In-Game Background Story / Lore

“Video Game Fables” is a fun, lighthearted RPG adventure set in a once-traditional RPG world that hasn’t had a player in decades.

The world’s script gets completely ruined by someone calling herself “The Forsaken Princess.” It’s up to Aru (the world’s princess), Nate (an NPC aspiring to be a hero), and Tator (the villain’s son) to get things back to normal…or maybe change everything forever.


Explore an abandoned RPG world that hasn’t had a player in decades. Fight in strategic, fast-paced, turn based battles with unique twists on RPG mechanics.
