SteamWorld Quest released at a launch exclusive for Switch on April 25th, 2019! It takes the SteamWorld style and applies it to a whole new game genre! Card-based RPG action!
How are you all enjoying it? I'm having a lot of fun! The way the card mechanic works is pretty stellar. Early cards aren't useless later because they grow as you grow. You don't have to ever worry about not wanting to use a card and thus save it for later. You can tailor your deck to your play style and to what the battle calls for. Excellent!
Some days back I completed this game 95% of the way. I didn't go back and finish all the challenge matches. Just some.
I thought it was a nice take on an RPG from Image & Form. Not too deep of a story but enough to be interesting/keep the plot moving. The card mechanic was enjoyable too, though I found pretty easily which set worked best for me. I didn't experiment enough but I guess that's on me.
What did you all think? I know I'm not the only one who played this... right?
Image & Form has become a company I will buy a new game from, sight unseen. I've found Quest frankly a bit dull though, at least in the story and level design department. It looks great, it has some good mechanics and seems to be influenced by all the right things (noticeably Baten Kaitos). But it's a bit less compelling than I expected.
