DLC Quest Now Available on XBLIG
What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that’s what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you’ll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing.
Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future…
– Platforming action! Coins to collect, a princess to save, a bad guy to defeat. You like that stuff, right?
– 16 different DLC packs, each providing quiet introspection on the state of the gaming industry
– 10 awardments to earn and make you feel reasonably satisified with yourself
“The irony of making a game that mocks downloadable content and releasing it in downloadable form is not lost on me,” says Ben Kane, the lone developer of Going Loud Studios. “Heck, if all goes well, I’ll jump the shark and make some DLC for DLC Quest.”
