do NOT Get this game if you think it's gonna be like earthbound or something like that, it's just pretentious for the sake of it, also it's REALLY slow, a single normal battle can take up to 4 minutes.

Don't buy Yiiikes the game unless you like awful writing full of prose, uninspired worpd building, garbage gameplay, and a soyboy self-insert protagonist

I just felt like mentioning this, yesterday, seven years ago on February 19th. A girl by the name of Elisa Lam was tragically found do be deceased atop of a watertower in downtown Los Angels. The last known recorded account of this girl before her disappearance was footage from the security camera of an elevator in the Cecil hotel. Her disappearance has gone unsolved ever since 2013. I hope her soul finds peace and that more people will remember this girl's life. I'm glad that Yiik is bringing attention to this story. I hope that it will inspire people to finally solve the Elisa Lam case and bring about justice.

Just got this game the other day. I'm only a short portion into it and I am absolutely in love. Every bit of this game is just bursting with personality. If you are someone like me who has played through the Mother series (Earthbound), I can definitely say that you will enjoy this game. It fills the drago-fang-shaped hole in my heart.

This is supposed to take place in 1999 right? Why does everyone look like current year soyboys, hipsters and tumblr trash? And I played this at a friends house and OH MY GOD the soyboy protagonist will NOT SHUT UP!

1. I remember seeing an ad for this game inside the 2064 R.O.M. game
2. I just hope this doesn’t turn into “Citizens of Earth”
While I did enjoy CoE, it just got repetitive after a certain point.

This game is trash. Game takes forever to load. battles take about 12-14 seconds to load when they happen. don't let the earthbound vibes or trailer music fool you. I had high hopes but now i feel like i wasted 20.00.

I finished the game and honestly thought it was a cool experience. It had the trippy surrealism and setting I was looking for after playing games like EarthBound, Off, and Undertale. The writing, pretentious or not, made me question my own actions and environment in real life. Battle gameplay kept me on my toes even though it got dull and repetitive after a while. Nice characters (execution of Alex along with the climax could have been much better though) Music’s a hit or miss. Some of the tracks are cool while others are “meh”. Overall nice game. I don’t regret waiting 3+ years for it. 8.0/10.0

The conglomerate of a Buzzfeed editor who skimmed the first Scott Pilgrim book and thought it looked really cool then played 10 minutes of Earthbound and thought he got the jist and then tried to make a game with all his hipster indie friends.
Dr Narwhal
Dr Narwhal - 4 months ago
It is actually about a couple of real life events and accounts mixed in heavily with sci fi. Most notably about the Y2K phenomenon, the disappearance of Elisa Lam, and the accounts of Aleister Crowley.

not that it's a good reason but the only thing keeping my from wanting this game is that the main character looks so unrelatable and boring. if there was an option to at the very least play as a girl a la persona 3 maybe i'd be more interested.

I really can’t understand why everyone seems to be hating on this game before playing it. Just because it’s “post-modern” doesn’t mean it’s bad. I have heard some complaints about not liking the main character, which isn’t good, but if the world and gameplay are interesting I’d still be willing to give it a chance.

Its a shame the game is actually super terrible and will have you hating the ginger, the main protagonist and self insert of the dev.
Every game element used is done in such a poor and refined way it only adds to the disappointment.
And i never thought id be able to use the word cringe in the right way. But you will this gsme have you groaning at all the terrible junk it says in an attempt to be witty
