Driftmoon - Alpha Review @ LazyAssGamer
LazyAssGamer has reviewed one of the Driftmoon Alpha releases, awarding a score of 9/10 despite the game not being finished:
I found the game to be surprisingly well structured and rich in information. Going in I expected sub-par story bits to litter this hack-and-slash adventure. Instead, I found it to be quite an engrossing tale. What makes this story so great is how it infuses detailed information with humor. For example, of the many books and notes you pick up, one of my favourites was a note from the mayor of Northropp which orders that the “Gardening Tool of Doom” be locked up. It’s not laugh-out-loud funny, but it does a great job of keeping players very entertained while exploring through the game. Although some portions of the game can get a little wordy for those who are impatient, those who can stick with it will find lots of back story. The vast amount of backstory and little details come together well and really show that writing was a focus of the game’s creators. With enough lore to base a novel, the game is more than prepared to handle any players that may want to invest more than the average completion time.
