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!

First my submission for the RMN 2017 Birthday Event, and now finished as of the RPGMaker 28th Birthday event. It's been a long and crazy year, and I'm really thankful for everyone that's come along the way. Enjoy these features!

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

Oops! Version 1.4 out, now.

Hey peoples! Turns out as big as an update 1.3 was, I couldn't help but notice some bugs I missed. So a quick patch to these and everything should be working as intended now!

- Fixed where the majority of the early game bosses were using the normal battle music as a result of an eventing error.
- Fixed an eventing error in the Obsidian Forest that treated the boss there as an additional monster for the overworld map tally.
- Updated areas to prevent graphics from clashing if you changed the party order.

I'll be watching Riggy2k3's stream of the 1.4 edition to see if there are any other bugs to squish!

I took a suggestion from peoples opinions about Ruby Radiance and tried to change up NPC's dialogue a bit throughout the game. One NPC in Platina drops the hint!


So there IS something you can do with that place! :o

I never really went back to it after finishing the game, and now you've got me curious to see if I can crack the puzzle this time.

I beat the game! That was quite a treat! Really loved the old school feel, as well as getting to hear all that game boy RPG music! What a nice nostalgia trip, thank you! :DDD
Thanks again, Unity!

Did you find the Achromatic Temple? Ohohoho~


No I didn't! I'll have to poke around a bit more :D

Hi Unity! Glad you're having fun with it!

It's a point system. Going through areas with characters in your party, and participating in battles with them gets points with them. Whoever has the most points at the event gets the scene!


Super cool! I'm very tempted to see if I can get some of the other characters' scenes as well :DDDD

Really really enjoying this game! I'm at the final dungeon.

What determines which character you get a scene with before the final assault? I got mine with Raya, but that's not too surprising as she's been in my party pretty much every since I got her on my team :D

I played the game, excellent! I came until the swamp, but I died there and forget to autosave after the second village, so I gave up :P
But the game is very cool, amazing work. I recommend.

I love this.


Thank you for the comments, folks! If you really enjoyed this game, keep an eye on my profile page - a new game development announcement that may interest players of King of Grayscale should be dropping sometime soon!

Thanks! I appreciate any and all feedback. Glad you're enjoying it!

Gack! I SEE

No problem, download is now updated. You shouldn't need to install the gam, and the .ini file should be edited to bypass the RTP requirement.

Happy gaming!
