The Reality-on-the-Norm (RON) games are a series of short games started by some AGS developers. The idea behinds them is that of sharing characters and settings to create a world that seems more alive than others. A character you meet in one game as an NPC may very well go on a quest him/herself in another chapter, and vice versa. These games are very short, and offer perhaps an hour or less of gameplay. But it's the continuity of the series, and the fact that new games should get released at a faster pace, that makes this series unique. Since the games are designed by different designers, they differ a bit in style from chapter to chapter. However, as they share the same backgrounds, characters and overall atmosphere, you'll feel at home in all RON games once you've played one.

RON1 centers around Davy Jones, a student mage, who by accident summoned a zombie and must put him back to sleep. The puzzles, although few, are rather good, but shouldn't majorly stump you. And if they do, you won't have to look long for the solution as the game world is so small. Music, apart from a very short Reality-on-the-Norm theme song, is all unoriginal MIDI stuff. Overall, the unique series gets a "Recommended!"
