The available download is extremely unpolished! You have been warned :D

The idea is simple: make a traditional RPG chain game with a few twists. Every member has a few weeks to finish a 'chapter' in the game. They can take the story in any direction they want--from adding characters to making a minigame-only chapter to creating entire story arcs on new planets--as long as the storyline remains intact. The game will primarily be a traditional RPG.

To keep things even more simple, the core object of each chapter is to obtain a special item. Whether these items ultimately mean something, or how they interact with the overall story is yet to be seen...

How will the chips land in RMN's Chain Game?!

This Chain Game's storyline theme is FOOD, though participants do not have to get too carried away with foodisms.


The Galaxy has enjoyed peace since the Great War between McDonalds and Burger King resulted in McDonalds reigning supreme. However, trouble is once again afoot. A disease called the "White Death" has been infecting people on a nomadic research space station. It is up to a pair of master chefs to find the ingredients to the cure! Along the way, they will encounter new faces, new enemies, and shocking secrets as they search the galaxy for the ingredients...

DISK ONE - Chapters 1-5

"Disk One" will comprise the first five chapters and will be the scope of the first demo.

Intro - Dudesoft
As two chefs arrive on a space station, they are quickly set to work. Find the special ingredients necissary to cure a rare case of White Death. While the hero Ryoo races off to start his quest, Master Kokku sticks around to keep an eye on things. What lies in store, is a mystery that only a chef can solve!

Chapter 1 - Deckiller
The planet of Kioka was once the sight of a massive battle between the Burger King and McDonalds empires. The planet is now a wasteland, complete with overgrown ruins, caverns on the verge of collapse, and other hazards. However, out of this destruction has sprouted a fine delicacy: the Mushrooms of Courage. Ryoo and his party must acquire some of these Mushrooms as the first ingredient to a recipe that will hopefully cure the White Death that has been plaguing a deep-space science station! But the mission will not be easy...

Chapter 2 - Deckiller
The Turnips of Vigor were once a critical component to many dishes. Sadly, the Turnips grow on only a handful of planets, and Zeris is by far the closest to our protagonists and the science station. The problem? Zeris is an underdeveloped planet, and interference on such worlds is frowned upon in the realm of galactic politics. To make matters worse, Ryoo befriends a local farm girl, Mira, who finds herself in the dead center of a heated struggle: another group is after the Turnips, and they are making things quite personal for this young woman! Is this group after the same recipe, or are they just looking to make a quick space buck?

Chapter 3 - ldida1
The planet of Mava is in a state of civil war! A resistance faction is struggling against the might of the local KFC empire. A mysterious faction has been providing the resistance with weapons. KFC won't give Ryoo any of their special MSG, so he has no choice but to break into their headquarters...

Chapter 4 - Liberty
Ryoo and his friends hear of the annual Cook-Off on the tourist planet, Aesma, where the grand prize is the rare Golden All-Fruit! They head to join the contestants, only to become entangled in the mechanizations of the elusive Head of the Jester Guild. Can they find a way to win the Cook-Off and aid their newest colleague? Will they have time to enjoy the minigames and distractions that the Oasis of the Galaxy has to offer? Find out in Chapter 4!

Chapter 5 - Deckiller
The gang travels to the gas giant of Xalkyre to track down the Xalkdroid Allspice - a special spice made from the strangely edible byproduct of Zentra Gas mining. There, they meet a strange mining robot named XALK-8311, who helps them break into the Allspice Silos being stored in an abandoned gas mine. However, a shadowy organization is preparing to make a bold move - one that may turn everything upside down.

DISK TWO - Chapters 6-10+

"Disk Two" will hopefully feature five (or more!) chapters from five (or more!) fresh members of the chain game! We will aim for a two week period between chapters, in which time you can do as much as you want. We'll tie up loose ends in prepartion for the second demo. Liberty and I will fill in any gaps in the signups.

Chapter 6 - OPEN!
Chapter 7 - OPEN!
Chapter 8 - OPEN!
Chapter 9 - OPEN!
Chapter 10 - OPEN!

Disk Three - Chapters 11-12
The penultimate and final chapters of the chain game will take place after the ingredients are gathered. The plot at this point will be, well, up to you guys! Who knows what direction it will take! Who knows what the result of the recipe will be, as well as what happens with all the intrigue that was set up in Disk 1!

