TL;DR: This is a really great game, I rate it 10/10. A wonderful time playing it.

Warning: Spoilers into the review. Do not read if you want to play the game and fully discover it.

So, even though you had a bit of direct feedback, I need to put a real review here.

The gameplay is really interesting, knowing that you are sometimes forced to lose is a great thing, because it would be really frustrating otherwise. Also, it is a great thing that our choices have a real impact on how we play the game, it forces to choose everything wisely. I really liked how you took advantage of the "Tru 2D" graphics. It is so harmonious, and not having depth is maybe a bit strange at the beginning (mostly because you're blocked by the trees where you think you wouldn't be), but once you get used to it, it's a really different way of playing and... wow, it feels so great.

I must admit that even if it was made with RMMV, I didn't feel like it was (unless for the menus that are really specific to RM engines) made with it. Sure there were many parts that could tell it was made with that engine, but it feels so unique, it gives a really great feeling after playing it. During the whole game, I was like "damn, that's so nice, I really need to make that positive review for this game". 

The only bad thing is when you are in the little "maze", if I may call it this way. Having only 4 attempts is not enough to me, I would have like to be able to do at least 2-3 more attempts, or at least having the choice to not being guided. I would've tried 100 times if I could, just to make it by myself. Though it's not much of an issue having a limit, because letting you the choice may have no sense story wise. So just letting you have 2-3 more attempts so it doesn't get too frustrating for people who don't like having too many attempts and not too frustrating for those who like to try by themselves would probably be a great idea.

Also, the parts where you may beat that many wisps for the challenge is really cool, as you really try to beat them, even though it's probably lost, you're not like "welp, it's not that bad if I lose".

So, to sum up, I'd say this is a wonderful game, and even though there was one little thing I couldn't enjoy, it really deserves a 10/10.
