Overall, I enjoyed the concept of the game. The flow of the story is solid and the ideas for the bosses and characters were great. If you're a fan of this genre, there's also a bunch of artwork and accompanying text that makes it quite enjoyable.

Unfortunately, due to execution issues, it can be frustrating to play. The major fundamental things that need improving are controls and RNG - or at least helping the player compensate against those. There are times I've repeated certain segments upwards of a hundred times due to fighting against controls and/or RNG - especially in later segments in the game where there is little to no margin for error. This problem becomes even more obvious when you have to sit through forced dialogue/cutscenes repeatedly for a segment.

Control and RNG issues aside, there are several things in the game that are not obvious without a guide. Be it trying to find specific bad ends or even understanding what you're supposed to do in the game as it is not always intuitive.

That being said, if you're a fan of this genre, I'd give it a try anyway - there isn't anything else like it on the market.

I sincerely hope the developer creates more of these type of games. Heck, if possible, even NSFW-versions would be fitting for this genre. One other thing I'd liked to have seen is the ability to see the text events when implementing something like the "True End" credits area.

Pros:

- Great concept
- Some fun/interesting bad ends, especially when being corrupted (or in one instance, brainwashed)
- Lots of artwork (even if low-res)
- Plot is workable
- Varied gameplay and puzzles
- Cute 8-bit style music and sound effects

Cons:

- Controls are not responsive leading to failures
- Too much RNG
- Unclear direction for player at times
- English translation is awkwardly imperfect at times and breaks the immersiveness
- Needs quick save or better save points or ability to skip dialogue/cutscenes
- Wish there was more content! (Game itself can be completed within an hour if perfect playthrough.)

Fantastic digital board game. From the characters to the soundtrack and gameplay, this is a well-rounded piece of work.

While the rules are quite simple, the tactics/strategies you must employ lend depth to the game. It's very fun to play with friends too or even random people.

If you're looking for something fun, this could be it!

This is one of the best ARPGs of this generation. If you like the traditional gameplay of the Diablo series, this is a must-play!

There are four default character classes and each with 30 skills that can be levelled up to 15 times each:

- Berserker
- Embermage
- Engineer
- Outlander

Additionally, you are able to assign attribute points each time you level. This combination allows for a huge variety of character builds.

There's a great variety of monsters, dungeons, loot, bosses, and more. You'll be running through a variety of environments with massive randomly generated maps. The nice thing though is that the map does not randomly generate each time you play but rather you can force it to re-roll the world when you play. Also, since this game is fully moddable, it's unlikely you'll run out of things to try.

Difficulty ranges from Casual (you're god-like) to Elite (oh god, why?!). And for the truly hardcore... there's Hardcore mode - in other words, perma-death.

I highly recommend playing this game with friends, and with the following mods:

If you were a fan of Rainbow Six's classic planning mode, if you enjoy chess and tactics, or if you just enjoy strategy games in general... you'll probably have a lot of fun with this game.

The game is simple: You control a small group of soldiers and your objective is to take out the other team, rescue hostages, and/or take control of areas. Online play is in a turn-based format (much akin to postal-chess) so you do not have to be there 'live' to play it.

Couple that with streamlined graphics, an amazing soundtrack. This game is well worth the entry fee as an indie title.

Highly recommended!

A gem of a game that most people probably haven't heard of or played.

You play as a 'Evil Genius' who starts off as a small-timer and slowly build resources, an army of goons, devious devices and traps... of couse, all of it to enhance your awesome lair and keep the good guys at bay while on your way to world domination!

Two words: Play it!
