So far, the plot is a little thin in this game, it seems to consist of people impeding your progress to make you solve a puzzle, but the puzzles have all been really great so far.

For instance, so far into the game I've come across one of those "take animals across a river with a raft but you can't have more of one kind than another on a side" puzzle and the "find which weight is the lightest out of 8 using a scale only twice" puzzle.

So if you like logical and lateral thinking puzzles, and you also like beautiful Miyazaki-esque visuals, this will pretty much be game of the year for you, I'd say.

Hey, if you read the news post he actually likes the game.

Some of the later puzzles (especially the bonus puzzles) will make your brain hurt something fierce. Good lord.

I only heard about this yesterday.

it does sound like the kind "off-beat, non-traditional" game I'd like to see succeed.

I got this on Friday and spent my Thanksgiving weekend in an orgy of Monster Rancher goodness. I actually like the slower raising of five monsters, it keeps the weeks from just disappearing by the way they would in MR2.
