„The Quest Giver“ is a 2D Fantasy guildmanager simulation, in which you create your own quests and send heroes to go do them. The fun comic artstyle supports the game’s humorous and parodistic atmosphere.
Why always play the hero, risking his life for a few lousy items? It’s time to change perspective and become the quest giver. Now it’s your turn to let the heroes do all sorts of tasks for you. Let them discover new areas and fight a variety of monsters and fiends.
You decide what needs to be done! Need something gathered, hunted or even protected? Your call!
Where will they need to go? What do they get as a reward? Who gets to do the quest? It’s all in your hands now!

How does that work?
The Quest Giver plays a lot like a Point and Click game. You switch from scene to scene and click on objects to make things happen. It’s a slow-paced, relaxing game, in which you can take your time to investigate, think, and decide. Also noteworthy is that the game is not helping you (the player) in any way.
This means the game will not restrict you in your decisions, will not help you with possible options, or generally „do stuff“ for you.
We wanted the player to have the full experience of how much work it is to be a Quest Giver and through how much effort an NPC (Non-Player-Character) goes, to give you a reasonable quest. (NPCs are people too!)
This motto also goes for the process of creating a quest. You will have to select a number of quest parameters, like a quest target (be it fiend, or item, or else),
a quest location, and some other things, and decide for yourself whether or not these parameters make sense.
Once you’ve selected all the necessary options the quest will be created and given a randomly generated description and name matching your selected quest parameters.
Sounds complicated? Don’t worry. It’s not that bad. We just wanted to make sure the player has enough possibilities. Once you get the hang of it, you will be a quest giving master in no time.
For every created quest adventurers will apply and it’s up to you to decide who gets to have all the fun. The adventurers will come with different classes, attributes and traits.
Next to creating quests you will have to manage and upgrade your guild hall, gather information on fiends and regions,
and stock up your inventory with rewards and materials.
Doing all this will increase your guild level, unlock new adventurer classes, and give you enough possibilities to eventually defeat the great evil threatening the world.
