Recent updates View all (7)

February 1

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!

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.

YES! YES! YES! A perfect homage to old school adventure games.
Great music, really funny, huge open world to explore.

The story is loooong. Took me 21 hours to complete, (I only needed to look up 1 hint.)

There were some rooms & characters that were not involved with my path (the Bridgand) so after game was done, I read the walkthoughs for the other 2 ways to play. The 3 play methods are very different from each other. You'll get everything needed for the 3 roles, so you'll have a bag full of stuff you won't use. It prevents "mindless click & combine" strageies and makes you really think logically.

The puzzles are "medium" difficulty, I never felt frustrated. It doesnt take a genius to figure these out, but I didnt find them super easy either. Since the world is so big and there are so many characters, it takes lots of time to peice together what you need to do.

Captivating & fun from beginning to end. If you like old Sierra & King's Quest games, you'll love this.

Really like the game. I feel like it is bloated in a way with excess scenes. The inventory window is too small and feels like there are excess items. I have also found what I think are bugs, one that I think is going to require me to restart from the begining, because it seems I did something by accident too early in the game, and now that I "really" have to do it, it won't let me do it again so I can progress.

Price is too high though, I got it on sale. I think $10 would be fair. I recommend the game anyway, but not really at this price, get it on sale.

I rarely write reviews, but this game is REALLY good. It has a style and quality of old adventure games, but also the modern humor. Also it merger traditional point and click with RPG elements, some parts of the story have branches and different solutions. Very recommended to everyone who likes adventure games and RPG.

Ah, how could I forget! All who hate traditional do-gooders and want at least sometimes to play a rude, cynical villain - start playing this right now!

You wait sixteen years for a new game that picks up where the Quest of Glory series left off. Suddenly there's Quest for Infamy.

Quest for Infamy will look and feel familiar to anyone who experienced those glory days of adventure gaming – frustration and all. Quest for Infamy is an ambitious, often entertaining homage that has all the ingredients for success, but the overall experience is impaired by uneven humour and lacklustre combat.

Luckily I won't have to wait another sixteen years for a sequal of this game. :)

While the combat system is boring and easily exploitable (just train blocking until you're invincible), the quest are just undoable withouth a walkthrough:
- You get tons of useless items you have to browse through via a clunky interface
- You rarely get hints when you are close to solve a puzzle, just the generic "that does not work here"
- Tthe puzzles are quite arbitrary
- Lots of pixel hunting is involved. To make it worse, sometimes you click at a correct point, but the protagonist does not react properly and you discard the correct solution.
It's oldschool, yes, but mainly regarding it's playability. There are are fun moments in playing an a-hole narrated by a sarcastic voice, but these are outweighted by the drawbacks for my taste.

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.

This game. I don't even know where to begin.

Playing this game is like walking down the street and seeing that beautiful girl you dated 10-15 years ago walking towards you. You feel older, more experienced, more up to the task. She still looks exactly as gorgeous then as she did now. Everything feels so familiar. You two talk, you remember some of your old jokes, but you're both older now, so some of the jokes are a bit more dirty. You're finally able to do so many of the things you've wanted to do for years.

Of course, I'm talking about the girl being the 1991 VGA remake of Sierra's 'Quest for Glory: So You Want To Be a Hero?' The game play and feel of this game is VERY much like the old QFG games. You need to pay attention. Hell, even take notes.

Right now I'm stuck on a part because I refuse to turn to google to figure it out. And it's so much more fun because of that. If your idea of a good time is to just follow an arrow to your next objective and have the game hold your hand all the way though, this isn't the game for you. Sorry. Go play skyrim or something. Otherwise, buy this game. Now. Why are you still reading this? Scroll up and hit 'Add to cart.'

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
