Save Yourself Quest by Knit-i-Fine

Save Yourself Quest is the first quest by Knit-i-Fine. It is a horror/urban fantasy quest who's primary goal is to guide the protagonist, a young woman named Ella, from the brink of suicide and out of the traumatizing hell dimension she's found herself in. Save Yourself Quest is written mostly in second person.


Save Yourself Quest's main interactive mechanic after the input associated with all quests are four humour meters, inspired by an earlier understanding of medicine called humourism. When these humours are out of an individual character's balancing point the character has a tendency to act erratic, and whenever a humour maxes out a character enters a crisis where their actions are highly unpredictable. It's been speculated that crisis can obscure some of a characters normal traits.


Save Yourself Quest uses a simple and arbitrary inventory system of "what can this character carry?" with the original inventory screen showing items held in the right and left hands, and kept in the right or left pocket. However the inventory screen seems to adapt often due to repeated changes to character sheet design.

Save Yourself Quest draws inspiration from a wide variety of sources. Notably influences from World of Darkness (Promethean: The Created, Hunter: The Vigil and Changeling: The Lost) are especially evident as the narrative progresses. Naturally it also takes inspiration from Ruby Quest.
