About This Game

Labyronia is an epic RPG, heavily inspired by Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, and the Dragon Quest series.

When your world is invaded by mysterious creatures, the very survival of humanity is at stake. Some believe these creatures are gods, descending down on the earth to punish humanity for its cruel and wicked ways. Others believe them to be malevolent invaders from beyond the stars. It's up to you to discover the truth behind these creatures' origins and save humanity from their wrath.

It's widely believed that the secret to defeating these monsters lies in temples that appeared, scattered throughout the world, 50 years prior. Journeying to these temples, across the harsh, hostile landscape will require intense skill, cunning, and might. Unearthing the secrets inside will be a challenge akin to the most hardcore JRPG's of the 16 bit eras.

Can you harness the power to defeat the gods? Labyronia is an epic adventure that will stick with you forever.

Key features -

-Partly non-linear progression in a large and original world.
-The Cue system encourages exploration. Find abnormalities to obtain skills, and challenge yourself to collect all the Cues!
-Strategic Boss battles, and smooth combat system with Yanfly's battle engine.
-Random battles are limited to the world map (and even there it's possible to avoid them usually.) Otherwise, all enemies are visible.
-Clean, colorful visuals and a bunch of fresh-looking monsters.
-Experience the emotional storyline and challenge the four elemental gods!

I really enjoyed this game. The story (no spoilers from me) was quite well thought out & also well written. The store page will give a rough outline about the games plot.
It is a RPG Maker game, which i know will make some people will immediately ignore it, but if u don't mind the art & music of RPG Maker games u should give this a shot.
It features exploration, turn-based-battles, & some puzzle sections usually of the maze/ labyrinth type.
It took me just over 20hrs to finish the game & i used a guide for most parts (link below) as i found it easy to get lost & not know what to do next, but that's just my weakness, lol.
Labyronia has 6 Achievements as well as Trading Cards.
Again, the strong part for me was the story & i'll eventually play Labyronia 2 to see what happens next, although i don't think it's mandatory to get proper enjoyment out of the 1st Labyronia game.

The (excellent) guide i used, written by aquatorrent:

This is a game, that does not respect your time.

Also, screw labyrinths. Nothing is balanced, and everything is designed to waste as much time as possible.

Nice RPG game in your collection for good price , if you fun of this type RPG games - buy it. Nice story. Also soundtrack is good.Fully gamepad support. Dont press F12 button if you dont want return to main menu without saving any game progress. Low resolution in game and i din't find any settings.
But i use ALT + ENTER keyboard shortcut to run any game or program in fullsreen mode and it works here.

I just stayed up until almost 2 AM to finish this game, and I wasn't disappointed. Essentially, if you love retro JRPGs, you'll enjoy this. Game play is standard turn-based, abilities are gained by exploration, there are TONS of items to pimp out your characters, and the ending is pretty solid. As far as negatives go, the writing is average, I'd say (the love story could have been fleshed out to great effect), and some of the puzzles seemed a tad glitchy. The labyrinths teeter on the line of challenging and rage-quit inducing, individual players may vary on how they feel about it. You don't get other playable characters until later in the game, though your main character is pretty beastly on his own.

On the whole, I really enjoyed this game; it reminded me in the best ways of the early Final Fantasy games, and I can't wait to play the sequel!

KEYBOARD USERS, keyboard is currently ded, only controller, if you don't have a controller, avoid this at all cost! Even if it cost $1.94! Looks like it's fixed

Why I recommend it
☑ Price
☑ Beautiful tiles or map's textures
☑ Nice sound track
☑ Lot's of labyrinths
☑ Nice story

It's an RPG-maker game, but this is an amazing game, you get it? a-maze-ing, ahueheuheuheuehuehue, ok nvm. You get the idea of how the game function with rpg maker, so I wont elaborate.

Now the cons,
It's very time consuming

After the intro, you are allowed to roam around the world, basically your mission is to collect all four elemental stones. The thing is, there are paths that are not accessible unless you have certain items (e.g. pickaxe, someone's weapon), but the game doesn't hint you where to get it, so this make the game much much more tougher, because it doesn't encourage you to explore the world, it forces you to. Without a map, some maps are just tooooooo huge to explore randomly, most of my time, and probably yours, will be spent on figuring out where in the map you are.

