tERRORbane is a very funny fourth wall breaking meta-adventure where you annoy a developer by breaking his ambitious, but buggy JRPG!
Previously featured on Alpha Beta Gamer way back in 2017, tERRORbane is a hilarious meta-adventure where you attempt to play a buggy JRPG while also being constantly interrupted by an anxious game dev who gets mad when you break things. The dev has put a lot of work into building his game and he now thinks it’s pretty much perfect, but it soon becomes apparent that it’s filled with bugs and if you don’t play it the way the dev intended he’ll get more than a little angry!
The current build of tERRORbane takes around 30 minutes to play through, but it’s worth playing multiple times as there’s a LOT of secrets and alternate routes to unlock. Everywhere you look there’s a new bug or exploit that you can have some fun with, even the introduction cinematic! Even if you’re trying not to break things you’ll run into some fun bugs, but if you really want to try and break the developer’s game you’ll run into lots of wild stuff – all of which provokes some very funny reactions from the dev.
It’s shaping up to be a fantastic game and even the demo will take you hours to discover its many secrets. The charming 16-bit visual style works really well, the writing is incredibly witty and the gags have a very high hit rate. It’s glitchy JRPG world rewards experimentation and it’s a hell of a lot of fun annoying the developer. Highly recommended.
