There once was a book called “The Story of the Demon King.”

A Simple and Fun RPG

DRM-Free only

This title is only sold as DRM-Free.

There once was a book called “The Story of the Demon King.”

The book had no ending.

This is an indie RPG with very few cutscenes, but with a fair amount of freedom and a healthy portion of difficulty.

Level up steadily. Focus on attack power and rush at the enemy, ready to die honorably.

Play the game the way you want to, and bring this story to an end.

  • There are hardly any cutscenes.
    There is no determined path, and you have a fair amount of freedom.

  • You can customize your character as you see fit.
    You can ignore your defense and focus on offense, or you can raise your spirit and go crazy with your skills.

  • If you’re not careful, you’ll get slaughtered.
    Choose your equipment wisely to get through tough spots, or just level up like crazy to power your way through.

  • No one will tell you what to do next.
    The game is kinda unfriendly in that sense. 

We hope you enjoy this sorta retro, sorta modern RPG. 

I wanted to create an indie game where you would get to know the world and the background story without the gameplay being interrupted by annoying cutscenes.

Started developing the game from 2003. We don't stick with one genre but making various ones from puzzles to RPGs. More than 10 games were already released during these ~10 years. "Yusha Satsujin-jiken(JP only)", "Depressed Yusha(JP only)", "Irisu Syndrome!", "Demon King Chronicle", "Murasaki". We are aiming to create the games which are "simple and fun", and "system and scenerio united into one".
