Just One Line (JOL) is a Gamebook-like – Role-playing indie videogame set in a funny and colorful fantasy world. Create your hero choosing from a list of races and backgrounds and embark on a variety of quests with heavy focus on choices and consequences.

Your character will progress by increasing his/her renown and relations with the factions of the kingdom, unlocking new races and backgrounds for your next playthroughs. Maybe this time you will be a charming trickster searching for easy money or maybe the most dangerous villain of all times… choice is yours!


    A lot of games say so, but a few truly mean it. Most of the quests in Just One Line are linked together and have different story paths according to your race, background, attributes and, more importantly, choices made in previous quests.
    The video game itself is a framework upon which countless quests may be created and played. By exploiting user generated content and partnering with writers, Just One Line could potentially provide ever-growing contents!
    Create your adventurers as you see fit. Start by choosing a race and a background, follow up with some aesthetic customization and finally shape him/her into a valorous hero or a ruthless villain. Their morality and honor changes according to your in-game choices.
    When you resign your adventurer you can compete with other players in the online leaderboard to be the most renowned/good/evil/rich(/whatever!) adventurer of the Kingdom!
    Each quest has choices, or even entire story paths, only available after certain conditions are met and/or depending on previous quests’ choices! Every time you play with different adventurers, the story changes.
    We feature a unique set of locations with a fancy toon graphics and a mesmerizing OST to aid your imagination when embarking on epic quests. You will be amazed!
    We believe that wall of texts are not needed for engaging desktop players. Quest telling is rich and thrilling yet not too darn long.
    The concept of our game is a breath of fresh air! However, you can expect everything a role-playing gamer has come to know and love: races, classes, skills, magic, powerful weapons and armors… Oh! And dragons, zombies and pirates too!

Choice is yours!

Greetings Adventurers,

Today's announcement is very hot!
Get ready for a whole new game experience in Just One Line thanks to many changes in the game balance. We are calling it "The Prohibitionist Update" as it shifts focus from relying -almost entirely- on drinks for power-ups to switching and upgrading gear instead. The Armory inventory has been completely updated in stats and prices in order to improve the longevity of the game and to set targets (weapons, armors or trinkets) for the players to reach more gradually than before. The game should feel more "right", challenging and rewarding now.

This is our first attempt to achieve the best game balance possible but it will not be the last. As the quest library grows many other changes will be made along the way. If you have not been visiting the Inn for a long while, this is your great opportunity to play Just One Line once again! We will wait for your feedback and thoughts on our Community Hub and Discord. And if you happen to be a new player, your opinion matters as much!
Please Note: we advise to retire any active Adventurer and start a new game altogether to fully appreciate the changes of this update, even if you just started a new game before the update. Should you encounter any major blocking issue, try using a different user profile or reset the profile in use.

A new weapon is available as a sword variant in the Armory: the Night's Scar. The Night's Scar was designed by the player Zeed in our first "Draw a New Weapon for Just One Line" (Facebook) Contest.
Kudos to Zeed! And thank you to all who participated!

If you want to create new content for the game too, keep following us on our social media and Steam Community Hub for future contests!

We have made a new awesome Steam Trailer for Just One Line:

What do you think, Adventurer? Do you like it better than the previous one?

Last but not the least, we have just made available the demo version of Just One Line, for any one of you Adventurers who are still feeling unsure about our game. Come and try firsthand what Just One Line can offer!
The demo lets the player embark on three epic quests from the full game with four unlocked backgrounds and two unlocked races to choose from when creating your Adventurers. Demo players will not be able to retire their adventurers nor the send them to the leaderboard. The Armory will not have as many items as the full game. But, hey!, it is just a demo, isn' it?

Here is the complete changelog for the patch 0.12:

"Prohibitionist" Game Balance
- Quests

  • Duration (days) updated.
  • Location association changed.
  • Rewards updated.
  • Renown for completing the quests updated.
  • Questboard spawn requirements adjusted.

- Armory

  • Items' stats and prices drastically changed.
  • Shields grant damage reduction.
  • Sword and mace categories have been swapped.
  • Axe damage type has been changed to be more effective against heavily armored foes.

- Gameplay

  • Starting gold to 100.
  • Proficiencies swapped between Herald and Rogue.
  • Damages and HP do not get affected by stats increase due to the equipment (weapons, armors or trinkets) and drinks.
  • Damage reduction from weapons and armors does not affect any type of damage received outside of combat. Damage reduction from drinks and trinkets stack with the damage reduction granted by masteries for outside of combat damages.
  • Mastery update: Shield Brother's mastery is now 2 damage reduction from fight-type damages received outside of combat.
  • Mastery update: Hounds' +1 Damage now shows in the damage count.

Other changes:

  • Weapon: new pose of the adventurer when equipped with the arquebus.
  • Character creation: locked backgrounds are now dimmer/more transparent when selected.
  • Main menu: news carousel revamped with banner images, arrows and social icons.
  • Main menu: snow effect removed from the overworld.
  • Quest typos corrected.
  • Other fixes: fix to the title drawing system, minor fix to the tutorial system, armory (disable incompatible trinkets and potions when returning from a quest).

The King's humble servants,
- JOL Studios.
