With her telekinesis, unorthodox use of torture instruments, a knack for improvisation and the help of a shady fox she makes her way from the peaks of Glass Mountain to the deepest dungeon.

Anna's Quest - Update geplant für/scheduled for 16.2.2016

Hello friends,

An update is scheduled for this Tuesday updating Anna's Quest adding the Polish version, improvements to the game engine and fixing some minor bugs.

The savegames are compatible, however some smaller issues could arise due to the engine update, like a mouse icon with a small functional delay at startup, some telepathy/object reactions gone missing, an older build number gets shown (1.0.0199 - actual version is shown in the version.txt in the game folder)

None of these issues do hamper gameplay at all.

You can alternatively use a savegame from the Daedalic support website:

Daedalic Support Site

Download a Version 1.1 savegame, delete the old savegame(s) from the savegame folder and paste the new savegames in the folder.



Hallo Freunde,

Am morgigen Dienstag ist ein Update für Annas Quest vorgesehen, dass die polnische Version, einige Verbesserungen der Gameengine und ein paar kleinere Bugfixes mit sich bringt.

Die Savegames sind kompatibel jedoch kann es aufgrund der Änderungen an der Gameengine zu kleineren Problemen mit den älteren Savegames kommen, die aber das Gameplay selbst nicht beeinträchtigen. Bekannte Probleme sind ein Mauszeiger, der nach dem Starten für 2 bis 3 Sekunden nicht interagieren kann, einige Reaktionen von Objekten und Telepathie entfallen und eine ältere Versionsnummer wird angezeigt (die korrekte Version findet sich aber stets in der version.txt des Spielordners)

Wie gesagt, die Probleme sind nur sehr gering, können aber durch neue Savegames behoben werden. Diese finden sich auf der Daedalic Supportseite.

Hier geht es lang

Einfach die alten saves aus dem Savegame-Ordner entfernen und die neuen einfügen).

About This Game


Dragons, witches, trolls... No one can stop Anna. With her telekinesis, unorthodox use of torture instruments, a knack for improvisation and the help of a shady fox she just makes her way. She communes with the dead, shuts off the local taverns beer supply and gets old ladies behind bars...

The world of author Dane Krams' debut on the game development stage isn't as cuddly as it may seem. Anna however, is actually perfectly nice - or is she? It all starts with freeing talking teddy bear...

Anna's Quest unfolds a hand-drawn, grim tale with a good dash of self-irony.


  • Unlimited inventory with special slot for a baby dragon
  • Small-time Vandalism
  • Discover a Unicorn's inner beauty
  • Black magic and telekinesis - this time, not exclusive to villains!
  • Executions for the whole family!
  • light-hearted, courageous, bad-ass: Anna
  • Classic Point & Click controls with hotspot-indicator
  • Awesome ending (really!)

Based on this games lovely artwork, enjoyable interactions, and amazing ending, I would recommend this game. The only thing that I absolutely hated in this game was Anna herself. Playing such a sickeningly sweet girl made her one-dimensional. She was downright stupid in how "good" she was. I realize what they were going for, a bigger metaphor of sorts, but I found myself clicking through her dialogues just to not here that squeaky voice. I give Anna's Quest a thumbs up, I give Anna herself a thumbs down.

If you have 7-10 hours to kill,. this is a great game. It is not however, the best adventure game out there or even in my top 10.

Holy ♥♥♥♥ I would have packed a lunch box if I knew that I would be going on a feel trip. I finished the entire game (about 7 hours) in one sitting. It is currently 4 am and I feel fairly satisfied yet heart broken but left with a funny taste in my mouth. The whole story up to the end was great with interesting characters and an engrossing plot. The finale, however, was a little lacking with all the build up we had before. Don't get me wrong, I had a blast along the way and really liked the "open for interpretation" ending, but DE wrapped it up too quickly to be "absolutely satisfying" by leaving a few subplots unanswered (fingers crossed for a sequel). Overall, I would easily recommend this game, along with any Daedalic game.

Kein Deutsch fuer die Amerikaner?! Echt?!

Seriously, one of the reasons I like Daedalic so much is that I can practice my German whilst spielen but this game doesn't seem to support German audio (I've switched the language under preferences to no avail and the in-game menu doesn't switch for the audio). Tips to remedy this or an update'd be welcome y'all.

Then perchance shall I review this title.

The game has a slow start, but if you manage to get past that, it really displays its charms. While the game might seem to be a game for children, it is darker and more serious than initially visible.

I can really recommend the experience.

Anna's Quest is a Point & Click Adventure game set in a medieval fantasy world.

You are Anna and your Grandfather, which is also your only family, is sick. He's getting worse every day, and you eventually leave in search for a cure, however, your Grandfather always told you that the world outside was dangerous, evil and dark. On your quest, you realize he wasn't lying, but, not everything in the world is bad, even those who are, have a reason to be, even the evilest and witched of them all...

P.S. That ending. My heart. It still hurts.

It is a good game. I really like Anna's voice, though some may disagree, but the ending seem a bit rushed. Take your time through it, you could really see Anna's changes throughout the story.

