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 game is based on the lives of a bunch of friends as they trudge through a college semester, with everyone in the town – ranging from bullies to real estate agents out to get them. Will they be able to survive?

It’s been a tough few weeks for Pyrodactyl. Dealing with media attention, such as from the delightful Rock Paper Shotgun , DIYGamer , Bits ‘n Bytes , DualShockers and – we have understood that maybe a few people are interested about The A.Typical RPG. Pre-Orders have also started, and some people have thrown money in our direction already. That’s awesome!
For our efforts, we decided to reward ourselves by buying diamond swords and dueling to death working hard and pushing ourselves to the edge of starvation. The game has improved vastly since the last demo was released, and as promised, here is the improved demo for PC and Linux!

If you like the demo, you can pre-order the game for a paltry sum of $2.99 (or $4.99 for the Extra Cheese With Lightning Bolts Edition™) from Desura.


We also regret to announce that the release date for the game has been pushed back by about 9 days to 31 March. It’s mainly to allow our slave bunnies testers more time, not to mention allow us to put in some extra polish to the dialog and engine. Hope you won’t get angry too much. P.S. If you have any problems with the Linux version of the game OR you are a Linux dev wanting to help me out with the Linux version,
please contact me via email.

Here are some screenshots to piqué your interest. They are pretty, aren’t they?

I am having a hard time making the demo work on ArchLinux.
I've chmod'ed it (+x) but can't run it at all. Tried running it in terminal with ./ATypicalRPGDemo and sh ATypicalRPGDemo, no success.

Any ideas?

The game needs SDL runtime libraries to run. Other than that, I suggest you PM me the error message and I will look into it.

Thanks for your patience.
