     Absolutely loved the Kransa Overlook screen in QFI.  Sure it's a screen that's essentially a "dead-end / boundary of the playable area" screen, but it gives two crucial bits of information: reinforcing that Roehm can't go back the way he came (because of the Baron), but more importantly, gives the relative positions of some of the more important places in the Valley of Krasna -- Volksville, Brattle's Cabin, the ruins of Killington Manor, the Morroi Fortress, the King's Road, the King's Bridge, the Great Oak Tree, the old Hummel place, and Hermit Homestead.

     Always thought it would make a nice wallpaper background, so I ran it through one of those neural network enhancers:

Banter and Chit-Chat! / Quest For Glory 2 - End Skareen...
« on: April 05, 2020, 10:39:22 AM »
On the April 2 Twitter feed for Infamous Quests, Blackthorne mentioned that the end screen of Quest For Glory 2 (referring to "Shadows Of Darkness") didn't hold up so well...

I'm not quite sure what he's talking about; it looks great to me!   ;D



(Someone ought to make a patch for that!)

     You know Ross Scott, right?  The "Freeman's Mind" guy?  Old DOS/Windows games reviewer?  Foe of the trend towards online-only/server-dependant games?

     Well, Ross's got a HUGE list of games that he's has been interested in over the years, and QFI is on it !

     He's played a few of the games on the list, some are still in production, some have been cancelled, but there's a WHOLE lot of others out there that have been released -- including QFI !

     Here's a video about what & why:

Quest for Infamy / Update / replace intro V.O. in QFI 2.0?
« on: February 18, 2019, 12:30:09 PM »
Now that you are accepting submissions for potential voice actors for QFI: Roehm To Ruin, I had an odd thought:

It's highly likely that you will use two new voice actors for Alyssia and the Baron, as they have more lines/speaking parts in the prequel.  Will you update the introduction for QFI version 2.0 by using the new voices (for continuity's sake), or is that introduction pretty much set in stone, where it's not worth the time/effort to splice/overlay the new RTR voices?

It's not like you don't have enough to do for the time being, and I think I know the answer; just wondering...   ;)

...Pac-Man on the Atari 2600 looking all that bad.

Must be the rose-colored glasses of my old age!

IQ Chat / Kings Quest For Steve video upload?
« on: July 21, 2018, 09:45:23 AM »
For those of us unfortunate saps who missed the #KingsQuestForSteve video stream, will there be a link to the video anywhere?

I'm especially curious to see the "never-going-to-be-released Kingdom of Sorrow" build that Klytos made in action.

IQ Chat / Where's the lame, obvious April Fool's Day post?

Come on, guys -- where's the lame, obvious April Fool's Day post?

You know, the one where you say:

Today is the day!  Not only is IQ happy to release BOTH highly anticipated games, Roehm To RuinFortress Of Fire, but we've ALSO just finished the Quest For Infamy 2: Roehm Harder sequel from that one Kickstarter that you forgot you had contributed to, oh so long ago!

Click the following link to get all THREE games, and start playing!  Enjoy!

I expected more from you guys: to hold your fan base in such contempt by doing one of these type of stupid things today.

But by treating us with such respect and in such high regard, I guess you really don't care about us at all...   :'(

Quest for Infamy / Game Choice / Design question
« on: May 31, 2017, 07:34:46 PM »
Hi, guys.

Was listening to the QFI soundtrack at work today, and a question that I've been wondering about since first playing the game hit me again:

What was the reason / decision behind trapping the Brigand and Sorcerer in Tyr at night?  The Rogue can "Magic Map" his way out, but the other two classes are essentially stuck.  (Besides forcing them to "rest" the night away until sunrise or visiting the Red Door...)

While you can get Roehm into Tyr at night, there isn't much for him to do there, especially with no Inn in Tyr.  I understand from an internal/game world logic of needing to protect the city, guarding it at night, but why in and not out?

Just wondering from a game design standpoint.  Thanks!

Quest for Infamy / I learned something today
« on: May 02, 2017, 10:30:28 PM »
While watching the PhoenixOnlineStudios/Twitch "Let's Play QFI" from last week (Part 4), Katie found the diary of old caretaker Carruthers in the rubble of the collapsed stairs -- something which I had never thought to inspect during my numerous play-throughs.

I know Blackthorne & Klytos will remind us that there are still other secrets yet to be found in this massive game world!

Since they have remained undiscovered this long, any chance of supplying some hints?...

IQ Chat / Stranger Things / PC Gamer mention
« on: January 18, 2017, 09:35:16 PM »
Just catching up on some PC Gamer magazines, and discovered that IQ was mentioned in the recent Holiday 2016 / #286 issue (U.S. version).

Located on page 91 under their "Top 10 Downloads" section, it's #5:

IQ Chat / SQ2 VGA - SQ1 Corridor Easter Egg
« on: November 12, 2016, 03:28:14 PM »
OK, I've seen the pictures for a while now -- including the IQ Twitter feed today -- but I haven't been able to find out how to access the SQ1 Arcada corridors/backgrounds Easter Egg from SQ2 VGA...

So, how does one do that?

Quest for Infamy / Old font / new picture
« on: August 23, 2016, 10:49:24 PM »
Here's a "Throwback Tuesday" picture...

I've finally gotten around to recreating the typeface used for the opening credits of Hero's Quest / Quest For Glory EGA.  Instead of being generated by in-game fonts, the words and names were actually static pictures.

I'm quite pleased with the results -- only Q & Z were missing from the set of samples -- and what better way to showcase the font than with a sample pic featuring our dear old Mr. Roehm?   :D
