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.

Loved the game!

As did my girlfriend, although she wasn't too good at the platforming part.

Nice simple idea, and , I dunno, for some reason a very feel-good game. I loved the notes about dragons and heros along the way, and the way in which you could choose how to interact with the town and its people. Heh, when I was really nice to everyone, they burned down the gallows. End capital punishment!

One slight disappointment. There are only 4 (I think) end texts for the dragon. It would be much more rewarding to have one for each of the dragon types, eg fertile or fiery scourge, for example.

Anyway, great concept, good gameplay and fantastic replayability for such a short game. Loved it!

What the?

What was this about again? Oh, dragons. Okay. Well, I kind of liked it.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


This game was pretty good. I didn't mind the graphics at all, it made it seem retro.
The only thing is that I wish it was longer. Besides that good game.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great game!

Wish it was longer. I don't even care that it was pixalated, because it remids me of when I was a kid and played games like these on the good old SNES, NES, Atari, etc. Excellent story too!
