It reminded me that the best adventures often happen when the guidebook is blank and your itinerary empty.

i may have encountered an error where the backpack + menu buttons just disappear (i opened the game again to fix it..!) but other than that, it was an enjoyable experience and the art, music, and dialogue are lovely!!

oh weird, i'm sorry about that! i'm glad you were able to fix it though! thanks so much for playing :)

Same thing—backpack and menu randomly disappear. First time it happened, I couldn't save the game, had to quit via task manager, and had to start from scratch next time I played. Second time, it got me stuck in the cave because I couldn't access the magazine (I had a hunch I should do that) after I'd picked it up, and I couldn't save or quit the game either. Again, I had to use the task manager to quit. So that's a really nasty bug.

But I played the game through, at last, and I really enjoyed it.

Hello, I have MacOS Mojave v.10.14.3, and after download it it says: The app cannot be opened, nothings else. I tried to go to Security and see in case I have any blockages for outside developers, but is not the case, what can I do?

The game looks amazing, congrats!!<3

Shoot, sorry about that! Did some googling, looks like this can be an issue for Mac Mojave. Let me know if this doesn’t work: https://answers.unity.com/questions/1377896/the-application-cant-be-opened-mac-build-problem.html

I got the same error in Catalina (10.15.5), but the Unity post fixed it:

chmod a+x AnAfternoonRippling_Mac.app/Contents/MacOS/*

afterwards though, I got 'developer couldn't be verified' and had to go into security&privacy panel, General, and unlock, start game, and allow 'open anyway'.

I'm stuck in the cave. I'm able to access the two rooms, and the wall painting. But I don't know how to get out!

Have you read through all the pages of the magazine yet?

I'm stuck at the same spot. Read the whole magazine, and still not getting anywhere.

I think you need to read the magazine at the party place! where the whiskey is

I have the same issue. Stuck in the cave, read every dialogue, made a hand print, and read the magazine in full several times, including in the room where the whiskey is. But nothing happens.

I absolutely loved the game so far, even though I had to restart it several times because of bugs. But this time, even restarting isn’t helping :’(

Any idea how to get unstuck? I would love to experience the game in full :D

Hi. I played twice, and twice I got stuck at the chess players. No party for me. Is it the end of part 1? I see screenshots here that I haven't seen in the game

heyo, sorry about that — the game is still incomplete, and I've only released content up to the chess scene. the full game will be released soon-ish!
