From Homestar Runner comes Peasant's Quest, a hilariously funny game that pokes fun at itself and the text-based adventures and 8-bit graphics of years gone by. Boasting “lush 16-color landscapes,” this game puts you in the shoes of a short-panted peasant named Rather Dashing who sets out on a quest of revenge against the Wingaling dragon, Trogdor the Burninator, who burninated your tiny thatched-roof cottage along with all your goods and services. Full of wit and humor, the game will keep you entertained for a couple of hours.
You'll have to type your actions in at the bottom of the game window just like in the olden days, so if you're easily frustrated by games of interactive fiction and text-based adventures, this may not be the best game for you. If you stick with it, however, you're sure to get a laugh.
The game was created by Videlectrix, the fictitious game company of Homestar Runner, makers of fine retro games like Trogdor, also on Homestar Runner.
Great game! :)
I finished the game but .... what the heck was the point of that naked guy who randomly poked his head out from behind the tree? he dosnt seem to be able to be interacted with.
Doodle, that is Naked Ned.
oh ill definitely go on and finish this.
It has a funny note if you write DIE.
Can you do anything after you throw the sword? The end seems pointless otherwise
what do i do to have to talk to archer number 2?
Jay can I have a hint? I am stuck in this game...I have taken the chicken feed and thrown it in the lake. Then I got the stones. So now I have 5 points. What do I do next?!?!?!?!?!
Here's a walkthrough if you are stuck.
how do you get more than 150 points? i know you can i just dont know how...
You can't anymore. The game designers have corrected the element allowing for 152 points- get a second arrow, and the game will let you know just that.
Don't forget the map in the BURNiNATED COTTAGE! Ha, ha.
I'm seriously stuck on Archery game!! Im tried aiming the red spot at the same place all the time, but the arrows go in another direction! Help!!
If you notice on the right side of the target, there's something blowing in the wind. You have to take the wind into account if you want your arrow to hit the bullseye.
Has anyone ever played King's Quest? It might be too old school for most of the younger players here, but man, I loved that series. That's what this game is based off of. :D
Um, you do know that Videlectrix isn't a real company right?
A nice throwback bit would have been if they'd said "press return" instead of "press enter"
Did You know that if you say hug the tree You go to a tree and hug it, once you do u can't get off, so If you put Get off tree or something it says "You WISH you could do that!" So i got stuck there.
I jumped into the hay and now I cant get out.
i don't get how you can beat the arrow game. I don't know how to use the wind to help me. So can you help me?
Just so you guys know, if Peasant's Quest looks up-side down today, don't worry. It's an April Fool's Joke apperantly affecting the whole site, just for today.
oh, the days of hugo's house of horrors and the like.. good times! really, someone ought to make a flash version of that.
how do I attack trogdor?
whaT DO i SAY?!
use sword noob
I cant seem to throw the chicken feed into the lake all the old man does is tell me that it wont work for bait and i'm right back were i started.any help would be nice
I got the bow, but I can't do anything without arrows! Where can I get them?
Never mind! I found them.
For people who were stuck like me:
You know the archer's brother?
What was he doing when you found him?
He was practicing his archery skills!
how do you get the bucket back up once you put the rocks in it
To get the bucket back up you type
it is very easy
don't kick old gary the horse.....he kinda kicked me back
Lol great game, try typing cheat lol.
i love this game. i feel the kerrek was unnecessarily scary, though. *shudder*
Hey Jay, this is (I think) the only homestar runner link game you have on the site. (I don't really play the games) But I saw a video of "Wheres an Egg" and it's funny. (DC made the video.)
When the flag is unfurled all the way, move the bow so the very edge of it is touching the side of the black on the opposite side than the flag is pointing. Then line up the arrows with the red line and you have a bullseye.
When the wind is not blowing at all, line up your arrow with the bullseye mark and the two little arrows with the red line. Bullseye.
That was Awesome!
I love the bit where I find the robe after breaking into the mysterious hut. I shut the drawer of the dresser after I stole the robe and a message said:
"Awwh, aren't you helpful and boring! After you break into someone's cottage and steal their stuff you tidy up after yourself! What a saint!"
