Game Description

Daniel was just an average guy. He was a great videogame player, a big fan of sci-fi movies, and a novice RPG player. In the midst of an RPG, he was teleported to a castle. At first, Daniel believed that he was having a massive hallucination. Eager to keep playing within the RPG to create his own adventure, he decides to go along for te ride until his delirium comes to an end.

Once inside the castle, Daniel is inhabited by a mysterious shadow. This dark spirit can communicate with Daniel, but not control him. The shadow has a simple goal: to escape from the prison of Daniel's body. There's a catch, though-- the dark spirit can only escape if Daniel perishes.

Struggling against enemies in the castle, with the dark spirit attempting to murder him at every turn. Daniel finally discovers his goal: to kill Harnakon, the master of the castle, and free the Pure-Spirits who are trapped within. While the stage seems set for a typical role-playing adventure, Daniel will soon discover that everything is not what it seems...

Price History



Unepic (Nintendo Switch) Review via Cubed3

Unepic is deliciously old-school and thoroughly addictive, but it feels like a snapshot of an earlier time and, as such, those who have never experienced the games that this is a love-letter to may find it hard to get on with. The writing is very hit and miss - mostly miss - but it tells a decent enough story, until its final act and the horrible endings… Ultimately, a fun but flawed experience.


Unepic is a Metroidvania game done right. It does for classic games of that genre what Stardew Valley did for farming simulator games. This game feels like it was designed by people who spent years playing Dungeons and Dragons while dreaming up the perfect game. It has years of love for the genre poured into it, and it obviously seeps from every pore. Most of the important elements of RPGs are present here: quests, a great story, a large variety of weapons with different effects, a huge number of potions, dozens of spells, character classes, a huge stat sheet, being able to invest in desired stats when levelling up among many other features. There are scenarios in which you will have to make choices which will determine if you live or die. You come across a room full of gold; do you risk taking the gold or leave it behind? Do you drink the Potion of Trap Visibility to see all of the traps in the room, or do you save it and inch your way forward uncertainly to help put a restless ghost's soul to peace? There are so many different scenarios in this game that you will never bore of it. This game is masterfully put together with great visuals, catchy music, a story that never stops, a huge world, equipment that never fails to impress, fun gameplay, and it is all put together at an incredible price. This is by far the best $10 game I have ever played, and I feel like it is one I will come back to for years. I am going to give this game my highest rating for a review so far. I give it a 9.5/10. I absolutely recommend this game to anyone. It is truly a wonderful experience.

Review: Unepic (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

If you threw a party and invited all of the adventure/roleplaying games along, Unepic would be the one in the center of the room blurting out jokes, laughing too loudly and making sarcastic comments about all of the other guests.

Review: Unepic (Nintendo Switch via Pure Nintendo

In many ways, it's in the upper echelon of indies. It has a level of professional polish that can't be overlooked.

UnEpic Review via Nintendo Insider

On a system that already has its fair share of Metroidvania style outings, UnEpic fails to deliver the same level of adventure and excitement as its competition. Truth is UnEpic feels… well exactly that delivering a fairly ordinary take on the genre and one that plays totally fine but lacks the ingenuity and satisfaction you want.

As a fan of the more SOTN-style Metroidvanias, I was very excited to try this game. I had not played it on any previous platform, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Unfortunately, it didn't do much for me. It definitely ticks many of those SOTN boxes, but I suppose it just wasn't for me.