Not a genre that I usually play, but I find myself keep getting drawn back to Labyronia RPG. Really nice, simple graphic design helps (I understand that this is a RPG Maker game) and a fantasy storyline that for reasons that I can't explain has just got me hooked. 360 controls work really well and save games are frequent so you never have to replay huge chunks of game when you die. The English is a little shaky here and there which is rather charming. Price is very generous so there is really no reason not to buy if you are a fan of the genre or want some fantasy story-based gaming.

First of all, im a huge Fan of Games made with the Rpg-Maker.
So when i saw this on sale for a couple of cents and read the positive reviews i thought, "Yeah lets try it."

Huge Disappointment.
Graphic: Its not a problem that its just the Rpg-Maker-Style, some may find it plain ugly, some (like me) just consider it retro and like it. The problem here is that the assets used are basically all the assets you see in every other RPG-Maker game. Plain, boring, overused and uninspired.
Story: its thin as paper, unoriginal and boring. The stuff that was already boring 15 years ago. 4 Elements 4 Cristals Gods destroy earth blablabla *falls asleep*
Music: the music is propably the best part about this game, classic tones you expect from a RPG of this kind but still nice
Gameplay: classic retro JRPG is what you get, nothing not to like. Yet still its just the standart fighting system from the RPG-Maker, which you can find in thousands of other RPG-Maker Games.

This is what leads me to my conclusion, if you dont like classic JRPG's then dont buy this game, if you DO like classic JRPG'S still dont buy this game (not even for 29 cents) since there are RPG-Maker games out there that are tremendously better than this pile of below-mediocracy and are available FOR FREE.
I would love to see the RPG-Maker-Community getting more attention, but not through meh games like this.
(If you want to try a commercial one i advise you to look at To the Moon on Steam or just google one of the various Rpg-Maker-Sites for free ones)

Okay !!! After quite an extensive run and being stuck at the moment ( and refusing any outside help). I thought it might eb a good idea to write a review of this game as a sort of catharsis after hat I went through.

First thing first, if I had to describe Labyronia, I'll say that the game lives up to its namesake, because this is a god damn MAZE !!! No really, I've never felt that lost in a game, you'll spend hour trying to figure out the exit of an area with no reliable way to keep track on where you're going. You'll bash your head in frustration on your keyboard and pray David Bowie to get you out of here, but the only thing you'll get will be an ankward glare from your roommate. To make the matter worse, this game really likes backtracking ... and it'll make sure that you must return multiple time in the same location to get in a SPECIFIC area (odds are that you'll find it randomly most of the time).

Devs say they took inspiration from pokemon for their game. That statement is quite true, type advantage is key for winning battles in this game. They even brought you memorable feature from Pokemon such as "the run in a cave without Flash with Zubats everywhere". Unfortunately, no escape rope or dig, which I think would have been great features in this game considering the lenght of certain dungeons without a shortcut to the exit when done ( from what I've seen you get a blimp later on in the game, but you'll have to get through 8 hours of walking to get that reward, and I hope you can actualy use it to fast travel the world map).
An other thing regarding the battle system and which pained me is that it seems that some fights are neraly impossible without a specific item or spell. And I'm not talking about quest item or plot spell ! No I'm taling about easely missable features that will bite you in the ♥♥♥ later if you don't have them for the battle. A sound exemple will be for the Chimera, if you go unprepared, you'll find that this fight is impossible no matter how much you try because of one ability that prevent your character from doing anything during the fight (you're bloody petrify). Of course there is only one way to go around that ability, but it's NOT in the dungeon ! No it's some special boots that make you immune to stunt and petrify ailments and are sold by only one merchant that happened to be on the other side from where you standing, and that you came by 2 hours ago !!! Needless to say, the reason if I'm currently stuck in the game is because I just happened to bump into another creature like that; and I can't defeat it because somehow I missed again the missable item that I need to beat it ( and it's not even a boss !! ) .

Other than that, I'll say battle are pretty challenging and rewarding when you do have the key elements needed, ennemies actions are not randomize but follow a pattern of actions that they repeat over and over in the same order, alloing you to play around these actions to take minimal damages from punishing blow while destroying your opponent when his guard is open.

