I'm getting this error:

Any clue if something's missing?

You might still need to install DirectX, which is a graphics driver. You can download the necessary driver for free with this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=35

Thanks! I just did, but the error persists—but I'm running it with wine (took a bit of a gamble here). I installed d3dx9, d3dx10, d3dx11 with winetricks, and added them as libraries with winecfg, and I'm using wine 5.22. So that might be a bit outside of the realm of the help you can offer, but if someone has got one of your games running on wine, I'd gladly take their configuration.

dude(s). your game looks friggen beautiful king(s).  it's projects like these that makes me want to learn how to code lol, keep up the good work <3

It says there's an error so im not able to play :(

Did you check the download instructions - should be able to fix your issue!

(1 edit)

Where are the instructions?  I have the same problem on a Mac.  Won't let me open it after download.  I don't see an instructions file with it.  Thanks

“pocket watch” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.

Does it work if you right-click, then select  "Open" instead of double-clicking

Edit: the instructions are on the download page!

Actually it did give me the option to then 'open' after the error message again.  Thank you!

I love this game (bought on Steam)! I have recommended it to a friend, but they can only play Linux games. Are there any plans to release a Linux version?

(1 edit) (+1)

the steam version runs on ubuntu without problems. if they (your friend) don't have have a steam account, it should probably run with wine

Thanks! No, no Linux is planned, but most of our games are compatible with Proton on Linux. No guarantees, though!

Thanks!

Quirky and enjoyable RPG! Very well polished and enjoyed every second of it. 

This game looks gorgeous. I'd love to know how you did the art, is it like pixel filtering or something?

Looks really cool, and I love your pricing.

This is the most adorable thing ever

Yea looks like what happens when you scale up pixel art in aseprite with the RotSprite method (tried to remake em using it)
