Jouer à Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok

 

À propos de ce jeu

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.

This game is worth playing, particularly given that it's free. Heroine's Quest is of a good enough quality that it could be considered a proper entry in the original Quest for Glory series. It's a well-crafted look back at an era of games that we haven't seen for a long time, but it can very much stand on its own independent of any nostalgia. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=602493706

Summary: Quest for Glory in Midgard
Multiplayer: No
Completion: 16 hrs
Cards: Yes - must craft or receive boosters, buy from the market or trade to obtain
Cloud: No

The Quest for Glory series by Sierra were basically adventure games with RPG character development and combat tacked on. Imagine King's Quest but with the ability to fight foes in actual combat instead of dying every five seconds to the environment. Heroine's Quest takes much of its inspiration from these series of games and adds a few mechanics of its own.

Right away you'll notice the generous use of norse mythology, even hinted in the game's subtitle. The decision to have this set so directly in norse mythology feels somewhat odd to me. Rather than creating its own mythology that's inspired by real life mythology, this one references it directly and loosely retells those stories. It's not a bad thing - Disney does that all the time. But this one feels a tad out of place.

There's some good humor here and there. The squirrel is great. I enjoyed the Tetris game over. I feel it could use a few more laughs though. Roughly 80% of the characters are intensely serious, and they don't quite gel in a world that has silly characters like Aurvandel.

The art and music is fantastic. The game world feels somewhat barren, but this is more a fault of the genre, as many adventure games tend to include many screens with little interactivity. I would have liked more items sprinkled on the ground that you could pick up.

The hunger/survival mechanic is strange at best. Adventure games generally reward you for exploring. Heroine's Quest instead punishes you for straying too far, or taking your time. Because of the survival gimmick, the puzzle-solving seems to take a backseat because you're always pressed for food and warmth. Thankfully you can shut this feature off, but I did try to play it as intended and did not find it increased the fun factor at all.

The combat system is pretty simplistic. It's one-on-one real time combat with menu inputs, much like the QFG1-3. Nothing special, and not irritating. It's just there.

Most of the game is voice acted, which is rare for indie adventure games. Huge thumbs up for that! Most voices are good, though Hervor sounds curiously tired and disinterested. I get that there's a deadly winter, and everyone is at their wits end, but I would have liked a more likeable character to wake up to first thing than her.

The map is greatly appreciated! This also gets a huge thumbs up. That is definitely something missing from just about every adventure game.

Perhaps the most striking feature of this game is the fact that it is free! Try it out. You've got absolutely nothing to lose but time. The sheer amount of work that must have gone into it cannot be understated. I enjoyed it enough that I believe it deserves a donation. I give this game a 8/10

Any Quest for Glory fans out there? If so try this "now".

Nostalghia aside, this is a great game that the free price tag does not make it justice.
It's an adventure with great puzzle & exploration elements, as well as some pretty good story in a Nordic setting.
Don't be alarmed by the Pixel graphics, this is one experience that you will hardly forget after finishing it.
And it also holds replay value since the 3 characters can finish the game by solving puzzles in so many different ways.
Some achievements are practically impossible to get though.

Recommended, especially for adventure/puzzle fans.

Very little to complain about in this game, it really is quite stunning. I found the music in particular to be very good.

Wonderful love letter to the Quest for Glory series, and 100% FREE to boot. I was an old member of the Hero6 scene back in the day and remember the first screenshots of this game. Wonderful to see it finally released years later.

Great things:
+ Old Norse setting really adds to the game, with appearances by Loki, the valkyries, Sigurd, frost giants and tons of lore that will make you want to read up on viking mythology.
+ RPG stats really do matter, much more so than they did in the Quest for Glory games.
+ Combat system is fairly deep in the spirit of Quest for Glory 2; true, eventually you get strong enough to just click your way through most battles but each enemy has certain "tells" that you need to watch out for and dodging attacks takes practice. There are also many more enemies than I expected.
+ TONS of sidequests, and many are optional. Rogues, since they can steal stuff, actually have the option to bypass what feels like 80% of the side stuff in this game, making the replay value really substantial.
+ For a free AGS game, Heroine's Quest feels remarkably "alive", more so than some commercial releases. All of the characters have their own schedules and say different things when they're in the presence of different people. Some might find this annoying, since it can be hard to find a character during a certain time of day unless you know their schedule down to the hour, but I felt it added a lot of life to the adventuring experience.

Not as great things:
+ Main character is bland. I realize she's a blank slate like the hero in Quest for Glory (who was also bland but at least silent), but since the devs made the decision to make her talk, I felt they could have added more spice to her dialogue. She could have been as memorable as Roehm from Quest for Infamy.
+ I know quest logs aren't a traditional feature of adventure games, but this game could have benefitted from one since there are just so many side quests to keep track of.
+ Sometimes things veer into infamous "adventure game logic". Occasionally items that can be picked up are not obvious on screen and certain puzzle solutions seem illogical. I used the official walkthrough more than I would've liked and certainly would not have guessed that Rogues need to escape the blizzard with Heime by combining a certain two items.
+ Speaking of Rogues, it's REALLY easy to get caught by guards when thieving in this game. A few warning messages like "That was a close call! You really shouldn't try robbing that house again." or "Do you REALLY want to pick his pocket?" might have been appreciated.

Neutral:
+ The food/rest/freezing mechanic definitely won't be liked by all! At the start of the game it's so hard to pass out from the cold...this really makes the first few in-game days tough since you're constantly retreating back to town for warmth and worrying about food. I didn't mind this, since it really makes you feel like a badass at the end when you're just running through the forest with your stamina barely dropping. But I also "cheated" a few times by dropping the difficulty to zero when I was in danger of freezing/starving, lol...

Anyway, nitpicks aside - a lovely game! This came out the same time as Quest for Infamy, so I know a lot of people are wondering which of the two are better. Well, this one's FREE, and you can't beat that, but they're both good. In the end, Quest for Infamy is funnier and has a slightly more epic scope, but Heroine's Quest provides a tighter experience with better RPG mechanics and lore. Play both if you're an old school QFG fan.
