I'm still planning to implement them into Chapter 1 via an update (which will prep the existing save file in Ch.1 so it's ready for Ch.2 as well!) and then hopefully will be able to implement the same kind of thing into Chapter 2. Though will wait until the main script has been finalised so I can implement them all in one fell swoop.

Thank you for taking the time to play through the demo and I hope you enjoyed it!
And yessss, the voice acting is a big part of what I feel makes QF really special and I'm always impressed by the amazing work the VAs put into the project as they bring the characters to life.
The last scene requires you to snub/ignore Jilly at any chance you get and reject her advances, while favouring Tari when you can. The first three choices in the game are important, leading up the moment with you and Jilly in the tent. At that point, if you reject her love and have met the previously mentioned requirements, something a little different should happen than before~
And in regards to the locked out question marks in the extras menu, those will be added in an update planned for the game.
Just the h-scenes for now, as there's a whole lot more of them this time around so that really adds to the expenses. But if things do well I could always see about going back and voicing everything that had been left out!
I wish to avoid giving a solid release date as they always seem to backfire on me, but most of the h-scene art is done as of this moment (wayyyy more art than Chapter 1, haha) and now it's just down to fleshing out all of the story parts, and event dialogue. In a perfect world I would like to try and get Chapter 2 out before 2018, so fingers crossed everything works out!
Thank you so much for you support, and it really motivates me to make the best game I can when I know how much everyone has enjoyed the first part~
I'm so glad you enjoyed Chapter One and appreciate your kind words and support!
Chapter Two is under heavy development as we speak, and the big release is more than likely still a few months away--but I actually released the first alpha build of the game out to Patreon supporters not long ago, and am planning to release the second build soon with more content. Things are going really smoothly and I can't wait to share the second chapter with the world~
Ahh, thank you so much~
I can't tell you how happy comments like this make me--knowing that someone played the game and enjoyed themselves that much. Especially knowing that it was able to provide an MGQ-like experience. I've been working hard, prioritizing the story in the second chapter (with plenty of h-scenes still, of course!) so I hope you'll enjoy what's to come, too!
Apologies for the wait. I'm really working hard on things!
I hope to have an alpha segment out on patreon this month and then hopefully can finish things up in the coming months.
In the meantime, I did release a small character trailer video for Chapter 2 if it interests you!
Thank you for your patience and support as always!
Thank you so much for the purchase and I'm glad you enjoyed chapter 1! I do apologise for the wait on chapter 2, but rest assured it's making steady progress so far and will be a far larger experience, with far more content~ No solid date yet as it's more than likely a few months away still, but I'm working hard every day to get things done.
You are very much welcome, haha~ I think there's always been monstergirl-lite things out there, but not many that focused on the femdom aspect that MGQ and Violated Hero brought about, so I took it upon myself to try and fill that void. So I'm glad you enjoyed it!
I can try my best to answer your questions, though as you say in some cases I can't fully answer everything because of spoilers and such!
I can't say much regarding Matt, though your theories are certainly unique, haha. The second chapter won't explicitly say much about him personally, though will probably make his backstory a little bit more obvious as it unravels with everything else going on around him.
"You mentioned humans, does this mean that we will get less Monstergirls? have we met all the Monsters already?"
With the capital city becoming a large, central focus of the second chapter, it was inevitable that humans would join the cast eventually. In most cases they're side characters (though this doesn't mean they won't have scenes with Matt!) but some humans such as the Queen are major characters in the plot. I'm trying to avoid filling up the cast with humans too much as I know monster girls are the main appeal, though do need a few to help the city feel lively and not just have everyone have a generic sprite/no sprite at all. I'm trying to strike a balance so that the new monster girls added will outnumber the humans added, so have no fear!
"Regarding the humans, will they be human to start with but actually be monsters when you get to know them or pursue their story?"
Welll, I don't want to spoil too much. But yes, some humans might have more to them than meets the eye. It is a monster girl game after all~
"Will we be able to actually favour a certian Monstergirl/character properly and favour the monsters over the city as well?"
While chapter one was fairly linear to a large degree with only a few branching points that ultimately really only determined the h-scene you were going to get, I'm aiming to give the player a bit more freedom in what they do/say--with the aim being that possibly in the third part Matt will be left with two major branches in the story.
Thank you very much for the questions~ Hopefully you're happy with the answers, since I had to keep vague for some parts, but I'm sure you understand. ; P
I will be holding an open casting call in the coming months. The cast is considerably larger this time around, so it's taking a while to finalise assets.
