im to poor for this


I'm a sucker for how cute the pixel art is and the environment. The parallax is done really well and the characters oozes personality!


Fuuuuuck, surprising amount of depth. I really like all the characters, just wandering around and talking with a really nice physically controlled character. Camera was so smooth too. Really good shit, giving me tingles.
