10 out of 10 for me , i just love this kind of games. music's good,  scene's beautiful. i played it for 3 times in one day and can't get enough.  

赞赞赞

this is cool overall but controls makes my right hand hurt VERY MUCH

Thank you for sharing the keyboard controls (many times!) Right now I only have issues "Poking" using the left mouse button. I tried holding the direction and then press the mouse button, I tried holding the mouse button and then press the direction, I tried to synchronize pushing both at the same time, but nothing worked. I repeated the same with right and middle button out of desperation. I would think that "down" + poke would be easy... but nothing. So I am stuck in the tutorial when I am supposed to jump on the wall and then propel myself upward. Is jumping on the wall even related to the poke use? Thank you for your time. My little girl is really looking forward to play once we figure this out.

I accidently selected levels from the menu and in those levels the mouse button works... but not in the tutorial !

why can't i 'claim' the game to add it to my library? weird how you can only d/l it, eh

Yes, that's how free games work on itch!

thanks for the quick reply.

Congrats! It's also on GOG now!
Great game

Congratulations on a great game. Very beautiful and with a magnificent soundtrack, I am very happy to have the opportunity to play this masterpiece.

It's sad how some people made a virus version of it

That's why you shouldn't download it from other/non-official website.

100% agreed

Just saw this got released on GOG! Nice.

First of all, thank you very much for giving us this glorious, yet painfully short game. Games as an art are such a rarity these days around, in this age of games as services. I've enjoyed Symphonia a lot. I hope, you will bring us more games like this one. Or maybe even a sequel?

I've also came here to mention that I've made myself a quick fix for controls, which I intend to share. Since I do not own a proper gamepad, I've made a really simple 6-lines long AutoHotKey script which enables any WASD-keyboard to properly control the game. Using it is a tad bit easier than swapping language in Windows settings.

So, if anyone still want to play (or maybe re-play) this game, here's my script: https://disk.yandex.ru/d/FlBWE-ZmXJOy_A

Obviously, you need to download AutoHotKey in order to use it: https://www.autohotkey.com/

Other than that, everything is simple - just click and play. Hopefully, it will help somebody to enjoy this little masterpiece.

Have a good one!

Can u make An Mediafire Link?  i  kinda dont trust That website

(11 edits)

No. I upload everything on Yandex Disk nowadays, at least because YD doesn't block my files for their own reasons. I don't know your reasoning, but I'd rather trust YD, than find this script unavailable for download tomorrow. If it make you feel anyhow easier, I've never had any troubles with YD so far.

Anyone else is free to download my file and re-upload it to Mediafire or wherever else. I'm not doing it though.

Hey! I truly have to say something about that.

I'm a game developer, and, i truly warn you that MediaFire is more dangerous than itch.io.

Hola, tengo un control de xbox 360 pero cuando inicio el juego no lo idenfica y no puedo jugar

¡Hola!

 Sólo tienes que conectar el mando antes de iniciar el juego. Por favor, vuelva a consultarnos si el problema persiste :D

sip, hise eso antes de iniciar el juego.... esta igual

(+2)

Amazing project, I wanted to congratulate the team for this awesome experience <3. 

Thanks again.

Hello! 

It means a lot to us, thank you very much :)

Cheers, take care!

¡Me encanto el juego! Fue corto pero lo disfrute mucho, espero que lleguen lejos y mientras lo jugaba me preguntaba:  ¿Por qué esto no esta en Steam?

(+1)

¡Hola!

Si has disfrutado jugando a Symphonia, ¡nos alegramos!
También esperamos llegar lo más lejos posible y realizar la versión perfecta que siempre tuvimos en mente :)

En cuanto al lanzamiento en Steam, Symphonia fue un proyecto estudiantil inicialmente. Y por lo tanto no podíamos lanzarlo en Steam en ese momento. Este proyecto fue diseñado para estar disponible de forma gratuita, de ahí su presencia en Itch.io.

Dicho esto, el lanzamiento en Steam es uno de nuestros objetivos a corto plazo, ¡así que estad atentos a nuestras redes sociales!

Saludos y cuídate,

sooo beautiful

Hello!

