Hey Team Bt and Klytos, or anyone who knows? How many posts do I need to get to Mastermind instead of Senior Villain????
I would guess 500 given Goatmeal is Mastermind.

It's actually making progress. I even thought it wasn't happening for a while, but then I saw that Bt posted a build late last year and frequency of new builds has increased now. There is some new content / graphics compared to a while back too.

Voice auditions were recently held, and Bt should be working through casting actors soon. Progress!

Thanks guys :)

@Brainiac We will post the game on Itch.IO for those that prefer not to use Steam (the game is actually DRM free on Steam too). We'll approach GOG sometime in the near future and hopefully they will be open to having the game on their store as well.

Crystal Shard is pleased to announce that we are officially working on a deluxe version of A Tale of Two Kingdoms!

A Tale of Two Kingdoms is a graphical adventure in the style of the classic Sierra games. Set in the world of Celtic mythology and fairy tales, it features many sidequests and alternate endings. For this new release, we are doing a Deluxe Edition with a new interactive prologue, several graphic updates, and professional voice acting.

The ancient kingdom of Theylinn is beset by enemies. Within the castle walls, nobles vie for the old King's favor, and not everybody is happy with the sole heir to the throne, princess Rhiannon. Meanwhile, danger approaches, in the form of an invading army, a hostile giant, and a mercenary troop who are ancient enemies of the Theylann king...


Please support us and help to get this game Greenlit on Steam: (to open Greenlight page in Steam client) (web link)

Hi all!

Just giving you guys the heads up that the bundle of games is now available on Steam. Currently launched with 15% off the full price :)

Thanks guys :).

We got greenlit today, which was a nice surprise. Will update again when we release :)

The Crystal Shard Adventure Bundle is now available on Steam!

Three short and intriguing adventure games from the makers of Heroine's Quest, spanning several genres and styles.

Deep within his dungeon, Yrolg the Necromancer is summoning a mighty demon to conquer the World. Three brave adventurers, a warrior, a rogue and a sorceress, come to his lair to disrupt this dark ritual. Your job is to stop them! Lead the heroes into traps and to a nasty demise, in Quest for Yrolg.

On the starship Quasar, the lack of shore time causes tension to run high. The latest argument has proved too much; bringing these warring characters back together will be no easy task. Control four different characters to explore the ship; instead of on puzzle solving, the game Starship Quasar focuses on their personalities and interactions.

It is time for final exams at the Magic University, and notorious slacker Larry Lotter is about to flunk all of them because he spent less time studying and more time drinking beer. His last hope is to cheat like there's no tomorrow! Using a spell to reverse time, he gets the chance to do his day over again until he passes, in the parody Larry Lotter and the Test of Time.

The games offer voice acting, Linux support, various languages, achievements, and trading cards.

(For what it's worth, I think Crystal Shard has been trying to steer more towards commercializing their games with the Deluxe editions they're selling on their website.  But they still don't have much of a presence on any of the major storefronts barring Heroine's Quest on Steam)
Well, it's more so we can get our games more widely distributed as distributors tend to want to make money :P. Heroine's Quest, while noticed by some media when it was first released, was only more widely recognised once it got put on Steam.

We haven't been pushing the publishing aspect much lately, and admittedly Radiant has been dragging his feet with the smaller adventure games because focus has been on another bigger (non-adventure) project. But hopefully we will be doing a Greenlight soon as we shouldn't keep basically-complete games in limbo.

I'll add that it wouldn't work to merge groups because each group has their own designer/writer who has their own stories and ideas that they want to see implemented.

Sure, resources like artists can be shared (e.g. I have worked on nearly every Crystal Shard game as well as IQ game), but that doesn't make things better/more profitable for either group.

Can you continue making games in your free time without fancy graphics, voice or soundtrack. The story is what is the most important in the adventure games and I would love to see more adventure games.

I think the good folks at Infamous Quests would rather continue making games in their PAID time...
Not just that, but it's normally the programming that takes the longest time and cost in any project. Not the graphics (this is low res after all) or the voice acting. Animation normally comes second in cost after programming.