13 hours for main story completion on 1 playthrough. Add in a dditional 30 minutes if you want to collect all missed achievements. The only difference is how many saves you have to easily get the "posterboy"

8/10 - One of the few games that got me hooked. It has the same quirkiness and humor I wanted the same as Deponia has BUT has a more heartfelt story(Ending again needs some work but the main idea is known). Again a wonderful game with just the right amount of difficulty. I had to use a walkthough once though since a particular item was quite hard to find

Other thing I want to note is that this game is quite easy to 100% achievement with only 1 achievement being hard to get.

Loved the story line, and that the take away is that the little girl's courage (or naievte) is what wins the day. Anna refuse's to let the world taint her heart, and she does good deeds/mini games, which further's the story line as well giving her complexity. Loved playing this game, had fun figuring out the puzzles, until the story got so good I got a walkthrough and played to see this cartoon/game unfold. I really like puzzles, and click and point games, but the story here is so excellent, was more exciting than the puzzles. This storyline is like a parable on war - how to forgive the enemies that slight you (or not) and the consequences for both. Story writer's should get an award for their script! Beautiful to watch and play, and listen to the story. Anna was an awesome hero.

Anna's Quest is a colourful and pleasant point and click adventure game.

The artwork and visuals are presented by a cartoon style that looks beautiful.

The voice acting is also really good and captures the characters perfectly.

The puzzles all make sense and a hotspot button makes the game easy to play so you dont ever have to pixel hunt.

Another thing that impressed me was the attention to detail in the dialogue branches and how Anna responds to different actions you may ask of her.

The game is not without faults however.

The game is really short and the ending to the game is very abrupt. It feels like the game was rushed near the end game and completion of the game seems to lack any great detail in what happens in the ending. This underwhelming ending to an otherwise brilliant adventure game stops it getting a 9/10 review from me.

Some people may not like how the game almost feels like its aimed at kids and that the main character, Anna, is a child with an innocent outlook on everything as expected of a young girl. This can make it feel a bit kiddy and girly but the puzzles have enough depth and satisfaction that a child would not be able to complete this game but adults would still like it.

Enchanting but short - 8/10.

Anna's Quest is a sweet little Point and click adventure, it has some good puzzles in each chapter, and i found my self being stuck once or twice, but that just makes it that more satisfying when figuring out a puzzle :)
And its fully Voiced, i love that, much more relaxing and immersive than reading all dialogue. Very much Recommended.

Summary:

A point and click adventure game with heart, Anna's Quest does something that I haven't seen the genre do for a while: tug directly on the heartstrings in terms of empathy. While it's gameplay is what you'd want out of the genre and does a great job in really being in that sweet spot of not being too easy, but not being too painfully frustrating, it's the story telling and characters that carry it in a way that hasn't been done in the genre for a while. There's not a lot of humor and the visuals lack compared to some of their prior work in Deponia, but its clear that they wanted to make a heart-warming story more then anything else, and great voice acting and writing makes you want to see what happens next. It's a game that I'll be completing for the story alone, and that's what you need out of a game in this genre. Definitely worth a pick up for narrative focused fans or Point and Click lovers.

Gameplay Footage and Video First Impressions: http://youtu.be/CNSkY5ITB7s

Lists:

+:
  • Perfect balance of gameplay in terms of difficulty. Not too easy, but not with old PnC adventure game logic that makes you want to pull your hair out.
  • The story is superb and in particular, the empathy aspect of the game really shines through. Be prepared to have your heartstrings tugged on.
  • Voice acting is great. In particular, Anna is played perfectly and the characters in question come to life thanks to their voice actors. Not over the top, but just right.
  • Enough red herrings added in terms of gameplay without it being annoying for exploration.
  • Have I mentioned the charm?
  • Pacing is handled rather well.

-:
  • The visuals seem like a step back from Deponia.
  • Could have added some puzzles/minigames to add a little of variety to gameplay.

Options include Subtitles, Hotspot Indicator, Achievements notice, Minigame Skip Button, and Open Inventory by Clicking, all of which are selected by default except the inventory one. Separate sliders for Music, Voices, Effects, Cinematic Volume, and Global Volume, plus Fullscreen, Resolution from 640x480 to 1920x1080, Additional Animations, HD Cutscenes, and a slider for Brightness. There are also six languages to choose from.

I did the game entirely as point-and-click, but there are keyboard shortcuts if you prefer. Left-click to interact, right-click to examine, press down on scroll button (or the space bar) to indicate hotspots. Double-click on an exit to immediately leave the scene.

The game offers a tutorial, which will guide you through the basics of gameplay, including how to combine items, interact with the environment, and use your powers. Be aware that you MUST right-click (examine) some items in order for the game to progress, so remember to look closely at your environment and inventory items!

The game never tells you that there are 12 candy pieces scattered through the game. Nothing happens when you click on them, save that they disappear. Finding all 12, though, will net you an achievement. You can find the Steam Achievement Guide HERE, and it includes all of the candy locations.

Gameplay is mostly logical, though there are a few odd tasks and solutions. Overall, I'd say that it's one of the easier point-and-clicks out there. Anna gives you the occasional gratuitous hint, and she won't let you do anything that would be game ending (like jumping off a cliff ;p ) Do REMEMBER TO SAVE, though! There is an auto-save function, but it's not set up by default.

