       KQ - an adventure game




       KQ  is  an  adventure  game  in the spirit of old console games such as
       Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy or Zelda.

       You control an adventurer,  to  be  chosen  amongst  eight  differently
       skilled  characters  (a  warrior,  a  priest,  a thief, etc.), across a
       journey to find the magical Staff of Xenarum. Some  subquests  will  be
       available to you as well.

       You  can  find money in several places, but mostly by fighting monsters
       outside of towns. You  can  then  spend  this  money  in  towns  buying
       equipment,  weaponry,  medicine,  magical  items, spells and many more.
       Towns are also a common place to gather information or restore  health.

       You  will  be  able  to  save  your game, but only outside of towns and
       caves, or in special areas known as "save spots".

       A plot summary, a list of heroes, characters and  enemies,  information
       about  locations and objects, a world map and much more information can
       be         found          at          the          KQ          webpage:
