Ever wanted to play a small, fluffy were-bunny who sees biting, headbutting and loud exclamations as the solutions to life’s problems? If so, hop this way. ^_^, ben304’s latest contribution to the world of indie adventure games, is almost excessively cute. In ^_^, you’ll be playing as Julian. According to a rather odd-looking apparition, Julian is supposed to be the progenitor of the were-bunny species, a responsibility that Julian really doesn’t want. As such, you’re going to have to figure out a way to transform back into a human being.
It’s a lot of nonsensical fun. The supporting cast is about as eccentric as they get. There is, among other things, a witch who will only help you after you’ve found her errant, enchanted locks, a musical note that serves as the face of a bank and even a vampire who refuses to awaken even if you chomp on him repeatedly. That said, the best part about ^_^ is probably the dialogue. Julian’s innocence and straightforward approach to life will likely have you giggling incessantly to yourself.
In all seriousness, though, ^_^ is just what you need to brighten your day. Before you do anything else this evening, get yourself a cup of hot cocoa and help Julian headbutt his way back to human form.
