Reviews

“I’m really impressed with Driftmoon. Not just because it’s such an impressive indie project, but because it was a memorable RPG in its own right. A fun, light-hearted game, with a more serious story running beneath it. And once it’s over, there’s still more to do.”

“It's been a long time since I enjoyed a game as much as this one. Think Quest for Glory and Frayed Knights mixed and blended together and you'll have some idea of what to expect.”

I had this game in my library for ages and ages. I can't even remember when or how I got it but it always seemed to be the game I passed on as it looked boring. Finally started it over the Xmas holiday and boy I am glad I did. I went into the game not knowing to much about it, I thought I would play for 5 mins and turn it off, maybe this is what made it good as I had no expectations of it at all apart from thinking it would be bad.

The game itself has some pretty rubbish graphics, graphics do not bother me anyway but the graphics did add to the charm the game has. The music was well done and never got on my nerves, the combat in this game is pretty bad but again that also adds to the charm I think. This game really shines with the story and the character, I do not want to give away the story although it is a pretty simple story it was told really really well. The characters were all good none of them bothered me at all, the humour was also pretty spot on.

All in all I spent about 17 hours in the game, some of this time I was AFK doing stuff so I think a more realistic length if you read everything would out you around the 14/15 hour mark of total gameplay. I have roughly 600 games on Steam and I was going through a patch where all games bored me after 5-10 mins. This one had me hooked all the way through from start to finish. I have no idea why the game does not get much love unless people all thought it would be rubbish like I first did.

The game is a very simple RPG but it was a lot of fun and I am very glad I played it in the end.

Solid 7/10 is my rating and I look forward to what this Dev team does next and I will buy it without a second thought.

AMAZING litle RPG game.
This is more based on story than combat .
It is more like story driven game with a bit of a action.
This one is the MOST relaxing RPG game i ever played.
It is completely like i said story driven no presure what so ever for combat ,there are hundreds of characters to speak to and every one have there own story to tell ,and all are long if you want to listen to ofc (BEST idea to do so )
It is just,, it's wonderful and relaxingto to read there stories.
i really recomend this game specially too ppl who like and play those story driven games
you have like easy.medium and hard difficulty ,but befoe you have like adventure it is before easy,that difficulty is based completely on story and to explore more than on combat .
This game is really like reading a good good good book filled whit adventures where you can even choose how to like end it on some characters and end some tales long lost tales and quests !
for example : You talk to a woman she tells you she lost her ring ,and she tells you the full story of the ring the firs day where she got it ,where is lost it etc ... At the end you can choose to like listen to old lady and help her get that ring back ,OR you can just fined the ring and take it for your self ,and tell you you cant fined it . OR you can like KILL her take everithing ,take the ring and robber her house and take all .It is all up to you.
Combat is easy click on enemy and kill it. ,you have many nice itams to chose and to drink ,many nice tipes of weapons to choose from ,you have crafting .which is GREAT to make HP potions etc ...
I want to recommendthis game to every one !!!
10/10

There are some things I like about this game - it's a fairly user-friendly explore and dungeon-crawl thing, but as I got more into it and more used to it, it really had limitations. There are only a couple dozen different loot items, a bare handful of potions you can create, you can only play as a male character, and the religious undertones get more and more annoying - it starts off as a couple of monks and quotes (mostly harmless, but then there are a few about intellect being bad and faith being good). And then you find a copy of the entire new testament of the bible under a bookshelf. Games really shouldn't be a showcase for the developers' religious inclinations. Bad move.

Additionally, there are many plagiarised quotes where the author has not been noted, as well as the entire Black Knight sketch from Monty Python, again, with no credit.

I'm glad I only paid $2.50 for it. But honestly, save yourself $2.50.

Driftmoon is a great little indie rpg. The combat is minimal and the graphics are nothing to be overly impressed with but Driftmoon shines in all the areas that truly matter. The game world is fun to explore and the side quests are interesting enough with some nice little puzzles woven in. The dialogue of Driftmoon is what really makes it stand out though, I found myself always cracking a smile when reading through it. The characters are great and each one leaves a lasting impact on the game. If you are looking for a nice little rpg Driftmoon is a great one to pick up and try. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.
