"Diablo meets Dungeon Keeper"
PC Gamer

"Mighty Quest is like pop-corn. You take just a few to taste them and you end up finishing the whole pot without noticing."

"At its core, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot shows a lot of promise. I love the dungeon building and the quick and instant gratification the hack n’ slash looting gives."

"The name may be a bit confusing, then, but there's no mistaking the warmth lurking within wonderful chunky art and the neat dovetailing of complimentary systems."

“Mighty Quest is on its way to becoming the essential multi-player game for the non-multi-player”
The Examiner

About This Game

The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot is a brand new game from Ubisoft Montreal that thrusts you in an outrageous medieval fantasy world called Opulencia where wealth, status and showboating are the name of the game!

As a newcomer to Opulencia, you will hack n slash your way through hundreds of castles designed by the ingenious minds of your fellow players!

Don’t forget to show them who’s boss by constructing deadly keep of your very own – in this kingdom, size really does matter!

Key Features

  • Castle Looting: Prepare your hero for battle and charge into one of many player-created castles to test your skills and might! Oh yeah, and don’t forget all the loot and gold waiting for you in the treasure room at the end of the castle.
  • Castle Defense: Protect your treasure from the greedy hands of your neighbors. You and your friends can build custom castles with majestic rooms and fill them with deadly monsters like fire-breathing dragons, nose-picking Cyclopes, swarming vampires and more. Then, surprise your foes by boosting your castle’s defenses with fearsome fire cannons, spike traps and other surprises. The more enemies perish in your castle, the higher the reward.
  • Variety of Heroes: The outlandish world of Opulencia has an eccentric cast of characters ranging from the knight, Sir Painhammer, a good-natured tough guy to Blackeye Bowgart, an archer with a chip on his shoulder. More will be available in the near future.
  • Character Customization: Plain armor is out this season, shiny metal is in. Use your well-earned gold to shop and customize and level up your heroes in style.
  • Showboating: Think you are the baddest of the bad in all of Opulencia? Prove it by creating different challenges for your foes and compare yourself on the leaderboards.
  • Intense Action: Play on your own schedule. Short sessions means you can play when you want to. It also doesn’t hurt to have others playing at the same time, but you don’t need them playing simultaneously to experience looting at its best.

You know this is a negative review, yet this game is FREE to play so feel FREE and play it yourself.

Anyway - this game looks very nice and i was waiting for it to be released, despite of crap ton super expensive DLC, that game was really nice - good looking, awesome trailers, various funny enemies and the most important - You can BUILD YOUR DUNGEONS AS YOU LIKE, and you can defeat other guys dungeons (or not and rebuild your dungeon as their :) ) - cant be bad right? It's actually AWESOME.

So why is this game actually bad?
-Undescriable amount of grinding - to fill your dungeon you have to buy every single mosnter - better monsters cost more, to unlock better monsters you have to upgrade barracks, to increase the size of the dungeon you have to lvl up - grind grind grind grind GRIND, all the actions gives little to no money - ofcourse they have packs for cash that offers huge amount of monsters skins and gold. - this is not the worst part

-Now you want some fun and actually win some other guys castle right? The system works this way - you build the dungeon - then you complete it yourself to set the default time - if enemy beat that time - your dungeon lost, if you not - you win. If someone beat your castle, you will get the notification and and you can revenge if you invade his castle and beat it. What's the problem? After some point completing the run does not registered by the system. You cant change your castle because you cant complete the 1st run to activate it, you cant progress because your wins are not saved. - Ubisoft support simply ignore that fact. They do know that there is the problem but they do nothing. Actually their support for that game is the worst thing ever.
Support ticket answered like once a week by some nonenglish native person that *sympel doez not undirstand* half of the text you send and answering completly random sh`t that not help at all.

Aside from huge amount of crashes and bugs there are paid dlc that offers top monsters that really hard to beat, you have to grind for them really long time, while other people have them in their 1st castles, so you sweat your a55 off to beat them, while if you win and they will revenge your castle will be easier. and that's sad.

This game was super, and should have become a hit. But i guess ubisoft market leaders want some quick cash and nothing more.

p.s. Glad to see that all the DLC for this game are removed from steam page.

Game is very bland, too grindy, and deserves not a lot of words to describe it. Base Builder game with rpg instead of rts elements.

Really fun idea, just far to much of a pay-to-win structure.

Spent enough time on it to feel the repetative grinding motions too.

