Heroine's Quest released

Post by CaptainJei »

Heroine's Quest, a fan-game inspired by Quest for Glory, was released (for free) on Christmas Eve. I've been playing it for a few days now, and I have to admit it's pretty great so far. I'd say it's of a quality similar to AGDI's King's Quest and Quest for Glory 2 remakes. It FEELS a lot like Quest for Glory, using a similar stats and character class systen, but it doesn't come across as a derivative copy. You can download it at: http://www.crystalshard.net/hq.htm

Wow, lead designer Corby LaCroix
He made the fantastic, yet sadly unfinished "Caitlyn's Destiny".

I will surely check that one out (too bad it's AGS)
Thanks for the hint

I didn't even realize that, Raziel! Caitlyn's Destiny is my favorite AGI fangame by far.

Also, why 'too bad' that it's AGS? Because it's effectively Windows only?

Runs fine on the current Linux port of AGS, for what it's worth.

I wish someone would port AGS to Mac. I'm always recommending AGS games to people who can't play them, it seems.

According to the OSX README, the main problem is Allegro 4 not working with more recent versions of OSX. I don't know any details, though.
