Driftmoon is an adventure-rpg game by Instant Kingdom that features entertaining exploration as well as a charming story.

Developed over the course of seven years by a husband and wife team, Driftmoon is a game that brings a much needed break from the typical “dark and foreboding” kind of roleplaying games that are all too commonly found on our harddrives. It’s a game that is not only meant to be played, but its also meant to be enjoyed. Playing as a young boy shoved into a well by his hysterical mother, you awaken from the depths of the well only to emerge onto the surface to discover that all of the townsfolk have been turned to stone. With no recollection of the event thanks to your mother’s concussive actions, you try to piece together what happened with the help of a few unlikely companions. Presented from a top-down isometric view, you then explore the world of Driftmoon uncovering the secrets that the land has to offer.

The locations in Driftmoon are as colorful as the characters you meet.

Driftmoon’s light-hearted demeanor is definitely one of its key strengths, as I personally found the game to play much like a really good storybook. The game is simply written in a way that makes you happy whenever you come across a friendly face, or a new unexpected ally. The colorful characters and quirky dialogue propels the story forward in an unpredictable way, which keeps you smiling as you never quite know whats coming around the corner. The world’s charm is evident in every interaction, even when solving the occasional puzzle with the help of an unconventional ally. Driftmoon has a heartwarming feeling to it that you almost never see in games anymore, and is certainly an adventure that people from all walks of life can experience and enjoy.
