A downloadable game for Windows

The King of Dread, that is what they knew you as. High and mighty in castle Bloodburg as you ruled the realms just and fair. However, not all inhabitants of the lands agreed with your reign. One night, the captain of the Wolf Knights, Rorick, enacted his plan to overthrow you. He succeeded in destroying your body and though that has perished forever, your spirit still lives on. With a plan for revenge you have fled into into the wastelands in search for a new vessel to house your soul. 


Dread the Rabbit is a turn based roguelike game with randomly generated maps and permanent death. Journey across seven environments to reclaim your throne. Unlock long forgotten magic stored in the relics of Ancients. Earn boons from the gods and empower yourself at their altars.

wizards enymy is to hard


this is really good

I feel like i can play this game for hours

Game is glitched for me :/ everytime I try to play it just thinks I'm holding the up arrow key so I can't press anything and when I open the menu by pressing "Esc" it just keeps scrolling up through the menu and I can't close it, having to close the game. Not sure if it is on my side since I tried to test if I was having the same glitch on other games and just on notepad itself.
Really like the art and the idea and kinda bummed about the glitch. :(

Hey, sorry to hear.  I know rpg maker 2003 can have some issues with keyboard input not working on windows 10. But haven't heard of that one before. You could try this fix https://steamcommunity.com/app/362870/discussions/0/541907867763056737/ and see if it works for you.


I love this kind of games. Here's my video.


This game is amazing. I love the retro feeling. It makes me feel like playing on a gba or gbc. This is definitely well made giving the player the choice to quickly get to the next level or clear the enemies to get a reward. This gameplay mechanic is really interesting and one that I have not exposed myself to alot.  A really great game and ill rate this a  rabbit/10


Great game. Love the retro visuals.
