The first chapter has been released! You may purchase it at Nutaku by clicking HERE.
(An official itch.io release, and other sites, will follow in the next couple of weeks)
(Please note that this visual novel is a work-in-progress, meaning not all assets are final, and content is subject to change as development of the game moves forward. Additionally, this is an adult visual novel with a heavy focus on scenes of a sexual nature and as such, should only be played by those of legal age.)

Quest Failed is an episodic adult visual novel currently in development, focusing on the journey of an aspiring adventurer, and the various creatures he encounters in his quests; of which he ultimately succumbs to each time.
What starts as a series of failed quests for the poor adventurer--and the various monsters that seem to tag along with him whether he likes it or not with each subsequent failure--soon spirals into something greater as he stumbles upon a village in flames, an undead horde, and a mysterious girl commanding said zombies.
Could this adventurer's fate be tied into far greater things than he could ever imagine? Or will he end up becoming little more than a toy to the monster girls that stalk his every movement? It's up to you to decide!
Quest Failed currently features:
- Five different monster girls, each more feisty than the last as they come crashing into the poor adventurer's life
- Several, expansive h-scenes for each monster girl, with a variety of layers to each part to give a greater scope to the action taking place
- Fully voiced h-scenes for each of the monster girls
- A variety of voice clips for more general dialogue (though this could potentially evolve into a fully voiced game provided the funding is met)
The cast of monsters girls will also grow with each chapter as it's released, ensuring that by the end of the tale there's going to be more monster girls than the adventurer ever bargained for!
Jilly, the Mischievous Slime Girl
The first monster girl the main character has the misfortune of meeting.
She is a bouncy, friendly and fun-loving slime, opting to tag along with the MC for her own amusement, viewing him as one of the few humans that she can approach without fear of being smushed beyond repair. Though, her playfulness can perhaps get a little out of hand the more excited she gets, spelling trouble for the MC.
Nefertari, the Sleepy Mummy
A perpetually sleepy mummy, roused from her centuries long slumber by the unsuspecting main character who stumbles upon her resting place.
A lot of the sleepy mummy's history is shrouded in mystery, with even Tari herself not being able to recall much of her past life, or even what she had for breakfast, for that matter. Despite this, she is a friendly, caring individual. ...Even if her hugs can end up being just a touch too strong for most spines to withstand.
Her bandages appear to have a mind of their own and act according to her emotions; ensnaring and capturing those whose 'warmth' she wishes to take, needing to sustain herself on energy borrowed from others due to her undead nature.

The demo introduces both Jilly and Nefertari, each of whom has a fully voiced h-scene. Hopefully this will give a good sense as to what the finished chapter may look like once done,
As mentioned, the project is still very much a work in progress and elements are subject to change, based on feedback, or if I personally feel they need changing later on; this includes both the script, art assets, and anything else, too.
Some assets are currently placeholder, like the royalty free music in place, and large parts of the UI. My biggest regret was being unable to put in proper sound effects for the demo. This will of course all be given a makeover come the final release, and each and every scene will have all the proper sound effects!
If you have any thoughts on the demo, changes you would like to see, or run into any issues, please feel free to get in contact with me at email@example.com. I've tried my best to play through it as many times as I could to catch out any errors, but on the off chance something goes wrong let me know and I'll have a fix as fast as I can.
You may follow me on Twitter (@frost-works) , too, for sporadic updates on things. Now that the work on the demo is complete, development of the game will be far more rapid than it has been in recent months, and I'll have plenty to show moving forward!
Thank you for your time and I hope you enjoy the demo~
Additionally, if you would like to support the game further while it's being developed, please feel free to take a look at the Frostworks Patreon, of which offers a variety of custom content tiers for those that may want their own monster girl stories or custom games created!
