Title: Quest for Glory fan projects
Post by: Blake00 on March 23, 2013, 07:03:43 AM
Hey guys! :)

Figured now that the old AGDI forums are slowing down now that people have moved here I should probably move my list here too as along with our old fans there are new ones here too, and new fans bring new information!

For details on what and why I made this the old thread is over at AGDI here (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=41948.0), but basically I created a Quest for Glory section on my website paying tribute to the original QFG games and the great many successful and unsuccessful QFG related fan projects out there to make sure that we never forget them and that talented QFG fans are inspired to create new QFG projects in the future. To do this I created a list on the website and collected pics, vids, demos, and information for as many of them as possible.

This is my latest summary of the website list below.

(Note: Originally built in 2001 this website is still deliberately very late 90s early 2000s retro in design. So if you're not nostalgic for old retro websites with music, animating gifs & left click browsing then you probably won't like it)

- Hero-U (New series of games from QFG creators the Coles themselves)

Glad to meet you. Just wanted you to know that I love your site. When I saw the thread, my first thought was "hey, we should add the info from that QfG site I love so much"...and then I realized it looked very similar already.

Title: Attention Heroes: Writers Wanted!
Post by: robertkety on November 18, 2014, 02:12:50 PM
Thought I'd spread the word. We're looking for some creative talent to help us mold the main plot of Hero6.  Here is a reproduction of our announcement on the Hero6.org forums:
We have finally reached the point where a majority of our code has been standardized, organized, and Vasilis-ized! A big thanks to bdimopoulos and ChamberOfFear for their work on that.
So, where are we at now?
We still have some modules that need to be refactored or replaced entirely, but we're prepared to develop these separately during the next phase of development... the story.
That's right Heroes, the core creative element of Hero6 is ready for molding! We're looking for contributors to review the existing story-line and make improvements. This document is the wellspring from which all further development will flow. It needs to be:
In-depth and detailed
Cohesive and themed
Fun and entertaining!
To clarify, we are not looking for puzzles, side-quests, or subplots. Those will come later. What we need is akin to a game design document. We're taking a story-based approach so the design document (shared below) will be a combination of a backstory and a main storyline that will unfold as the game is played.
What's next?
This is an exciting time for Hero6. What we develop in the coming months will model the final outcome of this long-awaited adventure game.
We anticipate a greater interest during the creative development of the main story line. So far, production is running along smoothly, but the combination of several creative interests can be a source of conflict. Hero6 has certainly experienced this conflict in the past. Rest assured, ChamberOfFear and myself are committed to resolving any conflict, should it occur.
Where can I get started?
Here! (http://goo.gl/P0igWR) The document is under revision control so feel free to add, edit, or comment.

Happy new year guys! :) It's been a while but I've been working on my site and have made the following additions to the QFG related games list.

New QFG related projects added:
Quest For Glory IV 3D – Massive new section! My total conversion mod for ZDoom Hexen taking you on a 3D action packed adventure in Mordavia.
QFG6: Hero’s Legend – Full tribute page created! Creator of QFG2.5D is working on a 3D QFG sequel based in Silmaria & Tarna.
Quest for Glory I Extended Edition – Full tribute page created! QFG1 remake with many new areas (eg open mountain pass like in QFG4.5).

Changes made to existing QFG content:
General – Contents menu added.
General – All back buttons changed to utilise HTML bookmarks. Now users don’t have to re-scroll down the entire page constantly! :)
General – Fixed some missing slashes in code.
Heroism: The Art of DeFence – New HD screenshots and GREATLY enhanced demo now available.
Quest for 3D – New awesome screenshots of his amazing realistic recreation of Spielburg.
Destiny: The Lost Soul – FINALLY the long lost demo has been found & made available by the Hero6 team!
Quest for Infamy (classic) – Finally found the original Brigand theme song I used to use (forgot it was also hero selection track), now the original 2010 tribute page is finally truly restored.

As always, let me know if something is missing. :)
