    The last progress video is just going to be his wife with a bloody knife in her hand admitting she killed him for spending all their savings on this.

    It depends on how swiftly the debtors are able to compile the assets.

    Sounds bored playing through his own game, even skipping the battles. On another note why are RPGs so obsessed with dungeons? Feel like more time shpsho be put into the role play bits and the overworld

    Why are there so many of my country here?
    I wish the developers would ask themselves "Where is the gameplay".

    "Dungeons" where you click stuff and a bunch of dice rolls for traps does not constitute gameplay.
    They didn't need to make "3D Dungeons" to figure that out. They were a clear mistake from the moment they were introduced.
    Tabletop Mechanics do not work in a computer game, you do not have the other players, you do not have the GM to cut through the bullshit and keep things sane.

    Mount and Blade Warband to my knowledge has no dungeons yet still one of the most enjoyable RPGs around. Why are RPGs so obsessed with dungeons. Even Stardew Valley the "Farming" RPG felt the need to include a dungeon that is totally disconnected from the Rest of the game

    No dungeons in Disco Elysium or KCD Don't think they suffered as a result
    Edit: these are just random games that cropped up in my mind
