    Looks beautiful.

    Not too sold on it being a rhythm game, though. I think I'll still get it on Steam.

    The game is not solely rhythm.
    It merges quirks from adventure and RPG games, and takes rhythm plays for certain story progressions.
    It's a really neat and unique game I gotta say, I suggest you guys at least give the demo a try :)
    And if you like the concept, then consider keeping tabs on it for the full game release!

    The rhythm thing wasn't obligatory on Mother 3, you could just grind instead.

    So no thank you.

    This is getting a lot poorer feedback than I hoped. Oh well.

    Is a rhyming game that's not even a sequel to a popular rhyming game.

    While people does want another Earthbound like game, they want a RPG not a game were you win fights by pressing buttons at the right time.

    Clearly you never learned about Timed Hits.

    Nothing to worry about here fellows.
    Insert collective sigh of relief from villains.

    one thing is a timed hit like paper mario where hitting A when jumping or right time you get afew higher damage points or dodges, thios from the trailer is full on rhythm , just from the trailer this is way more than timed hits lol, heck the creator itself syas its a rhtyimn rpg game so no this isnt just timed hits, goes way byond that there is places on trailer that even looks like a guitar hero portion.

    so yeah i pass on this kinda off games really easily.

    I didn't recall having to create poetry when I played the demo. When did that happen?

    Title of topic: "Starstruck: Prologue, a free game by Earthbound hacker, releases onto Steam"

    Wasn't a misleading or click bait title, it said exactly what it said, you just need to ensure you're reading things more coherently.
