Might be too casual and too easy, however I'd pick this up on PWYW. I hope the game isn't overly short though.

I've played this and it's beautiful, and maybe the most wholesome metroidvania (kind of) ever. I will say that I did not find it to be too easy. It wasn't Dark Souls but it was a challenge.

I do have one thing to confess.. I rage quit Marvin's Mittens.

Agreed, this game is lovely. I got it from another bundle somewhere and despite what I do for most indie games (backlog them because I don't have time), I actually played this and it's has a nice Charlie Brown-esque art style, great theme song, and enjoyable atmosphere. It's quite relaxing to play.

I have this game. While it looks very neat and nice, its 100% game for CHILD.

That's what I was afraid of at first, but I've heard it's actually quite difficult. Seems like it's more 'family friendly' than aimed specifically at children. I haven't played it though, I don't know.
