This looks Great. Weird but cool!!

With the right level of fun/Cheekiness it could be a real hit.

Looking forward to it!!!

Let's not forget the bunnies or robots or purple fluffy things.

...ouch. We'll probably make some changes before release, but we're definitely keeping this style. We were going for a "painted storybook" look... In fact we hand-painted all the art assets using Brushes on the iPad.

Can you maybe be more specific about what you'd like to see improved?

the grafic itself aint bad
but for example on the fight screen it would be nice to have a horizont and then a background not just a green
i dont like the design of the floor ( the grass ,the earth and the ocean)
in the city (where the houses are ) should be a street e.g.
the ocean is only a blue colored , there should be some waves imo
you should maybe add some additional effects like smoke which comes out of the house
or animals running across the screen or swimming in the water
will add some points when i got more time

Ah, yes, definitely planning to add overworld animations -- didn't have the assets in time for the teaser. In general the town screen is the least developed in the teaser. We actually have 5 cities in the game, each with its own distinct look and feel, but the cities are the most complex areas in terms of design (lots of NPCs and quest-triggered events, etc) so they're not ready quite yet.

We'll be sure to make a more complete trailer when we're closer to launch.

Thanks for the feedback!

sounds cool

are there also sidequests/minigames in the game ?
are there ways to travel faster ( like a bycicle or train system ?)

btw will you make a closed beta to give you feedback and find bugs?

Yes, there are sidequests. Don't want to say too much, but hopefully there's enough to keep people's interest. We'll also release additional quests/storylines in updates after the initial launch.

No, there aren't really mini games, not outside the battle system. (In the teaser you can see they start to play Tag, for instance.)

Yes, there is a subway system that can take you from city to city, but only after you invest in-game money. (Ie, you have to get to the city the hard way first.)

Closed beta: Absolutely! We're not quite ready for playtesting yet, but we want to start as soon as we have all of the levels designed and a few final touches applied (like the missing animations you astutely noticed). We'll probably start playtesting before we code the multiplayer features, though.

Great questions! Keep 'em coming!
