Knew nothing about the game and I was baffled.
So it's a very cool Zelda 1-like where you are just thrown in there and you must figure out what to do by yourself. Loved the inclusion of an old-school manual being it's own ingame thing, full of secrets if you look at it closely ( I actually spent a few hours trying to decipher the made-up language (did not succeed) ); And that feeling when you discover an ability you had since the very beginning but you didn't know because you just never tried it. The world ends up being very coherent, and overall it's a game that makes you feel very intelligent haha.
The second third of the game was a bit less interesting, more classing item-dungeon-boss, and the bosses are really not the best aspect of the game imo.
But in the final act there's this new mechanic à la The Witness and the game becomes incredible again.
(The ost is also really good, and the main artwork for the game was drawn by Aurahack and that makes me very happy to know that you can draw big tiddies online and still get some non-NSFW jobs haha)
