Yes, yes I liked it too. The dialogue wasn't as superb as the graphics, and the cave was sort of bleh, but overall it was very, very nice. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment as well.
All in all, A+++++++
A wonderful story, detailed enough to keep you reading on, and fast moving enough to keep you interested. The artwork is great, probably better than great. I didn't get the reference to the Beetles, but that didn't affect my experience at all.
The only negative points I'd make is the lack of choices in the game. There's some underground caverns, but other than that there's not much which you do in the game.
I look forward to the next installment.
