College Humour: The A.Typical RPG Is Out

By Alec Meer on April 20th, 2011 at 10:38 am.

Head-to-ball!

I’ve had review code for real life-based indie roleplayer the A.Typical RPG for a couple of weeks now, but unfortunately my own real life has got in the way of playing it. That’s something I shall rectify soon, but in the meantime allow me to at least alert you to its existence. This is a wry game of surviving exams, struggling to play sports, scrapping with bullies and trying to get the girl: destinies and challenges we can all get behind. Since I last wrote about it, there’s been a new, larger version of the demo to nose at, which you can find here.

If you’re so taken with it, you can then spend the frankly Olympian (i.e. absurdly cheap) sum of £1.99/$2.99 on the full version here, or £2.99/$4.99 for the expanded, bonus-packed Extra Cheese With Lightning Bolts Edition. I like cheese and I like lightning bolts, but do I like the A.Typical RPG? I’ll let you know next week. Meantime, take a look at this hand-drawn odyssey of normality below.

      The demo was uploaded almost a month ago, and today users started reporting that they were getting a 404 on the IndieDB page. I resubmitted the demo, and it takes a while for them to get it up again.
