I would've just enjoyed this as a short story to read. The game play is minimal, there is no choice that effects the story so you just have to walk to different areas to read the next story line. Graphics are cute but not enough that makes me want to continue sitting through the same few locations for slow plot development.

It is a one-of-a-kind story with amazing delivery through the storytelling. The timing and order of the major reveals and emotional sucker punches is absolutely flawless. I had mental whiplash from all the times I suspected the story of following a popular trope, but got the rug pulled out from under me constantly. However, it doesn't do so at the cost of it being too confusing to keep up with. I personally don't like anything pixel style, where the entire world looks like it is made from legos, but I know that's my own personal preference about that artistic choice. The atmospheric music is dramatic and adds to the emotion of the story in the best kind of way. I felt like calling it a game is a bit misleading regarding what you can expect. It is really more of a visual novel that is just interactive enough to keep us people with restless energy consistently engaged and attentive. There is no stress on the player with puzzles or time restraints for tasks and also nothing that requires quick reflexes. As someone who has gotten stuck in many types of games, that all really isn't a bad thing.

I absolutely loved it! It's got cute square graphics, an awesome story, and great characters! Sure it may have issues but all games do! The only problems were that I finished it in one day, the controls, and the plot holes. But some small plot holes are bound to happen! Anyway I would recommend it! At first I just thought it would join my other games that I would just leave alone but this one kept me engaged! So many twists and turns! I wanted to know what would happen next! 5 stars for sure!
