At the beginning it is a little complicated to understand what the player have too do, but later it makes even more fun.


The ideas here seem pretty cool and the art, story and sound are fantastic, but the game does not take enough time to explain the mechanics in an accessible way, especially the turn structure. Because of this I was floundering with trial an error trying to understand the movement, abilities, environmental hazards and core loop all while a clock was ticking down and being punished for it. I'm sure with some time my understanding will grow, but it was not a pleasant start.

Thanks for the feedback, that means a lot for us !

We will try to work these things out for next month’s update.
