    Since when you send minion out for long the duration is predetermined we need to change the whole system for it to function like this. Though if I do a code rewrite I'll try to make it so the duration can be determined while the minion is out.

    Sure.

    Village Update

    Okay, this feature request is rather involved, but I have some ideas to make the village more interactive, based on the concept of the toilet.


    1. Make the Well a two-slot container. You put in a pile of shells in one slot, and they slowly fill with water and fill the second slot.
    2. Create a series of traps:
      • Small Basket + Vine = Basket Trap (Mouse, Turtle, Lizard)
      • Stick + Vine Rope = Small Snare (Rabbit and Squirrel)
      • Peeled Stick + Vine Rope = Medium Snare (Turkey)
      • Peeled Stick + Bark Rope = Large Snare (Fox and Wild Boar)
      • 10 Sharpened Sticks + 25 leaves + (tool) Shovel = Trapping Pit (Wolf and Elephant Bird) (Can capture multiple animals)
      • 8 Sticks + 5 Scale Skin + 8 Vine Rope = Lobster Trap
      • 1 Small Pot + 1 Bark Rope = Octopus Trap
      • 10 Medium Branch + 18 Scale Skin = Fish Trap (Can capture multiple fish)

    The well idea sounds nice, so my question is what will happen if the player puts empty shells in both slots? It wont fill? And how can we teach this mechanic to players without making it too confusing?

    I've included the trap ideas to our todo list

    I agree, this game sounds good, I'd like to try it, but AUD$4.49 is too much. It should be more AUD$2.99.

    Pricing

    Hmm, thanks for your comment.

    We've tried reaching out to Appstore for pricing recommendations. We're also talking with players on what they think is a good price for this game. Though it varies a lot and selecting a price point is harder than it looks.

    To make it easier for us I'd like to get your opinion on;

    1. Why does this game look like a AUD$2.99 game?
    2. What would make it look like a AUD$4.49 game in your eyes?

    Minion badge

    When the Minion has collected something the badge only shows "1" no matter what. It would be more useful if it showed:
    1. The number of things collected
    2. The number of unique things collected
    3. The number of storage slots used

    I can't decide if the second or third would be more useful. Perhaps you could make it configurable as to what the user wanted to count, or show three badges.

    We just got an idea from another player saying that collecting a lot of dirt & water was a pain so he wanted a building where villagers would work to collect dirt & mix them with water. So I think that we could make a new type of a building, different from the storages where villagers can mine stones, collect waters, collect dirts etc.. Added these ideas to our todo list.

    Making it configurable is more decision making for the player so to reduce that we will just show one of them. I added it to our todo list.

    Thanks for the promo code!
    Just played a bit. I was wondering why a peeled banana provide more energy, then the old man said, crafting foods reduces the energy spent on digestion. Oh. I think this does make sense (which also hints at that a prehistoric man may just eat a banana with its peel... Silly but logically), a good detail.

    You're welcome!

    Hard parts of foods are not that nutritious and need a lot of energy for digestion. They are good if you're dieting :p But not so good for prehistoric man.

    People eat bananas with its peel today. But they usually blend or roast it first.

    End game

    Wow, this game has come a long way from where it was before when I first started playing this (those graphics!!!)

    The new end game is a bit short in my opinion. I know there are lots more that the developers are building on but some suggestions for future "expansions":

    - Further exploration of the other lands. Marco forgot about us :(.
    - Ability to remodel the village e.g. remove rocks, trees, add more water etc.
    - Ability to interact a bit more with the villagers.

    Love the game and the developers! Thanks for listening to the input of the players!

    Not easy questions to answer, as I have not bought your game yet. But I would guess your game is comparable to Wizards and Wagons, perhaps, in some respects, which is a $2.99 game.

    Otherwise $4.99 for me should have above average to good production values, good gameplay, and engaging content - again, I don't have your game so I can't categorise. Old Mans Journey commands around $6.00 for good reason, and The Quest and Baldurs Gate command $10.00 above. But then again, this is just my uninformed opinion, so what do I know? ;)

    - Maybe Marco got lost? :p
    - Remodelling village, why do you want this feature? To optimize buildings?
    - Interacting with villagers is on mind.

    Feedback about game

    This game is very addicting and I love it. I'm so glad Alf's thought bubble got adjusted so it's not in the way anymore (Yay!). That was literally the only thing I haven't liked about the game :)

    So many hours!

    This game is so much fun. The devs really take their time and update it constantly. Its great to come up with new combinations and quests. You can even sign up for the beta version of their app and test it out and send feedback.
