Lullabyrinth, story-wise, is about the Curse of Magic. If you manage to use and learn Magic, you can do supernatural feats, but use it too much...and the brain will be restless for a long time, making you unable to sleep and lose your life for it.
However, some lucky people told the secret of lifting this curse: reaching the end of the Lullabyrinth and finding the teleport for sleeping on the Lullabed. Your objective as a cursed magician is to reach it. However, there is a difference between sleeping a bit and sleeping forever...
Lullabyrinth, gameplay-wise, is a minimalistic linear RPG focused on fights, like doing a boss rush.
Every enemy have a handcrafted AI and custom skills, so you have to find the right way to eliminate them.
You can use:
- Light: deal damage based on your ATK, costs 1 MP;
- Shield: you will take half damage from enemy hits and recover all MPs;
- MP Drain: absorb 2 MP from the enemy;
- HP Drain: deal less damage than Light, but absorb enemy's HP, costs 1 MP.
Choose your way to deal with 9 different powerful enemies with this skillset while being more stronger every battle finding upgrades which clear the mind of the character and dealing better the situation on a creepier and creepier Labyrinth.
The game contains horror elements. Every time you progress, you might find the game, locations and enemies more creepier than before...and more cursed;
The main character is Sophie, a powerful magician with a Champion Crown.
She is the main character for the entire game. She was training for the magician's tournament, but she trained too much and got cursed. After trying sleeping for two days without success, she decided to enter the Lullabyrinth. She likes to cook food, plants and reading.
The enemies are the Sleep Eaters.
This kind of ghosts eat the mind's energy of people. They prefer eating cursed people since they are unlikely to defend properly, also they create more energy. Unfortunately, that day they chose to eat Sophie, the wrong person...
When they heard about the Lullabed, they didn't manage to teleport and destroy it, but decided to live in the Lullabyrinth and guarding it, killing many persons.
Lullabyrinth is born for the RPG2S's Cursed Contest during Halloween made in one month, so expect some horror since you will explore a cursed labyrinth full of ghosts.
Play this game if you want a free, retro-like (audio and graphic-wise) boss rush RPG where you must have a strategy for defeating smart enemies, with a bit of exploration and simple events for a human character, not a mindless and emotionless avatar.
The game lasts 25 minutes if rushed and know what to do, 40 if played calmly the first time.
Don't play this game if you want a long, deep and detailed RPG with spectacular graphics, since the game is the opposite.
