HURT, MOVE, and TALK though Deaths wacky roommates in this Puzzle RPG.




DeathR.png--Synopsis--DeathR.png
You have died and now you have to complete Death's Challenge if you want to come back to life. However, the task might be a tad... unorthodox.

Fight Deaths roommates in a puzzle-based RPG where you need to HURT, use MOVES, or even TALK to the enemies to gain the upper hand in battle. As you progress, you'll slowly discover the events that lead to your death and question whether or not reviving yourself is even worth it.

Seems fun.
How disturbing is the imagery in this game? Is it like Undertale/Grimm's Hollow levels, straight up horror, or something in between?

Definitely something in-between those. There is images of blood and death, but none of it is really that gory or explicit.

Thanks!
It doesn't seem too intense.
I'll probably try it out when i have the time.

It looks interesting. A different take from usual RPG Maker games.

I posted a review on the game jam's page, but forgot to mention one thing and thought I'd post here instead. Overall, I liked nearly everything about this game - the art, puzzles, battle system, and the flashback sequences, and I thought the story was engaging, though possibly not for everyone. I didn't run into any bugs either (though there were some typos throughout the game), so good job!

I don't think I got the true ending, so I might try it again. But I did want to mention that it may be useful to make it easier for the player to save the game without having to walk to and from the save point, especially because one tends to lose battles on the first try (or maybe that's just me!).

In particular, I saved right before going into battle with the last person, but then couldn't find Death again before having to make the final decision that led to the ending - I would have liked to be able to save again so I could see the other ending as well.

Anyway, well done!

Sometimes I wonder why I still try and recruit others to help with my games. It never works.

welp, thanks to Luna MV, I was able to add the Balloon as a window... thus allowing me to edit the font color and outline... so now it looks like comic bubbles above characters. I have NO idea why I couldn't get this to work through more conventional means, but here we are.
