Party Quest: Never Go It Alone

by ScreamRawr - Jam Entry

"Party Quest: Never Go It Alone" is in the style of a classic top-down RPG. You play as one of three different classes and embark on a great journey to save the Kingdom of Ludum from the domesticated pest that has plagued the land. But wait, you are alone! You must find a suitable party of warriors before you can save the land! Good luck!

The game looked interesting to play with nice graphics by the screenshots, but i just can't install it, always gives me an error saying i need Microsoft XNA Framework Content Pipeline V4 installed on GAC (Note, i do have XNA framework V4.0 installed). Another thing worth mentioning, installers aren't really recommended unless they're really needed (dunno in this case).

Ah! Yeah, sorry about that. We had some problems with tue link before but it's all fixed now! And sorry about tue install but please give it a try! :D And thank you for the comment about the graphics.

Well, i got it to install and work properly now (redownloaded), but the game just keeps crashing whenever i talk to someone after the merchant (to ask where to get coins).
Because of that, i was unable to progress any further than that, tried 3 times.
Aside from that, the presentation and graphics are really good and the gameplay, although i didn't had a chance to try it out much, looked fun. Really wished i could continue to play the game, but that crash just didn't let me.

Very funny! Great graphics. Smooth movement. Collision a bit off. Those kittens are dangerous!

It made me laugh (which is rare in this LD so far), but it was pretty annoying that I had to restart whole game when I tried to play with too many kittens :/

Very funny game ^^ I gotta say I ragequitted when I died trying to return with my 100 gold :( But I might try it again later!
I wonder why this isn't rated much? Imho it's better than much other games having >20 rates. :D

Lovely game, the start screen and the menus in game make it look very finished and polished! But Why did I have to kill all those kittens? :-(

I found it a bit weird that getting hit by kittens increase your kitten score... is that a feature that got scrapped up in the last minute?

Cheers, and thanks for the game!

It was a very good game! I really like RPGs.

This is a funny take on the theme! I thought the character dialogs and the rock were great. I like how even the opening menu integrated the theme/joke! Gameplay was smooth and graphics were pleasant. Wish there was music in this one.

I was a bit annoyed that I couldn't skip some of the earlier parts after dying. I tried to walk straight to the sewer entrance and gave a frustrated sigh when I realized that I had to run around town talking to everybody again.

Anyway, great game!

Hah, this was pretty awesome!

Rock surely has the most depth of any rpg character concieved, well done there.

Gameplay was tight and satisfying.

You need more rocks Make A Game. haha. Thanks for playing! And thank you Stargoat! We're really glad that you enjoyed our game! :D

Haha, great job on this one, very nice all around. Really it just needs catchy chiptune music and it would be golden. Aside from that though, combat was fun despite being simple, the humor was snappy (i smirked at the skyrim joke), etc. I don't know if I agree with the use of inertia in movement but it didn't matter too much to me. I appreciated the objective bar at top; that's definitely nice for LD-type games. And overall just nice job making something polished! :)

Great job.
Its a lot of fun, and the jokes just keep coming.

Jan 8, 2012 @ 5:37pm

Very cool concept. I killed an awful lot of kittens to get where I am today...

Also, +1 for medieval rollerskates on characters' walk cycles :)

Enjoyed it!

Any chance for an OSX / Unix version?

ScreamRawr says ...

@demonpants Thank you for your interest in the game, but we wrote it in XNA and as far as I know there is no easy way to port to OSX / Unix. Sorry :(
