I'm not a huge mobile game guy, but I'm interested in seeing what this ends up looking like.
I won't judge it until it's actually in a playable state for the public to see, it could be cool.
Shovel Knight did the same exact thing (seriously, they have like, 2 simplified mobile-y spinoff games in the works) and no one complained
Let's see how this pans out...

This looks absolutely dreadful. If I were Klei I wouldn't have mentioned a word and let people just think it was a shoddy knockoff game. It would have been less embarrassing. I hope the licensing fee is decent enough to help fund actual quality games and content.

i hope this get a pc version aswell since mobile is the worse gaming platform and i don't really like awesome games such as this to be mobile exclusive, don't even have to make the pc version different, we would be able to play it anyway through a mobile emulator but i find kinda hard to make the emulator work

Well, it looks specifically like a Hamlet ripoff. One can only hope that licensing fee profits will be big enough to at least partially go towards Hamlet development while DST is being milked to fund current passion projects. Then I wouldn't really mind existence of this ripoff, just please don't bring stuff from it to DS and DST.

Would the devs of Newhome even have known about Hamlet at the time this got started?

Haha there's absolutely no way this game was in development for 2 years. They may have asked for the license at that time but this thing looks thrown together in the span of a few months. I mean look at the screenshots on their site there are weapons they made themselves that look like they were made in paint.

I know its in beta but it looks weird with the default weapons next to the new ones because they are in a different style. it would look better if they styleized the old weapons.

i mean just look at the chill spear compared to the ice staff.

Main reason why im not playing is because its on mobile, i would try it if it were on pc.

I saw that too and complained about it almost immediately, but looking at other screenshots I noticed existing DS/T content is getting re-drawn for this game, so I'm not too doubtful that they're eventually getting to all these items to make them fit this game's style

 Notice the spider, berry bush, and Moose/Goose.

You're going to want to message them on facebook or the feedback form. We aren't operating the game so we won't be able to answer your question on this, sorry.

 



Having the same problem with my email. Said "please provide your correct APPLE ID" and I'm like, this IS my apple id.

Edit Got it done, and got the confirmation e-mail.
