Little Goody Two Shoes is a horror narrative adventure game that’s available on the Switch eShop right now. It centers around the character of Elise who’s exploring a mysterious, fairy tale like world.

In a new interview with Siliconera, the game’s artist Kira elaborates on the game’s influences. It turns out they include some classic anime series.

Little Goody Two Shoes pays a visual homage to iconic shoujo anime from the 90’s, such as Sailor Moon, Magic Knights Rayearth and Slayers, among several others. We wanted to capture the essence of these strong and determined female protagonists in our own story with our main character Elise – this can be seen not only in the way she’s written but also in her character design!

We really wanted to evoke these sentiments not just through the character designs alone, but through the entire visual universe of Little Goody Two Shoes. You can spot how we took inspiration from games such as Legend of Mana and SaGa Frontier, which greatly helped us shape the detailed and colorful world of Kieferberg (Elise’s hometown and where our game takes place).

We can’t forget that AstralShift’s beginnings are deeply rooted in RPG Maker horror games, and that knowledge and experience has undoubtedly shaped Little Goody Two Shoes, from the top-down perspective to the way maps are laid out. It’s a big love letter to the community where we first started our game development journey!
