"The first RPG that we made! Explore an undead world in true 8-bit RPG fashion. Comes in a bundle with Cthulhu Saves the World."


"Breath of Death VII is een van die zeldzame parodiespellen die de valkuilen van het genre herkent en bespot, maar ze ontwijkt in het design, met een zelfgenoegzame tevredenheid die wordt overgedragen aan de gamer."

"Het verhaal is onberispelijk, scherp, en je zal continu de slappe lach krijgen, vooral wanneer je veel van de verwijzingen naar oudere spellen en de grote hoeveelheid woordspelingen begint te herkennen."

"Breath of Death VII: The Beginning is een grote verrassing. Het is een RPG die voelt als een klassieker van vroeger, maar het heeft geen van de valkuilen typisch voor RPG spellen."

"Voor een RPG waarvan het plezier op een lijn is met veel van de €30 tot €60 spellen, is het een extreem koopje."

“The chest screams ‘Bazooka of Ultimate Destruction’ to me!”

Breath of Death VII: The Beginning (BoDVII) is a classic 2-D turn-based role-playing game (rpg) by the company Zeboyd Games with emphasis on combat mechanics and tactics.

Atmosphere & Details:

+ The 16-bit-style and general layout of the game provides a retro-feeling.
+ Various entertaining allusions and references to rpgs from the ‘90s.

o Relatively short game that can be finished within a few hours.

- The musical background lacks variety.

Combat & Tactical Gameplay:

+ Fast paced battle system with round-based combat mechanics.
+ Easy character development with branching level-up system.
+ Employs an interesting combo system with multi-character combination techniques for special attacks.

o Party size is limited to a maximum of four characters.
o Encounters in an area are limited (with a manual option to have additional encounters).

- Next to the protagonist there are only three recruitable characters.

Characters & Story:

+ Creative characters offer amusing dialogues and slapstick humour.

- Lack of coherent and fluid story telling.
- No voice acting during the entire game.


Zeboyd Games created with BoDVII a short and entertaining game experience. It pays tribute to the classic rpg genre and successfully mimics the basic mechanics without overstaying its welcome.

Fun fact:

Despite its title, it is the only game of its "series", and the previous "six" do not exist. The title is simply a parody.

This game has no Steam achievements.

Breath of Death VII is a very short and basic, yet enjoyable, RPG. As someone with little experience playing RPGs, I found myself able to enjoy this one a lot. I imagine hardcore fans will find this game boring and lackluster, so don't have very high expectations. This game is enjoyable for a very simple reason; it's fun, the dialogue is funny, the storyline is somewhat intrigueing, the battles are cool and the soundtrack is pretty sweet. There is not much character development or a big world to explore, instead, most of my personal enjoyment came from the dialogue and basic gameplay. The characters are pretty cliché, but still feel a bit unique. They're not that developed, this always left some room for imagination, personally, when I was imagining this game through the dialogue.

A very short, but fun (and cheap) RPG is the best way to describe it in short. If you enjoyed this game, you'll also definitely love Cthulhu Saves The World, which is basically a straight improvement in almost every way.

Short game, but worth the play. The characters are witty and funny, and sometimes the plot and dialogue is just so weird and pun-filled that you can't help but laugh. With it's classic rpg design, definitely worth it to spend some money to play for some nostalgic and fun-filled times!

Prior to playing this, I hadn't played many RPGs at all. I'd played Oblivion and Skyrim, but that was really it. I had also played The Stick Of Truth and that was the only turn-based RPG I'd played. However, I had seen enough gameplay of the Final Fantasy series and Earthbound to know what I was in for. After playing The Stick Of Truth and loving it so much, I wanted to get into turn-based RPGs. I saw the price of this game and decided to get it. I'm happy to say that I wasn't disappointed.

Set in the future, humanity has been wiped out by nuclear warfare. The undead remained, who rebuilt civilization. All was well until evil invaded the lands. You assume the role of Dem, a skeleton hero and silent protagonist. Dem meets Sara, a historian and mind reader who forces her adventure on Dem to uncover the secrets of the past. Join Dem and Sara on their journey as they meet new friends and combat evil foes along the way.

This is your standard turn-based RPG gameplay. There's really not much else to comment on. You roam around, a random encounter happens and battle ensues. You can use your basic attack, a more advanced “Tech” attack, magic and even use double team or “Unite” moves with someone in your party. As you advance in the game, meet new party members and acquire better weapons and armor. You'll also level up and learn new attacks. This game breaks the fourth wall constantly. You won't have to question what type of game you're playing. It will be sure to let you know that you're playing a turn-based RPG with it's constant references to the typical happenings of these types of games. That's one thing I loved about this game. It adds comedic relief to an otherwise serious genre. I mentioned that Dem is a silent protagonist. He doesn't verbally communicate, but the game allows you to read his thoughts. Sara is also able to read his mind so there is still communication, which adds to the light-hearted narrative.

Overall, I'd recommend this game to anyone that's a fan of turn-based RPGs or is trying to get into them. This is a tribute and love letter to the classic JRPGs of the past. The gameplay is fun, the story keeps you interested and it's use of satire gives it charm. It's a short game, but for the price, I can't really complain.
