Pulling in elements of both classic Zelda and Super Mario Maker, Quest Master has a really entertaining idea that sees you design dungeons and go on adventures. The developer has now announced they plan to release it into Early Access on May 29th, and there's a big demo refresh now available to try out. It also has Native Linux support. 

You get to dream up multi-tiered dungeons full of levers, timed switches, moving platforms, then add infinite verticality with stairwells and abyssal holes and so much more. Oh, there's monsters too, because what's a dungeon crawler without something to bash with a sword or a bow.

In the new demo, utilize updated building tools to fabricate perilous journeys and perplexing puzzle-filled dungeons across multiple themes, including ornate temples, volcanic caverns, and labyrinthine lairs. Train for combat in the dojo, and test one’s luck in mini-games for prizes like Lucky’s Locks where heroes hunt for a loot-filled chest hidden amongst empty containers.

“Our community has been very supportive and vocal, and we’re happy to implement some of their requests in both the Early Access launch and the new demo,” said Julian Creutz, Lead Developer of Quest Master. ”The user-created dungeons we’ve seen from demo players have been mind-blowing, and we can’t wait to provide even more creative tools to quest masters around the world.”

You can wishlist / follow and try the demo on Steam.

Apogee!
I know they are only the publisher of this game, but I remember when they were developers. I have fond memories of playing hours of Duke Nukem and Duke Nukem II on MS-DOS. They also did the publishing of one of my favorite games, Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure. I played more of Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure than I did of the Duke Nukem series. If time allows, I will be downloading the Quest Master demo this evening to give it a spin.

Looks interesting. I wanted to try the demo, but after clicking on Play, and then pressing a key to wake a bedridden character, the character jumps out of bed, then demo just hangs for me. (All keys failed to perform any action, so I had to quit and kill the game.)

I tried Proton Experimental, Proton 9, Steam Linux Runtime - None of these got me past the problem.

The Developer fixed the issue while I was waiting, so the keyboard problem is no longer happening.

im sure this will be a lot of fun, but what i like the most about zelda, was that i saw a lot of things for the first time on it.
the issue with playing the second zelda game is that most of the things are repeated, only a few new itens and puzzles.
and in the case of an maker this problem only get worse, each custom made level will remind me again and again that this is not the reason why i like this type of game, i hope people can find an way to create unique puzzles despite the limitations of the tool.

Well, it's not like Nintendo are inclined to make more Zeldas like this now that they've taken the series in an entirely different direction! Good on these guys for continuing on with something that there's still plenty of demand for.
