Not a super-huge fan of the GBA-esque graphic style, but everything else looks super charming, and it's clear the developers are putting a lot of passion into this project. And hey, I'm always down for a Mario and Luigi spiritual successor. Consider me interested.

kinda agree with the other posters post about the graphics style, and im more specific with it that the enviroments overall could be a good thing to out a bit more time into (looks very gammakerish or whatever the engine is, generic when it could stand out a bit more).
