hi, there doesn't seem to be any way to access options? the first screen just shows basic instructions, no menu, pressing any button just starts the game but the text is all out of wack because it automatically gets into french and the font doesn't have an é so it's very jarring (especially given that the french translation seems to be like, google translated)
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Trawl the sea to discover what secrets are hidden in its depths and record your findings on your typewriter.
The sea has many stories to tell, and will reward multiple voyages.
If you choose to record your findings on the typewriter, Trawl will save a text file in your Documents/Trawl/ folder.
Linux Users Please Note: While we have verified that Trawl runs as intended on Linux, we've only been able to do so on the one machine, a Mac Mini. Should you run into into any problems, we'll be happy to try and work through them with you, or to refund you if you'd prefer.

this is by far my favorite game, but sadly cannot play it due to the mac update. still gonna play once i get a computer that can run it.
The game automatically shows in Spanish and I'm sorry to say it's poorly translated. How can I change the language back to English?
Hiya! I did a bit of a playthrough for you
Made a blog and reviewed this game in it https://dawnsplaceyt.blogspot.com/2021/10/small-games-and-my-thoughts-1.html
Takes an Age to Figure Out What To Do But
Found That More Fun In Retrospect!,
I Went Through One Proper Run At Least,
VERY LOUD AMBIANCE.
How do I change the language? I'd love to play it, but it automatically set it's language to German for me (I assume because my OS is in German), which has sentences cut off among other issues and I can't find any settings to change it?
sorry it switched to German, there should be options o nthe main menu to change this.
Any way to change graphical settings? The frame rate is quite bad for me
Didn't work for me on Ubuntu I'm afraid. It gets as far as the Unity Splash screen, then crashes.
If I strace it, the error might be:
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/home/user1/Trawl_Linux/Trawl_Data/Managed/System.dll.so.la", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
I looked in the dir, and the closest file to that is called System.dll
Hopefully that is some help. It's not a big deal for me, I have a Windows machine too to play it on.
really sorry, we rushed out the linux build but stopped supporting this game a long time ago :( very sorry! if you paid for it then I will gladly refund you?
I have a few problems with my gameplay?
1. It switched to french, and I read another comment that said to look under "utiliser les options" but i cant find an option menu at all.
2. I can't seem to catch anything in the trawl, even after letting it sit in the water (i tried with and without the boat moving) for 10 min straight.
Maybe something happened on my end? The game itself seems really cool, i just can't play it :(
sorry it switched to french, there should be options o nthe main menu to change this. The game itself involves figuring out how to catch things. My hint would be to use the radio. I hope you get to play it some more. Sorry about the french issue, I will try look into it.
I really like this concept! I wish it was expanded on! I think it could be really cool!
I found a xxxbottle and a key but the key wa-
s all bent and a harmonica - also bent. help m-
y radio is on fire!!!
S O S
----------------- -=- -----------------
what am i supposed to do after the radio breaks
help I somehow changed the text to French and I don't know how to change it back
I had fun playing it, but why does the radio break after 3 uses? And I don't know if it's just me, but after it breaks, I can't find anything else.....
So the radio breaks and you put the note youve been writing in the bottle and chuck it in the ocean and the game restarts, i have a video on it on my channel DawnsPlaceYT or see my comment for the gameplay its fairly simple I too wish that it went for more than 3 goes
Intriguing game. I kept expecting something horrifying to happen given the ambiance. The sounds of the ship and the isolation had me on edge. I wish there was something more meaningful to completing a voyage, although I'm not sure what I'd suggest.
