🏆 2023 Playdate Community Awards: Outstanding Visual Achievement in a Pulp Game Winner!

Words from the developers - "I am extremely honored to receive this award from the Playdate community, and it is your generosity that inspires me to continue creating new stories and games. I would also like to thank my "partner in sound," Pedro Buitrago (aka BeepsNBoops) whose fantastic work often inspires me in new directions during game development. And of course, a huge thank you to the amazing folks at Panic who have helped to further democratize game-making and build an awesome community here, allowing us to feel a part of this unique, creative medium and its colorful history."

Set initially in 14th century France, Quest For The X places you in the role of Guy de Canet, a Knight Templar living during the final days of the order. Racing against time and the plot of King Philip to destroy the Templars, you soon come to realize there is more at stake than just the order itself. Control over powerful artifacts, knowledge of life's true origins, and the fate of mankind itself are revealed to you in the course of this epic and expansive retro adventure.

Quest for the X pays homage to others which have gone before it, including: Pitfall II: The Lost Caverns (Atari 2600), Conan (Apple IIe), The Return of Heracles (Atari 800), Bruce Lee and Zorro (C64), Out Of This World (SNES), and Space Quest 3, The Secret of Monkey Island, and Indiana Jones & The Fate Of Atlantis (PC).
