Play MetaMyth, just your everyday Action RPG!

Well, not really. Of course not. This is a MetaGameJam entry, so you know it's not going to be your everyday kind of game.

Okay, so parts of it are. But it's got social commentary, self-awareness and all sorts of fun stuff. Hope you like it!

~Update has been posted to decrease difficulty!~

i know that this is probably kicking a dead horse, but lol i got the rogue alone during the start

Sorry for the late response. Haven't logged in on itch for quite a while. (The Bundle for Ukraine brought me here.)

So I'm guessing that's a bug? Should definitely have the whole party, the whole way through.

If you see this and remember any details, I wouldn't mind hearing about them. If not, never mind, and thanks for playing this little game jam project! Hope you got some enjoyment out of it, bugs and all.
