IMPORTANT: This is a rather different version of Chapter 1!
The original was released in 2007, but this version was uploaded in 2010. It's basically a 'remake' in many ways, though the plot and events are generally the same.

Unfortunately, your saves from the old version won't work due to the drastic differences behind the scenes, but there are enough differences, I hope, to make replaying worthwhile. Any saves you make in this version can carry over to later chapters properly.

EDIT (21st of August 2010): Sorry, there'd been bugs with this version for a long time! It's because I fixed the bugs on Kongregate and updated the version there, but didn't do so here... Now I have though, so hopefully all problems will be fixed.

Oh, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you have an appropriate Flash Player version! There's a screen at the start that warns you if your version is outdated. If this screen appears *at all*, then you may (probably will) experience some bizarre saving problems. Updating your Flash Player prevents them.

great rpg

i really enjoy this game, the graphics are fantastic, its like playing a super nintendo rpg, i forget im playing a flash game. one bug im experiencing is that when i die, it gives me 2 options, load or main menu, but nothing happens when i click on the buttons. the screen fades a little but the same screen remains.
looking forward to the next chapters.

omg.. I'm screwed >_<...

I've been seeing ALOT of RPGs, some time after I began planning my own (which was also gonna be divided into chapters), and this was so awesome >_<, I've got alot to compete with if this actually continues :(.

Well, it WAS awesome, not as serious as mine plans to be, a stereotypical save the princess from the dragon beginning, but it was just put together (the retro styled world brung in with a nicely done battle system).

The music suited well, pretty much all there is to it.

The fact that you're also including cutscenes worries me, especially since you did a good job of it =P.

Overall, this was just amazing, I hope my RPG's nearly as good as this =P.

Heh, while I was making this, I never checked Newgrounds just in case I found something so much better that I could never hope to compete with, which might make me lose motivation...
But nobody else should lose motivation! It'd be just grand actually if I could *inspire* people to make their own RPGs and put serious effort into them!
Or something!

(I wonder how many people realise the intro is a complete parody of so many RPGs out there? o_O)

The game was good but...

the game was good but getting to the dragon and killing the dragon DID drag out a bit... but the story sounds good so far and the battle system is sound so cant wait until the next one!

Really boring

i usually like rpgs, but the storyline is what drives me in most of them. a dragon in a castle, its been done hundreds of times.

anyways, i went through the dragons lair for like 10 min, and killed nothing but the same enemy everytime, and it got really boring, so i quit and came here and gave a review.

Probably the most boring game on newgrounds.


Pseudolonewolf responds:

Ah, such a terrible, terrible shame... I too believe that the story should be the main focus and driving point of an RPG, and in this it is; IF you get past the dragon (which was meant to be really easy, but I suppose the 5-minute effortless dungeon romp is a bit too much for so many peoples' attention spans these days...).

You might've enjoyed it if you'd got past the dragon, too.