When the time comes, I'll do my best to notify people on the usual channels--twitter and such.
Awww, thank you so much~ That really means a lot to me! I'm glad you felt it was worth the purchase and I really appreciate you spreading the word. Look forward to the second chapter, and I hope I won't disappoint~
I just have to hope people don't mind some human girl interaction alongside monster girls, haha. It'll be tough to try and balance between them!
And of course! Any time~ You're more than welcome to join the Quest Failed discord server too if you ever feel like chatting about things with both myself, and other people about the game. It's pretty active, too.
Thanks for the extensive write-up on your theories and thoughts on things! It's always interested to see what people think might happen and I'm glad the characters and story were engaging enough for you to give thought to things~
Naturally I don't wanna spoil anything, but you bring up some interesting points!
In regards to Ruby, she briefly mentions a little bit about her past--though is still fairly vague--in the Christmas special I uploaded which was a bit of goofy fun that's not necessarily canon to the main story, but some parts are still connected.
The hooded girl is indeed a doll, though I suppose I wasn't too subtle about that, haha. Matt's just a little dense and confused with everything going on that he fails to see it properly.
Cynthia will be important, but with the introduction of the captial city, there becomes a clear divide between Matt's monster girl companions, and the more human friends he might make in the city. Naturally they will come clashing together eventually, but it's almost like having two harems separated by a large wall, haha.
And thank you very much~ My goal is to make Chapter 2 far larger than Chapter 1 and make it less linear, with far more variation in things to keep it interested. I really hope people will enjoy this chapter as it'll be far more story focused as things get crazy~
Sorry to hear you're having trouble unlocking the last CG scene!
The exact way to unlock it is as follows:
Choose "Eh." when Jilly asks you if you like her name.
Choose "H-hold on a second..." when Jilly is contemplating stabbing Tari.
Choose "This is a bit sudden..." when Jilly professes her love to you.
After this choice, it should be immediately obvious if you're on your way to unlocking the bonus scene, as Jilly's reaction will be different to how it usually is and the bonus scene will take place right after this.
Let me know if you have anymore issues with things and I'll try my best to help!
I try to strike a good balance between updating in places so that everyone can be informed, though there's a good chance once things are ready that Patrons will get looks into development sooner than twitter followers with some exclusive sneak peeks and such as my way of saying thanks for backing. ; P But anything really important about the development will be shared on both.
And I do have an update in the works. Ideally I'd like to release it soon but I started work on several things at once for the project so they're all progressing a little slower than I'd like, but progress is happening!
Hiya, thank you so much for the purchase, it's much appreciated~ I'm super glad to hear you enjoyed the game, too and hope you'll enjoy the future chapters to come. To answer your questions:
1 - If possible, I'll offer the final combination of all the chapters to all those who own the seperate releases but would need to explore options for how to do this. So can't say anything solid for sure yet!
2 - For the last CG scene, you have to favour Tari at every chance you get while snubbing Jilly, and the scene happens fairly early on to replace another CG scene. Hopefully that helps~
Thanks so much for your purchase and support! And I'm really glad you enjoyed it~
And Tari definitely seems to be a fan favourite, haha~ If you have twitter you should definitely let the VA for her know how much you love her character, since she absolutely adores playing Tari, too!
The question marks will unlock with new patches along the way (which will be free for all who have purchased the original game!). The first being the journal feature which will give a fun look into the characters and places that the game may have glossed over, along with some other fun things. Basically I was future proofing the chapter so that these kinds of things could be easy to add in after. Sorry for any confusion on the matter!
Thanks again! Please look forward for what's to come with the second chapter!
Thanks so much for your purchase, and I'm glad you enjoyed it! I agree that the world needs more games like this and found it was lacking so, so I made it my mission to make my own, haha~
On the subject of when Chapter Two might be released, it's had to say right now. Ideally I'd like to get it done over the next few months, falling in line with your desired range of the first quarter of next year, but I suppose everything is being planned and outlined right now. I'd like to have more content than chapter one which in theory would extend development time, but assets are being delivered at a far more rapid rate than they were for chapter one so I believe I can get it done and out the door in a timely manner.
But only time will tell I guess~
Hiya there, don't worry your English is perfectly fine!
Each chapter will be a separate game and sold separately, that's correct! But I believe that each chapter will be more than worth it and full of content. I'll also be offering a demo for each chapter too just so people can be sure.
Thanks for the support and kind words on the project, it really means a lot to me! I do apologise, as I meant to respond to your email but the impending launch on other sites kept grabbing my attention way.
