Hey okkie, very glad you enjoyed the game!
You actually hit the nail on the head in terms of influences, absolutely love both of those games to death. In hindsight it's kinda funny that I'd make a game inspired by games like those, considering how horrible I am at both of them lmao.
Two playthroughs seems to be the magic number sadly, I was hoping I would have enough good ones for 10-15 minutes of gameplay, but I couldn't for the life of me think of any other good ones :(. I'm hoping I can come up with a lot more suggestions and maybe have a big ol' update in about a month, so here's hoping that adds a little more bang for your buck!
Thanks again for your comment, it means the world to me that someone would take the time to provide feedback on my dumb lil' game :D
