Order of the Thorne
Order of the Thorne is an anthology series about a group of Knights and Monks who are charged with doing good and keeping evil forces contained. Each game will have a different protagonist but is set within the same world of Uir, a world of fairys, elves, dwarves, knights and all the fairy tale mythology we grew up with. "Long ago, in the time before time began, the great realm of Uir prospered under the guardianship of the benevolent order of knights who protected and guided the people of its many kingdoms. These knights were known as "The Order of the Thorne". The price of peace is not so easily won, for where there is good, evil is not far behind. These are the stories of the Knights and their many adventures."

The King's Challenge
Finn the Bard sat strumming his lute in the corner of an old tavern. When word of The King's Challenge reached him, Finn finally knew what his destiny would be. He packed his lute, his father's magic book of songs and his clothes and left for the realm of the Fairy Folk. Once every ten years, the King of the Fairy Realm issues a call for the best and brightest of his subjects and now seven have answered. This year's challenge, while quite simple in concept, should prove to be most taxing and adventurous for the challengers. The Queen has volunteered to be hidden somewhere in the land, until a champion can find her. The prize for finding the Queen is the same as it ever was; The champion will win the right to one wish from the King, whatever is within His power to grant, and the title of "Champion of the Fairy Realm".

Progress and Design
This game has been in production for a long while and we're nearly finished. I hesitate to put a percentage on it, but the heavy lifting is done and the game is fully playable in alpha from start to end.

320x200 Resolution
Fully voiced (and recorded in a professional studio)
2D pixel art
Modern interface - optimised for tablets
PC/MAC/Linux

Release Date
We're currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds needed to finish the game. You can find it at

The game will be released by November 2015. Yes, this year! This isn't a Kickstarter campaign that the release date is off in the never-never, you'll be playing this before Christmas.

Congrats :-D you got my back! This turned me 10 20 years back 8-)

Thanks! It's certainly inspired by fairy tales and good old-fashioned Knights in shining armor stories. I'm sure you'll love it.

I just want to add that I'm really excited to be working on these games; especially in The King's Challenge - Finn uses his Lute, and you as they player, get to play it to cast spells and solve puzzles.  Anything musical in the design is fun for me - but I have been asked this question before, "If I don't play with sound, can I still play?" and the answer is "yes". So it'll work for anyone who wants to play it, with or without sound.

Yeah.  I love AGS, and I love that people keep working on it to improve and bring it's compatibility to new platforms. There's lots of talented people working on the engine all the time.  We're lucky.

I know its off topic, at least a bit (Sorry Darth), but I need to ask here, as I think, many players of QFI would like to know.
Will there be a QFI2?? And I don't mean Roehm to ruin....

Kings Challange looks very nice, but I'd love to see what happens next Roehm... And the cliffhanger at the end....

Most likely! We certainly have a lot of good stories to tell about Mr Roehm! QFI2 is on the cards, but it won't be this year! Roehm to Ruin is more a prequel than sequel!
