''Linear RPG'' is an AdobeFlash game by Sophie Houlden that reduces linear "role-playing" games to their simplest components.

It can be played [[http://www.sophiehoulden.com/games/thelinearrpg/ here]].

* BigBad -- [[spoiler: the Alphabetti Spaghetti]]
* TheChosenOne -- Kliche
* ContemplateOurNavels -- One example: "Kliche considers the fact that destiny and fate are really the same thing, but perhaps the old man was referring to a deeper truth in the causality of the universe and the phenomena that make up his life..."
* CoolHorse -- The [[WingedUnicorn pegacorn]], so cool that Chuck Norris has like eight of them.
