Its sort of 2 games in 1. Its a sort of puzzle game/relationship simulator mash-up.
I played through it and while I was impressed with the characters and the story...the puzzle game feels like something that should be in the XBox live arcade...not a $60 release.
The Q-Bert references are valid...the puzzle game part does have the same feel as Q-bert.
Its basically a continuation of the Persona series...if that helps. Much like a spiritual successor.
Not really my cup of tea...but its a good game.
