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!

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. ;).


But, but, I can't see my stats! Bawwwwwwwwww!


failnaut responds:

Haha! This wasn't meant to be any more complex than levels, really - just me taking stupid grinding mechanics to task.


I like the boss music, but it would be cool if it was a terned-bass rpg,


failnaut responds:

You'd be surprised at what's in the works. ;).


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.


People find this review helpful!
failnaut responds:

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


i know this is a test game... bt i wud play it if it wer a real game. i can imagine it as a iphone game


failnaut responds:

It is something I'm considering!
