"Lisa is a quirky side-scrolling RPG set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Beneath the charming and funny exterior is a world full of disgust and moral destruction. Players will learn what kind of person they are by being FORCED to make choices. These choices permanently effect the game play. If you want to save a party member from death, you will have to sacrifice the strength of your character. Whether it's taking a beating for them, or chopping off limbs, or some other inhuman way. You will learn that in this world being selfish and heartless is the only way to survive... "
From the steam description.

- Visible character sacrifices that effect your stats (removing arms, eyes, scratches)
- Recruiting 30+ new party members in towns and camps.
- Ruthless choices that permanently effect towns, characters, life...
- White knuckle shopping cart races.
- Expending party members in Russian Roulette for huge profit, but perma-death if they lose.
- Countless hidden secrets in the world for you to explore.
- A life ruining gaming experience.
List of features from the steam description.

"Lisa is a side-scrolling PC ONLY RPG set in a post apocalyptic wasteland where women are nowhere to be found. It's a world full of drugs, violence and the decay of human intelligence..."
Summary of LISA from the kickstarter page.

"I want the world of Lisa to be hard on the player. I hate playing a game knowing that if I make a choice, it has to be the one I know the game wants me to do, or the "safe" option, or the one that leads to the good ending. The choices you make will change the core mechanics of the game, it's not just superficial. I want the player to really have to make sacrifices and for the game to affect the interior core of your experience."
Austin Jorgensen on sacrifice in videogames from the kickstarter page.

"LISA is about PAIN. It’s about losing everything you’ve ever loved and failing at everything you’ve ever done and becoming everything you’ve ever hated."
thevoiceofdogSA's description of LISA from "Let's Play LISA #0 — An Introduction to Earthbound-Likes

"LISA's approach to comedy is a double-edged sword that can only make the inevitable tonal plummets, of which there are many, all the more excruciating."
Al Russell on LISA's comedy in "LISA - The Painful RPG: Joyful Contrition"

"LISA isn't for everybody, I go far enough to say it isn't even for most, but it's an ingenuous little game that fills a sorely needed niche in the independent market."
Al Russell on LISA's in "LISA - The Painful RPG: Joyful Contrition"

Buzzo: "Well... It's a failure. The Joy has no use to our investors... They say it can't be used as a weapon. Once it's gone into effect... The user begins to lose control... They no longer can make choices for themselves, only the user's inner most desires come out. The only plus... Is that it doesn't take a lot of Joy in order to start the transformation. But still... They say it has no military benefits. I guess that means—-"

Yado: "Exactly... We both have our reasons for staying... Besides. I have a plan."
Buzzo: "And what's that?"
Yado: "... Nancy. I'll use her."

Buzzo: "No need to show off to yourself. Remember our deal. He's mine from now on... I don't want your little friends getting in the way."
Yado: "Well, I can't make any promises. My methods don't work on all of them... That Rando fellow... Is he okay? Is he still able to protect her?"
Buzzo: "If you're so worried about it, why don't you go protect her yourself? Or are you just too scared? Huh, you weak old man?"
Yado: "... Just go take care of your little pet..."
Buzzo: "Fine."
Yado: "And listen up... From this point on, we are finished. You don't cross me, and I won't cross you..."
