2# Dragon Quest Builders - 2016

Review83Score

"Dragon Quest Builders is a sandbox action RPG where your imagination is the limit! Everything plays out in real time and the world is made entirely of blocks (although it may not look that blocky) and you can use these blocks to build pretty much whatever you want. Building is easy and can be done in three steps: 1. Plan what you’re going to build! 2. Gather your resources! 3. Begin construction and create your masterpiece! There is an overarching main storyline to follow in Dragon Quest Builders so if you want a narrative to get attached to and pull you through, that’s in there too. It wouldn’t be a Dragon Quest game without one after all! Oh and there’s plenty of quirky side quests and NPCs to give you that full RPG experience, just with the additional sandbox gameplay and monsters to battle as well."

Discover new weapons and items that will help you defeat a ruthless swarm of new-and-nasty mobs. Fight or flee through canyons, swamps and – of course – mines! Any adventurer brave or foolish enough (or a bit-of-both!) to explore this blocky and beautiful world will need to come prepared. So quickly, gear up!"

Build and manage your tavern, satisfy the wandering hearts and bellies of sinners and sojourners, and, most importantly, send them out throughout the land to make known your fame, near and far. But all of this is merely your first step, as you soon attract the attention of serious political and military forces and slowly become a part of a ruthless race for power. Dare to defy your own fate in an epic campaign or lose yourself in an endless open-world mode. Build your very own tavern, hire and oversee staff, manage your supply chain and specialize your services, research new recipes and encounter a host of unconventional characters. Be smart, be resourceful, and plan ten moves ahead to become the most renowned innkeeper in the realm and one day, as sure as the rising of the sun, you will rise above your station and those who once jeered will look on in wonder.
