A downloadable game for Windows

Summary: After waking up in a strange game room, a brave but clueless soldier must play the games of the bizarre hosts or remain trapped forever.

Description: This game is a collection of three mini-games made as a submission for the RPG Maker March Madness Mini-Game Contest.

  • Cipher - A cleric gets garbled messages from spirits. You help her decipher what they are. The ciphering process is randomized with each attempt. If you watched "Gravity Falls", you'll probably like this.
  • Number Guess - A witch picks a number, and the hero has three chances to guess it right.
  • Cobweb-Heart-Light Bulb - It's "Rock-Paper-Scissors", but uses the default speech balloons of RPG Maker.
  • There are six secret achievements to discover.

Which RPG Maker version was this made in?

RPG Maker VX Ace. The sprites and tilesets are from the "Time Fantasy" DLC.

Would you be interested in porting it over to MV to be distributed onto Mac?

Just use Wine, Luke. Forget about port, it will be buggy.

What makes you think it'll be buggy?

My experience. I played RPG Maker MV games under Windows (in virtual machine), tried to use Wine in order to run Windows version under Linux, played native Linux ports and even played Web-based ports. I frequently encountered bugs and glitches that made MV games unplayable (a game just won't start) or extremely uncomfortable (like screen that flicks like crazy) or irritable (game freezes from time to time. Sometimes it can even freeze the whole computer). It's also bloatware because when using fancy effects it becomes painfully slow, besides it consumes memory as crazy (Compared to RPG Maker VX Ace). The nicest MV games that I met were just hopelessly freezing from time to time (without freezing the whole computer), making me constantly save my game.

Time Fantasy is compatible with RPG Maker MV. Just got to buy it though, but I don't mind.

So would you like to see if we can port it over to MV?

Hi Sight21!

Thank you for the offer but I have to decline for now. An MV version (and a Mac version) for this game is planned, but I would need to change the code from Ruby to Javascript. I'm working on a new game at the moment so I can't focus on updating this one now. If you're looking to collaborate on a new game, look me up on the RPG Maker forum. I'll be free for collabs as soon as I finish my current project.

Thanks and good luck with your game projects! :)

Fair enough. Weird thing is that I'm also on that website too!
