Cliche Quest

Crapsoft Studios Proudly Presents...Cliche Quest Episode 1!
A project 5 years in the making and now immutable proof that I can work on a deadline!

Only you can stop Dark Lord and his minions from finding the 5 Cliches of Power and taking over Cliche Land! Kill the bad guy, get the girl, save the world, you know the deal!

*Also available for non-RPG Maker owners at:

*To load Workshop games either use Search and enter "Cliche Quest", check Program Files(x86)-Steam-steamapps-common-RPGVXAce-Projects or open RPG Maker, select File-Manage Projects and it should appear in the project list as a loadable/playable file.

*Check out the Cliche Quest Let's Plays by GameDawg!

*Don't forget to fave and rate if you enjoy Cliche Quest!

A hilarious world of RPG cliches including but not limited to:
Enemies that are slightly different colors!
Potions of Uselessness! Vendor Trash! A...herring!
Innkeepers who are *definitely* NOT vampires!
NPCs that say different things!
An Intro! ...that you can skip!
A fully working slot machine so Ralph can foster his gambling addiction!

The Ultimate Sidequest!
The most devious sidequest ever imagined! Help NPCs with banal quests that only you can complete!

A Clichiary with 50 unlockable Cliches that are uncovered as you play!

A quirky narrator and snide Save Crystal keep you company throughout your quest.

Also includes:
Custom "cute" pixel battlers, because I friggin' hate the VX Ace ones!
A fully mapped game world (no overworld)
No auto-generated dungeons! Yuck!
No unnecessary grinding, impossible puzzles or meta-gaming! But hey...if you wanna farm/grind...you can!
Unlock fast travel options as you progress through the game.
Save anywhere! Save points appear in the game as visual cues, giving healing and snarky advice but you can save at any time.

*Check the discussion tab for this project for Game Tips for Episode 1!

@sirxanthor If you have some suggestions, hit me up. You can post on the suggestions on the balance & feedback board or add me. I'm working on remaking the game in MV, as a complete game (non-episodic) for a potential future commercial release.
