I loved this game, I've been waiting for something like that since the first time you even mentionned a new big project (you know that old video with rymas 2 and two others projects xp )
And the least I can say is that the game delivered all I could ask for.

I would simply join the other on the fact that, given how the ending was handled and how Rymas and Teddy both had a fun post ending I clearly expected a post ending level.
So yeah, for a few minutes, I felt a bit sad.
But that changes nothing to the raw quality of the actual game. If you manage to deliver that kind of quality once in a while you clearly deserve patreon money to support you (could be years of course, I can only imagine how long it was to deliver something so well done by working alone)
My only regret is not being able to be one of your patron right now ^^

The game is -so good- so far too. I just beat the 6th guardian. My favorites so far are the water temple and the ice temple, and the guardians at the end are my favorite too!

The game DOES seem to have a memory leak somewhere, because after about 3ish hours of playing, the graphics started to vanish randomly and it started crashing random programs on my computer XD

Very glad to hear you're enjoying the game ^^

And sorry to hear it's causing troubles on your pc. This game wasn't made on the latest unity version and I know it can have some glitches depending the pc used.
I honestly thought they were all solved, but I obviously couldn't check all type of PCs ^_^;

Well, hopefully it doesn't affect anyone else then XD It's not a -huge- issue since like most memory leaks, it is solved by just closing the program and rebooting it. I just gotta make sure to take a break every two hours XD

I'm onto what seems like the final boss now and I just gotta say I hope this game has a postgame because I kinda super love these characters, especially the game genie herself. I really, uh, kinda... identify with her. Taking a bunch of people and having them go through fun adventures with giants and stuff is totally my thing, haha.

Ehr... Ahhh... Honestly postgame isn't a thing here, sorry to crush your hopes other then your pc ^_^;;;

Really hope you're wrong and not really at the end of the game so that you got a little more to see.
But glad you like the characters so much, it means a lot to me ^^

Oh nooo! Well, I'm at the second boss fight against my best friend the game genie, and gotta climb up to her face now, so I dunno! Just, uh, if you ever release a post-game and charge 50 bucks for it I'd buy it >.> That's how much I like 'em XD

That was great! I especially enjoyed Majina's challenge level, in large part because of the messages on the walls and because of the 'secret' break room in the back :)
Any plans for future games in the same format?

Congratulations on finally finishing 'Crystal Wish'. Ignoring the quality of the default 3DCG models that haven't exactly aged gracefully*, the balanced battles were of a professional quality.

*The costumes being unpleasantly distorted for the characters with big breasts made me realise how far things have progressed since 3DCG was released over a decade ago.

Considering the number of years that have passed, you probably forgot about me. Regardless, I'm glad to see Fiamme (Kandle) and her master, since I like kemonomimi characters. Seeing her tail wagging was super adorable.

I'm going to organise my feedback.

■Game Controller Support■

I'm using a DS4 (Playstation) controller, and there's one thing that needs to be addressed with the game's default.

1) When you go into the character menu outside of battle, you cannot move left and right with the control sticks or directional pads (to access the Henshin).

To work around this, I had to edit a custom keyboard layout configuration for the controller specifically for this game.

■Conversation Scenes■

1) A SKIP text function would be desirable. I've gotten game-over a few times, so being able to fast-forward through the dialogue windows would make replaying scenes less tedious.

2) A HIDE WINDOW command would also be nice, since you put a lot of effort into creating custom poses for all of the characters that are obscured by the dialogue windows.

■Spelling/Grammar Mistakes■

Seems there's still dozens of these that were missed by your proof-editor. The mistakes in the dialogue didn't severely detract from the overall enjoyment of the story, which kept my attention for the most part. I didn't think to write down all of the mistakes I came across; I don't know if you would be willing to fix anything catalogued.

