About the Game

Five years ago, a witch's curse beneath the red moon turned Chante into a fairy. Now she and her sister Elise search for a way to transform her back into a human, and in their travels they come across a particular town, which is home to a number of nearby ruins, as well as a peculiar shopkeeper named Aira, and a strange, mercurial fortune-teller who calls herself Elma. Could this place hold the key to returning Chante to normal? Or will it lead to more answers than our two sisters ever wanted to know?...

I kill monsters by throwing my older fairy cursed sister attached to my fishing pole using her as bait 10/10 would abuse my sister again.

I've been playing it, the controls could be a lot better but it fortunately has a gamepad config and I think it's great so far! Characters are really enjoyable and cute, the gameplay is challenging, story is entertaining. Honestly I'm a big dope for cute things and rpg games, it reminds me of the orcarina of time but with 2d characters in a 3d environment. I hope I helped! DANK

I have to say, I've been playing this and I keep coming back for more. A review below me says "it's aged a little" so what? Does that mean story and gameplay isnt fun anymore? Seriously I grow to love the characters, gameplay, and story more and more every min. I dub this an instant classic for me. The developers other games are also very fun and enjoyable as well. Please support this game. Like i said, the only flaw is the controls, but really get a gamepad its well worth it for other games as well. It's like what, 10 bucks out your pocket for something usefull for many other games, don't over look this incredibly fun and enjoyable game, it is well worth 10 dollars.

My control scheme is (xbox controller) a to jump, right trigger to attack, x to target, left trigger for magic and of course the joysticks are camera and movement. DOUBLE DANK

I got up to the final boss, I'm not sure what the producers were thinking... Seems I have to 'level' a bunch to beat it from what other people are saying, but I have a lot of hours down... Hmm.. I strike this as a problem since the only way to really level your character would be to buy things and hp, I believe there should have been a few different ways to upgrade the hitpoints. Getting money is a little slow also so eh, unless there is another way that I'm not seeing, but oh well I play my way. TRIPLE DDDANk cuz ye

Update - my friend has 47 hours on the game and hasn't beaten it

Hard game. Fun game. Cheap game. I enjoyed myself very much playing this game and I definitely think it's good value for money. That being said, it is not for everyone. I strongly suggest that people try out the demo on Steam first. I highly recommend using a controller with this game so you don't run into any issues with the camera.

Due to its charming art-style and characters, this game brings a nice refreshment to the indie genre. Where as the post-child of indie games is an 8-bit-side-scroller with metroid-isq exploration, this is trying to be different with its game-play and mechanics. Its unique, funny, cute and enjoyable but still falls short in some areas.

While it has a nice challenge to it, with interesting boss battles, enemies and areas, it is also borderline aggravating at times. Your attacks aren't 100% reliable, so while it is skill based, there is also a bit of luck involved, and because the game is skill based, there is also an element of grinding levels and money involved. The game isn't exp-based, it's based on items.

Really, all in all this is a charming and fun game, that's refreshing and enjoyable.

Really stylish action game, but its very difficult, lots of trial and error. Walkthru is almost required. Still I enjoyed my time with it, even though I couldn't finish it.

Good game, but the controls are a bit messed up.

Examples: If you're using gamepad, then holding the "confirm" button will swipe through many of the conversations, which are gems and not meant to be skipped. Shoulder buttons are somehow allowed to be mapped to other functions (like attack, jump etc)- mapping a shoulder to one of these will break the in-game camera rotation.

Otherwise, pretty good, but I feel like they could've spent a bit more time on preparing this for steam. Last time I played this was using keyboard and the non-steam version. I do remember the game having these same problems back then and I had hoped they would've been addressed in one way or another.

If you can work past these problems, its a good game and reminiscent of Recettear (which was also translated by the same company who translated this game: Carpe Fulgur).

The game is, in my opinion, great. The game is pretty challenging and you may die a lot of time, but it is still worth buying considering the overall gameplay and storyline.

The story is funny and intriguing so you should be hooked on it. As for the gameplay, it's a lot of fun, even though it's difficult. So buy it. Now.