I think you should get this game it is a lot of fun but just a tip when being shown how to upgrade the heart of your place only do it once if you try doing it again the your game will bug out and not start up again pro tip haha and yeah I know it's shutting down.. it really sucks! I haven't played in so long then started up a new game and then boom I see it's being closed.. rip boy's rip.. it was a good run! SOOO much fun on this game I hope they bring it back later on down the road or even some one else make it again heh I'll really miss this game :( but even in it's time of closing I still say play it while you can it truly is a fun ggame in my opinion and I'll miss screwing around with my friends on it

Man I loved this game! You won't get to play it though, it caught a rash of hateful little nosebleeders who would rage against players as 'pay to win' horribles and so without anyone supporting the game it is being turned off now. May all those brats have children that are just like them! You'll never get to try this particular flavor of fun, your life has been deprived of it so why not curse those brats along with me and then go buy something in your own favorite f2p game to show those punks who's got work, gets themselves paid, and rains tigerblood winnings on their funtime like a boss. Cheers!

Update: Dec 5, 2014 patch added a way to buy and sell items on the Steam Market!
Game is blatantly pay-to-win as you can now buy and sell castle defenses on Steam Market. If you have a disposable income and you're looking for a shallow game where you can just buy your way to the top of the leaderboards using Steam Market then this game is for you!

TLDR: Game is a decent dungeon-maker / dungeon-raider, but is highly Pay-to-Win; be prepared to grind countless hours if you don't want to use the real-money cash shop for "boosts", "item packs", or just outright buy the good defenses from Steam Market. Also Ubisoft DRM (U-play) sucks!

Has lots of potential to be a great game but sadly won't live up to it's potential due to developers focusing more on Pay-to-Win content instead of balance.

This game had been in closed beta for almost a year and had a major rework due to backlash and criticisms over their shoddy mobile-games-style "pay-dollars-to-not-wait-X-hours" business model. Amazingly, it took them almost a year before they realized their business model ain't working for a PC game - despite the constant complaints and whines of the players.

Game got rework and released open beta on Febuary, 2014. It was buggy and unbalanced, but that was expected for a game that was on beta. What's not to be expected though, is for devs to start shoving DLC, advertisments for other ubisoft games, and locking characters behind a paywall - when the game is supposed to be testing for bugs and balance. Isn't the whole point of a beta to flesh-out the kinks of the game? Not "try to milk as much money from your players before the game even gets a full release".

My major complaint about this game is the terrible pace of balance fixes. Patches usually come in a bi-monthly basis. People have listed problems with the game's balance ever since the start of the open beta - problems that made the game repetitive, stale, and boring. The devs even acknowledged these problems themselves even as early as March - yet they barely touched the balance when it comes to patches; it's usually 1 minor balance change followed by more DLC, content disguised to entice you to spend money on blings (pets, costumes, crafting patch), or more advertisements.

The slow pace of balance changes results in "flavor-of-the-month" setups where people will just resort to the most imbalanced setups that's currently available. This is what makes the game a repetitive and boring choir, as 90% of the time, you'll find people are just using the same setups with little variations in their defences. This trend had been going on for over a year - and looking at how the devs are more content to shove DLC on your face than listening to players' feedback - then this game ain't going anywhere.

Update: (August 2014 - Crafting patch)
The crafting patch has turned the game into Pay-to-Win, again!.. This patch introduced crafting rare monsters and equipment by collecting rare materials - these materials are so rare that most players who don't spend money on the cash shop will only be able to craft very few rare monsters and equipment; those who use the cash shop have a clear advantage over those who don't.

Update: (October 2014 - Release)
Game got released and it's still Pay-to-Win; I tried attacking castles but those who have tons of rare monsters seem impossible for me to win against. Meanwhile, my castle with only a few rare monsters get rolled over by other players.

Update (December 5, 2014 - Added the ability to buy and sell items on the Steam Market)
Game is blatantly pay-to-win as you can now buy and sell casle defenses on Steam Market. If you have a disposable income and you're looking for a shallow game where you can just buy your way to the top of the leaderboards using Steam Market then this game is for you!

So I downloaded this game today.... only to find out that ubisoft is going to close the game down in 5 days from the client news.....
i played for a bit and it' mildly fun. Makes me a bit sad when you see games with lots of fun potential just get scrapped like this.

Supported these guys in alpha and loved the game. Saved all my in game currency I purchased for later content.

Shortly after they changed the entire game style so that everyones defenses are in essence exactly the same; ruining the game. But I stuck in there hoping it would get changed back.

Then they released a new character that I had to spend money for and could not use my in game currency to purchase; trying to milk me, an early supporter, for more money. Awful money grabbing company.I have never purchased anything from Ubisoft since and never will again which is unfortunate that south park is doing business with them as I will not purchase their game either.

This game was fun but now its more pay to win than ever. Unless you grind like there is no tomorrow you can't build the traps. The old ones you had already spent time and money on they put as diseased and are basically depowered trash.

I was one of the guys who paid 100 bucks for this game, to make it happen.
It was fun until they added restrictions to what you could do on YOUR castle.
I blame the players and the devs. Too many people too soft, so they had to confort the whinners.
This thing is just awful now. Don't even bother.

Steam page is misleading, no actual multiplayer or coop, you just fight other peoples dungeons and people fight yours, this is not a game to play with your freinds. Dont care that its f2p its stupid.
