Buy Quest for Infamy


Recommended By Curators

"Retro-Point & Click Adventure with some RPG-elements. You play a likable self-centered bastard in a well written story. Great puzzles, fun characters!"


“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

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.

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.
