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...
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

Welcome to the world of DLC Quest. This is a simple indie platformer which is a satire to DLC and also telling on what can happen if DLC goes too far.
Yes, this game is about 50 minutes long, but saying that's just the first campaign (they added another campaign in an update) and the game is only $2 and it still was worth my time and money, you should check this out.

DLC Quest is a very original game, due to its humour. It has a lot of references for other games with so many DLC's and some of them quite useless. The graphics is nice, characters are awesome and here I also include the horse. The gameplay is OK and the achievements are quite challenging, making you to play the game more than once. The dialogues are funny and cute and you get attached to the characters. I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of zombie sheep. The music is not very memorable, but it is good enough. I will give it a 9.
Well worth the time and the pricebmmmd | Jan. 6, 2014 | See all bmmmd's reviews »
Picked this up a few days ago for $0.75 not expecting much but it proved to be way more value than I imagined.
The gameplay is mostly classic platformer with a few modern references, pretty easy in the first campaign but somewhat challenging in the second. Furthermore it is really polished for a game this cheap, it really surprised me in a good way that the gameplay was well thought, detailed and bug free.
Where the game really shines is the humor and the myriad of references to various modern games, most obvious ones being Oblivion and the infamous Horse Armor DLC to the character DLC in the Mass Effect series.
Awesome game!friendbear70 | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all friendbear70's reviews »
This game is pretty cool. Its simple, it has what every great game should have: DLCS! It is funny to play and incredibly enjoyable. You will not be disappointed. Unless you are one of those people who hate fun.
Pros: Great game, great concept, great soundtrack, great everything.
Cons: In the second episode, it becomes less fun. It becomes more confusing and lame.
I love the game a lot. But after I got to the 2nd "episode" things got a bit boring for me. I did not like how they incorporated checkpoints or the fact they added a bunch of characters. I did however like their creative ways of thinking. This game will be like no other platformer game you have ever played. This game is cheap, but WORTH IT!

The entire game is a parody of most games nowadays, poking fun of the hundreds of achievements and useless DLC. I enjoyed it and had a few laughs at the humorous commentary, greatly paired with a simple concept. It's just $0.98 at the moment and can go down to $0.74 with the 25% off code. I think it's worth a try.