I found the game to be delightful. There are many references to fairy tales scattered throughout the game, not to mention hidden references to other Daedalic games. The story is very dark if you stop to think about the full implications of what's going on around you, but the way it's presented takes away the horror edge completely... Well, *almost* completely. ;) The beings we meet can be weird, amusing, colorful, wicked, mysterious, sweet, and more, making for a cast full of interesting characters.

There is a deeper message to Anna's Quest; one that is not immediately evident. I will not ruin it for you by explaining further, but I will say that it had an unexpected impact on me. Overall, I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the game, and recommend it to those who enjoy the genre.

Anna's Quest is a very good Point&Click Adventure made by Daedalic Entertainment. It took me about 11 hours to complete the story and another 2 hour to complete the rest of the achievements.

Story
You are following Anna who lives with her Grandpa. But sadly he got sick and you must find a cure. On your journey you will have to solve riddles and puzzles to achieve your goal.

The story is very good and has some interesting twists. I wished there would be multiple endings. With only one ending I had not much interest in replaying it a second time.
There are many side references to other Daedalic-Games and fairytales from the Brothers Grimm.

Design and Sound
I liked the art. Very well drawn and there are fun and interesting details you can spot in every scenes. Only weird thing is the missing eyeballs of Anna. It was kind of creepy at the beginning but I got used to it after minutes.

Sadly this game comes only with english audio but with several subtitles. Although I am not a native speaker I enjoy all my game in english. But if the developer is a german company I always switch to german audio because that is the language it has developed with. Nonetheless the english audio is very very good. The speaker made a great job. As a german speaker you may have some funny moments, when it comes to the pronounciation of some german words like "weisse frauen, hans, wunderhorn, etc."

Gameplay and Controls
Main inputdevice is the mouse. Well that's why it is called "Point&Click". Some elements can be controlled by your keyboard, like opening the inventory or showing interactive elements. But you don't have to use the keyboard at all. I played it completely with my mouse only.
Interactions are devided into use, look, open inventory, dialogs and special power.
For replay aspects you can skip every dialog by clicking with your mouse to skip the current sentence or hit escape on your keyboard to skip the conversation topic.

Achievements
This game is very easy to 100%. There are several story based achievements you will unlock during your normal playthrough. After finishing this you can replay every chapter to get the funny "side objectives". If you explore everything you may get some of them in your first playthrough.


Overall I give this title a solid 9/10. I would give it a 10 if it would come with german audio and multiple endings.

I'm going to provide a lightly detailed pros and cons section followed by a conclusion for this game.

Pros
  • Anna's Quest has modern conveniences for adventure games including double clicking to move to another screen instantly and a way to skip the more interactive puzzles. I'm very grateful for both of them. You can also save at will, skip text if you read much faster than the characters voice act, and press ESC to skip entire conversations (extremely useful when going through the same conversation again, but not needing to read the entire thing).
  • The story and the characters. I like the themes and the world presented in this game. I like how the characters grow or are given depth. I rather not say too much about the plot, but I found it to be very enjoyable, somewhat somber, and a bit dark.
  • The different kinds of humor here. A lot of the humor was somewhat dark, especially with some of the situations Anna finds people in, but there are also plenty of silly happenings in there. A little girl with telekinesis is a good recipe for mischief.
  • The difficulty felt just right with about 95% of the puzzles. It was a fairly consistent experience for me which let me tackle the game at a good pace.
  • The art style that they chose to go along with the kind of story they have makes the experience a bit more interesting while keeping things from becoming too severe.

Cons
  • The voice acting seems fine. I definitely preferred some characters over others. I didn't mind the little girl voice that much for the protagonist. I did notice some uneven recording quality though which can be a little distracting, but I was mostly reading and clicking unless it was a voice I really liked. It's not all over the place, but I thought I'd point it out.
  • There was one interactive puzzle that didn't make that much sense to me in the first half of the game. I used the skip function instead of trying to solve it. I'm not sure that particular puzzle was designed well since it would have had me write something down which you don't have to do anywhere else in the game.
  • There was a section in chapter five that had some really illogical solutions to a puzzle chain. It didn't make very much sense and would require you to believe the characters involved had no brains in their skulls. That was the only string of puzzles that made me angry.

Note: Some areas or items need to be "activated" via dialogue or discovery somewhere else which makes sense since you didn't know you needed it before. Otherwise you'd be carrying a bunch of garbage with you. Just pointing this one out. All your items will have a purpose.

I like this game enough to give it a recommendation. It does many things well, but my favorite thing about it would be the story and the humor. I'd take this over Deponia every single day of the week.

Daedalic Entertainment did it again, yet another perfect point & click adventure.

I wanted to finish the game before I write review, but I overestimated my skills, meaning puzzles will keep you busy for period of time :)

As for graphic and sound, they are beautiful and most enjoyable, story is fun as much as can be.

I really do not have anything negative to write about this game, it is perfect.

If you are in point & click adventures, you must own this.
