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!

(+1)

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 ♥

So I may or may not have stayed up all night and played through in 6 or so hours..... This Game Is Fantastic. Definitely Top 10 I've ever played, it is so well made. It's remarkably thoughtful, both in the story and in the build. The complicated (in the best way) plot is complimented by simple controls, and the graphics are beautiful and charming, the maps are engaging, the character development keeps me on the edge of my seat... I have to play more! The detail is stunning, the little animations are so smooth... I lack words to express how thoroughly I loved playing it (hopefully me sitting down and not moving for 6 hours can express some of it haha). I'm a little obsessed. All my kudos and thanks to the devs for sharing this amazing game with us. Thank you!!<<33

I think the only thing I desire is a way to save + access the title menu at all times in gameplay. But, it wasn't a big issue at all. Thank you for including this in the Racial Equity Bundle too!

(+1)

Wow, thank you so much for your support and for donating to the bundle! I'm really glad to read that, and I hope you continue to enjoy the rest of the game ♥

(+1)

This is an exceptionally well made game. I felt extremly engaged and was routinly impressed by the transitonal scenes. Fantastic eye to detail made for a very immersive experience.  

(+1)

Thank you so much!

(+1)

This game is fantastic!  I got it as part of the bundle for Racial Justice and Equality, but I'd love to be able to pay the developers to thank you for working on this great experience.  What would be most beneficial to the team- for me to buy this game again on Itch or do you have some sort of Patreon? 
PS I'm very excited for the last chapter! I'm from Poland so once it gets to the Polish-speaking NPCs, I'll get to be my own translator :D 

I'd also like to know the best way to support the devs!!

(+2)

Thank you so much, we're really glad to hear you enjoyed the game!

Please don't feel pressured to pay any extra for getting the game from the bundle, we're really glad so many people donated to charity and also got to enjoy our game!

If you still want to do it though, buying it from itch would be the better option, and you'll get a Steam Key (the Steam version has trading cards, emotes, backgrounds and, eventually, achievements, and it also updates automatically).

(+1)

I'm terrible at writing long reviews but!!! This game absolutely had me hooked from beginning to end (of chapter 2). I'm a huge sucker for pixel/jrpg style games, and as soon as I saw how lovely all the preview art was I knew I'd have to play it.

The story completely sucked me in! I literally went to bed and as soon as I woke up I kept playing because I didn't want the experience to end. The Core and everything it entails is just so interesting, and it's fun to compare it to how modern society is right now. The tonal whiplash in the small outpost got me so good and I felt so invested. Absolutely excited to see how everything will end!

I usually find turnbased combat super boring and repetitive but this combat was so fun! The different styles fitting the different characters was such a great idea - I love how Ivan literally doesn't attack, and how Atiye can't aim. The little details in the entire game are just amazing. Another thing I loved gameplay wise was the language barrier. I felt the same confusion that I'm sure Rourke felt every single time we interacted with a citizen without an interpreter. It was a great touch to add. 

And of course I love the characters!!! My friend asked who my favourite character was and I genuinely couldn't choose a favourite. They're just all written so well, and they all feel genuine in that they have different attitudes towards things and motivations. I love how they bonded and how they interact with each other so much! And all their designs are amazing! Seeing their sprites fills me with joy. 

The art in this game is so beautiful and polished it's unreal!! Each environment is filled so much visually and it makes the cities and such feel unique! The little touches of houses being lived in is just amazing. The colours you chose for each environment were really beautiful as well. I could honestly stare at this game for days on end and be happy.

Anyways! This is getting long and rambly haha. Thank all of you so much for working hard on this! Long Gone Days was an absolutely phenomenal game, and I already know that after the final chapter is released I'm going to be thinking of this game for a while. 

Whoa, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review! I'm really glad you liked all the characters, that's always one of my biggest concerns, haha ♥ Really, thank you so much for this!

(+2)

I am in love with this game! The art is absolutely gorgeous; I love everything about it. How the cities and buildings are designed, the small details put in everything--I can't properly express how much I am in awe of it.

