Description

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

Awards and Reviews

"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%)
Review at fanboydestroy.com
"...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%)
Preview at Bytten
"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."
Preview at Indiegamereviewer.com
"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."
Preview at LazyAssGamer
"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."
Review at dealspwn.com
"50 000€ Sammon Tekijät Award for creativity and innovation."
