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.

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.

Recent Reviews:

"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%)

What are the chances of having multiplayer added at some point?

As much as I like RPGs and exploring, doing that with some friends is much cooler.

To tell you the truth, we haven't planned on that - but never say never. :)

But even with the current version of Driftmoon, you already have the possibility to at least play the mods your friends have made (and they're only one click away through the game menu). ;)

I love games like Brave Dwarves 2 deluxe and Trine 2, which are extremely colorful and a very pleasant experience. This is another one of these games - Thank you for developing this, you are too awesome, and I thank god that you exist... Keep up the infinite awesomeness.

Thanks UnholyWatermelon! We're very happy to hear you've enjoyed Driftmoon so much. :)

By the way, we've been recently working on a pretty cool new feature, which will be available after our next update - if you check back on our website ( later today, you'll see what I'm talking about. :)

Looks good but I think $10 is a much better price tag.

The game is worth every nickle of its price. It's fun to play, it's funny and it's a pretty game -- especially now with the titled camera. I played the extended beta and had a great time with the game. Will definitely buy it on final release.

I'm sure they'd get 10x the sales if they brought it down $10. Still, the game looks great. I hope that it makes it to steam greenlight :).

If you want to, you're still very welcome to use the Driftmoon game editor (we've been told it's pretty handy), and play all the mods completely free of charge. The mods are easily accessible through the main menu of the game. :)

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!