Now regarding the story, so far there is not much exposition, which is a good thing ! The story is your to discover through books and dialogues which are quite extensive and well written ( despite some being forced and cringe worthy, trust me you'll understand me when you get to the desert level). Unfortunately I've failed so far to find the main character interesting ( granted I don't find him annoying and it's kind of reflreshing to have a mature man for a lead character), I feel like the dev were focusing to much on his backstory ( which is great) to give him actual character traits, so far none that he'd displayed stroke me as memorable and some were kind of contradicting themselve ...
I don't have much to say about the supportive cast considering I've not seen much of them for now, just that I recruited my first party member after 7 hours of gameplay which is kinda long, and it seems like you have to a GLORIOUS amount of backtracking in past areas if you want to unlock new power for them (and again there is no way to tell if any of them is going to prove MANDATORY in the future).

Now despite, all the backlashes, I still don't hate this game, it's like dark souls playing with your nerves and pushing you to the limit of self-destruction. It's quite remarkable that I'm still able to enjoy a game that frustrating. To be honest, the game is quite well made for an RPG Maker game. Sure it doesn't go overboard and use it's own sprite our illustration (hell even that thumbnail for the game lokks like vergil from Dmc ) but it's still quite charming with the world their proposing.

To top it off, the game is not expensive at all, you'll have a run for your money so no reason for not buying it.

Basic Information
Title: Labyronia RPG
Developer: Labyrinthine
Publisher: Epic Quest Games
Genre: Classic-style RPG

General Impression
Labyronia RPG is a visually pleasant game that despite using some assets from RPG Maker as well as several new ones, also manages to provide us with an original and entertaining story and likeable characters. The game world is quite large and offers enough terrain and random encounter diversity, that it offsets the time wasted on grinding to a decent level. There are also many quests which never seem repetitive and rewards that make it all worth it. Labyronia is by now a succesful RPG series in its own right thanks to a correct asking price and captivating story.

Strong Points
+ Excellent storyline and plenty of quests.
+ Steam Trading Cards & Achievements.

Weak Points
- Difficult start which requires too much grinding.

Rating 7/10

Labyrinths and a story that surprises

Enter a realm in which mortals played gods, and ultimately failed.

Graphics: Ø The graphics aren't surprising, and they are standard - but they are even in their "enlarged" state not ugly and not unsightly.

Sound: Ø Quite standard fare for a RPGMaker game. Nothing outstanding, but also nothing too annoying.

Playability: + The game has some traps laid out, but those actually make the game work perfect in all other areas. The traps are, spots were a low level character can get killed too easily... so take care, and play through the game. I encountered no bugs... some minor typos and a game that ran smoothly and without even once crashing - and I tried hard to get it crashing... No chance at this. You can't save everywhere in the game which actually isn't bad at all. And encounters are often visible on the maps (only not on the world map).

Genre Values:

Story: ++ You play Arres a Battlemage with no history at all, and as shrouded as your history is your future and your abilities. You start off trying to know more about your surroundings, and you learn about the monsters invading all the lands - and about the labyrinths which were created by the four elemental gods. The story is well executed, not too nosy and you choose the pace in which you will do your duties.

Leveling: + You don't gain powers automatically by rising up a level or by just grinding enough monsters to gather EP's you have to search and look for your powers and it is easy to lose track of powers or even imagine what powers there are in the game for you. This is good, since some spells open up new tactics and new possibilities to get your foes more readily vanquished.

Immersion: + Though the game has simple graphics, you can lose yourself in the game. I started to play it and suddenly five hours were gone - most of this effect is derived from the nice story of the game. You just want to know what is your next step, where to go next - why are the people of one city so damn aloof, while in another town you are taken in with a lot of respect. The story uncovers over time your own story, and this makes the game a nice experience. Even grinding is by far not as enervating as you might expect.

Overall Rating: 5 + Alone on this I can say that I was positively surprised by the game, first it's under one buck to buy the game. Depending on how forced you play it, you might solve the game in between 10 to 20 hours, a lot of tripple A games with a lot of fancy graphics but a bad storyline offer less to a much higher price, or spread their contents over several editions of the game. The game isn't the invention of the tyre, but it is decent, nice to play and offering some neat entertainment.

