About this project

Barlagg's Quest is a mobile designed classical old school RPG based on the greatest RPG games on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. 

Using an Active Time Battle (ATB) system, our wish is to bring you back to the best RPG memories on your Android and iOS mobile devices and on Mac and PCs.

The needed funds are to cover the purchase of mobile devices to test our game in multiple environments. To that, we must add the fees to cover the converting of the game in an full android and iOS game with no web server needs through expansion files.

Note that every rewards above "Buy us some juice" provides a free copy of our Android version of the game at its release date.

Barlagg's Quest is being created by Patrick Tremblay, who is an award-winning novel writter and an old school RPG fan. With the help of his 9 years old son, Christopher, and his 10 years old daughter, Amelie, they are making their wish come true, through Solarfun Games family branding studio, creating their own video game!

With the help of young author and "The Legends of Terra" novel writer Christian Buffalo, they are creating an epic story that will be set in an open world with a main scenario and multiple quests, various monsters, epic loots, easter eggs and hidden treasures.

An awesome soundtrack is offered with the game as well as a great song named "I'll be there", special thanks to french canadian rock band Mercury City. 

This RPG is built like the greatest hits from the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) with an Active Time Battle (ATB) System that will remind you of awesome games like Final Fantasy VI.

Some areas in the game looks like real geeky places from Quebec City like "La Planque des jeux vidéos" and "Restaurant-bar LvlOp" designed in an all-medieval aspect. We also added some extra characters based on these places.

Barlagg's Quest is estimated to take at least 20 hours to play the scenario completely in its first chapter. 

Sidequests, finding all easter eggs and hidden treasures should add an extra 20 hours. 

You heard it right! Barlagg's Quest is having more than one game in plan. 

The first chapter, Barlagg's Quest - The Dark Forest will be released before the end of 2017. 

The next chapter, Barlagg's Quest - The Stormy Plains, should be available a year after the release of the first chapter. 

And, finally, Barlagg's Quest - The Collapsing Worlds, should be released a year after the second chapter. 

Actually, we are hoping to have backers to help us launch the first chapter. We do not intend on needing that much for the next chapters since all the basics will be the same but with improvements, making sure the player feels like the next chapters are an expansion to the first one.

A thousand years ago, the world was attacked by hords of monsters, fierce fiends and magical creatures. 

A hero, named Tass, sealed a dark portal in an abandonned temple of Mount Novalon, preventing the forces of evil from invading the kingdom.

Now, dark clouds are gathering above the peak of Mount Novalon and monsters are growing stronger and scarier in its surrounding.

Scouts has been sent to the abandoned temple to see if the portal has been reopened, but none came back...

Barlagg's Quest is the story of Barlagg, a 16 years-old young man living in the kingdom of Caerilan in the castle of Kastlegard who is training to become a Monster Hunter and a Royal Knight.

Many things have been thought for the game for it to be nice, cool, easy and, of course, old school. For this, we developped the game with :

Risks and challenges

We wish to make sure to deliver the game in the first week of december 2017. As well, we will make sure to ship t-shirts and physical copies of the game, CDs, Posters and others before release date so backers will be able to play the game at the same time as digital pack backers.
