I really enjoyed playing this game! The concept of food town was really cute and characters living there were fun too! Their designs were cool - not too weird and cartoonish, but still eccentric. They just seemed fitting, since food people are essentially, uhh, very dedicated cosplayers?
Playing two routes was very fun - first allowed us to kinda see things from Milks perspective because (almost) all characters were genuinely kind and nice. I liked little unnerving moments like Sissy’s name changing, Candy being super obsessive about sweets, the way villagers talked about Chili...
The second route was very straightforward. The beginning was enjoyable - seeing different sides of Butter and Bread actually kinda shocked me, since they seemed relatively sane in the first route. Also, my boy Dumpling... Ahh, I felt my heart breaking when he hit me with that sign! But after that game kinda... lost a lot of the shock value? Tomato’s and Candy’s “shticks” were quite easy to predict and imho we didn’t really learn many new things about them. I enjoyed the CGs tho, they had a good balance of creepiness and cuteness.
Sooo... Fruits surgery was funded by Milk, right? I totally felt like the game was suggesting that, haha. Also, about Milk... God I hate this guy. Like, he’s a pretty awful scientist? I’m pretty sure that your research is worth less then Sissy’s LIFE! His high and mighty attitude was really irritating, haha. I can see why Sissy went crazy after talking with him, listening to ~enlightened centrists~ does that to people :p Also his explanation felt like an exposition dump? I’m not sure whether it was really necessary. I liked learning new details about characters lifes!
After that I felt like minigames got a bit too much focus? The kitchen one was really cool, since it showed us Sissy’s frustration and daily life! But after that we got two more minigames and minimal interactions with villagers, which felt kinda... repetitive? I liked talking to characters, so that was a bit of a letdown - i was really hoping for some villain monologue from Chili!
Overall, I really liked this game - art and music were good, minigames made the whole thing feel more immersive and the basic concept was interesting! Writing was good, too! Only moment that felt a bit awkward was Milks explanation near the end of the game. As I said, it just seemed like exposition dump :p Aside from that I loved the story! We got ambiguous ending, relatable protagonist and slow descent into two extremes - escaping and ruthless pragmatism...
honestly, playing this game was like getting something I didn’t even know I wanted :p Really hoping ur gonna create more games!
Thank you so much! ^^ I'm really glad you enjoyed it!
Yeah, plastic surgery was funded by Milk, but I saw some comments about him and some +18 stuff because of what Grape said, but nopee, it was just Strawberry and Grape idea to make him do what they wanted. And about his monologue, yeh maybe it was a little bit of exposition, but he was explaining Sissy all those things she didn't know, so i couldnt think of the other way to do it XD. And yeaah, his reaserch was important for him, he really did everything to become one of them, and there was said that Sissy isnt the only one who got lost there, so he was affraid that he will loose his position after helping those people, and he wanted to stay out of everything bad that was happening there.
In second path Sissy doesnt talk a lot with characters, because obviously she is scared of them, and after learning why are they like this, she despised them so much, she also didnt want to.
Aaand yeah, im planning some other games! ^^ it will take some time, but i hope i can do something even better than this game!
What are you thoughts on ManlyBadassHero small review at the end of his last video
Hmm, so generally I wanted this game to have more than one meaning~ It was really fun to read some theories in comments, some people were partially right, as was as ManlyBadassHero! I really wanted to make this story deeper than just some cute characters changing into psychos, so I'm glad that I managed to do it! Especially part where Sissy is strugling with stress, trying to make her dreams come true, and stuff like this. I'm glad that people noticed that this story is actually sad, and feelings of characters are something that you can feel in a real world!
About the story, I don't want to say too much, because I want to explain everything about Rose in one of my planned games, aaand Kyrie and the rest have even more background, because I made this universe so big and complexed XD. Dream of Gluttony is just a short story about lost girl, there won't be a second part, her story is over. There will be only and explanation what was it, and why did it loop, and who is Rose. The rest, well, you can think about it yourself ^^!
