Have you ever played an RPG? Then you know that the main character is a very big deal. He or she is destined to save the world, assisted by a group of equally heroic, strong companions. You travel vast landscapes, defeating monsters and enemies with evil intent, earning money, becoming stronger, buying or finding legendary equipment to help you on your super epic quest. Aren't you tired of that? In You Are Not The Hero, you play as Petula, a simple minded girl who lives in her little shack in Hearth Village. She's content with living her life the same dull way she has for a while now. Unfortunately for her, the heroes and villains of this world have different plans! YANTH is a parody on RPGs and games in general. You'll find tons of video game references, cliche satirical events and fourth wall breaking throughout your journey as Petula. You'll tackle obstacles, puzzles, chase sequences, and more unique events as you run after the Heroes who have stolen your precious pendant.

Here's a work-in-progress video of YANTH, alpha 2.0 so far. It's to show off gameplay. The first half is a look at the mellow side of the game, while the second half is all action. I have yet to add the title at the beginning so skip the first 4 seconds, plus the music fading out at the end isn't final. Critique is very welcome~
