ToyQuest: The Lost and Found From Developer Hiker Games Finds Its Way to Greenlight

Okay, so this isn’t exactly an adventure game. But who can resist a world of nightmares from one’s childhood?

Metaphorically speaking, ToyQuest is a Metroidvania-style action platformer about the monster under your bed and the one in your closet. You know, those scary things from childhood.

You’ll become Brand, an action figure that’s come to life. On a quest to save your owner Felix from impending darkness, you’ll be plunged into a nightmare world in which toys are alive and not always friendly. 

Explore Felix’s house and confront the darkness armed only with household items. In order to prevail, you must solve the house’s mysteries while fending off hoardes of nasty toys. The game has over 300 of ’em.

Phuong Vu, founder of developer Hiker Games: “ToyQuest: The Lost and Found takes the scary dreams we all had to deal with as kids and turns them into a fluid, imaginative platformer with roguelike elements. It plays like many of the games we enjoyed growing up, but with beautiful graphics and sound.”

ToyQuest: The Lost and Found will be released later this year for Windows and Mac.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
