General Updates

We are still working on version 2.0, but work is slow going due to a decreased time size and reduced time to do such things! However, we will be releasing it before years end - and it has some pretty cool enhancements and features. We're excited about it and I should be uploading a new beta of it in the next few weeks.

If you want to play the beta, the instructions are in a previous announcement - all are welcome to try it and if you have any bugs or notes to send, please feel free to send me a message.

Thanks to all the fans who continually support us. We're working hard to bring you more games, and to keep our previous ones updated as best we can.

PRICE DROP!!

Quest for Infamy is now $9.99 USD!!

Version 2.0 is still forthcoming; we're combing over the entire code of the game to make sure everything is optimized and fixed the best we can, and this includes some re-programming from the ground up on some things. We'll be keeping 2.0 in BETA for a while until we're sure it's ready to go live as the main build.

The old build will then be transferred to a BETA, so if you wish to continue your old saved game, you will be able to.

We're excited about version 2.0, and we hope it improves the overall experience - this also our way of gearing up for the release of the prequel to Quest for Infamy, Roehm to Ruin.

Thank you all!

“Includes more laughs and diverse characters than most adventure games in the past decade. It’s ye olde England as it is often painted, and the characters are as quirky as they come – and it’s bloody brilliant for that exact reason.”

About This Game

Why Be Famous When You Can Be Infamous?

Return to the glory days of role-playing and adventure with this humor-filled fantasy epic, styled in the vein of classic PC RPGs, where you play the charming villain. Blending turn-based combat and spellcasting with puzzle solving and adventure, players can choose from three character classes—brigand (strength), rogue (stealth), or sorcerer (magic), each with unique storylines and adventures—in one of the largest retro role-playing experiences ever. A spiritual heir to yesteryear's heroic quests, adventurers are invited to explore a world of hand-drawn wonder, as they wind their way through trap-infested dungeons, battle slavering beasts with swords or custom-made spells, and steal entire town's worth of treasure from unsuspecting townsfolk. Being bad has never felt so good!

  • Classic fantasy Adventure/RPG packed with adventure, puzzles, combat, and spellcasting
  • Play as one of three anti-heroes with unique quests: Brigand, Rogue, or Sorcerer
  • Lie, cheat, and steal your way through tales of charming villainy with multiple endings
  • Use swords, spells, or wits to blaze a path to victory: Styles vary with every play
  • Hand-drawn world seamlessly blends role-playing and adventure
  • Interact with over 50 NPCs and explore over 200 rooms
  • Customize your own spells, skills, and adventures

I read the reviews that this is similar to Quest for Glory, and bought it for my daughter to play. It is NOT like the quest for Glory games of my childhood. This is best for 12yr old and up.

As an adult - I see where it is amusing, but the analogy others reviewers are making to QfG are a stretch.

Looks like legendary Quest for Glory series, with great humour, interesting quests and killing actions. Its a "must have" for a lover of good point and click adventures.

I love this game, absolutely love it. The humour is spot on. Actually enjoying playing as a rogue, which I never quite could manage on over RPGs, like skyrim and fallout series. In fact, playing fallout4 at same time as this game, and find myself much more compelled to finish this game.

I really think that this game would be very enjoyable to anyone, and not just folks who like indie and retro games. Seriously, give this one a good go, I strongly recommend it. Well worth the full retail price, imo.

Awesome game! Just finished it and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has much of the old school adventure games. It is very funny, has nice puzzles and it not too easy, but also not too difficult to play. Some things in the game are supposed to only happen when playing with a specific character, and that was sometimes frustrating. For example, as a sorcerer I didn't manage to get the horse, while it was very obvious that this could be done at some point in the game. The game is not too linear, but some things can only be done/learned after a particular event has happened, and this got me stuck once. The scenery, music and voices were all great. I might give this another try as a thief/brigand :)

I cannot recommend this enough. it has everything you want in a point-n-click plus ALL of the text is narrated. There is something so endearing about having a narrator that will call you out when you try to do stupid things, like talk to a door, pet a cat, etc. One of my top five games of the last few years no question. Damn that green broad was super hot too.

Game is buggy, which ruins the fun. Spent 30 minutes finding a video of someone playing through a rogue mission, only to realize I'm doing it right - it simply tells me I'm too far away from a door to open it (maybe .5 feet from it), while the video playthrough lets him right on in.

This is a throwback to the old Quest For Glory games. It's following in the same path and is just as entertaining. I've only been playing it a few hours and I already feel right at home. If you are a fan of the old Sierra adventure titles then this is something you should buy.

i'm not even 30 mins into game and i can tell i'm already going to love it.come on...within the 1st 15 minutes,there are references to ronnie james dio,cheech and chong, the awesome band,Anvil and well....if you're like me and grew up playing the Quest For Glory games,then nuff said! so far,voice acting is good despite the hollow....recorded in a bathroom,type sound and the tongue and cheek humour isn't annoying(so far). plus the graphics are perfect.some of the kiddies might complain but takes me back to the early 1990's.Steam needs more games like this...in this retro style.i know there are some but not enough and the ones steam has,i've played.bring back space quest and police quest.

For medical reasons I am EXCLUSIVELY a point & click gamer. There is nothing wrong with point & click games, the stories are amazing, but I sometimes I miss the range of RPG games & this game gave it back to me.
Quest for Infamy is the silliest game I've played in a while & the sarcasm reminds me so much of the point & click games of my childhood. You're going to love it.

Let me summarise what I've seen so far and maybe that will help you decide whether to buy this game for 20 dollars or not.

