    Tale of vengeance with bad grammar, emulating 80s style of gameplay. I guess it works.


    Standard JRPG. I think the difficulty spikes tremendously fast especially since I’m just one character. 3 Slimes destroyed me. Goblin ate all my resources, all in the first 5 minutes. Too much grinding involved just so I can have enough money to get myself gear. IMO not on a great start especially when a judge only has 1 hour to play these games.


    Gradient bar together with everything else retro is very jarring. The squares are  confusing and the overworld map kinda overpowered my senses. Not sure if I like this aesthetic.


    It’s a good retro RPG that it tries to emulate but honestly? I’m not a huge fan over this type of gameplay. I hate grinding needlessly at the beginning. I want to have fun first then we can talk about grinding. I don’t like how it’s written even though I understand why it’s like that. I had a harder timer processing what they’re saying because of it. The battle scaling is unnecessarily tough on the get-go especially since I have a short time frame to garner what is going on.

The atmosphere is so good and I LOVED the humor. I enjoyed this game and wanted to get through it all, but I couldn't due to an error. I tried closing and reopening, ending and loading, but the game kept giving me the message of a missing file. I tried skipping the message, but it kept coming back up. I dared to sit through it all but got until the second part of the cave before I had to stop. What do you think can be wrong? If the message can be fixed, I'd like to try again, but want to give everyone else a shot too in the meantime.

In addition to a fix to this problem, I'd appreciate the time to play my game too! I wish us both luck in this contest.


Thanks for playing my game, and thanks for spotting this bug. It's a sadly simple problem, the released version of the game is missing a sound file played only when you flee/escape a battle. Unfortunately as I understand it you can't upload any changes to a game, even bug fixes, until the judging period is over. In my own testing the prompt stopped if I exited the game and re-opened it, though it reappears if you try to escape again. If you don't want to deal with closing and re-opening every time you run, I completely understand. Thanks for the comment, I'll be sure to play your game later.


This looks awesome! And yes I love the graphics and artwork!