I am also very attached to every characters in the game; they are all lovable, intriguing, and so full of characters. I also love the bond they share with each other. It is so sweet and heartwarming to see how much they grow to care, depend on, and support each other. I am so excited to see more of them!

The story is also very intriguing. I can't wait to find out more about The Core and the Ravens. And I am totally digging the language barrier feature(?), it makes the experience even more immersive. The side quests are very fun to complete; communicating with the NPCs is one of my favourite things to do in this game.

Thank you very much for the wonderful work! I am so looking forward to the finale! Is there any Patreon or Ko-fi? I would love to support the developers more!

Wow, thank you so much for this! We will be revealing more about The Core in this last chapter, and we hope that answers most questions people might have!

We also appreciate your question about other ways to support us, but wholesome comments like these and telling others about the game is more than enough for us ( ˊᵕˋ )♡

(+1)

Got this in this game in the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality and I'm absolutely loving it! Gorgeous art, well-written characters, an engrossing story, and a lot of nice details in the setting (I was really happy about the Nick Drake poster in Ivan's room). The battle system is cool and I really like how your morale is affected by dialogue choices. Anyway, great stuff! Cannot recommend enough.

Thank you so much! I'm really happy to read that you enjoyed it, and I'm especially glad that you pointed out that poster, haha ♥

(+1)

I really enjoyed this game. Nice story and characters with a good message. I didn't realize it's not finished, but I will be (im)patiently waiting for the ending!

Thank you for your support!

(+1)

Really, really fun. I'm not usually one for turn-based games, but I genuinely enjoyed the story and the combat was manageable. No tedium without the random encounters, and I love the modern setting and how it's been translated into RPG format. Can't wait for the last chapter!

Thank you so much! We can't wait to release the full story ♥!

(+3)

Dude seriously I want to watch this as an anime hahaha!!!

(+1)

I've played through to the start of Day 4 today intending to play more than one game today, but instead I just got so sucked into this one! I really enjoy the art style and animations, and the colors are great. 

The combat works pretty well. I've found I'm able to carry my team through on mainly morale and skills rather than using very many non-healing items, which is pretty good because I ended up giving a lot of those away.

The (non-sniping) combat system itself reminds me very much of VATS from Fallout New Vegas mixed with Pokemon. It feels kind of weird to shoot someone (who isn't wearing a helmet!!) in the head with a gun - or really, anywhere with a gun - and not kill them or knock them out. The idea that you can evade a bullet also feels unusual to me conceptually. Neither of these things are unique in games though, so I can't really say it detracts. Maybe it's just that it gets highlighted by the combination of weaponry and the mechanics of how you use them in the game? It's unusual (or at least new-to-me) and caught me by surprise, but I have to say that it does work.

The game requires a decent amount of strategy and actually seems fairly well balanced in the sense that you can't just select random stuff and expect to get through fights by the early middle of the game. As well, NPCs with the same roles and/or art seem to fight with different strategies in different battles, which makes it feel varied.

I also feel really attached to my whole team by now, and the level design is SUPER SUPER GOOD. This must have taken so much work. I'm really impressed.

I got this game as part of the Racial Justice bundle.

Necesito decir también que me gusta mucho el uso de idiomas diferentes en el juego y el sistema de traducir. A veces cuando estaba jugando pensé 'SI TAN SOLO HUBIERA ESTUDIADO UNOS DE LOS IDIOMAS DE LONG GONE DAYS Y NO EL ESPAÑOL' pero no sabía que el estudio fue de Chile.

Tengo una pregunta desde esto para las diseñadores (si ustedes quieren hacer respuesta!): si el juego fue traducido a unos de los idiomas que son en el juego en el primer lugar, como el alemán, como funcionaría eso? Cuando los personajes hablarían inglés con texto en alemán, lo harían con la bandera del reino unido (o E.E.U.U)?

Gracias!

(+1)

(Voy a responder en español porque así me puedo explicar un poco mejor) Antes que todo, muchas gracias por tu comentario, me alegra mucho que lo hayas disfrutado! Además, muchas gracias por donar al bundle!

