->'''Dink''': I'm NOT a pig farmer! \\ '''[[{{Rival}} Milder]]''': Are you farming pigs right now? \\ '''Dink''': Er... \\ ''DinkSmallwood'' tells the [[TheRPGClichesGame standard 32-bit RPG tale]] of [[FarmBoy a farm boy]] who dreams of becoming a mighty warrior. After Dink receives a visit from a local wizard and Dink's mother and house burn in a fire, Dink begins his [[TheHerosJourney epic]] and [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] journey to save the kingdom from cults, rogue knights, goblins, famine, and [[spoiler:an ancient who destroyed all other ancients. Also, lets not forget the [[DieChairDie evil furniture.]]]] ''Dink Smallwood'' was made by Seth Robinson of Robinson Technologies in 1997, and was originally sold in stores, with a shareware version online. In 1999, Seth released the game as freeware, and can be downloaded [[http://www.rtsoft.com/dink/download.htm here]]. Even later, Dink became open sourced in hopes of making it available on more systems. ''Dink Smallwood'' is also notable for having a game development system right alongside the game, for creating new adventures for Dink called "D-Mods". One D-Mod, Mystery Island, which was also created by Seth, is included with the original game. Other D-Mods, along with the bulk of the Dink community, can be found at [[http://www.dinknetwork.com/ The Dink Network]]. ----- Examples of tropes from Dink Smallwood: * AllMythsAreTrue: "Joppa Isle doesn't exist, it's just a story for kids." * AlwaysChaoticEvil: Goblins. * [[spoiler:AuthorAvatar: As a FinalBoss, noneless!]] * BottomlessMagazines: The arrow version. * BrokenBridge: Literally. * ChivalrousPervert: The degree of chivalry is partly for the player to decide, but Dink is always a pervert. * DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu * [[strike:DoomedHometown]] [[DoomedHometown Doomed Home]] * EasingIntoTheAdventure: "Dink, would you go feed the pigs?" * FailOSuckyname: Dink Smallwood. * GameMod - Fan-made adventures ("D-MODS") are still produced to this day. * GirlNextDoor: Libby. * {{Hellfire}}: The spell that bears its name. * JerkJock - Milder Flatstomp. [[spoiler: While Dink is questing, Milder wins a jousting tournament and becomes a knight.]] * LawOfCartographicalElegance: Inverted. The countryside is a blobby landmass surrounded by [[HereThereBeDragons question-marked land]]. * LudicrousGibs: Blood splatter happens a lot in this game. Decapitating or exploding livestock deserves special mention. * TheLostWoods: Murkwood Forest, [[spoiler:home of the Dead Dragon Carcass cult.]] * MonsterTown: The Goblin Sanctuary. * {{Mordor}}: The Darklands. * NewsTravelsFast * ParentalAbandonment: Dink's father is notably absent. * PlayingWithFire: The first spell Dink learns is a fireball spell, and some trees are flammable [[spoiler:and hide underground treasure troves]]. * PortTown: Averted. A city called [=PortTown=] is mentioned several times, but it is never seen in game. * RushJob: the second half of the game is markedly less polished than the first parts. * ScienceIsBad: In ''Mystery Island''. * SwissCheeseSecurity: Lampshaded in a house in [=KernSin=]. --->'''Man''': What the hell are you doing? --->'''Dink''': What do you mean? --->'''Man''': I mean you just barging in here, no knocking, nothing!

* AdaptationDisplacement - Google "Dink Smallwood" and you're more likely to find something about the {{Mugen}} character by Most_Mysterious.

* SoBadItsGood - arguable. The game is not that bad, if it wasn't for a fact that you had to pay for it. As a shareware it's a fun, entertaining little game.
