Just a request to have the game also compiled for linux when it releases, if possible, Thanks! (I don't know how to word things so if this sounded rude in any way, I'm sorry.)
The no-code engine I used back than to make this game wasn't able to do that and I lost my game files, unfortunately. I should make an update.
half naked firefighter?! im in
Hi, just wanted to let you know that someone joined our discord server and started advertising you'r game saying that it needeeds 30 people playing it on steam, asking to go to a website with the name of you'r game, downloading, entering the password "beta" and entering the discord #, i didn't knew if it was phishing or not so i banned him, so just to let you know in case it's not from you (discord id if you need more details : Snow Blood Wolf#0466)
Hi. Enjoyed your game and am looking forward to the full version. I noticed the art was similar to another Hell based game I played -- Knock Knock Traveling Soulsman. Were you involved in creating it or is it just a coincidence?
That's just a coincidence, but thanks for the recommendation. I did enjoy that game a lot!
is the full game out yet?
Just curious, how long did the demo and art take?
Most of the demo and art was done in a week. It was a very long week. 60-70 hours or so.
10/10 i want more firefighters in my dungeon
Also your background makes reading really hard since i try to see white letters on orange(?) bg
I love Alichino wew
love the artstyle!
So far this game is intriguing
Alichino is so freaking cute + she's a degenerate
Only the best for Inferno Inc.! She's a *damned* good pick. A *Hell* of a worker. She ought to *Malebranche* out a bit, though; might be good to ask Mammon for a loan.
this game is amazing
scar = best girl
Not gonna lie, that's some shocking work on a game out there, I really hope to hear some news, consider my support, I liked how solid and varied the interactions were, keep up the good development, loved the game
Thanks for your comment!
Sorry for the late reply. It wasn't sure where this game was going for a while. Truth is I'd love to get back to it eventually, but it won't be a direct continuation of this demo for two main reasons - limitation of the engine I used and story structure. Don't worry, the tone and characters as well as the varied interactions will stay :)
I don't know when I'll start picking this project up again, but I will let you know over the page announcements. Don't expect it anytime soon though, as I'm currently focusing on another short VN title to practice my skills.
please finish this demo. i would really like it if you finished, i give you full support
Thanks a lot for your support. I will take this project up again some day, but not for the time being.
i havent finished this game yet but its so cool! i really like the character designs, there awesome. hey, is there anywhere i can send fanart too and can i make fanart? its a really cool game and i would hate or it to go unappreciated.!!!
I'm happy you like the game! Of course you can make fanart, I'd really appreciate it <3
really fun visual novel :) good job :)
This game is really good and there’s so much effort put into it also
cannot wait for full release
Malacoda my beloved.
really fun demo will defenetly play this more ant wait for the full game. (psst dont tell Malacoda but i like Alichino more)
I really like this demo, the characters are very charming and cute, I absolutely love Alichino - she's my favourite, but Malacoda is great too.
I did encounter a minor issue with reloading a save on the browser version. The save was made mid-way through a text box scroll when Alichino is explaining the pirate ship expenses to Malacoda, I didn't intend to make the save halfway through the dialogue, but when I re-loaded it, it froze. I tried opening the menu and skipping the text but for some reason that didn't do anything and for some reason I couldn't open the menu again - forcing me to refresh the page (and this problem is still there if I try and reload the save after refreshing). Not sure how the save system works, but maybe having the load revert to the start of the text as opposed to trying to load exactly where the player loads might fix this.
I really hope this gets ironed out as the game so far has a lot of potential and I'm looking forward to playing a full build.
thanks a lot for your review! I'm happy you enjoyed the game. (Don't tell anyone, but Alichino is my favorite as well!)
The menu was meant to be hidden, as I didn't bother with the UI for such a short game. This sounds like a hot mess though, so I will give it a look and hopefully find a solution
the description is whiter then i am, but otherwise, game is perfect.
There's so much on my to play list phew.
Eitherway I absolutely adore Scarmiglion and her design <3
Generally still feel the same like the previous version, only with some additional route and more interaction aka more knowing our demon girls here which is nice~
I mean who knows Malacoda or Alichino can blush! The previous version doesn't makes you think so! Either way keep it up! I'm sure this will be a lovely game in the end!
Hey Terry, thanks for your video! I had a lot of fun watching you (re)play the game. This means a lot to me :)
This game was delightful and fun! We both enjoyed the demo and a lot of fun, and can't wait for the full game. The art is wonderful. The story is interesting and want to see what will happen next. We did try the other outcomes quickly and still found it funny. The dialog is well written and enjoyable to read (or in our case, voice over). We will check out the other games you made. Keep the good work!
Hello Audrey and John,
thanks a lot for sharing this, I had a blast watching you guys play and voice over! Good catch with the "I'm a basically a celebrity" (8:09) - I've had so many people read through the script and play and no one ever noticed. (Myself included.)
I don't have any other games yet, but if you want you can check out the content update for this game, releasing next Monday.
Keep up the good work as well! Your format is really fun and you deserve more attention :)
The dialog on this game is hilarious, especially when you come in late.
"You're looking kind of rugged. And not in a handsome kind of way."
Looking forward to more developments.& the sexy firemen, in piles or in sex dungeons.
Thanks a lot, ToomanyIDs! There will be more shenanigans soon. I can't promise firemen, but there might be piles of pirates. Cheers!
It doesn't start for me.. Any tips? The music starts and all that junk but the actual app wont open.
Hey Ratticus, are you trying to run the game from your mobile device? The game does not work for iOS. If you're using Android maybe just try the browser version instead.
I really love the concept for this and can't wait to play the full game. The contrasting personalities Mala and Ali have are awesome. The art is super cute and the music fits very well. Awesome job devs! <3
Thanks for playing! Very entertaining! It was also pretty cool to finally see someone trying out different paths like coming late to work :)
Belly dancing... okay. Where can I sign up?
An uneasy amount of parallels to my own WFH life! Beautiful game.
Very cute! I had a lot of fun playing this at work.
Please keep US all updated as to when you decide to progress with this project! I am interested in seeing how creative this could become :)
For everyone playing this I hope you leave your ending for US to see. Here's my commentary playthrough for all to explore, Enjoy!
Hey!! This game looks pretty interesting, I love the concept of demons working in an office lmao! The art style is also super cute omg... I was wondering if you would be interested in me helping to translate this game to Spanish? Completely free of course! It would be a fun project!
Thanks for your offer. I'm still working on the game. Translations are something I will consider once the game (demo) is finished. Feel free to send me your portfolio to email@example.com
Is this what home office feels like ? Because I am unemployed
omg plz finish
