I really enjoyed this one, although it did crash on me. It could use a few QoL stuff for SRPGs (like a description of items before you buy em), but it was really fun. It took me a while to figure out the class triangle, but figuring out all the stuff I could do was great!

It crashed on me at the second level while I was fast-forwarding an enemy turn, but overall, recommend for an afternoon. I’d personally love to see a “DX”/GBC version that I could pay for.


What a cute little tactical game!

this game is broken

try to fix it fast jam will be over soon

uploads are currently disabled while voting is on, so unfortunately I can't fix right now. 

where did the game break for you? will definitely be doing an update post-jam

I realize this is a long time ago, and you're probably not working on the game anymore, but I was actually playing through some of the better games from last years jam (trying to get inspired) and I guess this is where it crashed for this guy.

I was like, midway through chapter 3 and the game crashed in the middle of the fight, on the enemy's turn. 

Like I said, I know it's late, but I saw this comment and figured I'd let you know. Otherwise, excellent game! Well done.
