Haven't stumbled upon Melon Quest before and have no idea what it is? Here's what you need to know:

The game

Slay foes, traverse dimensions & eat melon, as you explore a huge seamless world in Melon Quest. A fast-paced RPG platformer adventure.

Play as a cute, underpants-wearing dimensional traveller on a quest to retrieve the annual melon harvest stolen from Nelom, the Melon King. Melon Quest is a fast paced, action-packed RPG platformer that takes place in a vast seamless world, filled with cute but disturbing creatures and terrifying bosses to slay. Explore, collect loot, craft items, take on quests, earn achievements, and combat enemies with an array of skills, buffs and debuffs.

Melon Quest is currently in early stages of development. Everything you see here is pre-alpha!


New gameplay video

Enjoy an extended look into gameplay in the Mountains from the Melon Quest pre-alpha gameplay demo as showcased at AVCon 2015.

Haven't already seen our AVCon demo highlights video? Witness the tutorial and highlights from the Melon Quest pre-alpha gameplay demo as showcased at AVCon.

Narration is humorously performed by Aaron 'Maz' Nassau, Youtube content creator & Independent short film maker. You can check out some of his other work/creations at Youtube.com.

We are currently rolling out announcements and new info about the features in Melon Quest!

Here's the latest of the first six features we've announced on melonquest.juicycupcake.com:

Towns, Villages & Quests

Throughout your adventure you will stumble upon safe towns full of quirky characters, and merchants to interact with. Some towns might be dangerous, filled with bandits and foes that will put your combat skills to the test.

You will have the option to take on branching quests from characters that you meet throughout your adventure. Some quests may lead you off the main path, while others might be just in your sight.

You could be passing by a camp with helpless creatures that need saving from terrifying beasts. Maybe saving the helpless creatures will get you into more trouble, and they are in fact the real threat. There are plenty of things out to kill you in Melon Quest.
