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.
A very enjoyable story-oriented RPG with lots of exploration, fun, witty dialogue, and enjoyable combat challenges. The RPG elements aren't incredibly heavy, but they're not particularly light either, and there are enough skills and character development choices to make to keep things interesting.
As for the developers themselves, they're friendly and responsive, they're open-minded, and they listen incredibly well to their players' feedback -- and Driftmoon absolutely reflects their commitment to making enjoyable games. My only complaint is I'd like there to be more of it, but even that's not a real complaint because they've provided the tools to make more games using the engine, and provided an online solution to providing player-generated content... so what's not to like?
I have been a gamer for many years, after playing so many games, very few manage to impress me anymore. Well, Driftmoon was one of those games.
Many have attempted to re-create the feeling of the "good old games" but none has done it so well while managing to feel fresh too.
The game is a delight to play, everything is well made and it doesnt get boring like so many games.
I think i had a smile on my face almost all the time i played it, very well written and surprisingly well done game.
Wanted to play it for long time and finally got it on GOG charity sale (sorry).
Oh, its so freaking great!
Plot is very interesting, gameplay is rather easy and not very tiresome, albeit many situations quickly become not very easy. There is a lot of item to fond, stores to spend money, loot to be collected and plot twists to be experienced.
But there is some, maybe, weak points too:
first, some quests is kinda way too obvious, some tells you exactly that you need to do.
second, On other side, often some main-quests looks as side-ones thus making you stuck. There is easy solution - take on any quest you can find.
third, snatcher holes again..i really dont like to kill that little brave crabs, but its unavoidable if you stepped on their ground hole.
Still, overall its very great game which i gives 10\10
I love this game, the quirky and crazy characters and the fun storyline,
the silly sounding weapons, the whole thing.
This game's characters were memorable to say the least and it was easy to care what happened to them.
Probably the most engaging and fun singleplayer RPG I've played in a long time.
Driftmoon is full of charm and quality. Seven years in the making (give or take), it's full of small details and adventure-game-like puzzles mixed with good ol' fashioned RPG fun. If you don't like having 'cute' in your game, it may not appeal to you, but otherwise I'd mark this one as a 'must buy' for your collection if you are an afficianado of indie role-playing games.
