First: This game is an RPG, but those wanting a massive RPG that requires 30+ hours running around exploring detailed maps while grinding for levels and hunting for the next plot advancement probably won't be satisfied with "The Yawhg." That's not to say this isn't a good game; it is simply a different type of RPG. This is a short, stat-building, choice based game resulting in multiple outcomes for each charater. Also, the better the outcome of the character or characters (you can play 2-4) the more likely the town will survive after the devestation you know is coming.
The game is only a few rounds, so if you're playing with only one character it is very short, and it can still be beated in under an hour even if you choose to play with (the maximum) four characters. That being said, it has great replay value since it's delightful to go through the game a few more times to find other options and different results stemming from alternate decisions made during your training -- not to mention the final outcomes for characters, which change based off of your choices leading into the end of the game.
Finally, it's worth noting several sitautions and character endings are delightfully grim, which made me happy.
I recommend it, and will toss it to my friends, but I admit I didn't break down to buy it until it was on sale since it is a shorter game and I'm a cheap, horrible person sometimes.
