Plenty of humor and miles of turn-based grinding combat will help you wear down some precious time, in this home-baked, story-driven RPG death-crawl.

Reviews

“The writing is both excellent and extremely funny.”
BatPrince

“I'm sure someone might like it. But, let's just say the main character's name is Harry Longshaft for one thing. The opening conversation talks about a man who's legs were torn off and face attacked by a snake. You meet this man shortly thereafter and he's held by a cyclops woman who's his bride. The plot in just these first few minutes is too crazy for me. I don't even know what to make of it.”
Knightly Knave

“I was expecting a game, rather than a crappy story.”

About This Game

Story



Entranced into a deep dreamscape by the hallucinogenic spores of a mind-devouring alien creature, a young explorer is unwittingly recast a challenger in a realm of unconscious fantasy, where empowered with super-human abilities of might and magic, he must crawl a punishing gauntlet of dark entities and monsters to defeat the labyrinth of his captor's mind game—proving himself a champion morsel worthy of digestion.


Features



  • Comical story-driven RPG with punishing strategic turn-based combat.
  • Animated custom battle system, with enemy bribe option, stat-driven turn order
    and Action-Point charging gauges for unleashing special attacks and talents.
  • Choice of party members to customize and balance your own 4-character battle crew.
  • Randomized loot & spell drops—no two players will ever receive all the same items or skills.
  • Rare enchanted items–rings, amulets and objects–that can be equipped
    to any party member class to channel powerful entities in battle.
  • Immersive and extensive soundtrack.
  • Created and developed by just one nerd.

Development



The Warriorlock was created as a comically-inspired linear RPG, with a lighthearted picturebook-style presentation and original story.

I developed the game by heavily customizing an old VX Ace engine to create a homebrew dungeon crawler, with a 6-core character stat system akin to the original Dungeons & Dragons standard, a hybridized action/turn-based battle system, pre-rendered game paths, randomized treasure drops for nearly all items and spells, and a hand-tailored menu inventory system with detailed descriptions and bonus stat points for steady character progression.

Pro tip: Don't take it too seriously, and you might appreciate it.