Also I'm super happy that he played it, because thanks to this so many people got into my story! It's like dreams coming true, really QUQ! I couldn't be more happy~~
Sooo hope you enjoyed the game ^^!
Hello! I just wanted to say that I watched a play through of your game and it was WONDERFUL. I can't see, so I can't play these types of games (I only made an account here to follow you and make this comment), but love watching them. The story was gorgeous and the characters are pretty amazing. I love creepy cute type things. ♡
Omg thank you so much QuQ! Im really happy you liked the story! And aaa, account only to follow me? >U< awww that's so sweet, thanks!
Saw this awesome game from ManlyBadassHero and I really like this game uwu The bgm and he atmosphere of this game are fantastic! I like how it went from pink and cute to creepy real fast lol (the passion fruit route was also a bit creepy even though it is all pink and cute lol) I really want to make some fanarts cuz the character designs are really cool:'D
Awww thank you! There is also the other path, i hope he will make a letsplay of it too, since its like half of the game XD! And im hanging around there, stalking comments XDD
Awww i will be super happy to see some fanarts QUQ thanks <3
Honestly,this game is good.Like very good.The atmosphere,the themes,the characters,the minigames and the story.They are great.I basically found out about you and this game through ManlyBadassHero and I was interested.I was also suprised when I found out that you did all the drawings.Now I could give some criticism but you've heard it I think a thousand times( -_- )XD but if it were something to bug me would be the misleading second route.Don't get me wrong,like I said the game is great but when you get into the second round it repeats the first minutes and they are a good chunk which kinda makes you think that you finished the game and it repeats on purpose like Undertale .Aside from that and the minigames's small issues I support this game and what you are doing. 8.5/10 keep it up,you are doing good and I'm looking forward to see your next projects.
P.S:I made this account just to leave this comment and follow the progress (and support you :)) so...besides DeviantART and this do you have a Twitter?Instagram?Youtube?...facebook??
Awww im so happy to hear such a nice comment about my game QuQ! I also saw his video and omg i couldnt believe it, im super happy that more people will learn about this game because of it, aaa >u<!
Yeah, i think i should at least change the description of the game to make it less confusing XD maybe it will help!
Awww really you made it for this? omg <3 Yeah, beside dA im also using Tumblr (just for RPG connected topics) and instagram (i have there everything lol XD but now i dont use it a lot so yeaaah XD). I was thinking about making a twitter for art and games connected, but im not sure yet :o generally i have the same nickname almost everywhere ^^
Well ok then.I will check those out as soon as I can.You can make a twitter if you want.Sure,you have an Instagram,Tumblr and anything else but (don't quote me on this if i'm wrong >_<)Twitter is a plece where you can easily say your thoughts and future plannings on the spot.Besides the "shadowbanning" controversy,you can use hashtags to kinda make a bigger fanbase and there are people who check out pages dedicated to video game distribution with potential.It's up to you,I will still support you.
Also,yea I made an account because I rarely use this website.It's not bad or anything,I just don't.Maybe in the future...
Aw, okay, thanks! I'll make it soon then *_*! I mean, i will start to use my super old account lol XD I was curious one day and did it to check out the site lol~
Aww okay, its a nice website, really useful for creators *_*!
I've seen ManlyBadassHero play this! ^-^ And from watching it, this game seems really promising! The only issue I have is the font for the text, it's hard to read most of the time.
Yeah, ive also seen that! Im super excited to hear his opinion and everything *o*! I hope you will enjoy it too!
And yeaaah, it wasnt the best choice :/ but it was so cutesy that i just picked it without thinking haha ^^" next time i have to think more about it, thank you!
Thank you! And this is much more of a nitpick from a fire alpaca user, but on the title screen the text used in "Dream of Gluttony" is anti aliased while everything else is not (pixel art style). It looks weird to me. (Look those up if you don't know what it means!)
yessss i know, but tbh it looked weirder for me when i made that font more in pixel style, so i decided to let it be xD as you see, im kinda nad with fonts, but ill mąkę sure to do better in the next game, so thank you for the advice! *-*
Cute, pink to something creepy, gory and macabre... and also did I already mention pink?
