Gavin's Quest is a retro style hack and slash indie game in which you lead our hero Gavin into Black Mountain. Black Mountain was once controlled by the dwarves who mined it for it's rich deposits of gold and other metals. The orcs though worshipped the mountain and attacked the dwarves living there. All the dwarves of the mine were slain except one who escaped. When the lone survivor returned his peers shamed him for being a coward and not staying to fight. So he kept the secret of an entrance into the mountain in his family with the hope that someday his kin would reclaim the mountain and remove the shame to his family name. Game play is very simple you take your hero into the mountain and take on the orcs that live there. You must unravel runes in order to unlock vaults that contain items and gold which will help you along the way. The items get better the deeper into the mountain but the orcs get more numerous and tougher the further in you go.
