May Update (Controller Support!)

It's been some time, but we are back with an update for On My Own!

- Players will finally be to sit back and enjoy the game with a controller as we are bringing gamepad support in this update.

- We've also been listening to user feedback, and added a couple new prompts in the game. When choosing to travel to a new biome, it's now more explicit that players will need both food and energy to make the trek. Also, there is a new prompt warning players when they are getting close to starving.

Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks, hope you enjoy the new update!

Alrigth, On My Own is an awesome survival game. The fact that there is no zombies, nothing that want to kill you and the one and the only enemy is yourself, your body needs. Resources are rare which makes the game hard and true realistic survival experience, and even the smallest decisions can makes a real big different. Decisions like chopping down trees to get enough wood to keep yourself warm during the night or looking for food resources or other crafthing needs like a jacket that keeps your body warm during the day in the winter season, those decisions are the hardest to make, which makes the game more challenging. However no matter how much you go foward into the game the basic challanges will be always there like food and energy. In my opinion, it was an epic experience and an awesome 16 hours, it's not about the 2D graphics, it's about the great gameplay which some think it's buggy but i played the game and it's working very well for me.
But the real question, do think you can make it on your own ?

Gather around children, for I will tell you a story. You kids these days are always on your gizmos and gajigmas and your toyotas but listen well for this is an epic for the ages. It was 1945 and I had just landed on the beaches of Normandy in Toronto Armenia, the days were cold and the only friend I had that survived D Day was my trusty friend Rob Ford and then he died. After that I was left to wander the frozen wastes of South Africa until I fell through the core of the world and ended up in Montana of the U.S. where I battled bears for their hide which I would later find out from a friend named "The Wiki" (it's Native American) that I could make it into a coat. I later slaughtered Wiki and his family in the great "Triangle Waist Fire of 1772" and took their sheep named Wooly as my prize, after flaying Wooly alive I discovered that I could make a rough bag from his liver and intestinal tract, I was no longer just surviving, I was Living. My name is ♥♥♥♥ You You Self Righteous Prick (It's Scottish) and this is Teddy Roosevelts story about Muhammad Ali that was told to him by Ghandi who was using mdma.

You move around at 1 mph, meaning traveling anywhere sucks. You run out of resources like energy and need to sleep after chopping 2-3 trees, which is course true to real life because most people need to sleep for the night after 1 hour of work......Was supposed to trap a rabbit, made the trap, set it down, and nothing happened. Very few animals came by it, but even the rabbits that did just walked around by it but never came up. That's a metaphor for how this is as a game. Play this game if you really like boring, poorly designed, poorly explained games.

2/10.

This is one of those games with very minimal EVERYTHING. First off, the graphics are 8-bit style and that isn't bad. Second, the crafting system has little things to make and they all are found out by putting random items together trying to make a new item. Third, the amount you can explore is quite small too.. only 4 places and they take energy to get to which is hard to keep since you get tired by cutting down 3 trees which is realistic but not fun for gameplay.

Would recommend but not to someone who doesn't like survival/crafting/open world games.

This is nice concept but game itself is way to simple, not enough content and mobile port doesn't work well on pc with mouse control. So no, don't buy it, not wort it.

On My Own is a very short game, but what it does it does exceptionally well.

It has a great soundtrack and while playing this game you get a great sense of accomplishment. Especially because of how little it costs, I highly recommend this game, but keep in mind that you will finish the game very quickly

I wanted to really enjoy this game. The atmosphere, art style and music all make for for a very engaging experience. There is a storyline and I can tell that it probably grows with you as you progress. My only issue is that the controls were not very intuitive and it does seem like a game that could be too easy. I didn't play enough of this title to judge it very harshly but that's my two cents. Purchase at your own risk of not enjoying it/wasting money. Maybe grab it during a sale? IDK. You choose.

I wish the game would let me know that I should have some food prepared between biomes, before telling me I starved to death on my way to said biome and then deleting my save file of 3 hours. I also got really focused on finding foxes and forgot to eat. I had plenty of food, but then I "starved to death" and another save file of 5 hours was deleted. I understand it's trying to be realistic, you should think of this intuitively, you should figure it out, etc. but forcing a complete restart after hours of tedious gathering and crafting just feels like a slap in the face.

Also, the UI is clunky and annoying. So many times I frantically tried to forage an item, only to shoot an arrow or chop a tree or lay a trap. And I'm not sure if this was intended or not bug if you put obsidian on the ground, it disappears. You'd have a tool tip telling you what an item was, but you'd end up grabbing another item nearby. It's annoying to use the last of your energy harvesting something only to be teleported back to your cabin without having had a chance to grab the item. I have some other complaints, but I just don't remember them all.

Edit: And now the game froze and deleted (unpurposefully, I believe this time) my latest attempt of 3 hours. I usually attempt to complete everything in a game no matter how mediocre, but I think that's all for me today...

This game shows real promise IMHO.

Five dollars gives you a retro feel, simplistic game with a neat interface. You spend more time playing and foraging than you do trying to figure out how to play the game - which is good.

The soundtrack (which appears to be 2 tracks only), is EXCELLENT - and goes well with the flow and feel of the game. There a few small annoyances, but it IS and EA game and that is to be expected.

I look forward to whats coming, well done DEV's.

8/10

Awesome game, it's a classic point and click game meets open world survival.

I earned every achievement, from fishing to bow hunting to simply chopping down trees like a true lumberjack and guess what? I did it all On My Own.

Seriously though, this game has a beautiful soundtrack, hope it gets released seperately as a DLC. Simple gameplay mechanics, plenty of updates due, very minimal bugs in my entire playthrough, I only encountered one which restarting the game fixed, friendly developers that listen to the community and of course an interesting game to begin with.

If you're a fan of open world games, pixel graphics, point and click mechanics, great music, killing animals and eating them, then jump right in. Looking forward to playing the level located in the mountains once it's released and buying the soundtrack once/if released too. Awesome work, Chad & Kyle!

The only point of this game is to be constantly foraging for food.

You have 6 health and energy bars, most energy you'll ever get back after sleeping is 1 or 2 bars.

You lose energy too fast to really be able to do anything.
On the plus side you teleport to your house when you run totally out of energy.

You have to remember all crafting recipes all the time.

Sometimes the crafting menu works, other times it doesn't. For example:
The game wouldn't let me combine sticks + rock to make a trap. Kept tryng until it worked.

I put a log on top of a rock in my crafting window thinking it would replace them item, instead I couldn't move or do anything and had to restart the game again.

Your inventory is too small to really be useful.

Inventory screen is frustrating, often opens and blocks your view.
For instance When i was trying to set a trap, the inventory screen kept opening, took many tries to actually set it.
If you actually manage to set a trap, you don't catch anything anyway, I had 6 traps (many tries just to set one) that were all empty all the time. In my total game time, I caught one rabbit.

Items on top of items, you often do something besides what you wanted to do. Like foraging, but instead you chop down a tree, because the two are too close together and trees have a large hit box.

On my 5th game (1st few games were too bugged to keep playing), I couldn't set a trap for the life of me, after trying for 5 minutes I gave and I also gave up on this game as well.

This game is more of a lesson in frustration then anything else.