Cheers, it means a lot :)

acabo de terminar su juego y aunque corto estaba bastante bien hecho no tuve ni un solo erro a la hora dejugarlo, en serio increible y aunque tuve problemas con los saltos ya que no me pude familiarizar muy bien nunca llego a ser molesto y como pregunta a los creadores. se puede hacer contenido en youtube acerca de el? ya que me gustaria hacer un gameplay en español

¡Hola!

Muchas gracias por su comentario.
Nos alegramos de que te hayas divertido jugando a Symphonia.

En cuanto a la jugabilidad y los comentarios en español, ¡no dudes en hacerlo!

Es muy amable por tu parte preguntar de antemano, pero cuanta más gente comparta sus jugadas, mejor será para el juego.

¡Saludos y cuídate!

From what I have seen in the trailer it is a beautiful game which prevents me from playing it because I do not have an xbox control to play with it and there is no option to change the controls and thus use the keyboard

Hello there!

Thank you for your comment on our trailer!
It is true we did not have the time to implement button bindings in this student version, and thus the game cannot be played with the keyboard only. 

But here are the controls to play with your mouse and your keyboard!

The game was developed with a French keyboard! Thus your traditional WASD keys won't be functioning properly.
Please install a French keyboard first, then switch your keyboard and you will be ready to go!

Mouse Left button: Poke action (using you violin bow, can be performed in various directions: up / down / left / right pressing ZSQD respectively)

Z: up input for violin bow use
Q: run towards the left / violin bow use towards the left
S: down input for violin bow use
D: run towards the right / violin bow use towards the right
A: Play your violin (Y input on a Xbox Controller)
Space bar: jump (analogical, the longer you press, the higher you jump)

P: Pause Menu (presse again to exit menu)

Space bar in-menu: Confirm

Cheers and take care!

el mejor juego del planeta!!!! :D

Hola! 

Muchas gracias 🙏🙏

Muy amable!

Cheers!

I do not know if you are going to see this message but, anyway the game is maybe the better i played here, just 2 things: 1 - The controls -.- and 2 - the things that hurts the player, sometimes needs to be more visually obvious but in general the game for me is 8/10 Good job.

BTW: 200/200 XD

(1 edit)

Hello! 

I try to answer every message we receive, so here goes! 

The controls are quite special, and we tried to offer a different and unique gameplay. https://forms.gle/T5fdGqpW5wYAP2Md7

If you want to provide some detailed feedback, please do so on this attached survey.

For the signs and visuals we always had in mind to make information clear for players, good point about spikes, we will see to it.

Congrats for the 200 notes!!! Another Legend of Symphonia has arisen! 

Cheers!

Hello, I came for the Guinxu video, and I would like to support you in some way, and a doubt, has it already been released on the Switch? My laptop is not the best for gaming, I hope nothing bad happens to you with your games.

Hello there! 

Thank you, that is very kind of you to offer your support! 

Send us an email to symphonia.game.2020@gmail.com and let us discuss this :)

We are currently working to release this version on the Nintendo Switch. When ready, stay tuned on our social networks to get the news!

I do not see why anything bad would happen, take care.

Cheers!

That is great to read, we are glad you liked it!

This game is beautiful and well done!! I do agree the controls could use some work but overall the game is amazing.

Hello there! 

Thank you for your comment, it means a lot for us.

Herein above is a short survey about SYMPHONIA.
You will find a specific section on controls. Feel free to give us some details about what could be improved :)

Cheers and take care!

hola tengo un problema con el juego y es que se me hace dificil jugar en PC ya que no tengo un control de Xbox o algun otro mando que me permita jugar comodamente el juego

¡Hola!

Si no tiene un controlador, aún puede jugar con un teclado y un mouse :)

¡Aquí están los controles para jugar con su mouse y su teclado!

¡El juego fue desarrollado con un teclado francés!
Por lo tanto, sus claves WASD tradicionales no funcionarán correctamente.
Primero instale un teclado francés, luego cambie su teclado y estará listo para comenzar.

