The purpose of me creating an account at NewGrounds is solely for telling you what you are about to read. I first played this game around December, 2008. Back then I would rarely play video games or access the web. But this game made an impression to me. It was by far my favourite. A decade later, I return, still remembering not only the name of the game, but even details from optional NPC conversations. I once again play the game fully, from start to end in one sitting. What you have done with this game is truly unique. The story, art-style, animations, music and theme work together fabulously. The approach of having portals to travel around the map is also important to the success and impact of the story. Unlike other 2D games, you can actually get lost searching for villages, hidden taverns, the witch hut, graveyard... It isn't just restricted to moving left and right. It has depth. This game is truly of great excellence, and for that I congratulate you, even more so for your decision of releasing it completely free, for its purpose is not to make money (just like most games filled with micro-transactions) but good story telling. And this isn't just good story telling. It is story telling done right.
