It’s why, understandably, each side often does its best to avoid the situation entirely. But you lack such a choice when camping, an event where all parties are next to each other, and that’s where Wide Ocean Big Jacket sets itself.

I played this this evening it is: nice

I specifically wanted to note I enjoyed the physicality of the walking animations - hunching up when they’re walking uphill, kind of awkwardly bouncing when they’re walking downhill. it’s really nice, I enjoyed it.
