If you want to know whatís going on behind WonderQuest production, take a look here!

Iím currently finishing level 10, the VOLCANO level:

This is one of its toughest rooms:

I am seeking for pictures of faces for the characters. If you want to contribute, it would be just great. One rule:

It must be Royalty-free. I want all the art in this game to be according the law. This is the way I like to work.

If you want to send your picture itís ok, if you think you look like one character send me the pic, and your face will be in the game. ;)

Feel free to post comments.

I will release it only when i finish the first 15 levels. I'm also depending on some help for sprites, sound, pics, etc.. A few sprites need to be changed because I'm not 100% sure they are Royalty-free.

Might there be some sort of way for people who have finished the first 4 levels to skip them?

Just wondering.

maybe an option to keep the old player, but then again, if the first levels are changed/jokes removed.

I think this version you guys are playing is too hard for beginners, so I introduced two new levels. One between the first and second, (The ballís level is now the third level). And another between the third and fourth level. The Priest level is now the sixth one.

Itís more acceptable to have the priest rooms on the sixth stage, because they are very hard. Also, the beginning of the game will change a bit.

A good rule about the difficulty is to have a relatively easy beginning, for casual players not to give up, and a very challenging game from the sixth level on, where any player, including newbies, have already mastered the controls.

Hi,

All I want to say: 40 Rooms to go! One Level and a half. Most known bugs are fixed, graphics and gameplay improved, new and better sounds. Iím really close to the end.

The beginning of the game is now changed with new easier levels for casual players.

Four new Screenshots:

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a109/wonderquest/WonderQuest/WQ14.jpg

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a109/wonderquest/WonderQuest/WQ13.jpg

If anyone wants to see all WQ pics go to:
http://photobucket.com/albums/a109/wonderquest/

The game will be released with the first three chapters ( first 15 Levels ) soon.

Thanks for every singe email I received of people trying to help. Keep sending them. You guys and girls are great.

Please post comments, they make the pain Iím feeling in my neck worth of it!

Anyone from Australia?

Iím beginning the last level; I want someone to help me to choose the aborigine name. For now itís Cahil, but I want a new full name for him. Is being a lot of fun to design the boomerang levels.

Post here or send me by email.

Iím done with the levels. 1 campaign, 400 rooms, 475600 tiles and finally 273.945.600 pixels of puzzle gaming! (I wish I could sell these pixels). Now weíll test it all, rework the difficulty curve to make it suitable for any player, take care of the details, and then upload it.

The game has changed a lot, comparing with the beta version available. Itís much better.

The main goal now is to make it easier in the beginning for casual gamers, and very hard in the end.

The last levels are a really tough challenge.

Iíll also begin to write the text scrolls.

:w00t

Game finished.
All I need now is someone to revise the script for me
(6 pages), and then import the text in WQ editor. Anyone Interested, send me a PM with your email. I'll try to upload the game until tonight.

Rock and Roll!

I think fifteen minutes doesn't hurt anyone Bombadil. ;)

I'm still waiting, it's just a 25 minutes job and then release it.
