Would-be adventurer Flora accepts a job to retrieve a stolen item for a shady bartender. In order to retrieve the item, she'll have to infiltrate a group of notorious bandits by posing as a new recruit. Fortunately, she has the help of two other adventurers. UNfortunately, her companions seem completely useless without her!

According to the strangely vocal narrator, this would have gone more smoothly if everyone had remembered to make their characters beforehand...

This game features:

  • A GxB story with 2 love interests
  • 13k words (around an hour total playtime)
  • 9 endings (6 "bad" ends, 3 normal endings)
  • Only 1 internet meme

This game was made during NaNoRenO 2019 by me, Missy! Backgrounds are from Lakael and Konett.

The game has no sound. I suggest putting on your favorite “Beats to Study to” mix while playing!

I literally enjoyed this more than most of the paid visual novels I've played lmao. You seriously have a real talent for this. The writing was consistantly funny and the main cast were all super lovable. Not to mention the art! Just a really well done game, I'm looking forward to your next one!:)

Oh wow, thank you! I’m glad you liked my nerdy children.

Gosh, this game was such a delight to play! Even the bad ends were incredibly fun to find and read, and I spent a good chunk of my time finding them all out. The other endings were amazing too, and they all left me grinning by the end of it. The atmosphere was a perfect balance of comedy and immersive story-telling, and as someone who has only watched campaigns on Youtube, you gave me the experience of playing a tabletop myself! Thank you so much for that. :> I can't wait to see Dan have his own route in your next game. I'm definitely looking forward to more <3 Rooting for you!

The bad ends were a lot fun for me write, so I’m happy they’ve been so well received! I’m glad you’re looking forward to the next game. Here’s to hoping I can get the first chapter/episode done by my self-imposed deadline of August!

Thanks for playing!

I loved this soo much. Everyone was charming and the dialogue felt natural! But I'm sad that best boy Danny boy isn't a love interest.

Thanks for playing! In the game I’m working on now (which is a retelling/continuation of this one), Dan will have his own route ;)

This game was so hilarious and heartfelt!! This really took me back to when I played D&D - while it took me a minute to get that it was a tabletop game, it really added to the atmosphere (especially considering the boys were brand new and yet totally gung ho, in  their own ways). 

Thank you so much for sharing this with us - it really was a treat of a game.

Ah, thank you for the kind comment! It makes me happy to hear that the game brings up nostalgic feelings for those who have played D&D/ other tabletops.

I played D&D a lot in high school and this was so funny and totally accurate. I made sure to get all the bad endings first, I loved it!

It's great to hear that as someone familiar with DnD, you still enjoyed the very casual/basic way it's presented in the story! Thanks for playing.

I absolutely adored this game! It was so cute and genuinely hilarious. The narrator's comments are absolute gold. I personally have never played a roleplaying/tabletop game but this makes me want to give it a try! 

I’m glad to hear that, thanks for playing!

This game was really cute! I don't really play roleplaying/D&D type games but it was still easy to understand all the jokes and references. The premise makes for some funny and interesting dialogue, the characters are all fun and play off each other really well, and the writing is sharp. I also love the character/background art.

I do wish there was some music but I just played some medieval video game music while playing so it's all good.

Thanks for playing! I specifically wrote the role play aspect of the story to be light on the DnD terminology/references so that people unfamiliar with tabletop gaming might still be able to enjoy it. I’m happy it seems to have worked! The group are basically playing Dan’s own homebrew game that is light on rules and heavy on RP. 

As for the lack of music, I simply ran out of time before the game jam deadline and couldn’t implement it. It’s something I’m looking forward to being able to do in my next game!

Honestly, it doesn't really matter if the game has music or not, this was still a very nice experience that had me smiling (and laughing) throghout the whole game. I was actually listening to my favorite J-pop playlist and still enjoyed this lol. Ah, you just got a new fan, I really want to see more of you after trying out Fetch Quest :)

Loved all the characters, their relationship with each other seems great (even bickering Connor and Todd), once I caught on that they were role playing the whole thing I just really felt that nice, warm feeling of spending a fun evening with your friends. Gosh, now I actually wish my friends would play this sort of thing haha. The art was great too!

So, yet again: congratulations on making a really enjoyable game! I wish you luck with any future projects :)

(+1)

The feeling you described of spending an evening with friends is exactly the vibe I was trying to convey.

I’m glad you liked the game and are looking forward to more of my work! I actually hope to make a few more short games based around this premise/group of characters.

(+1)

This was super cute and hilarious! I loved all of the characters and the premise of the "quest" lol. Overall i'm glad I played this

I’m happy to hear that, thanks for playing!

This was the cutest little adventure! I loved everything about it, and hope to see future projects from you guys some day! I especially loved Flora's freckles.

I’m glad you liked the game! I have plans to work on some more short games with these characters.

Just wanted to tell you I really enjoyed this game! It was so funny, I went through and got all the bad ends just because they were so weird and hilarious. I also really liked the bandit fliers and Todd's kazoo haha :]

The characters were great, I ended up liking all of them a lot. Dan's narration was definitely one of my favorite parts of the whole thing. I started out doing Connor's route first, he was really nice and I liked his design the best (though he's definitely a nerd haha). I wasn't as sure about Todd at first but after playing his route I liked him a lot! I'm actually not sure who I like better now, they're just really different people and are both great in their own way. I really liked Flora as a protagonist too, her design was really cute (I like her freckles) and I liked her character's backstory.

Great job with everything, you really got a lot done in one month!

Thank you for playing it! I’m happy to hear you liked Dan’s narration. He’s my favorite character, so I had a lot of fun writing him.

It’s also nice to hear you liked the bad ends! I know instant death bad ends are somewhat divisive. I tried to make them obvious to avoid, but they are some of my favorite parts of the game!

Hahahah this was awesome! 

I’m glad you like it!

No music doesn't take away my enjoyment! I'm not done playing yet, but this is GOLD! Love it. Love the setting, just.... beautiful. 

I was pretty conflicted about uploading without sound, so I’m glad to hear it’s not keeping you from enjoying it! 

(+2)

Considering what it's about, I just imagines tunes and sound effects in my head haha. Besides, those are easy to program in for the future if you want. But I love the character art and the comedic storyline, this is my cup of tea~
