I am in love with this game! I love these style games and it's so much fun trying to solve mysteries. There are a few rough spots and glitches. A few typos here and there, 1 time I saved the game,  tried to leave Yvon's office and it just looped me back to his office and got stuck in a corner and couldn't leave. This happened in a few different spots where I'd get stuck somewhere, but luckily for one instance the phone was right there so I just used it to get unstuck. Other than those few little rough spots you've got a great game coming along here and I can't wait until the full game is out. I've played the game for my YouYube channel and I did it in 3 parts, but here is part 1 I've got uploaded. Keep up the great work!

i've been wanting to play this since i saw it on twitter but i don't have windows. will there ever be a mac version for it?

i love it so far!! im really excited to finish the rest. keep it up!

i did however find when i went to go back to a save point, the game glitched and i was off the map.

Yes, this is an issue that was pointed out to me last week. It should be fixed in build Pre-Alpha 4.1
Also, glad you enjoyed it!

Very interesting story! I really liked the art style and the music felt very fitting to the game, keep up the good work :D

How long have you been working on this game? :)

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 :)

Thanks! I'll look into it.

Loved this! Played through your latest build (and made a video, hope that's okay!), and am really looking forward to the full release!

I did try to give some comprehensive feedback/critique (with examples) towards the end of my video on it (starting around the 1:19:37 mark). Overall, save for a few very minor issues with typos and bugs, this is a really fun game with a lot of promise! :^) 

Your playthrough was very informative! I really appreciate the time you took to not only explore the game, but return on elements you felt should be pointed out. It's always nice when a lets-player does that for any indie project still in development. After a while of working on a project, we indies often lose our objective perspective & aren't sure how someone new to the game will understand things. Your video was very fun to watch! Cheers!

This game is amazing, I really love the style and the puzzle features. But after I save the game sometimes goes blank except for the character. This game is great so far though, and I cant wait for the finished product! 

Thank you so much for your encouragement! This is the first time I hear about such an issue, reporting it was very appreciated. I'll look into it during Alpha or Beta.

This game is a blast, and I really love the interrogation methods.  It feels nostalgic, and yet unique and new.  My only drawback is that I keep getting stuck between the walls and because I can't save my files, I keep having to restart the game.  But other than that, I love the game enough to keep restarting to try and get back to where I was because the story is so compelling and fun.  Keep up the good work!

I have a new version coming along that fixes these issues. I'm really glad you enjoyed your experience!

I thought this game was amazing. I was really just amazed at what they did with the engine considering that it's rpgmaker. I was just blown away.

The story was alright, kinda what I've seen done before from what I'm already seeing. Music was good. Gameplay was pretty good.

Personally, I liked how the game was easy. There were parts where I was stuck but once I figured out what to do it got easier. The whole unlimited tries was great.

The only cons I would say is that there was a black bar that appeared when you go back outside. And, I got stuck in a wall when leaving a room. Luckily the phone was right under me so I teleported to floor 1.

Hey Wallace, thanks for the feedback! I'm working hard to fix up some of the issues you mentionned. Glad you enjoyed your playthrough!

Hello again, coming back to this comment because it stuck with me. 

As someone who wants to be talented at (amongst other things) storywriting, it's actually really encouraging to hear that the story was "meh", but that you still enjoyed your overall experience. It tells me the project itself is good & that my efforts aren't wasted, even if there is still a lot to fix.

Weird out of place statement, I know, but felt it needed mentionning. 

Thanks again!

Np! I didn't think the story was "meh." I thought it was good. I just felt like I knew where it was going and that's ok. I would still like to play the final game. :-]

I really liked the game but I had some issues: When I try to question Ivan he switches into Lloyd and I don't get his actual testimony. The game stops when I talk to Julia the pink robot.  Nothing happens when I present facts to characters with 0% like Margaret. Detective gets stuck from time to time

(+1)

Oups, my bad. I forgot to lockout the rest of the game. (Anything after Yvon should be considered unfinished content.) These aren't bugs as much as they are unfinished game elements. I'll be posting a new version fixing these soon. Thank you for playing!~ I hope you enjoyed it.

I did! I really liked the game :)

Floor 3 upper hall, if you leave the old door (nasha room), Beatris disappears

Thanks for the report, I'll look into it.

my world this looks so beautiful, and that's not just because teal is my favorite color

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed "Lockheart Teal" :P

Thanks!

Im in love with your game!

However minor bug, sometimes when I enter a room, il get stuck in a pervious hallway's wall, able to move direction but not walk anywhere.


Another minor bug I've came across; when I changed the sound, then went to press x , and error screen came up, 

Glad you enjoyed it! The hallway bug has already been fixed in the next version. I'll look into the volume bug, this is the first time I hear of this.  Thank you for the bug reports!

First things first, OMG! I just found this game and I played through it and I LOVE IT! I really loved all the new mechanics added to the base RPGMaker. All the puzzles and traits are really clean and I never found myself stuck on any one problem. The rooms were all unique enough that I never felt lost, either. The only problems I had was the warping through rooms. I found myself stuck on the other side of the phone on the first floor and a couple blocks too up from another room. All the characters I felt too felt vibrant and colorful, not just because of the great use of color, and that ending! It kept me on the edge of my seat for the whole trip! I can't wait to follow the development of this game! (Also the art is amazing! I need to emphasize what a great moment [insert spoilers here] was!)

First off, I want to thank you for your enthusiasm. I take it to heart. I'll jot down the issues with the phone & try to patch them soon. I'm curious to know which spoiler you're talking about. Do you mean the later scene with Yvon? Thanks again for playing!

I got a minor bug. In the Doc's Ward in the room just above the morgue area theres a spot of blood. Investigating it just gives me the message "The Chair was Cleaned"

Thanks for reporting the bug! We're on it.

I remember trying this out a while back, I've been meaning to come back to it.

Just played through 2.1 and I absolutely loved it, great job! Can't wait to see more!

Thank you for your kind words! I'm doing my best to get the game at Alpha & Beta state quickly. For feedback, do you mind telling me what you enjoy (or don't) about the game? Thank again!

Hi! Just chanced upon your page again and saw that I must have forgotten to respond to you! Sorry about that!

Obviously it's been a while since I played now, so I can't recall any specific criticisms. I remember I encountered a bad teleport at some point which softlocked the game, but upon re-loading it didn't happen. Can't remember where abouts that happened though, sorry.

I pretty much liked everything about the game though! Enjoyed the writing, art style is great, music is fantastic. I found all the characters interesting and mostly I was just disappointed when I reached the end of the demo!

How is this project coming along anyway? And what are you plans for it in the future? 

I'm glad to hear! I'm tweaking the mechanics of the game at the moment. Once that's done, I'll be writing and revising the plot for the rest of 2018. We'll see after that. Cheers!

Hi!

I had a question.
What software did you build with this game?

Believe it or not, RPG Maker MV is our engine! ✨
