Didn't read through all the posts but



  Sunlight doesn't work like this.  It's like RM fogs: a cheap aesthetic effect that gives the illusion of better mapping.  It might work in a cave or dark area as if there holes in the ceiling producing sunbeams, but that's still pretty incorrect when you consider perspective.  If you insist on keeping it, at least turn down the opacity and blur the image.  As it is it's glaring and distracts (and detracts) from the map.
I recently discovered that I was capable of sending coins to myself, and exploiting this is surprisingly entertaining.

The sun is peering through the clouds. It does this in real life, so you're wrong Troll. Plus that, it's a fantasy game.

Even if they're peering through clouds, sunbeams aren't as defined as that outside, in real life. How often do you clearly see the edges of a ray of light during daytime?

I think the bolded describes the Artistic Lisence.

  That's pretty much the most overused excuse ever and it isn't a logical excuse anyway; unless it's an element of fantasy that's actually given an explanation or at the very least a clear mention, it's only a crude and ineffective way to defend a point.

I don't nit-pick stories/games, so I wouldn't know. ::)

"Nitpicking" for the sake of constructive critiquing is a valued kind of post (as long as the delivery is in good manners). One doesn't have to agree with it, it's just a suggestion brought up for the author to consider. :reivsmile:

Constructive critism doesn't have to be cold and mean.

  My advice and critique has never been a personal attack, so being insulted in return is discouraging, to say the least.  The alternative to direct and informative help would be insincerely sugarcoated and indirect pseudo-help, and if I have to stoop to such levels in order to help people I would stop trying.  Besides, I haven't been going around flaming developers, so if I could stop getting such unnecessary responses I would appreciate it.

Peace, everyone. :seraismile:

KRoP, I appreciate your comment and yes, I see what you mean here. I will try around it and see how I fix this point. Anymore suggestions will be welcome. :reivsmile:

Raxy, I also appreciate what you said but I think KRoP was only trying to point out the wrong things in my game so that I fix it and make it better. That's what constructive criticism is all about. ^^

Anyone, please feel free to post anymore suggestions if you feel like it~ <3

I finished the game!!! And it's so sweet Luv!!  :)
Oh, i see sometimes there's a 'But of course' at first sentences (when the main character and Ella talking),  it sounds little weird to me (or it just me), just change it to 'of course'  :vikonsmile:
And why aren't you credit Nonta? You use his/her music right? (town1)

Oh, and I forgot to mention that Meh kinda makes it awkward in a real-life convo. In chat like here and on IMs it's OK, but in games, try not to use meh. And uh/um can be used in awkward situations, the way you used it in the beginning (I think, I haven't played for a while) makes the actual dialogue sound strange and stuff

'But of course!' is a valid English statement, I think, so I see no problem with it. Is there any reason you think it's weird, D? ^^

And I forgot to credit someone? Sorry, my bad. o-o

'Meh' was used only by the fairies and fantasy creatures only to show cuteness. I don't really think it makes it feel awkward. o-o And 'umm' and 'uhh' can be used anywhere, I think. I use it myself in real life. o-o

Just for the humor, that's all. :seraismile:
