About this game

Things to know before you buy:

* This is a short game: about 90 minutes.
* The background music is anything but medieval. This is by design.
* It’s all a bit weird.

========

Explore what remains of the ancient city of San Francisco and experience dynamic combat in this RPG text game.

What if goblins, ogres, and dragons weren't imagined? What if our ancestors were, unwittingly, foretelling the future? Find yourself in that future, centuries from now, among the ruins of what was once the 21st century – where these terrifying creatures roam freely…

Heavily inspired by modern tabletop RPGs like Dungeon World, this game puts you in the shoes of a young necromancer on a quest. Battle monsters, raise the dead, and explore what remains of the ancient city of San Francisco.

========

Features:

* Dynamic Combat: Simulated to the level of individual body parts. Cleave off someone’s leg, take it, and bash it over their head! A Natural Language Generation system explains what's happening to you in plain English.

* Make Your Choices with Caution: Every action has consequences! Make a mistake in battle and you could lose recruits in your party.

* A Living, Breathing World: Lots of the text isn't pre-written, but generated. The world continues on without you.

* Quick Gameplay: Hop right into the fray! Experience automatic saving and no loading screens.

========

This game is a labor of love of a single writer-programmer, Filip Hracek, and a single illustrator, Alec Webb. It is relatively short, and can be finished in about 90 minutes.

The gameplay is closer to tabletop role playing games than to traditional computer RPGs. Instead of presenting you with numbers and graphics, the game tells you what's happening, the same way a dungeon master would. Things are still meticulously tracked in the background, but there are no big tables to look at or tactical maps to read.

It was definitely fun, and captivating. I feel it was too short, however. It'd be cool if there was an economy system, especially considering there is a market, but nothing to buy or sell there. Once you got past the *COPIOUS* dialogue in the beginning, and the pace picks up. There was no more people to talk to, and recharge "sanity" to reanimate different corpses. It was definitely good, but left me desiring more. it could have been more. I hope to see updates in the future. More story&options.

wonderful short story and I hope this combat style can be spread into larger games. only two complaints though. everything loads way to slowly. takes a good 3 minutes to move on attack after attack. the second piece is the fights again I know XD. they end too abruptly. big o said 2 whole things in the fight, so I was a bit disappointed in fights. other than that a fantastic time !!!

What a needed breath of fresh air in gaming and storytelling! After being gamer for quite a number of years now, from indies and AAA games, I've come to a point where not many games capture my attention enough to complete and finish the game—let alone delight in the experience. Without giving any spoilers, Raindead succeeds in bringing an interactive RPG the way a player would experience with a really, really good DM. More than anything else, this game allows the player to /discover/. 10/10!
