I like the art style very much. It shows enough uniqueness to be remembered. In spite the architecture could be more detailed and less comic-like. Also the movements of the characters are too fast in my opinion. Sometimes the wolf looks like beeing on speed which reduces its reliability and impact.

I've harped on them about the character movement speed before. But then I figured this is testing so they need to test things FAST. I'm sure they'll address it sooner or later.

I hope start to work with the animations for the wolfs, in my opinion looks very stupid how runs on this video, it will be more cooler (I hope on it) when he run with open hands/arms, for looks more spectacular or something like.

Shinny effects, nice one, will be nice if you mix the normal textures with this effect in a 50% or something like, will be cool the result. :D
