Cute dino. Good luck finishing this, I could see this going good directions. :)

This feels like a game that got really cramped by the time limit. I nodded along with the plot and then went "that's it?" at what seemed to be the end. Congrats on your first game, though — you made a coherent thing with a beginning, middle, and end. Good job. :)
I dig that I was able to take a decent guess about what the characters are like even though I've never played any Ace Attorney games. Also I like your safeword/skip-this-scene mechanic; if I have time I'm definitely going to replace the one I have with a persistent button like this game has. One thing I think is a failing — the music/audio cues are, to my ear, kind of overbearing and loud. The whole time I was playing, I was thinking, "could the audio just chill out and let the game stand on its own?"
Cavorting with sneks is a good place to be. I like the rhythm that the shopping segment sets up — the back-and-forth makes it easier to not get overloaded on the waves. It would be good to have an out-of-game reference for the keys/moves, though, or to be able to pause and look at them.
There's a lot of room for fun stuff with potions and scrolls, but I had a hard time finding that stuff because I ran into the crash-on-item-pickup problem a few too many times. Good luck refining this. :)
Every time the narrator/protagonist spoke, they sounded like they were about to cry. :( But it was still hard to care about them? I can see something interesting coming from this islands-in-the-dark kind of setup, but that protagonist just fell flat for me.
This is a gleefully unsubtle game, and I dig that it's so clear on its own mission. I also dig that it's bite-sized: it knows how big the concept is, executes on that, and declines to stretch it out.
The critter is definitely cute and colorful. Could use some explanation of what kinds of interaction are possible? I clicked around in an exploratory way and didn't feel like I was able to find the full range of ways it was possible to color the critter.
