Progress Quest For the RPG player on the go. Its satire and a game (minus gameplay) at the same time.

i found the idea of this interesting and ran it a couple of months ago. however the guilt of running a game with no gameness at work got the better of me, and my head couldn't handle it. had to scrap it.

All of my friends are playing it now, and it's amazing how competitive we get -- even though it's not even up to skill or playing ability.

Oddly enough, the alpha player in our group is doing quite well.

Ah... nothing like sitting here with a a cup of coffee while effortlessly seeking the Magnificent Corset. Look, ma! No more carpal tunnel!

Awesome silliness. Thanks for sharing.

I was trying to catch up in PQ, and tried to buy a character on eBay but the final price was too high...

From the download page, the best software terms of use I've yet seen. I should show this to my employers...
Meanwhile, the terms of use of all versions of Progress Quest software are presumptive. As such, the following conditions hold:
  • There are presumed to be terms and conditions of use of Progress Quest, and they are further presumed to be exactly what they may reasonably be presumed to be by you, the user, and myself, the developer.
  • Where there is a difference between what the user and myself presume in this regard, my presumption takes precedence.

This reminds me very much of Statbuilder, the ultimate CRPG

It amazes how many people have been running this program for extended periods of time. Seeing how its meaningless other than a way to show how much electricity one has wasted on cpu cycles....

Darke : SETI@Home and other suck distributed computing program ought to learn from this.

Obviously none of you have enabled ProgressQuest's 3D mode! It makes a huge difference in gameplay.

Darke: Go have an ice cream cone.

Geez...

Darke and sikander, If you're both so badly in need of meaning why not run United Devices/Intel's cancer screensaver?
