    Quest Recommendation

    Suppose you had to nominate the best X quests released in the past few years (where X is relatively small, say, <= 5). These quests should
    - run without serious bugs on the 2.50.2 player;
    - have a release date of 2014 or later;
    - not be authored by yourself.

    Which quests would you pick?

    I'm too tired to try to pick five, but you can flip through my suggestions and see what interests you, by style.

    2014 and later:
    Brock Lesnar
    Eiyuu
    (The) Flow of Time (Remastered)
    Forbidden Ascent
    Guardian Mother
    In The Lost Kingdom of The Banana Blood God
    Isle of Rebirth
    Light of the Heavens 3
    Nagrad's Trail
    Passage Through Time (story, items, and length; but it's a very easy quest)
    Randomizer Alpha
    Summoning War
    Tower of Courage
    Umbral Cloud


    2012-2013:
    The Darkness Within
    The Darknut Within
    Engage to Zeldawok
    GRIKARUGUN (Shmup)
    Link Stuck in Castlevania
    Link's Quest for the Hookshot, part 2
    Quest 744

    I'd suggest watching some LP footage of anything that you think might interest you, so that you have a good feeling for its direction. All of these quests make very good use of 2.5 features.

    That's more than "<= 5" ZoriaRPG.

    You also forgot to mention Zodiac which was finally finished last year. (Side scrolling and 100% scripted weapons/enemies/bosses/subscreens/etc.) Warning; some areas and bosses are hard.

    Oh? I thought that Zodiac was still going through refinements, so sure. That's another great script showcase, although I'm not particularly good at the game.

    The problem is, that if you asked me to pick the top three quests of each specific style, or genre, I could so it readily. The variety of what is done in ZC is so dramatically different now, when compared to 2009-10, that a top five quests list just doesn't work for me.

    But hey now, your GRIKARUGUN is on my top quests list: I'm better at that, then Zodiac BTW. I think what gave me severe problems with Zodiac, is that enemies infinitely respawn when you enter screens, which because it's a sidescroller without panning, can happen three times in ten seconds. It has a high frustration factor, but it's an immensely creative, and well-constructed game.

    I also wanted to show what types of creative things are being done with ZScript, but this isn't by any means a singular, or defining factor of my choices. In that, missing Zodiac is a pivotal oversight, given that it has what; somewhere around 200k lines of ZScript under its belt?

    The ZASM output required me to add two digits to my SciTE line count indicator, out to 8 digits, or something obscene. Just imagine doing that in 2004/5!
