About this project

Incrediquest™ is a linear based puzzle game that relies on manipulation of visual and audio clues, conducting research on the web, performing logical deductions and most importantly inherent resourcefulness, and creativity as you make your way through Dr. D. Ranged’s village "Incrediville" proving your worth as an heir to his fortune. 

Some puzzle topics those brave enough to enter Dr. D. Ranged's village will find: 

  • Science
  • Music,
  • Theater,
  • Law, 
  • Business, 
  • History, 
  • Geography,
  • Astronomy, 
  • Mythology,
  • Pop-culture, 
  • Literature 
  • and much, much, more!

 DEMO Instructions

1- In the demo all puzzles in the Concert Hall are deactivated except one. Find the one active puzzle.  

2- In a normal level you will need to find the key to open the locked red door. However, in the demo the key is automatically provided to you when you click on the active puzzle.  

3- Once you have the key use it on the red door to reveal a keypad.  

4- Use the clues provided in the active puzzle (and anything at your disposal) to come up with a one word solution.  

5- Enter the one word solution into the keypad behind the red door to see if you've solved the puzzle.

(Requires Adobe Acrobat 11; demo will not play on must tablet devices - playing the demo from a desktop computer is recommended)   

Try before you pledge! We are pleased to present you with a demo of one of the (easy-medium difficulty) puzzles in the concert hall area of the game! Just go to www.incrediquest.com click on the demo link and enter your name and email address. Good luck! The Supertron 9000 puzzle and other puzzles are disabled in the demo. Enjoy the demo – and we’d love to hear your feedback .

Some of the key game features include: 

  • Beautifully rendered 3D environments. 
  • Top-notch voice acting and original music. 
  • Unique, challenging and varied puzzles.
  • A potential cash prize awarded to the first person to solve all puzzles (*pending legal review). 

Incrediquest™ will be released initially for download in the IOS App store for iPad and as a web-based flash applet. Kickstarters will also have the option of receiving, as a reward, a USB flash drive with a special Kickstarter edition of the game pre-loaded with all game hints unlocked and special additional in-game content.

*PLEASE NOTE THAT EVEN FOR THE WEB OR USB VERSIONS OF THE GAME USERS WILL STILL NEED ACCESS TO THE IOS APP STORE IN ORDER TO DOWNLOAD NECESSARY (FREE) APPS TO SOLVE CERTAIN INCREDIQUEST PUZZLES. (SEE SUPERTRON 9000 PUZZLE EXPLANATION BELOW)

A game employing a similar puzzle style to Incrediquest™ called “notpron” has received over 16,000,000 views and counting since its launch and has enjoyed wide-spread popularity with all types of puzzle gamers. Incrediquest™ uses “notpron” style puzzles (as well as others) and weaves them into an interesting storyline and beautiful environment. In Incrediquest™ users will encounter: dexterity puzzles, similar to 7th Guest and 11th hour, where certain items may need to be arranged in a particular order or played according to a special sequence, manipulation puzzles where gamers will have to physically manipulate a picture, sound or other file to uncover clues necessary to solve the puzzle, research puzzles where users will have to thoroughly research a certain topic to solve the puzzle, deductive logic puzzles and more!

One puzzle contained in each level called the “Superton 9000” contained in a suitcase requires users to download an application external to Incrediquest™ at the IOS app store to solve the puzzle. The third-party app may be used to manipulate a physical file, contain a hint within the app, or the user may need to use the app to learn how to solve or play a certain type of puzzle or game. The suitcase puzzle is the first puzzle that must be solved in each level before the other puzzles in the area will be unlocked. The suitcase puzzle contains the key to unlock the door to the next area of the game- however behind the door is a heavy duty lock with a triple dead bolt lock- each dead bolt corresponds to one of the three puzzles in the room.
