A Quest to Far, a.k.a. “I’m too old for this”

Review #19 – Free Video Game

A Quest to Far, a.k.a. “I’m too old for this”

Most of us remember the old police chief announcing his retirement on his introduction to the movie, only to die a few minutes later. Now you can play that character!

Ok, let’s get serious. A Quest to Far is a roguelike where you take the role of a veteran adventurer braving his last dungeon to save his grand children. The twist is you already have the experience, so in this game you don’t get stronger. Here, the only way is down.

You begin the game with an inventory full of magic items, and monsters don’t really stand a chance against you. But as time goes by, you tire. Your joints give up. All this armor and stuff start to seem heavier. In the end, everything becomes a burden.

Dare you push your limits on this last delve? A Quest to Far is an interesting change from the classic roguelikes, choosing to focus on decay instead of growth. See for yourself.

  1. How great! I'm downloading it now. I love RLs, and I'm actually programming one now. They're fun to play, and extra fun to make!

    1. It is great!

      The "devolving" idea used here is really cool twist. Hope you enjoy!
