เล่น Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok



"Excellent adventure RPG in the vein of Quest for Glory, featuring a female hero. Good enough to be considered a worthy successor to the original series."

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.

My first introduction to PC gaming, I found HQ:tHoR easy to get into, and loved the story. It will always have a special place in my Steam Library (I mean heart).

This game is so good! It has really funny and detailed dialogues and characters. Plus they are fully voiced! I love the class system, it really gives the game a lot of replay-ability. I have to say it is just a very refreshing game which brings back memories from playing D&D and older RPGs. From a design point of view it is well programmed and though out, well written and the attention to detail is wonderful! PLUS IT'S FREE! The only downside is it makes me wish this game existed with full HD graphics, though it's aesthetic is really well done in the retro style. Great game! I can't stop telling everyone how much I love it!

As a long-time fan of the Quest for Glory series (and all of Sierra's adventure games)
I have to say this game is outstanding. Everything about it is well-thought-out -
from the skill set (which is actually meaningful), to the music, the character art and speech...
Not to mention the very cool quests and puzzles, game logic, vast world lore and the story itself...
and even the combat system is pretty good, even though it's not as fun as QFG2 remake's combat system.

I had an amazing time playing this over and over, and I shall find myself replaying this many times more in the future.
That's a sign of a great game. Thank you guys at Crystal Shard, keep the fire burning! (:

Takes me back to the old days of playing King's Quest on an old MS DOS computer (voice acting like KQV). Fortunately the genre has made large strides in gameplay and this retro-look back has made sure to include some of these. It's a basically that retro point and click adventure that make reach an itch and I found the experience to be engaging, even those adverse to the genre might consider it's worth a look on a free-to-play model.

A point&click adventure with multiple possible playstyles and puzzle solutions, some combat and RPG elements and tons of optional things to do.

-A lot of content: it took me roughly 30 hours to beat the game on my first try (though I took my time to try and deal with every optional thing I came across). Even with so much content in a free2play game (kickstarted), the overall quality of the content is quite high. The layout is mostly non-linear so you can literally go on adventures and explore new stuff as you like. There are not only multiple ways to solve a situation/quest, but the results can vary quite a bit too.
-RPG elements: using a skill (any skill, not just combat-related) has a high chance to increase every time you use it. Even walking around aimlessly in the snow will boost your endurance and strength over time. There is also a hidden 'honour' value that is revealed at the end of the game.
-Three playable classes which can be customized even further by picking up to 2 additional starting skills. Since it's an adventure, there are obviously big similarities on what you do overall, but how you do it can be completely different. Some optional content is also genuinely reserved for certain classes / skills.
-All character dialogue is supported by voice acting.
-The music in this game is great.
-The setting (nordic mythology: odin, thor, loki, brunhild, fenrir, valkyries etc.) seems to have been taken quite seriously without diminishing the gameplay for the sake of it. The further you get into the game, the more fantasy elements you will come across.
-Day & Night cycle without any global time limit (as far as I know) so you can explore the game at your own pace. Still, the daytime can have a significant role in certain situations.

Depending on your taste:
-Trivia to other games and minor pop-culture humor (as is tradition with similar games back then I guess). However, this does not really influence the feel of the game overall (e.g. there are no 'joke' characters that belong to the actualy story etc.). Think of it as having tons of little not very meaningful eastereggs. In my oppinion, the humor is not as good as in some of the great classics, but it's nice to see how much effort they put into so many little details as well.
-Female protagonist who is not objectified (as in: the gender doesn't really influence the story, it just so happens that your character is a woman). I consider this a positive thing (I don't need huge boobies on my screen 24/7 as is the case with some other games) but you have no option to play a different (e.g. male) character, even when chosing a different class. Considering the vast amount of necessary art and voice-acting, this is quite understandable though.
-The game is quite challenging, especially at the very beginning. There are many ways to die or otherwise screw things up (even permanently!). Thankfully you can easily save and load in 50 different slots and there is also a difficulty slider. Personally, I like starting out in a creepy, hostile world and then growing more powerful in knowledge, skill and equipment. It feels like genuine accomplishments that have to be earned. Reaching a maximum score is also very difficult (there is sooo much optional content, you will not find it all on your first playthrough) so that's another motivation to try the game over with a different class.

Overall: 9/10

Such a great homage to the classic Quest for Glory games. I think the cold meter is something Lori and Cory Cole would have added to QFG2 as a Heat Exhaustion meter if they had thought of it. A perfect blending of classic gaming infused with a few new ideas.

Sierra games lives again. Very much the spiritual successor to the Quest for Glory games, but with a more accurate Norse mythology, it is well worth playing.

