1[[quoteright:350:]] ²''Crayon Chronicles'' is a {{Roguelike}} {{RPG}} by Outer Grid Games [=LLC=]. It was [[ funded]] on Website/{{Kickstarter}} on March 9th, 2013, and was then released for [[UsefulNotes/IBMPersonalComputer PC]] through UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} on May 18th, 2013.²²Your friends have been kidnapped by the villainous Lord of the Swampyards, Stratolustrious Von Danderbreak the 37th (just Strato for short). Now you've gotta go rescue them. It shouldn't take too long, maybe a two-to-four hours. Doesn't sound too exciting, huh?²²Well, what if we told you each adventure was different? Different lands to explore, different enemies to face, different people to meet, and all of it got recorded in the Heroic Hallitorium so you can see how your adventures stack up against each other, and against the adventures your friends have?²²[=THAT=] is the real hook of this game. It's a Roguelike full of a ton of different things to see and do, and places to go.²²!!Crayon Chronicles contains examples of:²* AlliterativeTitle: '''C'''rayon '''C'''hronicles.²* BeeAfraid: The Spelling Bee enemies.²* BigBad: Stratolustrious Von Danderbreak the 37th (or just Strato for short) who kidnapped your friends.²* CaneFu: One of the weapons you can wield is a cane.²* DemBones: Graveyard features Half-Buried Bone Archers, which essentially act as immobile turrets.²* EliteMooks: Every enemy type has a Dire version with improved stats. They are represented by scaled-up sprites that also have a thick red outline around them.²* FogOfWar: Many levels have parts of them concealed by fog.
