The dragon: a majestic and complex beast. How is it born? How does it live and die? Magus X. R. Quilliam's definitive work, "How to Raise a Dragon," describes all that is known about these great creatures.

In this game, you can choose every aspect of the life of a dragon, including its appearance, its abilities, and how it treats the humans around it. You can choose to become a wild guardian, a fiery tyrant, a necromantic scourge, and many other unique destinies.

I'm doing a game a month, and this is my June game! Includes an additional behavior that wasn't in the original release.

not bad at all

I liked the artwork. My only beef with this is that it was so short. The fact that you can go back and replay to see the different endings somewhat redeems the brevity of the actual game. I also enjoyed the little fact cards that popped up throughout.

Good game.

Dragon games are always a sort of favorite to me, you don't see many of them.

This is a kind of game they can pull off pixel-graphics, because of the music.

This just gives a nostalgia feeling, because it looks so old. :P

Nicely done, Gregory!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wonderfully open ended!

I tried (and barely successed) in completing every outcome. This is a game that should set an example to all other games! If only others could make great games like you!

Good, but i found a bug

Good game, you should consider making another, maybe updated graphics, and a longer story. There was a bug i found though, when the dragon roars, and your hero jumps, you get stuck in the dragons head :P you dont die, you just get stuck in his head. How do you befriend the dragon by the way?
