About the Story

Are you worthy? Do you possess Courage, Wisdom, Justice, Magnanimity, Temperance, Passion, Magnificence, Wit, Good Will, and Honesty? You will need all of these to challenge the Caretaker and transport Arete from the White Halls. In this game, you must navigate a series of quests to unlock these ten virtues and become worthy of Arete. Test yourself; become worthy.

This game production was led by Dr. Judith Pintar and Dr. Dene Grigar with support from Greg Philbrook. The Quest for Arete was created by students in the Fall 2020 Video Game Theories and History class within the Creative Media and Digital Culture Program at WSU Vancouver. The game was enhanced by a subset of these students led by Jazz Jackson. The team included Katya Farinsky, Betsy Hanrahan, Elyse Mollahan, Viet Anh Nguyen, Preston Reed, David Sabrowski, Andrew Swanson, Andrew Thompson, Brandan Touhey, Craig Vesterby, Keegan Walden, and Ruth Woodcock. Special thanks to Kathleen Zoller for playtesting.

The game is submitted to the AdventureX Game Jam 2020.
