|I've felt this way about the world sometimes.|
|You, too, will come to find stairs difficult. Consider yourself warned.|
Every element of the game has a refined simplicity: the characters are just little rectangles, but they wobble and bend when they jump; the backgrounds are unobtrusive, but pulse with little symbols and pixels like the inside of a computer program; there is no dialogue, but the story is expertly narrated and brings just the right amount of emotion and humor. The game enjoys a straightforward, no-(some)-nonsense style, but it doesn't use that as an excuse to slouch when bringing life and activity to the details.
|They're a festive bunch, and assembling the team feels kind of cool. Like The Avengers only the characters are, somehow, less two-dimensional.|
|It might feel hard to write a lot of emotional significance into rectangles, but you will.|
