Reviews and Problems with Driftmoon

  • Summary: Development on Driftmoon began seven years ago. Seven years! For some context, this game began development when there was only one New Super Mario Bros. and Saints Row game. It is anybody's guess as to the quality of a game with such a long development cycle once it finally releases. It could be great or it could be utter crap . Driftmoon is a classic RPG, reminiscent of games like Dungeon Siege or Dragon Age: Origins .

Driftmoon Review

16 August 2013
  • Summary: It has been kind of hard to write about Driftmoon.  This is the kind of game you should experience for yourself, because stories and anecdotes cannot properly do it justice.  It might not be the most beautiful game out there and its combat engine is functional at best, but it wins you over by sheer force of personality.  I definitely liked what it tried to achieve, and I enjoyed almost every bit of the journey.

Driftmoon Review

1 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Driftmoon is a throwback to role-playing games from years gone by, with such simple visuals and animations that you could be forgiven for assuming the game were a decade old. But it doesn't take long to look past the dated presentation and discover Driftmoon's ample humor and heart, and to fall in love with the memorable characters and excellent writing that make the short visit to these lands such a pleasant one.
  • Pros: Exceptional writing and great humor, Interesting and memorable characters, Full mod support
  • Cons: Combat is so easy and simple that it grows tedious

  • Summary: After seven years in development, Driftmoon is finally open to explorers.
  • Pros: An immersive and enchanting world with humorous and likable characters. Rewarding side quests, dialogue options, and karma system. Variety of mods available to enhance and extend replay value. Beautiful, selective soundtrack that fades in and out with the action.
  • Cons: Considering the epic world and backstory presented, game feels a little short. Characters are too quick to provide guidance on puzzles. Item organization a bit messy, without a separate area for equipment.

Driftmoon Review | Labour Of Love

26 February 2013
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Driftmoon is a seven-year labour of love, and it shows. Irrepressible personality, hilarious dialogue, clever puzzles and deceptively deep gameplay overshadow the basic visuals, while comprehensive mod tools will allow players to support this charming indie adventure for months to come.
  • Pros: Memorable characters brought to life with witty and humorous dialogue, Deceptively deep combat, crafting and puzzles, Comprehensive mod tools, editing suite and effortless content sharing
  • Cons: Primitive visuals and boxy level geometry, Some clumsy and cliched conversation moments, Can feel dated at times (but often in a good way)

TEST. Driftmoon

Game Blog
19 March 2013
  • Summary: Le prosélytisme ce n’est pas super agréable, mais on ne va pas se fâcher pour si peu. Surtout que Driftmoon est un petit RPG/Aventure super sympa et drôle, avec une prise en main et des idées de gameplay qui pourrait (devrait même) inspirer les plus grands. N’attendez pas une grande difficulté en revanche. Amen.
  • Pros: Agréable à jouer, Plein d'humour, De bonnes idées de gameplay, Plusieurs fins
  • Cons: Oui, bon, la Bible, hein..., Happy end exagéré, Bruitages un peu fatiguants
