Great job ^-^

Oh my god!
This game is gorgeous!

There is nothing about this game that wasn't gorgeous!
The game play was excellent!
The game looked beautiful!
The music and sounds helped immerse me into the world!
The story was simple, but with a couple of nice things that no one would've been able to guess.

I also didn't run into any bugs at all.

I rate this game a 5/5!

This game deserves it!

So far I'm enjoying it ^^ It's a very cute story, and I like the puzzles so far, but my one gripe is that some of the art blends in too much for me to easily tell what's going on. 

Like the title screen (specifically the menu selections. They're a very light gray on white), and when you have a spell active (most of the areas are a bright gray, or almost plain white, and the "you have an active spell" thing above the character is a very transparent white).

Nevertheless, I'm enjoying the story so far, and I'm currently covering it for my channel. I hope it helps, and that my feedback here wasn't too harsh!

Oh thank you so much! We enjoy watching LPs and will definitely take a look at yours <o<!! 

All feedback is welcome and appreciated and honestly the brightness balance is something we were kind of worried about. We will edit the spell overlays in the future and maybe even the white tiles of the first town (they're very bright compared to all the other towns!) so it's good that you brought it up!

Just taking a quick glance I see that you're running the first version of the game and if you want to experience a less buggy version you can get it from here https://rpgmaker.net/games/10160/downloads/9463/ !  You can just drag the save file to the new game folder to continue where you left off~Thank you for playing Paletta <3

Wrote about this!

Thank you so much! We're glad you enjoyed Paletta!

I absolutely loved playing this game. I don't want to say too much because I really think the best way to experience this game is to set aside an hour of your time and play it yourself!

I love it. 

That's good to hear! Thank you<3

I can't play it, error: RPGVXAce RTP is required to run this game. T_T

Hello! You can either download VX Ace RTP here  http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/additional/run-time-packages  or download the newest version of Paletta here https://rpgmaker.net/games/10160/downloads/9458/ ^^ Thank you for your interest in our game<33

Cute and lovely game <3

Thank you! <3

I just finished playing the game :) I loved it so much! It was adorable!! I'll be looking forward to more games from you hehe <3

Thanks for playing~ We're glad you enjoyed it!

This is a beautiful game and I love it, but I'm stuck at the first thing you have to do. You have to make the goose lay a golden egg and I talked to the moon about it and I got the cake and flower, but I can't figure out how to get the dying thing. The moon said to try and search the flower beds for ashes, but nothing comes up other than the comment about the flower beds. Please help

Aww thank you! That might be a bug, we will look into it. If you try talking to the girl north of the houses she might help you? Or you might already have the ash; try the goose! 

Thank you so much, I didn't even know she was there. I thought I talked to everyone I could but I guess I missed her

This game was AWESOME! Good Job! I really enjoyed it Paletta looked adorable too! If you make more games, I'm going to play them as soon as I can! 

Thank you! We're glad you enjoyed it! <3

Really wanted to play, but I don't currently have the VX Ace RTP.  :( 

It is a shame, too, because this looks so beautiful! I can tell you worked very hard on it.

Hi there! Thank you so much!

There's a link to where you can download the RTP in our downloads section - here you go! 

Thanks! I'll check this out tonight.  :)

hi! i just started playing Paletta but while I was playing, the game got stuck(?) and it wouldnt move at all :/ The music's playing but they're not moving and I tried to go to Menu and clicked 'D' and everything but it wont move :/ It's stuck when I just arrived at the next town after I got the invisible shard. I wonder what the problem is? huhu :(

Hi there! Thanks for telling us about this bug; does this happens when you have just arrived to the town, right after the transfer to that one?  Nothing happens on the new town?

Well i told this person that i was looking for a shard and so i followed the person and then while following him, suddenly they stopped. 

Had the same problem, but compatibility mode windows 7 fix it for me, give it a shot. And good Luck!

btw Great game Cosmic Latte!!
Have a good one ppl!!

Ah. My game's working now! Thank you :)

Hi. My name is Mel. I was wondering if I could translate your game into Spanish. If it doesn't bother you, of course.

PD: Great job with this game, I love it.

Hello there! Sure, go ahead. If you need any graphics or similar things feel free to message us ^Q^

Thanks! uWu

May I make YT video from this game?

Of course!
