nfamous Quests’ Kickstarted Tale Releases Today for PC and Linux on Steam, GOG


SAN JOSE, Calif. – July 10, 2014Phoenix Online Publishing is excited to announce that Quest for InfamyTM, a humorous role-playing game inspired by classic adventures in which you play the charming villain, releases today for PC and Linux on Steam,, the Phoenix Online Store and other online retailers for $19.99. Consisting of over 200 beautifully hand-drawn scenes, and offering customizable spells, and three characters classes with unique storylines, players will lie, cheat and steal their way through turn-based RPG battles and adventure game puzzles on their way to infamy!

Meet William Roehm, witty and irreverent bastard, as he comes to the town of Volksville after slipping out of the Baron’s castle in the middle of the night, where he may or may not have dishonored the man’s daughter (spoiler alert: he did). Choose to play between the stealthy Rogue, the burly Brigand and the spell-wielding Sorcerer as Roehm ventures through the Valley of Krasna earning Infamy Points and, if he has time, saving the Kingdom of Lonaria as well.

“Quest for Infamy is the culmination of years of dreaming,” said Steven Alexander, company co-founder and designer of Quest for Infamy. “We wanted to create a game that combined the classic elements of adventure games we loved and role-playing elements as well, add our unique sense of humor and a touch of an epic story to create a memorable and authentic experience that would evoke feelings of nostalgia for the days of classic adventure gaming.”
