Sandfall is a short demo for an upcoming RPG game with a unique battle system, in which the player can only use one character throughout the entire adventure. Swords are traded for guns in this futuristic western setting, where each bullet is precious and has to be bought or discovered by searching inside boxes. Adversaries cannot be expected to drop items for the player to collect.

Shooting at enemies from a distance does not bear the usual rewards of experience or riches, since they will respawn after a short period of time. Money is rare, and cannot be acquired from enemies. A character's level does not increase automatically when experience is gained, instead it must be traded for lessons or new skills by approaching pit fighters and children on the streets.

Press the C key to execute an action, or tap the X key to access your inventory screen. Use the alt and enter key to play in full screen mode. Plenty of potential but little is showcased in this teaser, with only two cities and a small cavern to explore.

Name: Sandfall
Developer: Despain
Category: RPG
Type: Freeware
Size: 30MB

finally someone that goes outside the FF mold of having a veritable military company of people with your hero.

i often dislike those games as one end up more of thinking group tactics then character.

still, there is the fallout games and arena series, where your one person (while you can pick up more people at times, but not forced to) and some choices and actions will be reflected later on (like in the fallout end game summary).
