Welcome to my Steam Greenlight Spotlight, the place where each week I throw the spotlight on a game currently in the Steam Greenlight process that I think looks good.
In the spotlight this week is… Healer’s Quest
What is Healer’s Quest?
Healer’s Quest is a lighthearted RPG from Rablo Games in which you are cast in the role of a healer of a ragtag mob of adventurers who are described as “unfocused, greedy and highly amoral.” Brilliant. It sounds like you will have your work cut out for you as healer because the ragtag mob of adventurers you’re with aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed, they’re the kind who run head-first into combat and traps. Yay!
The trailer starts off by asking “ever teamed up with crappy allies?” which is something I think most people have experienced at least once if they play multiplayer games, especially online ones, before introducing characters like Tanky the knight, who falls over swinging his sword, and Grumpy the barbarian. Both good names.
The art style, a hand-painted graphical style, as well as the character designs fit perfectly with the lighthearted and comedic nature of the game. It’s bright, it’s colourful, it’s easy to tell which character is which, all of which is very nice.
There are 100 unique items to collect as part of your loot, 18 different spells to master which are going to be highly customisable thanks to skill trees, and different dialogue options depending on the karma you choose for your healer at the start of the game (good, evil, or victim).
Aside from the lighthearted humour aspect of the game I like the idea of a game based around the idea of being the healer of a group of adventurers and having to keep the party alive, it’ll be like playing as the Medic on Team Fortress 2, more so when you consider you are the healer to a team of a bunch of idiots who just run head-first into things.
There is a playable demo available which I plan to check out over the weekend and give my thoughts on so check back for that.
Check out the trailer (below) and remember to go to their Greenlight page (link below), I think it looks like it could be a fun little RPG what about you? Let me know in the comments below.
