The other more meaningful bit is the game's focus on the relationship between the unnamed protagonist and his magical friend Buddy. Buddy embodies the theme of companionship, and can aid the boy in his endless running treetop quest to pick up stars.

Unfortunately for my Android brethren out there, the team is currently focused on bringing this to iOS, with an Android version set as one of the early stretch goals.
