Other Comments

There are two things you should know before playing. The first thing is that the game cannot be saved. Closing the app Will erase your progress. Therefore, when you start the game, you must finish the game. Secondly, you cannot select the type of characters you wish to play with. They are generated via the generate story button. Every time you double tap the generate story button, you must swipe back to the top to see the back stories of the three champions that you will be playing with. You can always hit the generate story button as many times you like until you are satisfied with your characters. Once you are satisfied, just double tap the continue button.

Hi all,

I am the developer responsible for Treacherous Trail - thank you for playing my game! I am new to this community so please feel free to provide any feedback on how I can make the game more accessible. I am also happy to answer any questions here.

Sorry to hear the game crashed on you! I will try and replicate so I can fix. Do you remember what scenario occurred before the game crashed? Had any characters died?

hi there, and wellcome!
nice to see another developer!
for the crash, I've tryed to reproduce it, but now its working nicely, no crash.
the things I remember are, I was around 3 or 4 miles from the haunted woods' exit, then when I hit continue the game just crash and send me back to the homescreen.
also, all of my party members still alive.
maybe something wrong with my phone that time... haha.
sorry my english anyways.

Hi, the game crashes after playing it for a while, like 4 or 5 times, tipicly it crashes then. It has crashed about 3 times in total. ON another note, great game, I've enjoyed it a lot. Still trying to beat my high score haha. Thanks for making this game accessible for the blind community.

Thank you for the feedback and glad to hear you like it!

This is super helpful and I can guess what could be causing it. I'll do some testing and hopefully can upload a new version by this weekend with the crashes fixed. I'll update here once I have a fix in place.

The plan is to eventually release more scenarios for the current paths to make each game more varied, and then to release two additional paths. I would also likely add a couple of new job classes and of course new characters to recruit.

I do have a day job so I'm programming in my spare time and working on a new game. A major content update will take some time but it is definitely something I want to do.

Hi all,

I've submitted the update to apple last night which should take care of the crashes so be on the look out for Version 2.0 to be released in the app store over the next few days.

Some other updates: I've balanced the game by adding an element of speed, where you gain more points for beating the game quicker. This makes the walking stick a lot more useful. I've also added a maximum food limit, otherwise the fishing mini game could be abused. Whisky gives more morale after camping now, so you have a few different avenues to try and optimize your score.

Additionally, the team that earns your high score is 'memorialized' in the Trophy Room. I'll post again here once the new version is up. Thanks again for playing!

Hi all,

Just a quick note that the latest version (2.3.0) should now be in the app store, with bugs fixed and no crash reports so far. If you do encounter any issues, please post here and I'll fix as a priority.

Otherwise, enjoy the game and leave a review in the app store for me if you like it!

Hi,
I was not able to continue the game when I was playingg. One of my characters did not make it during the second trail. I was able to continue the game when it mentioned my character died when it appeared the first time. Toward the end of the dessert trail the message of my character died appeared a second time. The continue button did not work on the second time. I had to quit the game.

I am using an iPhone 6 Plus running IOS 11.02.
Thanks,
JoAnn

Hi, thank you for the game! My high score is 600 something and I'm still trying to beat it.
But I want to ask something, can you please make us to do more choices? I read, I press continue, I read, I press continue again, sometimes it gets boring for me. Can you please add more fights or choices? thank you again!
