Awards and Reviews

"A Rare Gem (...) The presentation is perfect for the nature of the game, the text is invariably well written and worth reading. (...) But best of all in this charmingly home-made-feeling RPG are the companions and other characters. (...) And while it’s never not on the clunky side, it’s so overwhelmingly charming, and so packed with fun silliness, that it’s impossible to care. (...) 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."

"Few things in this world make me smile.(...)What is important is the latest addition to this very short list, because it also happens to be the subject of this review: Driftmoon. What sorcery is contained within the game to make it elicit the unnatural contortion of my mouth, you ask? Well, it’s a delightful blend of RPG and adventure game, full of wit and charm, it allows you to travel with a haughty royal panther, features drunk crabs and it spins a great many wonderful yarns. All in all, it is very much my cup of tea. A very nice earl grey, if you will."

"Driftmoon is a delightful, quirky and thoroughly engaging adventure role-playing game(...)This is a world where a she-wolf will engage you in conversation, a crab whose questionable swarthy seamanship is characterised by his inaccurate nautical terms. (...)it’s this touch of whimsy that really endears Driftmoon to those who play it.(...)An excellent game that will keep you entertained for weeks."
Review at www.micromart.co.uk
"...its world, characters, and experience are so charming and engaging that had it been even twice as long, I’d still want more. Nearly every detail of the game has been thoughtfully considered, from the fill-in mini-map with fast travel to the karmic results of your actions at the end of the story, resulting in a truly rewarding and personal experience. Its puzzles are interesting without being frustrating, its characters unique yet relatable, and its battle system challenging yet conquerable. It’s a world you can only fully appreciate from within, and once you do—you won’t want to leave."

"Driftmoon is nearly splitting at the seams when it comes to conversations, books, notes, and item backgrounds. (...) It really is a great experience for those who love reading a good story. (...) I had an amazing time exploring the world of Driftmoon, and was actually quite sad when I finally beat the game. I really have not enjoyed an RPG this much in quite a while, and you are hearing this from a guy who plays way too many RPGs."

"Engaging gameplay with a unique brand of humor, memorable characters and entertaining dialogue, new click-and-drag mechanic, an expansive world with various locations to choose from, choices impact the ending, good introduction for new gamers"
Review at www.indiegamemag.com
"What Driftmoon comes down to is imagination and charm. If you’re the sort of gamer that loves a game full of personality, highly imaginative characters, intelligent humour and occasional goofinees, then you’re really going to love Driftmoon."
Review at gameplayersreview.com
"With its sense of humour, rich imagination, and simple casual gameplay, Driftmoon is a breath of fresh air. It could actually be considered the perfect entry-level action-RPG to anyone new to the genre, but that would imply that it doesn't have anything to offer diehard fans and that's simply not the case. It's a refreshingly vibrant game with secrets to uncover, puns to groan at, monsters to topple, and gameplay that can be picked ip and mastered by anybody."

"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%)

"...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." (4/5)
Review at rpgwatch.com
"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)
Review at i-luv-games.com
"...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%)

"And it sucked me in – the sometimes hokey dialog, the whimsical characters, the skeletons who complain about rats nibbling on their bones- and it all made me care enough about it that I spent the time reading every dialog option, talk to as many characters as I could, and seek out every available side quest, lest I miss something interesting."

"The game delivers an eye-opening amount of classic dialogue quips and addicting gameplay in order to get this train up, over, and into the hearts of players."

"What makes Driftmoon a particularly pleasant adventure, in addition to its world mixing heroic-fantasy codes, some traces of modern and great Steampunk references, is clearly the writing of its screenplay and dialogues." Translation from French provided by reviewer.
Review at gamesidestory.com (French)
"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."