EXAMPLE 【Item】: Parfume → Perfume

■RPG Gameplay■

The battles are well-balanced and I enjoyed some of the boss gimmicks that required unconventional strategies to overcome. Removing EXP and Level grinding was a smart move that I appreciated immensely. Though, considering how I had Meg as a Pirate throughout most of the game, I guess the game could've had a severe item grinding issue that I thankfully avoided having to deal with.

■Epilogue■

With the way the ending was going, I assumed the game would transition to an epilogue stage where the player had free reign to visit all of the past zones and interact with the NPCs and guardians like in 'The Legend of Rymas' (rematches while using the new Henshin, etc.). Having the Guardian of Time disappear from her dungeon made it feel lonely when I revisited it hoping to see her again. As it stands, I recommend everyone reading this to keep spare saves before certain battles/scenes in case there's one you would like to revisit in the future...

■Extra■

I noticed there was an extra scene if the player tried to push the Strength Guardian while Meg has transformed into one of the Time Guardian's minions. This scene made me wonder how many other variable scenes you might have included. Hopefully there aren't any secrets I missed.

Forgot about you? Totally not, especially the comment about how it was a shame that I failed to keep game making.
Back then I was already working on this game, so I hoped I could eventually show you that my game making was doing fine X3
(Actually I also remember a note ages ago about kemomimi, the game almost had more animal ears cause of that, but they eventually didn't make the cut).

Anyway thanks a lot for the comment ^^

I'll keep in mind the bug report of the controller and I'll definitely have to see if and how to improve my dialogue system more.

For the grammar mistakes I have to really defend my proof-editor, my english is understandable, but a mess grammar-wise.
He did A LOT of work just to help me and it is thanks to him that the mistakes got reduced to few enough to not detach from the experience.

I'm glad you appreciated many of my design choices, I spent a lot of time fine tuning the gameplay X3
And I can assure you the item grinding is not really a thing (not that I'm aware of at least), some testers even played the game without realizing Meg's Pirate can be very useful.

I'm also sorry you wanted more from the ending (not the first saying so either), but this time I prefered to focus on the main game, making the game end an actual end.
And don't worry, that easter egg your found was one of a kind, it just felt right there so I added it, but none other instances needed the same treatment.

Well, after running the game down in a day, I do have to say the ending felt... compared to Rymas, a bit abrupt?

I figured you would maybe have a rechallenge of weaker enemies with your upgraded new forms and make the bosses far stronger to compensate as a "post game" kind of thing. Like the guy above me stated anyway, that was a bit of a let down. Hell, you could have even thrown in a CHOICE for the wish to really shake things up lol, rather then the girls make it automatically.

no hate for the game though at all, I thoroughly enjoyed it all the way through, except for maybe a FEW small things.

For one, You don't have a leveling system in place, but random battles were.. basically unavoidable in quite a few areas, even when they didn't serve much of a purpose outside item grinding, which became redundant after the second genie showed up and became a vendor.. but even then, items weren't needed to beat any boss per say, but they did make some a bit less frustrating.. I found the cyberspace boss to be particularly infuriating because she kept healing back a crap ton of life no matter how much I tried to keep everyone full healed...

I've always been a fan of these old school 3D models you have used since Rymas so I really did love this game on the playthrough regardless of a few gripes.

Really worth the wait regardless, so thanks a lot Xry!

Thanks for the comment, I really appreciate it.
But be more careful the next time, you posted it as a reply to someone else and I almost missed it, a true shame!

And I'm getting a few complains about the ending honestly, but I really wanted to focus on the main game, so I added more there and let the ending be just that, an ending.

Sorry also that the enemies gave you troubles, but they are supposed to be a bit of an obstacle so I'm kinda happy to hear they are doing their job ^_^;

Anyway glad you overall enjoyed the game and thanks for the feedback ^^

I know some loved that, but it was a feature I wasn't happy about so I didn't implemented it this time ^_^;

Awww, that's a shame, since I definitely did love that feature, but if you decided it wasn't right for this new game then fair enough.
