From the artwork and descriptions, I was really expecting a Zelda-like game, but it’s actually Dark Souls in disguise. Combat is repetitive, unforgiving, uses the campfire / potion mechanic, and resets every time you rest. Maps are confusing, the UI and "manual" are obtuse and deliberately misleading - supposedly as part of a puzzle mechanic, but everything works together to just make the game a frustrating experience. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
