Realms of Quest V is in the works

Ghislain is currently working on the next game in the Realms of Quest series (Realms of Quest V) for the Commodore VIC-20 computer. Each game in this series always manages to outdo the previous ones in many ways. From the looks of this new one, this will be the best one yet.

Options from the menu screen allow to toggle between two Tile types (Multi-Color which should look well on a real VIC-20 with CRT monitor and is similar in style to the Realms of Quest III overland map area…

Multi-Color with Legacy Font

…or Hi-Resolution for modern flatscreen monitors, which has a more Ultimate Quest style feel) or for whichever one the player prefers to use.  + other options, (up to 4 save game slots, music on/off toggle, multiple fonts to choose from [Deluxe, Legacy, Fat128, System], and multiple disk drive options.

Hi-Resolution with Deluxe Font

There are now player character portraits. Check it out.

You can create up to 10 characters in your party and each character can have an ally/familiar. Player’s alignment, sex, race and class icons appear to the right. Hit points in purple, spell points in blue, and current status in light blue to the left of the name.