This game is so awesome! Tho the horror part is a lil' bit slow paced, it didn't harm its charm, instead it built the atmosphere. Unlike other horror rpg games where the horror begins as soon as you start playing the game, this one started so cute and wholesome where you can play harmless and unsuspecting mini-games and see Sissy be friendly to the other townspeople and vice versa. Since you are aware that this game is already a psychological horror game, you're guard is always up if ever something horrible will happen in between the mini games and Sissy's journey to the 'train station'.
*SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS*
"Welcome to Adulthood"
Spoken like a true poet~!
...Not until you reach the part where Sissy actually embrace the name "Passion Fruit" and begin to like staying in town. The end of the 1st act was an actual WTF moment for me. I thought that Sissy was the cannibal one that the her journey through the town was some sort of an illusion, and that she's going to eat Chili but it was Chili who ate her. It is also noteworthy how quick the transition is from something cute and harmless to something that can mess up your mind; "There's no fucking around"
I actually first thought that Dumpling might have been the one who is sane enough and is willingly to lead Sissy out of town and in at the 2nd act, I kind of presumed that Dumpling would have helped her but he was ready to chase and kill her with a wooden sign when Sissy made her escape from Butter and Bread's basement (Tho there are some other complain about the Dumpling chase scene, I really enjoyed that because it challenged my reflexes).
The reason why I immediately fell in love to this game is because of how Sissy slowly sink into her own insanity, both in the 1st and 2nd act. This also made me question myself and my thoughts about escapism. What Milk said to Sissy about it and Sissy's own thoughts really hit me.
As much as I fell in love to this game, I do have some minor criticisms. Like the worm chase scene. It was kind of useless to use the pesticide since you are too busy turning through corners. Also, it kind of annoyed me when I managed to make the worms to be stuck to the tombstone from constantly turning only for them to respawn right next to my ass (and that your turns need to be precise). There's also that cooking part. The dialogue should just pop-up when Sissy ain't moving or you could've added some dialogue where Sissy scolds herself (the player rather) when she does the wrong thing that is against her own instructions. To be honest, that part confused me like I was constantly pressing the spacebar just looking for the flour. That is all for this portion
I do have some questions like; why they took different types of food as their new personas? Who exactly is Chili? Who is that girl at the end? Why was Sissy in that forest? WHAT DOES KYRIE KNOWS?! Also... WHAT THE HECK IS WITH THAT ENDING?! A cliffhanger is okay, but two?! C'mon, you're killing me. Now I'm more confused than ever but that ain't a bad thing. (I'm sensing some kind of lore here!)
Before I end this LENGTHY review with spoilers, I just want to say that the music is so great, especially the bgm when you fight Chili. It's mf kick ass!
*END OF SPOILERS-END OF SPOILERS*
Overall, the graphics and art are well made, especially the CG illustrations which I really love. I already recommended this game to one of my friends. Sorry for a super duper lengthy review!Hoping for more amazing and great games from you in the future!
PS: Is it bad that ship Milk and Sissy... and so is Dumpling and Sissy?
another PS: Since I've already finished this game, it's time for me to make tons and tons of fanart~
Omgggg, im so happy to read this kind of long review of my game >u<! Like really, i was smiling so much that someone took time to write it for me, aaaa <3
Im super happy you enjoyed the game! Also im really glad that you thought about things that Milk said and generally what happened to Sissy, I wanted to show how important it was ^^! And yeah, i know that i put there a lot of questions, anddd im going to answer some of them in my future games ^^! Ive done a pretty big universe, so i can make more and more games XD hope you will be interested in them as well ^^! <3
Also yeah lol, my friend also ships Sissy and Milk XD aaaaand i would be super happy to see fanarts of it QUQ!
