    Very Wind Waker-esque art style. Sounds like a nice mix of elements.

    Umm... I do! ^^

    How do you actually... play the game? Is it like sims-style where you are a benevolent deity overlooking and controlling a bunch of puppets, or are you following a single character?

    Based on the information in this thread, I have no idea. >_<

    And the big question - what kind of pricing model are you considering/implementing?

    Good question! You control a single character. You can dress up this character, change its nose, make it bold etc. Also: hats!

    You walk around the village talking with villagers, helping them out with little quests. There is also a small farm you have to work on to grow crops. Other things you can do is decorate the complete island and even your own house.

    Because the game uses a real time 24 hour clock there will be special events on specific dates or times. So you might have to play this game in the evening to get a certain item. Or you will want to check the stock prices in the morning to see if there is any movement on the stock market.

    If our latest game Ichi sells enough we might also add multiplayer. You can than visit eachothers village and play together. Or you can cut down all the trees and steal their crops.

    p.s. Where is the touch arcade review for ichi? :D

    Looks very similar to Animal Crossing. Had fun with that back when it first came out so I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one
