@RobertBobert More so some fantasy cliches honestly. Still good potential though. Maybe look at the first hour of the game or something.

Cool setting, might be pretty decent

I must admit I am hoping they sideline the overall action fantasy plot and focus more on the farm life. The studio should play to it's strengths but from what the trailer shows for now it is looking good so far.

@Calal-Chan About the clichés, do you mean the power of friendship between the MC and her best friend or the series of side character subplots?

@RobertBobert I feel so. It has some cliches for sure, but I do feel it has a lot of potential if they adapt it properly.

@Calal-Chan So, this could actually make a varied fantasy story?

May 25, 1:53 AM by RobertBobert

@RobertBobert The plot is a mix between fantasy slice of life and action adventure. It is about 50/50 on both sides though the farming takes a bit longer in the game since well farming lol. The show will 100% be its own niche, but from the trailer as I said before looks nice. It will mostly be pretty chill but have some heavier moments for sure.

@Calal-Chan And how deep is the plot in the game? Or is this just a fantasy slice of life? But one way or another, if this is PA Works, then it is clearly not something superficial.

For the most part this actually looks quite good. As a fan of the game I am happy.
