Story

The Philosopher's Stone, an object of untold power that has been a part of many myths and legends throughout history. It is said to grant the user immortality and immense power; however, it has been lost to the ages for centuries.

The year is 2012. It just seems like another boring day in the White House until President Obama receives word that the White House is under attack from unknown intruders. Not one to miss a beat, he soon learns that the attackers, who come from another world, plan to overtake Earth and are searching for the fabled Philosopher's Stone. Obama knows that he can't let the aliens find the Philosopher's Stone and use its power to take over the world, so he ventures forth and begins a search for it himself that will take him to the far corners of the Earth, through outer space, and even the edge of existence. But they aren't the only players in this game, and the closer Obama gets to the truth, the closer the Earth is to its end.

Setting

The game primarily takes place on Earth, which is obvious if you've read the story section up there. It's the same Earth that we live on, so there's nothing weird about it or anything (like it didn't grow an extra continent). Unless you want a two month lecture on the history of the Earth and what it's like geographically and climatically, I think we'll just leave it at that. There are also other locations; however, such as in outer space.

Characters




Gender: Male
Age: 50
Personality: Energetic and positive (most of the time anyways), Obama is the perfect hero for all your adventuring needs.
Biography: He's the President of the United States. Need I say more?


Gender: Male
Age: It's really up in the air with this one.
Personality: Always happy and willing to help out, which is probably why he's stuck with Obama.
Biography: He's the last of the Time Lords and leads a life of adventure and time travel with his space ship, the TARDIS.


Gender: Male
Age: 47
Personality: Kind of serious and seems almost annoyed most of the time for being commonly mistaken as 'The One'.
Biography: He's an actor who somehow got wrapped up in this mess. He's almost definitely/definitely not 'The One'.


Gender: Male
Age: Pretty dang old.
Personality: More on the serious side, but courageous and daring, which is surprising for someone of his age.
Biography: He wrote Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, those books everyone has to read in school.




Gender: Male
Age: Who knows?
Personality: Polite to a point, but a bit arrogant when you get to know him.
Biography: The leader of the aliens, he commands General Guy and Balrog. Other than that he's a mystery.


Gender: Male
Age: Old enough to be a general.
Personality: He just won't shut up about tanks and all things military. He even talks like a military officer.
Biography: He is one of the three main leaders of the aliens. He commands Balrog.


Gender: Male?
Age: This thing can age?
Personality: Almost always in a chipper mood, he's bright and energetic, although not too bright.
Biography: He's a lieutenant in the aliens' army. He's a lunchbox of some sort. Or is he a toaster? Who knows.



A mysterious group of people. Just who are they and how are they involved in all this?

Credits
I've used so many sprites and tilesets for this (or I am going to, if I haven't already) that I'm not going to bother naming individuals, because then the list would be a thousand names long and the in-game credits would last 30 minutes. So here's a condensed version.

More Song Error Woes

It has just recently come to my attention that there is yet another song that people are having trouble with. It's the Doctor Who theme, and it plays near the end of chapter 2, so as I type, I am uploading a fix for it that just takes the song out. If you're having the same issue, redownload the game and transfer your save over.

HOPEFULLY there won't be any more songs that have issues like this, but I don't know. Like I've said before, I can't tell if a song won't work on players' computers, since they work just peachy on mine, so just tell me if there are any more troubles, I guess, and I'll pop up a fix as soon as I can.

I don't know about anyone else, but I am so sick of this error and having to reupload the game because of it. The sacrifices we make for good music. So, here's hoping that this is the last of it.

Maybe you just need a break from game making for a while???

Anyways, I fully understand. Good luck with your next big, epic adventure. I’ll see you around the boonies. ^^

I am tired of Earth. These people. I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.

"The Grind" claims it's next victim.

