It's a very Taijitu game, I think.

I liked the game but I couldn't play it for more than a few hours for some reason.
Today's date is: Today is Isidi, 23 Gaïôse AR 4 - Day 1240 of the Glorious Revolution

Many trials make manifest
The stranger's fate, the curses' bane.
Many touchstones try the stranger
Many fall, but one remains.

I've been wanting to play this because, it seems interesting but, is it really worth the money is what I want to ask :)

Though, I'd like to try for game design sake, should I invest in this?

You should always invest in this kind of games but you should never expect much return on your investment. One of those I don't regret investing was Zeno Clash, I supported it very early on and it became a retailed game with a sequel or w/e it was. That said, many other independent games I've invested, specially "early access" were terrible investments.

This game is nice, good refreshing concept, but this will have as much playability (and replayability) as minesweeper for the awesome ammount of money that I've described above...which is too much for the game that it is imho. Still, always nice to support he little guy.

This game is a full game with a full story that can be replayed over and over again. They even have an endless mode!

Christ Delfos, it's definitely worth the 9.99 price tag, and I'd pay 19.99 if he set it that high. Don't listen to Delfos. 10 dollars is reasonable for a game, it's almost like buying a good interactive book, and books these days are fifteen or twenty dollars at full price. 4.99 and 9.99 are basically the two lowest full price options, and this is for a game that will entertain you for a good long while. Sure it's no Skyrim, but it's also not at a Skyrim price. It's original, it's goofy, it's immersive, and it's challenging.
