Amazing, but... (Fix pls)
I really do enjoy this bundle of fun, I really do! But I found a little impossible loop that I can't get out of. As you play, you change forms. To change form, you need to collect 3 of the same parts of an animal to change to that form. I had 2 owl pieces (which I never gave back to the being who gave them to me, taking 2 spots of 3 spots out of the inventory), and I entered the area that is supposed to make you change into a bird. For some reason, I decided to walk past the birds who give you bird parts, and I walked through the floating paths that take you to a small loop where you get the 3rd bird piece. Sadly, I didn't pick any up, and it's a one way journey, so I'm stuck between two rooms with an unpassable door (which is for the bird). I have no way of giving back he other two pieces I brought into the journey from another area, and I guess I wasn't supposed to bring it to where I am stuck now, but, I am definitely stuck. Game developers, please create a settings or menu that could let you go back to your start please, or fix this! I really enjoyed this game, and it's sad that I have to delete the game because of the loop I'm stuck in.
Bizarre and delightful
My first few minutes with the game had me so befuddled I didn't know if I'd be willing to finish but as I explored I found myself absorbed in the mechanics that I was learning. In most games satisfaction comes from solving puzzles which is true here too but I the same feeling as I discovered how things work. The lack of instructions seems oppressive at first but there is nothing cheap here like in other games that have trick answers to the riddles. Good show. I love it.
I feel this game is trying to emulate what the universe would look and act like if dinosaurs stuck around. And they've done an amazing job at that. It is a great experience walking through a world that is absolutely nothing like ours. I started off super confused then quickly understood what I was meant to do. I would highly recommend this bizarre but beautiful game.
