This is the chill thread to talk about your initial impressions or general chat for the game.

PC Gamer wrote an article about The Moon Fields because it's awesome and cool and really really good and amazing.

A couple friends of mine do a podcast out of Minneapolis called Nice Games Club and they have a special edition where they talk about intersections between indie and fighting games. In addition to a few minutes devoted to The Moon Fields they get pretty insightful on breadth vs depth and Smash Bros.

My very first initial reaction to the game was that I was daunted by the number of items. (When I do play games, I tend to play ones that present themselves very simply like N++ or Spelunky). Now that I'm a little more comfortable, I do like what that aspect of the game allows -- I suppose kinda a 2-pronged (bident?) approach to winning:

1. Learn to choose better items for the particular situation.

2. Get better at the mechanics of using those items.

Anyway, I'm enjoying the game a lot -- and it was especially cool to see that PcGamer article!

Thanks Ross!

The "flow" of the game is totally supposed to make you choose between learning how to use certain items better vs. picking different items altogether. I'm curious what kind of items/characters/builds you're happiest with at the moment?

Right now my standard is Vancer with whaleBlade, dropBombs, one of the bows, and barricade shield. Depending how people counter the whaleBlade, I'm thinking I might to get better with one of the faster swords though... And my be-annoying build is Drifter with speed potion and a ton of dropBombs.
