An RPG with heart

An RPG with throwback traditional elements that enjoyably doesn’t take itself seriously. Monsters are always having conversations, your characters are mostly one-dimensionally hilarious, and the situations you find yourselves in are great fodder for laughs.

Tl;dr almost got wiped, but was saved by throwing a fish at the enemy. 10/10, would laugh again

Fun Concept, Flawed Saves

I really want to sit down and enjoy this game from start to finish. The humor is excellent, the opening scenario with Echo was really cool, and I had hoped to experiment with her character abilities and see what all other spells there were that she could learn from enemies, but it seems like every time I save the game and close it out, the save deletes itself by the time I come back. Feeling like all the work scanning enemy abilities went to waste is a major downer.

Gave two stars because the tongue-in-cheek humor from the opening bit had me chuckling, but if the game won’t work for me, I can’t go higher than that :(

Feels like the great old school SNES RPGs

I love this game. It has that look and feel of an old school RPG. If, for no other reason, that would be enough for me to move it. But there is so much more to like about it. The story, the characters, and the pace are all whimsical and fun. This is what an independent game developer should be, when it comes to an RPG.
