(+2)

(+2)

Makes my heart blossom ahh, this game is incredible

(+2)

This was just a demo, but still... this was incredible. This is just a really charming game, and I love it. I can't wait until it's completed

(+2)

do you intend to put the option Portuguese us up one day?

Maybe once the game is finished! I'll need to find translators for sure 

(+3)

JUST- GOOD JOB!! EVEN IF THE GAME ISNT COMPLETE YET

(+3)

This game is fucking amazing! even though only the demo is out, im trying to work on a fandom page lol. this game has 100% become a hyperfixation and i am legit obsessed w it. im working on the page of the info ive personally gathered, but it might be completely off. BUT, it is sooo far from being done. So if you want, check it out  :) <3 https://acottagestory.fandom.com/wiki/A_Cottage_Story_Wiki

omg this is insane!! I checked out the page and it's so detailed, you didn't miss a thing! Thank you for taking the time to create a wiki page, and it makes me happy that you enjoyed the game so much!

(+1)

this was honestly a really cute and fun game, it doesn't take itself too seriously and i felt as someone who suffers from multiple chronic illnesses myself i related to the elf person a lot more than i thought i would. the character designs and personalities are unique, and the main character, the one you play as has a very interesting personality, making it easy for the player to project themself onto the character, making it more personal. i cant wait to play the full game :)
10/10 for character designs, beautiful background art, expressionate dialogue and relatable characters.

Sorry for the late reply, but thank you for the kind words! it makes me really happy that you were able to relate to nim! Thanks for playing :^)

I think the demo thus far does a good job of establishing the game and its atmosphere a: The art is lush and appropriately storybook-like, and I'm particularly fond of the literal storybook title-screen, which ties in nicely with the occasional narration. It has a thoroughly fantasy/fairytale feeling, to the point where it's something of a shock when I remember it apparently takes place in modern times! The character art is vivid and clean and the writing is evocative without dipping into purple prose; the dialogue in particular does an excellent job illustrating the characters' personalities, which has me interested in seeing more of them in. The audio fits the scenes well and is generally warm and soothing, complementing the game's overall feel, and I appreciate the fact that there's going to be platonic routes as well as romantic ones! Everything looks excellent so far, and I look forward to playing the completed game!

(+1)

Thank you for leaving such a thoughtful and kind review! I'm glad you liked the demo so far and I hope the full game delivers ♡

(+1)

loved the game so much i became a patron :) can't wait for the full thing and am happy to help

Thanks so much! I appreciate your support and sent you a little message on patreon as well <3 

(+3)

(+2)

i love the game so much, i finally found a game like this finalyyy >w< i cant wait for the full game, sorry for bad english btw hehe qwq

(+5)

I so hyped for the full game and I had some spare time earlier today sooooo I edited one of the sprites of best boi

Love it

(+4)

If I went back in time and told my younger self that I fell for a fictional goblin I think they would be extremely confused.  Great game by the way. :-)

(+3)

I only played the demo version, but I really can't wait for the full one. I liked how you could also choose they/them as your pronoun (since not a lot of games have that option)

Overall I really loved playing this game! :D

(+2)

This is such a lovely, cozy, quaint (is that the word?) game to play. The pacing is perfect and the atmosphere it creates is so on-point and true to the cottagecore aesthetic. Lady Meowsith, I am so impressed!

If any of you wanna see the game before playing it, I'm currently making a playthrough-slash-walkthrough of it, first two episodes are out so you can watch if you want!

(+1)

Thanks so much for playing! I'm glad it captured the cottage core vibes :^)

(+1)

My pleasure!

(+2)

I just played through the demo and it was absolutely lovely!! The art is beautiful and atmospheric, and I enjoy how the characters are written - it's a charming and diverse bunch! Something I noticed is that the narration occasionally switches between past and present tense, but not to the point where it pulled me out of the experience. Keep up the great work, I'm really looking forward to seeing this game finished! <3

(For the record, Rufus can have my heart and soul hgfjkhgd)

(+1)

Thank you so much, and I'm glad you enjoyed the game! The full script will definitely be getting a few more editing passes so hopefully the typos will be weeded out ^^

(+1)

Absolutely LOVE this game! Its everything I've been looking for for Cozy cottagecore vibes! But I did get a bunch of lagging/ freezing issues. It could have just been my computer, but it may need to be looked into! I used the Windows/PC version.

💚🐝🌱☀️🍀💚

I'm glad you liked the game and thanks for bringing those issues to my attention!

(+2)

omg, this game is wonderful!!!

Hey there!
So I've been trying to download the game through the itch app but it does not seem to work, any idea why?

I haven't had the same problem with any other :/

I had the same problem as well. I just ended up downloading the game from here and it worked.

(+4)

This game is so sweet, wholesome and not to forget funny! The characters are so unique and hilarous (I'd be lying if I didn''t say how Rufus caught my heart the minute he showed up).
Also a bit of a theory; I feel like the MC used their shapesifting ability to copy their godmother (sorry forget her name) since the similarities have been pointed out multiple times.. idk what's planned but I want to use this as a I KNEW IT card lmao (or a I DIDNT KNOW IT card if I am being stupid ofc)

(+2)

This is cute so far! Looking forward to the full release.

(+1)

Very lovely game so far. Beautiful backgrounds, funny/cute characters, and great writing. I can see a lot of love has gone into it. I can't wait for the full game release. ❤️

(+2)

If some already ask if they can translate 
I could do it in german and serbian

(+2)

I can translate your game into Spanish, if you wish.

(+3)

Love it! Can't wait for the full game!

(+4)

I'd love to play this... however I'm having a problem with installing it. I'm running on a Macbook and whenever I'm about to download it brings me to a screen with... this. Can someone help?

(+2)

Hello, sorry for the late response! If you are using the itch.io app, try downloading the game directly from the website instead. Let me know if the error persists!

(+2)

This was amazing! I can't wait for when the whole game comes out! The art style, the music, the characters! Gosh. I fell in love with everything. :)

(+2)

aaaaaaa this is so good!! i am literally in love with all of them and the writing is hilarious. the art is simply beautiful and my eyes are blessed, I'll definitely download the full game!!

(+3)

Absolutely Lovely! I cannot wait for the full game! I was pretty upset before playing and this was the perfect picker upper!!! I would die for Klafka

(+2)

This is absolutely amazing, both the art and the storyline! I will be waiting for the release of the full game. Remember to take care of yourself and don't overwork! Have a nice day/night!

(+2)

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL :') I can't wait for the full game!

(Pssst! If you are interested in translating this game in spanish, just for expanding your audience, you can dm me, I would be grateful to help!)

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! :^)

Hm... I can't seem to be able to download it.. There are like no files to download. I am using the app on a windows 10 supported computer 

Hey, thanks for letting me know! Was there a download button at all or was this the screen that appeared after you tried to download the game?

(1 edit) (+1)

There was a download button. The screenshot appeared after I clicked the download button. I'll try to attach some more pictures

Hi, if you're still experiencing this problem, can you let me know what kind of a computer you're using and some details of what problem you're encountering?

(+1)

If they have the same problem I have, it's that there isn't any way to download it - I don't see a download button anywhere.

(+1)
