I must admit, i didn't thought this game would make me want to play more and more of it, but as the story developed, i can't help but to love it. I finished whole game and I must admit, it's fantastic. I think gameplay and shooting mechanic could be a little more engaging, but it was great nonetheless. Art style is also great and I would love to see something sort of "gallery" in future (just a thought). I got this game in racial justice bundle, and it pay off whole pack for me. Kudos from Poland ;)

Thank you so much, I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! Having a gallery would be a great idea, it could be unlocked after you finish the game :O We're also trying our best to be respectful and accurate with our representation of Poland, so we hope you enjoy that too once it comes out ♥

So I got this game as part of the racial justice bundle. I honestly didn't know what any of the games in the bundle were, I just bought it for the heck of it. This game alone made the whole bundle worth it. I absolutely adore this game. I started playing, just mildly curious about what it was. I ended up binging the whole game because I loved it so much. This very suddenly and very quickly became one of my favorite games ever. The story is literally so interesting and keeps me on the edge of my seat and the gameplay is fun without making me tear my hair out. I adore this game and I can't wait to see what further updates bring.

Wow, thank you so much! Waking up to a comment like this really made my day, I'm glad you enjoyed it that much! Also, thanks a lot for donating to a good cause ♡!

(+1)

Started playing an hour of the game, it's actually fun so far. 

(+2)

I wasn't sure about this game at first while it has absolutely gorgeous art, it was a little bit slow at the start but some of the stuff the character said stuck with me so I went back to it and now I'm uploading a second part. Awesome job I am hooked ^_^ 

Thank you so much for taking the time to do a Let's Play! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Just dropping in to say this seems to work well under wine (linux).

Thank you! From what I've heard, it seems to be a bit buggy (visual glitches mostly), but I haven't been able to test it myself.

Been playing and enjoying this from the big Racial Justice bundle, but I appear to be stuck. How do I reach the "Nightlife District" in Kiel? I've circled every street several times, and anywhere that looks like it might be a path somewhere new is barricaded off. Halp?

Did you take the underground train?

The subway...? That takes me to the industrial district, where I can meet with Leonid to upgrade weapons, but I haven't found another way forward from there. Or am I misunderstanding you?

After a certain point in the story, the Nightlife District gets unlocked and you can access it using the same subway station you used to go to the industrial district.

Hmm...

  • We've been to the NSB building twice.
  • After the second visit, we convened at an injured person's apartment.
  • There, a mysterious contact who helped us during the NSB thing gave us a task to receive a package in the Nightlife District.

That seemed like it'd be a good time to unlock the Nightlife District? or... maybe I misunderstood something, and we're supposed to take the package to the Nightlife District? In which case, where's the package? (This is where a main-quest tracker would be handy, haha...)

(+1)

Oh, you are not at a point where the nightlife district has been unlocked yet, the package quest needs to be completed before that. The characters will tell you exactly where you have to go, but just in case: You need to go to the bar, then to the pharmacy and then you'll be told how to proceed.

(+7)

The game is incredible. One of my favorites. The best thing I couldve gotten out of the bundle for racial justice. And because I love it so much, I'm super exited for the later updates. One of the things I'm hoping for is a better movement system. Being able to go diagonally would be super great, and adding a running animation when I hold shift would make it feel more natural 

Keep up the good work guys! I'm looking forward to how things turn out!

(+5)

Where can I find the soundtrack? I tried looking it up and I couldnt find it anywhere. I thought it was really good. 

(+2)(-1)

One of my favorite games bro. This was sick. The story is great, the characters are lovable, the combat feels like it actually has depth which I cant say for other turnbased rpgs, and the sections outside of combat are fun too. 

10/10. Totally worth it, and deserves way more recognition.

How do you save? I lost all my data because I thought there was auto-save and couldn't figure out how to save and had to quit (after just getting past the training dummies)... ugh.

EDIT: Dang it, you have to get to the crow. It would be really nice if it was mentioned at the beginning of the game that you have to reach save points...

EDIT #2: There was a really cool running animation by Rourke when he spots a live enemy, but this isn't actually used for the running that Shift toggles. I also wish Right Shift would allow running, at that; if the game will get any updates, re-bindable keys would be excellent, to play the whole thing with one hand (such as moving X and C to other right-handed keys, or doubling up movement onto WASD). Anyways, very cool game that blends multiple genres together: VN, action, and RPG!

EDIT #3: Found a typo: "I did met a few of his underlings, though." (during Lynn and Atiye's talk)

Wow, this is easily the #1 best game in the entire Racial Justice & Equality bundle. The attention to detail is unbelievably profound; characters' individual gestures like Loran's tantrum and portraits changing emotions within one line of dialogue are amazing! The puzzle of combat also feels very satisfying to win.

