Playing heavily on the Earthbound feel. Just came out today. I'm probably gonna buy it. I notice it only shows the "Partial Controller Support". I'm a bit bummed that it's not 100%, I guess I'll see how it works, and what is "Partial" about it, when I end up buying it.

Apparently it was a failed kick starter that Atlus grabbed (if I remember the Siliconera article correctly).

Edit:
The game is also available on pretty much every platform in existence.

Had a number of people on my Twitter feed singing its praises. Sounds like a pretty solid game.

I bought it on the Wii U late last night and was only able to play about 10 minutes this morning.

There are little Earthbound Easter Eggs all over. I have a feeling it's going to be a fun game.

I grabbed it on wii U but the load times... omigeerd.

Otherwise it's pretty nifty, just waiting a few seconds here and there really irritates me now.

I bought it last night, but it was still not loaded enough to be playable when i went to bed.

Yeah... I'm going to pass on this one. I didn't like Earthbound (I know, it's blasphemy to say that) so selling it as "heavily influenced by Earthbound" is a great way to make me not want to play your game.

I didn't play earthbound.

I played Citizens for about an hour last night. I was ok. I'd not say it was the best spent eleven gaming dollars but I'll get a couple more hours entertainment from it.

So there's another game that's got that Earthbound vibe (art and gameplay, at least).
http://store.steampowered.com/app/313470/

And, it's on the Indie Royale bundle for another 7 days, 5 games for 3.49
http://www.indieroyale.com/

Probably worth it, the game's got pretty good reviews. And for a mere 3.50

Who are these people that review games having played them for less than 0.8 hours? I mean, if it's a very negative review, okay, I get it, but there are reviews on that page blowing the game's horn from people that haven't even played an hour of it.

You're not really giving me the benefit of your experience, there. You don't bloody have any.

When it comes to indie games there is always the chance they played it before the steam release. Not that they all did but I'm sure it happens.
