Some ideas for an update
by Aubrey, TDK, Samantha
Overall I love this game, the graphics are beautiful, and I love the idea. My whole family has started to play it. I have a few things that would improve the game as a whole. First, I wish that we could make different kinds of pies from the pie machine. So far you can only make apple pies, but it would be awesome if we could make chestnut pies, strawberry pies, blackberry pies, juniper pies, pot (meat) pies, and others. Second, I wish that the dog could guard our stuff when we pass out, and things fall out of our bags, I think that would be very handy. Third, I wish that you could train your dog to pull raccoon tails, that would be very helpful for completing tasks. Fourth, I with that we could give our dog treats, like we do the bird, I don’t want it to be mandatory, but more of a choice like it is for the bird. Fifth, I want to be able to send money home. We get letters from our father/mother and we get some sad stories about our family’s hard times. I would like there (if not already) to be a way to send chits or favors home. Especially since we get thousands of dollars from the crates and trading, i feel it’s only fair that we at least have the choice to give our family money.

This game is so fun!!! I named my character Mary, if you want to try to find me. It’s basically, when the USA was forming. You walk a long distance, to get to a campsite, not a big place where you can use the bathroom, or such. You never need to used the restroom! But it’s a great game, I have no glitches. But, I’m not very far into the game, actually. I haven’t even got to a town yet! But I heard they are fun. I luv how every time you come off of a camp site, it shows you, how many feet until you get they’re, how many feet you’ve been walking, and it tells you, something you get to do, at a town! Great game. I love how your clothes wear out, and you need food. You can cut down trees, and even throw a rock at a bunny, to kill it, to get food! Oh! You can trade! Other players might have some thing you need for your quest, and you can get rid of your stuff, and get money! Oh! And they’re is quest! This lady with birds in her hat, a bird that flys around with you, and she is so quick, to the next camp sight! You will find out, what she does, with my clues, and the games clues. You can also craft. Crafting is fun! You can make, clothes, a wood bird, tools, and so much more! Hope you think about getting this amazing game! Bye!
I love this game it is the only one of its kind! I just have some problems, there are way too many bugs. Not like the things that you find out on the trail, but really bad glitches. For one when I upgrade my house it finishes but still has the curtain on the outside or says it isn’t done. Also I’m in the middle of a glitch right now where I just crafted something and now it’s stuck in mid air and I can’t use it. ON THE OTHER HAND, it’s so much fun and honestly I can’t stop playing! Most games lose my attention after a day or so, but this has kept my attention for three whole days! It’s so great, every time you think you’ve seen it all something better happens! Also I wish we could send chits home, because my sister told me their suffering and all I could say back was “oh btw I’m so rich!”. Like what the heck, I can’t give them some of my fortune or something?!? I was also wondering if some of the “objectives” are even possible like find my partner or raise a family? One more thing before I go back to crossing the Prairie River, I wish you could friend people. Like if my real brother had a account I wish I could friend them or something. Anyway I got to go repair my shirt, so BYEEEEEE!
A Disappointing Mixed Bag....

I really wanted to give this five stars but the glitches are so bad. The game strategy is fun and could keep me playing for hours but every 15 minutes I get automatically backed out of the game. Also, the developers changed the stamina so your character immediately runs out of life. Like, two steps away from camp and your already in need of food. Finally, making your customers pay for game favors with real money cheapens the game. It's like I am playing one of those lame Facebook games or at a video gaming cafe. The dev team should allow people to tap into their screen money. I have nearly 86,000 chits accrued but can't purchase food in town or buy "favors" or gold with the game money.
UPDATE: After a few months of playing and really attempting to develop my town (nearly single-handedly, I might add), I finally accepted that this game is so poorly programmed, it isn't worth my time. I now get bumped out at each trail, about every 8 minutes, sometimes without completing the trail so I do the same trail over and over without going anywhere. Items have regularly disappear from my backpack and you still have to purchase gold with real dollars, not game money. In the end, it's an original and fun concept, just poorly designed in some ways and definitely poorly programmed that it's full of glitches. It has become exhausting and boring to play.
A great game - unbalanced, in favor of favours
A lovely time, I'm just frustrated by some things. My clothes frequently wear out, and I see that about other people, too, walking around naked. Every trip im saving up for pants, a shirt, a slinghsot, etc, and by the time I've got that something else has worn out. The
This makes the whole stat-boosts-come-from-clothes thing really frustrating. Yes, I gradually unlock better clothes, but I'm always making an effort to just keep my stats the same, and I'm not leveling up at all. Not to mention I can only do so much in one trip, because my bag is tiny - and whenever I unlock a new bag, it wears out before I know it....leaving me with no storage again! Just giving clothes a longer wear time, or JUST making storage expansions permanent. That one thing would help a lot. It's a really intriguing system, but the balance is off, and it's not fulfilling. Clearly, they want you to pay for favors, and the playstyle is clearly worse off for a free player.
