Trees in snow.

This game is gorgeous. The landscapes in this game are super gorgeous. The composition of the landscapes in this game are maximum gorgeous. I’d say something about the flowing hand-drawn animation in this game, but I’m out of escalating modifiers to tack onto gorgeous.

The landscapes and foliage here remind me very strongly of the work of Eyvind Earle. If you look at some of his works, you might see the resemblance too. An excellent choice of starting point, if you ask me.

It’s a style that strikes me as rather unique in games, but if banish all sense of wit from myself I guess I can see how somebody might confuse the game’s branding with this.
