Mardek Chapter 3, a Flash-based RPG, is now out. Its predecessors have also received an update.
I haven’t played these games before. Yes, me, the all-knowing guru of all things indie RPG and stuff (HAH!), missed this one. But after hearing about the release of Chapter 3, I went back and played through some of the first chapter. It won me over after I was done “beatening” the dragon.
It’s cute, funny, and is both homage and parody of classic jRPGs of the 16-bit console era. But while it pokes fun at conventions and may have NPCs named things like, “Sidequest Priest,” (I especially enjoyed the description of the healing potion), it’s not dependent upon these little jokes and asides to be fun – a very important thing! Each chapter can take over ten hours (or so I have read), so these aren’t quite the “quick fix” Flash games.
And they are free Flash-based games, so … you know, FREE. Be sure and play and visit sponsors and stuff to help support the developer, Pseudolonewolf.
