I originally played this game 30 mins after its first release over a year ago. just came back today to see the changes, although it's still just a demo, I loved the added features! really hope this gets made into a full game (would especially love to see multiplayer!) either way had fun streaming it

any idea when the release date for the full game will be?

I just played part way through the steam demo. Everything is in place for this game to be very good. Not sure exactly what the end goal is but the base gameplay is amazing. It feels a bit linear, at least to start, and I get why, but I feel like a bit more of a nonlinear feel would push this over the edge to great. The writing could use a bit more brevity. These things aside I loved what I played and look forward to when this releases.

one of if not THE BEST indie game i have ever played!

please finish this game so that i can play it more

That means a lot! Thank you for the support! 

We've been travelling quite a bit to showcase the game in as many related events as we could lately, while staying hard at work at developing the rest of the game content - it'll still take a while to complete, but do stay tune for more updates on the project :D

(+1)

The art style is really captivating. Also the music is really good. <3
(btw i can't find something cosmological to feed the cat lol)

(+1)

Thanks for the kind words, but oh nooooo - you can find the jar of Rock Star in the Cockpit :) Hope this helps! 

(+1)

I love your game !

(+1)

Thank you! :D

(+2)

By Far The Most Satisfying Game on the indie Chart ๐Ÿ“‰ and The Space Cat ๐Ÿˆ Put the Icing On the Cake  ๐Ÿ˜ .... 

I loved the music theme so much I couldn't resist making a remix since I am a artist ๐Ÿ˜‚ whom ever did the music for this game I'm impressed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ can't wait till it's fully released 
(+1)

:DDD Our very own studio director (El) made the tunes for the demo, and he'd like to thank you for this fire hiphop remix! 

Also soz for the super late response, we've been away doing roadshows for the last few months so things are a little slower her on Itchio for us atm, but there will be new exciting updates very soon!

(+2)

The art is amazing 

(+1)

We appreciate this! Hope you enjoyed the game too :D

(1 edit) (+1)

this is so cool 

(+1)

Heya! Thanks for the kind words! :D

(1 edit) (+5)

This is incredibly cute. 
I drew fanart <3


(+2)

OMG! YAS! And thanks so much for sharing this on the Discord channel too!!! This is super super super cute - you can even see Starkid's reflection XD XD XD AAAAGH! *dies from cuteness overload

(+2)

So cool!! I loved it, do you need someone to traduce to spanish?

Waiting for more :3

(+1)

Thank you for the kind words :D We're considering localizations globally - including Spanish, so feel free to shoot an email our way to hello@khayalanarts.com ~

(+3)

I tried to kill the cat by landing on him with my spaceship, but it softlocked me - the quest to capture him was left unfinished, and when I left, the game seemed to think I captured him. I was so sure that was the way to get him, too...

(+1)

Heya! That's actually a creative (though rather sadistic) way to approach the objective XD We'll be taking this into account for sure ~ 

Thanks so much for playing and letting us know your feedback! :D

(+1)

Very fun game. I love how the cat looks.

(+1)

Heya thanks for the lovely videos! We saw your part 2 as well, and we hope you enjoyed adventuring through space with Nebula :D Stay tuned on any of our channels for more upcoming info on the full release ~

(+1)

hey i played your games and had lots of fun doing so!!!

(+1)

Heya! Thanks for the awesome video! We hope you've had chill space travelling experience with this demo - and do stay tuned to any of our channels too for more info on the full game :D Laters!

(+1)

Awesome Demo! The art style fits the cozy mood perfectly. Lil Beef loved his space cat he named "Big Chungus". The characters were definitely vibing in a good way. The planets were fun to explore and having them go in a full circle cut down on backtracking which was a smart design. The pod and locations are cool to look at and take in. The only bug we encountered was if we fly out of the pod on the Trashteriod, we fell through the ground when we should land. Keep up the good work. This is excellent! 

(+1)

Heya Beef Gravy & Lil Beef :D Thanks so much for flying through space with Big Chungus XD 

We thoroughly appreciate all your feedback and we're constantly working on fixing the glitches - so rest assured that the full game will be more of a smooth sailing, and yes Lil Beef - it'll be much more ginormous in size too! Full of activities and just more cat stuff! XD

So stay tuned, and thanks for the wonderful video! Hope to see you guys again in the full experience~

(+3)

your game has cate

+pespect

(+1)

And the latest patch lets you rename the cat too :D :D :D

(+2)

The way you walk around the planets really remind me of 'The Little Prince', It's really cool!

(+1)

You got it! Le Petite Prince is indeed a huge reference & inspiration for us when designing the planets/ moons~  

(+1)

Very cute game, the art is incredible!!

(+1)

Thank you for the kind words! More cute characters and expansive world design coming up in the full game :D So stay tuned~

(+1)

This is cool can't wait for the full version

(+1)

Thanks for the patience! :D Have a lovely day to you!

(+1)

This game goes hard

(+1)

Thanks! We hope you enjoyed the demo experience! More content to be revealed soon - so stay tuned to our channels :D

Hi! I am loving the game so far!! One question, how do I save where I stopped? I tried to find a save point but couldn't see one, and every time I reopen the game I have to start over :( Is the game meant to be a one sitting play? Once again, love the game so far! It's super cute and fun :))

(+1)

Hiya! Thanks for the lovely feedback :D 

The demo is indeed meant to be a one sitting play - roughly about 30-40mins duration to get any of the endings, on the other hand - the full game will feature a saving system :)  

(+1)

Ohhh, okay! Thanks for the clarification! Again, love the game!

