Love the artwork. Very different, enchanting, and appealing.
Not thrilled with the game play:
1) movement has 2 forms, 1 where you can move left / right, and 1 where you're in combat mode, only if you actually get into combat, it changes modes yet again. This is a bit jarring, and hurts the ability to suspend disbelief and feel immersed in the game.
2) Having a party member be a card that gets played to get them into the battle seems a bit odd.
There is no real explanation for why they are cards, and others are not?
3) Not clear why there is punctuation in the middle of the name of the game?
Overall, if not for the fantastic artwork, this game would be forgettable. With the artwork: I kinda like it.
