MetaRPG by MiniBobbo

[raw]
made by MiniBobbo for LD32 Warm-Up (-)
Here's this week's game MetaRPG. I have all the basic mechanics in place except buying equipment. Basically it is an extremely linear RPG where you just walk to the right along a set path until you win. Battles are fought automatically in the background so you don't have to do anything.

As a matter of fact, it is easier to just hold the right arrow until you win. Dying sends you back to town with full HP. You lose half your gold, but right now the only point of money is to stay at the inn and refill your HP. So just hold right.

I didn't have time for actual content creation because I worked 50+ hours and spent this weekend cleaning the basement. If I decide to finish this it will have multiple towns, NPCs, dungeons and many more jokes and tropes about the RPG genre. But for now it doesn't.

Not sure if this was intentional, but holding up works the same as walking, except without the danger of going farther into the danger zone. Just a bug to watch out for in the future, if it even is a bug. 8)
