this game was the sweetest treat! your creativity is wonderful thank you so much for this (: i wasn't able to hear any of the music and i think it's because i played on mac??? but regardless it was still a lovely experience x
This game is utterly perfect! It's the perfect late night game and I smiled at the dialogue. I'd love more of it! Its length is just right too. ><
loved the visual style and the soothing twinkly music - charming and warm little game!
Love the writing, the music, and the art :)
I just really loved this. Such a charming game.
such a nice, fun game! thank you so much for this great game :)
this is good stuff
I really loved this game and its world. It's very inspiring. Thank you very much for creating such a wondrous thing.
Thank you so much! 😊 That's such a lovely comment, it really made my night. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
That was a fun little game! ^_^
I'll admit that the controls weren't always wonderful--I often felt at risk of accidentally choosing something that I didn't intend while going through the lines, especially on runs after my first. Perhaps something like arrows to move and advance text, but not to choose options, and space or enter to do that?
I also would have liked a bit more variety across playthroughs--new customers or requests.
With all that said, however, I really enjoyed the experience presented! It was short, sweet (literally in some cases ;P), and had a wonderfully dreamlike atmosphere. (I think that the music helped rather a lot with that last, as did the palette, the sparse use of artwork, and the simple controls.)
Overall, very well done, I think, and a lovely game. ^_^
Thank you so much! :) The feedback is very helpful, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Unfortunately the Bitsy game engine only has arrow key input but Ill find a way of improving that for my next game :)
Had some fun tho :)
This was a wonderful little game! I could easily imagine a full-blown version of this game in the style of an RPG/Simulation. Similar to Stardew Valley.
Let me know if that sounds like something you'd like to try!
Omg thank you so much! :) Hmmm I'm learning Unity right now so it's certainly a possibility ;) Although I'd need to get much better at coding haha
This is so beautiful... and I am so glad that my bitsy hack helped achieve that :)
Thank you so much! :) Love your hack ❤️ Just a heads up, the link to your Twitter in Bitsy HD has an x in it where there shouldn't be one :)
Wow, this is really beautiful !!! But I'm not good at making cake T___T
What is that music playing in background ? =)
Thank you so much! Haha the gameplay isn't really logical, I was in a bit of a silly mood when I made this :P The music is 'A New World' by Purple Planet music. It's the first song in the Dreamy section. I completely forgot to put my music credits in since I uploaded it in such a rush, thanks for the reminder!
It's a fun little game ! I like the concept of the game, the writting, graphics and musics are beautiful and give a charm to the game. The characters are well tought out and very diverse, it's really great !
It's a great game that I recommend ! :)
I like it !
I love everything about this game! Fantastic work.
Wow! As someone who loves cooking, baking, and fantasy, this felt like the perfect game for me. Absolutely loved the writing. Art and music are unbelievable as well, amazing work. One of my favourite Bitsy games ever.
This game is lovely and very cozy. It certainly has a whimsical ambiance to it!! I love the design of the characters, they are adorable!! Very nice work!! :D
What a magnificent work of art! Your game is amazing as always. I love the story and setting so much. Will definitely visit it again when I get hungry at night.
Thank you so much! :) It makes me really happy that you'd come and play it again sometime
This was a really cozy experience! I felt so sorry for the traveler I turned into a frog though. Great job! :)
This game is so cute and atmospheric, I love it! how did you get Bitsy to let you make dialogue choices like that?
This is so cool and so gorgeous! I loved the idea of baking for this many people and the ending was super interesting 💕
Very interesting game! I didn't do quite well the first time I played it but I will try again. When I tried to make a dark cake with light ingredients I couldn't bake my cake, but other than that I didn't find any bugs :D
I don't know if you've heard of Game Development World Championship before (gdwc2019) but it's a competition for indie game developers where they can submit their games and it's free! It's great if you want some more visibility for the game and it only takes a couple of minutes to join :)
Thank you so much! Thank you for letting me know about that bug, I'll be fixing it as soon as I can :) I've never heard of gdwc before, I'll check it out!
if you make [the last guy] dark & dark you can't bake your cake, nothing happens when you hit the oven.
Ooo weird, I'll go in and fix that as soon as I have a chance. Thanks so much for letting me know! :)
full of charm and adorable characters! ADORE the use of the frame, and the music gives the whole experience this calming, wistful feeling
OH YEAH and also I appreciated the puzzle-y elements! those are often really hard to pull off and it feels very natural here :3
Excellent work! great art
This is such a lovely Bitsy. The art, story and music are great. :)
This is so gosh dang delightful! Story is quirky and fun, it's got some nice light puzzley choices, and the music and art's truly lovely. Thanks so much for cooking this up; I really enjoyed it!
(Got a 16/21, and I wouldn't take back any of my mistakes. It's not my fault genius culinary puns go unappreciated in this town! >:U)
