A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Buy Now$10.00 USD or more

Ouroboros presents a bright, cheerful world in which something is horrifyingly wrong. The hero has a princess to save and a quest set before him, but there are unsettling signs that all this has happened before. As you play the game, you'll come to realize that the dungeons and monsters are meaningless distractions from the task of uncovering the truth.

Ouroboros is an unorthodox RPG with time travel mechanics and the ability to manipulate events down multiple alternate paths. The combat is quick and fun - with no character levels, there's no need to grind! Instead you'll gain new strategies and techniques as you uncover deeper levels of the story and get closer to the truth at the heart of it all.

Seems to be a big game

So there is a Linux version ? I only ask for confirmation because the file that is downloaded for it is called Android.zip.

Sorry, but there isn't. I thought the Android version would work natively in Linux, but it only works for Linux users running emulation. I'd remove that version, but there's been continued interest in it.

Thanks for the clarification. Are there any plans to make a Linux version for Ouroboros ? If not will future games you make have a Linux version like Crimson gray did ?

I'll always make a Linux version if the engine I use for the game supports Linux. In practical terms, that means all my VNs will have one, but few of my RPGs will.


Fair enough. Thank you for the response !

With the last MV update, you should be able to provide a real Linux version now: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/rpg-maker-mv-now-has-a-linux-version-and-...

Please do, or please remove Linux from the list of supported platforms in the description, cause it's a bit confusing.

Game is awesome regardless.

Good game. It's best to go into it blind, but if you're really on the fence about buying it, you can find an extended demo for this on Newgrounds.

2 suggestions for the developer:

* Include a cheat to skip the first "cycle" of the game (for players coming from the free version)
* [EDIT: Fulfilled!] Make a Linux version as (mistakenly?) advertised


Great game that in many ways manages to turn the 4th wall into a window. Not only turning many of the classic fantasy tropes on their head, the game also manages to introduce many meta concepts as well that only add to the plausibility of the setting, giving the player a real look into the consequences of dealing with and moving on from the world the MCs are trapped within. The connections made and alluded to make the touching moments all the more impact and the times of needed laughter all the more lively.

It also makes some well hidden but decently set philosophical points about many issues both real and fantastical, one of the strongest being "what if one's life *really was* like a vidio game?...what would you do?" They answers to this question differ from character to character and really shine a light on how each one has adapted to the situation.

Buy this game, it is worth the play and the supporting of the author...and the ladies are cute too :p


it's a really cool game. and it also has a different plot/story! can you believe it?! XP it's funny, sad, sexy, fun, engaging, and romatic sometimes as well. it's really pretty interesting, and fun. if you like rpg elements with sex, and an original plot/story, then i'd try it. :)
