This is the official thread for Someday v0.00. This version is just a look into how the game is supposed to be - five effects and 12 worlds (no deeper locations at the moment) waiting for you!
You play as Itsuki (樹, lit. tree but also can be rendered as いつき), a boy who is trapped in a low-budget apartment because of a typhoon. Instead of a balcony you have a window, and interacting with your bed grants you access to the dream world. Press 9 to cover your eyes and wake up. You can save using the computer. Enjoy this humble 0.00!
Note: The worlds, music and sounds may vary in later versions of the game.

If I may, i would like to offer some opinions on this. First of all, the craftmanship is impressive. No bugs that I found, no graphical misfits. The sound is nice and so are the graphics (although the main character is rather plain).
There are problems, though. The problem is that there is just nothing that really makes me want to keep exploring. I think you focused too much on making lots of worlds, and then put nothing in them. It's not really a problem for a v0.00 but a suggestion from me would be to keep adding stuff to do rather than new worlds in the next version.
Indeed, there's not much to do and few detail, but in v0.01 I was also going to add more NPCs and a use for the wrench effect (a.k.a. the weapon).
Let's say that v0.00 focuses more on the ambience of the whole game, just to know if I'm doing it right before getting into actual event programming.
It's ok, but nothing really sticks out. It feels a little bland. Nice music though.
Okay so maybe not so many NPCs, but definitely not as few as in v0.00.
I'm working one last secret feature. After that and adding some detail to the Mountains, v0.01 may come out this week.
Not something too big. I already finished it, by the way. I'm impressed no one put in a YN fangame yet, it's so easy to program!
Don't worry, v0.01 is 95% finished, you'll see soon.
By the way, I solved the system2c.png problem many people had. You won't need to search for that file anymore because it's included in the game.
v0.01 is ready and is currently being bugtested before release!
Here's the link for v0.01!http://www.mediafire.com/?rdpf3v4svu9gfl5
Now it contains a readme, and you no longer need the RTP.
Just kidding, here's the real thing:http://www.mediafire.com/?evnm6v360vd9k2ftotally not a bugfix
It's better, more events and stuff. But I would like to see even more. It still doesn't feel quite right. The worlds still feels kinda… dead?
You're getting there though, good job.
Thank you! It's good to know Someday is taking a good direction.
Anyway, now is when I start the hiatus. September exams are here, so see you someday
This is cute. It's new, pretty graphics and it's music, but seriously, dude. DIM THE GRAPHICS. It's nice, but while I'm playing it my eyes are either straining against the vivid colors or I'm straining to see past the moving background (especially in that orange-pink world! >:O)
It's curious, the more I develop, the more I dim my graphics. You should have seen v0.00 when it was halfway done. The lava world was hideous.
For 0.02 I think I will change the doodle background, it's too white, it doesn't look like paper. I may dim the mountains too, it's a foggy world so it doesn't make sense that they are so bright.
About the orange-pink world… sorry, that one is meant to be trippy. I may change it too though, it just doesn't look profesional.
It just reminded me of sickmind, that's all….I have a feeling that Itsuki has dyslexia… xD
Sickmind? Wow! I didn't know the graphics were SO bright. Because Sickmind has some of the biggest parallax problems- oh wait, now I can relate. The alphanumeric world kinda looks like that sharp colours world from sickmind.Isn't it curious that despite being in hiatus I'm the guy who makes more posts per day in /fg/?
Oh, don't worry, bro. I post in /fg/ almost every day and make up excuses why not to work on my own fangame, too. It's not all that uncommon.
So yeah. I also have a question. is there somewhere I can contact you? Like a Tumblr, Gmail, something you'll answer?
Version 0.02 is out!http://www.sendspace.com/file/8jcd6z
6 new effects + instructions, two new events, more locations to explore…
I really like this game! :D
Here's version 0.03!http://www.sendspace.com/file/c82xwd
3 new effects, more events, 2 new menu schemes, more extras, and a new feature: Feats! These are little achievements that you get while playing the game, getting them is not required, but if you don't, you may miss some good stuff…
Hurray! This fangame is cute~
Was this thread autosaged or something? It never gets to the top, no matter how much I post. I think it would be nice to notify me about this, especially since I didn't do anything to make this thread stay at freaking page 3 all the time.
Your thread isn't the only one with this problem. I believe it's an issue here.
In-Topic, what is he doing here?
That is a glitch happening when porting your 0.02 save files to 0.03. Those NPCs are not supposed to show up.
I'm going to upload 0.03a as soon as possible, this bug is very embarrassing. I use those NPCs for debugging.
Here is the first bugfix.http://www.sendspace.com/file/gbxuc9
Old file was deleted. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Here's a Mediafire link to v0.03b.
Pic is one of the new areas coming in v0.04. Also Itsuki can dive.
Good news! Shirleycrow has offered to translate Someday 0.04 to Chinese when it comes out! She's the same person who translated Ib and The Looking Glass. When does 0.04 come out? Maybe in two weeks or so, it depends on my free time…
I have good news and bad news.
The good news? v0.04 is out. http://www.mediafire.com/?17pnh16jl7tv6ax
The bad news? I'm leaving /fg/. It's broken, the threads don't go back to the top anymore. Also most fangame players are in other forums or sites.
If you want to contact me, my devblog is here http://ayosu-itsuki.tumblr.com/
Installing Gentoo should solve that
Shut up, balthasar. xD
Now that /fg/ is active again, I'm going to test this thread still bumps.
It's been a long time since v0.05 was released. http://www.mediafire.com/download/hps6s1w5thu17ht/Someday_v0.05.rar
21 effects + instructions, 21 feats.
Pic is one of the new areas.
It's funny how no one notices Someday is actually PERiod with another name and a more professional look. I even kept the same protagonist, and for v0.00 his design was the same. But that was a year and a half ago… anyway I'm glad I moved on and continued.
>>8182 Oh boy, here we go~
But I don't hate Ubuu as a whole. If I did, I would have stopped posting completely.
But hey! At least you're passing by. So welcome, I guess.
Version 0.06 is out.http://www.mediafire.com/download/7djk7q7pqff83yi/Someday_v0.06.rar
It has 22 effects plus instructions and 3 new feats.
Have a 2spooky monster.
Spanish translation of v0.06 since somebody asked on Tumblr.http://www.mediafire.com/download/pk5j5xm795y5ty9
It has no special characters (Ñ ´ ¿ ! ¨) because they usually get messed up for some people.
In other news, I'd say 0.07 is halfway done.
