Trap Quest Release 13 Version 9.1 (a.k.a. Halloween Edition)

This version's banner image is by Icarus, who just the other day made his SubscribeStar free for everyone! Go check it out.

Release 13 Version 10.0 is not yet complete. This is just a small bonus release, with some updated Halloween stuff and some bug fixes, to keep you busy until the main release comes out, hopefully at the end of this week, but quite possibly the week after.

How to Download

Trap Quest was created with Inform. To play a work like this one, you need to download two different things:

1) A glulxe interpreter program (you open this program and then select the game file): many are available, Windows Git is strongly recommended for any machine that can run it (if your overzealous antivirus has a problem with area57's improved speed version, there's an older official version here). Another interpreter called Gargoyle is available on multiple platforms but is more prone to crashes. If you're having trouble consult this page.

2) The game file: This file will end in '.gblorb' and will be around 550MB large (there's a lot of images in this game!). There are 4 different versions because there are 4 different publicly available character windows you can use. Previews of the different versions' Character Windows can be seen here.
The versions with the 5th window, the Clothing window, are available from our Patreon posts and SubscribeStar posts.

If you're brand new and struggling to choose which version to try, Aika personally recommends Danaume. It's the original, classic TQ artwork, and focuses on character body state rather than worrying about trying to represent odd random things from the surrounding environment.

You can download the version of your choice from the links below.

Known Issues

  • Updating to the latest version of the MacBook operating system no longer supports WINE. If this is the case for you, I'm afraid you'll need to run Windows in a Virtual Machine or otherwise fully emulate Windows to play Trap Quest on your computer using the recommended Windows Git. Your other option is to try Gargoyle (see here).
  • In some interpreters, on some people's computers, with some of the more complex character windows (mainly Wonderfuller and Clothing), undo is failing to work because the interpreter's undo buffer isn't large enough to handle the game.

Changelist

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

  • Halloween mode will be enabled by default, but all players can disable and enable it at will in the Normal Start options (look for the option called 'ENABLE SEASONAL CONTENT' after you choose your name).
    • Remember, Quick Start is disabled while Halloween mode is enabled. This is because the game needs to carefully load some things in the correct order in order to give you the starting cutscene and choices.
  • That's right, choices! You'll still always start in the mansion as the trick or treater, but ou can now choose between three trick or treater outfits, with different quests.
    • Sexy Nun - blesser and vampire hunter. The 'short and sweet' option!
      • There are no cultists in the mansion at the start.
      • Start with a set of blessed clothing that boosts your stats.
      • All you have to do is walk into the rooms with the holy symbols to bring them back to life.
        • BUT, any you miss before you decide to stop being a 'purifier' will be inactive for your whole run.
      • You also have a wooden stake, and if you can manage to defeat the vampiress, you can complete your quest the badass way, by using the wooden stake on her.
    • Sexy Skeleton (a new outfit from Wishberri!) - standard trick or treater with a small twist
      • Find (and eat) the candy to be allowed to leave.
      • The hellhound / puppy slave always starts spawned, and always turns aggressive if you're wearing bone themed clothing.
      • There are no ghosts in the mansion at the start.
    • Sexy Witch - doom quest. The more involved option.
      • The doom ritual starts immediately, and you get the doom notes immediately.
      • You start with a decent amount of magic and a spell.
      • The witch gives you a goblet full of cum, allowing you to access the necronomicon from her library immediately, which gives you some early capability for magic combat.
      • You aren't restricted to the mansion - you can leave whenever you like, which is kind of critical since you're going to need a bell and a candle.
      • Get even more magic power as a reward for stopping the ritual and sealing Azathot away!

TWEAKS

  • Cultists can now give you a candle when you demand an item from them.
  • When the vampiress successfully instructs you to get on your knees, an unlucky roll will make you lose a turn (and therefore potentially allow her to immediately engage in sex).

FIXES

  • [Egg Laying] NPCs can no longer remove facehuggers for you when trying to have sex with you.
  • Fixed a bug where underwear was always partially visible under short skirts.
  • Fixed a bug where other adventurers could leave their region, and encounter sex scenes, even when you weren't in the room to witness it.
  • Fixed a bug where other adventurers (even ones that know just worked as hotel prostitutes) would run away screaming in fear from a player at maximum appearance (20/20).
  • Fixed a bug where the button to place your runic headband on the dungeon altar was instead placing the ritual beads on the altar.
  • Fixed a bug where when getting fondled in the hot tub, all the arousal hits you at the end of your time in the hot tub.
  • Fixed an issue with the sissy staple where its description implied that if you were caged and plugged it wouldn't transform you over the time. In fact, it still transforms you, just in ways that (mostly) help you.
  • Fixed several issues where salves, when applied to the body (and therefore counted as worn), were causing some bugs in parts of the code that assumed that the only things you could wear were clothes and tattoos.
  • Fixed a bug where Barbara could make male players pregnant with her new pregnancy swap move. Instead, this can now instantly TG male players who have enabled TG and are eligible for transformation, but other male players cannot be affected by this ability.
  • Fixed an issue where the description for the salve of erasure was wrong.
  • Fixed an issue where the bandages spawned in the players inventory by the nurse background could be taken from the dungeon shop, resulting in them having a buggy status.
  • Fixed a bug where there was nothing to prevent you just removing some of the items that the senior robobellboy could force on you.
