This is what everyone is talking about. It's an epic RPG/fantasy (you know that, though =)) in which you must destroy the ancient one Seth. You have to play this. There would be no DMODS without it. Back to the review though,
Graphics- very good, they possess much quality. I doubt I could do half as good with 3D Canvas. Gameplay- good gameplay, from the Dead Dragon Carcass Cult (Ah, the memories {tears come to AmoebaLord's eyes}) to the famine in Winderemere to killing your first pig. So many memories . . So download this classic, and when you beat it, download POTA, and when you beat that, download FIAT, and when you beat that, download FB3, LOT...
Sorry I got carried away by old memories.
Music- Excellent, truly excellent! Several other D-
MODS use this music. They spent a lot of time and money on these, and it shows.
Difficulty- This game is exactly the type of difficulty I prefer. Enemies aren't impossible to kill, but have the preferred amount of HP. The few puzzles in this game don't take triginomatry to solve, but you have to think a few seconds to solve them.
Plot- This is a good plot, but there are a couple ways they could've made it better.
Glitches/Bugs- There are very few of these. The biggest bug I came across was when I started the game, Dink could only walk in a certain path. I installed it again though, and no more bugs! So if you find a major bug, try installing it again. If it isn't fixed, you're smart, fix it on DinkEdit!
Engine- This is a BIG reason to download this. (Without it you can't play D-MODS.) Again, it's a great engine. If you don't understand it, don't worry. When I started out, it looked completely foreign to me. All you need is a tutorial. The engine is easy to use, and has dozens of adjustable fields. Without it, it wouldn't of inspired me to start Comercial Windows Game Programming.
Overall- It's a great game, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! d:
