    I’m not sure about this game, one side of me says this looks incredibly interesting, and obviously very unique. The other side says that it will get old fast, and that the touch screen game play is a gimick. Over all I might just give it a try, as long as it receives a retail release. To support the Vita.

      Really, retail? I can’t imagine this being anything but a $10/15 download title. It can’t last that long.

        dokuro says hi^_^

          Hello! Dokuro only got a physical release in Japan/Asia, digital only in the US/EU, at $20. This game seems a lot more experimental with it’s insane touch control use, Escape Plan might be a more relevant example, again digital only.
          I’d be happy to see it be a fully-fledged physical product, but you can’t hold not being physical against it, digital-only is almost guaranteed.

    The trailer gave me some Tim Burton-esque vibes. And while the game looked intriguing enough, that little girl was just plain creepy.

    Most badass game “title” ever. Also, the gameplay intrigues me. Looks like it’s worth a purchase.

  • Lazulis

    Oh god, she’s adorable. When she cries it gives me Mario baby flashbacks.

  • XiaomuArisu

    But somehow still adorable….

  • Ståle Laastad

    looks more like a showcase of the touchscreen and a artslideshow.
    not for me, but interesting concept.

  • Pichi

    Love the art, but concerned about the gameplay. Looking forward for more info.

    Well. THAT ending gave me insane amounts of creeps. I also must admit I did a double take when I saw where the girls mouth was, it’s a… pretty brazen design choice. I wonder if you lose control over her the moment you let go of her hand though, and she walks on autopilot if you don’t manage her.