Yeah, thanks for telling me! Can you describe what exactly were you doing when it appeared? Choosing some option, or just starting the last minigame?
Ah okay, i got it, thanks! I will make a new version soon, so just copy your saves there and it should work!
Hey there! I thought I'd do a little review on this game! So to begin, I absolutely loved the art, music, and the overall style it was portrayed in. The art to me was unique and the sprites were interesting to look at. (especially in the second act!) The music was very nice and pretty, but also built tension in this. It might have been just me, but the music in the first act had a sense of dread, which helped me recognize that this little town is, well, odd. This game's overall look made me think twice, because I thought it was gonna be a normal RPG maker game, but it was a nice change of pace, having a simple side-scroller! There were only a few critiques, like a few typos here and there, and the walking speed, and some of the minigames threw you right in, leaving you with trial-and-error. (not that was a bad thing, but I got lost a few times with the second act's set of games)
*spoiler territory, beware!!*
Now, one thing that kinda a little rough for me was the chase scenes, both Dumpling's and the worms'. Despite getting through both, it took a really long time figuring out what to do for both. I especially struggled with Dumpling because of how you needed to stop, then jump, then run, as I kept falling to my death. The minigames of the second act were more difficult-ish, but I got through them much quicker than the chase scenes. The only thing I'll finish critiquing is the chef mini-game. The constant waiter dialogue was nothing more than an annoyance. (that's pretty much it) Now that that's out of the way, I loved the trial-and-error stuff. I had to figure it out for myself, and the sense of relief was nice after completing. I also really enjoyed the game's concepts and story, as the game required both acts to understand more of what's going on. I thought the 'tea battle' scene between Milk and Sissy was cute, and I loved the characters, and exploring Sissy's character and her hardships. I also enjoyed how quickly the second act dropped the cutesy act for something more macabre. Also it was interesting (and creepy) seeing how Sissy was getting around the town in the second act.
*out of spoiler territory*
All and all, this was a very unique game with a couple of quirks, and I really enjoyed the experience. I'm really impressed by the quality and aura the game has and would definitely recommend this to a friend!
Awww thank you so much! I'm super happy to receive such a long and nice review! What's more, im really glad that you liked the game! Thankfuly i managed to show everything that i wanted through the atmosphere and characters ^^! I think I will update the gamę soon, especially description of mini games :o and maybe add difficulty level for second part, because some people werent able to pass some games. Also, the thing with waiter being annoying it was actually my plan xD i wanted to show player how Sissy felt, that even if she was trying so hard, no one around would appreciate her :o!
Hi! Im super happy you liked it! ^^ Of course you can upload the gameplay, ill be happy to see it! Also, the game has only 1 ending, but there are two paths (after you finish first path, it automaticaly takes you to the second one, so you dont have to worry about it! It might look like you play from the beggining one more time, but later its different!)
Send me a link to the video if you make a walkthrough! ^^
I really liked the story but some of the mini games were a little hard to understand.For example the one where Sissy cooks in the kitchen.
Oh, I see! Thank you for the feedback ^^ Maybe I should improve the instruction before mini game to make it less confusing?
*Potential spoilers ahead, be warned*
Your chase scenes are way too finnicky. I barely managed Dumpling's and cannot get past the worms. It's a shame because your concept is really interesting and the art is phenomenal but if you can't forgive a single missclick of a key (or the keyboard/game not responding appropriately) without getting a game over, it makes it nigh impossible to advance.
Either slowing down the enemies or at least shortening how long you have to run from them would help.
Also an overworld sprint function of some kind would be nice, especially when you're going through the same areas again (like leaving a character's house).
Other than that it's a very cool game! I love the contrast between the first and second playthroughs and the subtle but very obvious hints that something isn't right in the town.
Thank you for your opinion! Im really glad you like the game ^^! In the next version ill be sure to make worms game a little bit less difficult, because you arent the only one who struggles with it, soooo yeah XD Thank you for playing <3
