This is the best video game I've ever played!

by Justas (8 August 2004)

As was once said by the Homestar Runner. However, when he said it and almost every time I've used that quote, the subject at hand has never actually been a game. Until now. One day less than a week ago, on August The Second, The Brothers Chaps (creators of H*R) released "Peasant's Quest", a graphical text adventure of rather large proportions featuring Rather Dashing, a peasant wearing short pants who embarks on an incredible journey to get revenge on Trogdor the Burninator for burninating his thatched-roof cottage!


Being on fire happens to be one of the three essential components of peasanthood.
This game is simply fecking awesome. I've seen attempts of creating adventure games in Flash before, but none that I've seen has yet to come this close to perfection (feel free to point some others out in logg discussion if you know any). Now, 'perfection' is a relative term, as not everyone will consider a Flash replication of the AGI engine to be the bestest thing ever made. Well, neither do I, but it's still pretty cool. As for the non-technical side of the game, they've once again done a great jorb. The graphics are as nice as AGI imitation can go (Well, technically, as the pixels in the backgrounds aren't 2x1, they're more of an SCI art simulation, but I don't think a whole lot of people really give a crap about that right now) and the writing is pretty much the same as in the rest of the Brothers Chaps' work (which basically means 'fwicken awexome!').

Without any further ado, let's move on to paragraph number three. Which I'll start by suggest that instead of playing the game in your browser, you could download the .swf file to your hard disk by right clicking and selecting 'Save As...', because in case you also have a standalone Flash player, it's much more convenient to play the game that way. Furthermore, I suggest that you also check out the Peasant's Quest page at the Homestar Runner Wiki. Especially the Easter Eggs. And if you're relatively unfamiliar with Trogdor (who the game is muchly about), you might also check his page on the same site (which I had to update myself before writing this logg as it was too incomprehensible to link to it).
