You need to do something with the blue skin dye, I don't want my character blue. Someone out it on me.

Also for devil horns, why not make them a wearable item, not an item that dissappears.
Thanks.

Also would be sweet if you could make a marketplace and we can sell our items for gems. Also have bidding for items. Would really change how the game is.

I only saw fairy wings in the game, can you make angel wings?

Also take some items off the game after a month so they become rare and certain people have them, but if they have the seeds for that item, they can keep making more.

Last for the backpack expansion, can you leave it at 500 gems to upgrade? That is rediculos that the price increases so much for the backpack. It's at 2400 right now for me to upgrade.

The modifier items are fine as-is. There's a difference between them and clothing items - they can be spliced with things. And using them has a chance of providing seeds. Having the item used on you has a chance of giving you a seed, even. And they wear off in time. Blue wears off in an hour, devil horns in 30 mins, etc.

Clothing items cannot be spliced. The seeds aren't even supposed to be obtainable.

There are currently only fairy wings.

And taking items out to make them rare or whatever sounds like it would mainly generate frustration. The game is about fun x.x And they add new items frequently. This means the new items are rare for a bit until they become more well known.

And although the backpack upgrades do get quite high, they aren't a huge deal, and I'm someone that's bought all of them. Items don't despawn so you can use a location in a secure world for storage purposes. And since clothing seeds don't splice with anything and shouldn't be available, there's no reason to keep them on your person at all times. Which cuts down heavily on inventory usage. Keeping only one set of clothes on you, etc.

Chests/storage is suggested often which I support. And dropping the backpack expansion pricing a bit wouldn't hurt, but it's not terrible given all of that.

You're probably aware, but the blue die only lasts 2 hours. (Can do /status to see any active effects and the time left) Maybe we should reduce that time? (Devil horns are less, like 30 mins I think)

The system is setup so that high level rarity things cannot be farmed, ie, you will always run out of seeds eventually.

Backpack size - will think about capping this, I agree it's over-priced at the later upgrades. More backpack space may disincentivize building on the other hand. Will talk to Hamumu about it.

Angel wings? Hmm, it's secret, but check in again around Valentine's Day...

I feel that most of us run out of bag space and need upgrades due to seed storage. Or people with my mindset do, anyway. I would grow things for building purposes when I need those specific things, and otherwise convert them to seeds for splicing.

My bag almost solely contains seeds haha. So I don't think it would reduce the rate of building. I dunno how many people build for the purpose of conserving space, really.

Also I could have sworn blue was 1 hour. I used it a lot last night x.x devil horns are definitely 30 minutes though.

And sweet, a hint to a future item!

Edit: Reducing the time on blue would be nice, in my opinion. Maybe in line with devil horns etc. Not just because it annoys some people, but also for people that are trying to farm seeds x.x The fact that you now have to wait for something to wear off before re-using it really makes farming blueberry, devil horn, etc seeds difficult lol.

Good call on the seed thing, totally didn't realize the implications of the "can't use it, that effect is already active" change we did a few days ago would have. Will change it so you can always use it, but will just get a "No effect, was already active!"

And reduce the timer a bit.

PS: Hamumu said he finally found the real "Seil Seed From Clothes" bug! The fix will go in soon! (May only affect new trees planted..)

Awesome on all accounts.

I just have to say... I honestly thought I was going to play this game for 30 mins, tops, based on the screenshots and review.

But now, I'm... I don't know... 30 hours into it? Which is spectacular for an iPhone game. After hopping around between worlds, I realized that all the hotels were either empty rooms or poorly organized... So I set out to make a good hotel.

Every room has its own small or big lock and I put entrances on all the rooms so that people can lock or unlock them as they wish. I help people with items they need and change out their surrounding walls for them. I help them with how to link doors, make items, and secure their rooms.

I honestly think I now have the best-managed hotel in the game and people are always emailing me asking for rooms.



Creating this sort of metagame for myself is what this game is really about. For me, it was creating an awesome hotel. For other people, it is making a maze or a complex platformer puzzle full of lava and spikes. I think you guys have something really big on your hands if you manage to market it right. Good luck!

Oh, and my hotel is HotelMewoko, if any of you TouchArcade people want to check it out.

And reply to this comment if you're one of the 30 people renting from me. haha

Not a renter but I have been there to check it out before haha. And yeah I love seeing what others have made. I'll be doing more actual building and designing once I get my SEEDIARY project up to date. Until then, that's what most of my time is going toward lol.