In any case, good luck in your future endeavours!
Back when I first started making Obama RPG, I had visions of grandeur, an RPG that would try to soar high, like Barkley Shut Up and Jam did. At first, the story was simple, but it expanded. And expanded. And expanded, until I had what I thought was a good game. Then, the first hiatus hit. I had lost the motivation to go on, and yet...I felt like I owed everyone. I felt like it was wrong of me to just up and leave it. Like it was my masterpiece and I needed to complete it. It gnawed at me. Day after day after day. Month after month. Yet, I still didn't want to make it.

So, I worked on it, on and off for a little while as a burst of motivation came, then came the next big hiatus. Approximately a year long. Still, I had that gnawing feeling. A voice in my head telling me "you need to finish this game, or else..." So, I picked it up again last month or whenever it was. Then it consumed my life.

Every waking hour I worked on it. I worked on it well past when I would usually go to bed. I exhausted myself, but time and time again I kept going, telling myself "you picked it up again, so you HAVE to finish it for the people waiting for it". This game became my life. It defined me. Heck, when I first put up that download for disk 1 and there was problems with the sound that I didn't know how to fix, I basically had a panic attack.

But all for what? Was I really doing it to entertain? No, I don't think so. I think I was trying to sate that voice in my head forcing me to work on the game. Trying to finally end this chapter in my life that had just become nothing more than an itch that you can't scratch. It had its claws in me, and it was never going to take them out.

And then, I lost motivation once more. Right after disk 1 released. I was tired. I still am tired of making games. I never wanted to go back to it. But there, still, was that gnawing feeling. "You have to work on this." I just bought RPG Maker VX Ace the other day and started making a horror game in an attempt to sate that voice with something else, but then I just get the same feeling with that game.

In all honesty, I never should have started this game. True, I've learned a lot through making it, but it has become its own little hell. Actually, not just Obama RPG. Making games has in general, given the recent RPG Maker VX Ace experiment.

I'm not cut out for this. That much is clear. I've always been a player of games, and have wanted to make games, but that doesn't mean that I should, or that everything will be just peachy when I try.

I appreciate all that my seven years of using RPG Maker has given me. It's given me a lot of heartbreak, and a lot of fun. A lot of stories, and a lot of learning experiences. But I just can't keep doing this to myself. It's far more trouble than it's worth. The voice in my head told me to make disk 2, and I just said "no".

And now, I feel like a great chain has lifted off of me. I'm free from Obama RPG. I have my life back. And that's the main reason I cancelled Obama RPG (although the legality thing is still a big concern).
Tell me is a joke,why you cancelled it?
No, I'd just rather not even have the possibility hang around that this could come back and bite me in the butt later.

I mean, I know many other RPG maker games use music from Final Fantasy and whatnot, but I don't care. I'm just so tired of this game. I'm done.

I think I'm pretty well done with RPG Maker in general.
Yeah, I'd like to know that too.

so did you actually get a takedown notice, or what?
She's the final boss that's pulling all the strings from behind the scenes, right?

Oh, you'll see Michelle sometime in the game. Believe me, I haven't forgotten about here. But I don't want to spoil anything.
BTW, does Michelle, his wife, know what her husband been up to this entire time in this game? I mean, he's hanging out with freakin' Keanu Reeves for god sakes! Surely that's got to raise some suspicion about what he's up to.

(Unless he got a "divorce")
Very well done presentation of your game in your blog. Better than most of the non-parody game presentations.
Everything about this whole thing just seems so wrong…

…AND I LOVE IT!!! :D

*subscribes a million times over*
This game makes me laugh, lol. I like it.
just wanted to let you know that I love the look and sound of this one and am subbing as I type. sounds funny and awesome at the same time.
Thanks a lot! I'm always glad to hear that someone enjoys Obama RPG, even if they just say they like it for how ridiculous it sounds. Lord knows I'm working my butt off to complete it (I think it's all I've done the past few days), so it's always good to get some feedback.

I'm making good progress right now and I'm pushing myself to try to finish it in the next 2-3 weeks, so hopefully you'll be able to play the full game soon enough. :)
I Love This Game And I Like The Things You Put In From Golden Sun!
Hahaha man!
I'm going to download it.
LockeZ
I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.
