The Finnish husband and wife team, Instant Kingdom, have now released the Alpha 7 update for their top-down RPG Driftmoon, which is now available to those who pre-order at its current discounted price.
Over half a year in the making, the Alpha 7 update brings a whole multitude of additions to the role-playing experience of Driftmoon. The developers are very happy with the various tweaks and refinements they have made; not least the now enhanced combat system, re-worked enemies and more dynamic feel to the monsters. Focusing on new content, we have new areas and companions:
“Among the hundreds of new things in this version, we have two new large areas (and another smaller area), a murder mystery, new enemy types, boss fights, tons of new quests, and as a whole a much more polished experience. To put it plain, there’s a lot more to play, and the bits we already had, we’ve made better.”
The companions include Velvet the Queen Panther, Stone Dwarf, Stone Giant and Stone Titan – the first of which sounds very exotic and flares our imagination somewhat.
To get access to the Alpha 7 update you will have to pre-order the full game which is currently at a 20% discount, sitting pretty at €11.99. To generate your interest, please find a summary of the game below:
“Driftmoon is a roleplaying game that tells the story of the Pendant of Life, and how it was reforged. It is also a tale about how Robert lost everything but his bones, but that didn’t stop him. And it is a story about the little firefly who wanted to be a big star, but was stuck in a crypt.”
If you have already pre-ordered Driftmoon then you will be able to play the new version by simply starting up the game.
