So last night ended a little rough. Completely from out of nowhere I got these terrible stomach cramps and I’m just gonna… omit what followed, but it was bad. I had to completely abandon the dinner I was in the middle of cooking for poor Christopher, and it took me a full two hours to recover. In the end Christopher made me a biscuit with butter and some scrambled egg and tea, and that rejuvenated me. But it spoiled our evening overall. 😞
Today I’m still not 100%, but better. Kinda. I hope I don’t take another bad turn as the day goes. I have so much to do…
I ended up playing more Giraffe and Annika in bed, so I have a few more screenshots to share:
It truly is a lovely game, very relaxed… the best part has to be the music, it’s so Ghibli-esque, and Anikka is such an utterly adorable character.
I did get to my first boss battle, and gosh I sucked at it (though I did win by button mashing). Battles are a rhythm game, and that is not my forte. I cannot keep a beat to save my life.
There are also “cards” to collect as you go along, called “Meowsterpieces”:
The story starts off very cryptic and still is for me, but it’s become clear in a comic snippet and by this dialogue that Giraffe is quite a bit older than Annika:
So yeah, defeated a boss and learned how to jump, I am also able to replay the rhythm games now, so perhaps I’ll improve. ^_^;
I have a few more entries in drafts so hopefully I’ll get them posted today.
