Can you make an RPG using Microsoft's Excel?

    Maybe you can, maybe you can't. If you can, can you make it like the picture above? The game is made by an accountant named Cary Walkin and it looks boss! If there were no grids I would probably believe if someone told me he made this using flash.

    Features of the game includes: 

  • Random enemies: Over 2000 possible enemies with different AI abilities.
  • Random items: 39 item modifiers result in over 1000 possible item combinations and attributes.
  • An interesting story with 4 different endings depending on how the player has played the game.
    8 boss encounters, each with their own tactics.
  • 4 pre-programmed arenas followed by procedurally generated arenas. Each play-through has its own challenges.
  • 31 Spells. There are many different strategies for success.
  • 15 Unique items. Unique items have special properties and can only drop from specific enemies.
  • 36 Achievements.
    So, do you want to try to make one? Try to share them with your friends if you did! Also, share it in the comment section for me to try :)
