Makes with the working


  • Unity screen of nope.
  • So you know the in-game options menu will consists of volume sliders.
  • WHAR vsync option?
    • Alright, turns out there’s no VSYNC.
    • It can hit 70+ if you set the graphics to fugly.
  • It really struggles to maintain 60 at 1080.
  • Lacks English English


  • Seriously guys?  I thought we were done with this
  • Struggles to maintain 60 at 1080.   Some stuttering issues


  • It got to a certain point where I couldn’t type the blue words.
  • Also, whenever I hit the sprint button the fox would start so fast it was impossible to control, even though I hadn’t even spent a single point on the speed increase tree.
  • Tried setting LC_ALL=C, since this is a Unity game after all, and it reset my progress.
    • And it didn’t fix the typing issues.
  • And I’m not the only one: http://steamcommunity.com/app/398850/discussions/0/361787186419372303/
  • Review time is here and they still haven’t fixed it


Shiny / Sounds


  • The overworld is FK mothering gorgeous.
  • Bright colour pallette
  • Not much in the way of voicework but the main lass does a proper job.
  • It’s got a nasty case of the jaggies.


  • I dig the origami style
  • When the unfoldy animations show up, so does the jaggies
  • It certainly sounds like a lady reading a story.  Boy does she read it


  • Whar anti-aliasing?
  • Why can’t I disable depth of field?




  • Does NOT work with my Nintendo Power Pad!
  • Is there a way to control the camera?
  • At least you can use WASD


  • Seriously, how am I supposed to play this game with the steam controller
  • It’s nice that they give you a couple options on how to move
  • The recommended navigation controls would give VI nightmares
  • The sprint button is a suggestion key


  • If I had to pick at nits on the controls is that, even though the mouse doesn’t get any use outside of menu navigation, they couldn’t figure out how to hide the cursor in-game proper.




  • It’s a game for kids O or adults that genuinely hate themselves.
  • Never thought I would rage-quit a typing game but here we are.
  • The baddy swarm at the end of the first dungeon got serious.
  • The problem with being a touch-typer is having to glance at the keyboard to calibrate my finger organs.
    • This is not because lazy but because only having 8/10% feeling in my left hand.
  • Eh, it caused me to squint and say “oh, let’s dance, FKR”


  • I haven’t had this much stress typing since my DCN 386 Final.  And that was Fifteen page essay
  • See, my problem is that I have to read what’s on screen.   That can be a wee problematic when there are dozens of things are piling at you and you’re focusing on processing the word you’re supposed to be typing
  • My fingers keep defaulting to WASD, which also adds some delay
  • At one point I literally had to type “owowowowowowowow” to unlock a chest
  • And it bugged out on me, because it’ll let me type one part of a puzzle, but not the other
    • That’s cuz it’s b0rked yo.
    • You literally can’t progress past that point because the game is broken.


  • This game will teach you the meaning of hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia.
  • Or, should I say, it would if you could progress past chapter two.
  • What this game does do, is bring out the vituperator in me.
  • Pair that with my inherent coprolalia and you’ll probably thank whatever deity you worship I’m cutting the fun segment a bit shorter than usual.
  • Just like the developers did with this game.