First of all, if you are a fan of Quest for Glory series, you WILL enjoy this game - it has that same feeling to it. The art style does a great job at attempting to stay true to the classics and the music (at least for me) fits in the game perfectly. Regarding animations, this game succeeds with them and even the gory parts of the game have turned out good. As for the voice-acting, in general they've done a decent job with it and there are very minor flaws which probably won't even bother you. I've only encountered one monster but the fighting system is very simple and easy to learn (basically it's like in QfG, you hack, slash, stab or something of the sort). And last but not least, the game has a good amount of humour which you will witness here and there.

So in conclusion, aside from very small details regarding voice-acting, I would call this a perfect game. I understand 20 dollars is expensive for some people, but think of it this way - it's thrice or more times cheaper than your usual triple-A title on launch, so I would take it as a bargain if I were in your shoes, deciding. :)

EDIT: Alright, I've completed the game and I have to say that this game is TOTALLY worth the 20 dollars. It is very catchy, the world is just HUGE and the overall story is great. It's nice that, as others have also said, in the end you get to be a hero too as a perk. In any case, if you are a fan of good old Sierra games, you won't regret buying this game.

Quest for Infamy is a wonderful homage to the glory days of Sierra On-Line, particularly the Quest for Glory series. The people at Infamous Quests don't disappoint in giving us a humorous look into the seedy underbelly of the world of Lonaria. After escaping from the clutches of a baron to the east, Roehm hitches a ride to the Valley of Krasna as he flees toward the north. Volksville, Tyr, and the surrounding countryside is filled with unique and interesting people that will either help or hinder your progress to save your hide. Over two years in development, and lots of blood sweat and tears later, the experience shows just how passionate the development team has been in bringing their dream to life. If you're looking for an adventure experience that'll tickle both your nostalgic as well as your funny bone, then look no further than this title. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Being an avid adult gamer, and actually KNOWING the creators of the Quest For Glory series of games, and speaking as a game developer myself (Pixel Piracy), I can honestly say that this game is akin to booting up my old pentium I and playing Quest for Glory again.

It hits all the notes, and then some, it goes so far out of it's way to provide an undistilled feeling of nostalgia, while being completely fresh and true to itself as it's own game that I can only give my most sincere thanks to the development team behind it.

I have spent years waiting for an adventure game as unique as Quest For Glory to crop up again, and the wait is now over. This game, to me, is Quest for Glory V (the 3d weird one they came out with at the end of the nineties DOES NOT count.), and yes I know it's a different studio, but this spiritual successor is THAT empowering, without lacking originality, that it deserves it.

KUDOS!

I'm not good at writing reviews, so I'm gonna write a list because it's easier.

Good:
- Voice acting. Characters like Roehm, Kit and Rayford sound great.
- Puzzle design. Sometimes I did some clever things.
- 320x240. It's a pretty neat resolution. A lot of the artwork looks great, especially the backgrounds.
- Roehm. I like that he's got more personality and attitude. Similar games tend to have a main character with the personality of an apple. I'm not that fond of apples.
- That one guy wearing the clothing of the hero from Hero's Quest. He made me giggle.
- A lot of the writing is great.

Bad:
- Voice acting. Sometimes there's reverb, sometimes it's muffled, sometimes the accents makes no sense, and sometimes the voice actor honestly isn't good at acting at all. Overall, I like the voice acting, but it's all over the place.
- Puzzle design. Most of the puzzles are fine, but it's easy to do puzzles in the opposite order, and it's especially frustrating when you're denied to do the solution because you haven't triggered an event elsewhere which is an arbitrary requirement. There's also a few puzzles where logical actions not only fail, but give you a generic "Can't do that."
- 320x240. I like the graphics, but with the exception of the character sprites a lot of it looks like it was scaled way down. It would have been interesting to see it go for a higher res look.
- The premise of being a bad guy is neat, but you're not really much of a bad guy. You fight bandits, help out people, and well, have a bit of a potty mouth. There's a ton of wasted potential.
- Bugs, oh so many bugs. Background objects rendering in front of character. Clicking on edge of screen to move to next screen can be a surprisingly large challenge, especially in windowed mode. Some scripts can get very confused if you do things in an unexpected order. And I was able to find a way to skip a sizable portion of the game because I like exploring too much.
- The combat is kinda dreadfully boring. But I'm willing to excuse the game for it as the combat is dreadfully boring in every game of this subgenre.

If Steam supported horizontal thumbs up, I would probably lean more towards that. People who eat up adventure games for breakfast will enjoy this, but others might just get frustrated. I am definitely thinking a sequel has great potential though.

A pretty funny, deliberately nostalgic point-and-click RPG. Fans who grew up with the genre will surely feel a warm sensation as they play through this adventure.

Worth every penny. I would absolutely reccomend this game if you like point-and-click adventure games. They practically distilled the essence of yesteryear's games, and gave you the option to be the crude, lewd, shyster, anti-hero that you have always wanted to be.

A great point-and-click adventure / RPG hybrid in the tradition of Sierra's Quest for Glory classics. Great attention to detail with every background tidbit clickable and having voiced-over narrator comments. Many colorful characters. Voice work could be better but it's there and it gets the job done, so no real complaints.

Solid thumbs up if you remember the old classics fondly.

Quest for Infamy has the forest setting of Quest for Glory I: So You Want To Be A Hero.

Its got the varied class-specific sidequests of Quest for Glory 2: Trial By Fire.

It has the vast scope (over 200 hand-drawn areas!) of Quest for Glory 3: Wages of War.

Part of the plot concerns the fate of the cursed Killington family, an eldritch tale right out of Quest for Glory 4: Shadows of Darkness.

And the massive port city of Tyr feels a lot like Silmaria from Quest for Glory 5: Dragon Fire.

In short, if you liked Quest for Glory, you will REALLY like this game. Play it for the nostalgia alone.