(+2)

this game is absolutely so stunning from the animation to the game mechanics, i absolutely adore all the characters and the storytelling, that i finished the entire 3 chapters in two days its!!! just so beautiufl!! and i love the themes the game bring forth as well such as not glorifying war, and how government parties/leaders can be corrupt, i enjoy this game immensely and can't wait for new chapters to come out!!! thank u so much for creating such a wonderful game!

(+3)

This game is phenomenal! 

I could end my review right here, but there's so much I want to praise about this game.

Story

This game has an unique and gripping narrative of the game and had me hooked from the outset.  The characters are well developed and have relatable personalities. I was instantly attached to Lynn from the start and as the story progressed, I could understand why. 

Graphics/Art Work

The mixture of 2D art and pixel art *chef kiss*.  I'm obsessed with pixel art, like so obsessed I've decided to learn how to draw pixel art. I believe pixel art is a timeless art form, especially for games. The pixel art and animation is phenomenal, especially the background scenery. I LOVED when the characters were in a high place, the camera would move too (e.g. on top of the build looking down on the NSB HQ).  

Combat System

The combat system is refreshing and intuitive. I like the idea of using Morale to boost the characters attacks and how this can be boosted depending on your chosen dialogue.

Sound/Music

I thoroughly enjoy video game music soundtracks and the music in this game always set the tone of each scene. 

This game deserves more accolades as there's so much attention to detail: incorporating different languages, using interpreters, using a modern setting with a timeless art form (pixel art).

I was lucky enough to get this game in the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. I cannot wait til the game is completed and released in full as I want to back the developers and whole team as they deserve all the success. 

Thank you so much team. I can't wait for the next chapter!

**Sidenote: I laughed when I read the email sent about the work food thief (I won't say anymore) but I found this so related. **

**Sidenote 2: Sorry if there's any spelling and grammar mistake, honestly I'm just bad at both**

Itch said an update occurred 3 days ago but I see nothing in the development log. What was the change?

(+1)

We haven't updated the game. I don't know why you might have gotten a notification, what did it say?

If you go to the game page here on Itch, and then click "More Information" to see the dropdown section, it says it was updated "4 days ago" now. Maybe it was a change in authorship on the page or something instead of one to any of the download files.

(+2)

How do I update long gone days when chapter four comes out?

(+3)

To update the DRM-free version, you'll have to manually redownload the game. Your save files are stored in a different folder ( Users/{your username}/AppData/LocalLow/Bura/Long Gone Days ) so you don't have to worry about losing them.

(+2)

I love this game so far! I haven't made it to the second chapter yet but so far I love the characters, the story and the gameplay! Unfortunately, I'm retiring the laptop I've been playing on and moving all my games to a desktop and my save files did not transfer over when I copied the folder onto my new computer. Does anyone know the location for the save file in the file explorer?

(+1)

Hi there! I'm glad to hear you've been enjoying the game. Your save files are stored in Users/{your username}/AppData/LocalLow/Bura/Long Gone Days, I hope it's not too late to make a backup of them.

(+1)

Thank you so much! I was able to transfer my save over, I can't wait to keep playing!

(1 edit) (+3)

This game is really cool! The plot and the characters are intriguing, and the gameplay mechanics are interesting! The combat system is also quite refreshing, as the way morale is used makes me think more carefully about my moves instead of just spamming abilities. But there are some minor quality of life changes that I think would be nice. It'd be nice if i could see the hit chance of my attacks as well as the exact amount of health my opponents have. Also, it'd be convenient to see everyone's turn orders.

(+3)

This game is a true gem, so happy I had the chance to discover it in this bundle! Everything is just outstanding, from character development to the game art! I enjoyed every part of it! This game deserves so much more attention! I'll offer it to a friend on steam to thank you for this experience and your participation in this bundle.

Such care for the language barrier, side quests, events, lightings, decors... Wow. The whole universe feels more than solid, and it's amazing to see the story progression and every character point of view on occuring events.

I'll definitely be here when chapter 3 will release!! I was just a bit surprised how chapter 2 boss was so easy to counter using items that targets all enemies at once... In my humble opinion, you still have room for improvement concerning overall combat balance and items, but this is the only minus I could find, and this speaks volume.

Keep up the good stunning work and thanks again!

(+1)

Wow, thank you so much for your kind words, it means a lot! We might still rebalance some enemies that were already present in the first chapters, so thanks for your feedback too!

Wow. Adored the game so far, can't wait for Chapter 3! Just wondering, where do we find the Steam key? I got this as part of the Justice Bundle and can't seem to find it! Was hoping to leave a glowing steam review

Thank you so much! Unfortunately, the games from the bundle don't come with Steam Keys (this is to prevent people from reselling the keys). The only way to get a key is to purchase the game outside of the bundle or directly from Steam.

