Default Christmas Quest 2, anyone?

It's here! The moment hopefully someone besides our mothers have been waiting for! An early Christmas present from us to you.

Merry Christmas, AG.

I'm stuck already. I know, I'm hopeless. Pleeeeease don't leave me hanging like this on Christmas Eve! Help!

Spoiler:
Okay, I have a mitt, a corkscrew, a broken faucet, and the ultipan. None will combine for me with anything else, and I can't turn the banana shaped knobs as is.


The lines are hilarious - you guys must have had great fun coming up with them.

Default Christmas Quest 2!

Ooooo Awesome!

Ill probably download the later version aswell cause allot of these bugs are kinda freaky...well the only bug Ive seen is to do with walk paths (especialy with the elf Moonwalking...or was that intentional? )

I'm stuck now though, used up half my inventory and have made no progress

FGM, can you start a thread in Hints? I'll help you over there. I'd rather leave this thread for overall feedback.

Panthera, same to you. If you're stuck in CQ1 (great idea to play that first!), feel free to post in Hints.

I'd love to say it was, but I'd be lying.

Really, though, I don't want to scare people off by mentioning the bugs. It's really nothing that should disrupt the game. Just a few things that you'll know we didn't intend exactly as it appears.

I don´t hear any music when I am playing. Should there be talk in the beginning like that was talk in the beginning in the first game. Anyone else having this silence ingame?

There's no voice narration (yet, possibly ever). You should definitely be hearing music, though. There are sound options in the Winsetup file in the game directory. You might try playing with those, and/or maybe turning sound acceleration down.

You could try what I have to do, since Windows keeps resetting it .

In the advanced volume controls there may be a setting labelled "SW Synth" (you may have to add it to the list in preferences), which keeps resetting itself to minimum on my PC. When I raise it again the music suddenly becomes audible.

You would not believe how annoying this was for me.

Heh. If we could have, we would have, believe me. It's been insane enough just getting an almost-finished version out when we did.

Tsa, sorry about your pre-Christmas disappointment. Hope the game gave you a bit of cheer, at least.

Wee, they've done it again! Downloading now. I wonder if they solved the massive cliffhanger from part 1. Which I played this November in anticipation for this sequel.

Woo hoo! The CQ2 update is now complete, so if you were holding out for the final version, the wait is over! This is as good as it's gonna get.

Thanks for the game AG staff, it was sure a fun game to play during Christmas. I finally completed it a few moments ago.

I hope that everyones Christmas holidays went well and with lots of cheers, my holidays turned out to be really tough on the emotional side and the last few months too, that's why I haven't been here in a long time. I might go back in the shadows now, but who knows...

It's done in AGS, which I think allows some games to be played on Macs if you've downloed the Mac beta binaries to do it. I don't know much about it, though, so if you're interested you can read more about it in this AGS forum thread.

Thank you Adventure Gamers.com!
Christmas Quest 2 is just as good as the one we got last year, perhaps a bit better even. I especially liked all the references to other adventure games. Like the frozen hamster in the fridge and that horrible "simon says" thing from Fahrenheit.
I'm already salivating in anticipation of Christmas Quest 3!
