Healer’s Quest Shows That Being A Healer Ain’t Easy

… in fact, it’s the most thankless job in any RPG party. We all know you’re the one doing the heavy lifting, keeping your buddies from dying, and yet, nobody takes you serious. It certainly doesn’t help that said buddies are the worst.

But then, you’ve got to make do with the hand you’ve been dealt, and you’re stuck with the idiots for good, so better keep them healthy. The game is structured like your typical RPG – with one crucial difference: you only have direct control over the healer.

While your buddies are happily hacking away at the enemy without regard for their own well-being, you need to focus your healing spells and buffs on them. In the beginning, this can prove pretty tricky, but once you leveled up a bunch and put some points into that skill tree of yours, things are actually getting manageable without half the party dying every time. Just make sure that your wand doesn’t overheat. Yes, that’s a thing.

Healer’s Quest is full of self-referential humor that just doesn’t break the fourth wall, it tears it down and stomps on the remains. Characters are chiding the game designer, wondering what some buttons do, or complaining about various RPG tropes (“Rats and bats… how bland!”).

What I’ve played so far has been pretty funny, but then, humor is pretty subjective and I can imagine that these constant digs at RPG conventions can quickly overstay their welcome. For now, however, Healer’s Quest is a a fun romp and a clever examination of what makes your average RPG tick… or not.

You can purchase Healer’s Quest from Steam for $ 14.99. For more information, visit the game’s website or follow developer Rablo Games on Twitter.
