S. Jim Browski of movie review website AintItCoolNews.com writes:
|“||The series is innovative in the respect that it pushes the boundaries of the media experience, having a character that exists in not only live action webseries but also within a videogame. I appreciate her innovation, and hope she continues to push the limitations of what the Hollywood machine and media enable her to do. I have enjoyed the series so far and if you’re a fan of the fantasy genre it is another well produced by Felicia Day.||”|
