About This Game

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

Thoroughly amusing, and even worth an occasional replay. Definitely a sweet addition to my library for a buck.

Protip: "buy" the Movement Pack DLC for the ultimate experience in basic character movement.

Good casual game with a couple of hours content depending on how much youwish to do while not making doing everything too hard or time consuming.

I played for free with family sharing but at £1.99 I'd certainly buy it.

A pretty mediocre platformer with a short playtime that still manages to vainly try to keep a stale joke afloat. This would be a tolerable game for free, but for money, I don't recommend it. "Upgrade Complete" on Kongregate does this joke better and for free. The achievements, however, are a cakewalk, including the speedruns. 4/10

All achievements requires relatively little mastery of this tepid trash. It's no slog except suffering through a few playthroughs. Expect an easy 100%, 3/10 to get all achievements for the difficulty scale.

I really liked this platformer. Controls were good (using xbox360 gamepad), and platforming wasn't too difficult, but not trivial either. It is simply a platformer where you gain additional abilities over time that help you get further. The humor was decent too. There are 2 campaigns, "DLC Quest" and "Live Freemium or Die", both of which were fun. I spent less than an hour completing the first with 100%, and 2 hours on the 2nd. Note, if you buy all DLC too quickly, you might miss some of the humor (especially the first campaign). I recommend buying as you need it. I do wish I held off on buying some in the second campaign so I didn't have to hunt so hard for the remaining coins I missed when I needed something. The only DLC I actually regret getting, is the brown filter, which just made it harder to see things. I'd rather have gone back after beating it once. I had to look up a guide only once when I was way short of money and wasn't sure what I was missing. At some point in the 2nd campaign you buy some DLC that expands the world, and you just have to know where, or you will be hunting around for a while. (5/5 stars)

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

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.

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...

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.
