Okay another one out. Crypt Shyfter, fallen  empire.

I thought this one was more a strategy game, but it is quite short and ended up being more of a standard adventure, still it's five minutes of shyfter smacking fun so why not?

The Itch.io link is https://kungfuspacebarbarian.itch.io/crypt-shyfter-jrpg

Enjoy!

Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)

And there is another one Crypt Shyfter, blood island.
this one mixes rpg with the gamebook elements and is good rolocking clean fun, if you think slaying monsters is clean fun anyway big_smile.

I do wish though these two latest adventures were downloadable. Either way Here is the itch.io link

Thanks for announcing these, Dark. Apparently he hasn't posted them on newgrounds yet, but what's cool is that the itch.io versions work the same way.

Maybe when they turn up on newgrounds there will be a way of downloading them? I rather prefer to play them stand alone since then you don't have as much clutter on the page and its easier to use home and end keys, still nice to see that kfsb is still making these.

The newgrounds ones are a little nicer, because once you start the game there is nothing on the page except for the game.

Is this still continuing the ongoing story or does that story end with Legend, with the newer ones being more spin-offs? I tell ya what, I'm liking the series quite a bit.

I don't remember what game it is, unfortunately, but I liked how at one point you meet a being who explains about parallel worlds and different versions of your character, which is cool, but there's a payoff regarding the concept of that scene later on I think it might even be in the same book. I wasn't expecting that! But then, after that, there's limerick which seems to be a spin-off, but then the next one after that will, I have a feeling, continue this story.

The story you speak of generally sort of finishes ish in atomic angel, which also ties in to several earlier ones and indeed later adventures, though I was a wee bit disappointed some of the smaller later adventures like crimson wings and warphounds didn't tie into things more, likely why kfsb took a bit of a break.

Its actually interesting to say that this is a completely silly, random world of misplaced badassery just how much fun the actual stories have, and that there is a deal of world building going on in the background (its always cool to revisit locations, monsters etc we've seen before and giving them another good kicking).

Sadly no, its not a new adventure, but the good news is kfsb has redone his website (there is a truly hilarious description of why text games are cool).
Also, looking at the update dates on Itch.io it seems pretty much all of his games have been updated, and are no longer downloadable, but hay, they're still quite possible to play on newgrounds or Itch.io directly, plus he's now got a rather cool directory which gives the correct order of all the adventures too.

These are so getting a db page, indeed I might well drop a donation when finances permit.

Have you noticed that he's basically said we're allowed to join in by making our own contributions to the universe, in the form of our own Crypt Shyfter games?
What would this be called? It's not open source, but I'm certain someone did give me a term for this but I've forgotten it.
