AGS Panel Rating

Exceptional quality & depth, just look at the number of AGS awards it scooped and for good reason - Heroine's Quest is a fine addition to any collection and a stalwart game of good design, mechanics and fun gameplay.

Creamy: I came for the outstanding graphics. I stayed for the original game mechanic and quirky story. Oomla may save the world in 1 second but Honza creates awesome games in 3 weeks.

Heroine's Quest 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 role playing 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.

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?

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, the game has excellent replayability.

This is v1.2.4, updated as of june 2017. Available on Steam (main download link) and IndieDB (mirror).

The best game made with AGS. And probably one of the best adventure games of all times. I'm definitely going to buy their other games.

According to the stats it took me approx. 18hrs to complete. Although developers continue to push the boundaries of AGS, I really felt like this game was everything AGS originally set out to achieve. It has every fantasy adventure staple and more, for example, day & night cycle, weather, rpg style stats etc. It's quite an achievement and well worth a play... oh, and its free!

Looks absolutely amazing and I'm dying to launch it, but...

Do I have to register to that ridiculous junk site to download?
Do I have to INSTALL Steam to play???????

I was hoping to be a part of the game creation process once upon a time with this project and others. Alas, it was not to be. But it's far better without me mucking up the works anyway. I'm too amateur for such awesomeness. Lovely graphics , cool story , the puzzles are kinda annoying but that's just me. I'm not like other girls and can be very anti-puzzle. But , overall...fun game. Great game. And it's free! Thank you very much for all the hard work you all put into this. I love this game. I love you. I would pay for the next game you make but if you keep serving up things for free...that'd be awesome! You're awesome! I would love to see more games like this , especially with strong female protagonist. Please and thank you. *hugs and hi fives all around* Drinks and snacks on me.
