I'm repeating myself but the ambience really is very nice! :D As expected, it's all better with sounds and animation. I am especially fond of the lighting and the rain :)
Even though you apparently have problems with marketing I'm sure a game as well-made as this one should do well enough.
Thank you, Bobipicolina! Looks like I'm pretty bad at promoting a game, especially if it doesn't have cute girls in it, however I did make some improvements based on the recent feedback I received. New fontsize, new portrait outlines. I hope the game gets easier to read and follow what's going on this way. : )

This one really took a lot of time. It's the prologue of Fabel's storyline.

Wow, it's obvious it took a lot of time, it's so well-made!! :shock: Many people fail to make good tragic moments; your team, on the other hand, nailed it.
If you're still considering adding details, I'd say making Fabel look more anxious (by making him shiver, something like that) would be a nice touch.

That's a great advice, thank you! I can't promise I can do it, but I will try my best. : ) Thank you for your encouragement, I was very anxious sharing this scene outside of our crew! : D

I think the sprite-work and animation looks great! It's just a little off-putting how when the father gets struck down, the mother just stands there looking the other way, waiting to get killed too, even though the deathblow made some noise and was close to her. It makes their deaths feel a bit bland? Maybe have her respond in some way :)?

Thank you!! I still think about making the change you described, though it's possible that I will try to make it much faster - as if she has virtually no time to react.

Just a quickie, we have some Summer-related issues with newer updates but we'll be back in full strength next week. ; )

From a scene currently worked on... We actually have time issues with adding the very needed sound effects. : )

Greetings! In Tales From Windy Meadow we have only one dream sequence, but I think it looks pretty well! We're sharing it for ScreenshotSaturday and hoping to see your feedback!

Feeling anxious? Maybe stressed? It's #ScreenshotSaturday, let's chill together with our small lofi hiphop mix. Graphics are from our game, Tales From Windy Meadow, and the music belongs to Mittensさん. A perfect companion for a cup of tea and a rainy evening.

I am so happy to see how much we pushed the game forward during the last two months. I'm especially proud of Iudicia's prologue. It was very interesting for me to try to adapt a character with Asperger's syndrome to a fantasy setting, in which nobody knows what this condition is or how could they call it.

I hope that all this effort is visible in the scene itself. <3



Please remember that the game itself has three protagonists with their own struggles, dreams and doubts. Come and get to know them on our updated website.
So, what do you think? : )

I put to test some my Ren'Py experience and I created the new chapter selection screen. ^^

Well, after ten months I just updated the first post in this thread. If you have any questions or ideas how can I improve it further, shoot! : )
