Despre acest joc

What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.

Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future...

Key Features:

  • Two full length campaigns: the original award-winning "DLC Quest", and the brand new "Live Freemium or Die"
  • Platforming action! Coins to collect, a princess to save, a bad guy (or two) to defeat. You like that stuff, right?
  • Over 30 different DLC packs, each providing quiet introspection on the state of the gaming industry
  • Over 20 achievements to earn and make you feel reasonably satisfied with yourself
  • Online leaderboards

I was expecting the game to make a few snide jokes about DLCs here and there. Instead, the entire game was one long rant about the current state of the video game industry. Don't play if you're looking for actual entertainment.

This game is just plain fun! Pick it up if you like outlandish commentary on how things are being made today!

Pretty decent for a meme game. Worth a dollar or so if you can catch it on sale.

Pro's:
For me there are none.
Con's:
To basic.
Non interesting story.

Overall this game is not for people like me that love sandbox,FPS and large story games.

A cute game about attacking bad DLC design, it falls short as an enjoyable game. It has the same level of quality I would expect from a Flash game, probably not worth $3

At first, I was dissapointed on how short the game was. I was flattered by the hilarious comedy insulting every video game ever, but still dissapointed. But after the (second) credits rolled, I saw the Live Freemium or Die mode.
It was a very appriciated length, and I flat-out loved it. Good game! Worth your money...

This game is pain. It causes nothing but pain. Serious lack of enemies, cheesy jokes and annoyingly tedious back-and-forth quests. It's not worth your time.

It was a nice little game... kinda short though, but it'll guarantee you a couple laughs.

Although, DLC Quest is best played all in one sitting, because often when I come back, I've usually have forgotten what the heck I was doing.

Great little game. Only takes 60-90 minutes to play though, but the construction of it is fantastic. This one and Evoland (first game) are both kind of similar in how the game evolves as you play it.

Should have had a real microtransaction to activate the main menu for 99 cents and requirement to beat DLC Quest before playing Freemium or Die unless you paid 5 dollars for actual DLC Quest Freemium or Die early unlock DLC.

10/10 Had to buy all DLC with in-game currency to complete the game. Unlike other games where you need to pay with real money to get complete expirience.

Want to hear music? Get the DLC. Want to move left? Better get that DLC. Want to jump? You guessed it, gotta get the DLC.

This game brilliantly pokes fun at the gaming industry and this trend of witholding content when releasing games simply to sell it to us later as DLC. The game has a low price and a high amount of comedic value. I definitely recommend.

DLC Quest is a simplistic satire game about DLC. Sadly the joke gets old after 15 minutes as you'd probably expect. After all transforming a joke into a game doesn't improve the quality of the joke, but rather, in this case transforms it into a meaningless message that comes off as repetitive and obnoxious, especially now that aggressive DLC practices have died down considerably. Gameplay as a whole is lackluster and generally shoddy, with boring mechanics. The graphics feel uninspired, perhaps the only decent part of this is the chip tune music.

Had I reviewed this game 2 years ago when I first played it, I would have given it a positive review, but looking back a mixed-negative review is more appropriate. If you're going to buy this, get it on sale.

Personal rating: "Good" = 3/5

PROS:
+ lots of funny references to games
+ makes fun of pre-orders, DLCs & micro-transactions
+ decent platformer gameplay
+ 2 campaigns

CONS:
- short game time
- not much replayability
- MS-paint style graphics (although intended they still look bad)

Comment:
This game makes fun of companies and their recent DLC madness and does it with style. You unlock parts of the game by buying DLCs ... but you can relax, it is in game with the coins you collect. While the gameplay and style is easy and the graphics are really simple I would say this game was fun to play. There is a lot of stuff to discover even though it adds little to the amount of playtime you get out of this game. While it mimics a lot of what was and is going on in the gaming industry it managed to do it as a nice platformer. However, because it adds very little it does not shine in anything but references. So while I do recommend getting it you cannot await something spectacular. It is there for casual fun and that is what is to be expected.

This is a truly fine little comedic gem!

The platforming is challenging at times, but mostly straightforward which gives you a nice sense of flow. The music pieces can get somewhat repetative, but only if you're going for all items and spend a longer time in the different areas than a smooth/speedrun playthrough would require. The theme for the Dark World is amazing, I spent some extra time in there just for the sake of the music!

But what really makes this game a must have is the satire of games, DLC, the whole business of games, and all the references to other games and gaming phenomenons! I wanted to take screenshots of almost every single line of dialouge because it is so much fun & point on!

Instead, I recommend you play it for yourself, and have a nice, fun time!

DLC Quest is a fun little game. It's not a hard little game, but it's a good little game. It's got a cute little world inhabited by quirky little characters. You jump around several little platforms, and you fight with a sharp little sword. You collect hundreds of little coins and buy useful little DLC packs. The entirety of this game can be completed in a single little hour. But the point of this game isn't really about any of those little traits, it's about the messages and the perspective on issues relating to the video game industry and our society as a whole. If it sounds like an enjoyable time to you, you'll probably enjoy it.

This game is a middle finger to companies like EA who abuse the DLC system. The way this game parodies gaming in general is outstanding writing on their part. The game itself is a pretty simple collect / talk / get lost kind of indie game, and you will most likely be playing this game for the script rather than the gameplay. A game that takes perhaps two hours to complete (double that if you play both campaigns) is worth it's current price tag. I hope to find more games like this in the future, because I had a lot of fun.
