"...the story starts off strong and gets the player involved in an intriguing adventure almost immediately. To top it all off, Driftmoon is brimming with style, character, and a great sense of humour." - I-luv-games.com
"_ 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?_" -Bytten.com
"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." -Indiegamereviewer.com

The beautiful, enchanted world of Driftmoon trembles in the shadow of a forgotten evil, for the dark King Ixal is again gathering his forces.
Hope lies in an unlikely alliance: A young man joins forces with a little firefly dreaming of stardom, a panther queen with the ego of a moon whale, and a very determined fellow who's lost everything but his bones, and still hasn't given up. Knowing nothing of the amazing adventures and the fearsome foes that await them, the party embarks on a journey like no other.

It's about the gameplay. This little game really surprised me. Looking at it, it doesn't really look all that special. In fact I would probably call the graphics "acceptable" at best. But what this game may lack in visual appeal, it more than makes up for in gameplay. This is one of those games that hooks you from the first few minutes, and keeps you on the hook until the very end. It sticks to a very simple formula, and never tries to be what it isn't. It's not an extremely long game, but you definitely get your money's worth with this little gem. It's well worth your time.
I played this in about 8 hours. It's a nice adventure games with a quirkiness that I really enjoyed. The humor was just right. Game mechanics were user friendly. I haven't had a chance to play with the mod system, but I'm glad one is available for creating your own adventures. There's even a touch of romance.
Yep, it's Notrium made into a full RPG. Yep, it's better than Notrium. If you're hesitant to grab this, go pick up Notrium for free, play it a little, Driftmoon is similar yet totally different. It's got a great feel to it too, the environments are very deep and involving, graphically and design wise. Combat is simplistic yet still enjoyable, it's fluid and fun with good pacing. I do like the survival mechanics also, along with more fun mechanics on unique items (Ghost's Boots leave ghostly footprints making it really easy to find which rooms you've been in!). Lots of humour throughout also, very funny game. Pick it up definitely if you want to sink a few hours into a great involving adventure.
An interesting fantasy style RPG where you meet several interesting characters and explore on a journey. The top down view of Driftworld offers various landscapes, landmarks and areas to explore. A nice little adventure.
