Video Game: Crypt Worlds
"You have 50 days before Dendygar ruins everything- I'll be waiting for you... Now, wake up!"

Crypt Worlds is a low-resolution-textured exploration game set in a humorously dark and morbid world. The object of the game is to stop Dendygar from destroying the world by helping the Unicorn Goddess Moronia. Or you could let Dendygar destroy the world in 50 days. There's a third ending to the game too...

There are plenty of (completely stationary) characters to talk to, most of them have something very morose to say.

"Smell that blood! Smell that bone! Even thinking about it gets me excited!... Throw some more in there, wont'cha?"

"Our mystical food vats can create food from even the most vile materials."

"My life is a void waiting to be filled with burgs."

Those are real text pieces from the characters in the game. Depending on your sense of humor, this can be very funny.

Crypt Worlds can be downloaded for free here.

The game has examples of:

  • All There in the Manual: The game comes with a folder called Dictionarre Crypticus which contains pictures explaining more of the game's lore. Part of it is a diagram of the Crypt Plains which seems to be showing that the world is seperated into four quadrants. None of it is mentioned in the game.
  • Eldritch Abomination: The Chaos God. Also destroys everything if you awaken it, turning the world red and removing (almost) all the people and items.
  • Let's Play: There is a fair amount of these for Crypt Worlds, but most series don't reach the end of the game.
  • Stealth Prequel: In the game files there is another game called Horrible Screaming Murderer that leads into the main game.
  • Surreal Horror: Happens a lot in the game. Sometimes played for laughs.
  • Ominous Visual Glitch: Sometimes clicking on an NPC will cause it to glitch out, turning into random red and yellow pixels, and say incoherently formed sentences.
