Hello Folks!

I'm happy to announce that we've partnered with The Humble Store to make Quest For Infamy available for pre-order through their store!  You can visit the page here, and make a pre-order!


All digital rewards for our Kickstarter - Digital Downloads of Quest For Infamy, The Soundtrack, and Special Edition Bonuses will be available to all backers who pledged to them from the Humble Store as well! Before the game is released, you'll be sent information on how to obtain your rewards via The Humble Store.

The Humble Store and The Humble Bundle help support independent game makers, and we're proud to be involved with them!  I've had many people write me and express their hope that we would be available in the Humble Store, so I'm happy to say we are!

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them - and I may add them to the FAQ below!

Thanks for all your support, friends!

IQ Chat / Why.... Blackthorne?
« on: July 28, 2013, 10:28:32 AM »
Some of us around here have net-handles.  Me, well you can see I use "Blackthorne" which has become "Bt" over the years.  It's a funny story behind Blackthorne, and it's the handle I have used on-line since 1990.  Since I was originally playing Sierra games 23 years ago now.

Many people often think it stems from the Interplay published game "Blackthorne" which came out for the SNES in 1994, but my usage predates that - I was 12 in 1990, and a voracious reader.  My grandfather was a big reader, and I remember these large tomes that lived on on his shelf - "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo, "Crime and Punishment" by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, "Exodus" by Leon Uris, "The Source" & "Cheasepeake" by James Michener are some that stick out - along with "Shogun" by James Clavell.  So one day, I took down Shogun and started reading it - it was definitely a struggle and a bit above me, but on my visits, I would read a couple dozen pages or so every time - and the protagonist of that novel was John Blackthorne.

Being 12, I thought that was a cool name, and when I started to dial into BBSs, I used that name as my login ID.  In the early day of modem and BBSs, I used it on every site - and you'd find users from all over keeping the same ID, establishing an identity.  So, I have used this for over 23 years now.

Nice bit of random trivia.  I'm sure everyone has stories behind their net handles.  I'm always interested in hearing them.

This isn't unexpected for me, but this song definitely reminds me of summer.

Also reminds me of a time before I met my wife - I was 25, and I ended up sorta dating this girl MUCH younger than I (She was 18) and this song reminded me of her.  She often had no idea what the hell I was talking about! Haha.  Ah, Hey 19 - we got nothing in common...

Um, if Activision just let us sell them officially, we'd all be making just a little bit more money!!!

Yeah, the unofficial word is that LSL has sold hundreds of thousands of copies - which bodes well, I think, for adventure gamers.  Even though it was a well known IP, it's sales help everyone out there trying to make adventure games.

If you've even spoken with Lamb at length, at least ONE Indiana Jones reference will ALWAYS keep up.  It's Lambs Law.

As time increases, the likelihood of a reference to Indiana Jones increases.

I'm playing it currently - and it really is awesome.  A lot of fun - the writing/interactions are amazing.

Honestly, all Zombie stuff, since Romero, has been social commentary over horror.  And the trope of turning the classic story on it's head by making it dark and gritty?  It's old and tired.... The art for Ozombie looks great, but honestly, the game is as interesting and original to me as a can of government cheese.
