While it's a wonderful game I wish it had a save function since its extremely prone to crashing. This is being typed out after I just lost all my progress due to a crash. Otherwise wonderful game!

Please add a save function!!! What a wonderful game!!

This game was so fun, I played for hours! Only thing is I wish there was a save. Prior to downloading, I played on the web and the game would occasionally crash which caused me to lose my data and become underwhelmed. Overall really great game, would love to see you guys add on to it!! Can't wait to see more from you guys! :)

One thing only i want to savee my progresssss

I've been really loving this game since I played quite a while ago, the gameplay and overall look is so fun and I love the concept. 

Keep up the good work!


I made an account just so I can say how much I enjoyed this game! It had the right balance of task management and relaxing atmosphere for me. 

I had some crashing issues with the PostJam version as other people have mentioned. Eventually was able to get a successful session in on my third attempt and meet the beautiful queen. To anyone reading, there is no save function in this version but you can pause with the menu screen. My sessions were about 2-3 hours.

I hope you find time to revisit this (and maybe develop a full version please) in the future! I'll enjoy Dome Keeper in the meantime!


Thank you, appreciated! Sorry about the buggy state, i wish we had the time to do a bug hunting round. But we got our hands more than full right now. My hopes are the same though, that we'll be able to expand this and make it a full game :)




who wants a save function


at least an auto save to allow reloading after a crash


More fun than I expected :)

for some reson in web the audio is really glitchy


Can you please allow us to save the game i hate restarting

I concur, it is really annoying getting far in the game just to have to restart and pray get good birds again.

exactly i had like 5k and when i entered it went to 0


It took about 2-3 hours but I finished it :)

When I moved a nest I accidentally click on wrong nest so I press Q because I thought it will cancel but after that the nest I choose disappear, when I check the bird I see it still in the desk but I can't see or interact with the bird, I try to use the "move a bird" again and click all over the house but still nothing.

Hope you understand what I'm saying because I tried to use google translate but it just keeps getting worse :/


This is *such* a sweet game! But it crashed for me at around day 14 :(

I still had so much fun though!! Hard recommend


there are like a bunch of bugs like when you try to remove a birds nest sometimes the game completly freezes but overall amazing jam! i would love to see this turned into a full fledged game

bro i think the game crashed

still an amazing game pls fix bug i would love to finish the game


It's so fun ;-; please, please please can you make a save file option, even just a .txt for the desktop? The game seems to crash about a month in and I really wanna beat it!



I LOVED it!! I haven't been so captivated by a game in a while and I just had to finish it! Also the graphics and the lil birds were all so cute


Really cute game. Love the art! Took a few minutes to figure out the controls, so some tutorial pop-ups would be nice. I'd also love to be able to save and come back to this. Without a save function, I don't think I would play it again. Lots of potential here, though!


Just give us a save function and make it available on Mac eventually pretty pls. There are other bugs to this game which have been mentioned, none that crucial. I do think all payments and penalties should auto accept at the end of the day though because you can just never accept penalties if you want too. :> Just here for constructive criticism.


why there is not a save function??? it most likely takes fairly some time to finish it not everyone has the free time to finish it in one sitting? this is so weird I truly don't understand the logic behind it


Because this is a game jam game ;)
Implementing a save is way beyond scope of that and takes some days to do.


incredible game for a jam. Great job, man.

This game is great however there is a bug with the moving nests function. When I move a raven's nest onto another raven's nest (on accident of course) the game says the raven is still there but it is not visible or usable anymore. Overall awesome job though! I love this game!


I really love the game! But the duration calculations are unclear. If I give a 150 km letter to the starting raven with a speed of 95 km/h, I would expect the time to delivery to be a little over 1.5 hours. Instead, it's 3.1 hours and I haven't the faintest idea why.

This makes it a little hard to make sure I'm picking the right birds for the job which is rather distressing -- Queen Isadora has demanded the best of avian logistics after all!


Returning distance too, if distance from post office to destination is 150 km, then the total distance for a trip would be 300 km, the 3.1 hour check out for a raven with speed of 95 km/h.


Mac compatiability please?


Please add a save function! Other than that its a pretty good game.


Great game!  I love the artwork and the game flow.  And surprisingly addictive.

Unfortunately, it seems the game crashes around day 35, both in the browser version (Chrome) as well as the one that can be downloaded (Windows 11).  I'd love to be able to actually finish the game sometime.


I've noticed this to


This is so easily addictive in the best way!! The economy is so harsh but in like a fun, makes you focus sort of way. Also actually beautiful visuals and music too


I love the artstyle so much honestly 


aaa the penalties are so harsh @-@ addictive game though


phew, I finished the game xD I had a ton of fun! Had to restart a few times because I'd get stuck in a cycle of debt though.... great job!!


This game is simple but super fun! :D


The game is truly amazing. It took me a bit to figure it out, but now I love it.


I really piked this game, however, could you please make a downloadble version for mobile?


Included Ravenhaul as part of a compilation on Ludum Dare 53 at 54:21. The playthrough was 2 and a half hours, so it needed a bit of trimming!

I love this! I would love if this one day becomes as a bigger game where you can upgrade your house etc. I could just keep on playing this. This has potential. 

Love the art and the gameplay, i wish this could be longer <3


I loved this game so much, I never wanted it to end.  The vibes are very chill and I love the gentle progression - learning the rhythms of a day: evaluating contracts, getting the express or long haul deliveries out first, feeling a little lonely as all the little birds are gone on their journeys.  An absolute delight and a hidden gem!

I'm scared to find out, but what happens when you don't have any food left to feed the birds?


It will automatically buy kernels at whatever the market cost is at the end of the day. Your birds will stay fed, but you'll go into debt ^^;


Alright, thank you


This game is amazing! However, you can simply ignore penalties and game crashes when you accept too much letters. Love this game!


I love this game, but I can't move nests bigger than 1 square. It's not super terrible, but it does bug me, because I can't get more than 1 stork.

The bird has to be in the nest to move it


good job guys, this game is so relaxing and fun<3


Loving the game!
