Reviews

“Video Game Fables is this decade’s most boldly intelligent, exhilaratingly enjoyable and ingeniously innovative RPG…I simply cannot stress just how important this game is.”
10 / 10 – GameCrater

“If you’re looking for an amusing, lighthearted RPG with fast, innovative, hard, turn-based combat set in a creative, colourful environment where you can explore to satisfy your paper Mario craving, I highly recommend Video Game Fables. This game embodies everything I look for in a video game. Congratulations to that one developer for generating such a great work of art.”
8 / 10 – Hardcore Gamers Unified

“Video Game Fables is a very fun meta-narrative RPG that can offer some lighthearted adventure, while also keeping you on your toes with an active battle system. While unfortunately short, it is worth experiencing this game’s unique take on the genre, both in its story and the gameplay mechanics.”
8 / 10 – EIP

About This Game



"Video Game Fables" is a fun, lighthearted RPG adventure set in an abandoned RPG game world that hasn't had a player in decades.

The world's script gets completely ruined by someone calling herself "The Forsaken Princess." It's up to Aru (the world's princess), Nate (an NPC aspiring to be a hero), and Tator (the villain's son) to get things back to normal...or maybe change everything forever.

  • Lighthearted humor throughout the dialog, characters, and world.
  • Fun narrative and story that doesn't rely on parody and has its own identity.
  • Challenging, fast-paced, turn-based battles that require strategy and quick thinking.
  • Colorful and vibrant stylized graphics.
  • Unique XP and leveling system which lets you allocate resources to setup your party strategically.
  • Skill crafting, light class system that changes play styles slightly depending on equipped weapon, weapon upgrades, mining, fishing, simple gardening, and many more fun features.
  • Developed by one person.

Original music by Levc EGM.
