We’re pleased to tell you that The Order of the Thorne – The King’s Challenge will be released on Tuesday, January 26th, 2016! It will be available on GoG, Steam, Humble and Itch.io! We’re very excited to bring you the first game in The Order of the Thorne Anthology Series.
First off, I want to apologize. This is a very self-involved post about something that I think about from time to time. Today I was asked by someone I know, “So what do you actually do all day?” followed up after me trying to summarize my typical day, with “It must be fun to play games all day.”
Making games and playing games are poles apart, I’m sorry to say. And there’s two roles I take at Infamous Quests. One is the creative side. I create games, whether it be design or programming or the occasional piece of artwork. The other side is the business side and that’s the side that takes most of my working day.
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.
Roehm 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.
