App description: Crystal Picnic is a lighthearted and colourful tribute to the classic era of action RPGs! Join a sarcastic gardener and a wannabe knight as they journey across the kingdom chasing after ants who stole magic crystals from the castle. Oh, and did we mention the ants have gone mad because they're EATING those crystals? Yeah, that makes things much more unpredictable! Hours of exploration, mesmerizing platform-style combat, plenty of new friends to meet and loads of wacky enemies to encounter. When you fight chubby birds and ants carrying bazookas, you know you're in for a good time!

Some cool features of the game are:

Real-time battles
Lots of RPG elements (equipment, stats, etc...)
A humourous story in a unique setting
Tidy pixel graphics
A great soundtrack
Small download size

Playable in English, French and German.

So, looooong time no see! Hehe. The last time I posted here I think was around 2010 when we had just released Monster RPG 2. Anyway I'm back with a new game! It's also an RPG but this time an action RPG called Crystal Picnic.

Crystal Picnic is a fun and colourful action RPG with a humorous story in a unique setting. The closest thing to the style of this game is Zelda 2 or the "Tales" series of games. You walk around and explore in a top-down perspective and battles use a platforming style.

There is also an Android version and I'll link the Android forum to this post.

Hope you like it! Thanks!

This game is delightful! You can tell a lot of care and attention to detail has gone into this. It's well worth the download.

Looks like nobody has tried it yet. I'll TOFTT. It looks too good to pass up.

EDIT: Damn! I need 7.1 to play. I'm running 7.0 right now. I'll have to wait until I can delete enough to update my phone or wait for an update for the game. I was excited to play this too!
