Lisa the Painful is a post-apocalyptic role-playing game (RPG) that was invented by Dingaling Production now LoveBrad Games based in the United States. Understanding and enjoying the game is vital to Lisa’s background story. She is an adopted kid who is abused and gets lost after she runs away from her troubles. The foster Father, Brad Armstrong tries to look for his buddy (Lisa) through an apocalyptic wasteland facing several challenges, people and queer monsters.
The game precedes its prequal called Lisa The First that was released in 2012 as freeware. The previous version had poor controls though still hilarious. The 2014 Lisa is two-dimensional and the graphics are pixelated which I don’t understand because it brings out some sense fun during a time when gamers have grown accustomed to high definition realistic graphics in games. Maybe, it's just the comic setup of the game that makes you forget about the 2D pixelated form.
Lisa the Painful Gameplay
Before I even begin to talk about the game, I must warn you that despite the comic theme and it being a RPG, the game is quite silly. Just the title “Lisa the Painful” suggests that there is some quirkiness to the game. Loading the game introduces you to a world full of survival tactics, sacrifice, and the occasional pervert which is something unusual to say.
Throughout the game, you are forced to make choices that will impact on your character. As you traverse the wasteland and meet the queers, you are forced to save your friends on several occasions by making sacrifices. Sacrifices may involve chopping off your limbs. That's right, chop off your limbs to keep your party members alive or taking a beating or doing something inhuman for them to escape death.
The game takes away the heredity of societal norms that we have gotten used to and comically introduce us to an apocalyptic world that knows no order. While you play the game, you are treated to numerous features such as the occasional character sacrifices visual by the scratches, limb and eye removal. You are given a chance for recruiting a maximum of 30 party members in camps and towns who could help you achieve certain tasks which can be fun. For instance, the white-knuckle shopping cart races. Quite inhuman is expending party members you had earned through a Russian roulette for a huge profit gain.
I must say the game is filled with unique aspects of entertainment and would be a game that I would consider playing every day just to be happy. The different scenes in the game will help you remain hooked to the game and not feel bored. If your spirits are down, then the game is a better solution to boost your mood.
However, I must warn you that the game is full of mature content and wouldn’t be advisable for the younger age.
