Greetings to all of you amazing devs!
So here I sit, after probably 12 hours or so of playtime. The game looks amazing, sounds amazing, and feels amazing! Props to you all, job well done. I cannot wait for launch.
After 12 hours or so of playtime, I do have a few points I’d like to make for consideration, bug / glitch reporting, and suggestions.
The only real bug / glitch I’ve encountered thus far is while traveling on the world map. The screen / characters tend to “jerk” as if the screen cannot keep in sync with the characters moving along the path. This seems to happen about 15-20% of the time I’m on the world map moving from node to node. It lasts but a few seconds, but enough to be annoying visually.
The art and look of this game truly is amazing, with the exception of one thing. Calibretto’s chat box / bubble. I know it was mentioned in another post, and I have to agree. It just does not fit with the rest of the game. Perhaps keeping his chat box like the rest, and using a different font to highlight his different speech tone.
While I am getting this on my PS4, playing this on the PC is making me rethink that option. With that comes my next suggestion - Windowed Fullscreen mode. I play on dual monitors and while switching from the game to another screen does not cause a crash (which is nice) it does cause the game screen to vanish until I come back to it. Playing in non-fullscreen and on my max resolution causes most of the edges of the screen to be cut off.
Loot variation, I seem to only be getting loot drops for Garrison. Now, this could very well be my long standing hate / love relationship with the RNG gods. I hate them and they love to never actually do anything good for me. Then again, it could also mean that loot tables need to be fleshed out a bit.
The only other suggestion I have is for the dungeon map. Perhaps either on the map itself or somewhere else, a map icon key. Something that tells us what each icon means. I figured out the portal, the chest, and the fishing spot. But have yet to figure out what the ! on a tile means. Now if these are the only icons on the map, if someone can tell me what that ! means that would be great. If there are more icons that have yet to be seen, a key would be a great help. It doesn’t even have to be a specific key, just a general idea.
With all of that said, I cannot thank you enough for this amazing game, fantastic work!
