Quest for Infamy / Re: WE want Quest For Infamy 2!
« on: January 12, 2021, 09:17:22 PM »
Heh. Thanks, you guys are awesome.  I would love to do QFI2 someday. We do have plans and a story to tell.  We've gotta finish up these other games in our Queue, then maybe I can think about it.

I am sending out boxes, but I haven't in a while due to COVID and some health problems of my own over the summer.  I spent a few weeks in the hospital, and I'm still recovering from that.  But I will be sending out some soon.  DM me your new address so I make sure I have it.

It's true, we have a collection of half-ass started remakes in the AGS engine, all with bits and pieces of GUI done, maybe a background or two, some sprites.  It's funny.

Ah, Jhondar.  Where QFI 2 takes place. 

I was talking QFI2 on twitter today.  I think I'd really like to make it.  Was doing some numbers - like, number of backgrounds, number artists, how much to pay them, etc.  Maybe I'll put together a rudimentary budget and see if we can make it.

Interesting...  I always thought that the northern-half of Lonaria (across the Silmahwyn river) would be the logical location for the next QFI# game, but that would certainly go against the "5 distinct lands/5 games" plan...

Would love to see it happen!

Yeah, the next game starts out in the Castle, Koniglist - Roehm is being honored in a banquet by the king, and there's an assassination attempt on the king.  Roehm is implicated, but there's no real evidence.  He is commanded to follow the only lead, and find the assassin - the lead points to Jhondar, where he goes to find the assassin.  (The impetus? His newly acquired wealth would be revoked if he refused)

Quest for Infamy / Re: The Quest for Infamy Companion
« on: April 18, 2020, 10:19:17 AM »
I have actually even sent an e-mail to Infamous Quests, asking about it, but have received no response. :( Maybe the message got stuck somewhere, for example landed in the spam folder.
Anyway, I wanted to ask a question about the "Quest for Infamy Companion".
It's known that there are some secret areas in "Quest for Infamy". I (again) can't find a screenshot from the one with the pool, but this is, if I remember well, a secret area too:

Just posting it as an example.
I have been unable to find these secret areas on my own. Does the "Quest for Infamy Companion" include hints on how to get there?


Yeah, it must be in the spam folder, I have issues with that on the IQ email!! The Companion doesn't have info on these areas - it actually went to print before we added these as bonus materials.  Goatmeal gave some hints, but if you want specifics, I can help too.

Well, I WAS going to send more out this spring, but this Covid-19 pandemic has put a wrench in my plans; let's hope everyone stays safe during this.

Quest for Infamy / Re: Super old early 2000s QFI demo
« on: April 05, 2020, 08:28:10 PM »
Oh man, I haven't had that demo in years... that's lost to time for me.  And all the stuff on the IA-Server - the forum stuff, it got destroyed/deleted or something by some kind of virus. Things got messed up there.  I downloaded what I could from that server, but we stopped having server space there a long time ago.  Maybe the internet archive has something... but, man, I got nothing. I have so little left from the original 2003-2004 QFI ideas... god, that seems so long ago.  What friggin' kids we were.

Anyway, man, good luck. Shawn might have something but me... I got nothing.

Yes, I've posted updates about it in several places;  I'll re-iterate - boxes are still going out, albeit at a slow rate.  There's only me left doing this and my time for doing it is very limited.  If you want to send me your name, I'll try and put you in the next group going out.

It's a new game we're working on.  I've been tweeting about it a lot.  There's a website and demo - www.frogsheen.com

Quest for Infamy / Re: Is Roehm to Ruin or QFA2 closer to completion?
« on: October 18, 2019, 12:07:35 AM »
I don't think there is ever going to be a Quest for Infamy 2, barring some financial miracle that allows us to live comfortably while indulging out wishes to make adventure games.... QFI was definitely a once in a lifetime kind of thing.  Stars aligned just right. 

We had an idea and design for QFI2, but it would just cost too much to produce - more than it would ever make in sales.

Well, adventure gamers forums regulars suck, so...

Who would have thought that the kind of obsessive, socially awkward weirdos who congregate to create and share Cedric memes wouldn't be big spenders in real life?

Hahah! Weird.

Yeah, I also think a lot of people who liked Sierra games in the 90s were more casual fans than hardcore gamers and that audience just isn't there now.