Absolutely horrible. Too slow paced to be a "starve to death in 5 minutes" type of game. Takes forever just to navigate from one screen to another. Forget graphics, the control configuration sucks. Very clunky and no smoothness whatsoever. Cycling through commands just to avoid talking to a sword embedded in a tree is apparently not annoying enough but the attacks against the player's intelligence prove to be the only thing thats worth entertaining. Just another one of those halfass, frustrating, IBM era games stuck in the armpit of retroville with it's story around a poor woman left half dead at a doorstep with no way in hell of avoiding starvation. Some call it "old school". I call it old school ♥♥♥♥.

Amazing game at first! Was really pleased at first but later found out this wasn't a family friendly game, for some reason the creators pointlessly put in innapropriate material that they only partially covered up.

This is one of the best completely free games you will ever play. The amount of effort and quality hard work that went into this game is immediately obvious in its high production values.

And when I say this game is free, I mean it is absolutely free. There is nothing you can buy here, no DLC no microtransactions. You get everything right away, and for nothing.

The voice acting by itself is impressive enough to warrant trying the game. Every single dialoue line spoken by a character is voice acted, and with 280000+ words that is a lot of voice acting. Not many AAA games manage to have everything voice acted, but this free game does! Tell me this is not pure dedication.

Heroine's Quest is at first glance an homage to the old RPG/adventure games of the late 80s, early 90's. But as soon as you spend some time with it you discover that it is so much more. It is an early 90s RPG if it were made today. And from that you get all the great things from those sort of games: great story that is also funny at times, complex and interesting quests that have different ways to approach and solve them, amazing atmosphere and great dialogue. All of this in exchange for some pixel graphics, which I am not a fan of, but it is evident they spent a lot of time creating the environments and characters in the game and then even animating all of them, which is not easy to do with pixel art.

The weak side of the game is the combat which is quite simplistic and basically just pushing one button most of the time, at least at the lower difficulties. It is interesting the way combat is done in this game and it is much more involved than I expected before starting to play the game, however as I said it is lacking in complexity and would've been more fun with more combat skills. This is most evident in the first half of the game or so when you only have one combat spell (as a sorceress) and dodging left, right or back. And that is pretty much all you can do in combat for the first 5-6 hours.

Some of the puzzles/quests are also annoying to accomplish because the goals that are presented are much too vague and you need to do a lot experimentation to finish them. It doesn't help that for much of the game you will have no fast travel option, so you will have to walk through the whole forrest every time you will get an idea for how to solve a certain quest, which leads to a lot of time wasted just walking back and forth.

Great game if I had to pay for it. As a free game it is amazing.

7 ½ / 10

This game is an excellent stroll down memory lane for lovers of the Hero's Quest / Quest for Glory series from Sierra Online. The scripting and voice acting are very good, and the tale itself encourages creative thinking, rather than following a quest compass to an objective. I look forward to future enterprises from Crystal Shard.

One of the best games I have played in a long time. I can't believe it was free!

Great art, story, music, dialogue, voice acting, and puzzles! If you like games like Kings Quest then you should try this.

this game. omg. i am a HUGE HUGE fan of the old quest for glory for the dos. i am an old pc gamer. i grew up on having to type everything out c:/dos/quest1/run.exe before you can even start the game. it brings back huge memories to see this. its so awesome. the gameplay and style are exactly the same. poor sierra they used to make such good adventure games. its great to see this come back. i really hope they make more. there is one qualm i dont like about this game though. the chill factor. you cant explore much without getting too cold or too hungry too fast. so you will spend alot of time grinding lower areas till your stamina and endurance can handle it. fighting is once again great for the old style. alittle confusing at first but when you get it down you find yourself scrambling back to heal till you get better. other then that i would highly reccomend this to oldschool gamers. these young'uns perfer graphics and blam bloom pow excitement. this is for those who enjoy a casual gaming experience and dont mind the small grind before excitemnet. aka fallout or wasteland the long before the storm.

I loved this game!! I cannot recommend it enough. It is absolutely incredible to my mind that there are people generous enough to put in countless hours of their time and create such an entertaining, wonderfully written, designed, acted and put together game and then give it away for free. Absolutely astounding! I loved every minute of this game. It was so much fun and very similar to the Quest for Glory games that I grew up and fell in love with. If you love wit, adventure, and puzzle solving you'll love this game. I am definitely contributing to Crystal Shard for yet another amazing FREE game. You guys rock!!!

This game teaches a lot about Norse mythology. It has a good feel to it and it's free! Don't try this game if you dislike lore and history.
