    Can it just be one word 5000 times?

    Icons and emotes instead of dialog? lol.

    @Ryisunique : I'm pretty sure many of the old early 80's RPGs have less than 5000 words. But it would be interesting to try to do it now.

    @Vance Raehart : Sure, though I can guess what word you mean, as I think that's been done.

    @Windows i7 : A lot of show instead of tell. May have to leave some things open to interpretation. Or maybe the dialogue is just "Kill Evil Wizard." "Ok."

    Does this include the item/skill description?

    I believe 'A Bird Story' was told without any dialogue, though I don't think that quite counts as an rpg.

    I've always wanted to try to do an entire RPG with no text at all, but it would require being a much better artist than I am. (You would need a lot of emoting from sprites to really make it work imo).

    @TheoAllen : To avoid strange loopholes I'd have to say yes.

    It sure sounds like a fun challenge to use as few words as possible and still have a decent story.

    Plenty of Gameboy RPGs are like this.
