SINoALICE

Yeah, the art doesn't just "look Taro-ish."

That's the Seraphic lettering appearing everywhere. The pseudo-Angel alphabet that often appears in four-letter combos in NieR (A,C,T,G) suggesting that "The Scrawl" is a virus affecting your DNA with this altered lettering.

Forgive me for jumping to conclusions, but a bunch of books and Seraphic lettering from Yoko Taro suggest to me that this is a dead ringer -- it's a side-story in the NieR / Drakengard worlds.

Also a mobile game. That's basically where I stopped...

I hope you've noticed a trend that "good" (quality) mobile games that perform well in sales/downloads tend to get ported to other platforms. No reason to be pessimistic.

Seriously, who would've expected "FF Mobius" on Steam? But there it is nonetheless!

It's not about the platform, it's whether or not it will be yet another F2P scam, just like the venerable plague that is choking out the mobile market. The moment mobile devs stop telling me when and how long I can play their games (unless they just explicitely call it a demo), is the same moment I might consider giving them some respect again.

Fair enough. Though for my part I haven't experienced that. But then, my mobile purchases are limited to the CAVE library, Dragon Quest I-III, the Bar Oasis games, and the first Shin Megami Tensei. Oh and FF Dimensions.

None of them let me down. Not a one.

Yes. Because you bought them, and they gave you a full game - no timers, no bullcrap. I know, I've played most of them myself. I really wish there more of them, and I will give this game the time of day if they confirm it as such.
