Hey guys,

I'm Blackthorne from Infamous Quests/Infamous Adventures. Some of you may have played our remakes of Space Quest 2 and King's Quest III... we're a small, independent adventure game studio, comitted to making retro styled adventure games.

We've just released a demo for our first original game, Quest For Infamy - a game in which you play a more morally gray hero-type. Anyway, you can check out the totally playable demo at www.questforinfamy.com or www.infamous-quests.com - it's a mini-game unto itself, it has full music, voice.... it's fun, and it's free! Check it out, lemme know what you think.

Well I downloaded the demo. It plays in a window and to get it to a proper size I had to reduce my Screen resolution to 800X600 and now it covers most of my monitor screen.

I've been wandering around for a while and the only thing I've been able to accomplish so far is to urinate in a barrel and I guess I need a fishing pole. Maybe I'll find something else to do later.

oldman,

Don't do that to me! I almost drenched my monitor in coffee, laughing. I hope that fishing pole doesn't have anything to do with fish in a barrel. grin

Ah yes the old fish in a barrel trick. lol Actually I should have clarified. What I meant to say was that I found a fisherman that needs a fishing pole and I'm assuming that I have to find it for him.

The game plays as one would expect in that it is very much like a Kings Quest game. It appears to have a pretty dark sense of humor (which appeals to me). So far I'm enjoying the demo even if I can't accomplish anything.

My character doesn't have any particular goal to quest after so I'm probably missing something. But I will continue on in my quest to find a quest. hardwall

Aha!

Here's some hints for you-

Click to reveal..
There are three quests - three people that need something from you!

You can get the fishing pole out of the river; it's just tricky. You might try talking to, and investigating a screen where a character only shows up at dusk and night....

You do have to kill the beast in all three quests, though for different reasons!


Any other hints or questions, just ask me. I'm the Director/Writer and Producer on the project.

Sorry if my post looked like a request for help. It actually wasn't. It was meant to be a comment on my progress - mainly for oldman smile

Anyone know if this is a stand alone demo, and not for instance the first chapter or alike of the full game?

Yes, I know!

The demo is basically the first chapter of the game. There will be more added to it for the full game (All the shops and proprietors will be open and accessible, etc.) but the basic essence that kicks off the story is in the demo.

It's a taste of the world of QFI, and the start of Mr. Roehm's adventures!


And we made funding - so this baby is totally happening. We're all psyched about it!

Thanks for all the support guys! We're in our final hours now! About 19 to go, I think...

It's just been incredible. I'm so excited that there's still such passion for these kinds of games. I can't wait to work on it, and get it out the door and into the hands of well-deserving fans. I only hope that it's a great adventure for you to play! I think it will be!

I'm always excited to see the funding goals reached and you doubled that! Kudos and congrats. I hope the next 19 hours prove even more profitable.

Hey there!

Just want to thank all of you for your support over here! It means a lot to us - it's just nice to see support for adventure games.

Well, since the Kickstarter ended, as was a rousing success, We've brought on several new background artists to help out, and they've been turning out some beautiful looking classic gaming-style artwork.

Here's a little teaser pic of some of the new game art - this is by our artist, Jon Stoll. Jon's worked with Infamous Adventures for years in several capacities - he was actually the voice of the Narrator in our version of King's Quest III.

http://www.infamous-adventures.com/qfi/SwampPreview2.jpg

If you didn't get in on the Kickstarter, you can still donate to the project via PayPal and get the KS rewards. You can look into that more at our page, http://www.infamous-quests.com . There's a big button labeled "PAYPAL" that'll take you to another page that describes all the rewards you can still get and it has the link to donate.