All that said, this is a fun game. It hasn't been very buggy for me so far, and all this ^ would be a lot of fun to handle. It's exploration meets resource management meets a beautifully animated low-poly rpg, and it could really go places. I'm just constantly frustrated with the play style.
I love this game. I played it non stop when I first got it and got about 2km from Eden Falls. Started back up about 3 days ago and got to Eden falls. Didn’t know if the game would be good after that but oh my goodness. Building up the community in the end of the game felt so good to do. I would check in every 30 min or so just to help out a little then I’d get off. My community now is thriving, and it’s so much fun. I usually don’t care for mobile games because a lot of them make you do something quick then you have to wait like a day to actually be able to do something but with this game you can GRIND it and still have fun. The only reason I see someone not liking it is because they don’t like the challenge to it, or they don’t like building up a community in a game or something. In my opinion having to work with other people to build up a town, each of you with your own jobs and helping each other is the perfect game and if anyone know one on pc or Xbox plz tell me bc I love that so much. This game does that part really well. I can’t even think of any complaints besides the occasional crash. Great game. Easy 5 stars.
Enjoying the game
I really like this game, everything from its whole concept to the little details of gameplay that often surprise me. I do wish the developers would update more often and work on making the game better. I’ve read some reviews about what people think could make the game more fun, but I’d like to suggest ways that would make the game run smoother and more efficiently. 1) the chat room (saloon) tends to be glitchy, often lagging, sometimes deleting conversations, and overall not very type-friendly. Hoping the chat room can be run a little smoother. 2) if I decided to give another player something, I would have to leave it on a shared shelf, open for anyone to take. I don’t like that, since it likely to be stolen. I wonder if some sort of trade system could be set up? 3) crafting, one of my favorite parts of the game but so tedious! If a player has enough material to craft multiple copies of a certain item, why not let them choose how many they want to craft and then craft all at once? It’s more efficient AND it allows players to use their math skills (if they chose to preserve certain amounts of material)
Love it... buts needs some fixes!
First and foremost, I’m loving this game! If you have ever wanted to dive deep into what life was like decades ago, this is the game for you! For some it may be slow, as you are walking so progress takes a while, but I think that there is a more satisfactory payoff for finally gathering everything you need.
On the downside, I’m finding that the game doesn’t fit on my phone screen (iPhone XR), and therefore half of the time I can’t read, see, or grab things that I need to. Please fix this game developers! I am addicted already but am getting quickly frustrated by the game sizing problem! Another thing that I can personally would like to see changed is that when you are trying to gather a certain number of items for a quest, let’s say the feather quest for example, I am finding that there are very few quest items in sight and so I am having to go through 3+ camps, along with watching ads, in order to gain enough of the quest items to complete the quest. I would like to see either a rise in numbers of quest items you come across, or another way of gaining these items, outside of buying from the other travelers. If you guys can make these changes, I think that you game totally deserves a 5 star rating!
Ok Here's The TRUTH
So if you look at the picture in the description it says explore, trade and discover and settle & build. 1. Yes you you go on the top of mountains but there are others around you that have way more than you, are going faster and they seem to have a never ending stamina. 2. Yes you trade but only the person that trades the most gets a prize and that leaves others with the feeling to trade more valuable items that shouldn't be traded. 3. Basically the same as 1. 4. And probably the most disappointing! For example: I played this game nonstop for 2 months and was hoping to reach Edan falls, (sorry, forgot how to spell it) and I got there. I had been stolen from and watched as other players took the things I worked hard to get, and played for so long! And it said "pick an empty plot to buy" and I was like hmm WELL THERE ISN'T AN "EMPTY PLOT!" And I was forced to move onto the trail once again, with no destination and no more point in playing. It no longer showed the map also so I couldn't go back and see if a "empty plot" had opened even.
Thank you for reading this! And if you enjoy walking and watching people steal your things, (it's ok if you have a different opinion) then get this. If you don't I would advise you to not download this game. Thank you very much and have a wonderful day.😊
Good game, very buggy (for me?)
So, I've been playing this game for a while now (maybe a month or two?) and despite the amount of bugs I've encountered I still find it pretty engaging. It's definitely my current time-sink and the game progression keeps me engaged enough to continue playing.
I've had issues with the game crashing (both from regular play and watching the ads), throwing away items for me, and this weird issue of it heating up my phone to the point where I have to worry bc I can feel it through my fairly thick case. I felt prompted to write a review when I was forced (the camera wouldn't look away) to watch a raccoon walk the length of the trail I was on before it got to the edge of the map and continued to walk off into a white abyss.
While the premium items are kind of "pay-to-win", the game basically functions like a single-player game anyway (outside of the town mechanics, which are cooperative) so it doesn't affect anyone else. So they're more "pay to spend less time gathering stuff" And while they would be vastly more convenient, you don't have to buy them to enjoy the game (tho, do it if you can afford it since it keeps the game running, I assume lol).
