    I like the choice of Starter, Surskit is one of my favourites :3. I also appreciate how there is an emotional connection to the starter rather than just being given it.

    Some criticisms:
    Spoiler:

    Your mapping seems to be your Achilles Heel, some portions are very square like:



    It could do with a bit more variety: less straight tree boundaries in particular.

    Your use of rocks and hedges is also excessive, generally I wouldn't include rocks far away from a mountain/ledge area as they look out of place. Hedges should probably be used more sparingly and if you want a big hedge use the connectable ones.


    Keep up the good work and I look forward to finding out how the story develops.
    Well, that square-ish area was sort of unfinished ; I'm hardly ever tentative when it comes to placing eye candy in a hack

    The hedges were part of a chain pattern, hence why there's so many of them.
