If you have your nose buried in spreadsheets all day at the office, you might enjoy a little change of pace even with Excel open. Cary Walkin, a chartered accountant up in the great white north, has created an RPG using just Excel’s macro system. It works on the Windows versions of Excel 2007 – 2013.
The story goes that you are captured by the Emperor and are thrown into an arena to fight for your life. On the left, you have your position and the enemies. On the right, your stats (blue) and the enemy’s stats (red) are shown. You can move using the arrow keys below your stats. You can also use melee and ranged attacks, heal yourself, or cast spells (after level 10).
