Join Ignatius the mild-mannered cleric on the adventure of a lifetime—to return the Jewel of Happiness to the Sacred Altar and restore happiness to the world! (Hey, it's as good a quest as any, right?) Along the way, he'll recruit a ragtag team of allies to his cause, from a foul-mouthed knight, to an eternally horny imp, to a stubborn prince, and even a trigger-... erm, axe-happy berserker! Will he and his newfound companions be able to complete their quest? Why does all of this seem suspiciously convenient?! Is any of this even real?!?!
Created in one month for the 2022 Spooktober Visual Novel Jam!
Watch Ignatius and his crew go toe-to-toe with murder tomatoes, an overgrown octopus from hell, a giant... eye... creature, and more seven-foot-tall rabbits than you can shake a stick at! Outrageous visual effects and animations put you right in the middle of all the monster-whacking action!
Experience true love(?) with one of three dashing love interests that may or may not want to sweep our darling cleric off his feet! Your choices determine which knight (or assassin... or prince...) in shining armor will be there to save Ignatius in the nick of time so they can ride off together into the sunset and definitely have a blissfully happy ending!
Partake in thoughtful(?), philosophical(??), and intelligent(???) commentary courtesy of the OG crew! Lovable DnD-style pop-in effects provide more context to our heroes' noble quest and definitely don't leave you questioning your sanity or wondering what the hell is even going on!
Meet the colorful crew you'll be spending the next riveting hour with!

This game contains...
F-bombs and the like.
Fantasy Violence and Blood
Nothing too graphic. Swords, daggers, and axes. Cartoonish dismemberment of monsters. A character is beaten up with a weapon and has visible blood and bruises. A character's hand is broken (not shown, but there is a somewhat visceral sound effect). Characters are implied to have their throats slit (not shown). Afterwards, you can see some blood.
Adult Humor, Jokes, and Innuendo
Comments and jokes related to dicks, sexually-laden come-ons and flirting, spoken implications of past sexual relationships.
Some character(s) die(s) and it's unavoidable. (However, it's not graphic.)
Brief Instances of Vomiting
There are a few instances in the narration where a character is described as throwing up or characters mention vomiting. These are brief and not described in detail.
Screen Shake and Bright/Flashing Lights
BGs, sprites, and various screen elements shake on occasion. There are a few times a bright white screen flashes quickly. This is usually momentary and used for clashing and/or impact effects during some of the action scenes.
Use the drop-downs for more details on any of the above warnings! Details do contain some vague spoilers.
