Overview:

Welcome to the inhospitable Northland, where trolls and wolves stalk the night, and where you are just one thin cloak away from turning into an icicle.

Rumor has it that Jotnar, the frost giants, are on the loose, and that Fenrir the Devourer stirs in his sleep. Gossip says that eldritch Svartalf magic runs wild, and that trade caravans disappear. People curse the incessant cold and eye each other warily, one hand on their trusty axe. And Northlanders are not known for their even temper.

What the land needs is a Heroine, and she had better arrive now. Are you up to the task, or will you die trying?

The screenshots look great. I hope all the other aspects of the game will be as good. Good luck  ;D

Looks very true to the original Quest for Glory. Does the different sex allow for any different skills than the male hero had?

looks great!

you've obviously spent a lot of time studying the original QFG (vga version).

can we expect to see any characters or creatures from QFG?

There will be a few similar monsters. Frost Giant, as seen in QFG1... I don't know if you've heard of a Lindworm. It's essentially a Nordic version of the Wyvern, minus wings. There's so many monsters from Nordic mythology to draw on.

Can't really think of any female specific skills. So far, it's essentially the same skills as the usual hero.

Thanks for all the comments!  :)

*drools*

This looks amazing.  The screenshots are beautiful.   ;D

Quest For Glory is one of the favourite games.   :D

There's not too many games that have a female hero, to kudos to you for that.   :D

Oh wow-- I wish I didn't see this.  Now I'm going to be clicking on your website every few days hoping this gets released in an unrealistic amount of time. xD

Wicked graphics. I especially like the forest and Town scenes. Hopefully it will end up in a really atmospheric, engrossing game. Which I'm sure it will. :)

I'm really glad to know you're still in development with this.

Woah! What a surprise!!! I agree with Darth Mandarb. The screens are fantastic! I didn't believe you were working on this anymore. Hopefully, you'll be able to finish the game this year.
