Hmmm, can't get to the site, was the address spelt correctly? (Well I see that at least a 'l' is missed from silver, but still no dice)

Was the game made with AGS?

Yep, it's AGS. It's not entirely accessible because of the slashdot effect.
It combines the effort, art and music from a number of highly expected indie games, that have decided to team up to stand a better chance.

Sorry, my datacenter seems to be experiencing difficulties (yes, datacenter, not server) so the main site is down.

The techs are working on the issue and the site should be up anytime now. I haven't slept and it's dawn so I'm sleeping now that I know the techs are working on it.

Keep checking the url above too because the site is really pretty!

Hmmm...

 Sorry to sound picky here, but I have a couple of questions.

1) What exactly IS this game?

2) Why can't you compress it? (Not WinZip, WinRar. Seriously, it get's files twice as small as .zip :) )

1) What exactly IS this game?

Check the website. A number of indie games were struggling to get enough art/music/coding done so decided to team up.

Nah, ARJ rul3s! Seriously though, MP3s don't compress well in any algorithm, and many AGS internal things are already compressed.

*spoilerish hint*








There's a useful object somewhere in the game that might be able to give you hints if you talk to it.

[edit] Oh shit. This is Swift, trying to reply but wound up replying under Radiant's name instead of replying as a guest. For some reason this forum thinks I'm logged in as him! What on earth is going on?

The link left out the "L" in "silversphinxstudios". :)  Insert the "L" in "Silver" and you'll get to the site just fine.

I got to the website & it looked fine.  Some things confuse me, though.  This Heroes game seems to be the only project in the can.  Did you just abandon King's Quest 3?  Was it a smokescreen until you "ironed-out" the merger?

What's the story?

Quest For Infamy has been merged with Hero of Infamous Kingdoms - We did use one screen BASED On a KQ3 screen - but we hopefully plan to finish KQ3VGA sometime in the future - though it may be released as a SSS game, not an IA game.

This is a really interesting venture. I'm guessing when the name changes at the top bar it means that that was the project it was meant to be for, right?
The Tween Module now supports AGS 3.5.0!

Great game.  Got stuck on Riddle # 3 but enjoyed the game. Hope there is a sequel. :)
