Coming Out Top Pick

Dragon Quest Builder 2
12/07/2019

When the first Dragon Quest Builder was a surprise hit that we didn’t expect to work but was a lot of fun! The mix of RPG and more focused Minecraft style creation tools makes for a deep but accessible entry for both fans of the series and new comers. We are super excited to see what new features this sequel will bring.
