This game is so beautiful in various ways. In playing this game, you just get into a state of utter calmness and curiosity. The music is relaxing and smooth. The visuals are light and carefully made, evoking wonder. The gameplay is admittedly subtle and could use something more, yet it's still nice and adds to the ever-growing wonder the player gets. However, I will have to say that I felt the progression of the game went a bit fast in some areas and the story was a bit lacking. For the most part, I think the progression was great. It was fairly slow, allowing the player to really just take it all in. But in some areas, such as when you meet the giant statue next to the farm and then go and talk to the man speeching at the festival, it goes extremely fast in comparison to the pacing in the rest of the game. I feel that could've gone at least a bit slower. Some areas it also goes extremely slow, but I feel that those events are justified, this game being one that's meant to be slow-paced. Even if it is a bit overly slow, it causes the player to do just what the developers wanted - think and wonder. As for the story, I feel it was a bit random and included a lot of unnecessary elements, missing out on chances to help the player understand his situation and have a firmer grip on what was actually going on. You start off with your home being build, are sent to the town, learn about peoples lives, abruptly learn something deeper about yourself, learn about seeing the past, and then are sent off to seek out a dungeon. And all of the NPC's were talking about something in their own life, practically useless information to you, instead of talking about things such as the history of the town, more about their ancestors, or whatnot. Nothing quite seems to tie together very well. But in the end, it was a calming little likable demo to play through. As of now, I will not be recommending it, but will still suggest it if you're truly interested so you can develop your own opinion. I would, however, like to play the whole game when it's out and see if it's worth recommending after playing through that.
