quest for infamy 3For the most part we stick to crowdfunded games here at Cliqist, and don’t go into the territory of robots, light bulbs, books, and all the other categories available on Kickstarter and IndieGoGo.  The new campaign for a Quest For Infamy is unique though, and worth taking a look at.  After raising over $60,000 for their retro adventure game, Quest For Infamy, the team at Infamous Quests decided to take things to the next level.  Enter the Quest For Infamy Companion; an art book, hint book, strategy guide straight out of the 80’s.  It’s got an old-school style covers for both the soft cover and hard cover editions, lots of background info on the game, and even a red decoder window.  What’s the window for?  As you make your way through the book you’ll be given hints about various situations, unlike hint books these days the hints in here aren’t full answers.  To get the full answer you’ll have to pass the red decoder window over the obscured text to reveal what you want to know.  What happens if you lose the decoder window?  No worries, as a kid I used to get around similar problems by using a bottle of Cherry 7up, its red tint showed me what I needed to know, and provided a refreshing beverage when I grew parched.

quest for infamy 224 hours into its campaign, the Quest For Infamy Companion has already smashed its initial $5,000 goal.  While you check out the campaign be sure to take a look at the Quest For Infamy game, it’s nearing release.
