Saturday Morning RPG (SMRPG) follows the story of Martin “Marty” Hall, an average high school student who has been gifted a powerful ability to channel magic through everyday objects. With his newfound powers Marty has inadvertently attracted the ire of the world’s most heinous villain – the evil Commander Hood. This leads Marty into a series of dangerous plans that he must unravel to save the world (several times!).
SMRPG is a Japanese style RPG that allows players to build Marty’s power up throughout multiple stand alone episodes. Players can carry over stats, inventory, and even story decisions between these episodes (sometimes your actions in one episode will ripple into previous or future episodes!). Saturday Morning RPG is a truly unique and engrossing role-playing game experience that can not be missed!
Jason: I’ve seen some great reviews of the game, how has it been received overall by gamers?
Josh: For the most part, people really love the game and what we’ve done with all the pop culture references. I’ve gotten emails from people around the world thanking me for making the game – it’s incredibly rewarding to get a response like that!
Jason: As the lead designer/programmer, what is your favorite of part of the game or what are you most proud of so far?
Josh: I’m most proud of how we’ve managed to get so many references and parodies to coexist seamlessly in the game world. Throughout episode one and two, we probably reference close to 100 different things. Those references never seem to stick out - their existence usually makes sense in the world or within the context of the game’s story. That kind of happened organically during development, and I’m really proud of how the game world ended up.
Jason: Do you have plans to publish the game on other platforms?
Josh: Totally – we’ve got an Android version of the game that is running nicely and we’ve got a PC port on the horizon for a winter launch.
Jason: You made known this month that episode #3 is in the works. Do you have a target date for the launch?
Josh: At first we thought we’d be able to have it out by June, then we said we could totally hit July, now it’s August and we’re still not done with it. I’ll go ahead and say our target launch date for Episode 3 is the second week of September, but I usually jinx myself when I announce release dates. I’m going to try my hardest to meet this one, though!
Oh yeah, did I mention you can download episode one for free??? WHAT??? That's right! Now, if you are still reading this and haven't rushed off to download the game, I need to tell you that as awesome as episode one is, there is substantially more in episode 2. Plus with episode 3 almost here, you might want to choose the deluxe version of SMRPG. For $5.99, you get the first two episodes and all additional episodes released are free! I now release you to download the game from iTunes and enjoy ONE ONE CONDITION....come back and leave a comment with your review of the game!
