Each time I see the charming classic Druaga and Quest of Ki official art, I keep thinking one day I’ll do a deep dive and play every game in the franchise and become the biggest Druaga fan, but there’s always something pulling me back.
(i can’t upload images for some reason but rest assured i had a bunch ready)
There’s something super charming to me about the universe and Namco’s appreciation for it and even how they tried to reboot and revitalize the franchise in the PS2 era with a Mysterious Dungeon spinoff and anime, both of which I know nothing about but they look good?
Something something namco x capcom
There’s the Druaga homage minigame in Mr Driller Drill Land:
Ki and Gilgamesh showed up in some Pac Man mobage too where they got nice redesigns?? https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/towerofdruaga/images/c/c2/Pac-Man_Monsters_-_Ki.png/revision/latest?cb=20190220200328
Also a Twitter mutual is developing a fan classic Namco fighter that stars Gil and Ki with great signature moves. I need to find the link to share here later.
Convince me in this thread to become a big Drauga super fan. Maybe it’ll become my classic franchise of the year, like how Columns was the 2019 game of the year for me.
