I loved the concept behind facing your own monsters and that the last boss might symbolise that after facing many monsters that you have to also face yourself, a past self, one that you have to defeat and somewhat let go to bloom into a new self.


As someone with goldfish memory, the game is actually quite difficult at the last stages =)) but it's fun at the same time. I love how the caterpillar turned into butterfly is metaphoric for a person's transformation once facing their own monsters.
