I played the demo for a bit, and I still feel bad for killing all the animals...
Apart from that, the game feels pretty good, although I just got past the intro bit and only just set out on the Emerald Trail. Really nice work y'all!
EDIT: Soo, I got to the end of the demo. Thankfully I didn't have to kill that many animals to get there! I hope that if I stick with Fred we can make a pacifist run.
I find I've developed an allergy to "training grounds" and all associated tutorialing, thankfully it was over fast and the infodumping was minimal. Otherwise everything feels light and easy to comprehend, so thanks for that!
I was a bit overwhelmed by all the emotion bubbles, to the point I didn't understand anymore what everybody wuz emoting... Also, I felt all the cutscenes were too talky, but maybe I just can't stand talk anymore either.
The art still looks really nice, esp. all the portraits! Also the graphical style looks good and things fit together pretty well. The Violet Hills were really violet and the Emerald Trail was a ton of fun to trek through, I'm totally for these colour schemes! I wuz at the top of the peak in the Settlement, and the pixel landscape there looked a bit fuzzy, tho. Small things.
I feel like I got somethin' else to say, but I forgot it.
Oh! Fightin' was fun, I'm all for when I can just be carefree and button mash my way through fights.
