INSTRUCTIONS: Click the "GRIND" button to, well, grind! Once you hit the required level on the sign, click the "KILL" button to defeat the boss!

YOU ARE THE FORMIDABLE KNIGHT KNOWN AS SIR PROTAG. COMING UPON A CASTLE STOCKED WITH EVIL MONSTERS, YOU KNOW BUT ONE PATH: A BLOODY ONE, CARVED THROUGH YOUR ENEMIES. But first? Some light grinding on your training dummy (by clicking endlessly) - don't want to get hurt now, do we?

This was a short (short? *evil chuckle*) game I made for F*ck This Jam. It's essentially a game that highlights how ridiculously stupid grinding can get in some RPGs. Massive props to whoever finishes the game manually.

NOTE: IF YOU REALLY DON'T WANT TO CLICK A MILLION TIMES (fair enough) SIMPLY HIT LEFT & X ON YOUR KEYBOARD IN THE FOURTH BATTLE ONWARDS TO RECEIVE A HUGE LEVEL BOOST.

Thanks go to the following freesound.org peeps: ERH, DJ Chronos and FreqMan.

Enjoy!

Always a fan of a simple game making fun of a much larger concept. While a big heavy handed, yeah, good job on this.
Also, would that level 3 Minotaur happen to be a reference to anything? He's striking that pose and I feel like I've seen another bull fellow do it elsewhere.

It's Usain Bolt's pose. I liked the idea of an arrogant minotaur, so I thought it'd be funny. :).

little bug: I can grind after the monster dies. (is rpg design so fucking hard?)
Basically it's a mobile game. Put all your chips in the touch plataform.


failnaut responds:

RPG design is as hard as you are experienced. As for the bug, yeah, I noticed that one, but given that you're technically beating up the training dummy, it's not breaking the realism. Consider it training between face-offs. ;).

yeah i pretty much hate the grinding becuase its like 80% of most mmo game play

failnaut responds:

Yeah, that's kinda the point I was making here - while it can be therapeutic, in terms of actually engaging people who want a proper gaming experience, it falls short for most.

This game seems broken in Firefox, as no matter what I click nothing happens.


failnaut responds:

I'm sorry to hear that! I tested it thoroughly in Chrome, but I'll take a look at the Firefox issues.

I have played it manually and when you do this you have a moster of muscle pain and you have kill the time with a bat


failnaut responds:

Hah! You don't have to though, that's why the code is there. :).
