I was excited for and wanted to like this one, and I recognize that it's a good game for what it is, but it just moves far too slowly for me. The style and art are very cool, and the writing seemed decent as well, and the mechanics are basically what I like, but presented in tedious and inconvenient fashion. Getting around takes too long and performing the various tasks is too overbearing and too much like actual tedium, both in how much of it you have to do and how slow it is. I was just about to look into how much it would cost to craft this thing to do this other thing when it dawned on me that this is it, this is the game, and this is how slow it's going to be and this is how inconvenient everything is going to be. It's gonna have to be a no from me.
