As the user recalls Austin King, it turns out that the developers of the title were surprised the last day of development: “The day the final version was ready to go into production, I was shocked to learn that not a single person on the development team had completed the game. I was horrified!”

Of course, and taking into account the opinions of the time, this anecdote explains some of the negative points of Dragon Quest 2.
