grindstar.jpg While RPGs are popular with a lot of gamers, the developer of Grindstar is definitely not a fan of the genre. Created for the still on-going Fuck This Jam, a week-long game jam dedicated to having developers create titles for genres they despise, Grindstar is a game about a knight named Sir Protag and his attempts to beat boss after boss. According to the developer, the game was intended to discuss the ridiculous need for grinding in some role-playing games, "Loads of people love a good long WoW session, but there comes a point where grinding really becomes monotonous."

Short and a little silly, Grindstar can be played here.
