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
DLC Quest is a 2d platformer that makes fun of DLC's culture. You cannot do much in this game without grinding some coins and then purchasing some very basic abilities, like jumping, attack, and even the character animation or the pause menu. The game is very short (even with the expansion "Live Freemium or Die"), is possible to finish it within an hour. Also, it's a very simple platform game, the graphics and the music are ok. The best in this game is its jokes about buying DLC to unlock very basic content. Still it's worth to play.
One of the most amazing indie platformers I've seen yet. The mechanic of this game is simple and funny at the same time. If you want about 2-3 hours pure fun and are person who will always try to find everything this is your game. As i said it's rather short, but it's certainly worth its money.
DLC Quest isn't so much a game, as it is a way to mock the worst aspects of DLC as a business practice. Not that gamers need this pointed out, of course, but its entire charm rests on the shared antipathy. It's not so much fun as it is clever, and the simplistic level design and arbitrary tasks are forgivable in that light. It's a short sharp distraction with a few laughs at the expense of the game industry. Worth picking up in a sale.
This is a short, but fun game essentially mocking the modern game industry about how game companies make you buy DLC to unlock features that should already be apart of the game or was advertised already in the game. As long as you go into the game expecting a joke game, it can be pretty enjoyable. For an indie game of this price, I would definitely give it a try.
This game is cool for its humor, its story, and its DLC! But be warned even though this is fun it is still short and I mean you could beat both stories in about an hour. It is still fun none the less. I can't really judge its graphics because it is a pixelated, 2D game. I would definitely tell my peeps, bros, colleagues, mates, and friends about this game. Especially the ones that like fast, short, and humorous games like this. Besides who wouldn't want to buy a DLC that gives everyone Canadian accents or just gives your horse armor.
