Hey all! So today going to be something a little bit different that I've wanted to try out for a while. I'm just going to be talking about a game with no real rhyme or reason to it! Because it's fun.
As most of you know, I'm a big fan of Eager Passion, the one-gal studio run by Artsy Sayuri. She made Wings of Glass, which I would get around to properly playing and reviewing, but I've been busy if you can't tell. I'll try and get around to it soon as I can, it's not like Mayfly is in this game anyways. No, this game, called Feathery Ears 羽耳 or Feather Ears Hane Mimi is very different to Wings of Glass.
Just a head up, most of my Wings of Glass experience comes from the Demo, which was known under Glass Wing Capstone.
Sayuri is still working on what she calls "Wingsverse", but is making this game in a month. In the image above with the Logo is the protagonist Misa Ikko, a character in the story drawn by Ashley Dengara, a ninth grader. I am already in love with this idea. Exploring the mindset of teenagers trying to design characters is a great idea, honestly it looks like Misa fits right in with the game. I do hope that we can get some of Ashley's perspective on things though out the story. And despite being about questionable teen character design, the game visually looks great, even though it's re-using some of Wings of Glass assets, mainly the source code, so I don't expect too many differences in art style.
The gameplay it's self seems to be a more combat focused Wings of Glass. For those that don't know, in Wings of Glass, you had the same tools, but they were weaker and used only for puzzles, and you mostly use stealth to get around hazards in the game.
Here weapon seem more powerful, and it seems like you have all the abilities in Wings of Glass, so it should be an solid action-platformer. Misa also seems to be interacting with a lady shark called Coral, an NPC in the game. I hope that we get more NPC's that are unique her.
Overall, I 'm really looking forward to this game, and I really want to see where this game goes! Teenagers are super creative, and I want to see how she interprets the idea. If you want to try out Wings of Glass, you can buy it from the links at the bottom(one is for Steam, one is for Itch.Io), and these link are NOT affiliate links, I just like the game.
THIS WAS VERY FUN TO WRITE! I want to do something like for a while, just spouting bulls**t on something that I love. I will do more of these for sure! In other news, TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!! I'M 18! Thanks to everyone that's I've met over the past 2 years, you all are awesome in your own ways.
But for now, thanks for reading, and to quote Sayuri herself:
Be creative and have fun. Hugs and headpats for everyone!
Take care guys.
