    Played the demo for this one. It was neat, but I think the characters moved too slowly.

    Maybe I’m too used to Ys.

    I got the early access build and it’s pretty great, super polished as well. Only thing that made me stop playing was that I went slightly ocd trying to S+ everything and failing.

    Fantastic. This was the one early access game I bought. Super hyped that the full release is coming.

    I’ll probably buy it for the Vita as well.
