  • 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.

    Unepic may lack the technical and graphical polish of its modern contemporaries, but the plethora of customization options and lengthy questing it features are more than enough to make up for its shortcomings.

    Unepic probably won't be for everyone with its Metroidvania style and death prone areas, but once you get stuck in, it is an enjoyable experience.

    With tons of contents, an high character customization level and an hilarious geeky humor, UnEpic proves to be a solid and entertaining RPG, unluckily dragged down by nasty trial-and-error sections and complete lack of multiplayer, present on PC.

    There is an incredible mix of exploration, customization and enjoyment in Unepic that any development team would be proud of. The ironic thing about Unepic is there is no development team. It's just one guy. Francisco Téllez de Meneses is from Spain and spent two years creating Unepic in his free time. The score, coding, design...everything about Unepic is the result of one man's work and dedication.

    Despite its flawed interface, Unepic is a very enjoyable title with a ton of content.

    Ultimately, Unepic is a solid little RPG with a ton of heart. It’s playful humour is refreshing, it’s filled to the brim with content and there’s a lot of depth beneath it’s deceptively simple veneer. For those looking for a deep RPG adventure a little off the beaten track, Unepic is ready when you are.

    Because "Mighty #9" was delayed, and I heard about Unepic, I decided to take a chance on it. If your into tabletop gaming, old 2d action/rpg,Because "Mighty #9" was delayed, and I heard about Unepic, I decided to take a chance on it. If your into tabletop gaming, old 2d action/rpg, scrollers and references to that type of stuff makes you feel witty, you will probably enjoy it.

    I like it, I just am not finding the room with tons of doors as the main hub that leads to different areas to be inspiring. Or finding areas and then having to find a key, then come back to be fun. As this mechanic can having you wandering around aimlessly trying to remember where to go next. I'm still learning the game and it does seem to have a ton to do. You can also customize your abilities. There are many weapons and spells, potions and stuff you can make. But it seems to be one of those games you almost have to force yourself through the early stages, until it grows on you.

    It seems to be a game that has great potential, sadly I have too many other games I'm enjoying right now to focus on this one. So I will have to finish it later.

    1 thing I really love about the XB1 version over the PC is they toned down the language. I saw video of it on PC and every other word out of the guys mouth is profanity. Fortunately I can't remember very much profanity in the Xb1 version. And for me that is refreshing.

    For me the bottom line is if your into Tabletop RP and those types of things, you will probably enjoy this. As a barebones looking Indy game with tons of depth if you can endure long enough to scratch the surface this is a 7.

I thoroughly enjoyed my play-through of Unepic and found myself wishing it wasn't over as the final boss battle concluded. Unepic is a game that uses the comedic trope of the main character knowing he is in a "game", but it isn't at all too trope-y. The game has a fairly deep character progression system, with tons of variations in weapon abilities and exciting special weapons earned after quests. The side quests are almost too quick however, with them taking only a couple minutes, but it does keep you directed towards the main overall quests as much as it can. The menus are easy to navigate and the ability to have three separate sets of quick slots is a nice touch. Definitely worth a play-through for any RPG/Adventure/Dungeon Crawl players out there. A fresh take on the genres!
