Just finished this game and I loved it! I played through this on my iPad, but I have to say that the PC version is much more enjoyable to me so far. I think this is a game that is best enjoyed when you're not on-the-go, so that is why I prefer the PC version. Seeing it on a bigger screen and hearing it with better speakers makes it much more immersive. It has one of the most unique art styles I have ever seen. The music is fantastic and I have been listening to the soundtrack frequently outside of the game. The story is intriguing. In short, this is a masterpiece and well worth the 4-5 hour play-through if you can accept the strangeness and just try "feel" the game and the music. They put a lot of emotion into it. Oh, and use a nice pair of headphones if you have access to some.

Pros:
*Even though it's a point-and-click adventure game, you get a little sword fighting/blocking action which is great in my opinion.
*Music! Awesome feel.
*Art style is very unique and beautiful.

Cons:
*Not much replay value, but for a low price that's not much of an issue for some people.

9.8/10

Normally, I'm not into point-and-click games... at all. I was initally drawn in by the intriguing pixel art style, but stayed for the music, atmosphere, and interesting narrative that unfolded. I originally started it on iOS, and having never finished it, was compelled to complete it on the PC once it released. This game isn't for everyone, but I'd recommend it to anyone that does like this type of thing that may be sitting on the fence. The asking price seems fair for what you get as well.
