Generations ago, the realm of Alefgard was plunged into darkness by the terrible and treacherous Dragonlord, ruler of all monsters. Mankind was robbed of the power to build and forced to wander the ruins of their former home, scrounging and scavenging in the dust to survive. Now it’s up to you, a Legendary Builder chosen by the Goddess herself, to return the power of creation to the people and rebuild Alefgard.

Dragon Quest Builders is both a fantastic game and a testament to the incredible versatility of the Dragon Quest series. It is a culmination of everything that the series is known and loved for, combined with the strongest elements of Minecraft. With solid gameplay, a gorgeous world, and genuinely funny writing, even those unfamiliar with the franchise can easily find something here to enjoy.
Dragon Quest Builders takes Minecraft‘s foundation and adds dozens of levels upon it. The implementation of story and crafting all in the Dragon Quest universe worked wonderfully (to my surprise). The developers made sure to make building complex structures easy and-with the use of acquired specials-gathering items just as easy.
Dragon Quest takes an established franchise and throws in a bit of Minecraft, some elements of Dark Cloud, and even some Legend of Zelda. It takes inspiration from these but manages to create its own unique game in the process. Building is the core component, along with crafting and resource management.
