Mmhmm, I also feel what is so bad it's good has many interpretations, so I sort of went with a realistic approach when a game looks promising, it reaches... doesn't quite get there. Though I did kinda like my plot that a sequel nobody wanted might come underway, I even bought the pirate ship tiles today xD
Glad you feel it was well written! I had fun with this story, and it was a nice break as I do typically write fairly more serious stories. I love comedy of course, but another thing I love are dark fantasy and post-apocalyptic. I loved how in this I was able to get dark and dramatic while still not taking itself too seriously everywhere else.
Yeah, I notice that too. I wanted the parents to be more involved, plus come on, Callie is a badass mother and Bobby is so laid back and devoted, Plus the cheesy romance between the two, so precious.
I am glad you liked Amina's voice~ I've always wanted to voice a mysterious damsel in distress that is actually quite powerful when their power is returned lol. One of the "borrowed" (aka ripped off on purpose) elements of this story was the whole fragmented heart thing was from one of my fave CLAMP stories, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle and the confusing plot twist is sort of poking fun at Clamp's tendancy to confuse the hell out of you with their heartbreaking reveals. Then the whole crystal thing was a nod to early Final Fantasy, only instead o crystal revival, you take the power lol. But yeah, voice work is so fun and important to me, I feel not enough indie titles (especially free ones) have it, so I intend to change that a little~
Ah that is good, I love talking to fellow devs too! It's a lot of fun and beneficial.
