Enter the world of Grayscale, an island kingdom with a terrible secret brewing at its heart! Enjoy the retro feel of Gameboy-esque colors, sounds, music, and graphics! A short story game at its core, the end product will probably run for an hour or two.

Play as the son of a nation leader who falls victim to a heinous plot, then make your escape with the help of a friend! Rally the surrounding villages to retake the kingdom from the villain in charge, and recruit a cast of swappable characters along the way with a simple tavern based party system! Random Encounters driving you batty? King of Grayscale features avoidable combat, with battlegrounds to utilize at working up your xp instead!

Hey guys! This is my submission for the RMN 2017 Birthday event. Listen and loin as I prattle on about filler game features!

-Eight playable characters!
-Classic Gameboy lack of colors!
-Four letter character names!
-Level 20 cap!
-Endless hype for a super short gam!

RPG Maker 28th Birthday for KoG!

Hey guys! I was closing in on the completion of King of Grayscale, but then out of nowhere a release something event shows up literally days before I intended to be finished. Welp, all this means is now I can go back and make that bonus dungeon and relationship system I had in mind! Everything else except some dialogue before the final encounter and the ending itself is otherwise finished.

Possibly more to come over the next two weeks, and now you have a guaranteed date by when this game will be fully released! Lucian awaits!

I added a demo! Enjoy folks! Probably about 30 mins of gameplay.
Hi Illy!

I've downloaded the game and will play it today! Looking forward to the old school experience!

Update: I'm lovin' it! I just finished the content so far and I've got Ashe at lvl 9 or 10 right now. I grinded gold and XP at the battlegrounds in front of the coal mines to buy all the characters the best available equipment. I've picked up Seri, Byle, and Podo as extra characters. Though I got Podo last because I missed the chest containing a book in the town of Soot.

I really liked how Seri learned new spells.. I thought that was a nice touch. I only died once at the Elder's house, I didn't grind first or buy new equipment before going into that fight!

I've subscribed, keep up the great work!
Demo up? Nice. I'm going to give this a shot sometime. I liked the super keen retro aesthetic when I saw it in the event thread. :D
