The character models and animations look janky as fuck, which is a shame since the world itself looks great and a Mitsuda soundtrack is a major selling point...

Honestly, as long as the story is good, and the overall game is solid, I don't care (too) much. Getting something done at this scale with the polish that Square games usually have would require the kind of money that Square usually throws behind their biggest games, which I'm guessing they dont have.

Yeah true, and I've been interested in this since I first heard about it years back, or at least it feels that long, can't remember exactly when lol. I'll most likely still be picking it up, since graphics in general are the last thing on my mind when I'm playing an RPG, give me a good story and soundtrack and I'm sorted :P

I've played the game in early access off and on for the past couple years. Seeing the progress being made has been interesting. It's come a long way. I enjoy the battle system.

Gamepass, so I'll probably give it a go but never heard of it before.
