About This Game


A turn-based RPG where you play as DEATHBULGE, a 3-piece band of dysfunctional goofballs who unknowingly stumble into a cursed battle of the bands contest, where all entrants can attack with music and must fight to the death.


Kick down every single door you come across. If you're gonna rudely enter every RPG house despite lack of invite, might as well enter in style.


Customise the band with 9 musically-themed classes to choose from, each with their own attacks, perks and COOL OUTFIT. Inspire your bandmates as a BUSKER or recklessly deal huge damage at the cost of damaging yourself as a HEADBANGER.


Fancy combat system that focuses on MEASURE EFFECTS. What happens BETWEEN turns makes all the difference, bringing real-time elements into the turn-based combat.

Other features:
  • Sew patches of band logos onto your BATTLE JACKET for extra perks in battle.
  • No Random Encounters! Monsters will be shown on the field for your avoiding leisure, and 3 different FIELD ABILITIES with which to avoid them.
  • Unique item system. Say good bye to individually stocking up on consumable items! Once you get a piece of MERCH, you keep it forever, and it simply costs STOCK to use, a refillable global resource for all your merch.
  • Original soundtrack that'll make you say things like SIIICK and OH RIGHT ON.
  • Incredibly rich world boasting a wide variety of colourful characters whose dialogue changes as you progress through the game. Every single NPC is unique, armed with their own dialogue portaits to express themselves TO THE MAX.
  • Even the ITEMS have personality. Say bye bye to the generic "health potion". Local NPC Barry Friendly is taking care of the soothing beverages around here. Sink into a warm cup of BARRY FRIENDLY'S TEA whenever your health is low. Maybe you'll even have the pleasure of meeting Barry at some point.
  • Late game dating segment.
