OATH is a turn-based RPG, serious in tone, set in a Medieval style world.
This is iddalai's entry for the 1.44 Floppy Disk Event (which consisted in creating a complete game smaller than 1.44 MB, in only 14 days!).

Your choices matter and will direct the course of the story, you always decide what the main character will say.

SETTING:

Every 16 years the High Trials are open to test and bring forth a new generation of Elite Guards meant to defend the venerable Royal family of the auspicious Kingdom of Ryla.

You play as EDRO, whose father JAOTHUL, is a battle instructor in the Royal Army. In recent years, EDRO's family has fallen on hard times and they desperately need to secure a higher position among the Royal retainers to survive.

JAOTHUL hopes to convince the King to let his son enter the High Trials and trusts him to be able to conquer them and secure a position in the Elite Royal Guard, hence dispelling their predicament.

The King's progeny, however, won't take lightly to a low caste retainer attempting to conquer the Trials and becoming part of their Elite Guards.


Will you be able to complete the High Trials or even be given the chance to enter?
Will you follow a path of servitude or one of vengeance?
Will you bow down or hold your head up high?



Will you take the OATH?

New "demo" out now!

It's as much as I managed to make of the game during the event. It's more or less a demo since it's still incomplete and missing some things. But it's playable and has been balanced.

The event version was much too hard and I didn't have enough time to test it.

Thank you, Ulevo! I'll try to release the complete version as soon as I can.
I really enjoyed the rebalanced version, this time with Ephna in my party. Well done!

Thanks, Avee! I'm still not functioning at 100%, but I managed to make some changes that made the game much more reasonable to play. I usually don't release games without testing a lot (as you can tell from my other releases) but this time I thought it would be ok and I really wanted to participate in the event... but it didn't go that well at all, the game really needed a rebalancing.
