Haven't played for long, but already like it. Sure its sort of plain but has a nice bgm and very pleasing visuals.
Considering the devastating reviews, I had expected cancer, but this like lobster from yesterday -
so still pretty good. Also drops nice cards!

Cant remember though, which preview i watched, that left me devastated (because of the music) ...
Fortunatley only in that particular preview that was either on steam or elsewhere.

If you have 3$/€ to spare and wanna give a shot to a short and fun RPG (without many frills) give it a try,
you'l most probably enjoy it! If not write positive review, to lure some other fools into the game you
deem as an abysmal trap. (j.k. its good, try it)

UPDATED after the developer got his friends to bad mouth me for posting a negative review!

Avoid this dev at all costs! Look at the forums and Metacritic that point out the abysmal plot, grammar, and story telling. Not only are they unskilled at this, but they are unable to handle criticism. If you sell something to the public, it's got to be good enough to play. This isn't.

The point regarding the wine bottle is that no one who speaks English says that! You say 'I want a bottle of wine', not a 'wine bottle'. Do you get it now? English may not be the dev's first language, but if it's sold in English, tough.

Original review:
Painfully clunky and slow in every aspect. I love RPGs, but the direction and story here are simply terrible.

First, your grandmother asks you to pick up a 'wine bottle' from the pub. 'I'll be happy with my wine bottle' she says when you give it to her. Every piece of dialogue is written like this.

Secondly, you do a quest for an older gent which involves going into the caves beneath his house. All you're told is 'clear it out'. Random attacks happen, and someone throws down a rope. Going back up moves nothing on, because you were supposed to *jump* up onto a cliff face and chase an imp into a smaller cave. You're not told you can jump, or that the quest is up there - but if you don't do this, you'll not advance with the plot.

A witch called Xen storms into town and casually turns your character into a girl. This is the whole plot, from what I can tell. There's no reason for the witch to do this, bar she's taking over villages for no particular reason and boom, gender switch.

I realise this game is cheap, and I wanted to enjoy it. However, the woeful writing and storyline make it agony to play, and I'm sorry I bought this in a bundle. Avoid at all costs. If you want a genuinely enchanting RPG with a positive plot, may I recommend Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale? It's charming and enjoyable, with many hidden plot twists and character stories.

For a game that I got for free, not bad. It's like a mix of Earthbound and Final Fantasy, but lacks the charming aspects of both. But for a game this cheap, why not pick up a copy? It's cheaper than a burger at McDonalds.

Game was okay. Not as bad as some people said. Granted, I didn't finish the story. I was playing for the cards mostly. The taste I got was an interesting concept of a story (And I could think of a few endings that would be weirdly interesting). As reviewers said, not great mapping. Best part of this game though; the humor. I loved all of the jokes that were made here and there! Made it worth playing for me.

So I've got this game for free and well I'm not dissapointed. It's a VFT game with rpg elements and I like it!
The story just starts too fast you don't get to know your characters traits at the beginning but later it gets more interesting.
One thing that I don't like a bit is that well you know usually games bring in the story slowly and then everything goes faster well this game is like BANG BANG and you're already in a war with a witch

Really bland story and uninspired characters that you won't ever remember. The battle system is too simplistic and after you get some itens way too easy. If you really don't have anything new to play give it a try otherwise don't bother.

There's not much in it, whether it's the story or gameplay. The battle is too plain, just attack, attack skills, attack.

It's an RPG Maker game, so it's almost a given that it's shovelware garbage, but even by the low standards of RPG Maker games, this is ridiculous. You have two choices to play -- a tiny, tiny windowed box, or full screeen with out of control screen flickering. They even stuck in an option to "Reduce screen flickering," which does exactly nothing to reduce screen flickering. At least it has cards I guess.
