Hello human. Today, I have created the dungeon.

Using my improbably advanced intelligence, combined with the fruits of an exhaustive study of human comedy, I have created the funniest dungeon ever to appear before the eyes of a earthling.

While traversing this dungeon's sprawl, you will be exposed to its enigmatically hilarious influence.

You will acquire every possible means to invoke humour that your primitive human semiotics can comprehend.

You will be transformed into the most efficient vessel of raillery and transport on your planet.

But beware. Some people just don't like to laugh.


A short dungeon crawl created for the RPG Maker VX Ace Lite Cookoff contest.

Clearly this game is far too funny to be interpreted by your primitive human semiotics.

Where has this been all my life?
I'm halfway through my way for the contest entries, but so far this is my favorite one...

I love the premise of the game, it striked me as something "out-of-the-left-field" as they call it. The writing it's of course, hilarious! Even when some things went totally over my head because I don't know who or what were most of the people/things referenced in the game, but I still laughed. Damn that intra-synchronicallity... whatever!

The mapping is really good, you made an exquisite use of the rtp. It's like you wanted to make cram every tile in there, but there's not a single thing that felt out of place. The dungeon design is in itself it's very intuitive. The maps are about big enough and branched out to encourage exploration, but not as much as to overwhelm the player.

The use of the music and sound effects was excellent! I rarely notice this kind of thing in videogames, but in this one every tune, every laughing track really complemented the atmosphere of every occasion... Also, kudos for the Mannheim Steamroller Orchestra's music! There were moments where I just zoned-out listening to it. ;)

The game progression was nicely paced too. Although it got a bit too difficult there at times, or maybe is that I just didn't expect any difficulty at all in a joke game. I don't know... I mean, I appreciate the little challenge, but the moment that you realize you're grinding or farming for money, is the moment that you think: "Bummer. This game is not so funny anymore". I would have preferred easier battles, so I could just keep going from one of the scenes with the Alien to the next one...

Anyway. Congrats on a job well done! =)

THanks! I'm glad you enjoyed. :) Do you know Mannheim Steamroller?
I love their music! But more to the point, I always fancied playing a game where 'Earthrise' was the victory battle theme. ;)

O rly! Then we are of the same mind. :) I have all their discs except the Christmas ones.

Certainly do an LP if you want. :) Although this game has some balancing issues and I don't really care to work on it more to fix it. :\
Sweet thanks. I recorded half an hour or so, but was waiting on a response to do anything with it. I'm enjoying it so far. Very odd, but I think that is what you were going for.

It was pretty enjoyable experience from start to end. *Insert Laughing Audience here*
Intro was really made well. Really loved the music (22 minutes tv episode for a battle, seems legit) and it's dark humour.

Just a one thing bothered me, the download size, it's pretty big for a one hour long game. I suggest using "tiny png" or something similiar png compressor, you'll probably get about %50 smaller game size with it without any quality loss.

Ahh, thanks for the suggestomend but I probably won't bother for a joke game like this. :) It's probably mostly the Dinosaurs episode that takes up all the space anyway. Glad you did enjoy!
I remember playing this game a little during the "May Media Madness Month" and nearly p**sed myself with laughter it was so god damn funny.

But maaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnn can this game be exteremly brutal during some parts.

You should make another one, Gibs; have the alien dungeon master come back -- with a vengeance.

When we do voiceovers for the alien I'll give you a call. :}
This was great. It was clever, meta, creepy and (yes) funny. Great use of visual effects and sound especially, and nice job doing interesting things with the RTP by blending things together so well.
This game disturbs me, but I can't keep myself from laughing. Words cannot describe how much I adore this.