Translations into other languages is something I might heavily consider in the future once all of the chapters of the game are complete, but right now chapters undergo frequent, large updates to the script with multiple additions and features being added, meaning that having a translated branch of the chapter could potentially splinter development where one branch has far more content than the other, which is something I would like to avoid happening.
However, I appreciate the enthusiasm and passion for wanting to contribute to the project, and will definitely keep you in mind when the time comes!
Some choices will carry over between chapters, yes! Such as who you have the most affection points with and other smaller details that may be referenced in subtle ways. Chapter Two will have a lot more things that will happen and potentially carry over though as it culminates to several big conclusions.
And yeah, once all the chapters are done I'll be merging into a big super game with all the parts seamlessly connected for ease of playing through.
Yeah. The game will be updated on each site it's hosted on and you can just redownload. Saves and progression should carry over as they save in a separate folder. I'll be looking at the possibility of putting up a patch file as will that you simply drag and drop to your existing game folder, but will need to see how viable that is.
Thank you so much for purchasing and going through Chapter One. I'm really glad you enjoyed it and hope you'll look forward to what's to come!
Regarding the voice clips, this was a solution put in place due to time constraints for the first chapter's release. Where, I have all of the relevant voice clips for the remaining characters, but didn't have the time to edit them in and put them in alongside suitable dialogue. I figured rather than have it half done for some characters, but other characters be completely silent, to just mute them all completely for the time being.
They will return in full force with the new patch though, alongside a new h-scene and some other little bonus things, so they're not gone forever!
And regarding the text glitch you seem to be experiencing--I'll have to look into it more. Thank you for bringing it to my attention!
Not currently, unfortunately. It's available on Windows/Mac/Linux devices. I believe the engine I'm on can port to mobile devices, but it might need a bit of work to do so. I'll look into options in the future!
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it~
Are you referring to the last one in the gallery? It is locked, though you can unlock it if you make the correct choices. For a small hint, that last one isn't in chronological order like the others and is more as a bonus in place of a far earlier CG.
Though if you need further help I can give you the solution!
As long as you're an active Patron at the time and have donated $10+ or more, you'll be guaranteed a DRM free copy of the chapter on release. Since I'm still growing and have few enough Patrons to manage, I may be able to backdate whoever has donated $10 or more in the past and give them a copy, too even if they weren't still currently pledged, but the more things grow the more difficult it might be to manage that.
And to clear up any confusion, DRM free simply means it's a download of the game you download, and then can run without needing any kind of password/account like steam or anything.
If I were to go back on previous chapters and enhance them, I would probably do that when the full 'story' is complete and I merge all the chapters together into one game and polish it up here and there and tweak some things based on feedback to create the perfect story at the end of it all.
Only time will tell how well the overall Patreon will do over the months! I'll just have to keep consistent with my progress and continue to deliver updates that people are happy with in order to sustain growth, or at the very least keep the people I have happy~
I have a rather large planned out story that will unfold over the chapters, so fear not. I've put a lot of thought into how key points will go down, even if Chapter One doesn't seem too 'grand' and focuses largely on a small amount of characters, it'll still lead into bigger things, I promise!
Hiya, thanks for giving the demo a go I appreciate it! Glad to hear you enjoyed it as well.
In response to more action CGs, I definitely agree that they would help certain scenes come alive since there's only so much screen shaking and words can convey at times, but at the same time Chapter One was being made with a very constrained, modest budget in mind whereby I was making every penny count and ensuring I hit a good number of h-scenes. Future h-scenes past the first two are actually fairly elaborate, too, with many parts and phases to them to better represent the action, so I have the feeling people are really going to like how the scenes go down!
But moving on with Chapter Two onwards, providing sales are good and the Patreon keeps healthy, I would really like to see about having more non-h related CG scenes for the more dramatic story moments, and possibly building up to certain h-scenes too. I'll really have to play it by ear on release of Chapter One and see how things go.
Apologies for confusion on the availability of the game on its release. I'll try to clear that up once the first chapter is out. Each subsequent chapter will be sold as a commercial game upon completion and sold on both itch.io, and various other storefronts that may be interested in selling my game. Those that subscribe to my Patreon will get access to the game as it comes out along with any subsequent chapter so long as they're subscribed still, along with any bonus one-off scenes or content that may be created.
Thanks again for playing through it and sharing your thoughts! If you ever have any other questions on things or feel perhaps one of my answers wasn't clear enough in some way, let me know and I'll be happy to help!
