Awesome app 5/5!
Log in with itch.io to leave a comment.
Hi! I love this app! So far it's the best focusing app I have ever found! Thank you!
The dimensions of the app happened to be a little off on my laptop (my resolution is 1920 x 1080). I manually change it, but every time I open the app I have to change it again. I have no idea if there is any way for me to sort of "save" the fixed resolution of the app or not.
Have a good day!
When I try and run the Mac version, I get a message saying "The application “Virtual Cottage” can’t be opened.".
I'm running Catalina 10.15.7, not the most up to date, but not super old either.
Any chance of the project going open source? I know the scope itself is quite small, but still, I want to check it out.
Oh and some really small fixes:
· In the itch.io page, the screenshots have the bar at the top, with ShareX you can screenshot the window without that and many more things.
· When the music is not activated, make the text fade away by changing it's color alpha on the font color settings.
I just tried this. The scene is motivational. The evolving ambience is mesmerizing. I set the timer and went to work on a project. The experience was amazing until the sound went off. Could I get a less alarming tone like a gong? Thanks.
Haha sorry about that! We want to add different options for the end tone in the future, a gong is a nice idea!
also i love the music
i love this so much! it would be cool if u added a to do list or notes feature too.. :PPP<333
We were planning a little list which allows you to write doen 3-5 tasks and cross them off. We just need to rework the UI before this :)
I have some genuine bad focus, and the horrible tomato layouts online only make me want to do things less, so this a great option! Thanks for making it!
Amazing program! I love it so much. The visuals, UI design, music selection, atmospheric sounds, and functionality of it all is absolutely gorgeous. Also the fact that this is your first project with Godot? Astonishing. Can't wait to check out more of your work ^w^!
Hope you're having a lovely day <3
Thanks so much! My partner and me were using Clickteam Fusion before, but the jump from Visual Scripting to using coding in godot was difficult.
That's why I mainly did a project that utilized the ui components like buttons and such :) But it's getting more complex with every update so let's see how far I can take this.
can you customize your character?
So cool! thanks
This's so amazing!Now i can do my work sessions without any problems with time.
This is extremely helpful!
For some reason it keeps saying it's damaged for Mac? I've tried >show package contents and >Contents/MacOs as another comment suggested, but it's still showing up as damaged.
Mac is unfortunately always our problem child >.<. We just uploaded a new version on here, let us know if this works. If it doesn't the game is also on steam for free with a working Mac version.
Wow! I love this! This is awesome and the music is mesmerizing.
Adorable, sweet and relaxing. Congratulations, immediately put in the collection and we will use it while we develop our Hexia.
It's a really nice concept, and I'm so happy it has a Mac version now! Unfortunately though, I can't run it. It says the app is damaged :c
What :0 oh no. The game is also on steam for mac, could you check if it works there?
So far we've had no report of the mac version not working. We'll investigate :)
the steam version for Mac works perfectly, but the Mac version download from itch page doesn't work :/
One user here on itch wrote "try moving the app to a different folder and then running it" maybe that will help you?
It works on our Mac so we're a bit lost on where to troubleshoot :D
Hi there! Actually, today I managed to get the itch.io version working on Mac!
If you run the executable file in >show package contents and then Contents/MacOS (just for the first time) then it will work forever :)
probably 32 bit
Thanks for this project, it's working well on fedora.
It's a really nice concept, I want to try to make one with my own environment now !
It does not work for Mac
It says for me that the app is damaged or its just me
We got it running on our MAC. Since we only have one test device, it's hard for us to verify.
try moving the app to a different folder and then running it
I can confirm that it works on Ubuntu.
Will it work on 32 bit?
Amo esto y el hecho que lo hayas programado con Godot me sorprende mas, es un maravilloso trabajo. Es como si hubieran juntando lo que me gusta y lo que necesito. ¡Gracias!
just downloaded the linux version, have to chmod +x for it to be executable (idk if this is common practice for linux releases? didn't see anyone else mentioning this in the comments) but its not too much of a hassle anyway :)
its very cute n chill, hopefully this will help my brain focus on what it needs! time to get working!
chmod +x is necessary any time Linux programs are distributed in .zip files. Zip doesn't save any of the system flags that Linux uses to determine if something's a usable program, so the system assumes it's not unless it tell you.
This could be fixed if the program were re-compressed into a .tar.gz archive instead of a zip archive, but it'd have to be done on a Linux [or Mac I guess?] computer because Windows doesn't track those tags either (so they would still not exist). It's not really a big deal, but it might be good if DU&I mentioned it in the readme.
Sorry for long response you didn't really ask for, I just thought this might be useful information for someone.
ooh thanks for the info! (probably learned about this in school but has completely forgotten about it haha, appreciate this lil refresher! :> )
When I package up games, I've had good luck zipping a game with the Windows built-in folder right-click "Send To => Compressed (zipped) Folder". It marks everything in the folder as executable when Linux and Mac users unzip it. Third-party archivers like WinZip or 7-Zip usually don't mark files as executable, and require the permissions fix with chmod u+x.
thanks for the info! we'll add that to the description!
absolutely wonderful. thank you!
Can you say what game engine did you use?
This is great, but the music quality sounds... distorted? Like it's underwater? Is that supposed to be how it is?
It doesn't sound like it's distorted for me, maybe it's just the headphones you're using
This helps me so much with my homework and projects, its like magic. Normally videos from YT of Lo - Fi doesn't make me focus on my homework, but this app its different.
The awesome tool i love the underlying idea, some things that could be added maybe:
1 History log of activities for example
(5:30pm) programming :30 min,
(6:00pm) reading 1 hr,
(7:00pm) drawing 1 hr etc
2 An activity timer that starts from 0 sec and stops when you stop it. In some cases, you don’t know how long something will take.
For example, you could start an activity “Programming” and stop it whenever, which for example could be at 53 min or any other time.
I love this to bits, but I shan't lie, could do with some more expansive songs choices. I have a pretty large backlog of chill jazzier stuff if you'd like some tracks to expand on the tracklisting?
we'll definitely expand the track list. We are in touch with the creators of these songs, asking for permission to use them in this free tool, so confirmation takes a while :)
Nice, I love it!
Works great on Linux, if you want any suggestions, I would recommend making a random song selection so that when you deactivate the music and activate again it starts with a new song.
Great work! <3
Hey! Yeah reworking the music player will be the next big update that we'll work on this weekend :)
This helps me focus on my work more! Thank you so much :D
amazing app. one suggestion is a pause button since I don't wanna keep closing and opening it
haha yeah! Since this is my first project and I didn't know how to programm that i always "alt f4"rd the programm :'D
Will be working on a pause- and end- timer
I love so much the cat!!! its so cute!!!!
Works very nice on Linux (openSUSE Leap 15.2)
This is amazing! The laptop with shifting lights is an amazing feature! Any way to possibly put in our own music?
At the moment our quickfix will be to add a music player with shuffle and add more songs.
But unfortunately we are both new to programming and have no idea how to add such a feature.
No plan for the mac version? (sob)
yea im kinda crying as well u_u
Thanks for the reply. I really love the concept. 💕
We might get a mac soon! :D:D
However that does not mean that a build will be there quickly. We are already scared because of the building process... but wel'll see! :)
