  • Summary: Unepic is a combination of platforming and role playing games. There are many hilarious references throughout the game. The game takes place in Harnakon, a huge medieval castle.

    It is set in the hardcore NES Style, yet refined with the latest features. This makes Unepic a very unique game.

    Among surreal situations and a strong quotations, Unepic is distinguished by the fact of being a game that does not take itself too seriously.

    A fresh and lovely product, which mixes RPG and humor.

    UnEpic delivers an unoriginal but well written story, packed with some funny lines; a solid action platform gameplay, full of back tracking and respawn; and some hardcore RPG elements. The end result is a game that hardly lends itself to interpretations: you either love it or hate it.

    With over twenty hours of content and a paltry $8 price tag, Unepic is worth experiencing, even if to re-explore a childhood fantasy.

    Don't let the name fool you: Unepic is huge, but whether players will want to see the quest to its ends is another matter. [Apr 2012, p.66]

Instead of putting out the lights with a whip though, you are trying to light each one in each room (and no whip is involved). The game is a 2D platformer wherein you work yourself through a maze of rooms fighting enemies, earning XP and picking up objects. After working yourself through a particular part of the map and fighting a boss you'll find the key to a new part of the map with new rooms to explore and new enemies to fight. The game has a strong RPG element in it, which is the thing that ties the whole game together and makes it so addictive. When you earn enough XP you get to distribute points in a number of skills. When the game begins you start with a number of weapon skills (which determine the level of the weapon you can wield), a skill that determines your hit points, a skill that determines the level of potions you can brew, and a skill that determines the level of armor you can wear. Later in the game, after completing certain quests, you learn the ability to cast certain spells (e.g. you learn the skill to cast fire spells). The spells are powerful but require ingredients which are found by defeating certain enemies. The story is intentionally cliche and is told with a good helping of humor through the eyes of the protagonist (a Dungeons & Dragons player who is whisked away to the evil castle the game is set in). It is also full of references to games and movies which are littered throughout the dialog. All in all a great, very addictive game which I can definitely recommend. Expand

    As a gamer that loves the old fun and simple style its just perfect, and with the D&D like play and jokes this became the best game i've played ever, it's not the best history of course but it is the funniest.

    If you are a fan of the RPG genre, this is a must.

    I play Unepic since it came with in an Humble Bundle Indie Pack over a year ago.
    The Gameplay is the best to get if u like dungeon adventure quest games. I love the graphics, all the persons & ghosts & monsters, the quests and all the great humor. Gameplay is even after months of abstinences no problem to get in again & funny fine to stay on. It´s just a big gem One of the 10 best games I play (ed) ever!

I've played around 200 hours at this point and I can honestly say this game is a ton of fun. The layout is a little confusing at first, but the controls are incredibly simple and within 30 minutes of play you'll have the hang of it. The aspect of this game that really shines through for me is the story. I've seen a lot of negative comments about the story and the humour used in the game, but if you're a gamer you'll appreciate the references that pop out of every corner. The story can be summed up as "if you were teleported into an RPG, how would you react?" The protagonist is a gamer who wakes up in an RPG game and takes it totally in stride, giving everything he comes across names based on video games he's played in the past (he spends the entire game calling the dark spirit following you around "Zeratul" for those SC nerds out there.)

    Absolutely recommend, huge replay value and it includes multiplayer for those who are interested in coop play.

The combat is soA tedious console port that tries to make light of the cliche fantasy and nerd culture but just comes across as un-inventive. The combat is so stiff and boxy that most of the time you end up just hurting yourself on the opponent. You can't aim bows, jumping and moving at the same time is a joke and the controls are a mess until you tweak them to 180 from what the developers set. If this game had controls like Terraria it would actually be quite amazing. I think the steam early access business model is just another Kickstarter wannabe and this game is a good indicator of what you will get on there. Unpolished, featureless games that would never make it to an actual release date but instead gain funding through promises and flashy demo videos. Expand
