In desperation, the jarl of Jarnvidr has called for a Heroine, to stand against the forces of frost and put an end to the lasting winter. Her might, sorcery, and cunning may be humanity’s last resort. Are you up to the task, or will you die trying? Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok is an adventure / RPG hybrid. Like in many adventure games, you have a world to save, and must use your wit, guile and inventory to puzzle your way through. Like in many roleplaying games, you can customize your character with various classes and skills, and must train yourself in combat to stand a chance against the fierce monsters in your way. 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. With multiple character classes and several solutions to many puzzles, the game will have excellent replayability.

Dear fans,

For over a decade, Crystal Shard has created freeware adventure games (e.g. A Tale of Two Kingdoms), action puzzle games (such as SubTerra) and most famously the adventure RPG Heroine's Quest: The Herald of Ragnarok. These games are completely free; they are a labor of love that we enjoy sharing with the world, and to us they're literally priceless.

It's up to you how much, and you can cancel at any time; this is to support us in creating more quality computer games. In return, we will give nice rewards to our patrons, such as monthly online design sessions, beta access, or even your own cameo in a future game.​

Any way to download the 1.2 version without using Steam or is the Steam version same as standalone 1.1 version but rebranded for steam release?

Hi Petrell,

You can download v1.2 from the Screen7 website; direct link is: Screen7.co.uk

I believe we will put v1.2.1 up here, when it is ready.

Hi there,

I suggest you download v1.2 for now (the difference between v1.2 and v1.2.1 is very minor). Save games will be compatible across these two versions.

We will get the latest version on here eventually, but I'm not sure when exactly. It's definitely later than I expected.

better than any Adv / RPG game lately ...
I can feel the love from many people in making this game ...
and as fans of QFG and KQ, this game strike deep in my taste ...

few skill Like Herbalist, and Animal Ken get an odd end ...
(since the implementation is kinda few)

but all in all, it's a GREAT game ...
need more Adv / RPG in this world ...

A faithful and high-quality homage to the Quest for Glory series. This game features excellent and mostly logical object puzzles, rich NPC interaction, well-executed RPG elements and a lot of exploration. Highly recommended!
