Huh? “Ni No Kuni?” Sorry, no idea what you’re talking about. I’m referring to Eric Chahi’s classic Out of the This World, so adroitly described here by one Nadia Oxford.
I love this painting, by the way. It’s like Lester Knight Chaykin is screaming, “GIVE UNTO ME THE EXTRADIMENSIONAL HUGS” while his pal is digging up potato bugs under a nearby rock. Poor Chaykin could probably use some hugs, given how many times he died at my hands. I never did quite finish the game, to be honest; I remember making it to this bit where you had to jump in a tank and use a radically different control scheme than anything in the game to that point, a sort of game design bellyflop that I found as annoying back then as I do today. Don’t let this come across as me slamming the game, though! It’s actually quite rad, irritating quirks aside.