Value for Money: High at 0,99 The game offers at least 10 hours of game time, a good story and stable gameplay, all this for a really low price.

Recommended, especially for JRPG Fans and RPG Fans in general.

As I said, the gamedeveloper didn't invent the tyre new, but he tried to deliver a game that runs without killing your time in waste. The only thing that troubled me was the story between Arres and Ann... Huh? You wan't to know? Buy the game... NOW... You'll see it's fun, especially to read the awkward situation between the Hero and his Heroine... maybe a bit cheesy... but still fun. ***Remark: No cheese was harmed during writing this Review***

If I Had A Nickel For Every Time I Wasted 30 Hours On A ♥♥♥♥♥♥ Game, I Could Buy This Game
- An Official Waffle King Review

~Find more here.

This review is inspired by The Angry Video Game Nerd, Jeff Dunham, and Adam Sandler.

It's 20-♥♥♥♥ing-16. Almost 20-♥♥♥♥ing-17. This game's release date is 20-♥♥♥♥ing-15, but that's only one ♥♥♥♥ing year and this is still un-♥♥♥♥ing-acceptable.

Do you know how many games I have in my backlog? Too many. I have a problem. I spend too much money. I'm hungry, there's not enough food because I spend my money on games. I told you, I have a problem.

I filled a plastic bag with dead grass from my neighbor's lawnmower and sold it to middle schoolers. I spent that on more Steam money and like some Taco Bell. Sorry, I'm getting off-topic. The topic being that I am very upset.

You see this game? You see this ♥♥♥♥ing game? It's aight. But ♥♥♥♥ it. Okay? ♥♥♥♥. It.

Labyronia, or Labyronia RPG as its referred to just about everywhere I see it, is a quaint little PC game available through Steam. It's an RPG, which is probably why they put RPG in the title. Most likely. Though that would imply there was a Labyronia something that wasn't an RPG. I hope there's nothing else. I really do.

"Labyronia is an epic RPG, heavily inspired by Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, and the Dragon Quest series" according to their game's description on the store page. I really don't get why they gotta go name-dropping like that. Like your game is worth a ♥♥♥♥ing nickel, dude. Don't get all uppity. I got a whole bundle of your ♥♥♥♥ for a nickel, actually. Labia RPG 1, Labia RPG 2, and some other ♥♥♥♥. Heavily inspired my ♥♥♥, boy, sit down.

Labia RPG is one of the many retro-style RPG's churned out of the RPG Maker engine, allowing even you to make an RPG if you really wanted to. Anyone can do it. Even... Squidward's house.

I have a problem with Labia RPG. A number of problems. There's nothing wrong with being a retro RPG churned out of the RPG Maker ♥♥♥♥ factory. That's totally cool. Some cool stuff can be made with it. The problem, though, is an RPG that struggles to capture the interest of the player with any discernible hook of any kind.

I gave it a chance, I really did. I didn't want to write "lol this game is a nickel it so bad that it only a nickel" and for that to be the whole review. I wanted to give it a chance and play it through to the end to see if the story ever took off, or if anything interesting ever happened, but it failed on every front.

Labia RPG is a bit of a mess. Its battle system could use some balancing, that's for sure. It's awfully grindy, in all of the worst ways. It brags about its "semi-nonlinear world to explore" which is pretty much dropping you into an RPG world without telling you what to do, despite there being one or two things specific you need to do. No, I don't expect a trail of yellow sparkles like Fable to literally guide me throughout the entire game. But I'd like something besides "lol just walk around you'll find it". Talking to NPC's, anything.

Worst of all is Labia RPG's abhorrent dungeon design. They're all literal mazes. Like the back of a family restaurant place-mat. Subtle landmark cues lighten a laborious task of navigating them if you can figure them out, but there's still puzzles buried in them without enough clues to figure them out. I'm a fan of puzzles. I love puzzle games. Puzzles in RPG's, sure. Puzzles in adventure games, sure. Puzzles that don't respect my ♥♥♥♥ing time? No.

I don't have time for Labia RPG. In a day and age where there's tons of 100-hour RPG's with much better storytelling and gameplay mechanics than this, this is ridiculous. I have way too many RPG's in my backlog with much more appealing gameplay. There's no hook to Labia RPG. It gives me no incentive to press on and figure out its poorly put together puzzles or grind through its dungeons. The game is a chore. Grinding itself is a chore because within the first hour of playing the game I ran into an enemy on the world map maybe once, forcing me to enter and exit dungeons repeatedly to kill the enemies that only spawn once in each room.

