It looks cute and polished from the screenshots. I wish it had more information and pictures. I'll give it a try and come back later.

Thank you very much:) I'll make sure to update the game's information to the best of my ability so all sites know what's up. I look forward to your feedback.
 
Saving my progress at a save sage takes seven distinct key presses across eighteen seconds, and I think that really sums up my experience with this game. It looks like an immensely impressive work with oodles of content, but it's so buried under complicated menus and cutscenes that my will is too drained to continue. My save file says *50 minutes* and in that time I think I've encountered maybe three enemies, but I know I've tried multiple ways to get the game to accept my control rebindings, exited the game by accident mulitple times by pressing Esc, and spent a long time wandering around a castle in search of two characters and instead finding lots of empty rooms with no clear gameplay purpose. After I've pressed Esc and want to resume my game, I press Enter a bunch of times... until Enter suddenly arbitrarily stops doing anything and I'm supposed to press Z instead. If I want to Continue, I'm told the game won't let me do that, until I've first tracked down my save file which for some reason it doesn't do by default. This all feels less like playing a video game and more like failing a test.

I recognize that some of my confusion stems from having played Shantae but not Monster Hunter. There are lots of moves and menu systems that I should be familiar with, rather than feeling that they're all dumped on me from the beginning with no explanation. But even when I know how to control the characters, it still takes way too much time waiting for a chance to actually play the game so I know if I'm going to enjoy it or not, even though I'm sure I would enjoy the game part of this experience if I could only find it. This is why Shantae games start with action sequences before they start laying out a storyline. I want to save by pressing at most two keys, possibly even zero.
 
My gripes with the menu mirror those of Violet above me. Sometimes it's Enter, other times it's Z in which case Enter is Back, and I can't make sense of the Options menu. It says the "triggers" are tabs, but my controller isn't recognized at all. I'm sure the game is probably fantastic, but setting it up has been utterly confusing so far.
