I've been reading up more on the game during my slow hours at business. A lot of people kept saying that it gets harder, but I hadn't seen any evidence of that, until... Your first boss fight in the real world. I'm not going to spoil anything, but this is when the game lets go of your hand. While it wasn't a tough fight, it was the toughest fight so far, and the longest. I can really see this game wanting you to start grinding about this time.
Also, while this game looks kiddy, they say some things that are meant for adults. In the forest, Drippy has a line when you look at some mushrooms, " These aren't the magic mushrooms you eat." There is also a plot of family abuse for one quest. It's great though, and I'm enjoying every moment.
I also wish there where more save points in certain areas. Normally, you can save whenever you want. But when you are in certain areas, you can only save at certain locations. Last night, It took me about an hour to reach one of these save points. Granted, it was a maze forest, but I was ready to go to sleep, and had to stay up much later than I planned. So before you go into what I'm calling, "3D over your shoulder unexplored dangerous areas", it might be wise to make sure you have plenty of time to get through it, or you might just end up losing a lot of progression or being late for something
You can tell when you are in one of these places though from the start, as there is a save at the beginning entrance always. The next save is usually at the end of it.
