A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

Sanity Check is a game about the creative process, game design, and what it means to be an artist in the modern age. But...more specifically, it's a game about power-mad demon ladies, showboating skeletons and elder gods who just can't stick to the script. A hapless creator's first RPG Maker game spirals out of control as the stock assets take over and begin running the show.

It's time for a Sanity Check!

-Beat the combat scripting out of enemies to learn their moves!

-Experiment with unique equipment that radically alters your playstyle!

-Encounter hilarious monsters, each fight with its own unique dialogue!

-And even some secrets to find!

It may just be the first, but there's 2+ hours of content in this chapter alone! It's a big game that's only going to get bigger, so dive right in! Enjoy!
