Finished the game today and definitely it turned out to be longer playing than I expected.
I think 15 hours plus. So adding to my earlier impressions....
And the game in day four truly digs deep. The main character Sunny has made a real interpersonal shift through out the game. It just seemed like enough info, encounters, personal growth had accumulated that the mood and atmosphere shifted by the end. There was a real sweetness to the story. I liked that, been a long while to experience charm in a game.
And multiple fully fleshed out endings - what a treat.
This is one of the first games in a long while that I am truly sorry to see ended. Bring on the other side and the DS version.
SO my original comparison to CMI holds true. Maybe even takes its place.
Well done guys, well done.
