Heh, I was reading your clues, and I think I could have gotten it by around clue 5, but I haven't logged on for a few days.
I really liked DQ Builders 1, and this game looks even better. I am getting way behind on my Switch games though. There are so many I want to play now, and this is one of them. Right now I am starting to lean more toward shorter games. This games looks really good though. Oh well, I'd rather have too many good games to choose from than not enough.
You've guessed enough, the others needed a chance too.
And yeah, it is a good problem to have too many good games too choose from.
