26 Gy officially released!
Release date: January 26, 2016
26 Gy is a old-school horror RPG about dying of radiation poisoning.


In the year 20XX, a deadly accident leaves three staff members of the Los Alamos National Laboratory with only 72 hours to live. Their deaths inevitable, they volunteer to explore the mysterious, ever-shifting labyrinth beneath the desert facility, where a door was found leading into a never-ending darkness. But what will they find once they have stepped into shadow?

26 Gy is a turn-based RPG in which you lose character levels rather than gain them. Your character--Louise the Scientist, Cecil the Engineer, or Harry the Guard--starts at a high level, representing the relative healthiness of the first "walking dead" stage of acute radiation poisoning. With each passing minute, they lose a level, in accordance with their deteriorating condition. Players must explore the labyrinth to find weapons, armor, and stat bonuses to counteract the increasing effect of the radiation poisoning. Your character's stats will decrease steadily in real-time and you will need these items to continue forward against the monsters in the labyrinth.

- Three playable characters, each with a unique twist on classic turn-based combat
- Procedurally-generated dungeons
- 15 levels filled with monsters and item upgrades
- New Game Minus mode allowing a second playthrough if one character dies from the poisoning before reaching the end of the labyrinth
- Commodore 64-inspired soundtrack by composer Jenny Gibbons

26 Gy is finished and available at!

26 Gy was developed using RPG Maker VX Ace and is the second title from developer Malcolm Pierce, aka Redbird Menace. Pierce's first game, The Closer: Game of the Year Edition, a comedy-RPG featuring Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek, is available for FREE at

While the game itself could use some work, the idea is actually fantastic and I like the way it's executed. Would definitely play.

The concept is really nice. I'm excited that people are experimenting and deconstructing the rpg genre like Undertale (not to say Undertale was the beginning of such deconstruction) and the eeriness of the game's atmosphere is appealing.

To those complaining about graphics and animation, it's supposed to look that way, like an old commodore game.

Seems interesting.

I like the idea, it just looks shoddy.

the idea is ok, need to maybe fix some stuff like walking animation and textures but for now it's a yes

I would like to see a few more examples... this seems to be a "MAJOR" work in progress... I would need to see more progress before I can vote. I like the story, I like where it's going, but some of the art work needs to be worked on a bit more. IMHO.
