Story:

Elliot can’t die--but he’s still running out of time. In Elliot Quest, the victim of a rare curse must find a cure before he’s transformed into a demon.

After Elliot’s wife disappears, he falls sick and attempts to take his own life--only to discovers that he can’t die. Plagued by nightmares and growing weaker by the day, Elliot seeks out a local Sage, who tells him that he’s the victim of a rare curse. A demon called a Satar is slowly consuming Elliot’s vitality.

If Elliot can’t find a cure for the curse before it’s too late, he will become a Satar himself. His only hope is to ask for the help from one of the island’s Guardians, who have kept the Satar from taking over Urele. Elliot can’t die--but he’s still running out of time.

Developing Elliot Quest is a lot of work! A month ago, we released an alpha version of Elliot Quest and have already seen a ton of fan support at www.indiegamestand.com and the “Steam Greenlight” program. Now we want to make sure that Elliot Quest is a satisfying experience with tons of secrets and challenging gameplay. Additional support will allow us to: 

  • Polish the game and add more dungeons, bosses, and secret areas 
  • Pay our bills, Kickstarter fees, and collaborators
  • Software licenses, hardware costs, and other necessary things to complete the game.
  • Make sure Elliot Quest is on as many consoles and players as possible.

Ansimuz Games was started by me (Luis Zuno). I’ve been a web designer and developer since 1999. Before I started Elliot Quest, I made a small puzzle-platform game where you control a pink jelly creature -- http://gamejolt.com/games/puzzle/slimer/12647/. But Elliot Quest is the game I always wanted to make. Over the course of Elliot Quest’s development, however, several people have showed their interest in the game and offered to help out. Now Ansimuz games consists of collaborators from Mexico, the United States, and Canada!

Risks and challenges

Unlike a lot of Kickstarter campaigns, Elliot Quest is already over 70% complete. The additional funding we raise at Kickstarter will let us spend more time creating tons of secret areas and challenges, just as in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
