Something of a mix between Passage and Polkadot, Tanaka's Friendly Adventure is a charming little exploration game that involves gathering a group of friends to attend the titular character's birthday party celebration. There's no time limit to rush you into doing anything, and the adventure can be replayed as many times as you want. You can also visit your friends in a special section accessible via the main menu.

Adorable and charming game.

To those saying it was an easy win: you didn't win.

You could say even if you collect all of the friends available you don't win, because it's not about winning anything; there IS nothing to win. It's a game to be played and enjoyed for what it is, and I loved reading about all the little friends Tanaka made.

a really easy win pressing the arrows keys in random directions.
The art was pretty though

I dont know...

Its nice, but it its not that good...
As a game it is very bad
As an art game, not the greatest out there... In my opinion art should explore some deep theme, this game is about collecting different friends and how they are all unique, however it fails to reflect that you can only have a few friends that will always be out there for you, and that those friends are important, instead you hoard countless "friends" for your party or something...
PS: It reminded me of pokemon

My interpretations of this game

1. People stop being so rushy
2. People think outside the box
3. This game is about patience
4. This game has its beauties.
5. There are many different paths to take
6. Think of this game as a collecting of items, it is not stupid.
7. This game is relaxing and soothing with the music, its like a game relief from all the action and adventure games we play.

This is my interpretation.
