Added DiffLines:

* [[DemocracyIsBad Democracy Is Stupid]]: Or at least Democratus is stupid. ''Painfully'' stupid. '''"Almost let itself be annihilated by a HordeOfAlienLocusts"''' stupid.
-->'''ObstructiveBureaucrat''': ''We have no evidence that the missiles are even destructive in nature!''\\
'''OnlySaneMan''': '' '''Evidence?''' The Verilent Hive has been doing this for hundreds of years: Bomb planet, wait for dust to settle, then re-colonize to expand hive! What exactly do you think is inside those warheads? '''Gift baskets?''' ''
** The only reason they survive their introduction is because the OnlySaneMan gets ''really'' good at yelling the other seven council members into agreeing with him.

Although intended to be a humorous game, it isn't really a parody of the genre. It features a wide variety of tropes commonly associated with Japanese [=RPGs=] of the period such as the 3D installments of the ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' series, as opposed to Western PC [=RPGs=] of the period such as the ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' series. The game did reasonably well with critics, but was not a big seller. Among those who did play it, it is notorious for its ending, which is a very obvious lead-up to the sequel that was never to be.

* BilingualBonus: One guy in the all-male strip club in the red light district refers to himself as "Blue", which seems odd, until you realise that in Russian, the word "Goluboj", literally meaning "Blue", is also the slang word meaning "Gay"