Botón izquierdo del mouse: acción de empujar (usando su arco de violín, se puede realizar en varias direcciones: arriba / abajo / izquierda / derecha presionando ZSQD respectivamente)
Z: entrada ascendente para uso de arco de violín
Q: corre hacia la izquierda / uso del arco del violín hacia la izquierda
S: entrada hacia abajo para uso de arco de violín
D: corre hacia la derecha / uso del arco del violín hacia la derecha
R: Toca tu violín (entrada Y en un controlador Xbox)
Barra espaciadora: saltar (analógica, cuanto más presionas, más alto saltas)
P: Menú de pausa (presione de nuevo para salir del menú)

Barra espaciadora en el menú: confirmar

Saludos y cuídate!

gracias

I tested this game, that I will sure I will enjoy...but no ... It was a painful experience. The graphics are beautiful, but the control (xbox controller) are awful... and if you miss the tutos ,witch I miss all of them, it's frustrating...

The physics is special... And I don't appreciate it

I don't recommend this game, sorry, I want to enjoy it, but I can't.

Hello!

Every comment is important for us. We are sad you did not have a great time while playing our game. But thank you for taking some time to explain your feedback.

Controls are taught within the game directly, you have posters and signs in the background, which explain controls in the first three rooms of the game.
You do not need more to reach the end :)

As for the physics (similar to our controls) we wanted to implement an airy gameplay. Philemon can reach important heights and takes time to fall.
It provides time to adjust your inputs. 

If you play SYMPHONIA again, let us know how it went.

Cheers,

(+1)

I just downloaded the game, it is quite good, I liked it, but I have seen some comments with which I agree, they should fix the controls so that there is the possibility of playing with the keyboard, it is quite confusing. Overall, very good!

Hello there!

Yes we are aware we can do better with our keyboard controls :)
But we only had a few months to create this game!

If we can produce a new version of SYMPHONIA, any player will be able to modify its keyboard controls correctly.


Here are the controls to play with your mouse and your keyboard!

The game was developed with a French keyboard! Thus your traditional WASD keys won't be functioning properly. Please install a French keyboard first, then switch your keyboard and you will be ready to go!

hello im leon and im speak spanish I came to this game for the youtuber ginxu but I couldn't test it because the game doesn't respond to me (it throws me an error)

Hello Leon!

You can speak Spanish here if you prefer, I do not but I will find a way to translate what you write here :)

We are thankful Guinxu took some time helping us, it was very nice of him. 

Can you give us a bit more details concerning your error? 

You have a release note heirein above (it explains how to install the game) in the links to help you. 

The game does not run on Mac and on 32-bits operating system, you might want to check. 
You can use a Virtual Machine running Windows 7 or a more recent version in 64-bits OS if you can, and you will be able to play SYMPHONIA!

Cheers,

Excellent Game, only polish and correct the keyboard buttons on PC, to be able to customize them and take advantage of the gaming experience, beautiful, I hope they can complete it

Hello there!

If you enjoy playing our game, then it is great news :)

We know many players do not have a controller or do not use a French keyboard.
If we can make another version of SYMPHONIA, we will provide a way for players to change their keyboard bindings obviously!

Cheers and take care,

Me parece un juego muy bonito, es corto pero la musica y los escenarios está muy bien hecha, cabe aclarar que me lo pasé con un mando de xbox one para sentir mejor la experiencia. 

¡Hola!  
¡Nos alegra que la hayas pasado genial con nuestro juego! 
Como mencionamos antes de la pantalla de título principal, jugar con un controlador Xbox se adapta mejor a nuestra jugabilidad.  
¡Estén atentos a nuestras redes sociales para futuras actualizaciones!  
Salud,


Hello!

We are glad you had a great time with our game!

As we mentioned before the main title screen, playing with an Xbox controller best fits our gameplay.

Stay tuned on our social networks for future updates!

El juego es excelente pero me tendria idioma español y ajuste de los controles del teclado, porque a veces para usar el arco del violin debia presionar varias veces el boton C

¡Hola a todos!  
Tengo que usar Google Translate, ya que no hablo español :)  
A continuación se muestran los controles del teclado y el mouse, en inglés.  
En cuanto a la tecla C, es un código de trampa oculto, que modifica por completo los controles de Philemon. 
¡Buen descubrimiento!  
¡Salud!

Hello there!

I have to use Google Translate, since I do not speak Spanish :)

Herein below are the keyboard and mouse controls, in English.

As for the C key, it is a hidden cheatcode, which completely modifies Philemon's controls.

Nice discovery!

Cheers!
