While taking a break from playing a tabletop RPG, Daniel, an average guy from modern times, is transported to Harnakon’s Castle. Thinking that he is suffering from a hallucination, he decides that he is going to run the adventure for as long as the illusion lasts. As he explores the castle, fights the monsters within, and even casts potent magical spells, Daniel comes to realize that not everything is as it seems.
Unepic heroically combines open-world platforming gameplay with the intricacy and challenge of the RPG. Tweak Daniel’s skills to your heart’s content. Fight a bewildering variety of monsters, from the lowly goblin to the gigantic dragon, with over 100 different weapons. If forbidden magics are more your calling, then 70 spells and magical items will please even the most discriminating would-be wizard. Monsters, weapons, potions, spells, quests, pets, bosses, a giant castle all come together to make a funny story Unepic. If you love nerd-based humor and the RPG munchkin in you is strong, you'll appreciate every last bit of this charming RPG/platformer!

I've had this game for a while now and I must tell you, I frikin' love it.
It blends exploration, RPG, humour and tactical combat in a very nice way and is a blast to play. Other old-school elements involve having to make notes on the map, to have even the foggiest idea of where you should be going.
Many boss encounters also await you, each of them pretty epic in its own right.read more Giant worms? Check. Even bigger dragon? Check.
Truth be told, at such a price, the game is practically a steal and I heartily recommend it to any fan of RPGs.

This is a metroidvania game, but quite a good one in that regard. The gameplay is spot on. Awesome exploration and character development. The only flaw is that the humour is not so good, as it mostly consists on dropping references everywhere, which may not be the cup of tea for everyone.
In spite of that, the game is worth playing. I couldn't stop playing it myself after buying it. So, go ahead and get it!!

one of the best metroidvania around, funny and clever dialogues, good gameplay and simple but charming graphics. The only gripe I have is probably with the game controls, that are quite bad (not in responsiveness quite in their setup, too many buttons to make simple stuff), I suggest you to use joy2key or XPadder, because it also lacks proper gamepad support
