“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.”

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

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.

As a big fan of the old Sierra classics from the 90s I knew I had to own this the minute I saw it on Steam.
It's all there: the cheesy but funny jokes, the oldschool style and a real challenge. This isnt an easy game, not as easy as most adventure games released nowadays (but also not as hard as for instance Quest for Glory).

It reminded me most of Hero's Quest/Conquest of Camelot. Except the maincharacter isnt a very nice person, he's quite egocentric. Which is nice for a change, I also like his dark humour ;).
Its mostly adventuring with a little fighting.
This is an adult themed game. There's killing and cursing. I havent seen any sex or nudity yet, but there are hints it might be possible (maincharacter is a ladies man ;) ). Dont expect a Leisure Suite Larry though.

All text has voice actors. Some of them are brilliant, some of them, well, are not. A lot of cheesy overacting, I love it.
Graphics are... retro. Awesome.
System requirements? a pc will do

If you have fond memories of the old Sierra games and youre looking for a challenge you'll love this.
If youre new to adventure games this probably isnt a game for you.
If you dont like the retro style dont buy this.

One thing though, the price seems high. Especially for a retro game. But dont forget you'll have many hours of fun playing this, and for me every euro I spent on it is worth it.
One of those games I'm convinced I will finish eventually.

This game will only play in a window. I would be fine with that for $5 but not for $20. That said, Quest for Glory was one of my favorite games. I don't know how many times I played through it and I would say that Quest for infamy is even better. There is less frustration and I love the voice acting. Every bit of text is voice acted. Great game if you are a fan of the old school point and click RPG.

A tribute to the past but still very enjoable for the new generations. Good writing, memorable characters, beautiful art and music. Totally worth it.

Overall, it is an awesome nod to the classic point-and-click adventure games. For myself, the game deserves a 10/10. Love the Easter Eggs with reference to popular culture as well as to classic games: the Weeping Angel reference in the graveyard was just too funny, wonder if there is a way to make it a secret bad end if you keep looking at it?

It is kind of sad that you can't do mixed classes (since I used to love making a magic wielding thieft in Quest for Glory), but the game compensates for it by making class specific quests and story instead, which makes the gameplay interesting in its own way. Let's not forget to mention, the hint of a sequel, too! Now if only the achievements and minor bugs could be fixed when the patch is out.....

A great throwback to the old days of Sierra point n clicks. If you've ever played Quest for Glory or Kings Quest, you'll feel right at home with the gameplay. The fact that your character this time around is a rogue, rather than your typical do-gooder hero, adds a lot of flavor to the game and the dialogue had me laughing all the way through. The game also offers a little bit of replay value, which is unusual for the genre, by letting you play through as 3 different classes. The only real flaws the game has are that it can be a little buggy at time, although the devs seem to be pretty good about addressing there, and there tends to be a lot of clutter in your inventory, which is a small peeve of mine in this kind of game. These problems, however, are pretty small in the long run and I would not hesitate to reccomend this game to anyone who enjoys old-school point n clicks.

Bravo! This game was a nostalgia overload from playing Kings Quest or Quest for Glory. The challenge of puzzles and fighting were just the right difficulty. Can't wait for part 2.

Modern day Quest for Glory, plays like one, with similar class story progression and similar battle system to the old. Funny dialogues, lame character, and good ole (sometimes not too logical) puzzles. Highly recommended for fans of the series. Thumbs up!

After 24 HOURS OF GAMEPLAY and completing Quest for Infamy twice, I CAN NOT in good conscious RECOMMEND the game in its CURRENT STATE (Bugs!) and CURRENT PRICE-POINT (Maybe at 10 bucks or less during a flash-sale...) I am a life long Quest for Glory fan, and had high hopes for Infamy ever since stumbling across their Kickstarter page. I purchased the game shortly after release and intially found the game charming and nostalgic, but soon discovered that its story, world, puzzles and fighting were clunky and confusing.

PROS -

-Impressive Artwork
-Good music
-Crude and genuinely funny
-Good voice acting and some interesting characters
-Big nods to classic Sierra Adventure games whilst still remaining its own game
-Massive potential for future releases

CONS -

-Navigating the world gets confusing. Too many screens and unnecessary details add a lot of unwanted 'Fluff'
-A lot of the Items you gather are useless and very few are class specific; so your inventory becomes a jumbled mess quickly. Again, 'Fluff'
-Combat is passable but not great. I remember being more engaged in Quest for Glory (1-4) combat even though both combat systems seem very similiar. Can't really place my finger on why the QFI Combat is so boring...
-Bugs and out-of-order trigger events can make game unplayable.
-Most puzzles are fairly straight forward but there are a few obnoxious 'Seriously?!' moments. No happy medium.
-Quest for Infamy seems to lose its identity quickly. I feel like a bunch of ideas were thrown out and then cherry picked to slap around a Quest for Glory clone. This is ultimately why i believe the Quest for Glory series feel superior.

In the end, QFI is not a bad game, it's just not a great game. I wanted to love it, but after 24 hours I had to move on. Maybe grab it if you're a big Quest for Glory fan and if it's on sale. Otherwise, if you're looking for a great Quest for Glory 'clone' for FREE - go download 'Heroines Quest' on Steam ... NOW.

Trust me ;)

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.

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 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.

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.

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!

For anyone who loves Adventure Games, Fantasy Games, RPGs, or just good stories. Quest for Infamy is a fantastic time.

Very obviously made as a labor of love by people who truly enjoyed the Sierra Quest for Glory series. Definitely recommended.

Had a blast with this game. The art is great, voices are good (especially the narrator), but the music is OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING. Seriously, when the game wants to creep you out, the music knows just what to do, so much so that I actually found myself glancing over my shoulder in my chair because the music just pushed my mind into a state of paranoia.

I was also able to complete the majority of the game without looking for any hints, but there will always be walkthroughs/hints on the internet if you need them.

If you remember Quest for Glory and games like it fondly, you'll get your money's worth here. :)

A love-letter to Quest for Glory that delivers in every aspect.
The guys at Infamous Quests got it right with this game. It is reminiscent of the good old games without feeling the need to recite them word for word. Beautiful hand-drawn backgrounds and character portraits, an interesting, funny story with memorable characters and true old-school mechanics. I am especially impressed by the feeling of epic scale and freedom in the vast lands of Quest for Infamy. I would however love if the developers could make the RPG elements more relevant to the game play. I also think it would be a great addition to include a female character option for the main protagonist in the next game.
Overall the feeling of interaction in such a grand world that lets me choose what to do next combined with a tounge-in-cheek story that never feels ridiculous sent me on an unforgettable adventure that fills my heart with joy! Thank you Infamous Quests.
