"I’m not in any way, shape, form, or doodle of a mechanical steampunk owl creature writing this one off. It’s positively packed with promise, so I’m eagerly awaiting its May 2013 drop date. Which is very soon! Hurrah!"

"Ballpoint pens: bad for math class, good for having a gorgeous visual aesthetic in a game."

"...with the ability to customize and upgrade your ship, and explore the doodle realms on foot to meet a number of eccentric characters. [...] This is definitely one to watch out for."
