World's Dawn developer let's play

Hey everyone! Wow, it's been a long time O.O

I wanted to drop by because I'm returning to World's Dawn three years after release (!) for a developer let's play. I'll be going through a good chunk of the game with a friend and sharing behind-the-scenes stories, community comments, and laughs aplenty. I thought some fellow RM folks might be interested in how the project came together and why certain decisions were made, that sort of thing.

I've been going through a bit of a rough patch lately, so this cozy, casual series has been a good way to decompress and stay connected with other players and developers. If you think you might enjoy it, there are a few episodes up on YouTube already and more to come very soon! And please do let me know what you think. I've never recorded anything like this before, so feedback is certainly welcome.

Thanks all! I really appreciate the support this community has given me over the years.

I'm happy you're still looking forward to summer! I promise it won't be too long.
I just want to start by telling you how much I love World's Dawn. I played my first play-through and decided to start another side and use cheat engine to edit the money value.

This happened after doing so and I can't exit out of it. Do you know what it is or how to exit it?

^ Ha, yes, I do know what that is! Those are dev tools I added to help me quickly adjust variables while I'm working on the game. Usually I have them set to a button, but when I released the game, instead of deleting them, I set them to appear when an impossible condition is met, in this case when the player has more than 99999999 money.

If you can use your cheat program to give yourself less than that amount, it should fix the problem. In future downloads I'll be sure to change those conditions to something actually impossible, even with cheats.

Just be warned other things might get screwed up if you change variables like that... who knows what weird, unfinished bits and pieces might you might find!
I love that you can choose to either date both women and men!! I love you for that!
The day has finally come!

I remember waiting all summer for it, hoping it would come out, checking everyday, and was very scared when you didn't post any updates all September, cause I thought that Sagitar died or something, but the glorious day is finally here!!

I know I may be over-reacting but I this game is one of the best free games I've ever played! (It's not complete so I guess I can't say that but, it's still awesome!)

Thank you so much for this awesome game!
Sorry to keep you waiting and worrying! I've been very busy in my personal life, but World's Dawn was always on my mind and I was working on it as much as I could. I'm so happy the summer season is finally ready for folks like you to play!

I really hope you enjoy it... be sure to let me know your thoughts! And thanks so much for your support. It truly means a lot to see how excited you are!
hello! i just started playing through the summer season with an old save of mine,and i think i found a bug?
for one of the new event's (i can't remember the actual name at the moment,my apologizes..it's the one with the lanterns though) i asked Sparrow to be my date and he said yes,but on the day of the festival Liam showed up instead

i'm not sure if i messed something up within my own save somehow,or if this IS a bug
i just figured it'd be better safe then sorry and let you know :)

amazing game by the way! i played the spring season multiple times,and the summer season has been very fun up to this point too~
Thank you for pointing this out to me! It's actually a semi-major thing, as it looks like your partner was getting reset before the actual festival, meaning you couldn't go with Sparrow. I've fixed the issue in the latest download, so you can grab that, carry over your save file, and it should work fine now! (Hopefully you have a save file from the day before the festival? If not, please let me know!)

Thanks so much for your support! I'm happy to hear you're enjoying the summer season so far.
unfortunately i don't have my save from the day before,but either way i'm just glad to hear it's been fixed :)
Thank you! <3
I may have found a bug. I started a new game and played through first day without seeing anything out of the ordinary. I was automatically kicked back to my house when it hit midnight.

I saved my game in slot 2 and then hit the sack. However, when I awoke on day 3 my EN had not recharged. It was exactly where it had been at the end of day 2.

Is this normal because I stayed up so late?
I am gonna make a profile to play as a guy character next. I already made one for a girl.
Aurora, that is indeed because you stayed up so late. It was actually something that was supposed to be in the spring season, but wasn't working right. I wanted to encourage players to actually make it home at the end of the day instead of just using the midnight warp.

Kuronekox, it's awesome you're playing through again! There aren't a ton of differences between playing as a girl and playing as a guy, but hopefully there's still a lot of replay value for you. Let me know how it goes!

Thanks for clearing that up Sagitar. After a crazy work week this game certainly is good for calming the nerves.
ugh...i hate my computer i really want to play this but....when i play it its always lagging Q.Q

That's great to hear! That's what I love about these kinds of games, myself.

darklee, I'm sorry to hear the game lags for you! I tried to do as much as I can (anti-lag scripts, event optimization) but there's still a lot going on in every map. I hope you can find a way to play!
Well I found my first problem with the summer season.

I finished the ocean festival (I do enjoy seeing the eligible townsfolk in their bathing suits.) and after I finished two rounds I left the beach and it told me to put on my clothes. I usually wear the default outfit because I don't really like the other one I have and I reallywish I could get more but I just don't know how. But I decided to put the other one on anyway, and then this happened.

Could anyone explain why my hair is changed? and how to change it back? I didn't even know hair was customizable in this game.

EDIT: And also by the way, When I won the ocean festival I got an error message saying that the audio file: "Victory1" is missing.

Is it normal that on the tenth day of Spring, I haven't managed to get more ribbons with any characters? I greet everyone everyday and I usually give 1 gift everyday to my favourite characters.
I've come across a bug. When I give Senah grapes she acts like I gave her Sizzling Stirfry.


I just finished the Ocean Festival. The swimming mini game was tougher than I expected.

However, my hair changed just like SP15's did after I left the festival. It looks exactly the same as the screenshots that were posted.

Looks like I found the same bug SP15 did.


I just realized I never received the Urban Skyscape I purchased from the Home Shopping Program. It should have arrived before the ball I bought for my dog but it never showed.

Also, the ball I bought for my dog doesn't show anywhere in the inventory.
has anyone else had it hang when you get to the last 2 people to meet (new spring version) or is it just me?

*** edit *** the way round this is to play the old spring version until you've net all villages the copy save file over.
