I became addicted to the Swords & Potions games online and heard a lot of references to them taking inspiration from this game in particular. Having played both I can definitely say that without this game, Swords & Potions would probably have never existed.
I spent a few days pretty wrapped up in this game and it was a fun little ride. It's not something you'll play for more than a weekend or two but if you're into more relaxing games that give you a sense of gradually building up a little empire then you'll like this one.
It's a very unique game and one that has its own charm, both good and bad. The sometimes overly long "cutesy" dialogue can be a bit grating and the attempts at humor often feel a bit overwrought, but button mashing past all that never really causes you to miss anything.
Truthfully even though I very much enjoyed the time I spent with this game, I managed to snag it when it was on sale for something like $5. At that price it's an absolute no-brainer - pick it up and spend a few days lost in it next time you're looking for something different to play. At the "usual" price of $20 however, I'm not entirely sure I'd recommend it unless you're really a fan of these types of games. I'd say I got $20 worth of entertainment out of it, but I'm not sure others would agree.
