'''Leo & Leah: A Love Story''' is a freeware RPG made by Strangeluv in RPG Maker 2003. It tells the tale of the titular couple, two lion cubs. One day, however, while venturing out into the wilderness, Leah is captured by a psychopathic hunteress who intends to sell her to the highest bidder -- or worse. Leo takes it upon himself to rescue his LoveInterest, though the journey takes longer than expected and soon grows in proportion beyond his wildest dreams.

The story starts off very lighthearted, hardly taking anything serious at all, with humour reminiscent of ''Videogame/EarthBound'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG''. Eventually, however, a deeper narrative emerges that [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs]] the genre -- Leo must confront his doubts and ask himself how far he is really willing to go for Leah's sake.

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedShmupLevel: Chapter 5 has Leo riding a bird to chase after Brandy and Whiskey (who are hanging from a bunch of balloons) and dodging gunfire.
