Hah.  Funny that it still pops up. At least they credited me.  I didn't know about it, though, until I read this!

BT & Klytos _did_ think of everything!

Ahem...and all of the rest of us who nitpicked every aspect of the game during wave after wave of alpha and beta testing.  Pretty sure a lot of the alternate solutions were born out of various members of the team getting stuck in various areas and bitching about it incessantly.  ;)

Hahaha, this is very true. QFI was actually very well play-tested by a lot of people.  We still always found something, but a lot of game elements came from suggestions during bug-testing.  Boy, I miss that part of production.  QFI was a pretty big production.  Lots of hands on board with that one... we were all so excited.  Good times!

I can't wait for Roehm to Ruin, either.  Though it's only a short little game, it gives me insight and hope into the future.  It would be nice to be able to make Quest for Infamy 2 someday.  If we can keep QFI interest up and keep selling it, maybe someday we can raise enough funds to produce a sequel.

You know, I don't recall off the top of my head, but I'm pretty sure each class has its own way of getting out of Tyr at night.  I'll have to actually look at the game code to determine that.  It's been a while - I think I've forgotten more about QFI than most will ever know...

And once again...happy birthday, fellow holder of the day.

I still don't feel old; how about you?

I feel old as hell.  I've got two children under two years old, two dead kidneys, one non-working 62 year old kidney and one working 30-something kidney.  I feel ollllllld.  Heh.  But thanks, man, hope you had a good birthday too!


Hey Themis,

Yeah, it's just me shipping stuff.  I've been continuously shipping items, but I have not gotten to yours yet; I had bigger packages and overseas stuff marked for later, as it requires a little more time and effort to assemble them properly.

I've been trying to keep up, sending out a few packages a week, but things have been busy.  You should see yours sometime in the next few weeks, I hope.  You can always check in here with me, I try to check these forums pretty regularly now.

There's still a few undiscovered secrets in the ole gal.  Not as many as we planned on putting in, though, haha. We always had ideas for funny Easter Eggs to be discovered years later.  None made it in, though.


any packages this weekend?

Yep! You should get yours over the next couple days.


It's not actually just a simple cropping - all the original information will still be there, but we've written code that will display what needs to be shown, and on some screens, it will scroll up or down 40 pixels so all the information is still there.  Just what's viewable at one time is limited by 40 pixels on some screens.  It's actually an interesting system.


Hey Guys,

I took a bunch of packages down to the Post Office today and sent out some stuff! I've sent some people PMs with tracking numbers and info - more will be going out soon, and we're rolling from here on out.  Hopefully some of you will see your stuff very soon!


Also, seriously, everyone who posts here is a decent person, really - I understand people's frustrations, and often what I want to happen doesn't meet with what DOES happen for me in a week.  I'm really excited I got a bunch of packages made and a bunch down to the post office.  I'll be happy to get more and more done as weeks go on.  Thanks to all who support us, and me, and I know why some are peeved, I do.  Hopefully, this will all be behind us in several weeks and we're all happier about things.  Also, HEY SARAH!

Hey guys, sorry - the last few days of my week were a wash, but I've got some free time this weekend, so I'm finishing up those packages and I should have them out next week sometime.  I'll be sure to send you your confirmation numbers - just wanted to give you an update.  Just have a few more packages to finish up and sort, labels to print, etc.  Thanks!  More pics and stuff post-weekend.


K0SH, got your email! Well, I can't tell you who I sent the packages out to last week - they were some DVD and/or Book only ones, and they're not regular posters here, so I don't want to publicly announce them.  I can say, however, that packages for eXo, K0SH, Sven, DosBox and Kaldire are being packaged today, and I'm going to the post office Thursday afternoon, so I can send you all (privately) tracking numbers and such so you can track your packages.  Kal, you can send me a PM to confirm the new address, pretty sure I have it, but just let's check before I send it out.  Sven and DosBox, if you want to confirm your addresses with me, too, send me a PM.

I should have confirmation and tracking numbers for you, like I said, so I'll send PMs/emails (whatever you prefer) with the details.


Yeah, honestly, I think that many of the people that have gotten their physical goods just don't care any more and don't check in here, or on KS, etc.  I'm sending out some this week, so hopefully people will start getting them, and I'm sure some people will share them here.

I can't believe this has to be said, and it's more for any lurkers that might be around, but here goes - as I've said in many places, the best way to contact me is via email - gets to me quickly.  If you have something to discuss with me, get in touch with me there. Contacting members of my family, being rude or threatening to them in any way is over the line, and if this happens, I will not be pleasant about it.

As for the shipping, some work and packages have been done this weekend and will be sent out this week - hopefully those of you posting here regularly (Kaldire, K0Sh & eXo) should get your packages this week.  I'll be sending out more and more in the coming weeks, and I hope you all enjoy the contents.

I have tried to be level headed and humble in dealing with this, as I know this is MY delay.  The shipping part is on me, as I have the elements, and is not indicative of any other members of Infamous Quests.  The teams of people who worked on these games, made them, tested them and released them are amazing people.  I had the fortune of working some of the most amazing and creative people I've ever met - they brought my words and thoughts to life, and they raised the quality of my own work in my writing and my programming.  I wanted to make some adventure games, much like the games I played in my youth when I was young, and being able to do that and share them with an audience has been amazing. 

I'm sorry the physical rewards end has been my downfall - I can assure you, there has been no ill-will or malicious intent with them.  Only poor time management skills, some anxiety about making sure they come out okay, and a lack of the free time I once took for granted.  I am very sorry about this end.  Please don't think badly of others around here because of my mistakes.  Professionally, I take the lumps on this one and it hurts.  I always tried to run the Kickstarter on a personal level as well - because it was such a new and intimate way to fund the creation of the games.  I got to know many of you on a personal level over the past few years, and believe me, making your acquaintances and sometimes,  your friendship, has made all the difference in the world to me.  People from around the world offered us (and me) not only their financial support to make these games, but their personal support.  I met a lot of other people who shared the dreams and love of these kinds of games.  I could have never done that without Kickstarter and Infamous Quests.

 In the end, I know - I sure made a piss poor shipping department, and believe me, I'll never go work in one for the rest of my life.  I may never work in making games or anything creative again, who knows.  But I'll also never have as amazing an experience as I did with this.  I look forward to sending out your packages, and with each one, I know a weight will be lifted off me, and with many I'll be including some hand-written notes.  It's meant a lot to me.  All my love to team IQ - you guys helped make some amazing games.
