A downloadable game for Windows

An RPG with a "devolving art style".

Have you ever wondered what happens in an RPG after the villain is defeated, the story ends, and the credits roll? It's not pretty.

A team of four fire-forged friends have risen to challenge Dark Lord Orion and end the Demon Wars that have plagued their world for centuries. It's time for a good old happy ending with no strings attached, right?

But one final thread of Fate is left to be unwoven.

Something strange shatters the momentary calm. The body of our hero, Swiftheart, is suddenly and strangely altered into something not at all ordinary. Suspecting a curse, the team assembles once more to find the source of the spell and stop it.

What they'll find instead is a horrible truth, and one last wild adventure.

The End uses the "Aggression"-based combat system seen in Illusions of Loyalty. Do you spend your Aggression now and gain an advantage? Or will you bank it for use on a more powerful skill later, and risk missing a window of opportunity?

The game also features many unique offensive and defensive pieces of gear that grants special bonuses to whomever they are equipped to, from free attacks to gaining energy when attacked.

Thematic origins:
The End was originally made for an event on RPGmaker.net, where we were tasked with creating a game built solely with assets other users created for the event.

Given the wealth of great-looking retro tilesets and sprites, I decided to make a game based on a "devolving art-style", and this was the result.
