Off to a solid start. Literally come across this by accident but I’m glad. Too bad I can’t hunt the hunter yet but the system works pretty well for traits. Games where u are reborn in a new world are my favourites.

Honestly? Sounds really interesting and can’t wait to see the story develop.
Also, will we be able to reach the apex of monsters? like feed-on-celestial-dragons kind of apex? (maybe bc of that hint that there’s a rank above S) lol If it’s too soon to tell, I completely understand, just excited for all of the possibilities. Great job, i’m already invested lol

I enjoyed the demo, but please excuse my “um ahcktually :nerd_face:”, but Salamanders, which are amphibians, do not have scales. Lizards, which are reptiles, do.

Anyways other than that it was great!

Really, really enjoyed this one! As a lover of “So I’m a Spider So What?” this was really fun to get into. I’m hoping there’s a lot more to come because we need more IFs where we get isekaied and turned into monsters o7

This is great! I love the uniqueness of it, and I’m quite partial to dragons myself lol

Looking forward to more!

The only thing I would say is that after fighting the rat when it asks you if you want to view you status again, if you select yes it displays traits you don’t have. I chose scales II but it still gave me claws II and teeth II in that status display. Is that a bug?

@Beastup Well, I liked it. Hope we get to see more. And can I suggest adding the purple eye color? And also about those starting races, can you tell me what they are or at least what you’re considering for them?

aha! i love system genre lol

Glad you enjoyed it, as for your other question, all I can say is that reaching the apex of the food chain is indeed feasible, provided you make shrewd choices :slightly_smiling_face:.

Yes, that’s a possible implementation. For now, I have some ideas to include at least two more starting species.

I’m planning to support this game until the end, so no worries. There will also be plenty of interactions moving forward, with more opportunities for the MC to choose between gaining fame or acting in the shadows. :smile:

I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the novel, and there’s certainly plenty more to come! :pray::smile:

During the initial stages of game development, I delved into some research, and it’s true that salamanders typically lack scales. However, the species you begin with in the game is a unique hybrid, blending salamander and scaly lizard characteristics. This blend is why your character starts with both scales and the ability to regenerate. :blush::lizard::fire:

Thank you for your positive feedback, and I’m happy to confirm that I’ll be adding purple eye color in the near future, thanks for your suggestion. Regarding your other inquiries, I’m currently contemplating the addition of two more species, one being mammalian and the other feline. However, I’m still in the process of considering this.

Thank you for your support! In the second trait list, you’ll encounter three traits, and these are the ones you didn’t select in the previous trait list. For instance, if you chose Scales II, you’ll have the opportunity to pick one of the other three available traits.
