Parody of classical fantasy role-playing games with three playable characters and amusing battle system.


I like it, but I wish there were a way to pick up where I left off instead of having to go back to the beginning. I do like that you can learn the fight orders.

It's an okay concept for a game. I'm a fan of Discworld and love that someone else would put the time and effort into making a game for it. Two things that I want to comment on:

1) The battle system is a little underwhelming. As far as I can tell, there is no difference between the characters in terms of how you play, merely the aesthetics. When winning all comes down to luck, it makes for a less enjoyable game.

2) I'm a little concerned about Twoflowers character design. I'm not accusing you of any ill intent, but it's reminiscent of the WWII fanged-Japanese caricature used in propaganda. There could be some flak heading your way, so be ready.

Very very poorly done. I imagine this will find its way on to the main page thanks to it's art however it lacks a lot in the way of gameplay and the spirit of the source material.

First the battle system is cute but it could be augmented by adding in more RPG elements. Just picking a class isn't enough, there has to be something to differentiate between the classes. Perhaps if the classes came with in battle abilities the combat system wouldn't be the dull game of RPS that it is. Never mind the fact that the game is incredibly linear, or at least it was until I completely lost interest, which doesn't speak well of the game.

Finally if this is meant to be a Discworld "parody" then you fail utterly in capturing the spirit of the setting. While the weird pop-culture based monsters are a little clever the way the jokes behind them are delivered is stale and far too monotone. The best joke in keeping Pratchett's humor is the game over screen (a skull with the word "hello" over it's mouth) however after such a monochromatic affair it's hard to really appreciate it.

If you want some advice on where to find good ideas for both humor and gameplay I recommend looking up "The Kingdom of Loathing." In fact I would recommend playing that over this game to any players likewise dissatisfied with this game.

i hate having to restart when i lose because this is a luck based game

It was amusing, though I felt like it missed something. Maybe voices or so? Anyways, an amusing battle system and the overall controls where simple and good.
