A great sendup of tabeltop RPGs and a great game by itselfLorddyran | Sept. 25, 2014 | See all Lorddyran's reviews »
When I was a kid, my older brother used to play D&D, but I never got to join in. I would watch him be a dungeonmaster and imagine myself in his shoes; I would see his friends playing the party through the dungeon and imagine myself in the hero roles. It seemed impossibly glamorous to a young kid with stars in his eyes.
As I got old enough to actually do these things, I had a few occasions in real life, but the reality of it always fell a little short of those wonderful imaginings - especially since I had to choose player or dungeonmaster, and then I had to deal with all those other inconvenient players.
With this game, though, I get to play both roles - the DM and the players - and it almost approaches what I wanted all those years ago. Add in the fact that the story is well-written and the amusing pokes at D&D culture, and you have yourself a rare gem of a game.
Awesome and fun game.Suppression555 | Sept. 23, 2014 | See all Suppression555's reviews »
I really loved the game. It took me 20 hours to complete, which includes a restart after some hours when I had unlocked more interesting characters than the starting lineup. I'll have to go back and finish it with the ones I missed in the future.
The game was a lot of fun, and definitely worth the asking price. It made me smile many times, what with all those wacky references to other games and developers. I bought the Deluxe edition to support the developers as much as I could, as I had researched the game prior to buying it, and I'm glad I did. The extra gold you start with is nice (but doesn't provide any sort of advantage other than when you get a full lineup but let's face it, it doesn't matter).
If you're on the fence, then just go ahead and spend the 10 euro or whatever the price is in your region. It's a fun throwback to the golden ages of gaming, and it's just well done through and through. I doubt very much you'll regret it. Don't worry about the ingame cash shop. I never used it, and NEVER had a reason to. You earn redicilous amounts of gold in this game just doing the main quest line, and the extra gold you can buy for real money is so useless, I'm puzzled why they added it at all.
Dungeon and Dragons has never looked better.StupidMarioBros | July 3, 2014 | See all StupidMarioBros's reviews »
This is one of the strangest ideas for a video ive seen this year. If anyone proposed the idea of a pixelated game of dungeons and dragons brought to life in a rpg form where you control how many enemies are in it, I would probably walk away slowly and report you to a mental hospital, but this game executes it so well that I'm in love with this game. Not only is the game have VEEEEEEERY extensive content to enjoy, but has a unique idea where you can customize the actual room you're in and shift from the real world to the D and D world. I reccomend for RPG lovers, or people who actually play D&D. Good game.

This is a great indie rpg to not be missed, it brings together pop culture references, fun combat, interesting and unique story and a realistic feeling game of D&D. If you love turn based RPG's then I seriously recommend this to you!
DnD sort of Experiencedrakso | Dec. 18, 2013 | See all drakso's reviews »
A small treat for all the DnD fans out there, and for all the common folks out there, its a simulation of an RPG board game basically. You roll dice for pretty much everything, access to everything can be found at the dungeon master and there are even 5 seats witch your characters are sitting in trough out the game. The art style and music are very well suited for the game. You might want to give it a chance because once you get a handle of it you are gonna spend a lot of time enjoying your self. The game also has many gaming references and a nice sense of humor. For that price its really an awesome experience.