Unless you're that ♥♥♥♥ing neckbeard that never shuts up about only liking retro RPG's, there are better games worth your time. RPG's are a time investment. They take time to play, time that not everyone has or wants to spare. I'd love to give Labia RPG my 50+ hours of gameplay, but it failed to hold my attention for longer than an hour. And I tried to give it more. I pushed on, despite very much not feeling it. And what did I get for it? Nothing. A Steam ♥♥♥♥ing Trading Card. Thanks, Labia RPG.

The writing didn't even impress me, and that's usually something that can hold together even the stalest RPG experience. Generic fantasy mumbo-jumbo that's too wordy for its own good. A cliché Final Fantasy-esque elemental crystals plotline written by the guys that do the endless paragraphs of lore for Dragon Age that no one ever reads.

Unless you're looking to play a game to beat your meat to because you're such a retro RPG fan, don't bother.

I'm such a retro RPG fan, I love playing games that look like they were made decades ago. This game's bare-bones art style that uses the bare minimum of assets dragged and dropped from a fair use game assets bin out of a cookie-cutter RPG game engine really gets me hard. I loooooooove the fact that I have no ♥♥♥♥ing clue what to do, it's just like when games were poorly translated from Japanese when I was like 8 and didn't know how to ♥♥♥♥ing read in the first place. I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually, there's no school on Monday because of Labor Day so I have a three day weekend. I can just spend the whole weekend in front of my TV with a bowl of Froot Loops and figure this cluster♥♥♥♥ of a game out, it's no big deal. Retro RPG games like this are the only games I can play. You know Final Fantasy IV was the best one? Because it ♥♥♥♥ing was. That was the real Final Fantasy. Everthing after that was so dumb. I miss the old Final Fantasy, when they didn't go to the future. I like games with, like swords and ♥♥♥♥. Do you ever, like, swords? You know? Retro games really are the best. I hate all new games. Yup, they just don't make them the same like they used to.

This game is the equivalent of walking on a treadmill naked, for 30 hours straight without stopping, in a plain white room, in the middle of Siberia. It's something to do.

But you really don't get anything out of it except having exerted yourself in the most basic of ways to take way too long in order to accomplish absolutely nothing.

I already get enough of that every day of my life.

Its a good game overall by the cheap price, didnt play much but enough to talk about the main stuff. Simple mechanics, pixelart and retro sounds.

What ruined the experience, the battle scenarios, just the pics of the monsters ruins a lot the art of the game with pixelart, making it really annoying changing from tiny/pixel images(pretty good ones) to more detailed static images of monsters that cant move aside showing few overlay animations, an example of this its in the top, the third image showing a troll, thats the battle scenario actually.

Another issue, I found the game a bit, just a bit unbalance in the beggining.

The game Its ok by that price, so I can't complain that much, but want you to realize this two issues that might annoy you before buying it.

The first game of the series, and following the Legend of Mysteria (a prequel).

Labyrinths are confusing right? They definitely got it right in this game. I would sometimes spend nearly an hour trying to figure out directions, and I have admittedly exited the game numerous times out of frustration.

In the end, I still completed the game and I have to say, the continuation of the story, it does keep you interested just enough to keep playing and find out what happens in the end.

I quite enjoyed spending countless hours reading through the 'books' within the game, and exploring everywhere to try and gain the best items.

I would definitely recommend this game (and it's prequel)!

I like the look of RPG Maker games and this game used it well. I enjoyed the use of the many terrains.

I did not like the main character, Arres. He was suffering from memory loss, sense of self, and random behaviors so it was hard to get to know him. So much about him felt like a mismatch.

The story felt somewhat typical with the twist being the labyrinths. I did not like the labyrinths most the time. They were tedious and frequently I was at a loss on what to do or where to go.

The turn-based battles, when they weren't over the top random, were enjoyable. We never got to see the enemies hit points and as a strategist I would have liked to see those but now I'm just whining.

Game has promise but due to unappealing storyline and mindless wandering I can not recommend.
