I really liked this game. The style is a lot like that of the GameBoy, and the text box scrolling makes this more apparent. This is also the first game on the site that I've ever played.
Thanks a lot! The text scrolling is definitely based on how it was done on the Game Boy, in Pokémon to be specific ;)
I feel honored my game is the first one you played here! :D
I haven’t played Pokémon, but what it reminded me of was Link’ Awakening, most specifically “Wow, this looks really heavy, you won’t be able to move it with your bare hands!”
Oh yeah it's quite similar to Link's Awakening too and it's definitely one of my biggest inspirations! The jumping out of bed is also a bit of a nod to that game ;)
Btw, saw your review too. You can exit the game by pressing Enter to show the ingame menu and select Quit ;)
