What is it like?
Players begin with a series of choices like, ‘Which way to go’? The pond, the forest and the tall grass are your options. Depending on which way you go, you can run into an obstacle that immediately kills you.
Then, you’ll have to start over. The deaths are often gruesome but also funny. Additionally, there are multiple endings and pathways for you to enjoy. The child-like art adds to the humour.
You can download this experience for all major operating systems: macOS, Windows and Linux. This RPG is also available for all three platforms in English, French and Simplified Chinese. The total size of the download is small, so it shouldn’t take long for most users to download it.
If downloading the game isn’t an option, players can enjoy it on the web via HTML5. However, some users have experienced problems with doing so because parts of the screen are hidden.
Kill the Dragon is a quirky but open adventure quest. Gamers make choices along the way, which often result in their ultimate death. Even still, the game still has a sense of humour about itself.
It’s short, funny and easy to play. You’ll want to play it a few times to see the different choice paths and find the various endings.
