Informace o hře

In desperation, the jarl of Jarnvidr has called for a Heroine, to stand against the forces of frost and put an end to the lasting winter. Her might, sorcery, and cunning may be humanity’s last resort. Are you up to the task, or will you die trying?

Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok is an adventure / RPG hybrid. Like in many adventure games, you have a world to save, and must use your wit, guile and inventory to puzzle your way through.

Like in many roleplaying games, you can customize your character with various classes and skills, and must train yourself in combat to stand a chance against the fierce monsters in your way.

The game is designed in the spirit and atmosphere of the classics, and strives to have the same high quality of art, music, and plot. With multiple character classes and several solutions to many puzzles for further replayability.

First off, this game is free, so you lose nothing but time if you try it out and don't care for it. However, if you're a fan of the old-school point-and-click games of yore, and pine for the days of Sierra like I sometimes do, this will be right up your ally. You do need patience, as it's slow going traversing the map, but that's the nature of the beast. Battle vargs, troll, brigands and more as either a warrior, rogue or spellcaster, and save the world from Ragnarok.

The only thing I don't care for is how they've made the need for sleep and shelter function. You can turn it off (good! I don't like bothering with those types of things), but that also puts the game in the easiest mode for all battles, too (bad, so far the fights I've encountered have been too easy on this setting.) The solution is to play fast and loose with the difficulty setting; I have it on a more difficult setting until the game indicates I'm going to die of exposure (for crying out loud, put on more than a cloak! what is with people underdressing for the weather in games?!) or hunger, and then I turn it down and continue on with that setting until I eat, sleep or find somewhere warm to recover.

Don't let that put you off, though. It's a terrific little game and honestly, I feel like they're doing themselves a disservice by giving it away; I'd have paid for it. In any case, give it a try. I'm thoroughly enjoying it and highly recommed it.

Fans of the classic adventure games by Sierra will be right at home when playing this. Taking heavy inspiration from the Quest for Glory Series (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quest_for_Glory) that was released throughout the 90s the game doesn't fail to live up to it's high standards.

The story is pretty straight forward and once again pays homage to the Quest for Glory series. Like in the older title you are a hero(ine) who is suddenly stranded in a foreign land and then forced to deal with impending doom. The story takes many twists and turns along the way and is intricately crafted to keep you on your toes.

The gameplay is equally inspired. You have a choice of three character classes to chose from when you start. Each class has their own unique traits and skills. The enjoyable part is, much like the classics, each obstacle you face can usually be solved in different ways. Magic, brute strength, or sleight of hand can be used to accomplish each task differently. Conversational options can also change the required task. This creates the chance for a varied play through and replayability.

The combat is the Quest for Glory series was never it's strong point and it's not the strongest point of this game either. It does get the job done though and isn't a turn off.

The music and sound effects and crisp and enjoyable and fits the atmosphere of the current screen well. The voice acting is excellent if somewhat varied in it's quality.

The artwork is amazing. It represents the 90s game style perfectly. Backgrounds that look like they could have been hand painted fit together well and make the world feel well put together. The sprite work is clean and well executed. The portrait pictures for the characters are interesting and give a face to what would otherwise be a handful of pixels.

All together the game is simply amazing, especially for something that is offered for free on Steam. If you're the person who feels adventure gaming hit it's peak in the 90s and misses the feeling those games give you this one will be exactly what you want. It feels like a game that was made by Sierra in that era and simply unearthed later.

If you've never played the classics then I still recommend you give this one a shot. Then after you complete this one I recommend you check out some of classics that inspired it and run through the entire Quest for Glory series.

Ever wonder how it feels like to play a game on a 2001 Windows XP? Then this is the game for you!

Heroine's Quest is a classic adventure RPG game where you must survive harsh environments, facing creature enemies along the way before facing the final boss on the final battle. The amount of puns and fourth-wall breaking is what made me stay to play this game even more. 6/10 would recommend!

An excellent spiritual successor to Sierra Entertainment's Quest For Glory series. As a kid I played through the QFG and King's Quest collection numerous times, each time enjoying it more than the last. Even as an adult now I still return to them just to remind myself of what true gaming brilliance is.

Heroine's Quest is, especially for a free-to-play game, a worthy tribute to those. Its refreshing new story based in Norse Mythology and game play reminiscent of Sierra's adventure-game style brings back the fondest gaming memories while managing to stand alone in its own creative way. If more games were made in this format by this company I wouldn't hesitate to purchase them. (Hint hint Crystal Shard).

This game should be more popular!
It's hard to believe this game is free. You can tell how much love has been put into everything about it, from the backgrounds and soundtrack to the humor and easter eggs. It's just phenomenal, and I feel like they could've been selling it for 15 bucks.
It's also weirdly educational! Many, if not all of the characters in this game are based on characters from the Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda. I had to look up "Andvari's ring" (which, trust me, you will also want to look up if you ever get it) and learned more about Andvari. Then I learned more about Snorri. Then I went "wait a minute, let me look up some more characters" and ended up learning about Volund and Hervor, Sigurd and Brynhild, Liff and Lithrasir, etc etc, Thrivaldi, Skrymir, and even Ratatosk lol so now I know way more Norse mythology than I did before.
So definitely check the game out! I highly recommend it, especially if you're into oldschool Sierra games like the Quest for Glory franchise.
