Amazing job. An example of a game with the essential info and well put up design. Tasty as pie. 


Thank you for your kind words. I hope you enjoy the Pie as much as that orc does ! <3 

Feel free to share some photos & feedback !


I won a physical copy of this cute one-pager for free at Rolisboa 2019 but I still wanted to leave a small tip for it here. This game is totally awesome and I'm super glad you decided to upload it for public download so that other people can appreciate how amazing it is. :)


Dear Minakie, thank you for supporting this game even after winning the exclusive physical Portuguese version over at Rolisboa 2019. You'll be receiving an email really soon with a special digital thank you art <3


Hi Jkantor,

Thank you for supporting the Orc and the Pie. Unfortunately sometimes typos happen since we're not native english speakers/writters. But we do our best to improve and correct them. Take a look at the development log - https://mare-baixa.itch.io/the-orc-and-the-pie/devlog/108908/typos-corrected - where we mention that we corrected the typos a couple of minutes after the launch of the game. If you find more of them please tell us!  


This looks totally awesome. If you ever want to do a french version, I'd be right here to help translaite it – text and/or layout.


Hi Nicolas, thank you so much for your kind words. 
We would love to have The Orc and the Pie translated to French. Could you send the text to our email? mare.baixa@pm.me and we'll insert it in the current layout of the game <3 


I'm a volunteer for reviewing it. This game is an insta-wannaplay
