One Way Heroics: Introduction and History - The concept of a "point of no return" is a common one in RPGs -- so why not make a whole game based around that concept, and base it on the popular "Mystery Dungeon" formula?
One Way Heroics: Mystery Dungeon, Forest, Plains and Mountains - Mystery Chronicle: One Way Heroics is unique in the Mystery Dungeon series in that it's not confined to labyrinthine dungeons; in fact, you spend most of your time traversing a randomly generated overworld.
