Order of the Thorne: The King’s Challenge from Infamous Quests (Quest for Infamy) takes place in the mystical realm of Uir. As lute-playing songsmith Finn the Bard, you’ll join a competition held by the King to find his missing Queen.

Finn takes up this challenge in order to gather information on which to base his greatest song. His lute-playing ability will also come in handy for solving puzzles and completing tasks.

The game will employ the same pixel graphics style as Quest for Infamy. It will feature a point-and-click interface, hand-drawn backgrounds, 2D pixel art animation, hand-painted character portraits and a fully orchestrated soundtrack.

The King’s Challenge for Windows, Mac and Linux is the first in a planned anthology revolving around Order of the Thorne and the world of Uir. The game has been Greenlit and will launch January 26th on Steam, GoG, Humble and the Infamous Quests Online Store.

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.
