A downloadable game for Windows

Rebound is a game that plays similarly to LISA: The Painful RPG and you play as an amnesic person who had just awoken on an island. The current available version of Rebound is only Chapter 1 of the game.

I just finished this!

It was fun, I enjoyed the jokes in the early parts of the game. (Some jokes after returning to Barrel town are funny, too.)

The music was definitely what sucked me into the game, & definitely is great.

The "first chapter" is surprisingly long. I'm impressed. A bit of the game was a surprise, but I'll keep that vague due to spoilers.

There were a few glitches, but they're just the type that were easy to laugh off.

Lastly I'd like to add; the art & character design is pretty cool! Did you do the overworld backgrounds? I think they are super good.

I did just about every thing art related aside from menu sprites

Look, I'm EXTREMELY picky with my RPGs, I spend hours and hours searching for only gold, and I must say, this is an actual diamond

Really wish to this go forward

This game is, personally? One of my favorites, even until now.
I've been watching this game develop ever since Venus was still a Boss.
In all honesty, the gameplay is good, and the art is better. But what made this game, like many others, great, for me, was the amount of effort put into every second of it's playtime.
The game has a special place in my heart, personally, due to me and a friend being built off it when the Server was still up. And another having one of their characters in a Tabletop being inspired by Ronny.
The game still holds up about a year or two later, and I've never lost sight of it's fun and the emotion it brings out.
This isn't even to speak on it's gameplay, or the music tailored for the game itself. Magic Men in particular, is a great one to point out.
The combat is engaging, and each encounter is satisfying once you have everything sought out. It makes you want to seek out encounters instead of feeling obliged. The characters are lively, and they each have their own special gimmicks that, whilst, one-sided, are charming. It really holds out into the imagination of the player. 
Pinyaps' art is a blessing to hold for me, since every line is eye candy to behold once the line start coming to life. 
Although it's been years since it's activity and presence has died out, I'm still thinking about this game. And it's unfortunate that the game's direction is bleak for the forseeable future, but what there is of it now is still gonna be something that some people will certainly have fond memories of.
I'm sorry this comment has gone all over the place, and that it's been a slog to read, but I just wanted to give my apprecation for what there is of this game today.
Thank you for bringing this game to life, sincerely. I wish you good luck for whatever endeavors you seek out in the future.

This game is amazing and i love everything about it <3

I remember once seeing this game's music on a Youtube channel about a year ago. I found the Demo and fell in love with it, and then I found the Discord. I've just gotta say, after watching this grow for so long, this is in my eyes a masterpiece you've created.

Time to roll out the red carpet.

Thank you.

Hey uh, is this game still developing? the game is so good. and i'll wait if you do.

It's on hiatus until I'm done with college.

some of the character designs can be better but the game at the moment its pretty good, i like when the game make me choose if i would save mi health or fight for experience. 

Character designs are definitely my weakest points when it comes to making a game but I'm glad you liked the game.

I would love to help you on that

Additionally, "If Windows tells you that Rebound.exe might be dangerous don't be alarmed. It seems to do this with every RPG Maker extractor application." why not use a traditional ZIP extension or to the very least a RAR extension rather than an executable that extracts itself?

I do believe that this type of executables are very sketchy, I don't say that your game has a virus or anything, I don't trust single EXE files that extracts themselves and it doesn't surprise me if antiviruses catch this as a malware (Even if it's a false positive).

I noticed that there was a folder called "ffi" with unrelated Unix files and a bunch of Ruby files, do you think that the game can run on Linux, because I have a Debian system (64 bits ARM) and it would be interesting to try the game out in it.

10/10 would play again
