Deconstructing Quest for Infamy – The Game

It’s been over a year since our first commercial game, Quest for Infamy, was released and with the impending release of our next two games I figured it was as good a time as any to look back at what we’d done and make some of my thoughts public. I’m going to try and be objective in this article, but as with anything creative, a lot of ourselves went into it so a lot of the time things I like or hate are my personal feelings. There’s plenty of reviews on the internet if you want to see what other people thought!

Quest for Infamy

 

Steve (Steven Alexander – my partner is this crazy game creation business) and I have talked a lot about our game in the time since it’s release and we’re pretty much on the same page with this stuff, so while I’m making writing this post, we’re both in agreement about it. Two final thoughts before we start, a lot of people worked very hard on this game so I’m using the the terms “we” and “our” when talking about it to simplify matters. And secondly, this is going to be quite a long post, so grab a drink!

Roehm’s Adventure Continues

We have been talking a lot about Order of the Thorne : The King’s Challenge lately, and rightly so because it’s a bloody fun game, but I just wanted to let you all know we hadn’t forgotten our Mr William Roehm!

Roehm’s adventures continue (or should that be begin?) in Roehm to Ruin, the second of our games to be released very soon. One of the early events that happens is this shakedown of his friend Gareth, a local fish-monger and supplier of illegal pharmaceutical enhancements. Does Roehm help out his friend? Does he run and get some guards? Does he help the thief? You’ll work it out, we’re sure!

Roehm to Ruin is now complete and all the graphical assets are in the game and working a treat! The game is being tested as we speak (or type in my case) and after some more runs through the testing machine we’ll get the speech recorded and in-game, for your listening pleasure!

QFI Companion Goes to Press

We sent out this update to our backers last week but we wanted to share the news with everyone as we’re delighted to announce that the QFI Companion will go to press in it’s final form! We’ve had a busy last few months, with the production of our three new games (QFI: Roehm to Ruin, The Order of the Thorne – The King’s Challenge and OotT: The Fortress of Fire) but Broomie managed to put in the time, care and attention to finishing up the companion to Quest for Infamy. We’ve jam packed it full of information, behind the scenes tid-bits, beautifully reproduced artwork in full color and an amazing hint section.

Making a book is difficult, especially when you have a small team working on it! We had a few technical difficulties in formatting the book for the printer we’re using – and that took a lot of testing, trial and error and extra late nights working on it. Last week, we finally got our test proof for the book!

The book, in all its glory.

Other than these minor changes, the book is ready and now going to the presses! The book looks amazing in hand – I’ve been showing it to friends and family, beaming, because our artists works look so amazing in print. The book is nice and large, and is a real testament not only to the team who made QFI come to life, but to all of you too.

The back cover

I should be receiving several large shipments of books in about three weeks, they tell me, and as soon as they come in to me, they go out to you.  I hope this book finds a place in your collection – and even on a coffee table.  I hope someday guests and friends flip through the book, look at the pictures and ask “What is this?” and you can say, “Oh, it’s a video game I helped make a few years ago.” and smile, like a boss.

Hello! First off, just wanted to mention that Quest for Infamy was released one year ago and it’s been one hell of a year since! We’re blown away by all the kind words and feedback we’ve had since its release. It’s been an incredible adventure and we want to thank everyone who has supported us by buying a copy. We’ll have some more QFI related news very soon but for now, Happy Birthday Mister Roehm.

To celebrate we’ve partnered with Humble Store to offer Quest for Infamy with the Official Soundtrack for $9.99. This awesome deal ends 31st July so please buy, share and do what you can to exploit this deal. Well, not exploit against us but the closest that exploit and support can be.

New Game(s) Announcements and More!

We are proud to announce that we have two new games in the pipeline and we plan to release both of them later this year. Introducing Quest for Infamy: Roehm to Ruin and Order of the Thorne: The King’s Challenge.
rtr-oott-logoRoehm to Ruin tells the story of how Mister Roehm ended up in Baron Brandlevrot’s Castle on that fateful night, which launched him headfirst into his Quest For Infamy. Roehm to Ruin aims to be a challenging, puzzle orientated adventure game with alternative paths and many secrets to be found.

The second game is an original title that will be the first in a planned anthology series that we are calling Order of the Thorne. This will be a series of fantasy adventures with each game having it’s own unique story and hero. The first in our series will be The King’s Challenge where you will assume the role of Finn the Bard, a challenger in a competition held by the King to seek out his missing Queen. Along with your magical lute, Finn must use his cunning wit and musical ability to venture forth in this fantasy quest.

With our aim to release these games by the end of the year, Infamous Quests are on somewhat of a quest themselves to ensure this happens and that we also deliver quality products as well. Therefore in April we plan to launch a crowd funding campaign to support the development and the team behind the games. More details will follow and we plan to use a new platform for crowd funding which we are excited to share with you soon.

You can check out the game pages for both Quest for Infamy: Roehm to Ruin and Order of the Thorne: The King’s Challenge to see screenshots and more information. We’re really exited for 2015 and cannot wait to share our new adventures with you later this year.

New Content! Quest for Infamy Now Even Bigger!

With the release of version 1.1, we’ve added three new areas into the game. When a patch becomes as big as this one, and with so many changes to the game, some large and some minor, it comes to a point where your old save games will no longer work. It’s a quirk of the engine that Quest for Infamy is built in that this happens, but we do feel bad about it. So to make it sweeter for you, we added in three new areas to explore, one for each class, as a way of saying “sorry the patch has broken your saves, but this might make you feel a bit better.”

SPOILER WARNING – We’re not going to describe how to access the new areas in this post, but we are going to show you what they look like, and that in itself might give a couple of things away. You have been warned!

Without saying anything else, here’s the new areas!

newcontent-1 newcontent-2 newcontent-3

With a new area specific to each class, we think you’ll love finding these new areas. It’s like Quest for Infamy but with even more Infamy!
