Before the likes of Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and The Witcher arrived on the scene, RPG fans got their dungeon-crawling fix with games like Lands of Lore, Eye of the Beholder, and Dungeon Master.
These grid-based first-person RPGs featured relatively crude 2D visuals but delivered a level of immersive gameplay that had never been seen before. QuestLord is an affectionate tribute to these titles, delivering solid gameplay and authentic, pixel-heavy visuals to boot.
Before you begin your epic quest to save the realm, you select which race you wish to be - an act that decides the initial statistics of your character. Once you're into the game proper you can explore various towns and converse with a wide range of non-player characters, many of which will offer items for sale or ask you to embark on various quests.
Pixel heavy and packed with loving nods to previous RPG gems, QuestLord is an adventure worth embarking on, as long as you can put up with occasional repetition and some low-fi visuals
