A Long Road Home is an old-school point and click adventure game created in a 2D top down perspective. Despite being created in the RPG Maker engine, our aim was to make the gameplay as similar to the adventure games of old as possible, thus ALRH uses a mouse driven interface. We also implemented interesting puzzles to challenge the players, and of course no adventure game can be complete without item management. The player will find many items in the game world, which can be examined, combined with each other and used at different places to overcome obstacles.
While it would be hard to deny that A Long Road Home was created in the RPG Maker engine, we worked hard to make the gameplay different from regular JRPG style many RPG Maker games are known for. If you are appalled by this graphical style, you probably will not like our game, but those who can look past the graphics might find a gameplay they enjoy a lot.
You definitely can. A Long Road Home was released on the 23rd of December 2016 on several indie platforms. You can purchase the game on itch-io[01bitstudio.itch.io]
, as well as on IndieGameStand[indiegamestand.com]
we are working hard to bring it to other sites. Our final goal is winning over the crowd of Steam users of course, this is why we are asking for your help to get the game Greenlit.
If you have any doubt, please take a closer look at ALRH, the demo is ready for download on these links:

Although spoiling the story of an adventure game is a deadly sin in our opinion, we can give you a glimpse into the world of ALRH. The game starts with the protagonist getting separated from his family, waking up in an unknown village after a serious wound. From there, the player will embark on a journey to find his loved ones, and to discover the plans of an evil tyrant, who travels from world to world, enslaving everybody she encounters. Will you save the world from this enemy, or let her tighten her grip on the world, just to save your loved ones?
