Heroine's Quest Trading Cards

http://store.steampowered.com/itemstore/283880/

When HQ was first released on Steam, our intention was to include Steam trading cards in addition to achievements, leaderboards, and several other features that add to the game. Unfortunately, Valve's policy does not allow free games to give out trading cards with gameplay. We considered handing out cards to players high on the leaderboards, but it turns out this doesn't work under policy, either.

Trading cards are very popular on Steam, and therefore, one of the most frequently asked questions on this forum has been how to get cards for HQ. For players who want to craft a Heroine Badge or show off these cards on their profile, we have two options available.

First, if you have any Steam cards you don't want (e.g. because they're duplicates) you can convert them into 'gems' and you can use these gems to craft booster packs. Craft a HQ booster pack to gain a set of trading cards. This has worked for several years now. Not all players are aware this option exists, but at least one Steam player has a level-5 HQ badge by now.

Second, Steam does allow trading cards with in-game transactions. We have set up an item store for this purpose. You can buy a decoration for your favorite character class, and after about ten minutes of playing you'll get a trading card drop. You can use this to complete your set or trade them with other players. The link is at the top of this post.

Please note that the minimum transaction required for trading cards is set by Valve, not by us. Also please note that these items do not affect gameplay and are not required to complete the game. They're simply an extra option for players who love trading cards. Enjoy!

Developers Appreciation Package

http://store.steampowered.com/app/769130/Heroines_Quest_Developer_Appreciation_Package/

Heroine's Quest is freeware. If you want to show your support for the development team, you can post a big 'thank you' on the community group, and/or you can get this DLC as a small token to us. You will receive this package with developer's documents and information on the history of Heroine's Quest; several resources that ended up not being in the game; and an old alpha build to play around with, that was used for internal bugtesting. This is for your curiosity and interest; the main game contains everything you need to play, for free.

Did you know that the developers live on three different continents? That the original design called for a fifth chapter on Yggdrasil? That short 3D movies were in the works to introduce the cities in the game? Find out all this, and more, in the developers notes for everybody's favorite Norse-themed female-protagonist Sierra'esque adventure-RPG-retro-hybrid!

We've also put all our adventure games together in a bundle, allowing you to get them at a nice discount (and an even bigger one during the Steam sales): http://store.steampowered.com/bundle/5656

About This Game

Explore the rich world of Nordic mythology! Egther, last of the Frost Giants, has sworn to turn all the world to ice. A young heroine is called to fight him, but first she must survive the harsh environment, battle hostile trolls, and deal with many creatures and characters from the classic myths.

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. Each class has her own solution to the numerous obstacles, where the warrior is the most straightforward to play, the sorceress focuses on smart solutions and finding the right spell for the situation, and the rogue cheats her way through life without getting caught.

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, there are plenty of options for further replayability. The game has been voted voted 69th All-Time Best Computer RPG by RpgCodex. It is available completely for free, or as we like to call it, priceless.

"As perfect a tribute to Sierra's classic Quest for Glory series as you could hope for." Kotaku
"It's great to see a female-centric heroic quest." - Corey Cole
"I was still discovering new quests and things to do even on a third playthrough." - Last Token
