Wow, thank you very much for such a kind and positive review on our game, this have made us very happy!
We are glad so to see you have noticed the efforts put into the polish and feedbacks effects. Indeed, our game is quite simple, but we wanted players to have a good time on it :)
About random encounters, it was the easiest way for us to do in 7 days, but if we continue the game after jam, it will no longer be this way, and you will be able to skip the battles you don't want to do.
You are also the first one to give us a review on the audio/musics aspect as well, thank you very much. We spend quite some times on them, we tried to reproduce Motoi Sakuraba's musics style. However, we apologize for the musics loops, this is an issue from the Gosu library itself.
The Golden Penguin and the team give you 999 XP for this wonderful review. Thanks again!
