DLC Quest Now Available For OS X
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Going Loud Studios has announced the release of DLC Quest for OS X. Originally designed for Xbox 360, the game pokes fun at the proliferation of downloadable content for games while offering a quest to "defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl!" DLC Quest was the winner of Official Xbox Magazine's Xbox Indie Game of the Year 2011 and a finalist for Best Indie Game at the 2012 Canadian Videogame Awards.

"It's great to be able to bring DLC Quest to a portal that's so convenient for Mac gamers," says Ben Kane, the lone developer of Going Loud Studios. "It's been a long trip from Xbox to OSX, but Mac gamers are a passionate and vocal bunch. More than happy to give in to the demands for a port!"

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...

Features:

  • 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 satisfied with yourself
