1bitHeart Update - 9/13

Hi All

I hope that you are enjoying 1bitHeart!

Sorry to keep you waiting, but we have fixed the following bugs that you reported:
  • Concerning the sound balance problem
    When making the Steam compatible version, some issues came about regarding the volume levels of the sound in the game. We have gone through and fixed all of this, and it should be working as intended now.
  • Fixed the problem where some voices were played twice.
  • Small text corrections
  • Other fixes for minor bugs.

In 1bitHeart we have made an achievement for each character. Looking at the rates of which these achievements are achieved, we noticed that Sakuma seems to be very popular at the moment (September 13, 2017)
She's a character that speaks rather harshly, but at times she really has a cute side to her.

Which character is your favorite?

We hope that you continue to enjoy 1bitHeart!

About This Game

Welcome to 1bitHeart―the latest title from Alicemare and LiEat developer △○□× (Miwashiba). In this unique and endearing adventure game, take on the role of Nanashi, a lonely, agoraphobic boy, as you solve a slew of mysteries around town while also making friends.

This is the story of a world in which pretty much everything is controlled and watched over by computer programs.
One day, Nanashi―a young boy who has been cooped up in his room―meets a mysterious girl.
“Let’s make some friends.”
Nanashi accepts the young girl’s sudden invitation without giving it much thought.
At that very moment, some very strange things begin to occur in town...

Detective Part (Story Mode)
Gather information and topics by exploring the town and speaking with people to progress through the story.

Conversation Part (Story Mode)
Use the topics and info you’ve gathered to piece together conversations while progressing through the story. (The game ends when your HP reaches 0.)

Free Mode (After clearing Story Mode)
Talk and mingle with the residents of the town, make friends, and play mini games in Free Mode.

*This title was originally a free game, but the Steam version includes specially added events, etc.

This was the 3rd game I made, where I first experimented with a side-scrolling system, voice over and detective elements.
I probably spent the most time working on these 3 things, including revisions.

When designing the town, I had foreign cartoons in mind and was aiming more towards a foreign audience than a Japanese one.
However, the game is set in Japan of the near future and the character design is aimed more towards the Japanese aesthetic.
I took advantage of the fact the game is set in Japan to make some cultural references here and there.

"An adventure game where you make friends". Not a typical tag-line, but if there is any aspect that takes your fancy I hope you will play my game!
