The Game
City Quest is a classic Point and Click adventure game about a small town farmer that comes to the big city to make his dreams come true. On his way to great success, he'll solve puzzles, meet and converse with shady individuals, and make many poor decisions, often resulting in violent low resolution death.

The Storylines

City Quest has four main stories you can follow through the game.

  • Hobo: Live the exciting life of a street urchin! Eat Garbage! Panhandle! Sleep in the trash!
  • Lady/Lad of the Night: Make new "friends"! Sell your body! Fight the oppressive pimp overlords!
  • Mafioso: Bust some kneecaps! Rise up in the family! Or maybe even become an informant!
  • Politician: Join the Rat Party! Make shady deals! Slime your way to the top!

The Gameplay

City Quest is a classic Point and Click adventure game. You will be, as one might expect, doing much pointing and clicking.

The interface consists of several highly revolutionary interface elements to streamline your experience in a way not seen since the mid nineties.

  • Walk: In an extremely accurate model of the human body, in this game you use your feet to move around the environment.
  • Look: Experience the big city through the eyes of a bumpkin. Join in his wonder and confusion at all of the modern conveniences that we take for granted.
  • Touch: Put your hands on things! This is our catch-all for touching things, using things, generally interacting with objects in the world. Make everything filthy with your grubby hands!
  • Mouth: We use the "mouth" icon to mean anything that you do with your mouth. This means "eat", "talk", "lick"... anything that you do with your mouth.
  • Inventory: Throughout your travels in the city you will collect quite a bit of... well, junk. We have created, mostly through witchcraft, a sort of bag that will hold all the things you manage to collect. We call it an "inventory", catchy, right?

Use these key elements to explore a detailed world, solve puzzles, mince words with all manner of unsavory characters, and finally, suffer the consequences of your own poor choices. There are lots of funny ways to get into trouble in this game, but we have made it our utmost priority to have this be reasonably painless for you as a player. We really want you to explore the world! It's fun to find new things, but not at the expense of losing you progress.

In general, we strive to remain as true to the old games as possible without completely throwing out decades of gaming advancements.
