If you have downloaded this game before 9/17/2015, please follow the instructions here to patch it. There is a bug that prevents you from getting any ending if you end up too OP.

This contest deadline was July 26th, and originated from /r/RPGMaker.
Oh, hey, you can read what the contest manager said about this game on the thread!
This game was made a few weeks back for the contest in a total of 8 hours spanning 4-5 days, due to the fact that the Golden Age of Game Mak event was running at the same time.

>> Large filesize due to VX Ace Lite's prebundled RTP.
I'm working on identifying which graphics were not used and thus decrease the filesize, but that may take awhile.

Contest Limitations:
- Use RPGMaker VX Ace Lite
- No custom assets of any kind are allowed. However, usage of the character generator included in the VX Ace Lite is allowed.
- Give the game some sort of silver lining (i.e., some ray of hope)

This game has been slightly tweaked from its original contest entry. Nevertheless, the original contest entry will be submitted alongside the updated one.

What others have said about this game:
"Yes! I'm dead!... wait, why am I so happy about that?" -Korokonee, 2015

Features!
- An unconventional hero
- An unconventional, though not completely cliche-free, story
- FOUR endings! Count 'em, there's four. You can get them by:
cheating (or rather, activating a cheat), dying, strategically murdering people, or playing as normal and getting the default (though not "true") ending

If you get all the endings (and save after/load from the opening scene), it should be about half an hour of gameplay. So it's a rather short game.

The Plot:
You play as a rather generic-looking Evil Overlord's son who is awaiting "visitors" to his father's lair. Little do they know, the visitors have long since ranked up, classed up, and levelled up from their original nooby selves. Do you and your father stand a chance...? And what will the visitors do to you if you don't? (Because you probably don't. Stand a chance, I mean.)

It went on for so long, unnoticed, because nobody said anything xD
Thank you Liberty for illuminating this fact, updating now.

For those of you who have a game that could not end due to the bug, use this patch.

Found a glitch/bug You can talk to the overlord from behind, and if you trigger the heroes from behind, You move one space to the right and the game breaks.

Ahhh god xD
Why are you trying to talk to him from behind... you ca't even see his face through the chair!
... though I suppose I could put something like "Come out and face me, son" if the player was facing the wrong way.

But seriously. Why are you trying to break the game QAQ Please don't break it haha
oohhh
it looks so interesting xD

If I think about it, can I make a playthrough of this? :3

The objective was supposed to be to find paint 0.o
Either way, you're welcome and thanks for playing!

You got most of the endings, good job! Looking at your playthrough, though, it seems that I missed a bug at the church xD And I should probably make the fact that the vial of paint in your inventory is the quest indicator more obvious...

I'm going to put a quote of something you said in the video in this game description :D

Oh, and if you wouldn't mind, could you submit that video to the media tab of this game? (it's here)

Haha, it's fine. I think it'll be interesting for the people who visit the gamepage to read, though :) I'll be taking that quote~
I saw that... xD
Btw
the video should be up now xD
I've only ever gotten two endings no matter what I do, whether I cheat, murder or ignore it altogether.

Not to mention you cannot possibly get two candles .. unless you can somehow access a new map?

Ending spoilers.

If you kill everyone except for the banker, you get a slightly altered version of the painting ending ("Not Alone").
If you kill everyone and hang a painting up at the church, there's the painting ending("Alone").
If you cheat with the statue and beat the hero battle, you get a "Happy End"
If you get killed by anyone after being sealed, you get the "Escape" ending.
Ah, okay, four I really should've thought of.
Thanks!


I still didn't have enough for the second one even after killing everyone - including banker, shopkeepers, pastor and townfolks. Not enough, still not alone.

You also get the Happy End beating the heroes normally (which you easily can .. it's just a waste of time, in a way). But you should know that *chuckle*

That may be a bug on my end (darn, I thought I got them all) I'll check the event when I get home.
Don't worry too much about the "Alone" ending, though. There is literally one sentence of difference depending on whether or not everyone was killed or if one person survived.

EDIT: Changed the way the game checks variables, maybe it will work better now for future play.

And yeah, it's still possible. It'll just take awhile xD It's actually easier to beat the boss in earlier versions of the game, because their attack power was even lower than it is now. The boss doesn't 1-hit-KO you like most unwinnable boss fights do.

As for the one sentence, it's "Too bad nobody in Sunnydale will ever see the
true magnificence of Colby's genius."
Had a bug when I tried to 'buy paint' from the shopkeeps. Went to the Armourer first and it bugged out and now I'm stuck with only 14 paint as I can't get the paint from them. (Got the 14th from the banker). :/

I didn't get this notice for some reason until 6 days later (even checked my notice box for 9/11/2015... nothing)... Sorry for the late reply, and thank you for telling me about this!

Patch: http://rpgmaker.net/games/8019/downloads/7413/

Paste this in the /Data folder. There will be a chest in the middle that will give you the paint you need.

If this was any other RPG, I'd give the player some other item/gold compensation as well, but... they pretty much can just rob the entire bank and steal everything from the shop, so... compensation isn't too helpful xD
