"Bug Fables borrows some ideas from other games, but the execution is fantastic, making the most of them. Behind its cartoony art, lies one of the best indie RPGs of the year."

I wrote an insanely long blog post about this game here https://aldelaro5.wordpress.com/2020/01/21/exhaustive-review-bug-fables-the-everlasting-sapling-an-underknown-masterpiece-with-paper-mario-flavors/ but the gist of it is this is the only game that managed to blow my mind as hard as TTYD and even harder. As Paper Mario inspired game, it transcends it. As a turn based RPG, it's one of the best ones you'll play with only a bit of imperfections that doesn't even come close to disturb its quality. I have about 800 hours (500+ recorded on steam) and I still cannot get enough of it. It is INSANE they sell it for this cheap!

I absolutely love this game! It feels like Paper Mario done right, but is unique in its own sense. Great story, unique artstyle and the characters are very lovable. Recommend this game to anyone who loves TTYD or cute cartoon style games.

After playing Bug Fables, it became one of my favorite games of all time. I don't say this lightly. This game is just absolutely phenomenal on nearly all fronts, and it's honestly astounding that this game is Moonsprout's first project. I have so much that I want to say about this game, it means so much to me. I've bought it countless times to gift to other friends and people because I want to have others give it a try. By all means, it's not a perfect game, but it oozes with so much character and charm and the amount of quality content in this game is phenomenal. You can tell that this was a passion project. The gameplay is super awesome and intuitive to pick up, and when you get a hang of it, it REALLY rewards you. The action commands are fun; action commands are special micro games the game makes you do to get full damage out of your attacks, and when defending it's real time and based on timing, which helps keep stuff engaging. There’s also hard mode which you can get right at the start of the game that is able to be toggled on and off at any time, which is nice if you’re looking for the challenge, or want to experiment with the difficulty! The game’s hard mode also gives some extra free rewards for beating bosses on hard but you can get them on normal as well (there’s no missables for 100%!) This really lets you experiment with your difficulty, and the fact it's a toggle is awesome! The music in this game is also a BOP! And I've listened to many of its tracks hours on end. There's honestly so much great stuff in Bug Fables, and I could probably go on and on about it. I seriously hope that this game gets more recognition. Especially with how often it goes on sale, it's an absolute steal. Please give it a shot!

bug fables is a turn-based RPG, it is heavenly inspired by the original 2 paper Mario games, it uses a similar badge mechanic as well as similar graphics and combat. but this game does not simply take and use the paper Mario formula it improves on it, you can change the order of each character and badges can be equipped by any party member. each move has a unique QuickTime event you must complete in order to attack, as well as a block feature. it is a well-made and enjoyable RPG with the option to choose from really difficult hard mode and not so difficult normal mode. be warned Hard Mode is Hard I died dozens of times and at least once in each boss fight. if you liked the first 2 paper Marios or just RPGs in general you will like this game.

Solid turn based combat, very similar to Paper Mario gameplay and art style wise but that is part of the charm. Dialog was funny and the main characters are interesting. The game is a little easy but thankfully you can get an item which makes the game harder right from the get go.
