Welcome to game proposals, where we outline a video game we’d like to see developed and make a case for its release. Developers take note!
Deltora Quest is the collective name of three series of short novels by Australian author Emily Rodda. The first series contains eight books; the second has three; and the third is comprised of four.
What’s striking about Deltora Quest is that its structure is very much that of a video game. It has the expansive world of Deltora, complete with maps, and even its own very distinctive and unique art-direction thanks to the cover illustrations of Marc McBride.
The party of Lief, Barda and Jasmine embark on three separate quests, where in each book they travel through towns, meet new races, conquer a dungeon, defeat a boss and obtain a collectible.
