There were definitely some thumb blisters along the way. Joycons turn my hands into aching claws. And my gaming motor skills are still pretty bad.
I didn't think I could finish a game this hard unaided. But I did! And the game...like...teaches you how to persevere. How to fail and fail and fail and fail and still have fun, and try again.
I, uh, really needed that.
Where was this game when I was a kid?

in case you ever wondered which parts of the peninsula have top rated schools* and are not in a flood plain, wildfire-prone, or noisy af... I have a map for you!
* the rating metrics are crappy and mostly measure how white and wealthy the place is, but I don't have personal experience with all the school attendance zones, so, yeah
