Lisa is a men-only apocalyptic horror comedy 2D RPG

[Note: Footage is pre-alpha. Also, looks like I might be in the game now, so that's fun.]

Not long ago, we heard that The Last of Us was planned to take place in an apocalypse where nearly every woman on the planet had become an infected, murderous monster. The developers of the game rejected the idea because it was "misogynistic," but many in the comments were interested in the concept. What would happen to society if it was left with no women? What would an all male world with no future look like? What truths would come out?

Lisa looks to answer those questions. Created by martial artist Austin Jorgensen (who cites Streets of Rage and King of Fighters as inspirations), the game takes the same risk heavy, unflinching attitude towards design that one might take towards meeting an opponent in the squared circle. Jorgensen says- "I want the world of Lisa to be hard on the player... full of supernatural beings, weirdos, monsters, and just plain dumb people... a world full of drugs, violence and the decay of human intelligence". Selling information on potential allies to murderers, selling yourself for sex, even selling your limbs, no sacrifice is off limits in this world of desperate, big nipple'd men. 

With graphics that look heavily inspired by Mother 3, the cute-to-disturbing ratio here looks high on both ends. The game has about $5,000 to go on Kickstarter, with 20 days left in the campaign. Seeing that Dropsy  met its funding, maybe we can take Lisa on as the next disturbing and adorable underdog game to push into creation.

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more
