This Comic's Cast:

Most of these games have items strewn everywhere. You find the random four or five you need and put them to good use for one of the puzzles in the game. This is right in line.

Of course, usually you have to play through the game four or five times before you figure out all the items you were supposed to get that you won't be able to grab now that half the game is unavailable to you.

Yes, that happens a lot.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
