Theme(s)
I understand that most of you probably won't be able to play/rate it because it requires VR. No worries. Here's the full playthrough video:

"My very best friend": Often, magical girls have a cute non-human companion that grants her magical powers. Magical girl Violet's very best friend happens to be a very lovable monster with many tentacles and eyeballs. She's got to keep it alive.

"I was stupid, so stupid": Lure other magical girls into fighting you near the monster's tentacles, which will drain their life force and restore its own. Good thing that the other magical girls are kinda stupid and will attack you instead of the monster if you are closer to them than the monster.

The urban destruction scene is inspired by Puella Magi Madoka Magica's epic battle scene from episode 1 (As If I Met Her in My Dream... Or Something), and the Walpurgisnacht battle scenes. I watched the whole series and the movie while taking breaks from jamming! It was an amazing show.

This came out really well! I love the Macross-esque flying battles. Great music, too!

This looks really good! Unfortunately I don't have my VR setup right now so I can't try this. Is the playthrough video up yet?

Wow, there's a lot more to this than I thought there was! I didn't realize it had stages with specific objectives.

Finally... a more proper submission to this jam... Though unfortunately I do not have VR to test the game -- so I only read the description and wow the concept is so creative. Although I cannot play the game, all I will say is well done :O
