About

Just One Line is a fantasy RPG gamebook-like indie game heavily focused on choices and their consequences, in which you may compete with other players in an interactive online leaderboard. Create different adventurers by choosing their races and backgrounds and embark on a variety of epic quests: each adventurer will progress by increasing his/her renown and relations with the factions of the Kingdom thus unlocking new races and backgrounds for your next playthroughs. Even though the core game experience is a text-adventure 2.0, anyone, of any age, who likes fantasy RPGs or books should give it a try. In fact, Just One Line has many great features appealing to a broader audience: CHOICES MATTER 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 . ENDLESS GAME EXPERIENCE 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! YOUR ADVENTURER, YOUR STORY 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. WILL YOU BE THE BEST? 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! HIGH REPLAY VALUE 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. ALL ABOUT IMMERSION 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! SHORT STORIES, DEEP STORIES We believe that wall of texts are not needed for engaging desktop players. Quest telling is rich and thrilling yet not too darn long. INNOVATIVE YET CONSERVATIVE 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! Early Access Features 3 Races out of 4. 6 Backgrounds out of 10. 10 Quests and counting. Online leaderboard. 23 Armors. 29 Weapons. 29 Potions and Trinkets. Two languages: English and Italian. More to be added later The main focus of this Early Access is to increase the game longevity (please also read the Early Access section above): the quest pack will be expanded as the game development goes by. User created quests will be added via Steam Workshop to a separate set of quests. About the plot: Even though the game will feature a main story, it will only emerge as more quests are added to the game. The main story is already referenced by other quests in the game at the moment. Eventually, one or more playable quests about the main story will be added to the game; until then, the players must think of the quests as tasks -or help requests- from the people of the Kingdom, each somehow linked to many others (by cause-effect relationship) sharing the same game lore and background but not the same main story, as a traditional gamebook would. The adventurer is not (yet) a "chosen one", but rather a lad/lassie seeking his or her fortune!Performance NotesJust One Line is in development and undergoing optimizations. As the development continues and the community gives us feedback, performance will get better. The game suffers a slow one-time initial loading on mechanical hard drives.Please NoteWe are not planning to and will do our best to avoid game saves to become incompatible over time or to wipe the online leaderboard. Should it be the case, we will give the users prior notice and try to work out the best solution possible to avoid any unexpected data loss. Quests already shipped may be updated in the future and the prerequisites/choices/consequences in newly added quests may depend on those updates. This could result in some "plot inconsistencies" or minor issues if playing with adventurers created before given updates.

Just One Line reviews and comments

Early Access Review A mainly text-based RPG with an extremely High level of Agency and Replay value. The Outcome of each Quest Depends not only on what the Player decides to do, but also depends on the skills of the Character, so it is for a dull but silver-tongued thief perhaps smarter To persuade the Witch to give you the Recipe instead of Threatening her Beating. Horny:-BackToTheRoots Text RPG with many Innovations-Permadeath interesting but also heavy Quests with many Solution routes-Therefore great Replay value-Good for it Gambling in between Not Horny:-The Fights do not give much, the Outcome is almost exclusively of Depending on the Skill Of the Charter. -There is no world exploration quitting outside of Quests is basically the only gameplay element-£10 is a little much for the current Content.

Unfortunately, the Game Description forgoes that it is a Game with Perma Death, which requires you to start anew as soon as the Character dies. But why I say that it is not a good Game, even with simple Missions, the Battles with a new Character have an extremely high probability that he dies with the 1st Fight (happens at 3 of my 3 Characters in the first 5 Minutes in the 1st Mission) And this despite the fact that the Main Screen rather gives the impression that the Character is probably a Mercenary. It may well be that you really do times survive the first Missions is a good Game behind it but An Optic That earns rather and flash games from before 2000 and the rather (below) average Stories in the Missions there is not really anything that one Holding at the Pole. (This Review is for release Version 1.01)

Product received for free Early Access Review Pretty funny Play! But first Of all Thank you very Much & Mille Grazie At JOL studios that sent me quite unexpectedly-Promo key for my small, fine YT channel. Just grabbed JoL on the Wishlist last Week to stay up to Date on what else is happening ... And now the:P It should be said that a German Translation is being worked on, because one should already be proficient in the English Language, because the driving Mechanics are just text-based Adventures ... One should be clear about that. But if that's not a Problem, then you have a Lot of Fun:D You will make serious Decisions, sneak monsters, or complete them until they voluntarily get out of the Way ... Different Breeds, Classes, Loot, etc. If you would Like to look at the Whole thing, you can check here ... https://youtu.be/Ax7uukr9RX8 Have fun
