Slimes are basically Christmas jellies

2 mins read

It’s that time of year again! We’re counting down the days to Christmas with our own little “advent calendar” – one new game to play over the holiday season each and every day.

As the year winds down, things get really busy. We’ve got Christmas parties to attend, the end of year rush on work, and all the rest of it. But it’s also a time where we take holidays, find a moment to relax, and enjoy the company of others. This is the best chance to catch up on some key games that you might have missed from the year… or just play that multiplayer game that you’ve been waiting to get a crew together for.

Day 13: Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince

Read our review here.

This is the newest game on our little countdown: It was only released in December! But it’s also a near-perfect game for this season, and I really hope that after such a massive year of releases people don’t overlook it on account of it coming last. Something something slow and steady wins the race something something.

Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince is a game of pure joy. Yes it has a dark theme running through it (it is, after all, the story of how one of Dragon Quest’s greatest villains came to be), but it also takes place in a world filled with cute slimes, silly humour, quickly characters and wonderful, glorious colour. It’s impossible not to smile as you play this game, making it ideal for a season that should be all about smiles and laughter.
