Hello! I just purchased the full version of The Vale: Shadow of the Crown. I'm only about 15 minutes into the game, and am already extremely impressed and very excited to continue. The voice actors are already doing a great job, and I have enjoyed the two combat scenarios I've encountered so far.
One thing I noticed is that it's hard for me to know when a "cutscene" is happening (and thus I have no control over my character), versus when I have control as a player. I'm finding that my lack of agency during those cutscenes somewhat frustrating.
I'm so, so happy that someone has made an audio-first game. Hearing the wagon sounds and the mill sounds gave me chills.
