The world used to be beatufiul and full of adventure, but then Emperor Itzka came along and started what is known as the Dark Age - a time of oppression, murder and despotism. Now, one socially awkward teenage boy with glorious hair and awkward social skills is the only one who can save the world and liberate its people!
After a small delay due to technical difficulties, the long-awaited humorous JRPG is finally out!

Let's just say... the world isn't at its best right now. After Itzka (the protagonist of "Tales of Itzkeria") became Emperor at the end of the first game, things quickly started going downhill. But hey, Itzka was a good guy, he'll find a way to fix all the social disturbances peacefully ooor maybe he'll do what he always does and draw out his sword without even a hint of conscious thought in his mind. Half a dozen burned cities and hundreds of dead peasants later, the world is finally accepting Itzka as its rightful ruler as he takes over more and more territories. All but one of his old companions leave him and go their separate ways, meaning that there's no one to oppose him. Will Itzka finally destroy the world he once saved, like in that "Black Sabbath" song named after a superhero? Well, unless you download the game for free when it comes out... yeah, pretty much.
But if you choose to dive in, you'll assume the role of Doba - a young boy with fabulous hair who's been trained in secret to be an assassin since birth by the Emperor's right hand, Lord Datzo. His skills with the sword are, in theory, pretty damn good, but his sheltered life and lack of social interaction has left his social skills kinda lacking, to say the least. After his very first assassination attempt fails, Doba escapes certain death at the hands of the Empire and finds himself facing an impossible task - he has to negotiate with important figures and convince them to join in the reformation of the shattered Rebellion. But, of course, he won't be alone - he'll be joined by the cowardly Flash - a thief who can't steal anything, and Kalina - a black mage who's not very good with magic, but is obsessed with killing Itzka, for some reason. Will he succeed in his quest? Why is Emperor Itzka evil all of a sudden? What is Lord Datzo's motivation? What is the horrible secret that keeps the world in balance? And why the hell does Flash's in-game sprite lack a beret?!? All this and more in "The Doba Unleashed", which you can download for free right now from the downloads section. What awaits you are 10 hours of gameplay, over 20 unique locations to explore, 6 playable characters and over 100 classic pieces of videogame music!
