I played ur game, now, my man, 2nd rule of dream jam is def limiting your potential for a great game, ignore that rule because clearly everyone in the dream jam does or at least most of them. I give it FOR NOW 5/10 because there are a few visual bugs, still the potential it has it can def easily reach an 8-9/10. For real just develop all you want.

Glad to see you enjoyed playing the game! Dream jam isn't really limiting me, thank you for the notice, generally we're moving the scope a little bit towards puzzle rpg currently, yet with all the same aesthetics and worlds nonetheless, just taking time to implement all the stuff^^

whats in the update?

In the 0.38 version from new features there's now functional in-game menu with audio and sound volume options and fullscreen toggle, preview menu for future effects, you can equip them and see sprites for each while facing south, changed tracks for the wheat field, night balcony, day balcony, crossroads and night barn areas, WASD keys work for movement too now. 

Thanks! Thats a lot of great improvements. Im happy fullscreen toggle finally got added

the music is so relaxing

I like the art and the mood, though,

I think something is brocke in the latest build. I can't talk to alien looking at sunset. I walked in circles every were and can't find way to progress.

It's actually just not implemented, don't worry! I'm still working on subsequent updates, hope you will be able to enjoy it to the fullest soon

This looks really promising! Looking forward to a more content filled demo!

the art is too good.  Hope there's an update this upcoming jam

The game is very pretty for a demo! The sprites are all well-done, and the colors are pleasing to the eye! I really love the hub area, as well as the rainy/plant area of the game! Can't wait to see it finished!

Hi and thanks for this game.
For whoever can't start it on Linux, try run game executable (./moonday-linux/Moonday) in the installation dir. via terminal and check all debug messages.
In my case it tells me libSDL_mixer-1.2.so.0 library is missing so I need to install a proprer package (on Ubuntu 18.04 and its derivates it would be libsdl-mixer1.2 package) and now game starts correctly.

Thanks.

Thank you for pointing this out! Yes, SDL libraries are required to run game on Linux, I'm glad you managed to figure this out XD

A lot of antivirus scanners are identifying the embed icon as a trojan, you may want to try downloading a version without icon.
