and it opened just fine. excited to play again
Interesting concept, held back by superficial restrictions. It would be better not to suggest a topic to write about, and just let the player write about whatever without making him feel guilty by not doing what the dev wants from them. The water also kills to fast, and there shouldn't be a restrictions on when and where you can write something.
I'm pretty sure you can write wherever and whenever you want, if you mind the cooldown. And the suggested topic is just there if you don't know what to write about, I don't know what exactly you mean with 'making the player feel guilty by not doing what the dev wants from them'? You can just ignore it if you have something better in mind.
well this hit way too fucking hard for me
#75. I really enjoyed this, as lonely as it was. I'm glad I got to play it before midnight.
This game is kinda sad, but it's beautiful, you're never truly alone.
Edit: I finished the game and was kinda surprised, I was kinda underwhelmed, but still pretty shocked.
