And this is the one-minute version, for those who can't be bothered to read the long one or would appreciate a summary:

Anime Princess Celestia-Samus and a lame balloon-fairy sidekick save the Great Japanese Deku Tree and his forest. Throw in a mute character you've met for <2 minutes, kill him, and then call it emotionally charged storyline. Put all of the budget into art and soundtrack, and call it retro so you can take advantage of one of the easiest buzzwords in gaming while developing nothing new in regards to entertaining mechanics. This game is boring and repetitive and tries to justify a $20 purchase with having 800 shades of bluish-purple and a downtempo new-age soundtrack. It will become a cult classic, inspire dozens of fanfictions, influence the future of softcore anthroporn galleries, and make "indie" game of the year.
