Healer’s Quest, a Management RPG in which you play solely as the healer of a crappy team of adventurers, has gotten an extended playable demo. The game is widely inspired by multiplayer online games and makes fun of situations which commonly arise in them. Your allies are suicidal n00bs and you can expect them to rush head first in desperate combats, then blame you if you let them die. You can watch the trailer for Healer’s Quest below, as well as a new “best moments” trailer.
As you solely control the healer, your goal during the frantic real-time combatswill be to manage several resources (allies’ health, mana, heat gauge, spells, equipment, upgrades, …) to ensure victory for your team. You will have to master 18 different spells, all widely customizable using skill trees, and learn to deal with numerous enemies, bosses and abnormal states. The game comes with advanced character customization options and even asks you to choose your karma : Good, Evil or Victim. Each karma leads to completely different in-game dialogs and karma powers.
The game is set to have a number of features, including:
- Unique and colored hand-painted graphical style
- Healer-focused gameplay
- Choose your karma : Good, Evil or Victim
- Find loot and collect 100 unique items
- Use mind-blowing skill trees to customize your spells
Healer’s Quest’s Kickstarter campaign is currently running, and will end on Friday the 6th of May. You can download an extended playable demo here or on the Kickstarter page of the game. Pablo Coma, the developer of the game, is a thirty-ish year old game developer and music composer from Belgium. He developed Healer’s Quest 100% on his own, after work hours and without any funding so far, aside from the current Kickstarter campaign. The game is currently set to be released at some point in the third quarter of this year.
