Worlds Quest is a brand new game currently in soft development by my company Regal Computer Services.

Worlds Quest will be an Online Browser Based Role Playing Game developed using an old school top-down 2d graphic vibe.

It will be huge in scope, spanning hundreds of hours of content with additional re-playable elements and things to do to keep you coming back for more.

Worlds Quest will be compatible with the leading Browsers, as well as playable through most modern smartphone browsers and tablet devices.

Furthermore after the game is completed an Offline version of the game will be created allowing you to take your online characters and level them up offline, or host your own (limited playerbase) version for others to connect and enjoy the fun.

The main purpose of seeking this funding is to acquire additional funds to develop art assets and content to complete this project.

Planned features:

  • Multiplayer
  • Large 100 tile by 100 tile areas with multiple levels.
  • Game Expands to Fill your Device Window
  • Player Housing
  • Groups and Guilds
  • Tens of Thousands of Item Combinations
  • High level cap.
  • Hundreds of quests.
  • Chat
  • Resource Gathering and Crafting
  • Player vs Player Combat (optional and opt-in)
  • No set classes, build your own class by your actions and spending skill points.
  • Pets (Combat and other varieties)
  • Player run shops.
  • Free to Play (No Advertising)
  • Extras Shop to spend money for bonuses and rewards.
  • and more ...


About the Story 

Your world is on the cusp of peace. After a 20 year war which neither side seemed willing to concede a newly formed council of noted war heroes and elders brokered a settlement between the two sides.

The leaders from both sides were called to ratify the treaty at the ruins of the City of Ancient Ones.

The treaty summit was a week ago and neither leader nor their party of warriors has been seen since.

A scout party sent to investigate found no trace of the missing leaders, but did discover a strange runic symbol carved into the gate of the City.

Now with both sides blaming the other, it is time for someone to rise and discover what has happened to the missing rulers and what trouble that strange runic symbol may mean ....

You start the game as no one important, your destiny not yet written. You could say you hold the pen and the ink in your hand and you alone can write the path you will choose.

Participate in the story, uncover clues, take quests and solve the many riddles to find answers or journey across the lands doing whatever pleases you.

About the Races

The world in which you live is somewhat similar to earth, although it is filled with magic and mayhem.

Races will likely deviate from Humans and Elves to a degree but no firm details on races are available.

About the Classes

There are no Classes. We don't like to bracket someone into being the stereotypical tank or the healer dude. We want to let them choose a handful of skills to start out and then be able to unlock new skills and master the ones they have as they keep playing.

Of course for those who want to use "classical" skills there will be a template system that allows you to choose say the Healer build and it will auto-pick the suggested skills. Allowing you to customize the selection.

Special Features

Crafting and Gathering will play a part in the game, it is unlikely to be required. But for those that choose the path of a Crafter or Gatherer you may find the benefits are well worth it.

Housing will be available with various sizes and configurations of houses available. Interiors will be able to be customized to a degree. Houses will not be able to be broken into as they will be made using magic locks.

Pets will be available in various forms, from the cute kind intended to act as nothing more than eye candy, to the kind that defends or attacks for you.

Stores and Shops will be available for rent allowing you to sell your wares.

The game will never be the same again!

Risks and challenges

Starting a project like this is never easy ... however I have been developing online games for over 12 years now. I have lived through some major tragedies as well as had some major high points and met some amazing people.

Over the years over 100,000 people have experienced games produced by myself under the Forlorn Games Studio heading.

I love interacting with my players, and go 110% when it comes to completing and supporting the products I make.
