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.

this is an excellent game....... idea. but it needs some major changes, like maybe you should give the character some kind of strengths, like more health, the first thing that happened when i played was i saw some blue, walked into it, and drowned. i didn't know there was water until i drowned. you should probably draw stuff better like the lava. again when i walked over i saw red and then i stepped on it and died, seriously draw better and put up some warnings on the river and lava spots. otherwise i liked that you came in with a sword and were able to kill whoever the fuck you wanted. good job bro.

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. ;)

The ending is really surprising.... It's a sad story but overall the story is pretty good.
