When you hear people on Steam lament about "another RPG Maker game," it's because of stuff like this.
The writing isn't bad, no. It isn't even worth referring to as "writing." This may have been made by some youngsters or something because this reminds me of the kind of thing I wrote with my buddies back in middle school because of the absurd lack of depth to anything and childish dialogue. EX: Main character walks into a monastery and comments, "This monastery is s**t!" or some such. He just uses profanity and yells at things I ASSUME so that he sounds like some kind of cool dude with a 'tude or something? That's half the time. The other half he's just blandly helpful. He loves his girlfriend (or I guess you could choose to not tell your girlfriend you love her?). He's mostly helpful, but he complains a lot. Which is probably supposed to be some kind of parody of RPG tropes and their bland fetch quests and such. Maybe he's supposed to be bipolar? Regardless, there are a ton of easily avoided spelling and grammar mistakes (EX: use of the word "abandonned").
I'm not just ragging on these guys for choice of words and typo's, though. Oh, no. The story itself reads like a kid wrote it. Seriously, it's like Axe Cop only not hilarious or creative. For example, at some point you enter a village and are asked to go to a cave to stop... bandits or something (?) from attacking said village. A mercenary guy joins your party to help you as he is emotionally invested in helping this village, I think. In the cave you fight some kind of ghostly knights and an ogre. Then you stumble upon a time travel amulet for no reason. The main character goes "Sweet!" and finds out how to go back in time. The whole reason you came to that cave (remember the village being attacked?) was completely forgotten the moment you stepped into that cave and the warrior who joined you silently sticks with you for the rest of the adventure, given no characterization or lines of dialogue again (save for maybe pointing out the amulet is a time travel amulet). Later on, after you're done using the time travel amulet, a pop-up tells you the amulet is now broken. I can only assume this was some kind of afterthought when someone asked, "Why don't they just travel back in time again?" Maybe it only held enough magic for one use, but where does this place you in time? And why was the demon you were chasing exist in the same time line? It seems like when it broke you went back to the future and yet he's there with you. What kind of sloppy nonsense is this!
The whole game is like this. The first town has you start in a prison that you break out of. But then it's said the prison guards somehow hold the town hostage. So, doesn't that make them warlords or something? Not just "prison guards?" Why do they bother running a prison? Did they turn the castle into a prison? And they all live there? What?
How about the combat? Well, it's overly basic. I guess some people think this is par for the course for RPG Maker games or JRPG's, but I think it's plain lazy. Sometimes you have to heal or manage your mana, so I guess that's something. But there's so little strategy and so much overlap between the classes.
If there's one consolation it's the music. Sweet Christmas, this person poured his/her heart into it. I mean, it's not that it's outstanding. You know? Like I'm not rushing to get the MP3's onto my iPod or anything. But there's actual composition, effort, know-how, and emotion in it. There's even a live (I think) guitar in there! I'm a sucker for metal, true, but those boss fights were intense ONLY because of this chugging distortion and orchestral synth-work. Composer, please, whoever you are, ditch these guys. You actually have some amount of talent and skill! These guys can't even piece together any kind of semblance of a game.

The game looks really nice and the story is okay. The soundtrack is nice and the background music as well. And the game has some very pretty visuals.
However, the game is rather short. The story is mediocre at best and the dialogue is poor. The combat is not very compelling and fun and gets boring immediately.

by Lucky Thirteen on Steam
Memories of a Vagabond is a surprisingly well done RPG in which the protagonist must save his fiancée from the claws of an evil demon.
Like many other indie games, it's not the most polished game ever made.
Unlike many indie developers, however, the developers of "Vagabond" still did a pretty decent job. It's obvious that they put a fair amount of effort into making the game.

The almost 3 hours I put into this game was enough to complete it. But since it was only 5 bucks I cannot complain about length. The story is decently written and paces okay. Feels more like an one time D&D adventure pack with JRPG elements. My only real complaint is that I wish there was more of it. For $5 well worth the show, kind of like buying a movie ticket. It also has a NG plus mode but I don't think I'm going to dredge through it again to see how my alternative choices would effect anything.
do not recoache and dood soundtrack.+Pretty vdbat ame's low price point and an available demo do not make this a huge investment and some may find the game worth the time to play it. It does have some redeeming value
by Weltall8000 on Steam
Memories of a Vagabond is an RPG reminiscent of the old SNES glory days. Battles feature party members opposed to enemies in lines on either side of the screen a la Final Fantasy VI (or III in the US), there is a basic class system offering some versatility for the main character, as well as a few other recruitable allies with various set classes. While the game is an RPG Maker game, the visuals are reasonably good for the style of the game. The music is a noteworthy strength of the game, generally being catchy, exciting, or otherwise appropriate for the given circumstances.
I do not recommend this game however. For all of the things right, there are a number of faults that detract from the overall experience leaving the game, as a whole, lacking. The game is short, at a somewhat methodical pace, trying to collect everything in each level, the game's first playthrough didn't take more than a couple of hours. Most of my time in the game was fooling around with the controller settings in which there were legitimately issues upon release (to the developer's credit, they acted quickly to resolve this, kudos to them for that).
The gameplay seemed somewhat unresponsive, particularly in menus, being an RPG, this wasn't gamebreaking, but still slightly annoying throughout the game. A number of glitches existed and in the short time it took to complete the game, I encountered the screen freezing after a scripted puzzle moved the screen, rain that carried over to other areas (including inside a shop and houses), etc. In combat, most of the abilities felt uninspired and, on normal difficulty setting at least, they could be all but ignored. Attack and/or heal pretty much would win the game if characters were decently equipped. The attacks didn't feel necessary or worthwhile to do. For instance, one of the final abilities I acquired with my assassin class only dealt about 10% more damage than my regular attack on average, for a relatively high SP cost. SP moves felt lackluster as they cost large amounts of SP (particularly for non mage classes), but only boasted marginal damage increases for using them with few added effects that often were unreliable. (It MIGHT apply a status effect. and to this day, I've never sucessfully paralyzed an enemy with the mage's Paralyze spell.)
Story, was rather cliche and didn't feel relevant most of the time (if the gameplay were stronger, it might have been easier to overlook). Dialogue was usually particularly weak, with frequently mispelled words and conversation, at times, so unnatural to the point it was distracting.
-Combat is not compelling, particularly abilities don't feel useful/necessary.
Fortunately the game's low price point and an available demo do not make this a huge investment and some may find the game worth the time to play it. It does have some redeeming values, The game felt as though it had quite a bit of potential and could have hit the mark, if it were lengthened and given more polish.
A short rp cannot recommend this title.
by RPG Gamer Man on Steam
A short rpg about playing different people and they are effected by certain events..finding that this game is quite short about what it is, i cannot really recommend it. The stories are interesting from the different people you play as, but the game becomes a boring grindfest to fight the last boss.
Sorry, i cannot recommend this title.
Not bad for a RP'm going to say I recommend the game simply because it was fun. However, the game feels unfinished it has new game plus like chrono trigger but i didn't really see the point... I discovered everyt
by Thalack on Steam
Not bad for a RPG maker game it does have some chrono trigger and final fantasy features too it. But this is probably the shortest rpg I have ever played I beat this game in just 2-3 hours it's incredibly easy.
I'm going to say I recommend the game simply because it was fun. However, the game feels unfinished it has new game plus like chrono trigger but i didn't really see the point... I discovered everything as i went along and clicked on everything as well. Even did the little side arena.

