This pre-alpha footage video showcases some of the first gameplay mechanics and offers a glimpse of the ambiance that Bye Sweet Carole is made of.
Note: This video reflects early footage and does not represent final product release quality: definitive assets and voice acting (in both Italian and English) will be added at a later date.
Delve into Lana’s transformation into a rabbit, where she gains the ability to interact with other rabbits, and use Lana’s rabbit form to escape from tricky situations! However, exercise caution, as the rabbit transformation renders Lana more vulnerable.
Discover Lana’s best friend: Mr. Baesie. This character possesses both offensive capabilities and the intriguing ability to morph into a smaller version of himself. While not as swift as a rabbit, his downsized form enables Mr. Baesie to manipulate objects effectively. Switch between character on-the-go and make the best use of both Mr. Baesie and Lana abilities and transformations.
A fascinating information: We’ve around 70,000 individual hand-made frames just for in-game Lana!