(+1)

(+1)

Heya! We are working on it :D Thanks so much for the interest!

(+1)

Cant wait for it!! :D

Linux user here. This game looks awesome and I'm hearing super positive things, but when emulating it with WINE I just get a purple screen.

(+1)

Hello, thanks for the feedback! This Alpha demo is only currently optimized and built for Windows, however we are working on a MacOS & Linux version for a future update :D So in the mean time, feel free to join our discord or social media to watch out for more I NEED SPACE news! See ya!

(+1)

That's great to hear! I'm really looking forward to trying this when the new versions come out.

(+1)

I had a similar problem but I am using windows 10 and the screen was black not purple.

Hello! We're currently working to resolve this issue. Would you mind sharing your device's specs and giving some details on when and how the problem occurred? Thank you!

Ooh sure! I'll join, but IDK where to find your Discord. 

(+1)

i need space too

(+1)

but, why is space?

(+3)

The game is somewhat reminiscent of Outer Wilds

(+2)

It totally is! The space travel, the home planet, the musicians - they're all hugely inspired by Outer Wilds, and also many other games like Elden Ring, Toem, Hollow Kinght, Undertale and many more :D

(+1)

I played and I really enjoyed the game luck in development.

(+1)

ITS REALLY GOOD
but i have some criticism when ever the player is  is close to the cosmi cat it makes a space noise i suggest you find a way to get rid of it or implement it better, the reason why I suggest that is cause when i play games i usually listen to the back round music they have but while i was playing every time i get close to the cosmi cat their space sounds of ruin the vibe Secondly i recommend you make the ladder to the stairs more noticeable cause I got a bit stuck not knowing where to get the tool box. but that is just my critic but i want to tell you all that YOU GUYS AMAZINGLY GREAT like legit  am glad i got to experience this :DD 

(+1)

Hello! Thank you for playing the game and sharing your constructive feedback - we have gathered similar notes form other playtesters too - so we'll be working on those right away and apply the fixes to the next patch. Plus - we have some more awesome surprises in store for the next update too :D

Feel free to reach out and give your feedbacks/ suggestions whenever on any of our socials or discord channel! See ya!

(+1)

i have a question i am working on a big beautifull game but i am scared that i put soo much work on it and no one will play it. how did you promote your game? how did you make your game popular. 

(+1)

Idk about promotion and stuff, but bro, tell me the name or an insta page or anything I could use to find your game, Ill play it, and tell all of my (very few) friends about it <3

(1 edit) (+1)

Hi! We're still learning all of these things ourselves, so do take this with a grain of salt - we promoted the demo organically by doing a simultaneous post on as many relevant platform/ social media as possible, joining an event during this period or announcing the game during the event helps get the word out too! In our case it's really fortunate that the timing was perfect, as we released the demo and showcased it in Game Connection & GDC all in the same week :)

All in all - don't be afraid to put your work out there! it's always better to get harsh & productive feedback from the few that does play the game (especially in early stages), in comparison to waiting for the game to be 'perfect' and risk not having any input from anyone at all. So just go for it!

theres cat so 10/10

(+1)

Will this be offered on MacOS soon?

(+1)

Thanks for the question! We have tested it and are going to implement this on the MacOS, so yes it's on its way :D 

Sweet! Where should I track updates for the MacOS release?

(+1)

Hi, I'm a new game developer. How can I create an animated  purple background like yours?

(+2)

Hi thanks for the question :) We are currently using really simple png layering in Unity engine for the background. Though we do have an update coming for the backdrop system very soon! We'll be sharing more on the next patch - so do come and hangout with us on our discord or our socials to get more pawsome updates :D

(+2)

(1 edit) (+1)

I'm better at other games than this, and I know that you have a lot of positive comments but.. I was stuck on the first planet T-T Do you mind, idk, explaining the first steps to completing Dark Soils? Or do you recommend I watch a specific YouTube video on the game? Love the game style tho. 

(+1)

Hii, thanks for trying out the demo! Can you tell us which part got you stuck in Dark Soils?

Here's a simple guide to get you started:
- Use the telescope and follow the source of the sound.
- Get 2 items, return to the Pod.
- Go down the stairs on the Well to get a Toolbox.
- Return to your Pod and fix the engine with the Toolbox.
- Sit on the Pod chair and you're ready to blast off and explore!

If you're feeling lost again, check your Journal or feel free to contact us again. We got a discord for all game-related discussions! :D

(+1)

That was super helpful! Thanks!

(+1)

Made a video

(+2)

Thanks for the video! We hope that you had a great time exploring portion of the Catspaw Galaxy! Nice constellation too - we'll be patching in a more visible 'redo button' to make sure you don't lose your design by accident in the future :)

Please support this project by following/ wishlisting the game & drop by our discord channel for more #cat #space #constellation chill time! See ya :D

We loved playing the demo of your last game Samudra way back so we were really happy to try out your new game.
