Even though I didn’t back the game personally even I admit to have been obsessively following The Guardian’s Spell. I feel an explanation is owed, but chances are we’ll never receive one. In absence of reasoning I’ve been left to my own devices wondering what the heck brought about this end. To be honest, it seemed obvious that something was wrong. After all, in July of the same year they released a little game by the name of Sakura Spirit."
