Definitely one of my favorite Itch.io games I've played through. I've seen a lot of complaints about controls, but for me, it was simple. W to move, left mouse click to help orient position and right mouse click to look around freely. My only complaints are that I thought visual clues like house indicated specifically which house (oh, this house has two windows next to door) only to realize later it was generic house for hint.
I'd love to see more games done with these graphics and play mechanics. Finding aliens on different planets, finding sea creatures, maybe a general wildlife search. The possibilities are endless. Like Hidden Folks, I also loved the mechanic of interacting with environment to find the cats and yarn, opening windows, trunks, flipping over hats and pots, etc. Oh, and the music for the first Christmas level (with presents and such) was beautiful!
