Yo, RPG Webs. I've been on a bit of a hiatus, but I suddenly got an urge of productivity in the last month. So I tinkered around a bit in the editor, crafting "grand tales" (delusions of grandeur, to put it mildly) but ultimately got nowhere. ... or so it was. Something doable. I sat down, brainstormed a bit, came up with satire and kept sitting on my chair for a week, and here I am. Dude vs. The JRPG Beta Genre: RPG, Fantasy, Parody/Satire. Feel: Imagine grumpy cat playing a generic JRPG. Playtime: +-40 Minutes. Download: 192 MB Key features: You play a game where you control a dude who periodically controls himself in a game he is playing. The main protagonist is a cynical ass. Tons of references to popular media, including Park Souls, Schoggimon and Fantasy First. Cynical hero! Incredibly serious light hearted dialogue full of wit and sarcasm. The hero is cynical. Epic story featuring hats, death, a princess and stone fragments. C stands for cynical Tons of unique characters and personalities! Made by exclusively using the notorious R.T.P. Da Story: It is the year... something in the future. As a consequence for making the same game for decades, the japanese games industry is nearing a total collapse. As a last ditch effort, major development companies merge to form Kawai Dotcom, in order to create the ultimate JRPG, the savior, the game, the solution that will carry them out of this financial blackhole. Kawai Dotcom promised that "The JRPG" will go back to the roots of JRPGs, but still innovate to go with the times, while allowing a cutting edge artificial reality experience through the "Dotcom Diver". (Sold seperately) One day, some guy heard about this endeavour, and applied for a closed beta key as he had too much time on his hands. Dumb luck or destiny led him to receive such a key along with a QA prototype of the "Dotcom Diver"; He did not waste much time and dove right into the game. But what he found exceeded all expectations: It was an utter mess, a horrible excuse for a video game. Instead of recycling the ultimate JRPG classic, the game recycled every JRPG classic expecting something good to come out of it. Not able to take it any longer, he quit.... He tried, that is. Long story short: He got stuck. In "the JRPG" Beta. Characters: (sorted by relevance) Swagsoldier123 - Protagonist. Highly cynical. Harry Eich - Childhood friend. Professor Eich - Grandfather of said childhood friend. Princess (???) - Apparently a princess. Seffirod - Most skilled swordsman in the kingdom. Masked Man - Source of all that is evil. Gameplay: Who needs gameplay when you got story? Action packed turn based combat, tons of skills, tons of enemies, tons of fun. Story State of the art interface. Read my story pls Challenging dungeons! It's really good, hero kill evil Epic boss battles! Offering my services as a writer Feedback greatly appreciated! Disclaimer: This game is satire because satire sounds more intelligent than comedy. I did not notice this at first, but now I do: This game mocks everything, even if unintentionally. Inspired by the current state of the japanese games industry, Cliche Quest and Super Quest. Extra Credits & Thanks: Galv for his text speed snippet. DiamondandPlatinum3 for splash map script.
