Plebby Quest: The Crusades -?

Just stumbled across this. Anyone playing?

It seems to have a strong "Montjoie" vibe, if anyone remembers that game (I'm sure some folks around here must!).

Will pick up, esp. for $16 -- need to find time to play and will post impressions, but wondering if anyone here has given this a try. Looks fun!

Never heard of this but it looks very cool!
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

Montjoie is an awesome game.  I've been stalking Plebby but haven't pulled the trigger yet.  A lot of people are having issues running it.

Sadly, that was true about Montjoie, too.  :'(

I was wondering when someone would post about Plebby Quest.

I saw that and it looked like it would be a fun game.

I played the demo for Montjoie! and loved it.

Or his deserts are small,
Who dares not put it to the touch

I very much enjoyed the digital version of Montjoie! long ago.  I actually happened upon my backup installer the other day, while looking for something else, and wondered if it currently works on Win10.

May have to check out Plebby Quest very soon!   :coolsmiley:
