Hello!

Have you downloaded our game in the end? What did you think about it?

I had free time, so I thought I'd give it a shot. It was amazing. I totaly lost track of time. Art is absolutely stunning, music is beautiful, movement is so fluid, and game mechanics are unique and interesting. There is no pressure in game, just simple fun and stunning visual journey. Depth of detail in this game is mind blowing, from sound when switching buttons on menu, to 3D art depth. For a dozen people to work such a short game and still give 100% just deserves every chance to succed in future. I'm really hoping and looking forward to a full game. Congratulations to your team and thank you for this amazing journey!

Hello there!

Such a positive and rewarding comment, thank you very much!

You just quoted many aspects and strengths we wished to implement in our game :)
It means we were not too far off our goals!

Cheers!

I know it's a graduation project, but I'd absolutely love to see a full game from this. The art is beautiful, and traversal feels great!

Hello there!

Thank you very much for your gameplay, we loved your video!
You were so close to the 200 collectibles on your first run :)

The team is currently transitioning from the graduation year, hence a lack of information concerning the future of the project at the moment.

Yet we had a great time developing SYMPHONIA and we are highly pleased to see amazing reviews like yours. We are analysing our options for the upcoming months.

You will be notified of any piece of news on our social networks anyway!

Cheers!

When is the Switch version coming out

(+1)

Hello!

Thank you for your comment. The Switch version has been developed as well since the project was tested by professionals on a Switch Devkit. 

We are still looking into this matter, as to how to release a Switch version properly.

Stay tuned!

The art is phenomenal!! I love the character design of the main character so much, and each animation is just amazing. The main game mechanic of using the bow in it's various ways is really innovative and immensely satisfying to play. The concepts you were able to introduce and iterate on in the short playtime are really impressive. 

Such a sweet, beautiful game I'm glad I took the time to play!

Hello!

What a sweet comment! Thank you!

We are glad you had a great time, we tried to show as many concepts and ideas as we could during this sort game.

Cheers!

The music is also great.The video is also amazing!
The action is the best!

Thank you so much! ^^

Really astounded this was a student project, especially for the score and instrumentation and the phenomenal blended 3d background work. Good luck for a very bright future, hopefully in game dev!

Hello there!

Thank you very much! 

We did our best to develop a game that would connect with our players and leave a mark. It is ambitious for a graduation project but we are glad it worked out in a way :)

Cheers!

This. was. phenomenal. I absolutely loved every second of it. I had some issues with learning the controls but near the end I really felt like I had them figured out. Such a phenomenal game. I want more. So rad.

Hello!

We had a great time developing this game and creating our universe, we are pleased to see you enjoyed SYMPHONIA thoroughly :)

We really loved your video and reactions!

Stay tuned!

Will this work with a Dual Shock controller?

(2 edits)

Hello!

Yes it will! Be sure to plug in / connect your controller before launching the game.

Some players rely on the DS4 Windows program to emulate an Xbox 360 controller. It is up to you :)

Cheers!

FYI, your download links download files with some weird names, e.g. what's called Symphonia_Windows.zip is named "06_Milestone_JURY_BuildPC_LABEL_GOLD_V02_SPEAR.zip" when I try to download it.

Hello! 

Yes we are well aware of this matter, we are looking into it as I type in my answer :)

Masterpiece of a game the sound track is amazing the game plays so smooth with a controller. I had to back track because I missed some coins but it wasn't even a problem cause the game was so dang fun and just a superfluous amount of eye/ear candy treat yourself to this great game my play through with all coins here:

Hello there!

We watched your whole video!
Congratulations for completing our game with a perfect score, you are a Legend ;) 

It is nice of you to share your gameplay and to mention our survey in the beginning, it helps!

Stay tuned on our social networks for future news!

(+1)

Definitely excited for future news! You all did an amazing job :D thanks for making the game!

(+2)

Oh my god, what an amazing game! I haven't played anything like this for months.
The gameplay is incredible and simple. The mechanics of the character of jumping higher using the bow of the violin and being able to get caught / launched in the red cushions made the game very fun.
Level Design is very well done. Only in one moment of the gameplay did I end up not seeing a thorn because of the background.
The sound effects are incredible, but one of the death sounds is a little too high, since the first time I died I was really scared by the noise
The soundtrack is one of the most beautiful I have ever heard, especially the music that the character plays the first time he arrives on stage and the last one he plays before the credits.
* One more point: the shadow that guides us for a good part of the game, in my interpretation seems to be the music itself guiding us so that at the end of everything it can play again in that place. (I don't know if this part of the comment is very useful, but I decided to put)
{Sorry for errors in the message the google translator is not 100% accurate}

Hello!

I assume you might be Portuguese from your displayed name. Thank you very much for your long comment (and sent in English), we love having detailed feedback about our game!

Rest assured that our Game Designers and our Sound Designer will know about your review. All in-game sounds are highly interconnected and tuned, we did not mean to scare you in the first place :)

Very nice and poetic interpretation of the shadow by the way!

Cheers :)

Loved the game, followed on Twitter, and took the survey. It was simply delightful! Love the way music is infused in the gameplay and level design. Reminds me a bit of Rayman's musical themed levels. Fleshing out the idea and adding more mechanics could really result in something beautiful, whimsical, and unique.

(+1)

Hello!

Cheers! It pleases us to see you mention Rayman :) 
Rayman is indeed one of our main sources of inspiration for SYMPHONIA!

Thank you for your time filling in the survey.

Stay tuned!

A nice, bite-sized game! The controls were very smoothe and it was easy and fun to get a hang of manouvering the environment. The music and visuals were very well crafted as well! As a point of improvement for the design I would argue that some of the interactable elements of the environment blended in a bit too well with the fore-/background, like the drums, the spikes or the coushins at some places. Luckily, the game is very forgiving, so it did not affect the experience too much, but in a longer/harsher game, it probably would have caused some frustration. All in all still a very well put together experience ^^

(+1)

Hello there!

We are glad you had a great time playing our game :)

Your piece of advice is duly taken into account, as a matter of fact we are already aware of this point! If more is to come for SYMPHONIA we will keep this in mind ;)

Stay tuned!

(+2)

this is a good game, i really enjoyed the short game, music was amazingly set together and the mechanics were smooth. unfortunate that it was so short, maybe more levels coming soon? there's only 1 thing that bugged me was that when the buildings in the background were collapsing the game started to lag a bit, for the rest of the ride the game was very smooth!

Hello!

The game is quite short indeed :) We did our best during these eight months of production to provide interesting content. 

More levels coming? We will see :)
For the moment we are still working at making the game known to the largest amount of players.

Thank you for your comment and your review on the collapsing buildings, we will see to this point!

(+2)

Awesome game. I like the style, music, smooth and entertaining gameplay, and really nice "teaching through experience" tutorials for some elements. I have a lot to learn from this game.

Hello!

Your comment brings joy to the team, especially our Game Designers!
They did their very best to come up with clever and interesting ideas regarding the tutorial or the Level Design.

Stay tuned :)

(+1)

so I can't claim this? The mobile site won't let me add it to my collection 

Hello!

I hope you could still play and enjoy SYMPHONIA nonetheless :)

Your issue might be linked to the Itch.io webpage, you might want to contact them directly.

So beautiful and atmospheric!

(+1)

Hello!

Thank you very much on behalf of the whole team!

C'est excellent. Evidemment, la première chose qui frappe est la direction artistique, magnifique et très originale, envoutante, onirique. Le jeu est lancé, et c'est la musique qui vient s'intégrer avec grâce et justesse dans cet univers poétique.
On se demande alors: "tout ceci est bien beau, mais le gameplay va-t-il suivre? Et le level design?" Non, non, tout va bien, c'est simple, mais l'idée est bonne et le level design suit parfaitement, bien pensé, une courbe de difficulté maîtrisée, bref, pour ma part, j'en veux encore.

Je travaille en tant que testeur sur le site Nintendo-Master. J'ai entendu dire que vous comptiez porter le jeu sur Switch, j'ignore si c'est déjà le cas, en tout cas, dès qu'il sera jouable, je m'occuperai personnellement du test, avec grand plaisir! En attendant, sachez que je vous suis depuis déjà un certain temps sur Twitter, et j'attends la suite avec impatience!

Bonjour ! 

Quel commentaire ! Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié SYMPHONIA, ça montre que les heures passées à avoir une cohérence globale ne furent pas vaines :)

Le jeu existe déjà sur Switch, dans une version étudiante interne à notre école, et pour des raisons évidentes ce n'est que la version PC qui est sur Itch.

C'est un plaisir d'avoir un retour d'un "follower" de longue date, vous serez au courant de nos avancées sur notre Twitter évidemment !

Nous prenons note de votre proposition pour le test :)

Hello from Spain!

Fantastic game! 
I don't have a gamer computer, so I had the doubt about if my computer could run it, my surprise was that  everything was ok when I started to play.  
I love it! 

