What the critics are saying:
"Driftmoon works so well because all the elements blend together like a good stew where each ingredient is cooked perfectly and there's more depth to be found as you reach the bottom of the bowl." 95% (fanboydestroy.com)
"...it's been a long time since I enjoyed a game as much as this one. Think Quest for Glory and Frayed Knights mixed and blended together and you'll have some idea of what to expect." 4/5 (rpgwatch.com)
"Driftmoon reminds of so much of what I loved about games when I was younger. The adventure, the story, the fun. It’s pure entertainment and a joy to play through." 9/10 (i-luv-games.com)
"...a 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?" 96% (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."
