Ham Sandwich RPG on RockPaperShotgun!

Well, this is exciting: RockPaperShotgun has just run a piece on the RPGDX 48-Hour Competition, and they give prominent mention to Ham Sandwich RPG!

I always like this kind of community experimental games compos. RPGDX have finished their 48 Hour RPG competition, where developers attempt to do everything on a small game in 48 hours. They’re voting on the results now. The theme this year is “side-scrolling”. I haven’t had a chance to play them all, but the pair which are leading the voting – Ham Sandwich RPG and Feyna’s School Project certainly are impressively completely envisioned. Also, one stars a Sandwich, which is making me peckish. Others look fun – the more unfinished Jade Figurine – pictured – is actually impressive in looks, and its Golden Axe/Barbarian approach one I think pursuing. Well done everyone. Find some videos of the games beneath the cut, or follow the links to see more.

Check it out.
