Avatar-default 5 One of my all time favorites
The experience of playing this game is a little bit similar to playing one of the games in the Mother series. However, Space Funeral goes its own way, and there’s no telling where it will lead until the end.

While the game does have kind of a light and humorous atmosphere, there’s also something sinister about traveling a landscape full of things that want to kill you, the consequent use of blood, the strange things the people you talk to say, and the brooding music.

But most of all, I like this game because of how it reminds me about how exciting it can be to create things. This game reeks of creativity. It feels like thecatamites enjoyed every second of working on it, and no part of the game feels like it was thrown together to make the playtime longer.

Avatar-default 3 Best RPG of 2010? Highly unlikely...
It’s coming up on the end of 2011, and only recently have I gotten a chance to get around to playing Space Funeral. After hearing everyone ranting and raving about how amazing this game was, I became curious. “It’s just like the Mother series! It’s weird and creepy and hilarious all at the same time! Best RPG of 2010!” Needless to say, I was intrigued. So, I downloaded it and gave it a shot.

Now I want to start this off by saying that Space Funeral IS a fantastic game. It’s well paced, lovingly crafted in every department, demented and strangely fun. The graphics are strange and colorful and fit in well with the surreal, dreamlike atmosphere. But is it truly the best RPG of 2010?

In this reviewers opinion… No. While the creator thecalamites purposely made combat incredibly easy to better-pace the insane storyline, the random encounters feel a bit tacked on and probably would have been better off. Dialogue is extremely witty and will make you laugh while feeling extremely uncomfortable; but true to old-school adventure games, choosing the wrong dialogue options in some situations instantly kills you. Hope you saved often! The graphics, while fitting in almost every respect, look kinda cheesy in parts. Though, that was probably what the creator was going for. As I said, they fit in with the ethereal unreality. Leg Horse is nothing more than a strange, four-legged creature with a severed neck-stump. It’s strange, yet endearing. (Author’s note; How exactly does Leg Horse talk? Through it’s neck-hole? Hahaha) The soundtrack may be the most fitting and gorgeous part of this game. The combination of melody with distant voices in the background is both beautiful and unsettling.

While the game does have it’s flaws, more often than not it’s strengths outshine these blemishes. You can truly tell a lot of heart and soul went into this game, and with a game design engine as limited as RPG Maker, it’s great to see something short and sweet and not another insert famous RPG series here clone. It’s certainly worth a playthrough, if only to get a few laughs from the loveable characters and soak in a little twisted, surreal atmosphere. I always see this game on many top 10 RPGs of 2010 lists, and while it’s CERTAINLY one of the bests, I’m not sure it deserves the #1 and #2 slots I consistently see it claiming. Maybe I’m missing something!
