By Marty Mulrooney

Annas Quest Dane Krams Interview

Alternative Magazine Online reviewed point-and-click adventure game Anna’s Quest in September 2015, describing it as “a beautiful 2D point-and-click adventure game that does more than enough to stand out from the crowd.” The game had been on our radar since its original incarnation – Anna’s Quest Vol. 1: Winfriede’s Tower – was released in 2012, which we described as “indie adventure gaming at its finest.” In short, Anna’s Quest is pretty awesome.

Alternative Magazine Online reviewed Anna’s Quest Vol. 1: Winfriede’s Tower – created by Australian game developer Dane Krams – in 2012, describing it as “indie adventure gaming at its finest.” In a follow-up interview that same year, Mr Krams revealed his plan to release two more ‘volumes’, completing the game as a trilogy. Instead, in 2014 it was announced that Krams Design had teamed up with Daedalic Entertainment to finish the project and release it as one complete adventure game – something that wasn’t originally possible at the time. The finished result is simply titled Anna’s Quest and was released in summer 2015. Grab your keyboard and mouse brave adventurer: it’s finally time to save young Anna’s grandpa and defeat the evil witch Winfriede once and for all!
