Excellent game. Love the quirky graphics, the painful-looking limp that the character has, and the obvious care that went into it.
As others have said, it feels like the land is empty. I guess cause it is? Maybe some NPC's? More quests for sure.
The teleport home bug is a rough one. It tells you that you must wait 9 minutes to teleport home... and keeps saying that. I have not seen it reset once. Kind of a bummer.
The grindy-ness didn't feel too bad to me; I did everything save the King quest in under 3 hours. It was fun too. Also, the chests really help with inventory size; however, the teleport would really be a help to retrieve needed items (like your saw, damnit)... Maybe a 'town portal' type thing would be better?
MOAR SPELLS needed. I like to play magic-users, and while I understand that the magic in this game is simply a ranged weapon to get the birds, it'd be nice to have more magic.
Just make it perfect, with all the stuff that everyone wants, okay?!?
haha! Great job, man.
