The Grand List Of Console Role Playing Game Clichés
Saw this posted on a forum. Basically a tvtropes.org-style list of RPG cliches. Very funny if you're into that. Even funnier if you were really into RPGs in high school :D
This is the link to go to the place I am talking about. Just trying to be as straightforward as possible.
Notice how many of these Star Quest breaks. I present complicated, even impossible, moral situations to the player that will not lend themselves to a simple, monolithic perspective. Unfortunately, the first dungeon is too hard for a lot of players. I plan to write a spoiler-free walkthrough because I don't think it hurts the game that much. I'd rather people got to explore the world than solve a simple yet challenging dungeon on their own. Like a magic trick the solution is really quite simple. Chase the spiders away by running around the top room for a while. The VERY top room, keep going right; go up when you can't go right.
Picture extremely unrelated.
