I would love to see more come out of this, whether it be a sequel or an update. Gingko is, by far, one of my absolute favorites.

This game is amazing!
I made a gameplay, it's in Portuguese, but there are subtitles

Hello, I love your game especially the spooky parts and the traditional music, but I think I found a bug where after the girl runs away from the monster she meets again, I fell out of the world. If it's possible for this to be fixed thank you.
here my gameplay : )
I think you need a better cover photo
I made a video on the game please check it out!
Im definitly looking forward to the full game. Its not really a horror game for me, more like an absolutly amazing adventure with a wierd creature :) i like the needle part u put in the game. felt like something new!
I love it, really cool puzzles & scary at same time :) Really well done game!
What a great game! It has it's own authentic style and mechanics. Creepy sometimes, but I believe it's more about storytelling and puzzles. I would love to see more!
wow, love the art style, i just love anything japanese
i sucked at figuring out what to do but i screamed really hard so thats nic
First of all, I enjoyed the game, finally got to try it. Second, I'm hesitating to post it here because of the thumbnail. I'm just really slow in figuring out puzzles... Sincere Apologies :(
this is very spooky and also your game is HIGH QUALITY,
great and awesome.
I ended out playing the steam version but has to post it here. Guys this game is amazing!!!
Dang this seriously impressed me, amazing job, i screamed multiple times, love it
made a video on this and its great the mechanics are unique and I love the art style the monster is dope but not that scary but it still makes for a unique experience that's worth checking out if you want to check out my video here it isvery good game with a decent story would love to see more of this
I spent a good amount of time working on this video, I really like this game, and can't wait to see it's full release!
Also, how do I get in contact with you Devs?
Tried out your game, pretty good stuff.
This game is really sad and I really enjoy learning about the relationships. Please play it! Also for the devs. if you die the motion blur gets re set to 70.
Saw John Wolfe play this game, very interesting game mechanic ! I see a great potential !
I played this amazing game for my channel and I have to say its very new and fresh, however the bugs are a bit nerve racking. Overall Id say it was a distinct indie game.
I played through the demo and actually recorded it for my channel. I absolutely loved this demo. It is definitely one of my favorite games that I've played recently, and I am desperately waiting for more. Although I did run into a few minor issues occasionally, I thoroughly enjoyed the needle mechanic. We need more unique games like yours, thank you for making it!
Hey! Part of your game is also available on my channel's fun video!
Pros and cons are down below) Check out my vid here:
1. A very cool and original mechanic with the needle. I think it's very impressive!
2. I love the monster. It's so creepy and weird - the perfect monster for a horror game.
3. The lore behind all of that is very interesting. I love that the game has secret rooms and notes that reveal more of the story. That is very cool. I hope that in the full version secrets will be everywhere))
Disadvantages (I played before the update though):
1. Very buggy. I broke literally everything. I fell into neverending pit and quitting and continuing always returned me there. So I had to start over. For some reason after that the game started lagging as hell. Also, if you look at the picture and press escape, the game freezes. I broke everything I could XD. You can see that in the video. Would be great if you could fix it anb if my vid would help you).
2. It was very strange how this monster with such long legs can not step over a thread. I think the game "ParanormalHK" has the similar monster but they can even walk on the ceiling. I think that would be more terrifying if the monster could walk on the ceiling or the walls.
I enjoyed that a lot. I think this game is wonderful. Though, it is soo buggy, Not cool! Still, I would rate it 5/5 as it is only early access. Keep up the great work!
Hope my feedback was useful!
Had some bug with the scissors not cutting and the monster not.... monstering, but over all a fun puzzle game.
Your game was as I called it whimsical horror. I enjoyed the overall mechanics & atmosphere even though I felt it more of a puzzle platformer than horror. Kudos to everyone who worked on this!
I'm honestly impressed with this game. Very unique mechanics and cool design.
This was honestly a very unique mechanic which overall made the games enjoyable, am very curious to see how else it could be implemented to stay fresh.
This was an interesting dive into Japanese folklore. However, it also has some major game-breaking bugs. Namely, falling through the map.
One of the greatest challenges I've had to face yet.
Thank you so much for playing and your determination in solving our puzzles kieran_schwartz! Your playthrough was very entertaining!
This was such a unique experience and it is killing me that there isn't more to play! I wanted to find an interesting horror game to play gor my youtube channel and this beyond provided it. The needle mechanic is super cool and was implemented so cleverly, its different uses and lack of ability to damage big scary skeleton lady while still being able to delay her or warn you she is coming makes for a truly original concept. Thank you to the entire staff for providing such a cool title and I can't wait to see more!
Here is my Ginkgo experience!
We're so glad you enjoyed Ginkgo HotLettuceTV! Your playthrough was very exciting to watch!
Easily one of the most unique horror games I've played this year! Loved the idea of having helpful and not so helpful yokai too, lovely idea to mix those together.
Having a needle and thread gameplay system is not something I thought I would ever see, but you know what, it works really well! I did have a couple of issues, but nothing I wasn't able to overcome!
It did take me a little while to get used to the concept too, but again, once I got the hang of it, it wasn't so bad. It can be a bit disconcerting to be able to highlight up interactable objects when you're too far away to do so though, that threw me off a couple of time!
Overall this was an inventive, clever, equally scary and cute little demo and I am very hyped to see more of this in the future =)
Thank you for your detailed and kind feedback MikeyBlighe! Your note on the interactable highlight was especially helpful, and our team has been looking into it for a smoother experience in the future!
Debo admitir que tuvieron una idea bastante original con el tema de la costura utilizando como "arma" una aguja, a pesar de que es un demo está muy bien logrado.
Algunos bugs pero estoy segura que cuando entreguen el proyecto final, se verá increíble. Este juego, rompe el molde.
Me encantan los juegos de terror asiáticos, siento que sus elementos son muy diferentes a los juegos de terror a los que estamos acostumbrados y por supuesto, su mitología es rica y extensa.
Gracias para sus palabras Bruja del Arcade! Estámos muy felíz que nuestro juego se siente original <3
Its an amazing game with an original play style. Its refreshing to see a horror game that isn't a PT clone or find x number of whatever to escape. Loved the aesthetics and the music. Can't wait for the full release!
We're so glad you enjoyed Ginkgo jdferguson09! One of our biggest goals with Ginkgo was making an experience none of our devs had experienced before, so your review is exactly what we wanted to hear!
Something I loved that I don’t see too many comments about is the house. kind of reminds me of the home in What Remain’s Of Edith Finch in the sense that they’re both enormous and whimsical with hidden passages and rooms. Can’t wait to see the rest of the game!
What Remains of Edith Finch was one of our narrative + design inspirations!! A great catch Alprazolam :)
I loved this game ... of course it lacks a little more terror, but the mechanics with the needle and the small puzzles give it that touch that many games today lack ... I would say that they made the game a little more dangerous monster but for the rest I loved it ... I leave a small gameplay that I make on my channel and when it comes out I will play it 100% sure .. keep it up :) (jaja the gameplay is in spanish xD)
