Finished Bug Fables recently, and while I will admit it has it's flaws, it was a great game. Much better than I antecipated.
The story, the narrative and yes, even the combat is all great. Never liked the '' old'' Paper Mario, and neither the ''new'' ones, (the only good Paper Mario is Super Paper Mario for me), but damn this game got me going.
So yeah, I feel like this game biggest sales problem was related to it's marketing, because I see few people talking about it.So go give it a try!
Edit: Gonna put Arlo's review here to give the game more context on what the game is about:
My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.
