RIZ-ZOAWD, the Oz RPG, is a pastel wonderland

Retroactively announcing my week-long staycation. Hi again!

As of today, there’s a new Japanese trailer for RIZ-ZOAWD, the DS role-playing game featuring a ruby-slippered heroine (and her little dog, too).

I read somewhere that RIZ-ZOAWD is “loosely based on the Wizard of Oz.” By ‘loosely,’ I guess they meant ‘strongly.’ Which means that Kaitlen Exum, Nik Braatz’s mom, and I will all be adding it to our respective Amazon wishlists.

For my own part, I own no fewer than four copies of the book. So yeah, D3 better plan to localize the game for an English-speaking audience. /fist-shaking

    Oh, you’re so right! I do indeed want it. (And quickly, before the estate of L. Frank Baum gets all litigious on D3’s ass.)

    Thanks for putting this on my radar. However, my piqued interest in all things OZ lead me to this disturbing gem:

    The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz, starring Quentin Tarantino as himself?! Dare I add this to my Netflix queue?
