Just Enough Detail

My favorite thing about the game so far is that it has the perfect level of detail. Enough information and art to let your eyes do all the work if you so desire, but if you take it slow, it is all the information you need to really let your imagination run wild. I've always loved ASCII and roguelikes for their ability to make my addled imagination spring to life as if I were 8 years old all over again, and ToME4 is unbelievably good at commanding the theatre of the mind while also being perfectly readable on it's own.

Much love.
