I really liked this video. It made me smile, and got me interested in
Paroli. I liked the little surprises, the way the signs were used
creatively. Constructive critisicm: please improve the readability of
the signs by improving contrast in them. Dont use "hollowed out"
lettering. I had difficulty reading some of the signs. I still think the
signs should be hand-made though, it adds to the flavour. Maybe you
could make a hand-drawn skin for Paroli? I would use it :)
