I’m Ethan and this is Lusipurr’s Fountain of Perpetual Disappointment. It’s a labour of love that started as a joke and grew into a legitimate project.
In fact, that’s a good way to sum up the game as a whole. LFoPD is both an opportunity to poke fun at RPGs, but also a love letter to the genre. Things that start off as jokes in the surreal game world end up taking legitimate roots.
On a more practical level, LFoPD is a 2D RPG in the style of the Super Nintendo Final Fantasy games, except with hand-drawn art.
The titular villain, Lusipurr, has transformed the real world into an RPG in hopes of ruling a world run by order and simplicity. The downside? The population is slowly being transformed into mindless NPCs. Lazy, good-for-nothing Oliver fits the cliché of the reluctant hero so perfectly that he is thrust into a quest to confront Lusipurr and his unusual scheme.
I’ll be revealing character and gameplay details on this blog along with occasional screenshots. Check back to see progress!
Lusipurr’s Fountain of Perpetual Disappointment is being developed for the PC and while no exact pricing has been announced, gamers can expect to pay under $5 for the title upon its release.
