The beautiful, enchanted world of Driftmoon trembles in the shadow of a forgotten evil, for the dark King Ixal is again gathering his forces.

Hope lies in an unlikely alliance: A young man joins forces with a little firefly dreaming of stardom, a panther queen with the ego of a moon whale, and a very determined fellow who's lost everything but his bones, and still hasn't given up. Knowing nothing of the amazing adventures and the fearsome foes that await them, the party embarks on a journey like no other.

Driftmoon is an adventure-roleplaying game, full of exploration, smiles and surprises, captivating stories and quests, charming characters, and countless delightful details.

Driftmoon, our "charmingly quirky", and "absolutely brilliant" adventure role-playing game (as some have called it), is now officially released after only seven years of development time. Seriously, I'm not kidding you, it's complete now! First of all, a heartfelt thank you to all of our preorderers and supporters, we wouldn't be here without you!

Such a grand occasion calls for some celebration, so ta-daa: Up until the 5th of March, Driftmoon goes for just 11.99$/€!

Desura Digital Distribution

The last hope of an enchanted world lies in an unlikely alliance: a hyperactive firefly, a queen panther with a whale-sized ego, and a fellow who's lost all but his bones. They'll take you on a journey like no other, full of amazing adventures, smiles and surprises, fantastic discoveries, wonderful stories, and fearsome foes!

Soundtrack by Gareth Meek also available.

"Driftmoon reminds of so much of what I loved about games when I was younger. The adventure, the story, the fun. It’s pure entertainment and a joy to play through." (9/10)

"'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." (4/5)

"Driftmoon works so well because all the elements blend together like a good stew where each ingredient is cooked perfectly and there's more depth to be found as you reach the bottom of the bowl." (95%)

"Everyone who likes classic role-playing games, must play Driftmoon. A wonderful rpg with many great Features and a fantastic world. Buy it!" Translation from German provided by reviewer.
Driftmoon Review at

"...a delightful touch of whimsey and there's plenty of humour to be found here. How many other games would have the deadly Hoe of Doom as an early weapon? Or such wonderfully ordinary conversations with undead skeletons?" (96%)

Driftmoon was the reason I stopped playing Legend of Grimrock.
Ok the Grimrock Mods ;-).
I like your game a lot, decent graphics, great sounds
and a pinch of green sa.. no black humour every now and then.
Even my 4 yr old son loves watching it!

best regards, Joe

I just finished the game, and I loved it. Thank you for making this game with such indepth characters and a pulling story line. Sometimes, when I beat a game, there is aways a part of me that feels like the story is unfinished; A feeling I did not get with this game. It's well worth the purchase and play time!

Awesome to hear you've enjoyed Driftmoon so much! Thanks for telling us, Ladyravenskye! :)

If you're still eager for more adventure, you can go ahead and give some of the mods a go. They're just one click away through the main menu. ;)

Only played couple hours, but so far the game is awesome, im really impressed.
Rich gameplay, good writing and lots of imagination are rarely on the ingredients list of games, because these ingredients are so rare and hard to use.
Apparently Instant Kingdom found a secret stash of these ingredients and put them to great use.

I bought this game recently, and it is truly awesome.
I had been searching for a really long time for a well-produced old school RPG which still brings some novelty to the genre. Driftmoon definitely fills these requirements and is full of humour!