(+1)

Makes sense, hadn't thought of that! Thank you

This might be a daft question, but how do we update the bundle version of the game as new chapters come out?

(+1)

To update the DRM-free version, you'll have to manually redownload the game. Your save files are stored in a different folder ( Users/{your username}/AppData/LocalLow/Bura/Long Gone Days ) so you don't have to worry about losing them.

Thank you so much! Sorry, I'm not used to itch.io, but want to keep up with this brilliant game!

Me encantó el juego, he estado robando algunos juegos del bundle y hasta el momento este ha sido el mejor! Es hermoso, tanto en lo referido a los gráficos como a la trama. Espero que el tercer capítulo salga pronto. ¿Habrá que pagar por ese nuevo capítulo o se actualizará en mi juego? De todas maneras, estoy dispuesta a pagar, porque veo que vale la pena. Felicitaciones por este tremendo juego!

Me alegra escuchar que lo hayas disfrutado! Al haber obtenido el juego desde el bundle, tendrás acceso a todos los capítulos, no hace falta pagar algo extra. Cuando se actualice, recibirás un correo de itchio (y además avisaremos por nuestras redes sociales con anticipación).

Saludos!

Disculpar mi intromisión, pero ¿qué es el bundle? Yo compré el juego desde acá en itch. ¿Tengo acceso también a los extras? 

Sí, tendrás acceso a todos los capítulos, parches y actualizaciones, sin necesidad de pagar algo extra.

El bundle se refiere a la gente que obtuvo el juego por haber donado dinero para la iniciativa de caridad organizada por itch a principios de junio. Dentro de los juegos que obtenías por donar, habían juegos que solo contenían el primer capítulo o una demo, así que varias personas han tenido la duda si en nuestro caso tendrán acceso a los próximos capítulos.

Great! Saludos

I adore this game. I have never been a fan of war/guns/military the way that I have seen some people in my life be, and I really appreciate how this game treats those things not as something to be glorified, but  as a danger and something to be wary of.

Some other things I loved:

- the art style! the pixelated versions of the characters were so cute, and the close-up shots added dimension and personality to their dialogue.

- the side quests!  they're a really cool and clever way to encourage exploration in the game. 

- gaining morale instead of xp. this is kind of a minor detail, but I really liked how my choices (esp in dialogue) would affect the morale of my characters. I liked seeing my characters happy and motivated, and that gave me an incentive to play in a way that would gain morale. like I said, it's super minor, but it made me more empathetic towards them, which is cool!

I can't wait for the other chapters to come out! Keep up the good work!

Thank you so much for your kind words, especially for complimenting the art and the sidequests 💖

No es porque sea chileno como uds, pero este es el mejor videojuego independiente que he visto a mis 36 años. Si uds fueran gringos, el documental "Indie Game" les habría quedado chico. La trama es tan poderosa y el mensaje tan profundo, que es inevitable quedarse pensando luego de jugar esto . De verdad los felicito. Soy profesor de Historia y había llegado a ustedes por Nanopesos. Me picó el bichito del diseño de videojuegos y este interés se ha reforzado luego de Long Gone Days. Espero que continuen con el desarrollo de este gran proyecto y espero con ansias también la publicación de nuevos trabajos. 

------------------------

It's not because I'm chilean as you, but this is by far the best indie videogame I've played along my 36 years old. If you were "american", surely the docu "Indie Game" it would have been too small for all of you. The plot is so powerful and the message is so deep that is inevitable  not think about relationship and communication barriers we build ourselves. I am a History teacher and I found you after Nanopesos. I got stung by the world of game developing and that interest increased after Long Gone Days. I really hope you continue developing this great project and also I hope with hunger the release of new works.

Cheers!

Muchas gracias por el apoyo! Esperamos poder hacer muchos más juegos después de este 🙌 

Saludos!

The deeper meaning of this game is so relevant in this political time. Long Gone Days doesn't glamourize guns, war, and corruption like other war-themed games. It shows how damaging guns and war can be and the results of their misuse. Not only are the game's mechanics and characters wonderfully created, the storyline is engaging and it's simply fun to play.

I can't wait for Chapter 3.

(+2)

Wow, thank you so much, this really means a lot! That's one of the most important things we wanted to portray, so I'm glad the message wasn't lost ♥

(+1)

one of the funnest games i've played, the aiming system for combat was awesome and i loved the story and all the characters. the art style is AMAZING and i really love the graphics, from the pixel stuff to when it's close up to the characters

i wish it was easier to go from save file to save file though, and an easier way of telling if you've lost access or gained access to a quest or not T_T

(+1)

Thank you so much (and also, thanks for your feedback!), I'm glad you liked it!

(+3)

Absolutely loving it so far. Grabbed it in the Justice bundle but will probably be looking for a way to donate to you or buy for some friends. Thanks!

