Many people turn to video games for their digital distraction. (See Anasasia’s review of Diablo III and my own write-up of Honey Badger Don’t Care.) DLC Quest is an entertaining video game distraction, adding a splash of old-school nostalgia with a whole lot of sarcasm and puns.
If you’ve played any modern games, then you know how some games take “DLC” (downloadable content) to an extreme. DLC Quest is a satire that pokes fun at those games by making you collect all of the coins in the game before you’re able to do anything else in the game. There are over 16 different DLC packs that you need to purchase with those collected coins. Even the game’s sound and moving capabilities are among the DLC packs that you’ll need.
To get your money out of this game, you’ll want to collect all of the coins, explore all of the areas, and talk with all of the people, all of which will only take you about an hour.
The following game trailer gives you an idea of what to expect:
DLC Quest is available for PC, Mac, and Xbox 360. Download details can be found on Going Loud Studios website.
The Bottom Line If you’re a fan of old-school 8-bit video games, and you love a side of sarcasm, then this game is definitely for you.