Sobre tu pregunta de los idiomas, esta es uno de los problemas que tuvimos al principio del desarrollo, y es por eso que decidimos agregar unos pequeños indicadores, como el texto en gris y cursiva cuando un personaje habla en su idioma nativo y no está siendo traducido, y también cuando aparece una bandera para representar el idioma del que está siendo traducido originalmente. Es posible que al principio sea un poco confuso, así que puede que hagamos otras modificaciones para versiones localizadas. Es algo que tenemos que evaluar.

(+5)

Can we get a GoFundMe so this can aswell be an actual anime.

(+1)

man this is amazing, cant wait for the last chapter to release.

(+2)

Thank yooou, we can't wait to finish it either!

:)

(1 edit) (+3)

I've been eyeing this game for so long and as soon as I saw it in the bundle I knew I had to buy immediately. I'm a sucker for military-sci-fi stories, so the worldbuilding of the Core especially was so intriguing and drew me in from the beginning! Though, I wish we could've see a bit more and have it developed a bit further. 

The cast of characters are so complex and lovable and to see them bond and work together was so sweet. I appreciate that it really focuses on their platonic relationships! The dilemmas and problems Rourke had to work through to to learn about the surface and become his own person was well done; it felt like I was a part of their world and along for the ride. 

The art is so visually appealing and detailed. The busts, animated CGs, and pixel sprites were so expressive I sometimes just found myself admiring the art more during the fights than actually attacking :').

Overall, a wonderful and beautiful experience. I'm looking forward to the finale!

(+1)

Thank you so much! I'm glad to read you enjoyed the story and its characters ♥ We'll be revealing more about The Core in the last chapter, we'll try our best to answer most questions about it within the game.

(+2)

RPG with a highly intriguing story about the dark side of military life. The mechanics also revolve more about military aspects and it actually is beautifully made and one of the most interesting Indie RPGs I've seen in a while. The combat has a themed touch, but is relatively straight forward, but its interesting how much more they built around that theme. Really interesting take, will need to check the story out once the game is finished to see where this goes. (Apparently they are working to release the final chapter soon) 4/5

More Racial Justice bundle impressions and ranking: https://itch.io/c/915453/quick-impressions-bundle-for-racial-justice

Thank you so much for your review! And yup, we can confirm we're working on the last chapter and preparing for our full release, though we haven't announced a date yet.

(+1)

I've kind of sung my praises for this game in the discord already but I've wanted to make this just a bit more public ig. I knew the moment I saw the page for this game that I was going to love it, I didn't expect it to become one of my favourite games of all time though. I booted it up and instantly messaged my friends on how beautiful it was and played. I fell in love with the story and the characters, latching onto Adair and expecting it to be like it's easy to tell this is my favourite. As I kept playing, I found myself exploring every nook and cranny and falling in love with every single character, even the villains! I'm having my friends who also bought the bundle to play this game as soon as they can and getting friends to buy it if they can later. It's a game that has nestled it's way into my heart on so many different factors that I can't even begin to explain. Every single character is beautifully created and the story and world is so immersive I found myself finishing all there was to offer in a little under 24 hours of taking breaks between sessions. It was a game I wanted to play whenever I had free time and even though I'm done with the chapters there are so far, I still find myself restarting for the sake of going through the entire game again. I know the full game will be amazing and excitedly await for it :3

Wow, thank you so much! I'm glad you have enjoyed it so much, it really means a lot to us! Also, huge thanks for telling your friends about it ♥

I honestly don't know what to say, I'm just really happy to read this, thanks for taking the time to write such kind words!

