Action (Sandbox, Action/Adventure)


Dragon Quest meets Minecraft in the open-world sandbox where you can create the tools to build your ultimate castle, restore towns to their glory and take on iconic monsters. Long ago in Alefgard a hero was said to arise to stop the Dragonlord but instead of defeating him, he joined him and Alefgard was plunged into ruin and darkness. The people, robbed of creativity, wander the ruins of their former homes, scavenging and scrounging to survive. But the goddess has chosen another hero, one with the power to rebuild that which was destroyed so long ago - and finally defeat the Dragonlord.
