There have been roughly a billion and three pixel-art SNES-like action-adventure-RPG-hybrid indie games released on Switch and other platforms, most of which leave me utterly cold.  This is not one of them.  It looks nice, for one thing, not like the art was just something that needed doing to get the game out the door.  The soundtrack gives me heavy Stranger Things vibes in a good way.  The character designs have strong Mother energy, and it looks like there are going to be lots of interesting places to explore (and a whale on a roof).  

As for how it's going to play, that's still pretty hard to tell.  Looks like it might have shooty elements?  EDIT: Scratch that, IGN did a 25-minute gameplay demonstration!



Regardless, it's interesting enough to have ended today's showcase, so I reckon it's interesting enough to get a thread.  Anyone else tempted?

Oh, I'll watch that gameplay thing later! I've been intrigued by the vibes but I had no idea what kind of game this would be.

I'm very interested in this, the art just looks wonderful

Absolutely does, I'm surprised this one hasn't gone more attention. Even if it's a bit RPG-y for around here, I'd have thought its strong Earthbound vibes would get attention from beyond the usual crowd.

I think it's one everyone quietly knows will be decent but because we've not really seen it there isn't much to say on it, as someone who's never played Earthbound but definitely gets those vibes, I'm still expecting this to be really good and I'll very likely be playing it around launch.

I'm 100% down for this - the art and general vibes are right up my alley. Am I wrong in saying there's a little bit of classic Zelda DNA in there from watching that gameplay video?

Some for sure, part of why it looks good I think

Classic Zelda x Mother feel is what I'm getting.