. Thank you for making this review possible!Few words about the game
Memories of a Vagabond may not be the best one RPG availiable on market but for sure is one of the most interesing ones around. You play the role of a young guy, whose soon-to-be wife was kidnapped and your quest is to rescue her with help of allies you met on the way. Cliché, I know. One thing that surpriced me was uniqe idea of "dying" and switching between souls, really liked that one. For me, it was quite enjoyable ride, especially that in past I used to play one RPG after another so it brings back memories. Good times man, good times. Overally, could be better, feels like devs tried to test as many ideas of games as they could in one game. But still, cool, little RPG worth it's price tag.Advantages
- - Easy to learn mechanics of fighting and crafting
- - Enjoyable gameplay itself, grinding is not necessary to complete game, bunch of side quests
- - Suprisingly good soundtrack for game on RPG Maker engine
- - Unique idea of being soul that is able to change bodies (classes) after death
- - Short, took me about 3 hours to finish, including most of side quests and bit of grind
- - Main theme of game is really overused and not really desirable, makes players sigh every time it shows up around
- - Quite simple, alot of potential is left out. No stats, no detailed items nor characters
- - Dialogues from time to time feels like they've been written on a really childish standard

Averaames to play in this time. Sorry for the harsh words, developer. I bet you are reading this (because developer is so cool that he is actually reading and responding to discussions and community hub). You said you will
by PainFoinmr on Steam
Average RPGmaker game. I will compare this to an old Final Fantasy. The combat is good, there may be some bad balances, but overall it's good. It's a good introduction to turn-based RPGs as well, if the player haven't played those. Another good thing is that the game is very short. You won't be sitting for 20+ hours like in Final Fantasy. This game features all those things - classes, spells, items, chests, skills, stats in just 3 hours. But yet, it's too short, the story wasn't gripping (at first the game wasn't gripping at all but I had to force myself to finish it. It is just 3 hours though).
But there are far better games to play in this time. Sorry for the harsh words, developer. I bet you are reading this (because developer is so cool that he is actually reading and responding to discussions and community hub). You said you will be working on a new game. I wish you most of luck to make it far better than this one. You have the potential!
le the preb>-aloood aab>-very basched story-ch overlay doesn't work we balance probleals don't expla3 hours bat also suffers froe attempts to add other features, like housing and crafting, but they are pretty use
by stranger1982 on Steam
In Memories of a Vagabond you're an hero given the chance to reincarnate in different bodies to carry out his vengeance after a demon took away your girlfriend and killed you: said bodies act as classes and you can freely switch between them (whenever you die or reach a certain location) during your journey,
While the premise is very interesting and the actual game is decent enough for an RPGMaker title it sadly suffers from terrible writing, basic gameplay and some balance problems.
-a few dialogue lines were actually funny
-a good amount of different items to equip
-the game as a whole works and is decent enough
-very basic combat
-shallow, cliched story
-Steam overlay doesn't work with the game
-some balance problems
-tutorials don't explain how certain things work (like having to travel the map to find where dead party members end up for you to resurrect)
-very short at 2/3 hours
My two hours with Memories of a Vagabond were actually decent as, all things considered, the gameplay is bearable, there's no glaring bugs and its short length at least ensures the game doesn't overstay its welcome.
Sadly for an RPG its story is terribly, terribly weak....not only it's basically one cliche after the other but the actual narrative is amateurish with short, shallow dialogues that are dull at best: the fact the game also sports a good amount of broken English and typos only makes things worse.
The combat also suffers from some balance problems as enemies can easily hit your party for half your HPs even on Normal and with decent equipment: this means you'll have to often stop attacking to cast heal spells on all your party or have to spend consumables to resurrect them once they hit the floor. I also had a feeling some of the classes were definitely worse than others.
There's some attempts to add other features, like housing and crafting, but they are pretty useless and feel like an afterthought at best. Memories of A vagabond isn't horrible, and might even be worth a shot if you find it in a bundle and want a quick RPG fix, but it simply fails at too many things for me to recommend.