(+1)

Aww, thank you! There's no need to pay any extra, having been part of the bundle was rewarding enough for us!

(+3)

This has to be one of the best games I've ever played. The plot is awesome and the graphics are really my cup of tea. Can't wait for the next chapter!

(+1)

Wow, thank you so much!

(+1)

Really love this game.  Couldn't stop playing it and can't wait for the rest to come out.

Thank you so much!

(+1)

Had my eyes on this one for a while and was pleased to see it in the racial justice bundle. Couldn't put it down once I picked it up and LOVED every minute. Great art, sound, gameplay. Can't wait to see more of the characters in future chapters!

Thank yooou, I'm so glad to read that ♥!

(+1)

A friend recommended this, I just finished all available content and I'm in love

I never liked games that use guns but I'm glad I gave this one a try. It's fantastic, can't wait for the final chapter <3 I love all the characters so far, it's so easy to get attached to them!! 

(+1)

Thank yooou! Personally, I wasn't that big on military fiction before either because most of it tends to focus on how "cool" guns are, but thankfully there are some fantastic stories that are way less glamorous and more critical.

(+1)

Yes exactly!! I almost skipped this one when I saw "military", oop. So good to be proven wrong 😂

(+2)

This game immediately stood out to me when I looked through the Racial Justice bundle and I knew I had to play it. It was an excellent experience! The art is gorgeous, the characters are likeable, and incorporating language barriers into the dialogue made it so immersive. I've already recommended it to my friends. Eagerly awaiting the final chapter :)

Thank you so much! We're really glad to read that ♥

(+2)

I got this game from  the Racial Justice and Equality bundle and I'm in love!! The story, characters, interactions and the art are amazing! Also that tiny cat you added was so cuuuute, I couldn't stop myself from interacting with it haha! I'm only 2 hours in but would it be okay if I made fanart?

(+1)

Thank you so much!

And of course, we love getting fanart ♥! We have a Discord channel where most people share their fanarts and even their progress in case you are interested ( http://discord.gg/LongGoneDays )

Got this in the racial equality bundle and a friend recommended it. They couldn't have recommended a better game! The story grabbed me almost immediately, the art styles were fantastic, the music was good, the gameplay was fun! Just beat the game a few minutes ago, and can't wait for what the future holds with it!

Again, I absolutely loved it! It reminded me of some of the dystopian books I used to love, so there was a great sense of nostalgia for me in this game.

Thank you so much! We were inspired by dystopian fiction so we're glad you felt that way ♥

Of course! You took all the great stuff  from those stories, and left out all the unnecessary stuff that's always added in!

The game seems great so far, but for some reason I can't exit it from the Menu. When I choose Exit and press X it just goes back to the game.

(+1)

Hi there! We intend to change the wording in that part. That's an "exit menu" button. To go back to the title screen/exit, there's another option inside the settings menu, but I agree it's a bit confusing.

Okay, thank you. That makes sense. Where can I find the option to go back to title screen?

I love everything about this game. The morale system, the art, and especially the characters and dialogue! I am so excited for more

Thank you so much!

Was this game made in RPG Maker

(1 edit)

Hi there! We are using Unity. Our original prototype demo was made in RPG Maker MV, though.

(+1)

Wow! Just... wow! I got this as part of the Racial Justice and Equality bundle and I was interested in the modern RPG setting but the characters, the art, and the battle system made me stay! Just finished the first chapter and I can't wait for more!

Thank you so much, I'm glad to read you liked it!

(+1)

Amazing trailer, Sold Me!  Started off like a webtoons ad though.  That made me smile.

(+1)

The artwork is amazing, I'm curious to know what software did you use to create this masterpiece?

(+1)

Wow, thank you! The game is being developed in Unity, and I use Aseprite for pixel art and Photoshop for the rest.

(+1)

The art is amazing, the characters are well-written, and the sidequests are very engaging!! I had a lot of fun playing this and can't wait for the next chapter to be released.

Thank you so much, we can't wait to release the rest of the story either!

(+3)

I don't even know where to begin with how much I have adored playing this game. I've loved everything about the experience. The pixelated art style is so gorgeous, and all of the small details add to the immersion. I loved exploring all of the little nooks and crannies of each level, and I think encouraging the player to do that with the quests tab is genius. You have created such a complex and intriguing world with its own lore, and you did it without making it feel forced. The combat system was refreshing. I usually loathe the combat portions of games,  but I found myself genuinely excited to prepare for the next battle. I am beyond excited for the release of the next chapter. Thank you for your art :)

(P.S. I know all of the recent comments mention buying this game as part of the bundle as well, and paying $10 for it was definitely a steal, but if you missed the bundle, this game is still a bargain at $15. You won't regret it ;) )

(+1)

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review! That part about the world and its quests made my day, we tried to put a lot of love into that ♥
