There are some things worse than death...

And hopefully Nepenthe isn't one of them!:)
Um... yeah. I'm just popping in here to say thank you for all of the lovely reviews I've been getting. It's really been a pleasure seeing what you've gotten out of this weird game that I made.
On that note:
The best way to help me (or any developer) grow right now is by leaving honest reviews, positive or negative. I think I can fairly speak for most devs in saying that good (or exceptionally bad) reviews can help player growth in remarkable ways. It also helps me get to do things like classified: coming soon, and be taken more seriously when trying to get noticed by the press. So: leave reviews! Not just on my games, but on any game that you think could use some attention. You have no idea how much it helps.

Also, I'm very excited to share that I'm working hard on my next game, and you can follow me on Discord to see (and participate) in the dev process.

Reviews

“There is charm packed into every nook and cranny... The game’s ‘self-aware’ style of humour when observing interactables is wickedly funny in places, and your perseverance in exploring every detail of the environment does not go unrewarded. Yitz, clearly, is a connoisseur of RPGs and knows how to squeeze humour from basic gameplay elements.”

“Reminiscent of all of the made-up video games I'd scribble in the margins of my homework at school when I was a kid”

“The flowchart for this thing must have been complicated as hell”

About This Game

You wake up with no memory. Your day is starting off great!

Nepenthe is a hand-drawn RPG with a terrible sense of humor. Set in the strange world of Carithia, you play as a mysterious bald dude who lost his memory. Yes, you read that right. Meet some very polite monsters, and battle both them and your sense of self-dignity in epic bullet-hell fight scenes.

Definitely not a potato in a trench coat

Sporting a childish hand-drawn art style, Nepenthe is sure to either make you love it at first glance, or throw your computer away. The developer of Nepenthe takes no responsibility for such actions, and recommends drinking chamomile tea. “It’s really soothing,” he says. “You should really try it one day,” he says. “What was I talking about?” He asks. There is an awkward pause.

designed for non-psychopaths, mostly

With three different endings, and countless side-quests, Nepenthe is designed for ultimate replayability. This can get quite annoying if you need to share a computer with someone else. Trust me. Almost every monster can be spared, for added challenge and less violence. They can also be killed - don’t worry, you psychopaths! If you enjoy dad-jokes or Chinese water torture, Nepenthe is for you.

Nepenthe is designed for both casual and hardcore gamers alike.

  • Explore two modes: "Adventure" or "Story," to find the play-style that best suits you.
  • "Adventure" mode is a bullet-hell extravaganza, with ever increasing difficulty as the game progresses.
  • "Story" mode's battles are easy one-click things, designed for those who just want the story, not the gameplay.
  • Enjoy stunning hand-drawn art along the way
