Hey there BT. Have you managed to knock down any more physical copy mail outs? My physical copy of Hero-U arrived the other day and it reminded me about my QFI physical.

I saw that you're maybe getting another kidney now after all which is good news!!!

Oh and people stopped being so nasty on the kickstarter comments after I told them last year about what you were going through.

Stay strong BT.

What a dick. Obviously not a true fan then. I've really got into collecting boxsets these days. Had plenty from my childhood already (including some nice sierra ones) but lately I've been buying boxsets of heaps of old games that I treasured in the 90s but didn't have a proper copy of eg just got my hands on an original Micropose Master of Magic boxset with the manual and spell sheets etc.. F*CK YEAH lol! So yes I will treasure my IQ stuff when it arrives although come think of it I think I only ordered the plastic dvd case version instead of the full boxset. Sh*t! Haha oh well!!

Yeah hopefully my post on the kickstarter comments might 'kickstart' a few peoples consciences and take some heat off you guys for a few more months.

Been meaning to drop by and see when my physical copy was coming but have since seen that BT's in real trouble health wise again. I've donated to the gofundme and am crossing my fingers all goes well with the transplant from his wife. I've also posted about the situation over on the Kickstarter comments as people there were getting super aggro and threatening legal action etc.. sigh.

Hmm looks like you've got a gamefaqs forum with a few posts and a gamespot forum allocated too.

Hey guys.. someone appears to have made a QFI forum over at neoseeker.

Thought I'd let you know in case you wanna go post a thread in there with nice pictures and links etc.

I've posted things in some of their other empty forums and the views piled is as I'm guessing new threads are visible on some generic main forum page that thousands of people see.

Well it turns out I don't have to go find a PC Gamer US as I just opened up my PC Gamer UK (which I get every month) for February and there it is!! :)

I never thought I'd make that.. the mag I've been collecting since I was a boy.. they've even stuck in an extra picture! It's also the only one of the top 10 that is bigger than half a page and has more than 1 pic.. that's just crazy!!! :)

Still catching up on some recent PC Gamer magazines.  Blake00's QFGIV-3D was mentioned in the recent March 2017 / #289 issue (U.S. version).

Located on page 90 under their "Top 10 Downloads" section, it's #1:





HOLY S***! I nearly had a heart attack when my mod appeared in Rock Paper Shotgun back in Jan.. but now PC Gamer!!! Wow!

Thank you so much for letting me know! I've gotta try and get my hands on a copy! I normally get the UK PC gamer here in Aus but I do see the American one's occasionally in stores.

Is this the right one?

Happy new year guys! :) It's been a while but I've been working on my site and have made the following additions to the QFG related games list.


New QFG related projects added:
Quest For Glory IV 3D – Massive new section! My total conversion mod for ZDoom Hexen taking you on a 3D action packed adventure in Mordavia.
QFG6: Hero’s Legend – Full tribute page created! Creator of QFG2.5D is working on a 3D QFG sequel based in Silmaria & Tarna.
Quest for Glory I Extended Edition – Full tribute page created! QFG1 remake with many new areas (eg open mountain pass like in QFG4.5).

Changes made to existing QFG content:
General – Contents menu added.
General – All back buttons changed to utilise HTML bookmarks. Now users don’t have to re-scroll down the entire page constantly! :)
General – Fixed some missing slashes in code.
Heroism: The Art of DeFence – New HD screenshots and GREATLY enhanced demo now available.
Quest for 3D – New awesome screenshots of his amazing realistic recreation of Spielburg.
Destiny: The Lost Soul – FINALLY the long lost demo has been found & made available by the Hero6 team!
Quest for Infamy (classic) – Finally found the original Brigand theme song I used to use (forgot it was also hero selection track), now the original 2010 tribute page is finally truly restored.


As always, let me know if something is missing. :)

@DrSlash that looks awesome! Unlike me you actually have real legitimate 3D artist talent haha

@Chadly thanks man, and you can play QFG4 3D right now if you want. Playable demo is available. :) ST Doom demo should be out next weekend.

Oh and the other project I worked on isn't related to QFG or Sierra gaming but if there's any trekkies here they may enjoy it. I've been working on a Star Trek - The Next Generation Doom level where you fight against the Borg and Species 8472 which I'll be releasing in a few days too. Demo video here:

Hi guys :)

I figured it was finally time to drop by and publicly announce my Quest for Glory IV 3D project. After years of tributing other peoples awesome QFG fan games at Blake's Sanctum I decided to have a go at making my own QFG fan game.

QFG4 3D is a total conversion single player 19 map mod for the classic game Hexen with the ZDoom enhancement. The mod contains new levels, textures, decoration, weapons, monsters, NPCs, cutscenes, music & sounds taking players on an old-school linear 3D action adventure set in the world and story of the great classic Sierra game Quest for Glory IV - Shadows of Darkness.

Before anyone else says it I'd like to say that QFG4 doesn't need to be in 3D, nor is my project an attempt to convert every single part of the game to 3D (if you want to do everything in QFG4 then go play QFG4 haha). I created QFG4 3D just for fun and to see if I could actually do it lol. Plus it was rather fun to create new areas/views not seen in the original game (eg I show more of the town & give you 360 degree views of each original game location). So if others happen to enjoy this project too then that's a bonus, but if you're not a fan of retro gaming & graphics then this probably isn't going to be of much interest to you.

I used the old Hexen/Doom engine as I lack the graphic & programming talents to use a modern game engine, plus I wanted it to retain the look at feel of the era when QFG4 came out. However the ZDoom/GZDoom extension updates the old engine quite a bit to use true 3D, OpenGL effects & now in 2016 it even supports VR! So if you ever wanted to walk around Mordavia as if you were there then this is your chance (at least until someone else does a much better job haha).

Hope you guys enjoy this first demo below. Be warned that it will likely be a long time before there's another demo, I've spent nearly 2 years on this & another project and have sacrificed a lot. I'm burnt out & want to do other things, including getting back to PLAYING games instead of making them lol!





For more information, more screenshots, animations+descriptions of all weapons & monsters you'll face, and of course the download links for the demo and required files check out my QFG4 3D website here:

Yeah I'm not sure why that weird old issue has come back to life lol. Nor am I sure how RPG vs adventure has anything to with inclusion and exclusion. It could a bloody flight sim for all I care, if you're flying over Speilburg & people are shooting arrows up at you then congrats you've made my list lol.

I put games of any type in the list that are related to or significantly influenced/inspired by QFG. That can apply to graphics and/or gameplay. Hero-U most definitely fits that definition. It just happened to be the Coles themselves that were inspired to make a game this time, instead of fans haha. Hell just play the Hero-U demo and it feels and looks like a scene straight out of QFG1 thief mode. I suspect we will lose count of the amount of 'hat tipping' and tributes to QFG stories, graphics, and locations in the final product despite the game being set in a different universe/world. And most importantly there are still too many QFG fans out there who don't even know the Coles are making a new game, I intend to help fix that!
