Don't ! Heroes : Encore!

The world needs your help ! After a slumber of a thousand years, the Source of Evil is back, along with hordes of monsters.  Only a few chosen heroes might be able to defeat them... 
As the spirit of wisdom, you can help the heroes in their quest, but the only way you can interact with them is by saying "No" ! 

Prevent the heroes bad actions to defeat your opponents. Don't refuse their choices too often, or they will get out of your control !

Will you manage to defeat the Source of Evil and restore peace ?

Genius game, from the art direction to the game design. Had an absolute blast playing this! This is gunna be something I'll be referencing in game dev discussions for years, I can feel it, hahaha

Fun game for a small playthrough. The art is gorgeous. Is there a secret if you don't kill the golden fairy or something?
