I have played through the game and beaten it twice and enjoyed every moment of it. I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for something fun and simple to play, while still having enough of a challenge to be interesting. I found the characters charming and the interactions to be amusing and while the story wasn't amazing, it wasn't boring either.
+Nice selection of party members with different skillsets to appeal to any sort of playstyle.
+Really lovely artwork in the battles
+Character interactions are amusing and charming and you definitely can see some growth in the main characters as the quest progresses
+Multiple difficulty modes with choices on encounter rates to please everyone. Also the Rush selection can be great to quickly get through easier battles. Enough challenge to make battles fun but not so much that one feels a need to grind.
+Lots of optional sidequests and hidden things to find.
+Love the friendship dynamic and how having certain people together in a party for a length of time can grant bonuses in battles and give you preemptive attacks.
-A bit on the short side, story is about 20 hours of play
-A couple of broken achievements (though dev has been responsive via email about it)
-Some of the side characters feel tacked on and get little part in the overall story.
Overall, I'd recommend this game to anyone who loves old school styled RPGs and enjoys the RPG Maker style of graphics. Personally, I adore the style of RPG Maker's graphics and do not consider that a fault. The game tells a nice simple story of some fun characters and I had a blast playing it and look forward to playing some more of the dev's other games.
