    Looks pretty interesting. Too bad it's episodic. I will take a closer look once the actual complete game is out. Goddamn I fucking hate episodic games.

    Not seeing a thread for this little gem yet. It was very strange, oozes with style -- but little substance. I enjoyed the experience however, tone feels very similar to the upcoming and much anticipated Octopus City Blues but if they were doing an episodic telltale type thing.

    Be warned the comparisons to monkey island are a bit of a stretch.

    Ah I looked for this in the Adventure thread before posting, didn't occur to me to look for it in JRPG despite the rpgmaker look. It's very much an avante-garde adventure game, little to no rpg mechanics to be had outside of the last little section. It even has a first person shooter segment. Very fractured and incoherent game that was still a lovely way to pass an evening.
