At first I thought this would be like the usual JRPG bestiary: nice to look at once or twice but no real depth to it. Boy, was I wrong!

The drawings are incredibly beautiful with chracter art that strikes a perfect balance between silliness, cuteness and design that can be taken seriously.  Each character has a unique and charming personality that made the (mostly trial-and-error) dialogue options fun to explore. The diverse soundtrack fits the encounters perfectly: sometimes relaxed, sometimes upbeat, sometimes threatening, sometimes mysterious...the three composers did a great job!

Having played most of the other entries in this jam, I also liked your references to other cartridges of the Famicase exhibition. And the present after completing the bestiary was the cherry on the cake!

All in all: a creative concept turned into a flawless little game. Well done!


Very cute, beautiful game. I included it in my A Game By It’s Cover 2018 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)


Great video! Thanks a lot for including Beasts and Buddies with your jam play through!
