DestinyQuest Infinite: Act 1 is a new project by QuestForge, based on a 600-page book by Michael J. Ward. While QuestForge hopes to create more “gamebooks,” they’ve currently only (nearly) finished the first act. This book is a choose-your-own-adventure with RPG elements; you can level up, collect loot, get new weapons and upgrade, and you get a variety of quests to complete. Any machine that has a browser (either Chrome or Firefox is recommended – it doesn’t work very well on Internet Explorer) will be able to run the game.
Adventure Cow, the browser platform on which the game will be playable, started as an emailed adventure story, with people able to choose their own path and have the next part of the story emailed to them on a weekly basis. When it was discovered how popular a concept this was, QuestForge decided to make it accessible to a larger audience by creating online games. There will be 3 acts to DestinyQuest Infinite, and the first act will be available for purchase before the end of the year, though you will be able to purchase all three acts as a pre-order soon.
To find out more about the game and story, head over to the QuestForge website, “like” their Facebook, or follow them on Twitter. You can sign up to find out when DestinyQuest Infinite: Act 1 will be available.
Act 1 will cost $4.99, and pre-ordering the three acts together will cost $14.99. [Updated 11/7/2014: The prices listed on the official website are not final, as they will be running a Kickstarter-like soft launch in the future.]
Stay tuned for a preview, soon!
