First of all this is an absolutely gorgeous game which i've just spent an hour playing, thank you so much for bringing this delight into the world :)
Secondly, I was wondering if you'd played any of the point-and-click adventure/puzzle games by Amanita Studios? This reminded me of Samorost and Botanicula in particular, what with meeting all the different types of people and the richness and variety of the worlds. If you havent played them, definately do! they're just as beautiful and relaxing to play as yours is
Ive been wanting to make a game like this (free roaming through different environments, meeting characters and understanding the world as you go) for a while but havent got any game development experience, and only the tiniest bit of coding knowledge. I read that you used Unity for this, was it fairly easy to use or did you previously have game dev experience?
Any advice you could give would be welcome, thanks again for making such a wonderful game to experience <3
