The A.Typical RPG features everyday situations, tactical RPG gameplay, cartoony hand drawn art, branching storyline and a sense of humor in a strange town called whatever-this-place-is-ville.

The scripting system is now complete, which allows me to quickly add new events to complete the decision tree of in-game choices. I cannot reveal much more about the decisions you make, but here’s what one of the characters in the game has to say about the progress done in programming (or it may be another in-game event – it’s a secret!) –
Whoa, is that a new design of dialog boxes? Hmm, it looks as if the next update will be sooner than you think. Here’s a final message from the armed forces :
