Atmosphere is at a level where I want mine to be, fantastic. Suggestions:
The atmosphere is excellent. The art style, animations, grainy texture filter, the music and sounds, all wonderful. Controls feel pretty good. Diagonal movement could be good. I forgot about left-alt and then was totally stranded, unsure what to do next after I picked up my bag. I had to restart the game to see what I missed. When you hold left or right, hitting up or down doesn't overwrite that. Takes a second to see where the new text starts, wish the most recent text was highlighted somehow. Going in houses is awesome, that's a great idea.
Keep going with this, it's already very cool, and I feel compelled to explore the town more. Do this game justice!
Looking forward to this game. Really good start, pretty nice subtle tutorial, though list of all commands is lacking. I really like the text input mechanics and combination of top-down and sidescroll view. Art is great, and sound design adds to the mood. I wish there were 'Toggle run/walk' command, it will be useful in large areas.
Nice start, the art is pretty good. A command list in game would be useful (unless there is one and I missed it). Also, having the player move in the direction of the last key pressed, rather than the direction priority it has now, would make movement a bit nicer. I can see a sprint option being useful once more areas of the city open up, too.
