An absolute delight all the way through! I'm normally not too invested in a game carried so strongly by pure vibes, but I genuinely enjoyed my time with the characters and the aesthetic.

(1 edit)

as much as i wanted to love this game, i couldnt even remotely enjoy it. the controls are ABYSMAL, and some cannot be remapped (i tried mapping camera rotation to arrow keys, but wasnt able to, nor could i unmap movement from the arrow keys). aside from that, the game just feels sluggish to play, interacting with objects feels terrible, even progressing text feels bad.

visually gorgeous game, and i really wanted to get to some of the parts shown off in the preview gifs, but it is such an innately unfun game to play that i couldnt progress very far at all. i could not recommend this to ANYONE

Hi Sunspotty thanks for the comment and sorry that the game didn't vibe with you. I'm a bit concerned on the remapping controls issue though since we put a lot of work into that. We are going to release an update to the game to allow for remapping within Arcade games in the future but if none of the remapping worked for you that is a concern. If you haven't tried the other supported control inputs like mouse or controller that may be a viable option for you.


going to post another comment about this, the game has some issues mechanically, quite a lot of bugs that can also include accidental sequence breaking and a softlock, so those could definitely use some work

that said though, I loved absolutely everything else, the characters are great, I enjoyed the story, the games within the game are pretty easy (aside from the rhythm one) but they are still fun enough to play, the art is adorable, and the music is top notch, definitely recommend it

Really enjoying the game so far, but I think I've been softlocked. I'm on the part of the "Chilling with Lavender" quest where you have to go to the park, but when I go there I can't progress. When I went there, the first person I talked to was the kid for the "ORTHOPLEX" quest (earlier than I was supposed to, I had just interrogated the fruit stand lady but hadn't gone back to Cilantro to tell them about it, no idea how much of the quest I accidentally skipped). Now when I go back to the park wearing the costume, Lavender isn't there anymore, and the three NPCs that are there, Ginger, SuperGerzinganZ, and Thyme, don't seem to progress the quest, so I can't go any further in the game. I also can't seem to find Lavender anywhere, they aren't in the apartment either.

Update: I got it to trigger. Not sure what exactly caused it, but when I challenged and beat SuperGerzinganZ at Gobabots, then zoomed out and back in again, Lavender reappeared and said the same lines from right before I talked to the kid; when I went and talked to SuperGerzinganZ again the quest continued as normal. Seems like everything's okay now, I don't know what went wrong before.

wanted to leave a review but since apparently those don’t show up publicly, i’m just copypasting it here:

was surprised to see this in the bundle! the gameplay is very narrative-based, a lot of it is walking from point A to B and talking to characters. so it might not really be for everyone, but if wholesome casual games with lots of furries are your thing you should 100% check it out. ​the game really draws you in with how lighthearted its presentation is, which made it all the more emotional for me when the storyline started getting serious. i’d recommend it for the presentation and the story alone, though there’s way more things to do and explore in the game itself besides that. there’s a few bugs, but they don’t really get in the way of exploring everything the game has to offer. 5/5


i’ll also list a bug i came across, which is that the quest where Fennel has to play for the Tuff Fluffs can be skipped. while this quest was active, i went exploring and visited Chive’s house which started the decorations quest. playing through that quest had me end up in the arcade, where i did get the option to complete the Tuff Fluffs quest, but i walked out of the top floor so i could complete the decorations quest first. this resulted in me completing the quest and the main storyline, without ever having completed the Tuff Fluffs quest, and it seems like there’s no way to complete it after the game is finished, so it just sits uncompleted in my quest log. i’ll probably replay the game and complete the quest normally, but it would be nice to see this fixed. :)

I love the diversity in the characters and that the story tackles many topics we rarely see in video games while still keeping it's focus.
The visuals are very cute and the artists did a great job making the most of the style with very expressive animations and framing.

Play time was around 8 hours for me for anyone who cares.

The game has a few bugs, but I fortunately encountered only a single "significant" one (could not complete one of the side quests).

The gameplay itself is a bit "sloggy" at times. Some quests let you do pointless trips from A to B to A to B to A to B without much meaning behind hit.
I can see the merit for the designers and artists to know exactly where the player is at a certain time but the choice to move the character to a specific interaction point for every interaction made the controls feel quite unresponsive.
The Inventory system is rough. It's often not clear what an item does or how to use it. With all kinds of items mixed (cosmetics, consumables, quest items, mini-game modifiers) it's also very messy. Fortunately most interactions with the inventory are optional.

One major problem I had was with the rhythm mini-game.
The objects themselves don't show an input direction and that made it unreasonably hard for me to process what I had to press. I couldn't win a single round of it :(

Overall I think this game is a little yet rough indie gem that I can highly recommend to anyone looking for a quality narrative driven game.

+1 on the rhythm minigame. playing it with a keyboard made it a bit easier, but i was more focused on looking at the UI to tell which keys i needed to press rather than actually playing the game properly.

really great game, but it can be quite buggy at time

right now for example my save is essentially softlocked because the only thing showing up on my screen after loading in is black

Hi thank you for playing I’m glad you’re enjoying it and sorry about the bugs.


If you email us at support@subliminalgaming.com we can fix your save file.

thanks!

Really cute game so far but i had to restart because if you exit to arcade during the first battle it permanantly stops the tutorial.

Hey thanks for letting us know. I'll add that to our bug board to be fixed in a future update.

Thank you! another thing i noticed is that after the first tuff squad battle it will say you won even if you lost. i dont know if thats on purpose or not.

Not on purpose for sure. We do give the option to skip battles but you have to quit out of the match to do that. If it's hitting 0 time and it says you won then that's a bug. A nice cute bug that tells you that you won but one that will go up on the board anyways.

This is like a game i'd play in my dreams! Neat.

Hi. Are you planing to publish the game on the web too?

We would have to look into it and how it might work, especially with our saving and loading system. You can play our demo online here though. https://www.trail.gg/games/ButtonCity

Nice! If you are interested in publishing it to our platform, www.play-games.com, please let me know.
