I'll reserve a full review for when I get around to the other route (it's a bit like Undertale
in that there's a true route which gives a satisfying ending and a much darker alternate route for those that are really keen for more) but I have to say I bloody loved it. I haven't stopped thinking about the story and how it all panned out since I beat it on Wednesday evening. I loved the writing, the characters and the combat really grew on me in the later stages of the game as you unlocked more abilities, which was very much in the vein of Mother 3
. The artstyle was bloody beautiful too. I think the only thing that I could say would be a turn-off for fans of the genre would be that it's certainly a dark game and even tries to be scary at points too, but it didn't bother me as I don't find horror in these sorts of games to be scary in the same vein as a first person 3D horror game. It's definitely dark though in a way that the Mother series or Undertale
isn't, but I think it almost has to be considering the subject matter it's dealing with.
It's an easy 10/10 for me.

Yes, I've played it and beaten it. I think much like most roguelikes there comes a moment where everything sort of clicks and you find yourself getting further and further in the game. I definitely remember struggling in the early bits of that game though and remember the first boss being a pain too. That's the big eyeball lad, right?
