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!

I like the idea that grinding can tedious and stupid in some RPGs. With better graphics it would be much better.



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

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


Well, this game did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, parody or not, I can't give a good rating to a game that doesn't actually let me play.


failnaut responds:

Fair enough. :).


it was interesting but there was no plot or gameplay at all i don't really see the point in making a game as mindless as this. I am rating it 1.5 because i like the style of are that you used.


failnaut responds:

The point was in the description!


It's a terrible game, but it does show how ridiculous grinding is. Maybe this will get added?


failnaut responds:

That's the point, really!
