Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok - v1.1 now available
« on: February 23, 2013, 06:40:03 AM »
Crystal Shard is proud to announce the release of Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok, available for FREE download!



Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok is an adventure / RPG hybrid. Like in many adventure games, you have a world to save, and must use your wit, guile and inventory to puzzle your way through. Like in many roleplaying games, you can customize your character with various classes and skills, and must train yourself in combat to stand a chance against the fierce monsters in your way.

The game is designed in the spirit and atmosphere of the classics, and strives to have the same high quality of art, music, and plot. With multiple character classes and several solutions to many puzzles, the game has excellent replayability.

Features:
- Explore the rich world of Norse mythology!
- Three character classes with separate side quests: use your strength as a warrior, the arcane arts as a sorceress, wit and guile as a rogue, or create a hybrid with skills from multiple classes.
- 32 distinct voice acted characters with animated portraits.
- Over 100 hand-painted backgrounds and 10,000 sprites in animations.
- Many monsters, including giants, trolls, and svartalfar.
- High replayability due to optional quests, alternative solutions, and the three different classes.



Available for download from www.crystalshard.net/hq.htm .

Bad ass.  Nice job, Fizzii--looking very much forward to this, just like everyone else!  :)
Lambonius...Rarely has our moderating team encountered a forumite as consistently unpleasant as you, and you've burned through far more chances than you deserved. A person really has to try hard to be so obnoxious that they're banned from AG, but you've managed it and then some.

I had to watch it with the sound off, but it looks awesome.  Definitely keeping an eye on this one.

WOW, blown away!  I love the dialogue portrait work, especially Egther.

Intendant S, you should listen when you have a chance;  very "fantasy epic", tense strings & deep foreboding horns.  Great stuff!

I just saw it with sound this morning.  It's even more epic and I so look forward to it.  I'm following it on Facebook now.

Really excellent voice work! I can't wait to see the whole game.

Quite remarkable it's going to be free. You'd have to think all that effort and time should be rewarded.

The voices are pretty fantastic...I love the two-headed troll.  ;)  This game, after QFI of course, is maybe my most anticipated game to be released.  Top 5 for sure.  If they're doing beta now they must be getting close, right?  Altho a game that large would probably take some time to do testing I'd imagine.

Yeah, this really looks and sounds top notch for a freeware game.  I'm a little surprised you guys aren't charging for it.  It looks worlds better than ATOTK did.
