DROD RPG: Tendry's Tale is a 2D RPG-lite resource management puzzle game.

This game is not about the graphics. It's about unique puzzles and strategy mechanics. DROD RPG combines the puzzling elements of DROD with the RPG fare of player stats, one-on-one monster duels, items, custom power-ups and treasure. This is not your typical RPG, and it's not a roguelike. It's a resource management game with RPG trappings, set in the DROD world.

Join Tendry, a member of the Stalwart Army, who is trapped far beneath the surface after battling a menacing Underground Empire. He might not be the ideal warrior, but he's got a lot of panache to make up for his lack in prowess. Or at least he's always good for a laugh.

What makes DROD RPG different from the typical role-playing experience is that it contains no randomness. Enemy encounters, items, areas and treasures are all carefully designed to bring you a series of engaging, well thought-out handmade puzzles that are a joy to solve. There is no grinding and each area is a completely unique experience. Movement is turn-based, and you may play as quickly or slowly as you want. Play this game to relax and contemplate, or take advantage of its large depth and optional elements of challenge and replayability.

Combining DROD's straight-forward interface and flexible puzzle widgets with the staples of RPG-like play makes for a unique gaming experience. Along with a powerful level editor, online features, and an enthusiastic player community, this is a game you can enjoy for years.

Key features

  • 13 interlocking puzzle levels with rooms filled with traps, secrets, and surprises.

It's crazy that this hasn't been Greenlit already.

I'm not compelled to buy it, but wanted to post feedback as I'm very much a fan of independant publishing in general. I'd never heard of "DROD" before and didn't get much of a feeling for what the appeal and challenge is after looking through the stills on Steam, or the content on the web site linked to at the end of the game description. I'm intrigued enough that I might try to find a lets-play vid of an earlier DROD game but wanted to post comment without 3rd party influence yet. I'd recommend adding a video with a few minutes of consecutive game play that better demonstrates what a "resource management" game is.
