What da heck is this?

This game is the product of people in the Gaming World community as well as adjacent communites including the Something Classic and RPGMaker.net Communities.

For those new to the concept of a chaingame, it's a game made by a group of people in which you build off of what the person before you created. Chaingames are a long running tradition in the RPG Maker community dating back to the start when RPG Maker 2000 first released.

Introduction to The Story

Long ago, in an ancient land known as "Gaming World", the precursors found a relic known as the Maker's Mark.

With this power, they were able to create the worlds of their dreams. If they could imagine it, then it would come into being.

Out of the darkness of the hearts of man emerged the Ghastly Darklord. He was bent on bringing about an Age of Destruction.

After a great and seemingly unending war,he was trapped away far beneath the Earth along with the Maker's Mark.

The descendants escaped the now salt encrusted planet, hoping to find a new home.

You are an explorer traveling the stars. In your travels, you hear that nature is slowly returning to the Gaming World.

The legend of the Maker's Mark intrigues you, and so you decide to go down to the planet yourself to explore.

Chapter 5 has some of the best writing I've ever seen in an RPGmaker game. Definitely worth playing.

YOO!
LET'S GO!!!

EDIT: Oh...passability error.


EDIT 2: "Adventurer, to pass, thou must pass through one of these doors, but while one leads you on the right path, the other leads to death. You may ask us any question, but remember; one of us always lies while the other always tells the truth."
TL;DR there's more than one Ragnar here.

Yoo message me if you would like and lemme know how you got the duplicate Ragnars lmao

Ah, I see what the problem is. Gonna fix it and will patch it later. :D
Patched it up, should be good now. Lemme know if you run into any other issues.

Added a patches file with just the updated maps and database.

Agreed. For anyone who hasn't played this yet: don't let the screenshots fool ya. this is actually a solid title and a great way to start off 2024 if you haven't played this yet. I'm still making my way through Chapter 4.

Chapter 1 and 2 are great, very funny. Chapter 3 could be spun off into it's own game. incredibly well polished, very well done.

Looking forward to playing through Chapters 5 and 6.
Great stuff here. an early highlight of 2024.
I made it through chapter 4.
Everyone needs to play chapter 5.
Anyone whose touched rpgmaker needs to play chapter 5.
Easily Excellence In Narrative for 2024 here, holy shit.
Posting a teaser from chapter 6.

I love this game, it's so funny, but then it goes into a lot of things
no one really talks about with rpgmakers and rpgmaking.
it's very introspective and comes full circle if you've been using rpgmaker for a long time.
You don't really need to know the history of gamingw to enjoy this.

...I still can't believe bitmapkid did that. this is like the beauty of the chaingame.
he took what was there up to chapter 4 and asked some hard hitting questions
about the game you're playing, but also the current state of the world we live in.
a regular rpgmaker "writer", would not be able to pull this off.
he's very sincere about it and introspective and then he doused it with more comedy.
But the stuff he says here is so memorable, it sticks with you.
Great, great, stuff here.♥
