The developer still stuck in the Saturn /Dreamcast era bubble, both visually and gameplay wise.I finished the demo...
jesus fucking christ what the hell did I play there?
this has to be the weirdest fucking game I've played in a while.
it literally feels like a sega saturn game that was designed during an acit trip or something.
everything about it is so fucking weird.
and it also runs like crap on Series X, the game can't hold 60fps and it's not running at native 4k either (my bet would be 1800p just judging by eye)
it is weirdly endearing tho because it's such a fucking weird game. feels like you found some old Sega game on a rom site that you've never heard of
You'd think if a game isn't great, they would avoid putting out a demo.
I played the demo. It has all the fantasy world building for any Sega fan to enjoy. It has cool world changing stuff going on. Collecting items is where a lot of the platforming shines. It really isn’t bad, but there’s something about the way it comes off feels a bit odd at times. The characters really bring out the history he has with Sega as well as Digimon. Some of those designs really remind me of the Digimon universe. Which he did go on to help assist with iirc. It does have an older style of object placement, which isn’t always bad. There are places on the map where objects or platforms don’t make any sense. The game has a lot of wonder to it. The final part of the demo felt easy and felt like a beginner’s type of game. Overall I wouldn’t mind playing it. I just don’t know about the day 1 cost. It’s enjoyable, but at what price do I want to relive that type of enjoyment? I do see why some people criticize it, but it has good platforming when things are moving around in the game. The Balan parts were kinda weird because there’s this odd timing and it isn’t free roaming either. I wanted the Balan part to be like the secret stages in the Sonic games where you can move the character even if they’re always having to be at a certain speed.It's not bad for what it is. Some are more critical than others. Give it a whirl and let me know your thoughts!
