Created an account just to say, this game is tight!!! Great use of pixel art, everything is vibrant and easy to recognize, and cute, to boot ;) The puzzles are just the perfect amount of effort, and every time I thought, "oh no, I locked myself out of winning", it never happened. Gameplay is narrative focused, and the side quests make sense without being too much. The way the tension builds up with little clues about the thing "off screen" from the beginning to the end is very well done. Looking forward to more from you!
