I really do like this game after trying it. I didn't like the early dialogue and just tried to do side quests for the sake of earning cards, but once the game gets going and the town opens up it won me over. Starting with the frogs, but particularly once you've done yoga and had your picture taken.
Earning cards is fun and encourages you to do the rpg Talk To Everyone. There's a day-night cycle but no time limit, people move about, and there's fun and unexpected ways of interacting with them.
There's a good variety of minigames, *mostly* optional, mostly rhythmic, always just using the arrows and one button. I don't like all of them, but I love some of them and don't hate any, which yknow is more than you can say for most minigame-focused games. I had a few minor problems, like there's a bit of the (very funny) Poster minigame where it seemed to tell me to go left, but I actually had to go up. If you can't do timing action commands then you can't play this game, which is something to know going into an RPG.
There's also a good amount of Background Lore that I don't pay attention to but I'm sure someone would enjoy. maybe you. I support the taxi drivers going on strike? Good for them?
It's a good game! thank you for making it :)