(+1)

Hello!

And this is our first review from Spain 🥳

We put many hours into optimising our game, we are glad it paid off! 

Thank you for your comment :)

(+3)

Très beau jeu ! je me suis régalée. Les graphismes sont splendidee. Le game play est vraiment sympa et bien pensé. Mélodieux et poétique, j'adore ! merci ! :)  

Hello !

C'est nous qui vous remercions pour votre commentaire, c'est très encourageant de voir de tels retours.
Car nous avons pris beaucoup de plaisir à faire ce jeu !

La team SPEAR vous salue !

(+3)

Mesmo que o jogo seja bem curtinho, é muito gratificante de jogar ele, principalmente pela jogabilidade diferenciada (já que todos os Dashs são provenientes de um impulso contrário ou lado desejado) e pelo carinho tanto na parte de design gráfico, quanto na parte musical, nota 10.

Olá!
Nós não falamos português, mas muito obrigado!


It is a first for us, to receive a comment in Portuguese!
We are glad you liked our game, we hope the grade is 10/10 ;)

Stay tuned

What a beautiful little game released in a time of nothing but pixel art. The worst part of this game for me was that it was too short. Thanks for the privilege to play your little game.

Your comment might be short but it is strongly rewarding ! :)
We had so many other ideas for SYMPHONIA but as always there were boundaries; the production span was 8 months only.

Stay tuned! We currently are analysing our options and we would love to see Philemon wandering more within SYMPHONIA

(+4)

Amazing game
Love each space, quite immersive and as a musician the soundtrack is just incredible I liked it a lot, the platform is well planned and entertaining.
The only thing I didn't like was that it was so short.
The sound design is incredibly good and the composition of the pieces left me amazed, I honestly did not expect the music in general to be so detailed, but it makes sense after seeing the detail that the game has in general and that can be appreciated from the beginning of the game.
The art style and character animations are very well done and designed, the mechanics are very original and well calibrated.
Congratulations on making a great game. Greetings from Mexico.

Hello and thank you for your comment, it means a lot :)
We put so much energy and dedication into this game, and you are not the first one to quote all the details here and there in the game!

Stay tuned on our social networks, something might be possible for SYMPHONIA in the future, who knows? ;)

Cheers!

Coming from it's vid, and  it looks super neat, but I feel like it needs work. Little things. Maybe a formal tutorial for the violin playing. Maybe more than just sparkles on the spikes; maybe just make them a more prevalent, brighter color... or go full 'red = dead' on them.

And while you can go all desaturated on the looks, the style, to me, doesn't seem to fit the gameplay. But this is hours and hours of Hollow Knight talking, so grain of salt on the last one. Muscle memory + visuals are very much kicking in, I think.

I should probably download the demo and give it a full peek. Don't want too assume too much... GL on the game, tho. :3

Hello from Italy!

This game has a beautiful gameplay, the sounds are of the highest quality, the level design is of the best. I loved the small details like the animations of the sprites and the scores that, as a musician, I appreciated infinitely. 

I also like that there are various compositions that are played and with a good ear, in the soundtrack, they stand out.

The only thing that in my opinion is to be redone is the final animation of the giant bell, which goes slightly off-sync with the audio and does not work as smoothly as a real bell.

As for the performance of the game it is optimized very well because I tried it even with a very weak laptop and I kept constant and high fps.

 Congratulations for the job, wish you the best!

We are glad you had a great time! I will let our Sound Designer know about your review
The bell animation is performance-oriented but we are working on different possibilities! Thank you for your comment :)

There is no input for keyboard? This kinda sad as I wish it also have keyboard input

(+1)

Hello!
Actually there are keyboard inputs :)
This game was designed for the Nintendo Switch initially, that's why we highly recommend playing with a controller.

Nonetheless if you wish to play with your keyboard AND your mouse, here are the inputs. You will need your mouse to play!
I need to warn you, we are French, thus we developed the game with French keyboard inputs! (just install a French keyboard on your computer and switch inputs, it is simple)

Mouse Left button: Poke action (using you violin bow, can be performed in various directions: up / down / left / right)
Z: up input for violin bow use
Q: run towards the left
S: down input for violin bow use
D: run 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)

(+5)

this game is absolutely amazing, plays like a charm, and has such a unique atmosphere im so in love with it!! i cant stop playing it!! the design and animation of philemon is so charming and lovable. this game is so memorable to me for both its art and music and i wont stop recommending it!! thank you for this absolute masterpiece!!! im gonna recommend it to all my friends <333
