Read your Kotaku review: "feeling of openness and possibility" was what you wanted and what I felt. Basically a subversion of the Legend of Zelda hero trope, right? Compared to anything on NG, this had more interesting use of gameplay to impart meaning. And thus, using video games for what they're supposed to be used for. And hey, a parody of LoZ:OOT's Deku Tree via the Useless Big Tree of the Oracle? Fun!

Game imparts meaning better than average games on NG, but against an ideal standard, you can do better than a rehash of the themes of so many post-modern vidjagames like MGS2 & Spec Ops: The Line. This is the central message I got the game: haphazardly collecting tokens from chests results in good things, and not thinking about your actions results in bad things--I don't know what in your life you're drawing that lesson from, but it ain't good if life is really that uncomplicated for you. The obvious gameplay & design problems are obvious, but they don't matter as much as that major thematic problem.

I do admire what you were able to do in spite of all that. I can't code for shit. I'm eager to see what you do when you work on those themes.

The game is by no means unpolished or bad, however I do have some grief with how the game is set up. At any moment after getting the fire spell, you can go into the final area, effectively locking yourself in there with nothing to do but press R and restart the entire thing. You couldn't have a lock on the place? Really? Other than that, the game is indeed good, but come on.

after defeating that purple devil with his shield i went around found some icy stuff, met a devil that tells me "you're not ready for this" then I got stuck :/


ConnorUllmann responds:

Do you mean physically "stuck" in the game? Or like, mentally? What you need to do from there is go to the forest area and find the next dungeon :)

I hate the movement. It is frustrating how you move in a different direction and your person still goes the way they were before.

At first I liked the game. But technical problems and lags kinda killed it. This is very important actually.

The game lagged terribly in the "lacste" something and when I restarted from the last point it deleted my save. I'm disappointed. My computer runs heavy games and heavy online games very good. Sounds weird to me that suddenly my computer became garbage.
