Hey, it's Frosty from Taco's stream chat earlier this week.

Love the ambiance and the art design. The story is charming and fun. Pretty clever map design and a nice difficulty curve with the new mechanics to get you to previously inaccessible places. Very nicely done. The best part of the game is the unique battle system. It's intense and actually difficult. There's only a couple battles in the game so every battle felt different and meaningful. I liked the variety in spells and movement.

The maze area is a bit too long in my opinion. It takes as much time as the rest of the game combined.

It's a fantastic game and you obviously put a lot of effort and "pure heart" into it. Haven't beaten the maze yet. I found 3/4 switches before stopping. Going to edit this when I do.

Wow, thanks for playing! I'm glad you enjoyed it. 

I appreciate the feedback on the dungeon because I haven't received any feedback on it so I wasn't sure about the difficulty. I'm curious which switch you haven't found yet. Let me know how you like the ending if you decide to complete it.

I couldn't quite beat the Lady Bora fight after a few attempts. Keeping track of all the different enemy patterns is tricky! Very well executed game, though, and I love the concept and atmosphere. The protagonist's personality was cute too.

Sorry about the difficult spike. It was hard to balance the gameplay since there are only 12 battles in the game. 

Thanks for the compliments! :D

Really pretty looking game. Music when walking is soothing and pairs perfectly with the colour pallet. 

Best part by far is the combat system which feels really intense and interesting. You are constantly dodging and weaving enemy spells to try and get a time to strike. Getting a boss to low health and getting the magic hit on them feels rewarding.

Really nice job on this :)
