Indie developer Crystal Shard aims to capture the "spirit and atmosphere" of classic role-playing games like Sierra's Quest for Glory series with its pixel-art adventure Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok.
The Herald of Ragnarok's female protagonist must save the world from vengeful demigods through exploration, puzzle-solving and traditional RPG skill progression mechanics. Players can customize the heroine's look as well as her job class and available abilities.
"The game is designed in the spirit and atmosphere of the classics, and strives to have the same high quality of art, music, and plot," reads the description on the game's official page. "With multiple character classes and several solutions to many puzzles, the game will have excellent replayability."
The Herald of Raganrok also features full voice acting and has been made in Adventure Game Studio. The title is free to download for Windows PC now and is expected to launch for Mac and Linux in spring 2014.
