OneFinalScream is an VideoGame/RPGMaker 2000 game created around Fall 2005. The game's development began with the simple question, [[{{Deconstruction}} "Why does the average hero CARE?"]] it soon spiraled out of control into having a somewhat convoluted, yet enjoyable, plot. Nonetheless, it is at the very least, a good game, though the beginning parts are plagued by some typos and bad design. For the curious and bored, (it has surprising length for an RPGMaker game), the link is [[http://kamboard.kamain.com/ofs.zip here]].
