    I was going to wait for my newly ordered audio equipment to arrive before recording this, but after trying out the event for a bit I decided it simply couldn't wait... So here's another iPhone recording for you all:

    A Lighthearted and Imaginative Music Video, but Lacks Depth

    This lyrical composition presents an overall lighthearted and whimsical tone, painting a vivid picture of a playful and imaginative narrative. However, despite its catchy nature, the video lacks depth and fails to fully explore the potential of the lyrics.

    The opening sets a cheerful and light tone, introducing the character of "Mr. Pasta-a man." The lyrics convey an infatuation, with the protagonist expressing their admiration for Mr. Pasta-a man, describing him as everything they desire in a partner. This initial setup provides a playful foundation for the piece.

    The series of adventurous and exotic scenarios displays a narrative filled with fun, playful romance. The idea of embarking on a boat trip, symbolizing a romantic escapade, is visually appealing and creates a sense of wanderlust. The mention of stroking hair in the wind and sailing towards Marseilles adds a touch of romanticism to the narrative.

    The lyrics continue to depict a dreamlike experience of traveling the world, swimming with dolphins and orcas, and dancing with strangers in burqas. These imaginative elements, although seemingly random, adds a fanciful touch and invite viewers to indulge in a fantastical journey.

    However, despite the charming and picturesque scenes presented by the narrative, the video lacks a deeper exploration of the underlying themes. The narrative could have delved into the emotions and intentions behind the protagonist's desire for adventure and romance. By delving into the protagonist's longing for exploration and connection, the video could have evoked a stronger emotional response from the audience.

    Additionally, the mention of sharing a Cosmo and the casual suggestion of cuddling presents a contrast between the extravagant fantasies and more intimate, down-to-earth desires. This contrast could have been further explored, perhaps through contrasting visuals or the portrayal of the protagonist's conflicting emotions.

    Overall, the music video showcases a lighthearted and imaginative concept. It successfully establishes a whimsical atmosphere and stimulates the viewer's imagination. However, it falls short in terms of depth and exploration of the emotions and themes underlying the lyrics. With more attention to character development and emotional storytelling, this could have created a more compelling and resonant experience for the audience.

    Thank you, TeamAlvin, for taking the time out of your day to write up such a thorough review. I really do appreciate your feedback.

    I’d just like to point out that the tasteful and minimalistic route I deliberately chose to wander down in this project, cinematographically speaking, is perfectly in harmony with the stylistic decisions in most of my other works.

    I wanted to recreate the massive success of my other films with a music video that was visually appealing to the eye, while at the same time allowing the lyrics to take center stage. I believe that the playful and imaginative narrative, combined with the catchy nature of the song, creates a fun and enjoyable experience for the viewer throughout.

    I appreciate your suggestion of delving further into the protagonist's emotions and intentions, but I can’t help but think that you are rather dim. I don’t intend to offend, but I firmly believe that the video successfully conveys the protagonist's desire for adventure and romance through the playful and imaginative scenarios displayed, and masterfully so.

    For what it’s worth, I hope that you can still enjoy the video for what it is - a lighthearted and imaginative music video that invites viewers to indulge in a fantastical journey. Thank you again for your review.

    I want to express my disappointment to not see this come into play - and going further at this rate I expect another merger of two events or skipping one of them due to the time constraints.

    I highly appreciate the recent efforts into conveying the vast amounts of work that goes into what the playerbase may deem as simple - no question the dev team is hard at it with their voluntary time.

    That being said - if the game development team (Pasta) is overworked and burnt out, and failing to deliver immediate promises, shouldn't efforts be made by admins to recruit more Game Developers?

    What can get merged/skipped is a non-patch event with a patch event nowadays, which is what is happening now. What's been taking long is that "July" patch.

    It's annoying, but it's still this coming into play.

    We are working on splitting the workload differently, yes; although that will take a bit of time, because I need to teach to whoever will be handling different tasks how those are done. I'm not burnt out, though.

    Sorry for the double post, but, reading the first post in this thread again, I realize I might have worded the patch splitting concept in a way that's not clear enough.

    When I talk about "separating Event patches and Content patches", I mean that we changed the way we view and organize these two types of patch from the planning phase; while, before, our planning for each event patch would automatically include all the balancing, new content, and tweaks/bugfixes we wanted to push during the season, now we moved these parts to separate patches, and the event patches are solely focused on an event release.
    The main difference is that, if a content patch takes too long to be worked on, risking to overlap with the next event and delay it too much, we can simply put it aside for the post-event downtime period, and instead release the event in time. Events are few and spread enough that this is not a matter for them.
    This coming content patch includes a lot of necessary work for the challenge system, plus some long-overdue changes, that we didn't want to delay.

    In hindsight, yes, we should have paused this and went for the summer event first, which I guess is a mistake I'll be learning from, but now that the patch is almost ready, we'll take the hit and just release it all together.
