I know that I am a year late, but I still felt the need to share my thoughts.
I am almost finished with the game, and I have only been playing it for a few days (congratulations). Phoenotopia is one of my favorite RPGs so far. I was trying to describe the game to one of my friends and, before I knew it was your intention, I compared it to Zelda. You have done a wonderful job. Keep up the good work!
