One of the gameplay on YouTube which I had the opportunity to see while the content creator was streaming on Twitch:


I made this videogame by myself, taking care of the artistic part and the development part. This game is the result of months of work, following the dream of making a game that can tell a story through art and coding.

Thank you so much! I’ll be sure to provide soon new contents!

Thank you so much!! You are so kind!

I LOVE THIS GAME

I'm glad you loved it!

Beat one ending of the game but did not know what collecting the coins or chest did.

(+3)

Hi! Thank you for playing! One of the old version of the game had the purpose to keep an high score of the coins and chest you collect. But I mentioned in a Devlog that I'm working on a major update where the coins will be useful to buy skins and more useful objects for the character! I'm working on it everyday, I'll keep y'all updated!

(+1)

Ok, that makes sense. I enjoyed your artwork.

Thank you!

Thank you! 🥰

You're welcome! Thank YOU for playing the game!

So, I saw the game on reddit, I checked it out and I don’t regret it. It's a beautiful game, it's very relaxing and the graphics are great. Your drawings adapt perfectly to the environment and the story. The story was very moving, but the game itself is short, I finished it in about 20-30 minutes. I have read that there will be updates and I hope so, because I would like to play with it again, I love theo the dog. Also, again, I love your art!

(+4)

Thank you! I appreciate it!

Tried Oak Hill as referenced from reddit. One suggestion is to move on to the next dialog entry at the click of a button or the space bar. I did want to read the dialog but it's annoying to have to wait for a timeout.

Personally, I despise rogue -- why spend my gaming time repeating what I've already done? I got a ways into the game and then died and was kicked back to the beginning. I did not continue. At least you could mention it was perma-death in the description of the game.

(+5)

Hi! First of all, thank you so much for your suggestions! As mentioned before, I'm working on fix some of these "problems" with an huge update and, since it's my first work, I still have a lot to learn! Also,when you die it just make you restart the level, not the entire game. But I will add checkpoints in the future! And it's mentioned that the dialogues advance on their own, I wanted to add a "continue button" but I wasn't sure. Now that I know that, for some people, it may be annoying I'll surely add it in the future update! Also thank you so much for playing, I hope you had some fun and you liked the story! If you have any other suggestions, feel free to share them here! Have a wonderfuld day!

(+5)

Thank you for the experience. I really enjoyed it, I loved the art and the narrative, LOVED IT.

Hi! Thank you so much! You are so kind!

(+6)

WOW! I loved this game, I cried at the end. I wasn't expecting this ending, and I loved it. I unlocked the good ending, now I will play it again to see what other endings I missed. Also I love the drawing style and the graphics, and the music was also very nice and relaxing. Hope there will be new contents in the future

(+5)

Thank you for the support, I appreciate it! Anyway I'm working on a major update! I don't know when yet, but there will be surely some new contents in the future (and improvements as well)!

(+1)

This looks like a beautiful game! Looking forward to playing it. The current state of the .rar file does not open and displays the following error: "Oak Hill for Windows (Bug Fixed).rar: The archive is either in unknown format or damaged". I'll check back later to see if there's a new .rar file. Hoping to enjoy the adventures of Theo the dog. Thank you!

(+4)

Hi! Thank you so much for your support! Anyway, that's strange, on my computer works. I'm going to upload it again anyway, if you go through any other problems please let me know! Thank you again and I wish you a beautiful day!

(+1)

Thanks for uploading again. Yes, strange indeed. Opening .rar files is a straight forward process. I do it all the time. Still not able to open the file, getting the same error. Tried to repair the file too. Send me a PM if you'd like to chat and test it out with me. Cheers!

(+2)

I'm gonna upload another file, that isn't related with the other two (for Windows and for macOS), maybe this time it will work!

(+1)

Hi! I just uploaded a new .rar file that shouldn't give you any errors now, since I tested it on different computers, if there's a chance that you go throught any other problems, contact me again, I'll be here to help you and to make sure that you can enjoy the game! Thank you for the feedback and for your support!

(+1)

Still no luck unpacking the rar. Here's a Dropbox link with the rar file I downloaded. Maybe it's getting corrupted on my end when it's downloaded. Are you able to open this with no issues on your end? I've made a screenshot for you of the error. As a suggestion, can you drop the game files here (not compressed with rar) so I can run the game. As you can see, I'm already planning to add this game to my Steam library as I've already customized a game cover specifically for Oak Hill. Yes, I'm quite committed to getting this game up and running. Thanks for your help. :-)

(+1)

Hi! Otherwise you can install the official app of Itch.io and install the game, unfortunately I can't upload it decompressed 'cause it has important files that help the game to run. But I'm gonna give a look to your .rar file right now! Also thank you for your determination!

(+1)

Hi again! I unzipped your file on two computers, and I also send it to a friend to see if it works on his pc as well. And it does! It actually works, so at this point I think it may be a problem related (maybe) of your anti-virus or something like this. So I suggest you to install the game on the Itch.io official app, otherwise (if you want it in your Steam library) to wait until I'll be able to publish the game on Steam as well. Thank you so much for your support, your kindness and your will to try my work. Also your cover for your library looks amazing! Thank you!

Use latest version of winrar.

Old versions of winrar can show errors on archives made with the latest version..

(+7)

Exactly! Thanks for your suggestion and help, it will be useful for whose may have problems with the .rar file!

(+1)

You nailed it... brilliant deduction... mad troubleshooting skills! Thanks for the tip. I installed the latest version of WinRAR and was able to extract the file. Hopefully, this thread will help others who encounter the same issue.
