This feels so calming to play, like final fantasy 3 if it were on the gbc, but I'd suggest changing the camera sway to really nail that feeling.
The music is super good.
damn, a pink eye 1-shot 2 of my companions (named QT, QT2, and QT3 because I'm extremely creative) that seems a bit harsh for the first encounter I see in the game. But more power to ya if that's how you want it to be.
On the other hand, I see the I don't end up at my last save when I die, but the last church. That's good at least.
Very cute game, good luck in future development.
