Yes, the project is getting very close. But it'll still be a little wait to iron out all the bugs and get the balancing right.

We do this in our free time as a hobby, and we want it to be free so that anyone can download and enjoy it. It's definitely been a lot of work, and certainly a labor of love for Corby, the art lead.

Plus, who doesn't like Norse mythology? :) I actually learnt quite a bit about Viking myths while working on this!

I think I saw a Paypal link for donations, and I plan on putting a little something in, at the very least.  So much time & effort has obviously gone into it and it looks & sounds really awesome.  I love me a female heroine too (good OR evil).   I can't pronounce the names of any of the characters or locations but that makes it all the more intriguing... :P

You got a link you can post?  I'd be tempted to pitch in a few buckazoids, myself.

There is a Paypal link at www.crystalshard.net (plus other games!); and the same button has now also been added to the Heroine's Quest website: http://crystalshard.net/hq.htm

Main thing for us is that people enjoy the games we make :)

Damn, I was afraid they'd be using PayPal.  Oh, well.  I'll make sure to spread the word about it, at least.  ;)

You can now make your own boxes/DVD cases etc for HQ, and just in case you need extra incentive, we're holding a small competition where you can have a cameo sprite in the game :)

Join the Heroine's Quest box contest, and win a cameo in the game!

(1) Download the box art for the game from http://crystalshard.net/dls/hq_boxart.zip
(2) Print one of the box art images, and use it to make a DVD case, CD case, or actual game box for HQ.
(3) Take a picture of it in suitable surroundings. What is fitting is up to you; you could find a snowy landscape to place it in, or cosplay as a troll holding the case, or create some fan art and place the case to the side, or anything else you can think of. Be creative!
(4) Post the picture in the AGS forums in this thread. Otherwise, if you have Facebook, please put it in our FB group, and link to it from your own Facebook timeline or wall.

The deadline is October 16th (23:59 GMT). After that, the Crystal Shard team will act as judges to determine the three best entries. The three winners will get a cameo in the game: describe what your character should look like and we will place it in Heroine's Quest. One cameo is alive and well, one is imprisoned, and the last one is dead (because hey, the game is about Ragnarok). The cameos are not hidden; a player is likely to come across them in a normal playthrough.

The first price gets first pick and an animated cameo; the other two are static. Your character must be suitable to the environment, so e.g. robots or ninjas are not an option; and note that this is
a cameo, not a moving or speaking role. By submitting a picture, you give us permission to use it as promotional material on e.g. our website; we'll include your name if we use it. Crystal Shard retains full rights to the game, including the sprites used for the cameo.

What if you wanted to be a robot ninja?  :P

Seriously, though, great idea for a contest.  Good luck to those who enter.

Just in case anyone is interested and may have missed this before - there's less than 3 days left till this ends, so get your photos in before the 16th October in order to have a chance at one of three available cameos in HQ!

Heroine's Quest Update
« Reply #27 on: November 14, 2013, 10:08:12 AM »
Getting very excited about this QFG style game! :)

this part sounds really cool (Elder Scrolls like):
"Characters aren't always stationary in the one place, and often move to other locations during the day. You can even follow them from room to room! This brings a lot of life and realism to the cities, and is not commonly seen in adventure games at all!"

Sounds more "Lure of the Temptress"-like than "Elder Scrolls"-like, but that makes me look forward to it more.
