Description

Players are talking about this game right now - find out more on Playfire.


What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.

Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future...


Key Features:

  • Two full length campaigns: the original award-winning "DLC Quest", and the brand new "Live Freemium or Die"

  • Platforming action! Coins to collect, a princess to save, a bad guy (or two) to defeat. You like that stuff, right?

  • Over 30 different DLC packs, each providing quiet introspection on the state of the gaming industry

  • Over 20 achievements to earn and make you feel reasonably satisfied with yourself

  • Online leaderboards

Funny thing that hurts.

Furrek | Jan. 8, 2015 | See all Furrek's reviews »

When you look at DLC Quest for the first time you see funny and cute platformer. It's not hard game but worth playing. There isn't much replayability once you beat it and focus on getting all achievements (if I remember well there is one for speed-running game) BUT... this game shows how nowadays games are made like. When was last time when we got triple A game without any dlc? Game without season passes? Simply a full product that allows you to play without worrying that ending is in some paid pack, some content that was deleted from the main game? I don't really mind it, since old games had add-ons too but at least, dear developers, give us something that is worth this price and isn't cut from main game. Sadly, we fallen into the trap and dlcs will haunt us forever.

Heavy-handed but amusing sendup of DLC

Lorddyran | Oct. 21, 2014 | See all Lorddyran's reviews »

The name gives you a very good idea of what to expect - it's a funny idea stretched out into a full game (albeit a short one). The idea is enough to carry it, barely, but there is nothing other than the initial impetus (and a few achievements, if you care about those) to really keep you going.

Funny little game that describes how DLC has gone too far...

If you want to spend 3 hours laughing and smiling,then DLC QUEST is perfect for you.It describes how downloadable content is today.Want to jump?DLC!Want to walk left?DLC!The game has also an expansion and since it is so cheap it is really worth it.It may be a short game but you have a lot of achievements and collectibles to collect.It is full of parodies and I really recommend it.

A Fun, if Short, Satirical Mockery of Today's Gaming Industry

PredatorDrone18 | June 15, 2014 | See all PredatorDrone18's reviews »

DLC Quest is a game based on poking fun at the Gaming Industry's recent obsession with downloadable content. In this game, you need to purchase DLC (with in-game money, of course) to unlock necessary elements of the game, including jumping and walking left. The game is casual and comical, and my only qualm with it is the length of the story. You could easily finish it within an hour, and that's if you're meandering about for a good amount of time. The game is worth its cheap price, and it will most likely draw a laugh out of anyone who picks it up.

Short and sweet

A beautiful take on all the excessive amounts of post downloadable content plaguing us today. Not very long of a game(an hour or two at most), but it gets the point across and is quite amusing. Give it a try, worth the money you were going to spend on horse armor anyway.
