The game crashed when I finished the bug splatting minigame. (This was a shame, because I genuinely want to find out how this game ends.) Is the bug-splatting minigame required to complete the game?

As previously mentioned, the game crashed after I completed the bug splatting mini game. I enjoyed the mini games you included (I was able to do the fishing, and that did not crash). The audio was not very good, but you had some! Some of the sayings were funny-ish ;) The graphics would have scored a notch higher if you had just used something less bright than the neon green to complement the bright green :) Nice game, and I would have liked to try and complete it, had it not crashed on bug splatting.

This is weird, it doesnt crash on my PC... Any chance you could give me the crash log?

I don't know how to get a crash log from the game. It doesn't seem to produce one.

From a bit of further testing, the minigame sometimes ends after I crush only 24 bugs, at which point it ends without crashing; however, it sometimes ends after I've crushed 25 bugs, at which point it plays the 'minigame over' sound, then stays frozen on the minigame screen (and has to be forcibly quit). Maybe the problem is that the game is trying to find an empty slot for a bug in a filled grid or something? For players: the crash is completely avoidable by never squishing the 25th bug, since the minigame happily ends after you've crushed 24.

Worked fine but somehow I got the clues to mess up. The thorny bush was hard to find, so I clicked my way across the island. Suddenly I could open the chest which didn't work before.
Nice mini games :)

Interesting stuff. I didn't totally understand who I was or what I was doing, but the strange names and cryptic dialogue did evoke a curious world. I played the fishing and bug catching mini games, but I couldn't find Death's Den anywhere in the south east, so I'm not sure I saw everything.

Impressive considering you only really had one day.

Although my game didn't crash when I finished the Bug Game, it ended itself when there was one left and I still couldn't access the bush.

It fit the theme really well although I was never really sure what I was meant to be doing so I could not complete the game.

It could be an interesting game once some of these things get fixed, solid entry.

Well it's a nice little game. Nice mini games.

Though it get's really boring because you just can't find anything in here. For my ADD type of gaming the island is too big, and there is too little to do on the big territory.

Nice idea though and kind of nice run on the theme.

Very big plus points on community though. You got everything down man.

I haven't experienced the crash others mentioned, but there's not much else to experience either. I'm not sure what your goal was, but it's obvious the game is unfinished. Sorry, but there's nothing about this entry that could hold my attention or make it stand out to me.
