Heard about a game coming to Steam via Greenlight called DLC Quest. DLC Quest is a satiric game that sends up the recently trend to making more game content available as DLC. From the Steam Greenlight page:

"What happens when DLC practices go too far? An indie developer makes a game that mocks the industry and its foibles, that's what! Defeat the bad guy, save the world and get the girl! But first you'll need to find coins to buy DLC to enable animation, sound and even pausing. Thankfully this is just satire and all the DLC is purchased with in-game coins. But consider it a cautionary tale for the future..."

Pausing as DLC is very funny. That said, I sort of wonder if we will get to the point where features we take for granted become DLC, like the games proper ending?

Looks like DLC Quest allows you to turn on the features by collecting coins so you don't really have to pay to unlock the features. Hopefully this gets Greenlit!

Go, go, vote, vote, click, cick!

I remember watching someone play this game on youtube. It was really funny because you literally have to buy EVERYTHING in the game. The game has a few jokes about certain game's dlc like the horse armor for oblivion. It has a good humor to it which I liked. I will definitely vote for this to be greenlit

I am super glad this came to Steam. I can't recommend this game enough, as it isn't afraid the poke fun at EVERYTHING (The dark world?! Too funny!)

Yeah, it's also super cheap on Steam right now too!

And cheap is good!

Not bad as far as it goes, but it's less of a game than it is a joke delivered in game format. There's a free game on Kongregate called "Upgrade Complete" that covers a lot of the same ground. I don't regret spending $2.50 on it, but if I'd spent $6 I think I'd honestly be a little miffed.