(1 edit) (+1)

This game is honestly amazing!! The political drama, the lovable and relatable characters, everything! There is so much detail put into every part of this game, the npc dialogue builds so much of the world, the animation of the characters when they speak, the way you went above and beyond with the CG whenever something important happens, the animation and music choices which added so much to the tension in battles,  the emotional complexity of the characters, the language barriers, the quests which make you feel like you love the people in the world just like Rourke does, the soundtrack, EVERYTHING. This game is truly, truly on my favorites list besides games like Persona 3 and Undertale. I absolutely cannot wait for the rest of the game to come out, but I don't want it to end! I wish I could ask you about all the influences you had when you made this game, I would absolutely love to ask! I really really don't want this game to end, I want to see more of Rourke and Adair for at least 30 more hours! I will definitely support you financially and in your games in the future, I recommended this game to all of my friends because I absolutely loved it!!!!! Me he hecho un fan grandisimo tuyo!! : DDD

(1 edit)

Thank you so much, this comment really made my day, especially that part about the sidequests ♥

Regarding influences, I don't think I could name just one, and there are other games that may have influenced me without me realizing it, but the games that inspired me the most to work on an RPG were Square's and ATLUS games. Another game that inspired me a lot was "Papers, Please", because back then I thought people wouldn't be interested in playing a game with simple graphics and loads of social criticism, and I'm glad I was wrong. Undertale also inspired me in a way because I wasn't sure if people were still interested in playing RPGs with minimalistic pixel art unless they were free, and once again, my predictions were wrong, oops.

(+1)

Me he hecho fan de tu videojuego :D. Tiene una gran historia, con personajes completos y un gran arte.

     Me gusta mucho la mecánica que hay torno al lenguaje, algo que parece común en nuetro contexto pero que ningun medio lo considera imperativo (como aquellas historias del espacio en donde todos hablan inglés, curiosamente). Y ese punto en la historia lo hace más diverso, mismo que se puede ver en los protagonistas.

     Protagonistas muy diversos. Igual sentí que fue excelente el personaje de Iván y cómo su ideología afecta su mecánica en el juego; es decir, al no luchay y apoyar al equipo. Por su historia y como es, mi personaje favorito es Lynn. Los antagonistas me parecen igual humanos, no son malos porque si, sino derivados de un contexto o creen hacer algo bien.

    Y la estética es de lo mejor, desde la animación en 2d como el pixel art :D. Sin contar la paleta de colores de cada lugar :D

    Deseo con muchas ganas el último capitulo :D. Muchas gracias :D

(+1)

Wow, muchísimas gracias por esta reseña! Sí, la verdad es que siempre me llamó la atención cuando en las películas los protagonistas viajaban a otro país y todos hablaban inglés (a veces con un "acento divertido"). Respeto mucho a las obras donde sí los mostraban hablando en su idioma nativo y era el protagonista el que debía tratar de adaptarse.

Me alegra mucho que lo hayas disfrutado y estamos ansiosos por poder lanzar el final de la historia!

Amazing, amazing, amazing! This game is such a pleasure to play, and the art just looks otherworldly, and all the characters are so compelling and lovable. Such a high tier A++ game...it really deserves more love! But let me tell you, it's been kinda wild being a Pole and playing this.

SPOILERS AHEAD. . .


Me at the beginning of the game: oooh, Poland...oh damn. fuck, what kinda stupid shit are we doing this time.

Me at the end of chapter 2: Oh, it's just everyone fucking us over. Got it.

(+1)

We're really glad to hear you enjoyed the game and its characters! Personally, I wouldn't dare use Poland as an enemy, so it should be safe in that regard.

(+1)

Oooh boy, this is so great. The story is very interesting, I'm waiting to see how this ends. Only one thing, maybe I would have used another battle theme

 

(+2)

Got it in the bundle and it catched my eye because of the nice pixelart and that it's an RPG. Been enjoying it alot, great game!

(+2)

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

(+1)

I've played the game a bit further and found a small kind of bug. When I killed Lt. Gareth he died from bleeding, after that I killed a remaining medic but Gareth was still there but invisible and only died if I shot him again. This isn't gamebreaking or anything but though I should let you know.

(+2)

Thanks for reporting it! That's a known bug (it happens when the medics are still alive so they accidentally heal the lieutenant even though he's supposed to be unconscious). We're working on a fix, and it should be included in our next update.
