Blue Port J: Summer Sky Prelude is the story of three girls, an island with a hidden treasure, and mystical insects with curious properties. I bought this game on January 9th, 2014, and fell in love with it as soon as I booted it up. (The game, that is.)

The game offers three different control methods: mouse and keyboard, keyboard only, or gamepad. The mouse and keyboard option is unvable for me. The keyboard only option is a little better, but relies on a control setup that felt awkward for me. The game plays beautifully with a gamepad, however, so that's what I'd recommend.

The levels are detailed and creative, with air pockets placed strategically and tools and skills obtained through the story to bypass obstacles. This game can be fiendishly difficult at times (such as one segment where you need to find your flashlight in the dark and navigate a tunnel maze with few air pockets and starting w/about half your air...drowned so many times), and the puzzles take some abstract thinking and studying to figure out. I even emailed FoxEye himself at one point asking how to solve the last puzzle! (It was incredibly obvious in hindsight. :P)

All in all, Blue Port J is an enjoyable, charming, and interesting little adventure. It all works quite well together, and even after beating the story (~6 hours for me) I spent a lot of time just swimming in the beautiful locales. Highly recommended.

Just make sure you sign up as soon as you buy it. I didn't, and a year after buying, my computer derped and I had to reformat. I need to buy it again.
