Go out into the wild and do the thing that heroes do best: defeat random monsters without reason or provocation!

The Hero's Journey is a satirical take on the "fantasy as a mass-murder simulator" genre. It was made in 48 hours for a game jam with the theme of procedural generation, featuring random maps, loot and lore.

I like the change of perspective :). While it isn't really necessary for this game I'd suggest that you work on making the controls more responsive in the future.

Thanks for the feedback! What type of responsiveness do you mean specifically? The movement style was based on older games like Final Fantasy, where you could only come to a stop on a tile.

i thought this game was okay but how do u win or lose? i got to a dark screen and wasnt able to do anything else


jacobalbano responds:

The only way to win is to stop playing. ;) It's a bit of an art game in that way. As for losing, if you pick up the rope at the beginning you can hang yourself on a tree after you get fully depressed, or just walk into lava or deep water.

Pretty nice, but uhm... how do you equip stuff?


jacobalbano responds:

Equipment is automatically equipped as you pick it up, and it modifies your strength and health stats. Incidentally, your wisdom stat goes down as you kill more monsters. ;)
