Message from Alina
Hey guys! I'm so glad you're enjoying NostalgiaQuest -- I wanted a reward awesome enough and, for lack of a better word, nostalgic enough, for all our heroes from 2008... and this seemed the best (nay, the only!) thing to do.
It was a long, crazy, super-full month of birthdays, anniversaries, vacations, and work on things that kept pulling me away from NostalgiaQuest, and I really appreciate everyone's patience as it was built... and as it came down to the wire to release in October. (Servers came back up at 11:57 PM EST... /cheer!)
Though NostalgiaQuest has been a personal project built almost entirely on the weekends, I can't let it release without giving credit to the many artists, animators, writers, and designers who worked on the game and created the assets used in NostalgiaQuest. And HUGE thanks to Asuka, Zuto, and Rickyb20, who were testing the release until the very, VERY last minute. I still have some rewards to add and a few tweaks to make to the quests (refining drop rates, explaining where to go for some of the rewards*, etc)... but the deadline was made, NostalgiaQuest IS out, and for all our 2008 heroes... enjoy!
Thank you all so much for having battled alongside us all these years. Without you guys, and the many heroes who came after you (and who will unlock NostalgiaQuest in the future), we would not be here, and could not update the game each week.