Back to the Dudesoft--- I mean, Future!

It's been well over a year since I started this thing. Can we call it a train-wreck? No. What IS finished is brilliant. It's a farcry shorter/fewer participants than I envisioned; but that's how the cookie crumbled.
So, since I am currently in self-appointed limbo, I'm going to get this broken down buggy going again.
My plans include: a new intro, which will be basically extending my intro segment from the front to the current start-of-game. Also, a new chapter or two, depending on how productive I can be.
Since Liberty and Deckiller are busy, it seems, I will retroactively be taking temporary control of this vessel, and calling out for new participants to come forward. I'll get the call out after I'm well into finishing my new segment, so that no one is left waiting.

Thank you, and goodnight.


Will have an idea soon! :3 Perhaps a demo...perhaps not. We'll have to address things.
Lib and I are working on some stuff right now. Once SDDW demo and the two Halloween contests are done, we'll probably get to work on pasting together a demo!
Hm i Wonder if i can pul somethi goff here/
You know, Salt World's been discussing the possibility of opening their Chain Game to other sites, especially as some of its former members are here. PErhaps we should do the same with this?
always a dudesoft, never a soft dude.
Are they really? Yay, my work won't go wasted!

It's a possibility, yeah, Tyger. Let's wait until Deckiller gets this back from Liberty. She put a lot of work into her chapter. It sucks that she's AWOL... but I'd hate to see her work wasted.
Yeah, I hope we can get back on track soon!
Hm i Wonder if i can pul somethi goff here/
I hope she gets back soon as I have some ideas for continuing things. If she's gone too long we may have to go on without her. IF Idida's done it would be nice to see what he has.
always a dudesoft, never a soft dude.
idida finished his section a long time ago.
Hm i Wonder if i can pul somethi goff here/
AH. Look, I didn't mean to be rude at all. I'm just hoping for a cut of the action as this seems like a good game for me to get my feet wet; the core cast and setting gives me a framework to work within and build on, which in this case is helpful. I'm hoping Mira's culture shock and effect on the crew are being addressed- I personally feel that subplot shows lots of promise. I'd love to see any more Chapters if they become available. Add me to the list of possible participants please.
I'll also keep you up to date on the other Chain game.
I'd be more than happy to pass this on - just have to get the finished Chapter 3 again, lol.
always a dudesoft, never a soft dude.
Where the poo is Liberty? It must suck to break computers.
Uh, my computer isn't broken anymore. Just... generally distracted. ^.^;
I don't mind if it's passed on since I can work on re-finishing my chapter at any time (the maps I need are all done, I just have to edit them and add the relevant events). I'd just have to give over the completed maps and viola. (They end up back at the Station so having the new chapter leave from there and connect later would work.)

Just saying. ;p
The Curse of Frank Black
Has it really been a year since this was started? Wow, hardly seems that long but still waiting impatiently for this. It's pretty awesome.

Any idea on a % complete?
Not sure. But my vision is probably about...20-25 percent or so, counting Liberty's. The download-available version is most of the first two chapters and is probably the first 10 percent. Let us know what you think so far :D

Are you talkin' to me? Are YOU talkin' to ME? haha

If yes, I already posted some feedback on the blog, remember? With my awesome Yes avatar.
Planet Earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do.
I'm gonna try the demo to check if it's within my skill capabilities, if it is and if you're still accepting participants I'd like to get some of the action.

Ok, In the 2nd chapter now, I'm really enjoying this game, do add me to the Possible Participants list if there's still any room left :)

Dont worry, when you reach chapter 3 it will no longer be fun. Thats the chapter i did.

*bitch slaps Idida1 for 5 full minutes*
Don't you dare devalue your work soldier!!

...the demo, however, ends after the "Base Core" boss in chapter 2 (I can indeed leave the enemy base, but the story stops right there), so I won't be able to try out your chapter yet. But I'm sure it's just as fun as the others.
*Attempts to get to his feet, but keeps falling over*

Sorry sir...
I myself can decide how a food tastes just by looking, and by looking at this food-ish game, I can say, it'll be one heck of a chain game!
